Sew the Trends: London & Milan Fashion Week, Fall '16


As one would imagine, the looks that walked down the runway in London and Milan the past few weeks were much darker and heavier overall than what we saw in New York. Two of the main trends we saw in several shows was the surplus of sequins and velvet, these two fabrics will be mainstays for day and night this year. Things to make now? Bow front blouses, sequin everything, velvet shorts and flowing midi dresses. Things to make later? Dramatic statement capes, monochromatic hounds tooth suits, long sleeve velvet dress and outrageously large coats.

Take a look at the top seven trends we saw walk the London and Milan runways and that we can’t wait to start making now and later!
