Spring 2011:Trend Report

Sheer Bliss: Designer Played peekaboo this spring by layering transparent separates over solid underpinnings, with varying levels of modesty. 

Givenchy spring 2011

Eastern Front: Traditional Eastern influences abounded this spring. Runways from Haider Ackermann to Dries Van Noten to Reed Krakoff showed elongated tunics and vests paired with loose cropped pants, Chinese and Japanese prints, and kimono-style wrapping.

Building Blocks: Patterns took a cue from Rubik's Cube this season, with strong strokes of bubble-gum brights and rich jewel tones creating bold color blocking on shifts, dresses and tunics. 

Missoni spring 2011

That '70s show: Retro bohemian staples like peasant blouses, floor-grazing skirts, and wide-leg trousers reminiscent of Ali McGraw in love story carried collections from Etro to Salvatore Ferragomo. This is the new Bohemia: cleaner, crisper, and much sleeker than its flower-child predecessors.

Down to business:Modern, monochromatic takes on men's suiting were very visible this season, but classic proportions were abandoned in favor of futuristic cuts at Gareth Pugh, dress suits at Margiela, and fluid satin shapes at Bottega Veneta.

Bottega Veneta spring 2011

Lace Race: Lace was everywhere, but the message was more daring than "dolly". Full-body lace is sophisticated, feminine silhouettes is fresher than anything you'd find in Grandma's trousseau.

Dolce & Gabbana spring 2011

Punk'd: Tomboy toughness was translated across a very broad spectrum: Mascline met feminine at Balenciaga, while Balmain got a little grittier and more deconstructed.

Jean Paul Gaultier spring 2011

Into the wild: Designers indulged their primal instincts far beyond fall's basic leopard prints. Animal shapes, jungle themes, and feathered skirts proved that fashion's animal magnetism is still going strong.

Altuzarra spring 2011

Prints charming: Houses from Christian Dior to Miu Miu engaged in pattern play for spring. These hypnotic geometries and water color blooms would look great as wallpaper-but they're anything but wallflowers. 

Louis Vuitton spring 2011

Blue jean baby: Chambray, denim's lighter cousin had a strong showing on spring runways. Designers from Celine to Thakoon showed this relaxed, true-blue fabric, usually reserved for California cool girls, in tailored suits, dresses, or scrublike silhouettes.

Brands War

Last week, I was at saddar bazar for winter shopping. I had found different variety of winter clothing. Luxurious type of fabric like velvet and satin is yet again back in vogue in a different way.Mostly velvet is on edging of outfit not all over.

Gul Ahmed vs Warda

Gul ahmed is the daddy of local market plus its expensive because their products are much practical plus creative.

Warda is not bad at all.Their prints are creative but according to my observation, Warda fails to consider the possibility of misprinting of there finished product but still ladies love to have a warda's prints for each season thats more stupid. 

Idea by Gul Ahmed is going to lunch its own velvet apparel collection which is more expensive and if you are buying Chinese made velvet from a local store.The price would be 3000 Rs to 5000 Rs only. So I suggest you the local store's velvet so do not waste your money. Just go there and grab any colored velvet but you can waste your time on your own creative finished product which is good.

Now I am going to give you a complete idea how to design a nice and trendy outfit which is not expensive.

You need:

  • Velvet fabric in purple color: two yards are enough.
  • White French chiffon for shirt and duppatta: 5 to 6 yards.
  • 80 grams China silk in white color  for trouser.
  • Professional tailor.
  • Professional dyer.

Get dyed the chiffon and silk fabric in black color from dyer.Order the tailor by giving dyed silk and chiffon plus velvet.

Long shirts are in fashion so I will prefer long shirt and wide leg trouser.

Tell your tailor that velvet is going to be stitch on edging of shirt's sleeves, neckline and duppatta's edging.

For neckline I will prefer any trendy neckline design.

You can also accessorize your outfit with a nice and decent brooch clip.

Hope your entire look will look more classy and decent.
