Spring is...well, almost in the air, especially now that we've gotten back the warm LA weather. The cold chill that we've had for 2 weeks had me second guessing where I live! Thank goodness that 40 degree weather is now behind us and we can finally start looking forward to some Spring fashion. Based on these trends from the runway, it looks to me like techies aren't the only ones fascinated by the future. Designers are too. Regardless of the specific trends that ranged from pop colors, to white delicates, to caged effects, to floral prints, to stripes, to tailored suits, a heavy dose of futuristic elements dominated the stage. Almost every look has a kind of sleekness that only comes from modern & contemporary design, especially the frilled out looks that have models looking like beautiful humans from the year 3000. This clean & sleek effect can also be seen in the hair styles, which are either pulled back or worn as a straight do. So why this fascination towards the future? I think it's due to our curiosity of the unknown and it's that curiosity and excitement that will always have us renewing and innovating in fashion and in all areas of life.
