Alexander Wang Fall 2009, Behnaz Sarafpour Fall 2009, Mark Fast Fall 2009
Marc Jacobs Fall 2009, Mario Schwab Fall 2009, Phillip Lim 3.1 Fall 2009
One trend I noticed so far on the runways of Fall 2009 is the exposed shoulder. From New York to London the exposed shoulder is hot on the runways. This is different from the regular one shoulder effect of the past because it is more covered. The opposite side shoulder is either covered up, or the arms are covered. The strategically placed cut out can be either rounded or angular. Although the angular shapes at Mario Schwab and Phillip Lim 3.1 are still kind of sassy, I think I prefer the rounded shapes at Alexander Wang and Behnaz Sarafpour best as they look organic and futuristic.
