Fashion Week - Bluegirl Spring Summer 2017

As the Fashion Week juggernaut rumbles on from New York to London, London to Milan it will continue in all its breath-taking glory to Paris. I have been watching the London Fashion Week live streams for a couple of years now, most notably, Burberry and Topshop. Topshop, I believe, was one of the first to do this with their Topshop Unique Collection and the new phenomenon that is "See Now "Buy Now" or in other words “From Runway to Retail”. If you missed the show you can catch up with the replay here. Use this link to shop the Catwalk Show

Absolutely loving Blugirl, the young Blumarine collection, see video below from Milan Fashion Week. There is definitely a South American vibe with models sashaying down the catwalk in Gaucho hats, a mix of macho and ultra-feminine mode.  Long cowboy style duster coats worn over chiffon flower-strewn dresses, gypsy style skirts, bold stripe trousers, mannish shirts and shorts.  A la mode off-the-shoulder tops - the look enhanced with shimmering drop earrings. 

About the Designer Anna Molinari, the designer and creative director of brand Blumarine, is also called "the queen of roses" because of her great love for these flowers.
