2013 was the year that Chainmail died… well when creative director Julien Dossena did it, he brought it back. With asymmetrical cuts, off the shoulders, mid-lengths and draped material, Dossena breathed new life into this once old fad. The whole collection had a cohesive fun yet sophisticated look running throughout.
With dark patterns and prints, this collection has quickly become one that cannot be forgotten. The striking shapes and animal prints resemble that of a warrior woman. This whole collection draws from the beautiful strength of women and I have to say it is one of my favourite Balmain Collections to date.
Mugler maintained his trademark Angel-Bottle Star shape throughout his various designs.
This collection deserves the name Poetry In Motion. The beautifully exquisite dark romantisist theme brings the whole collection together making it wearable for the highstreet but still the brilliant and beautiful couture vibe that we all know and Love from Elie Saab.
Shawn Mendes always looks cool on the red carpet. This is not the best I have seen him look but I think that they outfit suits his relaxed personality. And besides, he has a whole music career ahead of him to experiment with different shades and textures. Shawn always wears darker colours well, I would just like to see him branch out a bit more.
I was trawling through different fashion websites when I came across this article in Harper’s Bazaar UK – http://www.harpersbazaar.co.uk/christmas/news/g37307/christmas-jumpers-for-women-2016/ and I was inspired by a few of them so much that I had to write something.
Let’s start with Ladies’ Christmas Fashion:
I love the embellishment on this Jumper. This could be worn with pretty much anything! All of the Jumpers could be worn with almost anything. I would style this Caable-knit jumper with Pink Tailored Cigarette trousers, A Leopard Print Coat and Navy Boot from Topshop.

When London Opened, it opened with an explosion of creativity. I will not lie, not everything was beautiful, unique or artistic in my eyes but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Please accept my opinions for what they are opinions and please feel free to share your thoughts below as well.
On day one, nothing really grabbed my attention. The designs were nice and there is no denying that, it just wasn’t something that interested me even though I appreciate the time, effort and technique that went into creating these designs.
Day two, for me, is when it all began to get interesting. My favourite designers were Julien Macdonald, Versus Versace and Gareth Pugh. Some of their designs will be featuring later on in my Victoryforu Picks segment.
Day three! The brilliant design of the runway for Anya Hindmarsh’s show was inspired. Topshop Unique has truly done it again creating something that is wearable and still very runway appropriate. Definitely my favourite day.
Day four had some amazing designers. Huishan Zhang, Burberry and Sophia Webster. I loved the shoes so much!
And finally day five, A brilliant way to end a great fashion week.
I love these looks. Especially the print, it looks great anywhere. I wonder if it would still look great as trousers or a jacket? #pattern #VictoryforuFashion #mystyleideas #womenstyle #VictoryforuInspiration #GodLovesYou #Victorious #LoveGod #LoveLife #LoveStyle #LoveFashion #styleblog #Fashionblogger #BeautifulWomen #Victoryforu #VictoriousEveryday
