Bula! My trip to Paradise

Bula! Last week i had the chance to escape reality and travel to what i can only describe as paradise. I have this trip planned to Fiji for a while now to attend a wedding and it was far more beautiful than i ever had suspected. I stayed at the Fiji resort and spa managed by the hilton and the rooms were impeccable. The service was incredibly friendly and i was greeted possibly every 15 minutes, my room was cleaned and tidied every morning and every night i would come home and my bed was ready for bed with a flower and chocolate to greet me. Buffet breakfast every morning was absolutely delicious (think of anything and everything you could possibly want for breakfast and it would have been there). The few days i was there consisted of too much eating and too many cocktails, as well as snorkelling, fishing, swimming, an incredibly funny experience at the mud baths and a very relaxing massage. My visit to Mala mala island was like a dream, crystal blue water like i have never seen before. With the most delicious food, happy hours, great experiences, stunning views, amazing weather and the friendliest people, I definately am planning to head back there.

Colour me happy

Seems like next season will be all about pops, or in some cases splatters of colours.
I am loving the shades of bright yellow, sunburst orange, red and hot pink used throughout the collections at RAFW. Usually i like to stick to monochromatic pallette but i am definately steering towards embracing hot colourful shades and my favourite is candy pink. If you are not quite brave enough to deck yourself and look like one big giant rainbow, why not try this colour blocking trend via your accessories.
Even the shoes at RAFW were one big giant parade of colourful shades.

New Gen RAFW

The New generation show 1 on the friday was my last show of RAFW, i was tired, hungry, had sore feet from my heels and really needed an energy boost, but as soon as this show started i stood up and took notice.

The designers in this category were Mok Theorem, Christopher Dobosz, Paper skye, Poppy Lissiman and Arj Selvam.

My absolute favourite's were Mok theorem and Paper skye. I could wear absoultely everything they sent down the runway.

Mok Theorem stuck to a palette of pastels, incorporating lace, ruching, cutouts, tailoring and sheer fabrics. The models had messy hair in an updo and a neon lip, the collection flowed like a collection of my dream outfits, one after the other.

Christopher Dobosz continued with the tailored look that was featured heavily throughout most of the collections at RAFW as well as using a pastel palette.

Paper skye was next of the rank sending down an array of sheer, free flowing looks consisting of maxi's, oversized tanks, pleating and lots of layering. Magaret Zhang of Shine by Three styled and modelled beautifully for the labels lookbook which were included in the gift bags. The wedges used throughout the show by ALDO shoes were stunning and am definately looking to invest in a pair.

Poppy Lissiman added a pop of bright colours with her collection to break up the show and models wore quirky oversized tassle earrings in an array of exuberant colours.

Finally Arj Selvam was the last to show in this category and he changed things up by having a young man play the cello on the runway whilst models walked down to the soothing sounds. His line was very tailored and included dapper and sophisticated menswear.

Cannes film festival fashion

The stars stepped out to impress at the Cannes film festival. Angelina, Alexa and Clemence all play it simply in nude ensembles paired with natural flowing locks while Natalia Vodianova vamped it up in a low back, halter gown and messy, tousled waves. Fan bingbing, the chinese superstar ispired by her roots and wore a long red gown, matching scarlet lips, porcelein skin and a high bun. My favourite look would have to be Lara Stone who shone in a figure hugging, long golden gown which fit like a glove. She paired it with limp straight hair and dark smokey eyes. Definately a Stone cold fox.
