Quebec City bathed in peppy fashion this week, when Infinity Fashion Show hit the town. We all know how the sartorial wheel turns, non? Now in the veritable vogue capitals New York, London, Paris and Milan the big creator names are designing what we will be wearing for spring and summer 2014. One year in advance. These concoctions shall be showcased in the above four cities’ fashion weeks in September-October. There store buyers decide what they order and then these clothes are what we see in shows like the Infinity Fashion Show. The real stuff that you and I can go and buy now. So it is tangible, instant and speaks to us directly.
What caught my eye in the trend show started with H&M‘s colorful tops and blazers. Peachy and pinky tones were definitely up and front.
Guess by Narcisco lathered us with reachable luxury. Fringey dresses, sequined detailing, aglow colors – burning yellows were the awesomest.
Prints and tribal inspired themes will be sizzling on the summer street.
Then there was the hippie chic luxe combinations of Ester P. The trendiest store in Quebec City.
Aquarelle flowery pants are this season’s novelty. I see them popping up all over the fash’ fields.
I confess having had too many stripes in my childhood vogue choices, and yet, with sequins I think I’d be ready to plunge again. Stripes rule, as you know. Illico presto.
Mango was present in the show with fruity colors. Their chic is wearable from morning to eve.
Last pearl in my bucket was American Apparel. The Montreal-based company still produces all their offerings in Canada. Isn’t that something? Vogue with heart. To me American Apparel does staples well – body hugging suits, leotards and skimpy party dresses. They are a bit pricey, so I usually go easy on my purchases.
Infinity Fashion Show in Quebec City was an evening of uplifting inspirations. I dressed up all trendy, ventures out, met some like-minded fashionistas and hopped home my heart one hit happier.
This is what fashion can be for you and I. Little pieces of everyday gold. Giving ideas on how to live with enthusiasm. How to communicate out what you feel within.
I’ll be going on a trip to Ottawa tomorrow. I love traveling. You have figured. Since New York for Christmas, I haven’t moved around so it is about time. Checking out the Ottawan vogue scene. Reporting back, I promise. Thinking of you, my dear reader… Fashion kisses!
