Social Occasion Trends for 2014

The VISION social occasion market (April 1-3) will be here before we know it.

In preparation for the Market, we have compiled the top social occasion trends that we’re expecting to see on the runways.


The feminine form makes an appearance for Fall 2014 in waist defining shapes accentuated by fabric piecing, sculptured sharp cut-outs and gathers, highlighting the body’s natural curves.

Passionate red with a bright pink undertone infuses an energetic element on tailored items. Worn in monochromatic layers or as a statement item paired with black, this invigorating hue exudes fresh sophistication.

Asymmetry evolves for Fall 2014 in new ways. Skirts are given added dimension with origami folds, dresses are pieced in enveloping fabric and sweaters are given diagonal closures.
