When it comes to colour and pattern most of us tend to only dabble in a little leopard print, a slick of red lipstick here and there or the odd pop of a bright shoe. And yes, we've seen the trend for colour blocking, but give most girls a bit of black and some leather and she'll do wonders with it.
But looking ahead to autumn/winter comfort zones are about to be forgotten. Prints are set to be vibrant, clashing and know nothing about restraint. Working this trend early is Matthew Williamson's graphic black and yellow top paired with Diane Von Furstenburg skirt. The Bulldozer necklace and bracelet throw a hint of brilliantly gaudy glamour into the mix. Be bold, get brave with your prints.
Thanked by women worldwide for creating the 'wrap' dress, running a multi million pound fashion empire and speaking out against controversial issues facing the industry, Diane Von Furstenberg has spent 30 influential years in the business.
A fellow lover of print, Matthew Williamson is a designer loved by many for his vibrant dresses. Graduating from Central St Martins in June 1994 with a BA in Fashion Design and Printed Textiles, Matthew's first job following graduation was a freelance design project with Marni. He was then employed by Monsoon & Accessorize and it was his trips to India that inspired his designer dreams.
