A small selection from the Bora Aksu AW16 catwalk show that I got to attend at London Fashion Week. I loved the colour palette, from rich reds and plums to fairy soft pinks. The dramatic surrounds of the church played it’s perfect role in this gothic/victorian inspired collection. The glossy checker board flooring was effective in bringing each piece to life.Although the collection had an influence from the victorian era it was still very modern. With high necks, sheer fabrics, lacy collars and dropped waists. Not to be taken too seriously (the bonnets) but to be inspired by. To take the pieces you love and to work them into your look your way.
I always love his designs. So much thought put into every piece. It’s always an inspiration seeing these catwalk shows. It’s not to create the exact looks but to be inspired – to find a new way when you dress. Taking note of new season colour trends -colour mixing and for putting pieces together in different ways is what it’s about.
The intricate and delicate finishing makes every piece special. There’s always a conflict within the collection with feminine floaty pieces versus a strong bold edge. Ruffles, fur,tailored jackets, laced up boots and so much more… Love love love as always Bora Aksu xx Dawn
I was the lady in red today. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. What a perfect way to spend it too in this gorgeous red dress. My very first red dress that is. Not usually a colour I indulge in, but I’ve been in love with this for quite some time now.You might of seen me wearing the same dress in white a few weeks ago.So it’s quite obvious I have a definite dress crush. The weather has been so good lately. It makes life so much easier and nicer when the sun is shining. Everything becomes less hassle. From the school run to footie training, nothing seems to much trouble.
I wore the dress with gold, one of my favourite colours to add with a strong colour like red or black. It seems to compliment it nicely and I kept the sandals flat for my daytime look.
It feels like ages since I blogged last and I guess it has been in comparison to when I was blogging several times a week. I needed to take some time out and concentrate on other aspects of my life. My son started high school this september and my little girl proper big school too. Big changes and some big tears…all mine I gotta add. Big mummy tears having to let go.. not too much-just a little. Anyway back to fashion and clothes and all things bloggy. I love this maxi dress. Bought it a few weeks from topshop. I’m definitely enjoying wearing skirts this season.. I’ve started adding a few to my wardrobe. This dress is especially one I like. Sheer panels and splits. Great for holidays. I’ve enjoyed wearing it here in Dubai. Perfect for strolling around the malls and dinners out. It’s been wonderful enjoying the late sun. If you been following me on here you’ll know that I have a fear of anything winter …yucky wet weather is a no no for me. Hope you’re all having a wonderful week..see you back here soon !!!! Dawn xx
It’s so good to just hang out in shorts and anything else skimpy enough to wear on these hot days. The airiest attire only need to be hanging in the wardrobe at this moment in time. I just love it when the top drawer becomes prioritised with all thats summer. Bikinis, shorts and such. Saturday was the longest day of the year already!! I could chase these sun filled days around the world and never have a winter… I’m sunshine girl !!!
