Fashion Tarts | SS14 Trends

There’s nothing like new arrivals being strutted on the widows of shops, talk about getting us all worked up! 

It’s always very tempting to rush into stores and buy all the new looks they have their mannequins decorated with , but to ensure you don’t end up frittering away funds,  

fashion tarts’ has done some window shopping on your behalf.

Culottes are the trouser shape of the season and look great worn with high heel pumps and a crisp white shirt

Sheer was used by many designers this season. Wear with a sweatshirt on cooler days or a boxy crop top for summer.

The pleated skirt was everywhere on the SS14 catwalks and this M&S skirt is perfect buy for this trend!

Who can forget Burberry’s candy striped show finale under falling rose petals back in September? We are certain they will in no doubt be much imitated on the high street.

Cinched waists, diaphanous skirts, heavily tiered ball gowns, and billows upon billows of tulle mesmerized the guests at Christian Dior’s summer 2012 couture show. Models dressed in feminine silhouettes graced the runway with simple an subtle makeup and hair.

Head of creative direction for the fashion house , Bill Gaytten, demonstrated that pretty and feminine has a place in the world of haute couture and looking at these designs, I must agree!

YOUNG TALENTS: Michael Van Der Ham SS2012

The 26 years old is a Dutch fashion designer, who studied fashion at Central Saint MartinsLondon & managed to have internships at Sophia Kokosalaki and Alexander McQueen.

Van der Ham’s SS2012 collection was inspired by “Andy Warhol‘sdresses which he designed in the 70s using couture dresses by significant designers as a project for an exhibition curated by Diane Vreeland, the collection was a great success due to its unique and out standing idea although it was mainly in blacks and grays. His new collection for Summer/Spring 2012 took place at London Fashion week and was absolutely one of the best shows. The collection was full of colors, prints and texture all combined together to create a very wearable collage, his cuts are beautiful and it compliments women’s body and curves, his accessories and shoes are no exception they had the same concept of collage which we can call it a Van der Ham’s trademark…
