Watch Naomi Campbells return to the runway as we take you front row and backstage at the Roberto Cavalli show with a hostess of top models & style icon Bianca Jagger.
Front row and backstage at Dean & Dan’s latest show (which had a high school prom theme) we spoke to the Canadian twins about their latest collection that included lots of beehives, bright colours and dresses perfect for any aspiring prom queen!
We popped into Jimmy Choo and here is a sneak peak of some of the great statement heels that we spotted amongst the bright coloured pumps with crystal heels and fur covered bags that will be in the labels AW 2012 collection. Which one do you prefer? We can’t work out whether we’re metallic pumps, striped boots or classic sandal kind of girls! It might just have to be one of each!
Join us front row at the emotionally charged final show of Raf Simons as next season the label’s namesake designer returns to the brand. The show included signature minimalist silhouettes in a soft, candy coloured palette that was ultra feminine. Structured, geometic skirts and corsets added a more avant garde, slim fitting shape to the collection which worked well with the oversized coats. A tearful farewell ensued and the fashion industry now waits to see what will come of this season’s big leadership changes.
We asked a range of international bloggers and stylists what they thought of the latest Dolce & Gabbana show and why they love the brand. You can see their responses right here:
This season designer Peter Dundas played with sheer fabrics and cut out shapes to create a less obviously sexy collection. Whilst retaining a strong sense of sensuality, the designer played with print, texture and layers with an elegant effect that was vamped up by carefully placed splits and slashed areas. We spoke to him backstage after the show about the latest collection, see what he had to say right here:
We passed by the showroom of fashion insider favorite, Raoul, to have a look at the latest collection and we weren’t disappointed. This season the acclaimed new designer played with proportions and prints to create a sleek, chic and modern vision for AW 2012/13. Patent leather and metallic details played off the soft silks and elongated silhouettes to great effect. The architecturally inspired collection’s elegant use of colour and cut outs is sure to be a big hit as both seem to be fast becoming key trends for AW 2012; we have already spotted them on the runways in London and Milan!
Inspired by her brother Gianni’s final show, Donatella Versace sent cucifix prints on crushed velvet and leather with mesh metal chain inserts down the runway to much acclaim. A stream of shimmering gowns closed the show which recaptured the glamour for which the house is so famous.
We love this gorgeous illustration by Kris Atomic of the colorful and fun packed Meadham Kirchhoff show that had models throwing glitter, wearing 70s inspired pieces and dancing down the runway!
