Retro Roll..........The Forties

As the month of September winds down, so does the hustle and bustle of the various fashion weeks held in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Throughout the past few weeks, it has been nearly impossible to miss the retro-inspired collections that so many designers have turned out; the fashions of the forties, fifties, and sixties are clearly back. But did they ever go out? Seeing the cuts and colors of these iconic eras walking modern runways just goes to show the timelessness of these exquisite fashions.

We're channeling the glamour and dazzle of the forites today by showcasing the works of Jason Wu, Behnaz Sarafpour, and Zac Posen. These three designers took high-waisted wide-leg pants, elegantly embellished sweaters, sweetheart necklines, collared blouses, and silks and satins to turn out creations that evoke images of Ingrid Bergman, old radios, and 1940 Chevys in onlooker's heads. Take a look at some of our favorite looks.

Kate Spade New York

Today we are featuring the likes of Ms. Kate Spade, whose iconic handbags have been a favorite for decades. Her clothing collection has quickly become a fan favorite as well, with wearable pieces suitable for the everyday girl or the glamazon alike.

It's the attack of the poodle skirts for her Spring 2013 collection, with rockabilly-inspired a-line skirts, mini cardigans, and cat-eye printed handbags galore. There is a hint of 60s resort wear tossed in the mix, too, with floppy brimmed hats, hortizontal stripes in a clutch of tropical colors, and clam-digger cuts to help offset the candy-coated fifties dreamland the rest of the collection exudes. Here are some of our favorite looks from Kate Spade New York's malt-shop paradise.

Fashion week is heating up and some of the most-anticipated designers of the season have already rolled out their stunning collections. Marc Jacobs, Derek Lam, Zac Posen, Rodarte, Max Azria, Alexander Wang, and so many more have graced the runways of New York City in the past weeks, showing off their latest works to eager, fashion-hungry eyes.

One collection that caught our eye this week came from Emma's favorite design label, Marchesa. Each season the design duo of Georgina Chapman and Karen Craig debut jaw-dropping pieces; hand painted gowns and intricate beading are some of their specialties. Thier erethral, exsquisite, and artistic take on gowns has proven them to be some of the most talented designers in the game, focusing on soft shapes and lots of draping. Their Spring 2013 collection is no different: inspired by the colors, fabrics, and traditional clothing of India, the pieces shown in this collection stun as each and every one of thier other collections has done thus far. Here are some of our favorite looks.
