THIS SEASON'S FASHION TRENDS MAY BE WILDLY DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER, BUT THEY'RE ALL SUPERCHARGED WITH ONE MAJOR ELEMENT… CREATIVE INDIVIDUALITY. THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT RIGHT NOW THAT'S HELPING BOUNDARIES TO BE PUSHED AND NEW SARTORIAL GROUND TO BE STOMPED UPON SAYS CLEO LACEY
AW16 Catwalk REPORT
he industry is in a major state of reworking, the concept of ‘see now and have to have now’ is increasingly demanding (well who wants to wait?). Many designers and brands are rethinking not only how they present their collections, but when and to whom. The old-school fashion calendar or idea of the runway show is being pinched and tweaked into new forms and this overdue disruption has sparked an inventive energy. Some of the most talked about labels of AW16 didn't even have fashion shows. Some hyped-up names create limited-edition runs only and are challenging the norm with super-high price points or controversial trends. But all fashion editors are in agreement that now is the time to be you, take AW 16's trends and make them your own.

Mix and match if you want to. Wear head to toe if you want to. Don't be afraid to step out of the norm, individualism is the new key trend. What's great about the new season is that it's about reviving pieces you already have in your wardrobe and tweaking them; from the trench coat, tweed jacket, velvet dress to the statement earrings you might have already invested in. This is obviously pleasing to our credit cards, but not to our need for buying new season clothes! I’ve divided up my findings into my top 7 key trends that I think we'll all be wearing. Crazy creativity and confusion is exactly what fashion is right now, it’s time to brave individuality to the MAX!
