Hats! Fur! Black patent leather! Ah, Fashion Week is only halfway through, but Fall '07 trends are already becoming apparent. Baby Phat kicked off the "From Russia With Love" theme, which seems to be resonating throughout many other designers styles.

However, what I love the most about Fashion Week is the real creativity that goes into each show. Sometimes, this creativity goes a little overboard and verges more into the realm of the bizarre. In the grand scheme of the show, usually the looks aren't that strange, but on their own, they mystify and boggle the mind.

Most people won't actually wear these looks...they are just for fun, but I always love seeing what designers come up with. Designers like Viktor and Rolf and John Galliano almost always deliver on the shock factor, but many newbies are also filling that gap. There are still a few more days for strange looks to grace the runway...we'll keep you posted!
