I’m always incredibly excited for the Marc Jacobs show at New York Fashion Week! I love Jacobs' energy – he really transports you to another world through his pieces. The colour, the sparkle, the textures – he really delivers on fun and indulgence like no other (particularly among American designers). I’m excited to see the set, and how he presents the collection – Jacobs is always a breath of fresh air at NYFW, which tends to be more commercial than experimental.

If you’re gonna do New York, do it right. Proenza Schouler’s collections are evocative of the sleeker cuts and fabrics we expect of the New York season, except they fail to bore. Futuristic tailoring with an asymmetric bustier here and some leather balloon pants there - I like to think this is what today’s Carrie Bradshaw would wear. Plus, I’m a little bit in love with Jack (McCollough) and Lazaro (Hernandez).

I am most looking forward to Brock Collection - the clothes are just so beautiful. Laura Vassar and Kristopher Brock's designs are genuinely the clothes of my edgy period drama dreams: the vibe is to dress like a Victorian, only with more vaccines and less being subservient to men.

I'm not sure if it's cliché to say I'm looking forward to The Row's new collection, given that every fashion editor does, but I'll say it anyway. The mysterious Olsen twins always pare their presentations down to simply the choice essentials (last season, the show space was an empty hall, with just benches and a gorgeous soul music soundtrack), and I can get behind that message for 2020.

I am very curious to see what trick Prabal Gurung has up his sleeve, since he is the king of mixing patterns and colours. Personally, I'm not into vibrant colours and large patterns in clothing, but it always impresses when someone pulls off extravagant, loud pieces, the way Gurung does. Especially during winter time, patterns can look off-season easily, so I have my eyes peeled for his A/W 20 collection. Also, I won't lie, when I saw him on Next in Fashion I loved his sassiness and commentary, so I am intrigued!

I'm counting on romantic Rodarte to conjure up Austen-esque escapism, momentarily carrying us away from impending environmental and political doom. Current mood: staring out of a bay window with clasped hand on heart, whilst I wait for Rodarte's usual flounces, fluttery frills and fresh flowers (minus the alliteration), and perhaps even a bonnet or two.

Following their 2018 exhibition Eckhaus Latta: Possessed at the Whitney Museum, and idiosyncratic shoe collaborations with Camper and Ugg, I’m excited to see what’s up next for design duo Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta. Their patchwork knitwear two-pieces from A/W 19 were sensual AF, and who could ever forget their S/S 17 campaign shot by Heji Shin, in which real couples engage in the act of sex, albeit sex obscured by pixelation? The casting for Eckhaus Latta is especially good when Walter Pearce and Rachel Chandler of Midland Agency are involved, and it's looking likely that Paloma Elsesser will walk for them again this season; she is pure joy on the catwalk.
