Back in the 80s the look took a softer approach. The shoulders were broader, but the materials were more often silks or satins giving the feel that they were draped around the body.
There are some great images of Jackie Collins and Sarah Fawcett Majors in these oversized jackets, paired with skin-tight leggingsRead More
Well yes it’s already all over the high street .. it’s going to be maybe the one trend youre going to get fed up of by the end of Fall Aw18.
So if your going to go over the top like Tom Ford with traditional leopard print motifs in popping neon colours .. do it NOW. Before it becomes a fever !
Despite all the amazing bags on show during fashion month, for me, I think the most sought-afterbag had to be the Hold-All shopper totes this FW18. I’ve been on something of a mission to find the perfect bag over the past few years and while I’ve been searching, I’ve taken to carrying around a Hold-All shopper tote and it seems pretty close to perfect.Read More
Vivi Zubedi came onto my radar last year when she participated in her first fashion show at New York Fashion Week (NYFW) with IMG. Her collection became a spotlight, not only becuase it showcased MODEST FASHION but also Indonesian weavers and fabric artisans in the area of South Kalimantan.
Her collection for FW18 was called Urang Banua (Banjar people) and played with sportswear elements like baseball caps emellished with pins over the traditional hijabs and polka dots, velvets on traditional abbayas. There were trims on pockets that reminded me of Chanel jackets . My favourite pieces though had to be the velvet sweats, and the mysterious veils which reminded me of the Spanish Mantilla. I really look forward to seeing more from her as I love the way she mixes traditonal artesanal prints within her designs.
Vivi Zubedi also showcased her collection at LMFW this year that took place In London and her collection is available to buy at Hijup.com
