One of the biggest fashion trends that originated from New York is not a wearable trend per se, but it is the trendiest of all fashion trends as it never goes out of style, and that is seasonal fashion shows.

Technically, fashion shows originated in Paris, but it was New York that brought us fashion shows for every spring/summer and fall/winter collection of every major designer that had to be showcased properly on the runway. With this is mind, let’s see what other trends we’ve seen come out of NYC.

  1. Street Style
  2. Hip Hop Fashion
  3. Celebrity Influence on Fashion
  4. Recent NYC Trends

One of the trends that is still extremely popular is 'street style' that originated straight from the streets of New York City thanks to Bill Cunningham, a photographer that many people cite as the first street-style photographer. He shot candid photographs of people in the 1970s and discovered various trends among them that all had one thing in common and that was the 'dressing-for-myself' attitude.

The emerging hip hop scene of the 1970s saw itself attached to sportswear brands like Adidas that made the black and Latino kids all over the five boroughs go crazy for oversized pants, bomber jackets and brightly colored tracksuits. These trends continued well into the 1980s, and gained world-wide popularity when rap music reached its peak in the mid-1990s.

New York City may not be the only fashion capital of the world, but it is certainly the place where celebrities, socialites and various upper-class individuals bring fashion to the masses.  Lady Gaga and JLo, both born and raised in New York, are one of the biggest celebrity fashion icons of our time, and we could probably write a book on what New-York-based show Sex and the City has done for fashion trends.

Nowadays, most famous people are probably more focused on celebrity snapchats than fashion trends, but we hope they'll soon realize how quickly snap chats evaporate and how long NYC fashion trends live.

In 2013, Proenza Schoulershowcased fringe during New York Fashion Week, which inspired plenty of other designers to quickly follow suit. In 2014, Diane von Furstenbergsent a bunch of crop tops down the runway duringNew York Fashion Week's Spring 2014 collections, and pretty soon crop tops were literally everywhere. We can’t wait to see what NYC has got for us next!

    When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
