 “Colors in, and black out, on Milan runway”

My first Google Alert was based on Fashion Week.

I am an avid Vogue and Harpers Bazaar reader, and fashion is always something which has interested me. Fashion Week is an event, which lasts approximately one week and allows fashion designers, brands or “houses” to display their latest collections.

The first article which i received based on my ‘Google Alert’, was titled ‘Colours in, and black out, on Milan runway’. The article was based on how the ‘fashion world’ has adopted colours and patterns into their spring and summer 2013 womenswear collections as Milan Fashion Week – and avoided blacks, which is typically seen as a wardrobe staple.

“Designers also are using a lot of detailing on outfits, from sequins, beads, colored discs and tassels.”

Dolce & Gabbana

The new spring and summer 2013 womenswear collection instead features monochromatic looks or deployed in geometric and floral patterns and prints, summer whites and seasonal pastels round out the palette. Designers, such as Pucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Biagiotti, Ferragamo, Marni and Missoni are using ruffles, folds and peplums, sheer fabrics, flowing cuts and accents like pleats and plisses, which gives the new seasons look a quiet elegance, grace and femininity.

This article interested me because I have a tendency to stick to one-tonned colours – particularly blacks. This article gave me somewhat of an inspiration to play with and try to incorporate different tones, patterns and styles into my own wardrobe.
