WITH the changing seasons comes new trends in fashion, food and interiors, and I always get excited about the arrival of new trends and the creative process that goes with it.

There's certainly a look to suit everyone in the new key trends for Autumn/Winter 2015, I've rounded up some of the key themes below: Decadence A big trend for this season is full-on glamour with sensual fabrics, metallics and Art-Deco detailing.
