New York Fashion Week: Top Trends for Spring 2010



Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week packed the Tents at Bryant Park with over 60 designers, who showcased their 2010 Spring Collections from September 10 to September 17, 2009. The iconic tents at Bryant Park were metaphorically packed too, as this season's trunk and travel theme highlights the future move of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week to Lincoln Center and its integral role in the world-wide fashion industry.

Mercedes-Benz, title sponsor of the preeminent New York fashion event that draws international attention and over 100,000 visitors, featured established designers including Yigal Azrouel, Chado Ralph Rucci, Badgley Mischka, Diane Von Furstenberg, 3.1 phillip lim, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger and this season's Mercedes-Benz Presents Designer, Narciso Rodriguez, who debuted his Spring 2010 Collection.

Here are the main trends:

Short, skirts, ties and socks are major on the catwalk...
