London is the creative hub for existing talent as well as up-and-coming designers on the catwalk. The best of British design showed off their AW15 collections in the beautiful confines of Somerset House. We talk trends and the pieces to look out for come Autumn Winter.
What trends will you be sporting next season?
Provocative, fun and flirty, the thigh high slit gives a sexy glimpse of leg. Dresses and skirts showed off slits and splits – I guess the only question, how high will you dare?
Sheer and sexy, black lace gives designers a chance to show off their dark side. Gothic romanticism has been spotted across many of the catwalks for AW15.
Tartans, gingham and checks are a regular in the winter season – and this season is no different. Channel Vivienne Westwood and go big on checks.
Inject some colour into your winter wardrobe with a pop of faux fur. Oversize, longer length and stripes get the thumbs up from the fashion pack.
Fashion has a fringe moment. Tasseled hemlines, trims and boots danced down the catwalk – it’s playful and flirty. Time to get your swing on.
More is most definitely more when it comes to print this AW15. Throw together patchwork fabrics, checks and clashing prints for effortless glamour.
Clash your textures – in fact, the more texture the better! Fashion gets fluffy, fuzzy and feathery on the catwalk.
The 70’s have been making a reappearance and are now looking stronger than ever. Bring out your inner hippy and look out for boho chic, loose silhouettes, suede, roll necks, 70’s prints and square sunglasses.
This trend takes its inspiration from the Victorian era. With high neck ruffles and leg of mutton sleeves, the look is both prim and modern.
A multitude of layers make this trend winter appropriate. Use clever layering of pieces, texture and colour to give a look your own unique stamp.
The parka is still a major player for AW15. Fitting with the loose, deconstructed styles walking the catwalks, a parka will give street appeal to any look.
The catwalks were awash with tangerine. Give a vibrant injection of colour to your wardrobe come winter.
Hemlines, trims and necklines went off-centre in a bold new look for winter. From evening-wear to casual-wear, give this trend a go come Autumn.
Next season we’ll be coveting the bomber jacket, the cover up of choice – well so say those in the know. Choose from high-shine, fur-trimmed and quilted.
The smart girls cover up of choice. Ultra wearable, capes, cloaks and ponchos were a unanimous favourite on the catwalk; from a fringed poncho at Burberry to the floral cape at Erdem this is one trend you should buy into.
Tops are layered long over loose trousers and maxi skirts. Lengthen your body-line and experiment with your proportions.
Fashions go off-shoulder so bare some sexy skin and work the drop shoulder trend.
The biggest story for next season? The roll neck. The funnel neck. The polo neck. The turtle neck. This old classic has just become the new must-have monopolising the catwalks.
An off-beat addition to the catwalks for AW15!
