Paris Couture Week

Main_medium

Couture week just wrapped up in Paris, and boy it was not a disappointment. I love looking at couture garments on the runway, because they are so excessive and over the top. It is so amazing how much detail and beautiful construction goes into these styles, and how only very few women can actually afford to wear them (maybe one day I will). I have narrowed down some of my favorite looks from Paris couture week, check them out for some great inspiration.

Style Guide

I love the One Shoulder Maxi and Flower Dress from our recent Honeymooners pattern collection. I vision these dresses to be worn at a beach resort, with the fabric gusting in the summer wind…wow I wish that could me right now! To indulge my fantasy I created this style guide for these dresses, and how I would wear them.

Just coming into April we are starting to think about spring fashion. This Halter Neck Dress has a gathered bustier bodice and full, swinging bell skirt is reminiscent of film stars of the 50s’. It would make a perfect spring/summer dress for 2013. But how would you wear it? We want to know!

Pantone named emerald the color of 2013. We could not be more thrilled! It is a lovely color and was seen on many recent fashion runways. Pantone describes emerald as “Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.” See below for some great emerald designer looks, as well as some emerald burda patterns and member projects!

I recently attended a press preview of the Ivy Style exhibit at The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (MFIT). The collection was cleverly curated as if you were on set at an Ivy League university campus (a grass-covered quad, a chemistry classroom, a dorm room) in a sea of Ralph Lauren, Jeffrey Banks, and Brooks Brothers classics.
