Fashion Trends from around the globe

This season’s must-wears reflect a touch of world traveller.

This season’s must-wears reflect a touch of world traveller.




The world in its vast uniqueness always appears to grab the attention of many a coveted designer. Whether its a time period or location, the world is a muse that always seems to find its way in our wardrobes and on our shoulders.

This season’s must-wears come from an eclectic mix of destination and era.


English rose and ‘floriental inspirations’

Seen on the runways of renowned designers, such as Elie Saab, is an eclectic mix of florals. This season will see you draped in oversized “floriental” (a term coined after the exotic perfume family) to the more demure, English Rose. The fabric and style is also a free-for-all, with florals appearing on flowing crepe dresses, to stand-the-distance denim.


Avant pop and surrealism feat. Paris and New York


Featured: (Far Left) Ginger & Smart Submerge Dress, (Top Centre and Middle) Tribal Aztec Crop Tees from Top Shop, (Middle and Bottom Centre) 3D Graphic Print Skirts available from eBay, Gant OPI Printed Shift Dress (03) 9340 5200.

Moschino raced to the runway with eye-popping graphic prints on flowing gowns. We also saw a world-traveller, nomadic, take on this trend. The concept is wearable art. Taking surrealism and avant pop off the walls and draping them around our waists. Its a hedonistic and care-free trend for those that aren’t afraid of the left-of-centre pops of colour and light.


Greens from the Amazon

Stock up on this one. The haute couture fashion faction appears to be mesmerised with this hue. The runways of S/S 2015 offer a mixture of bottle greens, emeralds and the occasional turquoise almost as a backlash to the wash of pastels we’ll see in the more current offering. Greens had a brief rendezvous in 2012 but we predict they’ll come back with a vengeance in the near future. Heed our words.
