Everything You Need To Know For A/W17 Trends

I was kindly invited to attend the launch of the West Coast Cooler Belfast Fashion Week for Autumn/Winter. We were greeted with a glass of West Coast Cooler and given an insight into the upcoming trends. The launch gave us an exciting taste as to what's coming for the Fashion Week shows in October!  The CMPR models did an amazing job of showcasing pieces from local designers as well as some high street clothing. The launch was held in the fabulous Bullitt Hotel in Belfast - a perfect location! Cathy Martin organised the launch and did an amazing job!

I intended to do an A/W trends post after doing my Summer edition but the launch inspired me even more! Using the event as inspiration alongside magazines, I've created a list of trends for you!

So, what do you need to know for the new season? 

Head-to-Toe red is a trend that's been spotted on all the runways from Max Mara to Givenchy to Oscar de la Renta. It's such an eye-catching colour - I'm definitely on board with this one!

Space & Sparkles
I think these two go hand in hand so I've paired them together. Think constellations and moons; Metallics and glitter. Spotted on the runways of Chanel, Saint Laurent and Paco Rabane to name but a few.

We've seen so many trends roll around from previous decades and this season sees the 70s coming back! It'll be psychedelic prints, corduroy and shearling all round! 

Feathers & Fur
When it comes to textures, feathers and fur are this season's big players. Whether it's coloured fur or dresses embellished with feathers, this trend will definitely make a statement! Prada, Fendi and Miu Miu have all been sporting this trend.

This season is all about the working girl and with that comes tailored, androgynous looks. It can be as simple as a blazer or even a full suit. Designers such as Victoria Beckham and Alexander McQueen have been displaying this trend.

Field Trips & Farmers
Tartan and tweed? They're in! Equestrian style, warm tones and chunky knits have been given a new lease of life! The runways of Stella McCartney and Chloé have shown off this trend.

We've been seeing slogans all over tees and sweaters for a while now and this season it's bigger than ever! From empowering quotes to striking words it's an amazing to get across a powerful message; and one of the easiest trends to follow!
