Is Fashion Turning to Craft

I’ve always seen fashion as a reflection of your sense of what you term beautiful.

All of the greatest fashion designers who have ever lived on the face of this earth created each piece of clothing with the inspiration that came from events that happened, people they’ve met or places they have been to. They used their talent to paint a picture of a man or woman with personality and character. Fashion designers spoke through the clothes they create.

But where does it all come from?

Everyday you wake up in the morning and mix and match your clothes together just to find the right ensemble to make you feel confident enough to step out of your house and start a new day. Who doesn’t want to look good, right?

But the more I studied the fashion industry and the dynamics behind it, I started to realize that there’s more depth to just putting items of clothing together.

Have you ever sat down to listen to what fashion commentators say about a fashion designer once their models have left the runway? They analyze every single piece, touching different aspects of it from the colour palette the designer used, the clever cutting, the genius behind their choice of fabric and even the mood the pieces vibrate.

There are even blogs nowadays where people give their own comments on the latest fashion. Whenever I make my Outfit Posts, I also drop my own perception of the outfit I chose to wear for the day. In a nutshell, everything that comes with your outfit has its meaning and defines your style.

Fashion stylists have a special place in the fashion industry. They know exactly how to put together the right items to create the desired effect. For example, there are some clothes that can either flatter your assets or hide them from view. There are also outfits that can make you look taller, shorter, fatter, or slimmer than you naturally are.

We would say that such people know the laws behind optical illusions, but they know their craft. They know the weight of the effect clothes can have on your style and the way people perceive you.

We’re slowly moving towards an age where nothing goes to chance or mere guessing anymore. There are angles, dimensions, rules, laws, perceptions, theories and history behind fashion now. People no longer observe fashion and let it just simply slide by. People study fashion and everything associated with it.

A stitch, cut or trimming can alter the balance of your style. If you choose the wrong outfit in the wrong season or you feel you could carry over an item of clothing, you need to think carefully about it. You need to be precise with fashion.

Does this mean that just because fashion is a craft no one else can get it right? Absolutely not! Fashion is also born from inspiration. You may experience a spark that will unleash your most magnificent style. There’s really no limit to how far you can go.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think fashion is a craft?

OOTD: Summer Time

I am loving the sunshine here in Cheshire. This week has been amazing, the weather has been beautifully warm and sunny, and I hope this means summer is here, but knowing the British weather, this lovely weather does not mean a thing. It could be wet and miserable for the rest of the month. I hear the weather is going to be miserable this weekend, and I am kind dreading it already. Although it is dead warm now, so a little bit of chill would definitely do me some good.

I took these outfit photos some days ago. The weather was great, and I was in the photo shoot mood. I ran a few errands rocking this outfit and I liked it. I am so into casual chic looks at the moment. I find them easy to style and very comfortable.

This dress is a new wardrobe addition and I am super in love with it. I think it is a fab summer piece. What do you think?

Everything else I have is an “oldie”. I am also very into flats these days too. I just can’t be bothered to wear heels at the moment. Life is way too busy; I need to move quickly! I am sure I would find my way back to heels soon, but for now, I am enjoying rocking my flats. Are you a flats lover too?

The Beauty of a Leather Bag

If you know me well enough, and you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for some time, you would know all about my love for stunning leather bags, and how I keep growing my leather bag collection. I have a thing for leather bags. I love the way they smell and look. I can never say no to a quality handbag.

I think every woman should have a few quality leather bags in her wardrobe. A stunning bag has the power to change any look, and take it from level 0 to a level 100, so they are definitely worth investing in.

If I had £100 to invest in my wardrobe, the first thing I would definitely think of getting is a new hand bag. I love my pieces, watches, shoes and stuff, but I have a special place in my heart for handbags. I have always had and always will.

And being a mini shopaholic, I have been on the lookout for some quality leather bags to grab this spring/summer season. In my pursuit, I came across Betty Hemmings some days ago, and I fallen in love with stunning their leather goods. For those who have not heard of this brand, it is a premier specialty retailer for Business, Travel and Luxury leather goods. It was founded in 1978, and offers a sophisticated range of luxuriously crafted briefcases, business accessories, luggage and leather goods.

They stock very quality handbags, I felt very at home on their website. There were so many bags I likes but these 2 below caught my eye instantly.
