The London Fashion Week has officially begun and the British designers made sure that this yearly event will be hailed as the “number one fashion destination” by coming up with the latest and grandest collection to rival other major fashion events that took place earlier this year.
British fashion icons Betty Jackson, Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood have all signed up for the fashion week together with Pringle of Scotland, Mulberry and Burberry Prorsum.
More than sixty catwalk fashion shows over the next six days will be held in this event which takes place after the highly successful New York Fashion Week. With this number of shows, organizers British Fashion Council (BFC) is optimistic that it will produce the biggest ever turnout of global buyers.
Council chairman Harold Tillman said that the event has reinvented itself for the past couple of years and that this transition has been beneficial for them.
Floral prints are back. At the New York Fashion Week which officially took off on Monday, a new line of collections from fashion designer Carlos Miele showed attractive floral prints. Models were seen in the runway wearing clothes with bold colors and bright whites. Curved lines of yellow, orange and red can be seen on the form-fitting dresses which the models successfully strutted down the catwalk. Off the shoulder dresses featured highly, along with single strap dresses which signals the necessity of the strapless bra.
These kind of prints are making a presence these days in recent fashion shows, as is the continuing popularity of maxi dresses. At the recently concluded Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the spring collection of Carolina Herrera also showed strong floral prints on her layered dresses. These kinds of dresses can either be dressed up for more elegance and glamour, or dressed down with a sharp jacket for a more everyday look that could be worn in the office.
Fashion designers Donna Karan, Jenny Packham and Tracy Reese also joined the bandwagon as flowery prints can be seen on their upcoming collections.
More than a hundred thousand stylists, buyers, fashion editors and celebrities are expected to grace this fashion event that’s currently ongoing.
Victoria Beckham’s love for fashion is definitely obvious these days as she’s gathering more supporters by signing up to popular social networking site Twitter. In just a span of few days, the fashion icon managed to get more than a hundred thousand followers.
The news that the former Spice Girl has joined the Twitter bandwagon spread like wildfire after actress Eva Longoria tweeted “Hey everyone, my dear friend Victoria Beckham is finally on twitter! Give her a warm welcome!”
The friends were seen recently dining out in London with Longoria wearing one of Beckham’s newest designs. The wife of football star David Beckham is hard at work in trumpeting her latest designs which will be seen by public for the first time at the New York Fashion Week this month.
Both Beckham and Longoria are featured in the new American advert for LG Fashion Touch phones, adding more glamour to the business fashion world.
It is definitely confusing to choose over multitudes of wedding shoes arranged neatly in major department stores. The worse thing is that the wedding is just a few days away and you have a lot to think about but getting the perfect wedding shoes is also an important thing to do. There’s also the fact that these shoes need to go with the dress and also need to be comfortable rather than eating your feet slowly throughout your “big day”.
Though this might be a tiring task for everyone, you should make it a point to get the wedding shoes yourself because if you let others choose for you, you may not like what they picked and that would entail another round of window shopping, fittings and many more.
It’s not just about the flashy design and the tall heels. Remember, no matter what you do, you will always be the star of the wedding so go for a pair of wedding shoes that would feel comfortable during your special day. Make sure that you get to walk well on those heels especially during the reception. You can be practical and still make your day special.
