Designer love!

In an earlier post 'What's new?' I mentioned that the 50's/60s trend seems to be re-emerging, as seen on the Prada fall 2010/11 catwalk show. Well, I am really excited to say that this trend seems to be filtering into the high street stores sooner than expected. For those of us that do not have the funds to purchase designer trends, thankfully most of the high street stores have picked up on this trend. I've already bookmarked pages online, especially at ASOS Curve a few 60's inspired dresses I've got my beady eye on! So whats new? Well for those of you that are inspired by the 50's/60's, have a look at the Louis Vuitton 2010/11 fall catwalk show. WOW, it blew me away! I love, love, love Louis Vuitton. Not only obviously for their fantastic handbags, accessories etc, but this show was soo obviously inspired by the 50s Hollywood movie stars in their beautiful full skirted dresses. LV had beautiful dresses in a mixture of prints and plain luxurious fabrics. It reminded me of the type of dresses my mum used to wear in her younger years growing up in the 1950s - full skirted dresses with tight bodices and accessorised with long elbow gloves, bags and her hair tied into tight pony tails. Oh how I wish she had kept all those dresses! LV did this of course with a modern edge. Full skirts were shown in leather as well! But hey, don't let me go on about it! Here's a video of the catwalk show. Enjoy and let me have your comments on this.
