It might just be a reaction to the very high and unusual heels we’ve been seeing on the catwalk and some 80’s influences but I’m loving trainers on the catwalk. When I’m doing a film shoot all the crew is wearing sneakers but on a fashion shoot there will always be one of the assistants in towering heels. We’ve had a return of the oxford shoe and now trainers might just become a fashionista’s fashion statement. There were 80’s white reebok trainers at Ashish’s show and the Nike Air Max at Moschino Cheap & Chic and Puma trainers at Junya Watanabe.

Lily Allen and Eliza Doolittle have both worn trainers in their videos, but I still love that Lily Allen wore hers with prom dresses.
