Guest Post: Fashitects writer Toni Tran talks LC:M and Vintage

Posted on

When I was first into fashion back in 2011, I got my inspiration from vintage thrift stores like ROKIT VINTAGE. I liked the statement pieces that were original classics and the main fact that I was sure to be wearing a one off. I absolutely love my thrifted items from Rokit, including the check trousers & purple trench, especially as they are unique elements in my wardrobe.

I can remember the first time I experience my ever Fashion Week. It was amazing to see so many stylish people in the fashion industry with international contributors and photographers all excited for what is next season's designer collection.

There is no doubt we cherish menswear designers, since London Collections Men has become a growing success and a development in fashion besides mainly being dominated by the female competitors. I guess in this current day, we are still influenced by vintage trends as seen in the LC:M A/W15 runways and as seen on the consumers of fashion.

Whether you like to combine a mix of high street pieces with designer and even that element of vintage, keeping the outfit modern without looking too old school or avant-garde is the trick. If you're daring like myself, bold colours, patterns or checks tends to be the main statements in an outfit and keeping the rest minimal is generally how my rule book goes. You don't have to be a genius to colour coordinate, or take your clothes to the tailors to get it altered so it is current to the modern cuts.

I have chosen my top four favourite trends I'll be scouting out for next autumn below.
