The heat is slowly making it’s way at the moment. It’s been that frustrating in-between weather when it’s hot in the sun but cold in the shade – I’ve found shawls to be a perfect solution to this. I particularly love vintage crochet shawls as I’m a huge fan of dressing of grandma chic, but more simple shawls will also do the trick.
It was all the pretty things at Vietnamese designer Phuong My‘s show last week. A live vocalist was singing renditions of classics by the likes of Frank Sinatra on the sleek, black runway that was scattered with rose petals in varied shades of pink and red. Phuong My‘s strengths are luxurious fabrics, feminine silhouettes and excellent craftsmanship. By this point I had so far attended the Dilettante and Jaime Lee shows, so I really loved seeing how different the three were with each show being completely different and unique.
