This is the first year that I sat down and watch fashion shows on the screen.
In the past, I rely alot on magazines for still photos and by the time the magazines hit the rack, it would have been at least a month after the fashion shows. Even the videos on the internet are snippets.
With the rise of social media, brands are using various social media platforms to reach out to more people almost real time.
It is the season of fashion weeks. It is also the season major international fashion house showcase their Spring Summer 2018 collection.
New York Fashion Week, followed by London Fashion Week and now the happening as we speak Paris Fashion Week.
I followed the New York Fashion Week quite closely and these are my top two favourites.
Gianni Versace was the founder and the designer of Versace. This year is the 20th anniversary of his death. His sister, Donatella Francesca put together a tribute collection showcasing his iconic designs. You will see many of his glorious designs that are still very sought after twenty years later.
She also invited the models whom her brother engaged frequently for his past shows to make a special appearance.
Watch on for the golden appearance of Carla Bruni, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen.
The colours are so calm and alluring.
Pay very close attention to the bags the models carried. New bag straps are coming, mini bucket bags are so cute that I can’t help but to keep rewinding the videos.
Peek or cold shoulders is going to stay for the next season. For those who have already acquired peek/cold shoulders pieces from us, you are on point.
Some of you may think;
“What’s the point of watching these big brands? I am not going to spend that kind of money.”
“I don’t have that kind of money to splurge on clothes and bags.”
If you haven’t notice, the major international fashion brands are the indicators of what’s trending and very soon you will see similar styles springing up in the high street stores that many of you go to. Even the small local fashion online stores will have a fraction of inspired styles that you see on the runway.
So, if you have a particular style that you must stick to no matter what, you might want to start looking around for them and stash them away for the upcoming festive seasons before everything is sold out in your size.
It’s time to start contacting your personal shopper.
