We have a guest blogger! Tia Paranjape has worked for the likes of Vogue, Condé Nast Traveller and L’Officiel and she will be giving us her spring trend picks! Read more from her and her bio below.
Once again as the seasonal clock strikes, fashion springs into a land of a million possibilities. So, who would you like to be this season? Flapper girl, gypsy queen or a 1950’s domestic goddess—the options are endless. Almost as soon as a collection hits the ramp, fashionistas world-over place dibs on their must-have looks for the season. As for us— the eat-sleep-breathe fashion types, we are charged to re-invent ourselves and challenge our own style quotient. The process is simple- spot a trend that calls out to you and flaunt it like you own it! Now, all you have to do is take your pick— Every day for the next few days we will be posting spring’s most blatantly fabulous trends and of course …my favourites.
Coming of Age
The beautifully haunting presence of eras gone by dominated the runways this spring. The spirited sixties, post-war ebullience of the fifties and the unapologetic opulence of the twenties hung in the air as designers paraded their ‘age-old’ inspired creations with their signature styles. Travel back in time and zero- in on the era which brings out your inner diva.
