Earlier this week, we dropped into Brown Thomas' Spring/Summer 2018 fashion show in Dublin so that we can share their predictions for Spring/Summer 2018 fashion.

We spoke with Fashion Director, Shelly Corkery, about her favourite designers for the year ahead and the trends many of us will be wearing. Watch the video in full above.

"I think, for sure, it's a feminine season so we're keeping it feminine but what I loved today was the adjacency of all the pastels to the colours - the strong brights - from last season which was great to see and great for that change," she said.

Dressed in Celine (check out those earrings!), Shelly explained that spring/summer is a time for glamour.

"It's definitely a season of decoration, it's a season full of ornamentation and full of 'non-conformist' glamour so I think that's why it's so different." 

"When you look at all the things that are coming through like we saw a lot of tailoring today but it's not just classic tailoring, it's deconstructed tailoring which means bigger shoulders, longer-sleeve lengths, slicing, splicing, over-sized jackets, pleated trousers..."

Looking for a wedding outfit?
According to the fashionista, midi-lengths and lots of colour will be seen throughout the fashion world for spring and summer but what will we Irish be wearing?

"I think for occasion wear, obviously there's quite a lot of embellishment which I think is really nice to see - everybody loves glamour but it is definitely non-conformist so for that reason it's kind of different and unusual. It's beading on the collar and it's acceptable during the day," she explained.

"It's very 'high-low' season and what I mean by that is high glamour with low heel. Whether its the sliders or whether its kitten heels or whether it's the trainers - obviously not for occasion wear.

"For casual wear, that street fashion injection was really really strong."
