Reunion with Aphrodite

Draping, pleats and folds of Venetian inspiration in the new season.
The long, steamy Greco-Roman-inspired gowns are, without doubt, a classic red carpet events. We are not surprised to see Angelina Jolie, Sienna Miller or Megan Fox with goddess dresses inspired by ancient Greece. Moreover, the rise of the ridge coincides with a summer marked by the omnipresence of the influential designer Madeleine Vionnet (1876-1975). The museum of Les Arts Decoratifs in Paris plays host to an exhibition now that the large contribution of the French fashion designer who now carry. Highly recommended, yes.

But art transcends the fold this season to the next series of garments that have nothing to do with cokctail long dresses, which will use only rarely. For example, the proposed new Balenciaga care is based on silk drapery key miniskirts applied to cake-shaped shell and pants Johdpur Santiago. This is a 360 degree turn for a designer who has focused on the futuristic elements during the past collections. The design duo Viktor & Rolf also joined this trend, combining pasty white with earthy tones and architectural drapery. The result is disturbing and radically different doses of glitter and metallic dress eighties style we've seen in other designers.

Ann Demeulemeester jacket commitment pattern models seemingly carefree, Valentino applies its extensive knowledge of this technique to cherry leather handbags with roses as a flower and uses Christian Dior yellow brocade dress in tight wrap.

Doo.Ri, Yigal Azrouel, Oscar de la Renta ... we show you the new codes in a style that will accompany you throughout the winter.

Draping, folds and Greco-Roman style complex networks reappear in the new winter collections. X Balenciaga silhouette strokes by adjusting the waist and focusing the entire volume in the miniskirt and a pronounced shoulder sweater.

I start writing a blog about my life with my eating disorder and my addiction to fashion.
I really need readers, because in my real life I had no listeners. Alone, yes I
was always alone with my thoughts, in those days I didn't care about it. Untill I discovered the blogs and

learnt how good it can feel to have readers. Readers, which share the same intress and have the same

feelings after a shitty snack attack.

Plz, visit me:
