Marie Claire's September Issue

(Dolce & Gabanna silk chiffon star print dress)

Last night I joined the fashion fabulous, at Argyll Street’s Aqua Neuva, for the launch of Marie Claire’s September Fashion Issue - the issue that heralds the start of the new year of fashion, and deemed the most important edition of the year.

Their September Issue features Anne Hathaway on the front cover.

Whilst the fash pack sipped on champagne and giant, fish bowl like glasses of gin and tonics, and nibbled on delicious canapés, the rain held off just long enough for me to catch up with Marie-Clare’s Executive Fashion Editor, Tanya Semikoz.

Their predictions for this Autumn include a Mad Men inspired return to ladylike shapes and demure elegance (pussy bow blouses and classic pencil skirts) and a homage to the 1970's (jewel tones and luxurious fabrics) with shades of orange and snakeskin prints being key trends to keep an eye out for.
