From gorgeous gingham to 60s psychedelics to flirty feminine florals, the Spring/Summer 2015 collections shown at last week’s New York Fashion Week (NYFW) were screaming with style and bursting with color. Here are some of our top favorite fabrics and prints we saw strutting down the runway:


Giungham FabricsGingham got a girly makeover at NYFW. Many designers incorporated this traditional check into sleek, feminine silhouettes in a range of fun colors like reddish orange/white gingham, turquoise gingham, red gingham, blue gingham, navy gingham, and lime gingham.


Poplin FabricsTibi gave the ever-popular poplin fabric a romantic twist by constructing feminine dresses and blouses out of the strong shirting fabric.


Floral Print fabricsFlirty, feminine floral patterns continue to be a fashionable mainstay, making an appearance in multiple designers’ collections in knee-length sheath and daytime dresses.

Psychedelic 60s Patterns

60s FabricsJeremy Scott teamed up with the funky singer/actress Miley Cyrus for his collection at NYFW this year. The result? A psychedelic 60s rainbow flower-power teenage explosion.

Tropical PrintsTropical Prints

Elizabeth and James turned quirky tropical prints into sophisticated styles by paring down the traditional bright colors (and using more subdued hues like raspberry minky tropical and dark sapphire minky tropical) and combining them with other patterns in one outfit – a clear trend across the NYFW board.

3d FabricsSequins and 3D Florals

Sequined 3-dimensional flowers attached to flowing mesh fabrics like soft pink stretch mesh were a popular girlish element in the collection of Michael Kors, who often paired the highly texturized fabric with streamlined conservative button-up shirts.

Multi Directional Stripes

Stripes FabricsDesigners like J Crew had an interesting take on stripes at NYFW (a leftover trend from previous season’s fashions), combining multidirectional stripes in one outfit and often times even in one garment.

Raw Silk FabricRaw Silk

Luxurious raw silks in neutral colors like golden tan silk dupioni, cream silk dupioni and ivory silk dupioni were carefully crafted by designer The Row into gorgeous draping gowns and billowing silhouettes.

Colored Leopard FabricColored Leopard Print

Last but not least, leopard continues its status as a MVP in the trending prints arena, appearing in fun colors like purple leopard print jersey knit and beige/fuschia leopard double knit.
