(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). Yesterday’s “The Future of Fashion” show was a refreshing reminder of the innovations we can expect this generation of designers to bring to the fashion industry. The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) hosted 4:30pm and 7:30pm runway presentations of 101 fall 2010 garments designed by its top graduating design students in the intimate apparel; sportswear; special occasion; knitwear; menswear; and children’s wear categories. The shows took place at FIT’s Great Hall in New York City. For the first time, the college live-streamed the 7:30pm show in 3D.

This year’s semester-long critics included FIT alumni Calvin Klein, and Carolina Herrera. They presented the critics award in intimate apparel to Margaret Bacon for her exquisite navy mesh, satin and lace bustier with boy short and lace long robe. Cotton Incorporated, the lead sponsor of the fashion show, awarded a student per category who used cotton in 95 percent of their garments a cash award of $2,000. In the intimate apparel category, Nicole Wilson won for her cotton cream tulle and voile long line bra with ecru lace and matching long robe.

In line with the current return to the fashions of yesteryear, bustiers and corsets paired with long, iridescent robes ruled the runway. Also trend-right was lingerie in the nude color that flooded the stores this spring. The trend toward lingerie-inspired outerwear was also prevalent, particularly in BooYoun Choi’s Stoll ivory silk/cashmere convertible wedding dress, which appeared appeared appropriately after the last grouping of intimates. Other prevalent intimate apparel shades were black, navy and powder blue.
