VAMPIRE GLAM

Goth glam looks ruled with black as a major colour statement accessorized with a vampy dark red lip.


 

















 


'70S GUY BOURDAIN

 

Sexy, sophisticated and chic. Menswear suits, slim silhouettes and slicked back hair reference this iconic '70s photographer.

 

























LEATHER

Whether it's a cape, jumpsuit, pleated skirt or head to toe look, leather was the fabric of choice in a multitude of shades from rustic Bordeaux to vibrant red or classic black.

 




OVER THE TOP EMBELLISHMENT

Surface embellishment via crystals, beads, embroidery, feathers or studs, whatever your style, it's time to be bedazzled.

 



















SUITS

Menswear shapes and serious attitude were seen at almost every collection.

 





















RED BAGS

Twice is a coincidence, three times a trend. Spotted in leather, suede and satin, red bags were a showroom fave.

 





















MOLDED SHAPES

Many designers used the method of fusing fabrics together to create stiffer molded shapes. Resulting in exaggerate shoulders, rounded hip and extreme silhouettes.



















RED AS A SIGNATURE

Even if it was one dress in a sea of black, red added a hit of colour to many collections.


























SWEATER DRESSING

From peplum tight fitting sweaters to roomy dresses, knits added texture an comfort.



























STATEMENT NECKLACES AND BELTS

From graphic metals to over the top crystals and bling.
