Stylish Stays: Fashion Week
It’s that time of year again when fashion packs descend on some of the world’s most stylish cities; New York, London, Milan and Paris, to see the world’s hottest fashion talent predict the next season’s trends. This September will showcase the looks for Spring Summer 17 and if you can’t get front row seats to your favourite show, don’t worry, as you can always celeb spot or watch the streetstylers from outside the designer venues.
