Bedazzled & Crystallised | Fall Couture 2017

Fall Couture fashion week took over Paris with bedazzled sequins, intricate embellishments and plenty of glitz and sparkle. Couture fashion is probably my favourite collections to admire because they’re so big and bold with this year making no exception and failing to disappoint. Here are my favourite pieces from this years designs. Zuhair Murad: A designer who I just recently discovered and instantly fell in love with. His pieces are renowned for their Princess-esque theme, sprawled with crystals, delicate fabric and long flowing gowns. This season’s looks were inspired by The Gibson Girl, the personification of the ideal woman, embracing power, sex-appeal and beauty. Elie Saab:  One of my favourite high end designers, Elie Saab’s theme this year couldn’t be more accurate than a medieval warrior princess. In fact, the Lebanese designer even called it ‘A tale of fallen kings’, with his pieces sprawled with embroidery, velvet, coats and capes.   Fendi:  Anything created/produced by Karl Lagerfield is bound to be a masterpiece, and this year’s theme being ‘theatrics’ was taken literally from the prints …

Affordable Fashion Straight From The Runway 18

Being a fashion journalist student is kinda like holiday-ing at a beautiful resort but unable to understand/speak the language; challenging but rewarding. I’m able to read and write and gain behind the scenes exclusive knowledge of the latest trends and runway styles but being a university student, simply cannot afford most of the pieces. I understand the daily struggle of browsing through your favourite designers only to realise that the one thing that’s within your price range are a pair of heavily reduced socks. That being said, I have located my favourite FRESH OFF THE RUNWAY looks and trends duplicates that are super affordable and stylish. Check them out and let me know your thoughts.

RTW SS17

There has been an abundance of Ready To Wear Spring Fashion shows popping out from every corner. From  Paris to London, to New York, fashion gurus and bloggers are buzzing with inspiration on how and what to style pieces for the coming months. And of course with the masses of runway collections there comes many competitions as to grab attention on which fashion show is the most spectacular! Everything from an aisle of pink glitter (Elie Saab) to a futuristic themed extravaganza (Junya Watanabe) showcased that the bigger the show the better! Here are my favourite collections (in no particular order) from the Ready to Wear Spring 2017 Fashion show. Talbot Runhof Inspired by a silk fil coupe design by Clara Fantoccoli, their collection showcased neutrals and delicate fabrics. It was minimalism intwined with bursts of details as seen in the photos below. I also gained inspiration by mixing different fabric materials together, for example silky shorts with pin striped button up collared shirt. One of the most renowned brands symbolic of elegance and empowerment is …

Models steal the runway

This past month, my infatuation with fashion and style has accumulated greatly, and I have a new renowned ‘energy’ that has made me more passionate and inspired with the fashion realm of glitz and glamour. In particular, my enthusiasm towards fashion runway shows and seasonal catwalks showcasing themes ranging from modern androgyny to 1950’s elegant and conservative styles are what have caught my interest and sparked my new founding flair in attuning to the beauty of the fashion design industry. My sudden captivity towards this phantasmagorical wilderness of clothing, jewellery and accessories broadcasting has also brought my attention to many models. In my opinion, a great runway model is a person who’s personality flairs within their stone glazed looks as they strut solemnly down the stage, revealing as much beauty and individual-ness as the attire they are representing. Here is a list of my all time favourite models who have captivated my attention and enthralled me through their charm and wit and hence highlighted the shows they were modelling in. 1.
