Top 40 Fashion Trends in October

From Party-Inspired Runways to Carbon Fiber Commuter Backpacks

— October 28, 2017 — Fashion
These October 2017 fashion trends incorporate unconventional runway shows, artist-designed apparel, progressive brands that leave gender norms out of its styles, and much more.

Some of the most unique ideas included are the Disney princess-inspired wedding gowns that were created by Japan's Kuraudia Co. label. The princess collection is made up of 14 different styles, all of which boast colorways that speak to each classic character. For example, the Snow White-inspired dress is a bold crimson red, which draws from the bow that she wears and the accents on the blue and yellow dress that's featured in the Disney rendition.

Also featured is the collaborative collection between The Weeknd and H&M, which was presented as a part of its Fall 2018 line. 18 pieces comprise the collection, which includes boxy shirts, pants, jerseys, and bomber jackets.
