As autumn arrives, the fashion world in the US is already buzzing with anticipation for the spring/summer 2024 season, showcased during New York Fashion Week. This glamorous event is a pivotal moment in the industry, as with every passing month, the ever-evolving world of fashion sets its sights on the trends that lie ahead. Even if you find yourself still consumed by the current autumn/winter fashion trends for 2023, fear not, for fashion is always projected into the future.

September serves as a gateway to a month filled with fashion shows happening across the globe, where designers, fashion editors, stylists, and influencers eagerly await the unveiling of new styles and inspirations.

While the official unveiling of the spring/summer 2024 collections commenced at Copenhagen Fashion Week in August, New York City holds a prominent position as one of the four major fashion capitals and kicks off the fashion calendar.

It is in the Big Apple that top American clothing brands and renowned fashion names come together to offer a tantalizing sneak peek into what lies ahead for the upcoming spring season. During New York Fashion Week, attendees are treated to a series of mesmerizing runway shows and captivating presentations.

This illustrious event serves as a platform for designers to showcase their visionary collections and presents an opportunity for fashion enthusiasts to immerse themselves in the newest trends in clothing and accessories. Brace yourself for an exhilarating exploration of the latest fashion innovation and artistry that lies just on the horizon.


Coach’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection commemorates Creative Director Stuart Vevers’ 10-year milestone and embraces a slightly different and more provocative approach. The brand makes a bold statement with leather, lace, and sheer knits taking centre stage, showcasing a prevailing trend of sheer dresses on the runways, red carpets, and streets. This trend is set to continue into the upcoming spring season, as models confidently strutted down the runway in sheer dresses layered over neutral undergarments.

The collection cleverly blurs the line between nightwear and outerwear, presenting lace dresses that could easily transition from lingerie to a stylish outfit for a night out. In terms of styling, the “less is more” mantra takes precedence, with many looks embracing the no-pants trend. With meticulous attention to detail, the collection features double-layered bags, heart-shaped sunglasses, and whimsical pendants featuring dinosaurs and arachnids, injecting an extra dose of coolness and playfulness.

Ralph Lauren’s return to the official New York Fashion Week calendar with his Spring/Summer 2024 show was highly anticipated. On September 8, Lauren’s comeback took place in a modest warehouse located at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Inside the venue underwent a breathtaking transformation into a rustic artist’s loft, adorned with glistening chandeliers, draping canvas, and wooden textures. It provided a wealthy and charming setting for Lauren’s idyllic silhouettes, which beautifully contrasted with the pastoral backdrop.

According to Lauren, his Spring 2024 women’s collection embodies a new kind of romance – cool and sophisticated. The line sought to celebrate personal style through timeless classics rather than conforming to fleeting trends. The collection showcased artistic faded denim followed by painterly floral prints, with glamorous black and gold dresses exuding a luxurious shine that remained true to Lauren’s iconic Americana aesthetic.

Prabal Gurung unveiled his Spring/Summer 2024 collection at Roosevelt Island during New York Fashion Week. The collection was deeply inspired by his recent trip to India, where he had the opportunity to spend time with his family, including his grandmother.

Gurung’s designs seamlessly combined elements from his native Nepal and India, resulting in a collection that exuded femininity with a global flair. The pieces showcased a vibrant and diverse palette of colours, incorporating fluid fabrics alongside contemporary Western elements such as blazers and tailored trousers.

The runway show presented a range of styles, including dhoti pants, breezy dresses, and jackets adorned with fringes. Each garment exuded a chic and effortlessly wearable vibe, showcasing Gurung’s unique vision and cultural influences.

Dion Lee’s signature ethos mashes up utilitarian codes with a subversive, sexy mindset.  For his spring collection, the designer said he further explored this narrative by “playing around with tool shed corsetry.” “I’m quite rough when I like to pin things, cut things up and collage them together. It was a cut-and-paste of a lot of ideas that I’ve kind of been working into over my whole career,” he said of his naive, fashionable approach to industrial language.

Designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have revealed the Proenza Schouler Spring Summer 2024 collection. This season, their collection made a striking debut at Phillips’s Park Avenue headquarters, a non-traditional runway location that added an intriguing element to the show.

McCollough explained, “After finishing the fall show, we immediately knew we wanted to carry on its spirit.” He further expressed the desire to build upon the foundation of the previous season’s board of women and explore similar ideas within a spring context. This commitment to continuity was evident in the way the Fall and Spring collections engaged in a dialogue with each other.

The Proenza Schouler collection showcased a harmonious blend of the ordinary and extraordinary. Simple yet statement-making, bleached straight-leg jeans and a black leather coat with trailing straps, reminiscent of equestrian wear, demonstrated the brand’s dedication to simplicity with a touch of uniqueness. The Spring Summer 2024 collection marks a departure from the trend-driven fashion industry, embracing a more understated and refined approach while staying true to the brand’s distinctive style.
