The biggest lesson we learnt from fashion week this year, aside from the fabulous trends, was the instant pick up of these on the high street. It was an almost instantaneous reaction, and the biggest S/S17 trends turned into street-style straight away.
This is something we’re used to in the Pines and Needles offices. Everyone from our delivery drivers to our decoration team and tree managers in Scotland have to work and react in an instant, be it decorating an on-trend tree, picking the perfect time to chop your fir down or even the perfect time to deliver it to your door – we’re at the cutting edge and time is never on our side.
Our designers and the army of experts we work with all answer to a similar timeline to those involved in London Fashion Week. Christmas trends are just as big in our industry as the change of seasons is, however we only have one month a year to display all of our hard work. We started planning Christmas 2016 back in February!!
Mixing Christmas with fashion is the ideal blend, the opulence and glamour creates the perfect crossover. With seasoned professionals like Gisela Graham on board, we make sure your tree will always look runway ready.
Fashion week once again bought a few new trends and a few adaptions to old ones. It was only natural that at Pines and Needles we’re one step ahead of the game with our decorations, and, of course, they fit perfectly with the trends displayed in London last week.
