Right as we speak major designers are showcasing their Haute Couture Autumn/Winter ‘17/’18 collections in Paris. Owing to this, our Instagram feeds are being flooded with various celebrity happy snaps, sneak peeks into the collections and behind-the-scenes model antics.
In celebration of all things fashion, we have picked 5 of the major styles seen this far at fashion week so you can be in the know.
1. Sheer details
Sheer fabrics have graced various runways thus far. Dior has pioneered this trend, taking the naked dress to a whole other level. Sheer details were also seen in Rodarte’s spring RTW collection (showcased at Haute Couture week), Iris Van Herpen’s collection and Schiaparelli’s collection. Keep an eye out for this one, it going to be big.

2. Pastels and floral
Pastel and floral patterns aren’t usually the go to in winter, however judging by the frequency on the runway, times are changing. Soft pinks, peaches and lavenders graced the Rodarte runway, while stronger toned pinks and yellows made up intricate florals in Giambattista Valli’s show.

- Ruffles and Detailed Sleeves
Ruffles and detailed sleeves are having a major moment for this fashion week. We have seen soft flowing ruffles in Rodarte and Giambattista Valli. While Chanel experimented with different sleeve variations including off the shoulder, billowing sleeves and adorned sleeves. The off the shoulder trend is here to stay and will only continue to get bigger and better judging by these styles.
Autumn/Winter is all about layering and large structured coats, and this trend is going nowhere. Chanel and Dior cemented their lead in this field with strong panelled trench coats and beautifully tailored trousers.
- Belting and Synched waists
Keep and eye out for some belts girls, because this trend is looking promising. Belting and synching of the waist was seen in Dior, Schiaparelli and Ralph & Russo. Each designer incorporated understated leather belts to some outfits to elevate the look and add an extra touch.
