Paris Fashion Week Intro

Paris Fashion Week in the glamorous city of Paris, France; ran from the 25 of September to the 3rd of October and as an avid bilingual French speaking individual (did I mention French loving couture as well), I possibly could not be left behind in some of the fabulous fashion festivities in my favourite off-shore city (Harare is my number 1)! I maybe in Africa but that does not stop me from broadening my horizons, dreaming big Empire! Top of the range designers were showcasing their collections for Spring/Summer 2013 and since it’s already spring down south, I thought it was more than befitting for me to share some of the looks that are Spring Fashion!

All the collections I’m sharing are some of the pieces I admired as well as the designers. These collections represent who I’m through and through from the colours to the details on the garment to the jewellery and the hair. I looked at what Tendai Sophia would wear in a day in the name of my Glamour thesis. My focus wasn’t on the top range designers but more on the sensation behind the design as well as their theme. I vastly admired Alex Mabille, Tracy Reese, DSquared and the Louis Vuitton men’s collection.

I’m loving the City of Lights!

So the next three postings are all on the designers I admired. Happy Reading Empire!

Alex Mabille

Alex Mabille's collection was ladylike with feminine pieces consisting of bright colours and my favourite clothing right now which is the thin knit jersey. I was also inspired by the shirt collar pieces and the checked ladies shirt in the blues and pinks. A very lovely collection in my opinion that can be incorporated in everyday life. Very Uber Stylish for me.

The Blue Checked shirt

The Pink Checked shirt

I would wear these pieces everyday as they are not only stylish but comfortable-looking and totall wearable

The thin knit jersey or Pullover jersey

The feminine collar. I'm loving the lace detail on the shoulders.
