hot trends always check out high street stores like
Oasis, which targets both a younger buyer and a more mature girl. To see what Oasis offers, scroll down this page for a selection of photographs from both the Oasis Catwalk show and their
Autumn/Winter 2007 Campaign. All images on this page

This season Oasis produces a collection of two halves.
Daywear is given an ultra modern puritanical make over with
simple shapes and minimal styling whilst eveningwear is knee
deep in eighties pop culture.
The Puritanical range epitomises the pared down modern mode
that permeated the catwalk this autumn 2007 season. With an overall lean
silhouette and minimal detailing, the puritanical design
elements give creation to real
clothes with a new grown-up sensibility.
Dresses are still the
essential fashion item and come in every incarnation known to
woman. These dresses have hemlines rising at a rate of knots. Look out for these three key
shapes of trapeze, pod and shift that run throughout the Oasis
For eveningwear, expect to see lots of patent, high shine and wet
look fabrics as Oasis does eighties.
Pour yourself into bandage
minis that give a nod to Hervé Lerger, or release your inner
child through cute playsuits worn with mannish jackets.
At Oasis tailoring makes a welcome return, giving a nod to the
medieval trend through hoods and cowls.
Fabrics include luscious
knits and outerwear wools that sit perfectly against delicate
silks adorned with William Morris-esque prints. Colours are pure
and simple; black is definitely back and sits against softer
tones of grey, taupe and milky white.
Fashion-Era.com looks at women's costume and fashion history and analyses the mood of an era. Changes in technology, leisure, work, cultural and moral values. Homelife and politics also
contribute to lifestyle trends, which in turn influence the clothes we wear. These are the changes that make any era of society special in relation to the study of the costume of a period.
