The sun has set on another New York Fashion Week. Check our coverage of what went down and stay tuned for what’s in store—more Fashion Weeks are coming fast. Because, as our Senior Writer Laura Cassidy likes to say, Fashion Week is really a month.

NYFW was about women’s wear, but of course men came to the shows and strutted in the streets. Click through the slideshow below and you’ll find style icons like Nick Wooster and trends like ripped-hem pants, sweat shorts worn with oxfords shirts, fuzzy loafers, leather trenches and loads of beadwork.

YOU ARE HERE: Nordstrom’s Fashion Week Journal

There really isn’t much that happens within the wide and wonderful world of fashion that Jeffrey Kalinsky doesn’t know about. As Nordstrom’s VP of Fashion as well as the force (and the name) behind his own two highly notable shops in New York and Atlanta, he seems to know whenever one of the world’s top designers adds a belt or subtracts a floral pattern.

BRANDON MAXWELL -10Models backstage at the fall 2016 Brandon Maxwell show; last year at this time, Jeffrey
selected the NYC designer as the one to watch. 

And as a member of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund advisory board, he keeps close tabs on emerging designers as well. So when you want to know what’s up, you go to Jeffrey—that’s what we do, after all. With New York Fashion Week coming in hot—it kicks off September 8—what we wanted to know is who’s going to emerge this season as fashion’s next big thing.

Fashion Week Journal for Thursday February 12

laura_cassidy_the_thread_nordstrom_fashion_week

Color of the day: White—but, thankfully, just the threat of it. New York Fashion Week Day 1 began with predictions of snowfall, and the huddled conversations outside every show were of the “Here we go again order,” but the resigned tone referred to the weather, not the week’s schedule.

But yesterday ended with dry sidewalks, though, so, the score thus far:

THE ELEMENTS: 0, NYFW: 1

I’ve never been much of a fan of ruffles, but Jessica has converted me. Her cascading one-shouldered blouse is heavenly and her loose, wavy hair is an excellent complement. Jessica’s pairing of an extremely feminine top with tailored menswear trousers is an unexpectedly lovely case of “opposites attract.” The all-black palette keeps this look clean and evokes modern elegance.

No question about it: Margaret Zhang is one of my favorite Fashion Week girls! This blogger (Shine by Three) dresses with a confidence and deftness that belies her years. Still a student, she also manages a successful blog in Australia.

I adore suiting on women, and Margaret’s black and white look is pitch-perfect. I love the contrast, the sleek cut and the relaxed draping of her blouse and blazer. A cool leather backpack is an unexpected but totally clever touch.

Well, hello, fringed shorts! I am so into this quirky look. There are so many interesting little details, but the all-black palette keeps things from getting too out of hand. I’ve spotted that metallic eye clutch all over New York and I’m starting to get a little obsessed. Retro patches are an emerging theme and Giselly’s cropped sweatshirt has some super-cute tattoo-inspired hearts on her sleeve. Those heavy-duty chain boots are yet another statement piece. Way to pull it all together!

I was weaving my way through the mayhem after the Rodarte show and stumbled upon our very own Olivia Kim! Olivia is an inspiration, both in life and in fashion. I love her keen and creative eye and her willingness to experiment with fashion. Today’s look is a unique mix of casual menswear and formal femininity. I would never have imagined a pairing such as this, but I can’t stop thinking about it now. Thanks for the challenge, Olivia!

Mixing classic silhouettes with modern textures is a great way to update a look. The full skirt is one of the season’s hottest trends, and Sana’s leather version is perfect for fall. Her graphic-print crop top is a contemporary pairing, while her pink clutch and d’Orsay stilettos harken back to the ’50s. This modern city lady looks absolutely lovely!

Street Report: Nina Outside Rodarte

This fashion legend needs no introduction. Nina Garcia, Marie Claire’s creative director, is a legend in her own right. Her understated style is a perfect match for the season’s trends.

I love her expertly tailored, menswear-inspired blazer and modern choker necklace. Floor-skimming denim is just beginning to emerge and, of course, Nina shows us how it’s done!

Jessica Minkoff, Marie Claire’s senior market editor, has ridiculously awesome style. Every time I run into her, I am guaranteed future outfit inspiration. Today’s look has some serious city edge. Denim is still a major theme at Fashion Week, and I love Jessica’s distressed set. Her moto jacket and moto-inspired handbag are the perfect complements to rough-and-tumble denim. I can’t wait to see what she wears tomorrow!
