Design house Tommy Hilfiger gears up for New York fashion week . . .

 

The New York season of the spring/summer 2013 runway shows have kicking off, followed closely by the London, Milan and Paris seasons too.

For the uninitiated, and quite simply, these shows unveil/showcase the fashion trends we can expect to sweep into the mainstream. In some cases, we'll see the trends on some racks in a matter of weeks, due to the pace of High street and fast fashion chains whose job it is to get the new vibes onto racks as quickly as possible.

Much to the chagrin, of course, of the original designers who have spent months developing their collections and many of which won't get onto racks for at least 4-6 months.

With New York in the fashion spotlight (great to see Aussies Kym Ellery and Christopher Esber flying the antipodean flag) the Women's Spring 2013 collection for always popular and wearable American Tommy Hilfiger house has been inspired by 'American optimism'. Here a couple of drawings the Hilfiger had created just to give us an idea of their take on summer.

The Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2013 Women’s Show take place today, September 9, New York time . . .
