From New York to London to Paris and finally, Milan, designers are debuting their fall/winter 2015 collections. There is just so much to look forward to. With so many looks to drool over, it’s hard to pick the best collections so far..but we’ll try.

Dolce & Gabbana paid homage to mothers everywhere. The brightly hued, floral-filled collection saw Italian and French phrases of “I love you, Mamma” and “For the most beautiful in the world” written in glitter across stunning dresses. They may not have paid taxes but Dolce & Gabbana sure adore their mothers.

Balenciaga went texture overload with furs and wools in classic patterns. Long skirts and Hitchcock vibes made this collection a real stand out with fashion lovers and critics.

The weather is still pretty warm in Canada, considering it’s October, so it’s not that outlandish to be discussing cool clothes for spring 2015. In fact, this weather only makes us want them sooner and you’ll see why. Some of the greatest designers and fashion houses on Earth debuted their collections in Paris and Milan and we’re left swooning!Chanel, Valentino, Dior and every major label in between offered strong clothes for bold, powerful women.

At Chanel, designer Karl Lagerfeld dared to pair silver with gold. At Alexander McQueen there was a mixture of fabrics and patterns with fierce results.  At Louis Vuitton, white and gauzy ruled the runway. The rest is just gravy. Enjoy!

Milan’s fashion week has already garnered a ton of gossip (grrr Katy Perry) and some of it is actually fashion related. Whether it was mesh, peek-a-boo styles or geometric patterns, Milan hasn’t disappointed.

At Prada and Dolce & Gabbana, vintage prints and streamlined, classic shapes made a huge impact. Several collections offered quirky styles, but more on that later.

Last fall, navy was a key runway colour and it looks like it may continue its reign this season. Houses like Fendi just couldn’t get enough.
