China Fashion Week: Goddess of fashion

Tuesday, 29 March 2011
China fashion week kicked off in Beijing on 24th March. Fashion week in countries other than the four main cities never get coverage in the press. How could I possibly not post about this.

A brand that instantly makes you think 'goddess' has to be Lancy from 25 朗姿. Their latest collection rightly named 'Enjoy the privilege of being the Goddess' gave us a sense of the powerful, extraordinary women living in the 21st century.

Floor-sweeping dresses that sparkled in the light, a mixture of one-off shoulders and deep plunging neck lines. Gorgeous textures; silk, sequins, and a hint of leather were all seen.
To compliment the collection, the stage was gorgeous; almost like a valley!

Ready for Spring trends

Sunday, 20 March 2011
When I think of Spring, I see flowers, prints, and light colours. How desperate are you to change into your spring wardrobe despite the cold weather? The shops are depressingly selling bikinis already! Don't despair, with some layering you can still wear your spring clothes to cheer you up. Cardigans, blazers, and tights are my regulars for the cold.

Brightly coloured pieces seen at Bernard Chandran AW11 collection. Rich reds, pinks and navy make up the collection. Structured silhouettes and fine cutting, it was also a refreshing collection. Definitely a way to brighten up your wardrobe for autumn/winter.
