Inspiration Throwback

Posted on: September 8, 2007

When it comes to style, Paris fashion seems to be an inspiration for a number of designers. This season is no exception. Between Paris-based Catherine Malandrino and London-based Alice Temperley, both of whom showed in New York, there was attention given to overtly feminine silhouettes (Malandrino) and a hearkening to an era gone by (Temperley). Temperley’s Spring collection recalls the “Paris, Je t’aime” editorial spread in Vogue‘s recent fall issue, although Temperley’s 1920s version is more beach-like, perhaps Saint-Tropez in 1925. Malandrino’s collection, on the other hand, pushed ruffles and pleats, and bold hues.

la fashionista has had an interest in fashion and style since childhood when she first saw her mother dress in the various fashion of the 80s. Her mother was also a great seamstress, which was a definite influence on la fashionista's foray into fashion. Sadly, her mother's sewing talent did not get passed on to la fashionista.

But that doesn't mean that she doesn't still love talking about fashion. Because she does!
