There’s no question about it, fashion is all about originality and making statements, and New York Fashion Week has shown us many designer styles to die for, but some, maybe not so soon.
Designer Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2012 collection was all the way on the wild side. The collection ranged from floor-length, flowing dresses in a variety of animal prints, and snakeskin detail, snakeskin leather coats and bodysuits, playsuits, two-piece pants suits, and ponchos. So many of these styles I would love to try on.
When we talk about the fashionably weird, all I can say to describe it is, what some people call style, others may call “style stigma.” Of course, Nicki Minaj would probably say she doesn’t give a damn.

For New York Fashion Week, a number of designers were all about mixing prints for their Spring 2012 collections. However, other than mixing prints, and combining Irish cultural looks and 70’s style designs with poodle dresses and other questionable pieces, designer Thom Browne’s Spring 2012 collection was one that could hardly be explained.
