Harmonie's Look on Fashion

Posts Tagged ‘Fashion show

Last week was the winter edition of The Brandery, a professional trade show for urban brands based in Barcelona. During three days, the 147 brands featured were presenting their new collections for A/W 2011-12.

Recinto de Montjuïc, Palacio 8

Final for American Vintage catwalk.

One of the most awaited show, was the international launch of Custo Line, the new more affordable line from Custo Barcelona. This line keeps the overall aesthetics of Custo Barcelona while offering colorful looks for a younger target segment.

This collection is the first from Custo to ever include jeans. But not your regular pair of jeans. At Custo, jeans are printed or dyed with specific treatments to ensure a special effect. The collection also focus on miniskirts, leggings and printed loose-fitting tee-shirts.

Once again, flashy colors are a key point in the collection but the new palette also includes some soft neutral tones. Main materials are cotton, polyester and viscose.

If you want to see more, watch the video of the show.

How do you like this new line? Would you wear it?

I will be back soon with other interesting brands! Stay tuned!

Yesterday evening I was really inspired and created a new pair of earrings.

The weather was cold (yes, it happens in Barcelona too) and I enjoyed creating those while drinking a cup of tea!

Gathering material…

Composing and glueing…

Final result!

I must say I love the girly Marie Antoinette look! Perfect for all the spring nude outfits, right?

Apart from that, I am planning my visit at The Brandery. I am really excited to see the Catwalk of Custo Line as The Brandery will forcast the international launch of Custo Barcelona‘s second line! Conferences look very appealing too with subjects like “Fashion Brands and Social Media“, “A/W 2011/2012 Trends” by WGSN Spain and Portugal, “Social Shopping” by the general manager of Privalia Spain (the online private sale website competing with venteprivee or ruelala)…

Stay tuned! I will be posting about The Brandery really soon!

Part of Boston Fashion Week 2010 was yesterday’s event The Launch. Five emerging designers were presenting their line to professionals and curious fashion lovers.  Overexcited ambiance backstage but an overall success and pleasure of the eyes!

Enjoy!

My friend Victoria Dominguez Bagu was presenting her collection as well. I was too busy dressing the models to have any backstage pictures so I wanted you to see the pictures from her photo shoot by Kevin Day.

Creativity and style were definitely overwhelming during this afternoon. Special thanks to the designers, models and organizing staff for making Boston Fashion Week happen!
