[Reporter : ] Hello Conn-young
So what do you have for us today[Reporter : ] It's that time of the year again to check out the upcoming fashion trends from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. The event, one of the world's most famous in fashion, is slated to open Thursday with a focus on light-hearted gypsy looks and styles inspired by "The Great Gatsby." Let's take a look.
Say goodbye to your bright, color-blocked clothes and your structured outfits. It's time to go back in time to the Roaring Twenties and try on a prohibition-era attitude. But if that doesn't suit your fancy, there's a more care-free gypsy look, with a touch of pink and lilac make-up.
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week will get a touch of sass and an air of lighthearted charm when it kicks off Thursday with fashions for the upcoming spring and summer season.
The upbeat message of the event encourages women to forget about the economic difficulties plaguing the world by pampering themselves and making themselves look pretty.
Joe Zee, creative director of Elle magazine, sees a more romantic and carefree mood for Spring and Summer 2013.
[Interview : Joe Zee, Creative Director
Elle Magazine] "When you talk about Spring /Summer, it's always that is a little bit more sexy, a little bit more feminine, a little bit more carefree. And I think we have seen so many seasons of structured looks. We've seen a lot of color. We've seen a lot of color blocking. And I think we are going to see a lot more clashing of patterns, clashing of colors, and I think when you put all those ideas together, it sort of embodies itself into something that's sort of, form of gypsy in a way"
The pageboy hairstyles, flapper dresses, elegant furs and saucy attitude of the Roaring Twenties that dominated the runways ahead of the fall season, will also make a statement in next year's spring and summer fashions as well.
And the minimal look, which was popular in the 90s, will make a comeback with an extra hint of fur and a bit of sparkle.
More than 100 designers will show their collections at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, which opens Thursday and closes a week later at Lincoln Center in New York City and other venues around the island.
