New York Fashion Week is home to some of the biggest designers including Marc Jacobs and Rodarte, so despite only being one week in to the Autumn '09 fashion showcases some new trends have already begun to emerge.
Taking lead from the amazing success of Hervé Léger's bandage dress, some designers have created items in the same nature for next season. Both Alexander Wang's bandage leggings and Narciso Rodriguez's body con dress suggestively revealed hints of flesh for a seductive look. Rodarte, on the other hand, made a disheveled style look chic, especially with the thigh high bandage boots.
This penchant for bandage picks up where last season left off with held together looks at Preen and Meadham Kirchhoff now effectively being healed! Hopefully, following so many cuts and closures, this is a metaphor for the fashion industry and the economy as a whole.
