Seven days until London Fashion Week begins, how exciting! Invites should be on their way, model castings taking place, and the all important venues will be packed full of people getting the stage ready.
During the build-up to fashion week I always feel the need to run through some of the trends we saw on the catwalk during the previous fashion week...autumn/winter 2011 trends. I'm sure all you fashionistas know that fashion week showcases trends for the season ahead.
Autumn has definitely come upon us in the past week; the freakish winds with rain so heavy I thought it'll be impossible for it to get any heavier (so wrong)! But the AW11 trends takes the misery away.
Full of colour, bright colours, as seen at Bernard Chandran AW11 show in February. Other designers were not afraid to add some colour to their collections too.

We can't forget the floral trend, every season we see floral. It has become a classic now, check out the head pieces at Ashley Isham's AW11 show, chopsticks and floral...never thought of that before.

Other AW11 must-haves are stars, printed on dresses, tops or even as earrings. Dolce & Gabbana was sure loving this too.

Now I look forward to welcoming fashion week with the hope that it'll be calm and dry...I want to attempt to wear my platforms, but what's the bet I end up in my flats after the first few shows...
