Designer 101: L.A.M.B.

Welcome to a new series I’ve decided to start on here, as the title reads, Designer 101. I wanted to dedicate a post to each of my favourite designers. Both as a place to showcase some my favourite pieces from past collections, which never made it on here, because I hadn’t started blogging yet, or had not yet discovered them. I also wanted to take some time to go through their history, how they came to be and what they specialize in. This is as much for myself as it is for you, but I like to do research and learn about things I have a great interest in. I figured, if I’m going to be doing all this research, I mights well put it somewhere. So, this will be an ongoing project, where I will post a few of these every once in a while. I think it’s also a great way for me to maintain consistency in blogging frequently on here. There are many, many designers which I adore and I’m discovering new one’s with each new season, so this will probably go on for years. I hope you enjoy this idea and maybe learn something too!

Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear Off the Runway

I’ve been sitting on these for so long … as aforementioned in my last post, my life was chaotic, beginning right around the end of fashion month & these collections got lost in the mix. I wanted to release this though, because it does have a few beautiful pieces, which didn’t belong to any particular fashion week and I’d like to start curating my favourites from Pre-Fall 2019. There is definitely a running ’60’s theme between these looks, which always and will always speak to me.

Happy Place & My Musings on Instagram

#WeAreHappyPlace Sorry to leave you, it’s been nearly two months since I last posted & I’ve missed being here dearly.  Life circumstances had me focusing on more pressing matters, but I hope to be back here more regularly now.  I have several blog posts I’ve been working on for a while and am excited to publish them over the coming weeks. Happy Place is the epitome of culture in 2018 (or dare I say it, lack there of).  Not a museum, not an art installation – just a  temporary pop up for people to go and take pictures for Instagram   Much like…

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear

Edgy & Romantic I have loved every fashion week this season, but Paris was the most stunning finale to sum up Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear.  Some of the most beautiful collections of clothes and the most insane & creative shows. Balenciaga I watched an interview of Anna Wintour discussing the collision of men’s & women’s clothes in conversation about Margiella.  The idea even that they should no longer be separated in department stores anymore and the concept that “everything is for everyone”.  While I do find myself struggling with the idea of a man wearing something overly feminine (I’m sorry, but…

Milan Fashion Week Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear

Imagination & Fairytale Inspiration So much whimsy was present at Milan Fashion Week.  Inspiration from children’s storybooks, exaggerated silhouettes & bringing the fashion design process right to the runway.  Be sure to let me know your thoughts & favourite pieces. Emporio Armani Elegant evening wear from Emporio Armani.  Though I’m a little too modest to wear a sheer top, I would love to have the guts to wear these gorgeous pieces. Etro Sexy surfer style at Etro   Bow crop tops (need one of these) and Baja jackets & paisley shifts. Moschino The most creative collection at Moschino   Taking the looks literally from…
