NEW YORK (AP) - Forget about delicate flowers and pastels _ there’s no room for shrinking violets in the spring designs previewed over eight days at New York Fashion Week.

Saturated color was all over the runway, with bold stripes at Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, edgy patterns everywhere and hardly a “pretty” floral in the bunch. Cutouts and corsets were frequent sights, along with leather _ perforated, laser-cut and colorful _ longer hemlines and skirt suits.

Clothes came in many layers of fabric and textures, with plenty of black and white along with bold color. When even Oscar de la Renta shows leather and latex, you know spring will have some bite.

New York Fashion Week ended Thursday and many of the editors, stylists and retailers gathered here headed straight to London Fashion Week, which begins Friday.
