New York serves up fresh trends for spring 15 as attention turns to London

The spring 15 womenswear edition of New York fashion week drew to a close this week, passing the baton on to UK designers who will kick off the 30th anniversary of London’s week of catwalk shows from today (Friday).

Running from September 4 to 11 in New York, big name American brands including Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs and Diane Von Furstenberg all unveiled their latest collections, with a host of new season catwalk trends emerging.

London Fashion Week, which officially launched in 1984, began on Friday September 12, with five days of shows until Tuesday September 16 in and around Somerset House.

Highlights on London’s schedule include Burberry Prorsum, Christopher Kane and Paul Smith, alongside burgeoning brands such as Erdem, Roksanda, Mary Katrantzou, Peter Pilotto and JW Anderson.

For live reports from London Fashion Week visit drapersonline.com throughout the week.

The emerging trends we predict will sell:

Going gingham

A summery take on winter checks, seen in bold monochrome or lady-like pastels

Shin skimmers

Longer lengths win out on skirts and dresses – hems on or below the knee are key

What a waist

As hems get lower, waists get higher – look out for high-waisted trousers particularly

That’s a wrap

Wrap over details are a fresh direction to watch – overlapped skirt fronts, dress panels and db jackets
