Giddy Up Fashion Lovers

The Melbourne Cup stakes were off and racing today, where fashion filled the race track with bright pops of colour and flamboyant designs. My favourite look of the day was the gorgeous Gigi Hadid who was pretty as a picture in a pink lace Alex Perry and Jonathan Howard jewelled star headpiece. http://resources0.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/157744-aec6f34e-63c7-11e4-bdd3-73a977145716.jpg Of course Melbourne Cup is all about the fascinator, with the ladies trying to pick the perfect headpiece that will stand out from the rest. However standing out for all the wrong reasons was newly engaged Gabi Grecko, sporting her new engagement ring. http://resources0.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/224176-7f20c32e-63c5-11e4-bdd3-73a977145716.jpg Swiss special guest Bec Hewitt was eye catching in a black and white Roberto Cavalli tassel dress and neon green Neil Gregg headpiece and matching accessories. http://resources1.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/223869-2e90c948-63cc-11e4-a822-f0e45dcacc2e.jpg Red is a key colour of the spring racing season and looked radiant on Megan Gale and Rachel Finch sporting Yeojin Bae and Ward & Wylie headpiece. http://resources2.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/094578-0bbcdd28-63ac-11e4-8f83-4f43733686cd.jpg http://www.mamamia.com.au/wp-content/gallery/2014-melbourne-cup/458354428.jpg Popping colours of red, orange and yellow were contrasted with pretty pastel shades of lilac, mint and pink trackside with most women opting for sleek and chic silhouettes. Rebecca Judd was slimingly opulent in a corseted Dolce and Gabbana dress and Hatmaker headpiece. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/11/04/1415062344680_Image_galleryImage_Rebecca_Judd_in_the_Birdc.JPG Protectionist was the winner of the big Melbourne Cup day which sums up the ladies of the races in regards to their fashion perfectly. The spring races season has produced some amazing diverse looks with Derby Day being contrasted with blacks and whites, and Melbourne Cup brought out the bold and colourful putting a spring in the fashion step. The spring races fashion queen this year of course would have to go to Jennifer Hawkins. With a killer outfit at the Derby Day in a striking all black lace dress by no one other than Alex Perry of course! http://resources0.news.com.au/images/2014/11/01/1227109/249624-45134110-6169-11e4-a822-f0e45dcacc2e.jpg The dress was classy with an edge, with lace that looks like leather. Jen Hawkins definitely marked her 10 years since making her fashion debut at Flemington, the face of Myer can do no wrong! What was your favourite spring racing season look?

Zimmermann- New York Fashion Week

602629_485436598157717_456881947_n10609582_805455879489119_3069065529621892351_n

 

Zimmermann Spring Summer 2015 collection titled ‘Tell Me Seer’  was light and airy, full of movement and sophistication. Movement was paramount to Zimmermann’s pieces this season, and delicate shapes reigned. They came in printed silks and wisteria- and peach-colored lace, and wafted out from under pin-striped utilitarian vests. Pitting masculine against feminine is familiar territory for Zimmermann, and here she teamed her cascading gowns with cargo pockets, and sent out suiting in icy blue sharkskin. Timeless and modern, it is this constant level of design that keeps Zimmermann at the forefront of the Australian and international playing field.

Zimmermann Inspiration Board:

10614277_805481412819899_5019870495722302277_n

For the Spring 2015 Tell Me Seer collection, Zimmermann was inspired by astrological references, from David Palladini artworks to motifs of the tarot.

Float away with Zimmermann’s Spring collection, Zimmermann began in Sydney, with Nicky Zimmermann creating dresses and selling them at Paddington markets. Zimmermann took the step of fusing fashion with swimwear and presented it to the world. What was created was a new reference point for fashion focused swim that has continued to evolve over two decades. Zimmermann is a quintessentially Australian fashion story, who has joined the ever-growing Australian designers showcasing at New York Fashion Week, which grows the Australian support of the internationally recognised fashion label.

TROPICAL OASIS

Summer is the time for prints to emerge and take a stand, you can emerge from winter with lots of colour. Dress with bright colours such as green, yellow, orange and bright pink mixed with tropical inspired prints. This trend brings pops of colour and reminds us of those summery fresh fruits and animals that appear when the sun comes back out. Men seem to love this trend in summer time and the men on the Myer runway brought it back in style

WEARABLE ART

Art is not for just hanging on the walls this summer with punchy, technicolour shades and bright clashes of colour have defined a key trend. This trend can suit your personal style with having preference over bold graffiti brush strokes or geometric cubist prints the customer can manipulate the trend to suit their style. Colours come alive in summer with moods uplifting dressing with colour to make a statement with amazing designed pieces.

WORLD TRAVELLER

Think boho vibe, its global safari with animal motifs and silhouettes coming forth in summer. It is very relaxed mixed with mysterious and sophisticated, earthy colours are reminiscent of the desert and sky with prints reflecting the global inspiration with geometric tribal motifs, swirls and zig zags. This boho trend can be styled to relax beside the pool or glammed up in a floor length gown and will spark a huge following of success this coming season.
