Catwalk Update AW1617

An update from the recent runway shows FW 1617.  From a knit perspective... when will the high end catch up with the high street...? Afterall they are showing this collection just in the last two months and we are meant to salivate and wait... for another six to buy it? While high street stores turn out new fashion every size weeks. Meanwhile I have already completed my trends for FW 17- a full year away. 
We all know that the faster high street retailers will now have enough time to copy these catwalks to fly in and flood every chain in time for Autumn, Making a farce of the cycle anyhow... jcrew showed Autumn in "spring" colours... knits are now worn with bikinis... and most of us have the luxury of working in air conditioned or centrally heated spaces throuhout the year anyhow. Seasons now make little sense in fashion.
