Pre-Fall 2011 is here..

Vera Wang Pre-Fall 2011It may be January but pre-fall collections have already started to be shown! According to Women’s Wear Daily, a trend for the season will encompass a heavy emphasis on jeweling up pieces with sequins, shimmer, and stones (like this golden dress by Vera Wang on the left).

Jean Paul Gaultier focused on zippers to create a tough edge. The zipper on the shoulder of the long red dress can be zipped up to transform it into a shorter cocktail version.

Having not shown a pre-fall collection since 2009, it was exciting to see what John Galliano had to offer for the season. His collection is colorful like Bottega Veneta, but is inspired by “Parisian Seventies street glamour.”

Check out some of the collections from pre-fall below:
