Attempting to predicting fashion trends has always been a great benefit to me. A great personal example was with one of my favourite looks 'The Neck Tie'. I noticed this trend originally in Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 collections and incorporated it in my own way with a structured collar and dual straight 'ties' for my racewear over spring 2015 and summer 2016. It was used in the design for Derby Day 2015, and also for my winning outfit from the Hobart Cup 2016 where I will represent Tasmania in the National Fashions on the Field final this November. As I originally wore this in February (so technically 'last season') it's exciting to see that the 'collar' , ' neck tie' and 'lace' trends will still play a significant role of spring staple trends.
There are also some gorgeous new and staying trends that that have come through from global Resort 2017 collections. Many that I can see filtering through to our spring / summer styles and racewear looks ass well as some trends that have been around for a season or two but gaining popularity this season. Resort 17 came with gorgeous collections from Erdem, Roksanda, Gucci, Ellie Saab, Sachin and Babi and Peter Pilotto. These collections are all having similar design aspects throughout.
My favourite new season trends are:
