Fashion Is A Pain | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Fashion never stops to amaze me! Every season, every year, new inspirations twist our way of dressing and yet guess where designers draw their ideas? The past, again and again regurgitated in new million facets!
This fall 2013, the choice of designs and colors have fallen on the Tudor and Medieval fashion. Alexander McQueen and a few others took Tudor’s fashion to a new height. Although the look is very pretty and most appropriate for Opera soirée, I don’t think women will want to dress in crinolines again crowned with tiaras!

Miuccia Prada latest “Miu Miu” collection has interpreted women as androids, in my opinion. Dark colors and mostly black are the choices of this collection. With the exception of a few bright pieces, the collection seems quite gloomy to me. She highly structured her clothes and body shapes are cinched in tight belts. Shoes are flat, bulky, kind of tanks for feet.

Louis Vuitton has resurrected the feminine shape, small waist, and voluptuous curves and no it doesn’t mean that women have become submitted creatures or sexy pot. Woman’s beauty should be celebrated with clothes that emphasize it and elevate it.

In the fall 2013 Italian designers envision women in punk clothes and Mohicans fur hair extension. You read it right fur hair extension!

There isn’t anything new under the sun. Ideas are cooked, re-cooked and re-proposed as leftover food with new flavors. I see more creativity in street fashion, at least people don’t have the pretense of wanting to be designers and feel freer to express themselves with shapes and colors best suitable for their moods.

I encourage people to embrace color, always pushing them outside their comfort zones. This fall 2013 try the versatile color palette. Get into the warm “Linden Green” with the “Carafe” accented with the vibrant “Samba” or “Koi”, but then “Beaujolais” “Koi” and “Emerald” together are so tempting. Whatever colors you chose this fall, must feel comfortable and exalt your personality.

    I loved reading this post of yours. I agree–street fashion is far more creative and wearable everyday by real women! I have a good friend who works for a company that requires everyone to wear all black. I could not work there. I love color!

      Hi Kate,
      In the case of your friend, the company doesn’t want employees to stand out more than the products.There are moments when black is necessary. If one wants to disappear in the background, black is fine, I prefer colors. Thanks for the visit.

    Reblogged this on Design Secrets and commented:
    Great post! And I agree, the fashion of every day people walking down the street is not only more realistic in terms of what someone would wear, but also often more attractive than that on the runway. Anyone else agree?

      Nancy, I appreciate your sharing of my blog, thank you so much. I love fashion, but often I am critical about it. Runways truly amuse me and the majority of people can’t face an everyday life with ultra extravagant clothes.
