As a budding designer myself, my favorite show always ends up being the Indie showcase, and this year did not disappoint.
There were tons of bold prints and different silhouettes, which is critical for the plus size consumer, whose shape varies so much more than her straight size counterparts.
For fall, we did see a lot of new takes on old classics like pencil skirts with peplum from designers like Rue 114 and T-Tymelady Couture, high-low trench coats from Tru Diva and swing coats from Sean Anthony designs.
Bold, bright colors and prints dominated the collections of two of my favorites, Rue 114 and Youtheary Khmer.
Similarly, Youtheary Khmer, who was last year's big standout in my opinion, didn't disappoint. She's unafraid to be bold with sweeping gowns and blouses that reach the floor, giving drama to classic looks. Khmer's collection was full of leopard print dresses, and bright hues like reds and cobalt blue.
I was also a huge fan of Dean of Fashion, who offered so many cute looks and sexy patterns, it was hard for me to choose a favorite look from the collection. Indie fave Nakimuli also showed sexy swimsuits, dresses and leggings in her signature fun, pop color prints.
