Meet Telsha Anderson. Hers is a name you'll want to remember, as she's taking the New York fashion world by storm with the arrival of her new luxury concept store, T.A., in NYC's Meatpacking District. The store, which was notably inspired by Anderson's mother's and grandmother’s one-of-a-kind closets, was set to open in March, but when COVID-19 put things on the back burner, she pivoted to ecommerce. Just in time for fall shopping, T.A. was finally able to open in early July, and it's packed with cool, under-the-radar brands like Priscavera, William Okpo, PH5, Completedworks, Pushbutton, and Lady Grey.
With summer coming to a close sooner rather than later, I was eager to get Anderson's fresh perspective about fall 2020 trends. Given the year we've had, fashion has undoubtedly been shaken up, and the trends we saw on the runways in February and March might not be exactly what everyone will be wearing come October, so Anderson's predictions are particularly invaluable.
Scroll to find out which seven trends Telsha Anderson says will be everywhere this fall.
"The 'comfort over everything' streak should definitely carry into the fall. Many gravitated toward the effortless look during the several months of quarantine, so as long as those guidelines are still in effect, I’ll continue incorporating cozy-chic staples come next season." — Telsha Anderson
"I am actually looking forward to seeing people step their face mask game up! I love seeing brands discovering new, sustainable ways to produce masks, so I'm excited to see how some will pair them with their fall wardrobe."
"I see a nice pair of luxe socks as a different level of comfort, which reminds me of home. Nothing else compares to time spent with loved ones, especially during the colder seasons, so my favorite to wear are by Comee Si."
"I high-key have a feeling that the grunge vintage look is making a comeback! But I did just buy 4,905,849 vintage T-shirts, so that's probably me just projecting the trend for my own selfish purposes."
"Ottolinger and Beaufille F/W 20 collections both featured women's power suits that I am so excited to have in-store! I love me a good two-piece and look forward to seeing the trend make its way back to NYC."

"T.A. carries a few of PH5’s asymmetrical dresses, and they fly off the shelves! I’ll be revisiting the brand for F/W 20, so I'm eager to see the trend continue."
