The time has come...

...for the next 6 weeks or so it's all about the fashion darling! So here are the 4 most important fashion week dates for ya'll to put in your diary-
Paris- 21st Jan till 28th Jan
New York- 11th Feb till 18th Feb
London- 19th Feb till 24th Feb
Milan- 24th Feb till 3rd Mar

I had the chance to go to Berlin fashion week last season (I did a whole blog about it and Berlin in general which you can check here) and although there were some pretty atrocious designs on show, I did get to see some extremely talented designers as well. Berlin is such an innovative city when it comes to politics, culture, art and music but they fall well behind when it comes to fashion. You kinda get the feeling that they just don't care which is fair enough, there are plenty more important things to worry about, but when they are trying to contend with the likes of Paris and London well I'm afraid they're gonna have to step their game up! It generally all feels a bit behind and done before, never the less there are still some very talented designers out there, so I'm going to kick off this post with some of the best from Berlin fashion week (which ran from Jan 20th till Jan 24th). 

Beautiful knitwear!

Some crazy 'ish right there!

Now kiddies we're gonna move onto the more exciting stuff, yes yes PARIS! So it's all kicked off this week, each day we will be bringing you the best of the collections so you don't have to bother looking at every single show, we'll do it for ya!
First up is Chanel Spring 2010 Couture, designed Karl Lagerfeld, and as usual it's all a bit too shiny, girly, over the top and feminine for me, but I do LOVE the hair style's and as you can see Ice Cream hair is poppin up again! 


Next up we have Dior Spring 2010 Couture, designed by John Galliano. Dior always kills it for me on the couture front, even thought it's really shiny and over the top which I just said is the reason I'm never really feeling the Chanel collections, with Dior it has a different feel. It's more empowering, dramatic and beautiful all the ingredients that make iconic couture. I would LOVE to have a reason to wear a dress so god damn fabulous! (P.S. notice more colored hair).


Next up, Givenchy Spring 2010 Couture designed by Riccardo Tisci. There was a slightly darker theme running through the Givenchy collection with lots of midnight blues, forest greens and black of course, offset against some lovely neutral shades. There were a lot of textures and embellishment creating a sophisticated and luxurious collection, but then what else do we expect from Givenchy.



After a ten year absence from the runway, Josephus Thimister returned with a rather minimal collection inspired by a photograph of Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich, Emperor Nicholas II's murdered 13-year-old son, who was routinely dressed in uniform as a boy. Interestingly he chose to the showcase his Autumn/Winter 2010 haute couture collection whilst other designers were showing Spring/Summer 2010. Personally I'm feeling the menswear in this collection a lot more than the womens. 

Mr Armani is always on point when it comes to designing show stopping red carpet dresses, and this season was no exception. Some beautiful bead and sequin work in his Armani Prive Spring 2010 Couture collection and as always some of the best LBD's on the catwalk. Inspired by the moon, this collection is a beautiful midnight dream.
Well I don't know about you but I feel like putting on a face full of make-up, piling my hair up into a movie starlet inspired style, getting my sparkliest dress outa the wardrobe and going to a ball like the one at the end of Meet Me In St. Louis (if you haven't seen that film get it now!) but I'll prob settle for my fave jeans, air max and baggy jumper for this evenings outing :( never mind, one day!
