Stylist tip, The power of Accessorising!

Are pearls still fashionable? Do we even still care whether they are real or not? I remember years ago when one was seen wearing pearls, there used to be this talk about whether they real or not. The same talk we seem to have whenever we see someone carrying a Gucci bag or LV bag. Well, Miss Riri is certainly rocking the pearl on the red carpet. I love her lace hand gloves,which shows the relevance of my blog post few weeks ago on how hand gloves can add that special touch to your look. I'm loving the layering of different types of pearls. Accessorising still remains one of the powerful tool to bring your look alive. Rihanna is showing us another way to wear pearls in a Chic way.

 The highlight of the Cape Town Fashion Week was the new disigners.The quality was amazing from the colour use to the cutting of the garments.We can compete with the world and our designers deserve to be on big retail stores in our country.David Tlale did not dissapoint as he is known by breath taking designs.He used a lot gold on his collection.It shows that colour is more important in designs.I believe a lot of our designers know how to use colours and put the right combinations together.I hope in future we can see more of our designs in retail stores.Our goverment can change all of that if they can restrict foreign import clothing in our country and by that our retail stores will be forced to buy our local garments.

I have had a couple of requests for pictures in response to my last blog. I am having some trouble uploading them to this blog, so I have uploaded them to my profile page. They are pictures that I took when I delivered dye to the Black Coffee studio a few days after Jacques and Danica attended one of my lino block making classes.

I have supplied hand embellished textiles to Jacques since 2005 and am delighted that I have managed to seed a culture in our local indstry.

These finishes went all the way to Berlin where Jacques Wowed! the crowds with his innovative collection.

 Spring is around the corner and most of us are exciting about the thought of wearing less. The only way to wear less this spring girls is wearing sandals which are a very hot trend .You can go gladiator style or just plain simple old fashion sandals.There is also new design with the gladiator which is all about how high you can go. These are the styles I recommend which I find very Chic!The great thing about these is that you can pair them with a nice summer dress, pants, jeans,shorts  whichever way you prefer just remember to get your pedicure done preferebly with vibrant colours.
