Runway To High Street: How Runway Collections Translate To High Street Fashion

  • Blog Post

Runways showcase collections from the most well-known and upcoming designers from all corners of the globe. Most upcoming trends originate from the runways and filter through to high street fashion, giving everyday people the option to get the hottest fashion from the runway for a fraction of the hefty price tag from their local high-street stores.

As soon as a look is walked down the runway, high-street designers are coming up with ways in which the outfits can be tailored for our everyday lives and are not only available to those with a large amount of disposable income. Take this look from a runway recently:
