If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I am a huge fan of Dior. It is my most favourite fashion house in the world, and I look forward to their shows every season.
Sunday marked the start of Couture Fashion Week in Paris, so I was super excited to see what Dior had in store for us. After the sudden departure of Creative Director Raf Simons last year, I did wonder (as did many), how exactly this show would go. I was really quite a fan of Simons’ work, so am very disappointed we won’t be seeing his creative influences in Dior any more.
Back to last nights show. It was, as ever, dreamy. It apparently all ran very smoothly, despite their lack of Director. Located in the traditional venue, the Musee Rodin. The mirrored marquee setting was just beautiful!
This past week has seen the beginning and end of New York Fashion Week, where everyone’s favourite designers have been showcasing their Spring/Summer 2016 Collections. It’s been an eventful week too – with Givenchy’s first New York show since moving from Paris, and Candice Swanepoel’s now famous fall mid way down the catwalk.
There were so many shows that I couldn’t possibly list every one of my favourite looks, so I’ve just picked a select few that really stood out to me.
First up of course, is the fabulous Jeremy Scott. This is a show I was very much looking forward to, and it didn’t disappoint. What I love about Jeremy’s designs is that I would never wear them myself, but I find so much inspiration and beauty in them that I can’t help but be fascinated. This particular collection featured crop tops, A-line cuts, metallics and leotards. It was bright, bold; almost like works of art in outfits. There’s cartoon-like features too, just to add more fun. The statement bouffants and bold lashes completed an almost 60s style collection – with a modern twist of course. I can really see this trend taking off in the coming year – forget the traditional Spring pastels, lets take a leaf out of Jeremy’s book and go bright!
