10. Richard Seco

Last but not least, Richard Seco finds inspiration in Shanghi-like pieces. Titling his collection, “POWER”, Seco stresses sophistication within a busy city lifestyle. It also seems as if he finds inspiration in the “Cyclops” character of X-Men, with round red glasses on almost all his models.

9. Zac Posen

Behold—the next creative Halloween costume—a curtain. Zac Posen layers fabric on top of fabric for a curtain like look that looks suitable for dress-up purposes only. Preferably, Halloween.

6. Libertine

This intricate suit catches the eye in an extremely creepy sense. With the words “ love” and “non” printed boldly on the front and back, this suit is quite possibly the weirdest of Libertines Spring 2014 collection.

5. Libertine

Inspired by screen-printing on vintage material, co-founder of Libertine, Jason Hartige, creates a collection that’s anything but normal.  If these vivid prints didn’t catch your eye enough, check out the “business super casual” look that is dress shoes with cut-off khaki shorts.

4.Falguni and Shane Peacock

The white hair bob is back, this time with metal leg harnesses attached.  As if metal harnesses on the legs weren’t bold enough, one around the neck makes for an even more audacious statement.

3. Falguni and Shane Peacock

Falguni and Shane Peacock don’t exactly design street-wear for the average gal. Highlighting black lips, white haired bobs, and dark gothic-like prints makes this collection look more super-hero-ish than stylish.

2. David Tlale

This South- African designer finds inspiration in graphic prints, sheer tops, and anything that looks too funky to wear. He describes his collection as “ funky and edgy” but space-like and strange works as well.

  1. Bibu Mohapatra.

If you weren’t aware of what a cherry blossom tree looks like, here’s the perfect example. This Indian- American fashion and costume designer incorporates baby tulips onto his design for a more texturized look. Spring-like? Yes. Ideal for a casual stroll in the park? Probably not.


In anticipation of San Antonio’s very own Fashion Week, hosted November 1-6 in the Alamo City, we bring you the Top 10 weirdest trends spotted in the Big Apple during the extremely celebrated, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. From curtain-like dresses, to knee braces used as accessories, these “upcoming trends” are sure to have you questioning the definition of “fashion” and just how much more eccentric it can get.
