It's almost Fashion Week again! In an exclusive preview, 65 designers have given us one snapshot (plus one word, because we're extra nosy) that evokes their fall 2011 collections. The evidence suggests that fall will bring lots of texture (think thick woven fabrics from the likes of Tory Burch and Max Azria) mixed in with nineties influences (Vena Cava and Tommy Hilfiger) and bolts of red and pink color palettes (Vivienne Tam, Alice + Olivia, and Erin Fetherston).
