getting it on in gingham

Gingham is a really solid trend right now showing up in all the latest collections and in little snippets (or big ones) all over our favourite fashion “it” girls and bloggers, online publications and celebrity style queens. Whether you add a little or a lot, a gingham print can give your outfit a really nice dimension. A simple piece is oh so good, however this fabrication really suits being tied, twisted and volumised. It was literally born to be sculpted and creatively designed by it’s master.

ruffles, sparkles and mesh

Ruffles are so cool. They add volume, dimension and create a dense texture when layered. They are artistically blessed and visually stunning when draped or strategically placed. Although ruffles do add size, flattering silhouettes are achievable and give a really high fashion element. This of course is up to the designers and their pattern makers to lavish us with their ribbon-esque masterpieces! This top is really a piece of art…

layered

You know I love a layer.   Well here I go again, up to my old tricks again.   I found this fab little Talulah dress and doesn’t it look great all pimped out with the tied up jacket and gilet?   So this vest is another one from the Fifideluxe Archives.   It’s a Rare piece (not made anymore unfortunately) and being military green, it’s made it’s way onto the scene again after many years in hybernation.

I think everything is more exciting when you add layers.   Layer up baby.

puff pastry

There’s something so appealing about wearing volume of this size, the bigger the better in my books.   Proportions like these give you an enormous presence, a certain character and make a real statement.   You simply can’t deny it.

Dresses and skirts worn over pants were big about ten years ago (maybe more).   The look disappeared until recently and is making a slight come back.   I always loved this look, great for those days you want to hide and layers are always a good thing.

This coat reminds me of puff pastry… It’s such a light cotton piece with great height and big sleeves.   It’s quite malleable and easy to work as I have done with the double wrap belt and kind of puffed it out a bit.   I kind of feel like a gladiator about to take off, however.   Which isn’t a bad thing!

Oh, and excuse me while I delve into a pit of grey and navy at the moment, might need to add some more colour to my life this week.  That’s the plan!

Love you all xx

media showings 2015

We have recently taken our PR in house at Edwards Imports and we had the 2015 Media Showings in our Sydney showroom last week.   We presented a selection of our main brands J Brand, Equipment, Frame Denim, Hunky Dory, Rialto Jean Project, Joie Clothing, Free People, American Vintage, Odd Molly and Enza Costa.    Fashion editors, online media, stylists, influencers and a special blogger fitting afternoon had the showroom packed.

We nibbled on organic raw treats by Bondi eatery Earth to Table and flowers by Holly Hipwell from The Flower Drum.   Oh, and I definitely think the award goes to us for the best goodie bags.     American Vintage scented candle and garment bag, Equipment leather pouchette, J Brand knit turtle neck scarf all in a Joie Tote.     Yes please!

I hope you enjoy a few images from our showroom set up…
