Velvet is hardly a new trend, but this season, designers gave the rich fabric a nice little update (mostly via color) on the New York runways. At Monse, Oscar de la Renta alums Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia sent down a beautifully draped, pink velvet dress, while M. Martin designers Jennifer Noyes and Alex Gilbert gave their velvet a metallic sheen via an olive green jumpsuit. But for those who prefer classic black, Adam Selman, Derek Lam and LaQuan Smith sent down appealing versions of the black velvet dress for fall 2016.
