New York Fashion Week kicked off a few days ago, and Tom Ford, Jeremy Scott and other designers all repped for L.A.

"There was a big 80s theme coming out," says Adam Tschorn, deputy fashion editor for the L.A. Times. "Lots of prints, lots of flared legs."

Ford showcased a line with zebra stripe, leopard spot and snake skin patterns, all in highlighter-acid colors. "It was something like fruit-sprayed gum,"  says Tschorn.

Feminism has also been a strong motif throughout many of the shows so far with the #MeToo movement showing up on the runways. 

However, those looks were more subtle in nature where, in the past, the theme manifested as slogans on clothing.
