Like most girls my age, I am very limited to what I can buy fashion wise. I am a recent graduate who has yet to find my dream career in the fashion industry so I’m still living on a student budget, earning close to part-time wages. Therefore, I need to find ways to create a catwalk look at a lower cost (Luckily for me, I love the British High-Street so I still get a lot of satisfaction from buying from there).
The trend I love most this season is the ‘Fetish’ or what some call the ‘Domintarix’ trend. Personally I think it’s the fact that black is the key colour for the trend (a major trend in my wardrobe). However, this trend is not for the faint hearted and catwalk collections from the likes of Mugler presented pieces that fully represented the trend in all its glory.
I however, don’t have near enough fashion confidence to pull that off so I scoured the high-street to put together a toned down version of the trend… check out my high-street finds below and Tellus what trends you will be channeling this A/W!

I don’t quite know what it is, but as soon as July hits I get an instant urge to start preparing for my Autumn/ Winter wardrobe, when really I should be starting to enjoy the summer weather that has taken so long to arrive (or at least in Glasgow anyway). This year has been no different and I am extremely keen to start pulling together outfits for next season, especially since there are so many trends that I can’t wait to try out.
The trends for Autumn/ Winter vary from designer to designer. We saw masculinity and androgyny at Chanel last fashion week, a take on different eras: the forties and the sixties at Miu Miu and Prada respectively but my favourite trend has to be the comeback of 90s grunge and the use of harder fabrics such as leathers and glossy pvc, rougher edges through the use of studs and spikes, giving fashion a domintarix spin.
The main statements I’m hoping to implement into my look next season is simplistic make-up, using bold colours on my lips such as purple and black, crosses will be the print/shape I will definitely be trying out with maybe some feathers a la Ungaro, sheer tights, grungy knits with plenty of rips and holes, armour jewellery… the list goes on
Take a look below at some of my fashion inspiration for next season, can’t wait to start rolling out the trends….
