As Spring/Summer 2017 draws to a halt on the catwalks of the four major cities, we walked away bedazzled by its statements, its pops of colour, its new creative directors that gave new lease of life into some of the most beloved houses of fashion, its throwbacks to past decades and its moments that made us quite literally say "oh my god". In Paris, Chanel gave us robots. Yes. Actual robots were the first models to strut onto a technology themed catwalk, with the girls wearing snapbacks and carrying small sparkling robot purses (think futuristic streetwear meets 1980s prints with the classic Chanel silhouette). Saint Laurent gave us black & white along with tailoring, both with classic 1980s shoulder pads right through to fitted suits to show off the feminine silhouette. The house of Dior was given a new lease of life thanks to its fresh creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, who gave us statement tees, my favourite being "we should all be feminists". In New York Marc Jacobs took us to the dressing up box mixing dreadlocks, bright colours and gorgeous prints that will make a statement and make any passer-by think "wow". Alexander Wang also went street wear with a touch of neon and sports luxe thrown in their with his collection.

Over in London, as well as MulberryJasper Conran went for dark toned stripes, in multiple shapes mixed with dresses and earth-toned suits, VERSUS Versace gave us mustard yellow colours (my personal favourite trend for the season) mixed with sharp cuts whilst Simone Rocha completely reinvented the suit, taking elements of its shape and cutting them into sharp shirts, dresses and grey mac coats. And finally over in Milan, Moschino also took us to the dressing up box, creating playful outfits that looked like Barbie cutouts from a magazine with a 1950s retro twist, Gucci made pink the hottest colour to wear for Spring/Summer 17 alongside yellow, whilst Jil Sander mixed three trends together, think 1980s suits meets stripes meets black & white (if you thought killing two birds with one stone was good, this is even better). And finally, Prada made black & white a thing, mixing the two contrast colours in its pieces alongside the house of Saint Laurent who showcased pretty much the entire show in the colours, proving that black & white can certainly be worn in any context, at any time of the day and in any piece of clothing that is creatable. 

So there we have it, Spring/Summer 2017 and what I think will be hot of the catwalk when the new season arrives. What do you think of Spring/Summer 2017? Who were your favourite collections from the shows? What's your favourite trends for the season and what trends will you be trying out?

When it comes to documentaries, Netflix has them all. From crime to culture, history to art, but for us fashionistas, the documentaries surrounding the world we obsess and love are the ones that we add to our lists, the ones that we blog about and the ones that inspire us to write, to take photos of amazing style in the streets and even want to design and make our own clothes. So, I thought it would be a good idea to compile and share with you ten of my favourite fashion documentaries that have inspired me, given me something to think about and has left me at the end of the closing credits thinking to myself "this is why I love fashion".

And so I begin with an inside look into the world created by the legendary Italian fashion designer Valentino Garavani. A fashion designer that is beloved by the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Donatella Versace, Anna Wintour and countless clients and celebrities that have sported his legendary designs on the catwalk and red carpets alike. The documentary gives us an inside, behind the scenes look into the dramatic retirement of Valentino as he comes to the end of his fifty-year career, and tells the story of his relationship with his business and long term partner Giancarlo Giammetti. A beautiful story celebrating his career with a party to outshine all parties, and of course an exhibition in Italy documenting and showcasing his best work from his detailed and beautiful craft.

For the past one hundred years, British Vogue has been a shining beacon of fashion, culture, style, beauty and photography for its readers. And so The National Portrait Gallery in London has put together an exhibition of some of Vogue's best work to showcase to fashion lovers. It charts everything from its more artistic, hand drawn logos of the early 1920s right up to its current digital and more modern issues in 2016, an event that is surely not to be missed.

But what will you find there? Well, showcasing at the event is everyone that has contributed to the magazine in some way, from models such as Kate Moss in her knickers and a military, Union Jack leather jacket shot by Mario Testino, to the late Princess Diana in a wedding dress and a smile to die for.
