Fashion Week took the runway from New York City, through London, to Milan and made its grand finale in Paris.

The upcoming fall and winter fashion cycle will see moody, dramatic tones and sleek, overdramatized silhouettes if the Fall/Winter 2024/2025 Fashion Week shows are anything to go by. Kicking off in New York City, heading to London, to Milan and finally closing in Paris, the biggest fashion houses in the world brought new, sleek styles to the runway.

A favorite in New York City was Carolina Herrera’s show. Featuring stunning, bold pinks and reds, the classic blacks and whites, the figures were dramatic and structured. Full skirts were a focal point of this collection, with dramatic dresses storming the runway. Extravagant sleeves were another feature of Carolina Herrera’s show, with accentuated shoulders and ruffles galore, the show proved just how dramatic a simple color palette could be.

Burberry hit the scene in London the following week, bringing muted greens and browns. Featuring sleek trench coats, maxi skirts and elegant winter figures, Burberry brought in pops of red and pink towards the end of the show, as well. Of course, Burberry’s signature plaid was present, a staple of the fashion house.

All the stops were pulled in Milan, the fashion capital of the world, where the biggest names in fashion hit the runway. Daring corsets from Versace reintroduced allusive figures with a punk rock feel, while illustrious leathers were the pride of Gucci’s collection. Bottega Veneta brought oversized jackets and brighter color palettes than other fashion houses. In comparison, Max Mara had cool neutrals with an emphasis on sleek figures.

Perhaps the most highly anticipated Fashion Week location, Paris closed the Haute Couture tour. Dior displayed the most extravagant runway. With a focal point of wooden statues, models paraded around in an abstract take on the classic Parisian style. The runway was full of neutral trench coats, daring linen blouses and plenty of classic black boots. Dior stood to prove that fashion is an art, a focus on simplicity and c’etait très chic.

Looking towards fashion trends of this year’s fall and winter seasons, fashion consumers can expect deep, moody colors and interesting silhouettes. The understated, quiet luxury trend we see in today’s fashion will remain on the rise, as simplicity was a focal point of Fashion Week runways across the board.
