Runway report: All the key trends from the fall/winter 2020 shows

5 March 2020


New (and nostalgic) aesthetic vibes to channel now.

As we anticipate autumn dressing, the northern hemisphere’s fall shows strike at just the right time to feel reinspired. Though fashion is flexible and personal, it’s always enlightening to dissect overarching trends from the new collections; questioning where they came from, what they mean, and how they translate to our current wardrobes.

From prim and proper outfits marching down catwalks, to fashion’s renewed appreciation of all things theatrical and extravagant (and ’80s), to those that are taking things very seriously, the recent runways have presented a vast array of reactionary thinking regarding the state of the world.

Some designers are choosing escapism, while others, like Demna Gvasalia at Balenciaga, prefer an outright apocalyptic approach. Either way, there are still threads to pick up from the northern hemisphere collections, and themes that will permeate New Zealand more quickly than ever.
