A very luxurious and ambitious collection from a Project Runway Alumni. Really fond of the colour palette, love the gold and silver hues.

Key take-home message: Go with different skirt lengths for different events, and again it’s all about mixing textures textures and textures!

A collection with a silhouette aimed at making women feel sexy and confortable, and doing it for herself. An interesting use of beading and pearls to create that desired silhouette!

Key take-home message: It is acceptable  to experiment with tie-dye garments. Perhaps opt for earthy, terracotta and green hues?

Alexander Wang

Typical Wang territory, street-cool collection! A very dark, New York, dishevelled glamour collection, not aimed for your typical girl next door.

Key take-home message: Leather, denim, mesh, shredded trousers and oversized jackets should all be in your closet next season.

Herve Leger by Max Azria

_AG0001_426x639 _AG0012_426x639 _AG0017_426x639 _AG0020_426x639 _AG0022_426x639 _AG0032_426x639 _AG0033_426x639 _AG0044_426x639 _AG0048_426x639

As the brand celebrate the big 3-0 this year it explores different territories. Sleeves were architechtural, the tones were very neutral and pearl embellishments were used to contour the body. Still very feminine with less strict shapes at times.

Key take-home message: Try creating movement to your body by wearing form creating dresses with flattering embellishments.

Mara Hoffman

Absolutely love this collection. Very representative of summer nature, in a cool, breezy, and stylish way. The designer focused on pretty patterns and modern cuts. Overall, a very successful collection.

Key take-home message: Don’t be afraid to experiment with summer patterns for a chilled, laid-back vibe.

  1. Hi Mimi! I see you take the time to go through every show! Which, by the way, means we can already be friends!!
    I like how you wrote litte conclusions as footnotes. Spot on about the tie dye but I’m going to have to pass on the same level platforms!
    With love,
