NTF : December 13th 2010
Shop talk by Anna Raju Fab Finds Many of the embellishments wereshiny and/or light-reflective. The wordon the street: minimalism is on its way out. Although still present, the overall movement in fashion is embellished fabric, mixed colours, not-so -basic neutrals and areturntobling. Since this is the start of the embellishment trend, it is the perfect time to invest in afabulous piece of clothing. The last thing we want to purchase for 2011 is something basic and boring! It is time for some fun and playful fashions to enter our wardrobes. This season’sofferings areawash with fringe, feathers, sequins and all forms of unique adornments. Designers created florals out of fabric and leather as well as adorning frocks in sequins and even seashells. Roberto Cavalli was responsible for the seashells. The danger lies in overdoing it. Looking like aChristmas tree will not earnyou style points just for being on trend. Subtle features, or keeping the structuresimple, arekeys to earning admiring WOWs. So what do we buy this season? Start with adress that suits your curves with embellishments that arescaled to your figure. Small ornaments or jewels can make adress shine in agorgeous, yet subtle, way.
