As we now sort out autumn / winter dress for

the looming cold weather season-

the fashion calendar is fast forward focused

on the collections being presented for Spring 2016.

The daily calendar and the fashion calendar may not be

in synchronised harmony, but that’s to be expected

as fashion is all about ‘the what’s next factor’.


As New York Fashion Week,  Spring 2016  (10 – 17 September)

comes to a close, consider a few presentation highlights.

After all, there’s nothing wrong with planning ahead!
