Belfast Fashion Week returned in style for another season of trends, tips and all the trimmings for Spring/Summer '17. It was my first year attending what has been deemed as Belfast's most fashionable event and so I was curious to see what would be sent down the catwalk. The fashion was delivered over several events and I was lucky enough to win tickets from a competition that Narah & Co were running (more on this online boutique later) for the Designer Boutique and Local Designer Show. Not wanting to miss out on what the high street has to offer this season I returned the next night for the infamous High Street Heaven show.

For me, three main trends dominated the High Street Heaven show. I'm already dreading my bank balance after incorporating these trends into my wardrobe this season... but I definitely feel these are three trends that can be revisited season after season. (Winner for the wages!)

Frill Seeker
Trousers, dresses, tops, sleeves, it is literally impossible to avoid this trend this season. I for one, am certainly not complaining. The frillier the better in my eyes. I know this isn't the case for everyone though so I was pleased to see it subtly incorporated within the catwalk, used to give the looks a more feminine edge.

Think Pink
The most gender related colour has been a standout this season across all the catwalks. We've all had it drilled into us from birth that pink represents everything girly, pretty and soft. Now it's storming across the catwalks in shades of fuscia, bubblegum and blush. Another one I cannot wait to fill my ever expanding wardrobe with.

Sunshine Shades
This is one trend that won't be for everyone. High vis vests, highlighters and Post-its this is a colour that's designed to be seen on the roads and in the office. Well now it's being seen sweeping across the catwalks. It's true, yellow is not the most complimenting of colours but shade is key, as is the shades you wear with it. The styling at BFW got it spot on with this trend, incorporating the colour in with one key piece, rather than sending the model down the catwalk looking like a highlighter.

I had such a fun time at my first ever Belfast Fashion Week and cannot wait to return season after season to check out the trends being delivered down the catwalk. Of course, there were so many more amazing looks and styles from the night so keep an eye on my Facebook for all the pictures from the night.
