Autumn Winter 2017-2018

I always look forward to the new seasons and seeing the new styles in the shops and on-line, especially the Autumn season.  This Autumn sees many new trends coming in.

“fashion is retaining its sense of fun, its colour and glamour.”

Vogue France.

There are some beautiful colours such as olive, red, orange, greys and muted blues adorning the latest clothes.  There are also some gorgeous colour combinations such as orange with dark rusty shades as seen within Victoria Beckham’s collections.

Long dresses along with loose jumpers and patterned skirts are some of the styles which are in fashion.  Rich opulent fabrics such as velvet are also being used.

One of the trends for the season is called Ethnic Geo, this fits neatly into the designs which I have been producing recently.  I have been creating pieces of jewellery based around the textiles and henna work of South Asia and have been making pieces which are angular and square in shape and form.  Here are a couple of examples.  The gem stones used are fire coloured garnets and midnight blue sapphires.  The first piece is a hand piece, with a fine silver cuff and ring attached by a chain.  The second piece is a fine silver ring.
