Plus Size Fashion Weekend in São Paulo was all about that bass! Fashion enthusiasts gathered at the Frei Caneca Convention Center to watch models hit the runway wearing winter 2015 looks by top designers of Brazil.

With NYFW just wrapping up, the fashion world is aflutter with talk of runway trends for A/W 2014, but I just can't help anxiously await the arrival of spring! Today, I'm sharing a few of my favorite trends that were forecasted for spring 2014.
