Trending: Pom Poms

Fashion lovers how you doing?

 Did you all love the fashion at the MET Gala that took place on Monday, who was your best dressed, please check out our instagram page to see pics of who wore what.

The pom pom trend has caught my eye and I'm loving it because I believe an accessory always makes an outfit look major HAUTE adding that distinctive touch and with an over-sized pom pom you will never go wrong. I spotted Mira Duma  recently at this season's Spring 2013 Couture shows, loved every outfit but what stood out to me was the pom poms she she had on her coats and I knew instantly that its gonna be a trend that will follow but most important I thought it was a  very fashionable and cute way to accessorize your winter coats and beanies adding some glamour, and a playfull edge.

As I did my research I learned that the particular  fur pom pom is actually a brooch from Russian designer Viva Vox fall 2012 collection which were feature on the front and shoulders of coats.

So all we accessorising our coats this winter with some over-sized pom pom or something unique like that to add a playful edge even if its a DIY ? Please comment below and let me know what you think of this trend

SAFW: The Sheer Glamour Show

Hello my fashion slaves…

Last Friday night my partner in fashion and I headed to Rosebank’s Crowne Plaza hote for SA Fashion Week, The Sheer Glamour Show; showcasing latest Spring/Summer 2013/14 hair and fashion trends. A collaboration between hair stylists, Ntato Mashishi who is associated with Motions and Matthew Mansor, a local TRESemme stylist; and fashion designers; Gert-Johan Coetzee, Stoned Cherri, Vesselina Pentcheva, Clive Rundle, Rubicon, Black Coffee, Suzaan Heyns, Muntsho and Terrence Bray.

I have to admit when I got the invite and the venue read Crowne Plaza I was a bit concerned about the space capacity, it’s not a big hotel and for the life of me I could not imagine how they were going to execute such a large event. To my surprise the space seemed sufficient for the number of guests that attended, except for parking which was a nightmare. The show did start late (what fashion show doesn’t) because of jammed sliding doors dealing to the marquee (don’t ask).

Ok enough yada yada, let me not bore you with uncessary details…
