You read it here first, but there’s a 99% chance you’ll hear it there next.

“Do you think my face would suit Princess Diana hair?” asks a fashion editor whose mind has wandered quite far while waiting for the next show to start.

Yep, the People’s Princess is trending in a big way. The late Lady Diana Spencer is inspiring the runways through puff sleeved blouses, shoulder pad blazers and decidedly retro knickerbockers. Think ‘80s silhouettes but with a modern – and way more wearable – spin.

“I’m so over millennial pink!” agree a group of attendees who believe their individual outfits look coordinated enough that they’ve got more chance of being photographed if they stick together.

Though we never thought we’d see the day, millennial pink might have a little competition on its hands. The style set have declared that lemon yellow – the subtle, dusty hue previously worn by those under nine months, or over 90 years – is here in a big way. They like it paired with existing wardrobe staples (think vintage-look denim and plain white t-shirts).

“I spent the weekend binge-watching The Matrix trilogy,” says the girl wearing sunglasses which are so microscopic they cannot possibly offer a sufficient amount of sun protection.

A casual 19 years after the first film made its cinema debut, the cult sci-fi hit The Matrix has cracked the mainstream fashion world. Inspiring the masses to rock tiny sunglasses, patent leather coats and slicked-back hair on their Sunday market run, the trend will be out in full force during this year’s Fashion Week too.

“Pass me my teddy?” shouts a girl who is probably a little old to be carting stuffed toys to industry events.

No, it’s not that kind of teddy. It’s a neutral-toned shearling overcoat – nicknamed a teddy bear coat for it’s delicious snugglability – and there’s a strong chance you won’t make it through winter without one. (Just kidding, you’ll be just fine, but you will discover that they look simply smashing thrown over the top of every single thing you own.) The fashion set have caught onto this fact, and will demonstrate multiple ways to rock yours while they’re milling about between shows.
