Fashion Weeks around the world

Paris Fashion Week
The attendees at the Paris Fashion Week had to stand to witness Balenciaga‘s boxy silk jackets in sci-fi inspired designs, after benches were removed. A little too much to bear for the glitterati present for the show! Elsewhere, some really adorable and ready-to-wear collections from designers Anthony Vaccarello, Fatima Lopes and Corrado de Biase enchanted the hungry audience at the 2011 Paris Fashion Week. The new spring/summer 2012 collections of Carven, Barbara Bui, Ann Demeulemeester, Rick Owens, Manish Arora, Balmain and Nina Ricci have also received great response from their audiences.

Milan Fashion Week
Fasion designers from Milan are reported to be investing zealously in gold. Perhaps it is not coincidental that the era most frequently evoked during Milan fashion week was the Roaring ’20s, seen through its sequined and beaded drop-waisted flapper dresses. The carefree, fun decade ended with the devastating 1929 stock market crash!

Mexico Fashion Week
The creations from the new collection of the Mexican designer Macario Jimenez during the Mexico Fashion Week being held in the in Mexico City have been appreciated all round.

Pittsburgh Fashion Week
The crowds at the Pittsburgh Fashion Week have been vowed by the cosmopolitan flair at display! Pittsburgh Fashion Week stood up to its big city promises that included bright lights and lots of color and vigor all around! The Monday opening night extravaganza saw  a standing-room-only crowd of 450-plus to witness the new Doncaster fashions collection.

Trends in Women’s Handbags

The trends in the women’s handbags at the recently held Jakarta Fashion Week show fresh ideas and innovativeness. These artistic handbags were quite a change from the simple leather handbags that designers in New York, Paris and Milan showcased for spring 2011.

The handbags shown during Jakarta Fashion Week are modern fashion fused with Indonesian tradition. The handbag collections were either designed to blend into the background of intricately designed material, or made to be a centerpiece of art on a woman’s arm.

You can check out a comprehensive catalog on handbags for women to give your wardrobe a makeover this festive season.

Summer Fashion for Women

Summer is the time when women must beat the heat by wearing a fashionable Linen Vest to add to their fashion quotient. Summer vests for women are a big hit because of their ease of use and the fact that they allow the body to breathe, naturally.

So, if you find yourself being bogged down by the heat, head over to the online store that offers an exciting range of vests for women and order a couple of them suiting your style!

Best of luck!
