Is Orange Really the New Black?

The hit Netflix television series Orange is the New Black might be making waves in living rooms across America, but it's also causing a stir on the New York runways.

According to Elle, orange was a big part of New York's fashion week and designers can't seem to get enough. So is orange really the new black?

Christian Siriano has been a fan of the colour for some time, having featured it heavily on his runway show back in Spring 2012. Still using the colour, his Spring 2014 show featured two beautiful designs that combined the colour with florals and sheer fabric - two other hot trends this season.

Costello Tagliapietra also heavily featured the hue, with models wearing a range of outfits that included a beautiful metallic button up shirt and suit.

DNKY took the colour a step further by dressing their models in an orange shade both for their clothing and their lip, making for a striking look. They also made use of colourful accessories with orange clutch and pumps.

Monique Lhuillier is well known for her exquisite bridal and formal wear, and the 2014 spring collection is seeing a lot of brightly coloured orange.

So maybe Netflix is onto something?
