The Brown Thomas looks you'll be crushing on next season

Designer inspiration.

The Brown Thomas autumn winter 2016 collection preview took place this week and if you're reading this, you probably know that it's a major highlight on the fashion calendar.


Every year, there's two major shows, one for spring summer and a second for autumn winter, both indicating the trends that are going to dominate the season ahead.

This collection brings together old and new: some of the labels that produce fabulous looks time after time and new names that bring modernity and freshness to the ever-changing face of fashion.

I have to give a special nod to the Peter Pilotto printed dresses because investing in one of these beauties is a timeless piece you'll have for life.

The below Alexander McQueen fiery show-stopper screams LOOK AT ME and again, it's a dress that will never date.

A note to all #chloegirls because as well as their covetable bags and whimsical lacy pieces, this dreamy coat is another wishlist piece.

If you follow the designer shows, you'll remember Dolce & Gabbana's Viva La Mamma collection for Fall 2015.

There's another nostalgic throwback to childhood too with their autumn winter offering as the mini dresses adorned with brocade, embellishment, and oversized buttons are just SO pretty.

A new designer coming to the iconic department store for AW16 is Ellery and if ever you needed some chic workwear inspiration, this is the label for you.

Alessanrdo Michele, creative director at Gucci, has brought new life to the brand since he came on board at the beginning of 2015 and the below looks is just one example of his love for print.

Finally, a moment for this Givenchy look. I'm currently obsessed with floral tea dresses and this one is given an overhaul by the cut-out detail.
