Classroom Rules

Zemaye’s Take: Bandwagon imitative fashion babble talk.

Examples:

PAIR as a clunky verb – Play with texture by PAIRING a velvet skirt with a silk top.

STUN as a verb but oddly without an object – Ada STUNNED in a red dress

Clothes (often poorly-tailored) referred to as PIECES to justify inflated prices – she wore a piece from the Spring/Summer collection

Pretentious jargon that nobody understands – Ada’s new Spring/Summer resort collection.

Biko what is ‘resort’?

And what if we created our own language and let oyibo copy us? What of Harmattan collection? Rainy/Dry collection? Early/Late collection?

Solution: The best language is simple, sincere, and should actually make sense. Be original. Be real.

Trends To Watch Spring/Summer 2015

Featured Image

The fashion world is ever so obsessed with the future; we are constantly searching for the next new trend. Unlike the past, when we would wait for months after the shows before the trends hit the stores, thanks to the media and technology we do not need to wait several months after fashion shows to get the ‘now look’.  But of course if you want that particular dress from Altuzarra and Alexander Wang, you probably need to patiently wait until next season when they would be available. For those of us with less than Kim Kardashian levels of income, this is a guide on trends from the spring shows you can easily incorporate into your wardrobe straightaway.

While some of the trends are throwbacks from the past seasons, à la the crop tops and the sports inspired looks, others are old favorites that have been given a breath of freshness.  We hope come next Spring, these styles would be among the rage, here are the top trends on our radar from the Spring/Summer 2015 shows.
