It's one of those well know facts about New York, that come October, all the pastels and pretty colours are put away to hibernate in the depths of closets, where New Yorkers suddenly turn into an army of little-black-dress wearing soldiers.

But if this week's Fall runways were anything to go by, it might actually be possible for Manhattanites to erupt in candy hues and neon next year, creating a different winter uniform altogether.

The fashion flock were jolted out of their recession fatigue this week after fuchsia popped up at Oscar de la Renta and Michael Kors highlighted his black dresses with acid yellow and screaming raspberry. If you really want to stand out in the crowd then Marc Jacobs is your man - with an entire collection that exploded with blinding neon colors including hot-pink hooded jackets, lemon capes, and metallic cerulean minis.

Next winter is all about making the entrance (or should I say, entrances) of a lifetime - so follow the leaders and let colour be the rule, not the exception, in your wardrobe.
