Recently I had the pleasure of attending Chadstone Spring Summer 2016 launch.
The beautiful European-inspired conservatory located inside Chadstone was stunning, we were seated inside the floral jungle themed runway and treated to brunch. I couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the decor was, everything was perfect.
Opening the runway was a live violinist which set the tone, hypnotic strings played whilst models glided around in the latest spring summer trends in sync around us.
Check out the latest trends at Chadstone or online.
Last week, Rubi Shoes opened its brand-new Melbourne Central Store. The wide, spacious shoe store has a large selection of styles to choose from for any occasion.
Bloggers celebrated the launch with a mini breakfast and trend forecast chat. Currently on trend is the sneaker redone in a 90s style, with double-soles and slip-on variations in rose gold and spring florals. Blush tones are also making their way to our streets, along with boho, Cuban/Moroccon inspired flats.
After the breakfast we were able to choose a pair of shoes and then treated to a street style photo-shoot with our new kicks! I chose these metallic sandals.
Rubi Shoes are always on trend, making it easy to find a pair of shoes to compliment any outfit, whether it’s going out for a special occasion, or just wearing them around on your casual days.
Thanks for having me Rubi Shoes!
Recently I had the pleasure of attending Melbourne’s WGSN summit. They do extensive research on what’s happening around the globe culturally and economically and how everything and anything going on in the world affects the outcome of fashion trends.
Forecasting of trends, colour palettes, designs, and fabrics that will be in style for the coming of two years
It’s very insightful and a lot of big brands, designers, buyers and stylists attend the summit to learn about what’s the next big thing in fashion, learning what will sell and what trends will be popular in our Australian culture.
So what are the latest trends we’ll be see hitting the streets next year or two?
I can tell you that we’ll see a love affair with street punk style, mixing and matching with high-end brands.
Day to night dressing, with luxe fabrics and a layered approach to styling (which we already have to trickle throughout street style outfits), will also make an appearance.
Key colours to keep in mind are jewel tones and luxe colours.
We’ll see black caviar and a rich dark gothic romance trend.
Nude colours such as frappe, milky tones, and coconut white will be the queens of neutral tones of the season.
Fur and faux fur will be an added detail, for example as trim on jackets. That along with teddy bear jackets and sophisticated suede are making the cooler months look more appealing already.
We should also see a fresh approach to the classic biker jacket with wearers adding different fabrications and customisation.
There is also a big shift for trousers with a wide leg coming after an increase of 29% on the runway .
One last thing that caught my attention was Ad blocking- the younger generation blurring out brands online, and the nostalgia era. They’ve discovered they’re into vinyl records and brought back the Walkman, not an old design but a new Walkman that can be purchased for the music lovers who miss that sound quality. This return to old school will also affect popular styles.
Thanks for having me WGSN! xxx
