In the spotlight: Falguni and Shane Peacock

Designer duo Falguni and Shane Peacock have made a mark in the international fashion industry with their edgy, futuristic style and intricate Indian embellishments. From Katy Perry, Fergie, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Scherzinger and Brandy to Nicki Minajall have donned the duos quirky designs. The latest song from the Bollywood movie Players.

Falguni and Shane Peacock are a pleasant change from the ubiquitous unflattering modified versions of international designers that the Indian designers boast. Their designs have a futuristic sculptural and playful feel to them. The duos creations are meant for women who aren't scared to stand out in the crowd and love the attention!!!!

Common Love of Fashion Bloggers

Bloggers are making a rave in the fashion world. Fashion and trends are now no more in the hands of select few people with means and resources. The twenty first century has been blessed with a whole new world altogether of blogging, which has given the common person a space of their own where they can express themselves, their thoughts and their creativity and make a difference to the world.

Fashion blogging has opened doors for individuals with a good fashion sense to share their style sitting even the remotest of locations with people across the world from Singapore to New York to Mumbai to London to Dubai to Hong Kong to Sydney or Milan. They created a powerful space and have been recognised for their work. Today they have a voice of their own where they dictate trends and collaborate with the biggest names in fashion. Some of them have become the muse to the Gods of the fashion industry, some have collaborated with the big labels and some continue to express themselves without any frills attached.

Let us see what are the current common love of the fashion bloggers:

Rebecca Minkoff's bags, pleated skirts, Kors by Michael Kors Gold Watch, Alexander Wang Studded Bags and Steve Madden's Gretta Bags are some of the items that fashion bloggers are loving and each of them have styled these in their own unique ways.

Michael Kors Gold Watch

You don't need to wait to get a hands on a Rolex Gold Watch to look stylish, this Michael Kors watch is just as good and these fashionable women have proved it. It looks elegant and sophisticated.

Asymmetric Dresses and Skirts

Look elegant  and sexy at the same time with asymmetric dresses and skirts. These fluid feminine style will give an updated beat to your style and make you stand out for all the right reasons. Pair an asymmetric skirt with a rough-hewn blouse to emulate studied quirkiness or toughen it with a jacket - whatever way you choose its certainly going to up your style quotient (and showing of that little leg would certainly turn some heads)

Long or short, nudes or brights they have become a wardrobe staple and these stylish women have shown how versatile they can be. You can wear them dressed up or down, pair it with a jacket for a more formal look or team with a tee for a more casual style.

COS Spring Summer 2012

Love COS (Collection of Style) for its sophisticated styles, clean lines, simple silhouettes and no-fuss colour palette. Their clothing can be best termed as simplicity with a twist and wearable art.

COS's Spring Summer 2012 was very COS and edgy and there was nothing not to love. Printed pants, colour palette of light blues and dark midnight, whites with a hint of green and bottle green, separates with stylish draping yet simple cuts dominated the collection. Every piece from their collection was a piece of art.

I want them all, I just wish they start international shipping and accept international credit cards.

Talbot Runhof Spring 2012 - PFW

Johnny Talbot and Adrian Runhof (Talbot Runhof) centered their Spring 2012 collection around the very 'spring' trends including polka dots, colours and prints.

Talbot Runhof's collection delightfully stood out  because of interesting dots, unusual structures in dresses, tops and skirts and refreshing summer colours.

After a fresh take on colours, their collection also had the classic black and white pieces. The popular laser cut detailing, as seen on the mighty Louis Vuitton, sprung up beautifully in the duo's collection too.

Spotted makeup faux pas on the model.
