My very first blog post was about the dark floral trend from SS2015. I was inspired to write about this topic after reading about the acquisition of this painting entitled Wisdom of the Universe by Christi Belcourt at the AGO in Toronto. I took this photo of it when I was visiting during the holidays.
It’s now been a few months and many blog posts later but florals are still on my mind as we approach Spring 2016.
The shoes in the feature image I purchased at DSW over the holidays and thought they would be great for Spring and will add visual interest and colour to almost any outfit from jeans to skirts. These shoes reminded me of the Dolce & Gabana esthetic. Bright colours and flowers like this photo.
Here are 3 floral looks from Spring 2016 that really caught my attention. Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen and Erdem both showed romantic floral maxi dresses. I love how free and flowing these dresses are.
This pantsuit from Escada is bright and unexpected. The great thing is you could wear the pieces separately and create a mini floral wardrobe for spring.
I also wanted to design something unexpected in paper so I created a white shift dress and added light and dark floral panels to each side. I love the black, white and pink combination and might have to plan a visit to the fabric store!
