Fashion Line: The Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology Graduates Show 2012

What Fashionwidget Loved: Everything was awesome and unique in its own way and I wish all these recent graduates all the best in their fashion careers. I loved the groovy outfits which were unexpected and fun.

Cutesy Couture Front Row at the Jean-Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2012 Haute Couture collection show in Paris
VERY CUTE STYLE
I didn’t even bother to check the dictionary to see if “cutesy” is an actual word or slang, these ladies were seriously styling front-row at the JPG S/S 2012 show that I had to run and report it, so please pardon any jargon. :)

FASHIONWIDGET’S TOP 5 GOWNS
Of course the house of Elie Saab is synonymous with opulent elegance. The brand is certainly famous for their intricately designed and tailored gowns but what really sets this design label apart is the ability to continue to “wow” us with show-stopping-bride-pleasing-evening-wearing spectacular gowns each time without being repetitive.

MUST SEE LOOKS↓
If there is one thing you should know about the Badgley Mischka fashion house, it is that the designers behind the brand know how to create ensembles to flatter the female figure no matter what shape or size. Their signature looks include clean natural cuts topped with intricate embellishments, classic fluid lines and the simple yet eye-catching silhouette as evident in their magnificent Pre-Fall 2012 collection which went on display for the press on December 13th, 2011 in New York City.

Sonam Kapoor & Freida Pinto Take Paris by Storm in Chanel at the Grand Palais Chanel Paris-Bombay Show
BOLLYWOOD OR BUST
Okay, so technically Freida Pinto is not a Bollywood actress but that has never stopped the media from pegging her as a one despite the fact that she has never appeared in a Bollywood film thus far, so I’m just going to jump on that bandwagon for the sake of this post. I would be more politically correct and say “Indian Actress” but that does not rhyme with my catch phrase.
More importantly, just how tall is Sonam Kapoor? Just look at how she towers above Freida Pinto like a supermodel. Even in what looks like at least three or four-inch heels on Pinto.
Both Pinto and Kapoor were beautifully draped in Chanel at the Paris-Bombay show by Chanel in Paris on Tuesday night, each woman sporting a design from the Spring 2012 Collection.

HOT OFF THE RUNWAY
My mum warned me that those long flowy pleated sunray skirts (at least that’s what she calls them) were making a comeback and now by George, I have to say, I believe, I believe.
What stands out to me about this collection aside from it not being too fussy is the sharpness and the sort of clean-cut-urban-chic it evokes. Any woman would be at ease in any one of these designs. I like how every outfit seems to be making a bold statement of its own, be it with the statement accessories or cut and design. Even with the presence of a theme, no two designs remind you what you’ve just seen walk by and that’s exactly the feeling any woman would hope she is exuding when she’s all dressed up. This Pre-Fall Collection was unveiled on Monday in New York City and I hope you enjoy my ‘best of the lot’ selections as displayed below.
