The video for my new single "Dancing Tonight" premiered last week and I couldn't be more excited! In fact, I'm so excited that I wanted to tell you a little about the direction I was going for with the looks in the video and hopefully give you some fashion inspiration to use in your everyday life. When doing a music video, everything (especially wardrobe) is planned ahead of time.

The star that graced the Oscar De La Renta F/W 2011 collection was definitely fur, like we’ve seen on many a runway this time around, hinting to us that Oscar’s more luxurious side is back. With the obvious trend in tow, there were a few other runner-ups that also made a grand impact on this Dominican designer’s collection. Paired with all the fur apparel were plenty of extravagant embellishments like a strapless beaded floral gown, feathered skirts, splashes of sequins, and Indian and tribal-inspired prints.

As in his Spring collection, Narciso Rodriguez brought back the 3/4 length dress to his F/W 2011, only this year it had more personality with a mix of sheer material, printed silk, and some color. The collection was a hip variety of color blocking, graphic and abstract designs in fall colors like black, grey, navy blue, and red with splashes of cool purples and pinks. All the pieces spoke to the world of the arts, which is where Narciso says his inspiration came from.

Known for her prim and proper aesthetic, Carolina Herrera’s F/W 11 collection was as lovely as you'd expect. It carried the air of sophistication that Herrera has become synonymous with, using black and grey knee-length and Maxi hemlines, high collars that flipped over the shoulders, silk and textured fabrics in her usual classic shapes. Some looks that were out of the ordinary for Herrera were a few neon blue and pink-colored dresses and sequined tops, but what ran consistent throughout the show was fur.

The Custo Barcelona Fall/Winter 2011 collection featured the Spanish designer’s signature artistry, with pieces resembling collages made up of many different fabrics and interwoven materials. Given his usual eccentricity, this collection had cleaner lines and neutral colors with occasional pops of red and purple. The real showstoppers? His patterned and printed leggings, trousers, and tights, which are heavily trending.
Here are some ideas to rock your own, Custo-inspired bottoms:
