The internet and social media are such brilliant sources to view runway shows, trends and collections as they happen and I can't imagine how it was done prior. I often find myself lost on Instagram looking through hashtags and finding new and amazing designs. Style.com is one of my favourite websites/apps to get my fashion fix, you can view collections and also watch runway shows from various seasons and designers. In saying this, nothing beats my Vogue Australia arriving in my mail box each month, I must admit, I rarely read the stories...I only look at the images and photos, I'm clearly a more visual person.
In the gallery below I have chosen a selection of colours and trends that I love from the European Spring-Summer and I predict it will be big in Spring. As a lot of Haute Couture and Couture designs are not realistic and practical to actually wear, they are there to draw ideas and colour collectives for my own designs.
There are some beautiful colours that are standing out for spring to me. These include burgundy which I'm confident will be carried through from Autumn. Indigo Blue, Teal, Mint, Light Coral with Salmon undertones, Smokey Taupe, Dusty Pink and Persimmon (a shade of orange) will all feature also.
Textured florals and feathers, structure and layered skirts are some of my favourite trends I have spotted so far.
