on Tuesday,February 15,2011 21:02


Although many designers at New York Fashion Week had spring and summer in mind, a number of industry experts were still focused on helping people get through the winter. This season has been full of blizzards and freezing temperatures. In an effort to boost the spirits of chilly Americans, New York Fashion Week designers have debuted a number of comfortable, warm options, according to the Boston Globe.

Thakoon Panichgul is one of many designers who put a luxurious spin on the common winter coat. At Fashion Week, Panichgul, who is known as Thakoon in the industry, launched one of his latest creations, which was a puffy down jacket. The piece was displayed in plaid, which has become a reoccurring pattern on the runway.

Derek Lam was another designer who experimented with wool fabrics for new winter ensembles. Some of his latest creations on the runway were pea coats and capes, comprised of a soft wool designed for comfort.

New York Fashion Week inspires many individuals to pursue careers in the industry every year. A bachelor's degree is typically required for a person to find a job in the fashion design field, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
