Four glorious weeks of fashion, which began in New York on September 6, concluded in Paris last evening. We’re exhausted but exhilarated. A W shares today, some of the hottest trends from the London and Milan Fashion Weeks. (Photos:

SHEER — Designers Emilio Pucci, Bottega Veneta, Temperley, and Preen were among those who upped the style ante on sheer with white, prints and stripes to create fabulous pieces for next season.

PRINT — One of the dominant trends at both London Fashion Week (LFW) and Milan Fashion Week was undoubtedly print. Designers such as Moschino Cheap and Chic, Louise Gray, Gucci, and Marni, showed everything print: from animal to floral and graphic in bold, bright colours.

STRIPES — Designers were bringing their A game and ‘got’ their style stripes, literally, as it were in London and Milan. They were vertical, horizontal, and paired with everything from prints to sheer to leather.

LEATHER — Look out for plenty of bright, light leather come next season.
