Fashion Report: Fendi Resort Collection 2017

Since it is summer and everyone needs a vacation once in a while, I have recently been trying to find my favourite resort wear collection that are couture and classic! There are so many to choose from but today we will look into the Fendi resort collection for 2017. This collection is new and ready to be and set new trends throughout the year!

The colours and patterns in this collection are not what you would think of if you tried to think of resort wear, they are more of a dark toned colour with deep reds, deep blues and blacks! The patterns are also very geometric and not what you would think of for a resort type of feel. I am in love with the innovation and the new thinking that Fendi brings to this resort collection! Its all about mixing patterns and keeping similar colours in a monotone theme! The silhouettes are amazing and give off the flowing resort feel that most would think about when they think of resorts!

There are bows and big sunglasses and anything else you could imagine! Not to mention amazing hand bags that are to die for!! Truly amazing!!

Catching up on trends!

There have been a lot of trends that have already become big in 2016, they have been seasonal and non seasonal trends that can be used an time. The trends have been varying from modern to rustic and everywhere in between!

Most of the modern trends have to do with the time and the trends that are happening in other aspects of the world, like fashion and style; they are big influencers in the wedding industry.

Floral walls are very in, they can be either hanging from the walls or from the ceiling, both are very in right now at this moment especially because of the summer and the beautiful florals that are available right now!

A hair trend would have to be the high classic ballerina bun, the vail can be perfect for this look and it is sleek and elegant! They can also be loose buns, even a low bun! Buns are so in right now! During the summer months it is a good look because the warmer weather helps with the hair and keeping it out of your face on a special day!

A nice treat for your wedding or event that is one trend right now would have to be donuts! they are all the rage right now! there are donuts everywhere!! Fancy colourful donuts are the best colourful treat for your guests!

Copper of course is in trend, who doesn't love a good metallic additive to any event! they are just so modern and chic but can be dressed down to be rustic or vintage! There are metallic press ons that are very popular on the invitations or thank you card that you give out! they can go right with the theme of your wedding or event to make people remember your amazing day even more!

Drone photography is really popular these days, they have new ways of achieving the birds eye view! Truly amazing to be able to capture the view of your wedding or event, it is creative and innovative!

There are so many more trends that are yet to come within 2016, this has been a great year so far!!

All about the Necklines!

All about the neckline of a gown, your wedding day is all that you want it to be, you decide how much you want to show or not! there are of course more subtle necklines that are classic and more modest and then there are necklines that like to bare it all!

There are so many ways to express a neckline within and on a dress, there can be variations of certain necklines as well to make it just your own!

There are the typical necklines in things such as sweethearts, straight, off the shoulder, v-neck, halter strap, spaghetti straps; these are more of the traditional looks that can be given in a wedding gown, then there are the jewel neck, the scoop neck, the square, halter, high neck, Sabrina neck, asymmetrical, queen Anne line, illusion, cowl neck and the grecian.

The new looks that are in trend and on look right now would have to be a nice grecian beaded look, an illusion neckline is always beautiful, a high neck two piece neckline, and a nice v-neck!

All these necklines are beautiful and can truly compliment any body type! choose what is best for you and what you would like to see most on your figure to flatter what you have to show off!

Biggest wedding dress tends to come: keep an eye open!!

Trends change all the time, they evolve and adapt to the times! Wedding dress trends also change, not at such a rapid pace but still changing with every season that new brands and designers come up with different ideas. There are always going to be timeless lines and collecting that have key styles, but you can be sure that puffy 80’s sleeves are not going to be coming back anytime soon!

One of the main focuses and statements of bridal 2016 so far has been sheer dresses, lace and all the linen that you can think of! Spanish inspired design houses like Naeem Kahn are very on point with this, the spring 2016 side of trends within the industry! Most of the retailed lines are shown as nude but not nude so that you feel comfortable wearing it around your family, there is something for everyone! The key of finding your perfect nude dress is making sure it shows off all the right assets, and tastefully accentuates your body in the perfect way for your special day!

Colour trends to come do include the light pale pinks and mint greens, but 2016 so far has been a pretty dark year, with the darker colours becoming more of a trend! Deep reds and modern gothic looks and moody have a romantic feeling. Designers like Inbal Dror and Vera Wang have been expressing this in recent collections.

Designer Angel Sanchez has added 3D floral applications to collections, which is personally my favourite and adds such a perfect touch to the dress, they are not overpowering but they have a simple and elegant touch to the dresses, plus flowers are just amazing!

Silhouettes are always fun to play with in the bridal industry! Oscar de la Renta often plays with the classic sweet but modern take on the silhouettes, but the dresses and gowns are amazing every time!

As long as you feel amazing in the dress it doesn't really matter if it follows the trends, you need to make yourself happy first!
