By Frances Burscough

Autumn/Winter 2016 will shine bright like a diamond if the first night of West Coast Cooler Belfast Fashionweek is anything to go by.

Opulent jewel colours of emerald, turquoise, amethyst, ruby, sapphire and topaz accentuated shimmering metallics such as bronze, silver and gold throughout the latest designer collections.

Numerous new trends emerged on the runway, including oversized knits in chunky merino wool roving by Agne.

Revealing their wares for the new season were Blush Boutique, Grainne Maher: Vault, ONA by Agne, Nor Lisa and Spoilt Belle Boutique.

Speaking about her first appearance on the Fashionweek catwalk, knitwear designer Agne said: "My label ONA by Agne has had such a fantastic reception since it was launched in August and I can't wait to see what lies ahead for my brand."

Owner of Spoilt Belle Boutique Rachel Shivers said: "We have been participating in Fashionweek since I launched my first shop. Our participation in Fashionweek has become a key date in our seasonal planning."

Today's show featuring the creme de la creme of high street fashion sees the return of Next, Remus Uomo, Marks & Spencer, Oasis, DV8 Fashion and Boux Avenue.
