LET'S BRING OUT OUR FIRST MODEL.

THAT IS SO COOL TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT.

I'M AMAZED.

>> WE'RE SHOWING THIS COLOR.

BEAUTIFUL.

YOU SEE IT FROM MANY DIFFERENT DESIGNERS, THIS RUST, CINNAMON, BEAUTIFUL LOOK.

SHE'S WEARING A STELLA McCARTNEY, BEAUTIFUL, LONG SKIRT.

IT LOOKS LIKE LEATHER, BUT OF COURSE WITH STELLA, SHE'S NEVER GONNA USE LEATHER BECAUSE SHE'S ANIMAL FRIENDLY.

>> IT'S FAUX LEATHER.

>> YES.

SO IT'S GOT THIS BEAUTIFUL METALLIC, WHICH IS VERY BIG TREND FOR FALL.

YOU'RE GONNA SEE BEAUTIFUL GOLD.

>> I INITIALLY WOULD THINK THIS WOULD BE A TOUGH COLOR TO WEAR.

CAN ANY COMPLEXION WEAR THIS COLOR? >> ANY COMPLEXION CAN WEAR IT.

SHE IS ALSO WEARING THIS SWEATER.

YOU'LL SEE A LOT OF BELL SLEEVES.

SEE HOW THAT ENLARGES AT THE WRIST? >> YOU KNOW WHAT VIES MESS ABOUT IT — SURPRISES ME ABOUT IT IS HOW MONO CHROMATIC IT IS.

IS THAT A TREND OR COINCIDENCE? >> IT'S A COINCIDENCE.

WE LIKE IT THIS WAY AND ALL ONE COLOR.

WE THINK IT'S KIND OF A NEW LOOK.

>> IS THE RUST KIND OF NEW NEUTRAL FOR FALL? >> IT IS.

AND THE OTHER THING THAT YOU'RE GONNA SEE IS SEE THE LONGER LENGTH OF SKIRT? >> YEA.

>> A LOT OF OUR WOMEN THAT HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR LONGER SKIRTS.

SO YOU'RE GONNA SEE A LOT OF THAT.

>> I KIND OF SEE YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT GOING INTO SPRING THAT, FLOWY LOOK.

I'M SEEING A TOUCH OF IT IN THE SKIRT FOR THE FALL.

>> A LOT OF MOVEMENT.

LOTS OF FLOWY.

>> LET'S GO TO MODEL NUMBER TWO.

OUR SECOND LOOK, WHICH IS BERRY SHADES.

MODEL NUMBER TWO, CAN YOU COME ON OUT? LET'S TAKE A LOOK.

>> SO ONE OF THE NEXT TRENDS IS BERRY, THE WINE, THE BURGUNDIES, PLUMS.

WE'VE DONE SOMETHING UNEXPECTED HERE.

WE'VE TAKEN A BALL SKIRT, WHICH YOU WOULD NORMALLY CONSIDER COCKTAIL AND WE'RE TAKING IT DAY TO EVENING AND WE'VE THROWN ON A FUN WINE-COLORED LEATHER BOMBER JACKET.

>> I LOVE HOW YOU'RE KIND OF MIXING THESE BARRY COLORS.

THE PURPLES AND THE REDS.

ANYTHING GOES NOW.

>> YES.

DON'T BE AFRAID TO MIX THE COLORS.

WE'VE THROWN AN ANKLE STRAP SHOE ON HERE THAT HAS MULTIPLE COLORS.

YOU CAN SEE IN IT.

YOU KNOW, THERE ARE LADIES WHEN THEY BUY SOMETHING, THEY WANT TO BE ABLE TO MAKE USE OF IT.

THEY'RE MAKING AN INVESTMENT.

SO THIS LOOK, SHE COULD PUT THAT JACKET ON WITH A PAIR OF JEANS AND BE GOOD TO GO.

>> IT IS A BERRY FASHIONABLE LOOK.

SORRY, I HAD TO THROW IN THE BAD JOKE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

>> THANK YOU.

>> LET'S BRING OUT OUR THIRD MODEL AND OUR THIRD LOOK.

>> GOING INTO FALL FLORAL.

>> NOW, CAN YOU REALLY DO FLORALS IN FALL? >> YES.

>> YES, YOU CAN.

>> THIS IS AN ALLISON OLIVIA BOTANICAL PRINT SUIT.

WE ARE USED TO THE PRINTS, SO WE'VE DONE FALL OVER PRINT.

OF COURSE YOU COULD TAKE THE JACKET AND PUT IT ON WITH SOME JEANS OR YOU COULD TAKE JUST THE PANTS AND PUT IT ON WITH A BEAUTIFUL BLOUSE OR SWEATER.

>> THAT'S PRETTY COOL.

IS THAT SILK? >> IT'S SILK, YES.

>> I AM LOVING THAT BAG.

>> THAT IS STELLA McCARTNEY BAG.

>> THAT'S WHY I LOVE IT.

>> YES.

AGAIN, WE'RE SHOWING IT WITH THE GOLD AND THE METALLIC 'CAUSE THAT'S A BIG TREND.

>> YOU'RE MIXING THE COLORS.

>> DON'T BE AFRAID TO MIX GOLD AND SILVER.

>> WOW.

>> WE'VE PUT ON A LITTLE MIDRIFF TOP FOR A YOUNGER LOOK.

OF COURSE, WE WOULD ALSO BE ABLE TO PUT A SWEATER OR BLOUSE UNDERNEATH IT, TOO, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SHOW YOUR STOMACH.

>> ALL RIGHT.

VERY NICE.

>> FABULOUS.

>> THANK YOU.

>> WE'VE GOT ANOTHER LOOK.

WE HAVE A MALE AND FEMALE MODEL.

WE'RE GOING TO SHOW OUR VELVET LOOK.

>> YES.

SO VELVET IS A HUGE TREND.

WE'VE PUT BOTH OF THESE MODELS IN VELVET.

OUR FIRST IS THE TRACK SUIT BY ALEXANDER WANG IN A BEAUTIFUL ROYAL NAVY COLOR.

>> IT'S GORGEOUS.

I LOVE THE PLAY ON THE NAVIES.

>> WE GOT THE FLOWY SKIRT AGAIN.

>> THEY HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF PLATFORM IN THEM, TOO.

THE STREET SNEAKER IS HUGE.
