THE new York Fashion Week commenced just recently and now it's time to look back at what we've learned from the US style capital.

With an eclectic mix of runway collections, there was little something for everyone.

THE DYE : the dye made a big splash last season for the spring/summer collections, and shows no signs of slowing down come next fall, even though it's usually associated with a warmer weather.

While designers like Area and Prabal Gurung opted for uber-bright iterations, like the dye you remember from grade school, other labels like John Elliott and No Sesso opted for more subdued  colorways.

THE COLOUR PURPLE : Jewel tone colors reigned supreme, but one in particular stood out amongst the pack: purple. From shades of lavender to deep eggplant hues, the color purple was a source of inspiration for a long list of designers.

Done in sweater, suit, and dress form, the hue makes for a fresh contender to spice up your mostly black full wardrobe.

FEATHERS : At a time when more and more luxury brands are going fur- free, it seems fashion is turning to feathers. Colorful, glamorous, and over the feathered top pieces took the Fall 2019 runways by storm.

There were colorful feather statement coats at Prabal Gurung and Cushnie, while Oscar de la renta, Michael Kors, and Marc Jacobs turned the piece into an evening essential.

For those who want to be an extra on daily basis, Dion Lee sent a more subtle take on the trend down the runway on a delicate white turtleneck.

PSYCHEDELIC COLORS : Tripped-out , notice-me color popped up aplenty this season, from Area's  iridescent pants to Prabal Gurung's happy color blocking.

[Rodarte's acid-green ball gown, though technically shown in Los Angeles, made the cut  too as a formerly  New York based brand the now shows off the traditional schedule].

For slightly more subdued  color that still packed an impact, one needed to look no further than sensational newcomer Tommy Koizumi's rainbow-hued tulle explosions.

THE HIGH PONYTAIL IS DEAD.....long live the low ponytail: Not only does Fashion Week  dictate what you're going to be wearing next season, it also shows you how you'll be wearing your hair.

So next time you reach for a bobbie to put your hair up, keep that ponytail low.

As you've seen at  Ralph Lauren, Badgley Mischka and Cushnie, the pony tail got a make over, with a slick, shiny finish to boot. the change from the high pony-tail  as popularised by Ariana Grande and Kim Kardashian, was led by  GHD  and Tresemme  hair stylist Justine Marjan.

So you can thank her for all the  headaches you'll no longer have to endure. [Daily Times Monitor]
