British label to show at Paris couture week!

The incredible British design duo ‘Ralph and Russo’ have been invited to show at Paris couture fashion week. Even though the pair are originally from Australia we adopted them as our own when they launched their label here in the Uk, London only six years ago. What an amazing six years its been for them as they started with just one sewing machine, you’d think with having some of the highest paid celebrities including Beyonce and Angelina Jolie being their biggest fans, its every designers dream. To hype up their achievement even more according to the sunday times they are the first brits since 1915 when designer Lady Duff-Gordon was invited to show in the early 20th century. I wish them all the luck in the world!

Paris Fashion Week!

Over the last couple of days the capital of romance took to the catwalk to showcase their collections for next spring its been a pretty spectacular month for fashion and Paris is the icing on the cake. Some of my highlights so far include Balenciaga,  Barbara Bui and Nina Ricci. I’m sure you’ll agree. Balenciaga has curved and cropped silhouettes with a sportswear flair, i’d even go as far as saying ‘j’adore cette collection de mode’ so my french might not be brilliant but you get the idea! Barbara Bui’s collection is a vision of white, blue and orange with quite a masculine take on next springs trends. Now for my final highlight of the week so far is Nina Ricci with the garments involving chiffon ruffles, sequins, pleats and florals and that’s just the prints and textures, what’s not to love? Paris is so far living up to its expectations. Enjoy!
