During Fashion Week it’s easy to get side-tracked with celeb sightings, crazy street style and after parties! The shows and presentations are a big production and what they are really all about is forecasting next season’s trends! We saw a ton of chic looks and put together our list of the biggest trends for Fall Winter 2012. From feminine menswear and fabulous furs, to sophisticated cut outs and sensual pleats, we can’t wait for another fall to arrive!
I recently visited Pologeorgis, one of the finest fur showrooms in New York City and a best-kept secret for many celebutantes. They specialize in creating the fur collections of some of my favorite designers like Michael Kors, Zac Posen and Chris Benz among others. If you’re in the market for a designer fur this season, here are my spend or splurge picks:
Zandra Rhodes for Pologeorgis Black Mink Jacket, $4,000
I love the look of a waist-length mink jacket. This collarless style has 3/4 length sleeves and is flattering on everyone because of its shape. Looks great with day dresses, black tie or skinny jeans and boots. I am wearing it here with a fitted Jay Godfrey shift dress that I recently purchased.
Zandra Rhodes for Pologeorgis Dyed Black Sheared Opossum Jacket, $995
This jacket is a lot of look for less and is constructed just like the mink. It’s very soft and you can wear it with many different outfits. Has a similar feel to sheared mink.
Zac Posen for Pologeorgis Natural Chinchilla Bolero, $12,000
This Chinchilla jacket is an all-around winner with it’s gorgeous color and chic style. It’s super luxe yet works day to night. I have never felt anything softer!
Dyed Chinchilla Rabbit Jacket Designed by Pologeorgis Furs, $1,200
This fun fur is dyed for the same look of chinchilla but at a fraction of the price. I just got one as an anniversary gift…LOVE!

While we are still obsessing over the amazing Spring/Summer hairstyles we saw earlier this month at Lincoln Center for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, we’re also ready to step up our hair game for this season. Luckily, PageDaily was backstage at last February’s Fall 2011 Fashion Week, too, and caught up with the best hair experts in the business who gave us all the tips, tricks and product picks you need to get flawless hair this Fall!
Size may not always matter but when it comes to hair this Fall, bigger is better. Models at Bibhu Mohapatra, Cynthia Rowley, Marchesa, Vivienne Tam and L.A.M.B. sported dramatic updos like bird’s nest buns and retro pompadours.

Effortlessly chic textured ponytails were also a runway favorite in February. They were windswept and natural at Rodarte; low and grungy at Tibi; and polished ‘60s mod on the side at Kate Spade. This trend is perfect for Fall’s laid-back looks but can also add some attitude to a polished black dress.

If last February’s shows were any prediction, we’ll be seeing lots of tousled, relaxed braids this Fall like the ones dressed with turbans at Mara Hoffman or the multiple strands we saw at HERCHCOVITCH; ALEXANDRE. We love that this look works best with dirty hair!
Hair Care Products for Braids with a Twist Trend:
Buy Now, Bumble and Bumble Grooming Creme, $26
Buy Now, Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray, $13.98
We saw romantic undone curls and waves backstage at Chris Benz, Prabal Gurung, Rebecca Minkoff, Vena Cava, Christian Siriano and Rebecca Taylor. You can achieve this easy-to-do look at home with a little help from a styling product like and by either curling hair with a small barrel curling iron and then brushing out or loosely braiding it and the applying heat with a blow dryer or flat iron. If it looks morning-after chic, you’re on the right track.

If you’re not one to go crazy styling your hair, one way to update your look this Fall is with a statement-making part. Stylists’ backstage Nicole Miller and Proenza Schouler shows created severe center parts while those at Timo Weiland and Tadashi Shoji styled defined side parts. The only tool you need is a tail comb!
