Fashion Weeks Highlights

After examining the fall 11 shows I've come up with my 3 favourite trends: sheers, androgyny, and fur.

So a lot of designers have been playing with a lot of sheers lately, going past the typical sheer blouse. Everything from skirts, to pants, to evening gowns are being done in sheer. If it's done right be can look classy, just make sure you're wearing the right underwear!

Holly Fulton showed a printed version.

Christian Dior went all out with a full length gown.

Roberto Cavalli

Chanel took a layered approach which really worked. I'm always surprised by how Karl can come up with such fresh ideas while still keeping very much within the Chanel aesthetic. 

Louis Vuitton

From menswear inspired pieces have to full-out androgynous outfits, manly is in.  I love the look especially when it is injected with some good preppyness and strong shots of colour.

Paul Smith

Okay, I could have done without the stars and treble clefs but I really like a lot of the collection. Tailoring was amazing and socks-and-shoes combos outstanding.

FUR- I'm no animal rights activist but I do feel bad for liking this trend so much.. but there is much better looking fake furs these days so I don't even know whether these furs are real or not. That being said, there is not denying that fur is fashion and this season it comes in every type and used it every way you could think of. It's definitely not just about the full length mink coat anymore.

Alexander McQueen
