Do you need help with?navigating?your way through the new collections? Here, we get four fashion savvy shoppers to offer you a teaser of their AW wish lists. First up on our list is Irish blogger Jessica Garland Blake.

Your Favourite trend??There are so many! But I think
my favourite is a cape.

Which label did it best? Roksanda Ilincic and Temperley London for starters. Alexander McQueen features beautiful floor-length embroidered capes with gold moons and stars. But the capes at Erdem have inspired me to pour my penny jar onto the floor! The one I’m coveting is velvet, and is beautifully embellished with?floral embroidery, and finished with a white lace collar.

How do you build a new season wish list? When considering a purchase, I ask myself if I’ll wear that item the next year. It’s important to visualise yourself wearing?it at different occasions and to make sure it works with other items in your wardrobe.

Which Irish designers are on your radar? I think J.W. Anderson is doing really great things right now.

Your must-have item??A black dress. I have a black mid-length dress by Vivienne Westwood that ties at the waist and I have worn it about 100 times. It’s so easy to pair with really colourful heels.

Jessica’s AW wish list

The colourful ruffle silk blouses at Roksanda are stunning and I would love to find something similar on the high street. Away from the catwalks, Topshop has some terrific shirts with just a small ruffle around the neck.
