As Los Angeles is finally accepting to provide me with a much needed fall chill I thought it was finally time to discuss A/W trends from 2017-2018.
September issues are like Christmas to me. I love to check out what my favorite publications are loving on the runway and which trends they’re standing behind. I pour myself into all the thick mags filled to the brim with fall fashion (and ADS) and try to figure out why these trends?
Here is my take on the autumn/winter 2017-1018
