Cut-out panels are among the hottest trends for 2009. The fall collection by Preen shown at New York Fashion Week is a convergence of body hugging mini-dresses, graphic patterns and open panels in varying shapes.
Preen’s collection covers both modern and retro styles. Solid black and white dresses are edgy and more futuristic in design where the pastel prints have a groovy sixties feel.
The ultra-short lengths, cutout panels and pale colors may seem almost summery; however, a few of the dresses have long sleeves so at least your arms are warm.
