From London to Paris

Over the last few weeks the Fashion Capitals of the world have been busy showcasing their designer's collections, for us to ooh and aah over, to inspire and influence the seasons trends, and to have us coveting that 'in thing' that we simply must have.

London. New York. Paris. Milan.

Watching the super chic catwalk shows, you would never guess of the creative chaos that takes place back stage, designers in a fantastic frenzy, cutting and altering, sewing right up to the last minute, models racing through make-up and hair, backstage is a mass of movement, and then as the models prepare to exit... a calm serenity takes over, all you see is what they want you to see.... utter perfection. 

Each fashion capital has something to offer. Some designers nod towards the theatrical and dramatic avant garde, their work more like pieces of art, and not necessarily all that comfortable to wear. London produces innovative and forward thinking design. Paris? Glamour and grandeur. New York has sophisticated cool all wrapped up.The Italian runways always ooze splendour and style.

Here's my selection of the very best and instantly wearable looks from the Spring Summer 2017 shows. With all the trends you need to know now!

*All about the SHOULDERS* Show them off with these sleek, slim silhouttes favoured by Balmain, Mulger, Roland Mouret and Philip Lim.

*Lavish TEXTURE* was the name of the game, with designers using velvet, lace, embroidery, animal print and satin. Some designers chose to throw everything together like at DSquared 2. Nina Ricci let their vibrant hues of fuchsia and plum set the tone.

*BELT UP* There was an emphasis on the waist at many of the shows, with models wearing corsets, bows, straps, ties and cinched in belts to accentuate and define their shape at Alexander McQueen, Balmain and Proenza Schouler.
