Autumn Winter 2015 at a Glance

AW15 trends for the lady who loves her pearls

The 80s are back, and for those of us who can remember it first time round…. stop clasping your face is horror.... the perm and scrunches are missing. It’s been revamped so it’s not so scary

Power shoulder at Balmain, Saint Laurent saw lots of Madonna esq/ Bananarama tulle knee length skirts with a mix of bicker chicks, we saw lady Di Sloanes in the form of Mui Mui’s frilled sailor bib dresses, and at Loewe colour block knits and rainbow colour combos which defined the decade of Dynasty, and Wham!

Heels are back
The pointy, uncomfortable but totally sexy is back.
Sexy bicker black boots at Saint Laurent, Pink traniers with court shoes in them at Dior, chunky heeled Nicholas Kirkwood’s at Peter Pilotto, spiked strappy’s at Miu Miu or ladylike pointed courts at Prabal Gurung.

Dresses for the Gala, theatre, and Christmas balls
Ellie Saab never disappoints, he sent flowing gowns as well as cute jumpsuits and cocktail dresses down the runway this season, Valentino, obviously not the zoolander epic moment, but the layered sequin, lace and tulle affair, Jenny Packham, Zuhair Murad, red carpet gowns and  Oscar de la Renta new designer Peter Copping seems to be copping..…..I (sighs)….am so sorry, about that god awful pun… with the legacy of the brand

Outfits for dinner parties
Oscar de la Renta gave us dinner party options too with this white applique dress, and my favourite Giambattista Valli, Monique Lhuillier with her slinky sexy lace dresses and Marc Jacob with his modernised Victorian silhouettes, extra-long skinny diamantĂ© belts, embroidered jackets and print skirts

Modern tweed for Ladies that Lunch
I am unfortunately a lady that works although I shouldn’t complain I love designing and getting inspiration from these shows

Ladylike elegance with Victorian dark romance, were seen for the across the board with the daywear outfits some gave the shows a historic atmosphere, whilst others brightened and modernised the look 

Clockwise from top left: Alexander McQueen, Moncler Gamme Rouge, Chanel, Dior, Balenciaga and Roksanda

What are your thoughts on the outfits this season? What was your favourite show or incident.. they were plenty to choose from
