For the Paris fashion, the collection takes inspiration from men’s wear-inspired tailoring to Eighties and Nineties influences, streetwear, ath-luxury, Americana and punk, a myriad of attitudes were at play for next season. Key ingredients included velvet, tartans, checks, metallic, the color red, glitter and lashings of fur — of the faux and eco varieties.
Among the trends, there were embellishments, especially crystals, across collections from denim to shoes, as well as tailoring. “A longer men’s blazer [emerged] as a standout ‘it’ item,” she said.

Neck ruffles and detailing
Working women- the well suited
Persian women love wearing tailored suits, and designers opted for the tailored suits at the catwalk track for the today's modern working women. The suits at the runway had red, and men's earthy and neutral colors such as gray and earthy yellow. The Pant silhouettes were fluid and loose fit with the casual approach.
Fringes and strings
Fringes and thick stitch lines of threads emerge strongly at the runways of Paris, and this trend has also emerged during the men's runway collection at the London Fashion week 2017. We spotted Fringes already popular at the Milan and New York fashion week which looks commercially very promising when it comes to the retail level of placements.
Designers at the Paris such as Maison Margiela, Balmain and Alexander McQueen played with the fringes placements for the dresses, Jackets and tops.
Tartans and Plaids
Designers went gaga over plaid, rocking looks usually associated with bagpipers, preppy Dads and punk rockers not only at the Paris fashion week but this trend is the biggest trend to follow this season as we have spotted it continuously at the Milan, New York, London as well as India's Lakme fashion week show.
The trend is also lauded by the major retailers such as Macy, Nordstrom, as the biggest commercially viable trend.
Statement sleeves - the romanticism at the sleeves
Sheerness is romantic and it sells very well that is why designers like Valentino, Lanvin and John Galliano added it to their collection at the Paris runway show. The trend is still holding its strength and we expect it to continue.
