And just like that, the Fall/Winter 2019 runway season ended. In a whirlwind, it created another new batch of memorable fashion moments that impacted and inspired us all. Case in point: Christy Turlington returning to the runway after a two-decades absence for Marc Jacob's NYFW show. An appearance by Grace Jones for Tommy Hilfiger in Paris. Or then, Max Mara quoting Linda

Evangelista in regards to their glamorous collection. Not to mention the fact that baby-Cindy, Kaia Gerber, was pretty much everywhere. Yes, there was the unmistakable scent of nostalgia in the air, largely evoked too by the garments themselves. We witnessed rehashing of seventies (Celine. Michael Kors), eighties (Max Mara) and nineties (Philosophy) styles with modern twists, as well as covetable collections from new and emerging talents.

However, we have to address the main talking point amongst fashion folks that arrived like a thunderbolt on the opening day of MFW; the passing of Karl Lagerfeld. We grieved, reminisced upon his work and watched in anticipation as the flow of tributes poured in. All eyes were of course on Fendi and then Chanel who presented their shows as emotions ran high. Chanel’s snow-covered runway in Paris was undoubtedly the cherry on the cake of all of them – a stunning set, major stars and dear friends of the deceased designer out in full force and above all, an exceptionally beautiful and wholesome collection. A true Winter Wonderland.

As we mourn what’s lost, we also look toward the future and continue to live in the moment with the excitement of shopping for the latest trends and putting together our wardrobe for the Fall. Spoilt for choice, we’ve selected ten of our predictions for the top trends that stood out that bit more.
