Mercedes-Benz Fashion week Spring 2014

Mercedes-Benz Fashion week Spring 2014, designers this year may be changing my mind about the color yellow..

These shapes are elegant and the artistic print definitely gives the essence of these looks a pop that’s appealing to the eye. I really like how more designers are taking aspects of art into consideration for their designs. A modern conservative trend is coming back in this preview of looks; showing just enough skin without going over the top.

We’ll see presentations on the runway from over 90 designers, and also new faces in fashion through September 5th- September 12th. Interested to see what has been planned for us.

LONDON FASHION WEEK: TOM FORD 2014

LONDON FASHION WEEK: TOM FORD 2014

Tom Ford pleasantly surprised me as a label this season. Taking a complete turn from basic seasonal colors for spring, I think that it’s important to take note that, although pastels and cream colors of white and vibrant hues may have appeared often throughout fashion in the season of spring, Ford daringly presents a brilliant array of dark colors; representing an image of the strong bold sultry woman. The decorative detail on these pieces are extravagantly ornate and complex. The power of the confidently sensual woman commanding the runway.

Something else I really loved about Tom Ford’s collection was the fact that there was a correlation of bold glamorous garments accenting beautifully tousled up-dos with extremely natural makeup. Oddly enough, the combination of the two demonstrates an effortless appeal to a genuine artful essence that takes these looks to the next level of editorial fashion.

Clapping in a standing ovation for this look!

Love, love, love!

Burberry Fashion Week 2014

Burberry Fashion Week 2014

Impressed by these carefully selected color schemes.
There’s no doubt that a long coat is what you need in your closet. The lengths are captivating, providing graceful movement down the runway. Mindful of keeping that cinched waist, Burberry suggests to stay belted. Even your scarfs! Which I wouldn’t.

I think it just adds to the colors of the looks, when in reality the purpose of a scarf is to keep your neck warm. It’s cute for the runway but I seriously doubt that I’ll see this look take place on the streets. If the designer wants that certain color hue to be added to the dress, then I think they should have created a pattern to be sewn with that certain color coordination onto the dress. Of course this procedure takes time and careful measurements to complete the look. To me, from the viewpoint of a seamstress, this seems to be a lazy attempt to add color to the look; by just throwing on a scarf and belting it.
Just in my opinion.

blankets
I’m not sure why everyone seems to be so excited that the models got to keep their Burberry blankets with their personalized initials on them.
Take your blanket to the embroidery shop and have a replica made within an hour and for less than $20.

Always a true fan of Burberry though in it’s classic elegance as a brand.
