What a whirlwind! Fashion week is done and I am beat! Day 4 and 5 of World Mastercard Fashion Week were filled with fun fashion from sumptuous furs, to brawny fisherman, to sex-kittenesque womenswear.
Here is my take on the last two days at the tents:

Farley Chatto‘s furs are not going to win any PETA awards, but man were they luxurious-looking going down that runway. The coloured fur was a bold touch and fur for nuptials was an interesting twist (fur that special day…get it ;)).
Think: New England fishing town…but really cool and attractive. I loved the rustic feel that managed to live alongside a sense of sophistication. A total highlight was the quilted leather pants that looked hot in all senses of the word.
Sporty outerwear is never going to blow my doors off, but I have to say that I loved the softer pieces that came out in the most delicious neutral tones for Fall/Winter. My favourite combo? Cozy greys mixed with lavender, which was utterly feminine.
Day 5 was the dress day for me at World Mastercard Fashion Week, and Narces kicked off the trend. Shimmery shifts, bandage-style cocktail dresses and loads of girly embellishments (lace, beading, sequins) made for a barrage of options for the young lady who “just has nothing to wear.” The short hemlines were abundant and the body-conscious silhouettes definitely indicated a veering towards a younger clientele.
Va-va-voom was all anyone could think of during this collection. Sheer cut-outs, high-waisted hot-pants and cinched blazers all oozed sex-appeal. I have to say that the finishing on these garments was beautiful and the pop of bright pink was a welcome addition to a typically darker season.
This show was totally up my personal alley. Boxy shoulders, flow-y but, assymetrical (short in front long in back) dresses and an utterly appealing colour palette made for a bunch of stuff that was both original and wearable…The black finale dress (pictured first, from left to right) had my name written all over it…figuratively, of course.
Alright, so there you have it.
World Mastercard Fashion Week is done and to be honest so am I (fighting a cold at the moment!).
Tomorrow on Virgin Radio I will be writing up all the fun style seen off the runway so be sure to check it out!
