Presenting the 2014 collection from Lebanese designer Fouad Sarkis.
Now, there are only a few collections that would make us squeal with excitement, and this is definitely one of them. The collection is bursting with different colours to make women feel daring and different as she explores her inner confident self!
According to Fouad – “I thought of women like stars, I designed this collection with a bursting heart and ignited passion.
In Spring and Summer, nature blossoms. I never design to impress; I design to create. My Spring Summer 2014 collection embeds colors that are not so familiar to the eye. I do not want a woman to step inside of my dress and see herself inside. I want her to step in my dress and find a new self inside. I want her to build some motivation, confidence, and self-fulfillment inside my piece. I want her to dare.
The same way nature blossoms at this time of the year, I designed my gowns. My new collection blossoms within a bucket of flowers, colors, and glowing elements in a fresh and sparkling combination.”
Well we don’t need any more convincing, we absolutely love the pieces and everything they represent.
Check it out.
We have fab Ghanaian fashion!
From Ghanaian womenswear fashion designer Sarah Christian, this collection is bringing you creative fashion to inspire your everyday lives. The “Lujo” Collection (which means Luxury in Spanish) is all about the use of colour with gold, silver, yellow and purple.
The pieces, made with African fabrics, give off a sexy and feminine feel that enhances the female body. We like how staple everyday pieces were created with an African vibe.
Check out the collection and let us know what you think.
Okay, we get it Lupita, you are a red carpet goddess.
If you know anything about the Cannes film festival, apart from the movies, it’s all about the fashion.
Yesterday, 12 Years a Slave Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o was present at theCalvin Klein Collection party celebrating Women in Film at the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival.
Princess Lupita bounced back in style in a strapless shimmery blue dress with a stylish cut-out.
She accessorized with diamond stud earrings by Vita Fede, a black clutch and a pair of silver ankle strap heels. Her famous feature – the ever changing hairstyle, was styled up.

Nigerian Designer Emmy Collins has unveiled his latest collection – “Timeless“.
We haven’t seen a collection from him in a while but at his Style Weekend event in Lagos, the brand showcased its Spring/Summer 2014 collection to its attending audience. The collection is filled with staple pieces including shirts with asymmetrical cuts and gingham prints, polka dotted ties and other separates.
According to Emmy, “Whenever I venture into designing any garment, what stays paramount in my mind besides quality, cut, fabric and originality/innovation of the design is that purchasing a fashion item is and should be an investment that should stand the test of time”. He went on to say, “I wouldn’t design a garment that a client would invest a king’s ransom on and then discard only a few months after simply because it has gone out of trend”.
Well, we like the collection and are definitely in support of buying pieces that transcend trends.
Check out the collection.
