Spring Fever

Orange is the new black!

10702081_10152367814315373_979297595607472020_n

This weekend I took to this trend with my outfit consisting of the bright orange colour fashion must have this spring wearing the Babydoll Maxi dress from Hello Molly Fashion.

The fiery hue has been spotted all over spring 2014 ready to wear shows, making its way from lips to clothes, bags and shoes. With the addictive television series Orange Is The New Black not even realising they were predicting a major colour moment for this seasons fashion trends.

Dare Hair

Bold hair colours is a new trend that is sticking around this spring with celebrities from Kylie Jenner to Nicole Richie daring to stand out. I completed my weekend look with a pastel blue toned hair colour that complemented the orange dress to my surprise. New brands have taken advantage of this array of colours on the top of our heads with Nak hair for the brave and permanent colour and Dare Hair Colour around for a good time not a long time with wash out hair coloured products.

The Myer SS15 Launch injected fun with coloured hair by Kevin Murphy to set the ice cream pop tone with high-profile names providing a star-studded boost to the show, which had models stomping down the catwalk with candy-coloured hair.

Zimmermann- New York Fashion Week

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:

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.

“I’m too fat!”- Young girls body image issues

Today a little girl who was about 9 years old came into my work with her mother, they were looking at clothes when her mother pointed out a pair of denim short shorts for the girl to wear. I was shocked when I heard the young girl reply to her mother stating “I’m too fat to wear them”.

little girl

This made me realise, the shocking truth about body image in today’s society and how it has now started to effect the young and innocent children before they hit their teen years.  Young girls in primary school should be excited to wear those bright and colourful outfits making all the fashion faux par moments they can, these are those moments we look back on and laugh about. We all have these memories of fluro outfits and stages of punk pieces of clothing which has developed our style to give us all our own unique and personal touches. However young girls are being bombarded with appearances that are lowering their self-esteem and I think it is time that we begin to make a change as the youngest and the most impressionable are being impacted.

Fotolia_623661_XS

The media needs to realise the impact they are having on not only the people involved in the scandals on the front of a magazine, however the young girls and boys that are exposed to the media. It is not only the media anymore, It doesn’t help that real-life role models, mothers in particular, too often openly obsess about their own weight; that male role models, like dads and older brothers, make clear their preference for thinner women; and that an overwhelming percentage of girls’ clothing features body-hugging, midriff-baring styles most comfortably worn by the ultra-thin.

It is shocking that we as adults suffer from low self-esteem in regards to body image, however when it starts effecting our young children, nieces, sisters, brothers and grandchildren, its time to stop and realise the damages and begin to make a change.

I wanna know what you guys think, as a parent, sister, brother or passer-by. How can we fix this issue and make it aware to everyone. Suggest something parents can do or just have your say.

Did you know that body image issues have starting to develop at such a young age?

 WHITE OUT

The trends that highlighted the night consisted of a mixture of bright and soft colours, Jennifer Hawkins opened the show presenting the White Out trend. With this trend think fresh, clean, crisp shades of white this summer with white on white with beachside relaxed looks to flirty fun cocktail dresses. The white out trend continues on from winter with a summer take giving a fresh feeling to the trend.

SUMMER SORBET

Summer Sorbet is a trend with soft colours that are feminine and beautiful with flowing silhouettes and lace. Sorbet hues freshen the new season with washed out pastel colours including lilac, mint, baby blue, peach and pink. Pastel colours seem to be make a reappearance in summer as it gives a soft shade to the bright sky.

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.

The Myer Spring Summer 2015 Runway show always seems to produce a runway full of stunning designs and trends to following this summer. All these trends can be styled for a beach party, BBQ or a night out in the warm air that we have been waiting for. Myers preview of whats to come has begun to excite customer to shop these trends and try to look as good as Jennifer Hawkins does in them.
