    that seems odd-why wouldn't alex white style the ads if she styled the show...i guess she must be busy with her new post at W...


    the other trend that i feel is more of an overall direction in fashion is comfort and ease....and i say it's about time... [/b][/quote]

    Miss Grand works alot with the photographers Mert and Marcus - who do the Vuitton Campaign, so I guess they are a package

    I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this one but, I loved the use of strong, bold colors a la Gucci, YSL, Versace, Dior (even though I didn't like the collection). My favorite color I think would be any shade of burgundy, plum, aubergine, midnight blue etc....They are such a great alternative to black, and they add a lot of drama to a garment.

    I also like the continuation from last seasons exploration of 1930s glamour and decadence. It's not really new but it looks so beautiful. Done best IMO, at Gucci (not literally but the evening dresses and fur stoles had an air of Harlow)

    Fitted jackets are also great. They work well as a change from last seasons' trench coats. Best: Gucci python/fur hybrids, YSL peaked shoulder Chinese army-style jackets, McQueen neutral colored tweedy looking jackets.

    Overall I love the continual return to going all out to look good with fashion.

    When I said bold, I meant, saturated, strong, colors, ranging from bright...like red, apple green and yellow to deep and dark, like plum and midnight blue. I guess everyone associates different colors with being bold or strong. Sorry if I misled you. :flower:

    Have you seen the collection from Gianfranco Ferre?
    I loved it!
    And an item that I think women would love to wear with heels -on fall- is this one ..

    I just got the best find in a charity shop:

    A purple and fuschia mohair cape, that was handmade in Scotland. It is beautiful :blush: :heart:

    I see a lot of fur, too..

    Designer jeans are EVERYWHERE, it's getting a little maddening. In the higher-fashion concious circles I think flowy trousers will be making alot of appearances. Also, a lot of dresses and skirts as opposed to casual wear.

    Cropped jackets and boleros are a big thing, too.

    A major influence is going to be old-time opulence, showing through with big baubles, the newly popular brooch, beaded details and the like.

    Black is definitely the color of fall/winter 2004.

    Layering is still in as well as those flower pins. Well I saw lots of differents types of pins on the runway, not just flowers, all sorts of interesting shapes.

    Fur, the classic as well as super tight skirts that hit just below the knee. Those are hot, though it's a hassle to walk during the winter with those so tight skirts on!

    I myself will be loading on colorful sheer pantyhoses (sheer royal blue and sheer turquoise). Those are hot!

    But be creative, be yourself, don't let the runway dictate what you should and shouldn't wear. Follow your insticts honey! ;)

    Black, red, and dark purple and Fur Fur and More fur.


    The PR people for designers who use furs are working overtime to make fur more accepted! I know this from some insiders ;)
