From Fashion Week to Marshall Street
It's been five days since the Fashion Week finale in New York City and that means stores will be stocking up on the new trends. Marc Jacobs, Burberry and Tommy Hilfiger all dressed the runway with fur, nude colors, knee socks and blazers.
Fashion Week does not only effect the high-fashion world. The new styles trickle-down to the non-designer brands that sell in stores for middle and lower-class people.
The Rhodadendron boutique on Marshall Street has definitely kept up with the new ideas and trends on the catwalk.
"I'm seeing a lot of paralells from the clothes that we're getting in and then styles shown during fashion week," Senior Syracuse University student, Emily Friedman said, who works at Rhodadendron.
Although the new styles are hitting the racks of this small boutique in Syracuse, the shoppers have not increased because of it.
"I don't think it [Fashion Week] was a catalyst for anyone to say I think I'll go buy new clothes," said Friedman.
