Rather than walking down the runway, models such as Jourdan Dunn and Lindsey Wixon posed in editorial photos that were displayed as an art exhibition for Zac Posen’s AW17 collection.
The clothing was romantic with hues of rose red and black complimenting each other whilst appealing to the masses.
Bare shoulders, a tight waistline and an exaggerated skirt were key elements to the elegant silhouette Zac Posen is known for and were present themes in the collection.
Photographed against white shabby walls, the designs appeared twice as elegant in contrast. Posing softly, the models bought attention to the gowns simultaneously creating a strong image.
This collection was elegant in both its presentation and design, it is sure to be popular among red carpets goers.
Who can say that they’ve enjoyed a fine meal and a glass of wine whilst spectating a fashion show? Well, if you’ve watched a Facebook Live stream of one then maybe, but whilst attending the runway show? I think not. Cinq à Sept’s AW17 collection commenced in a restaurant environment with huge windows revealing the snowy landscape of New York – the setting definitely reflected the clothing’s general theme of comfort and warmth.
Ruffles were a dominant feature on blouses and dresses which were often accompanying each other to create layering. Denim made key appearances in the form of a tight mini dress and a three-piece suit which was covered in delicately embroidered florals. There was also a few twists on the current fishnet tights trend: instead of seeing them with jeans and a crop top, they gave softly feminine dresses an edge. A thick pair of grey socks were also placed on top of them with black heels to complete the look.
Cinq à Sept created a collection that can be worn by the modern woman in and out of the workplace.
After 12 loyal years of creating masterpieces for super fashion house Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci recently announced his departure.
Instagram went into meltdown after Riccardo posted a photo to confirm his exit: colleagues such as Mert Alas (Mert & Marcus), Naomi Campbell and Natasha Poly flooded the photo app with memories. The industry mourns the designer’s leave but buzzes for the awaited news of where his career will take him next, with many guesses towards Versace.
To celebrate the hard work and beauty Riccardo Tisci has created in his twelve years at Givenchy, here we follow his journey from beginning to end and display the best looks from virtually every show he’s put on for the brand…

Oscar Wilde, a legendary writer in the fields of literature, plays and academia. Famed for his passion for Aestheticism, Wilde was in love with all things art and beauty. This is particularly a reoccurring theme in the novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, a classic Molicia is currently reading. As well as sharing a passion for all things bright and beautiful (to include fashion), I have instantly fallen in love with the way the author writes about his views and affections through the novel.
In addition to a #WiseWordWednesday post to Michelle Obama, here are some Oscar Wilde quotes that stir the mind have resignated deeply with people all over the world.

All women are queens, but could you imagine a world where every one of you was designated a custom-made gown and crown to materialise your royal status? Guo Pei’s SS17 Couture collection creates this fantastical regal supremity.
Virtually every noble lady elegantly ruled the runway in their gold-dripped dresses that were encrusted in jewel embellishments. The majority of the garments draped to the floor which created a graceful illusion of flotation. Water colours, pale pinks and purples created a resemblance to the fine artworks and luxurious architecture that would be seen in a palace.
Guo Pei’s SS17 Couture collection blurs the lines between reality and fantasy, which is what high fashion is truly adored for.
Imagine watching a runway show where the models are walking in exclusive Couture gowns and then you notice that they are wearing tan-coloured sandals with them. This is what occurred at Valentino’s SS17 Couture show. You would think pairing a basic-looking flat shoe would subtract from the beauty of the gowns, right? Wrong. With the straight silhouette we saw demonstrated, the sandals created an illusion as though the models were floating in their dresses. Not in a paranormal way either, but graceful and romantic. Every garment was floor-lengthed to enhance this and endless amounts of chiffon concluded.
As well as hovering ensembles, Valentino offered a colour palette that resembled a bouquet of roses: dusty pink, pure white and deep red. Even one of the gowns was covered in the passionate flower.
In the midst of Couture Week when we are bombarded with images of extravagance and excessive crystal embellishments, Valentino romanticises a softer appearance. When other designer gowns command attention, Valentino’s simply whisper, “I’m here.”
