Trend Watch LFW: FLORALS

- - Trends

London Fashion Week has been off to a good start.  We are seeing similar trends as New York Fashion week, but with exciting twists. Stay tuned this week as we will be covering the trends emerging on London’s runway.

Colour is in full bloom on the runway, with pink being the ‘it’ colour.  We are also seeing floral prints, which will be the first key trend that we will be covering.


Temperely London is a collection that stands out. Temperley London leads the way with the floral trend, as the collection showcases bold florals combined with leopard prints.  The collection is truly elegant. Read more about Temperley London’s The Story of the Orchidea Print on Temperley London’s site.
