Brown Thomas is Ireland’s most luxe department store, so it’s no surprise that its catwalk shows are a glittering highlight of the fashion calendar.
The event is a who's who of the industry and the people watching is almost as much fun as the show. But it will always be the clothes that are the star attraction...
The AW13 collections showcased last week and the event was as good and as great as anticipated, as the store unveiled the key trends that will be shaping our new season wardrobes.

Key trends included The Lady – inspired by Hitchcock’s Femme Fatales – along with punk meets grunge, minimalism, and boy meets girl.

And where high fashion leads, the high street follows - so what should we look out for in Topshop, River Island et al in the coming months?
Cocoon shapes, strong shoulders and cinched in waists are all bang on trend. Oh, and tartan – lots and lots of tartan. But we knew that one already.
