Trend Focus: Romance

This year designers fell in love with sheer fabrics, soft pastels, ruffles and all things feminine. Fashion is definately having a romantic moment this summer…so go on, work this season’s prettiest look and create your own fairy tale (Knight in shining armour optional.)

  1. hey can somebody tell me where i can find any fashion reports/ reviews by professionals on the show? because i wasn’t there and we have to research into who’s designs were on the catwalk, what else they advertise, who their audience are and if our own designs compare the same or differently and how, etc.
    any tips would be very helpful thanks =)
