Fall 2017 - Trends Ruled by Diversity

Prevailing rule for Fall 2017 is Diversity!
Diversity is also spurred by a political climate: travel bans, intolerance; all these are enforcing diversity in Fashion, promoting tolerance & acceptance.
This in turn qualifies the mix of all trends: return to the 80's, ultra modern shiny/puffy rocket launching outfits, fuzzy to cuddle up, Japonica meets countryside, Romance from Berlin in the 40's, from Athleisure to the Color Block mechanical doll, Prints, from Romantic flowers to Retro graphics & calligraphy of ancient scriptures.
This sounds confusing but it just seems that each designer finds her/his niche. This brings a Cross-Generation appeal, diffusing age differences & where once a "missy look" was kept for the mature woman only, my granddaughter, at 17 wants to wear it and show up as a cool dresser.
Here are some of the most beautiful examples to ignite your imagination.
* Velvet - Retro looks with innovative prints to achieve Ombre' hues of Turquoise/blue Olive/bronze & Golden/grey.

Roni's controversial thoughts:
If you let the river flow for long enough, there is a good chance that it will drown in it's stream. Also the boxer shoulders are trying to make a come-back.
In a world where Casual Friday's finds it's way into weekdays and women express their identities in various fashion statements, this Archaic mummified look should be washed out a.s.a.p!
