Being a student at FIT I am very blessed to have access to sights such as Women's Wear Daily, WGSN, and Style Sight. These are amazing tools to have being in the fashion industry. I can't even say how many times I have used them for various projects that I have done at school. I'm happy to say I have used them once again. This time I did some research for key items for Fall 2013. In the fashion industry we think a year in advance. I saw some interesting things while looking through the trend websites. I really hope that some of these things don't become a major staple in our Fall wardrobe. I just don't think anybody would look good in sparkle leggings and cocoon coats. I did come across one item though that I think will be a key item for everyone in Fall 2013.
A cape for fall is the perfect mix to incorporate high fashion and dressing for the weather in any fashionista's wardrobe.

There are some capes out now in Fall 2012, but not as many as there will be a year from now.
To me, capes are something that have always been part of the haute couture customer. I believe that next fall when we are walking down the streets of New York City we will be seeing most women taking part in the cape trend.
Until next time
