Asian Designers Spotlight: Best of NY Fashion Week F/W 2011

NY Fashion Week is officially over and just like all Fall/Winter collections, it was not short of any black or fur. Last season I did individual designer spotlights but I've been a bit busy this month, so I decided to do one big post highlighting my favorite looks from the hottest Asian designers in the industry that showed in NY last week.

Zang Toi

Toi Trends: Camel tones and black; fur; menswear as womenswear; bold necklines
and floor length coats.

Yeoh Lee

Lee Trends: Large cozy knits; blacks, whites, greys; structured jackets and capes and capri trousers.

Vivienne Tam

Tam Trends: Tweed outerwear and dresses; fringe and crochet dresses.

Vera Wang
Wang Trends: Black; coats adorned with long haired furs and sheer chiffon gowns.

Thakoon Trends: Print mixing, plaid, long vests and more than just black.

Tadashi Shoji
Shoji Trends: Fluffy chic chiffon dresses, assymetricals and feathers.

Son Jung Wan
Wan Trends: Tweeds, furs, metallics and v-necklines.

Richard Chai
Chai Trends: Sporty-chic in grays and blacks, layered maxi dresses and cozy coats.

Prabal Gurung
Gurung Trends: Reds, greys and blacks, Textured knits, sophisticated fitted coats and trousers, and lace details.

Jason Wu
Wu Trends: Reds, grays and blacks, Menswear as womenswear, lace details and feathers.

Derek Lam
Lam trends: Reds, grays and blue solid pieces, sleeveless oversized coats and menswear style jackets.

Anna Sui
Sui Trends: Bold prints, chunky fur pieces, and Anna's signature hippie style florals.

Alexander Wang

Wang Trends: Menswear as womenswear, fur pieces, metallics and chunky tunics.

Phillip Lim
Lim Trends: Black, gray and green solids, leather and funky prints.

Looks like a lot of girls will be stealing clothes from their boyfriend's closets ;P I absolutely loved Thakoon's collection, completely caught me by surprise as he brought over spring inspired pieces into fall. I loved all the colors and textures he used and the design was very fresh and perfect for a city girl. Thakoon's got my vote for best F/W 2011 collection at NY Fashion Week!
