Harvey Nics picks

Harvey Nichols, Manchester, showcased their vision for autumn/winter 2008 last week with a glitzy fashion show event. Knit layers proved to be popular on the catwalk along with a rural, tonal checks, plenty of plaid and traditional English tailoring also cropping up. Another key trend for the new season's menswear is attention to detail. Socks, surprisingly, play a key role, with trousers turned up to reveal all shades and patterns around the ankle. The brighter the better.

For ladies particularly, the English rose theme inspired autumnal-hued prints of foliage, ferns and wild florals. Evening wear consisted of elegant dresses in rich, deep tones. The frock look is prim and proper. Also see the return of lace and all things romantic and flowing. Smoking jackets are back for men along with velvet fabric. It's often difficult to translate from catwalk to high street seamlessly, however this season's look is soft and subtle, making it much easier for even Joe the plumber to look like Matt the model.

Hair, again, was in-keeping with the romantic trend for ladies. Tousled waves, tumbling tresses and soft plaits were styled by Barn/it at Urban Retreat. Make-up was kept soft and natural with rosy cheeks and cherry lips by Dior. After the show the store was open exclusively to guests so they could view and purchase from the collections.
