Marchesa has always been extraordinary with creating beautiful feminine dresses using technical fabric manipulation and undeniably stunning colours. I love that I can almost feel the textures of each piece just by looking at a picture.

"Good Gone Bad" Philipp Plein took our favourite Disney princesses and gave them modern edge. Taking some classic Disney graphic tees and presenting them to an older audience as approachable everyday wear. I like the influence of different periods. From crinoline skirts to childhood memories and modern fit and flare. Plein gave what would have been a casual outfit, a more 3D enhancement that continues to keep the beautiful feminine silhouette.

Crisp cut silhouettes softened by pastels and light ripples in the fabrics. Every component of the outfits looks as though they were immaculately calculated to slant at a 45 degree angle, and perhaps they were. Is is over the top to say those dramatically large bows remind me of bunnies? And it doesn't help that spring colours overlap with Easter colours. I'm almost certain the models will start bouncing off my screen. Just wait for it. Definitely one of my favourite collections for SS18!

What a better way to show off the beautiful radiancy and colour blocking of a fabric than with pleats? Ever since watching those haute couture behind the scenes "The Making of" videos on Youtube, I've always had mad respect for pleats. The time and delicacy that is required is unbelievable. I'm a fan of wearing lots of colours as you may know, and what better way to accomplish that desire than by wearing them all at the same time? I'm also really digging the tied up/knotted shirts. Wouldn't you agree they're a one up from tying a knot at the side of your shirt to make it cropped? At least that's what I used to do all time because every girl in my middle school would.
I finally found a designer and her collection that express almost inexplicably perfect how I envision my style is at its best! Super bold colours, patterns and mixes of prints. I especially love the first outfit. A tad more masculine in fit, but still feminine enough for my likings. Big glasses, big yellow coats, big dreams. Me me me. I'm in love. Also how do I get my hair to look like that?

From the hairstyles to colour hues, I'm really feeling he 60's influence in Malone's collection. The outfits feel cool, light, and eye catching. I love how the blue stripes are a staple in every outfit. They are very vibrant but never overthrowing. Malone manipulated the fabrics and played with patterns with grace, elegance, and freshness.

I've never thought much of Marc Jacobs besides it being a high end makeup brand. That's why I wasn't sure I would love this collection as much as I do. The one thought that pops into my head is that some of the models look like walking replications of the Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume line. The black accents with the vibrant spring colours makes for the perfect feminine bad-ass. The cherry on top are the bags because as boss women we have places to go and people to see.
