FOREVER FLORAL

"I'm perfectly aware this isn't just an A/W trend but for the past few years the industry appears to have taken a reverse roll on things, plus I love the break away from the 'florals for spring' stereotype! From luxury designers to high street retailers, florals have been a huge A/W focus that is clearly selling."

"If you're a denim diva or somebody who can't be seen without your favourite leather jacket, florals can be incorporated into almost anything which is a key factor as to just why I adore the trend so much. A contemporary floral trend has the ability to give a simple outfit a complete new lease of life!"

 

RED ALERT

"Red is a timeless trend within itself that emphasises definition and confidence that demands to be seen by everyone. I believe nobody can really escape this trend, whether it’s the bold red lipstick shade you put on or the little red dress you have at the back of your wardrobe that you only bring out on special occasions. I’ve witnessed many designers use this trend subtly in order to create powerful statements in their collections."

"From London to Paris, this trend continuously makes an appearance on all catwalks in every corner of the industry. Although this trend still maintains it’s usual classic appearance, it somehow manages to reinvent itself time after time which can be used as a resourceful tool to anyone."

 

FUTURISTIC FASHION

"As many of you know the world of fashion works so far ahead of itself in order to deliver the next best thing. For a while now I’ve felt the industry has had an underlying thirst for something completely new and different. That thirst has finally been quenched by the revolution of futuristic fashion."

"I can’t exactly pinpoint when this trend came to light but it’s clear from the diamanté boots at Saint Laurent and metallic jackets at Chanel that it’s very much happening and here to stay. Understandably this might be out of most of our comfort zones, but after some time to adapt this will become a very much modern thing we can all look forward to seeing."
