March Inspiration

I cannot believe it is already March! I have been busy working away in the background on CaraGray.com and am so excited to reveal some new developments very soon! I will also be spending more time on Uptown Twirl to publish daily fashion articles. So be sure to stay posted…

In the meantime, here are a couple of my March inspirations:

March Inspirations…. The breathtaking Erdem Fall 2012 collection; Behind the scenes drama at Fashion Week; Burberry’s beautiful Fall rain; one of my favourite films, Manhattan; Audrey Hepburn’s divine orange coat in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. And of course what month would be complete without some delightful sweet treats. This month is all about macaroons… yet again xx

Happy Weekend!

Fashion Inspired By Art

For Spring / Summer 2012, fashion takes a masterclass from the world of art.

The Spring / Summer 2012 collections were ablaze with artistic references. At Rodarte, Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’ and ‘Starry Night’ were exquisitely printed onto 50’s inspired dresses, creating breathtakingly beautiful & quite simply stunning result.

Giles Deacon drew inspiration from Andy Warhol’s ‘Silver Clouds’. Raf Simons equally created an extraordinary fashion-art moment when he turned to Picasso ceramics for a modernist take on knitwear at Jil Sander.

Sculptors were also a great reference of inspiration. At Burberry, Christopher Bailey found inspiration in the work of sculptor Henry Moore. While Mary Katrantzou explored the work of John Chamberlain’s crushed-car sculptures. Aluminium cans substituted for car parts in her beautiful abstract creations. Minimalist sculptor, Richard Serra’s metal structures were the starting point for Nicole and Michael Colovos first runway collection for Helmut Lang.

Meanwhile, Dries Van Noten collaborated with photographer James Reeve, using imagery from his Lightscapes series.

I believe fashion is an art form – especially in the case of Haute Couture. Do you see Fashion as an art form all it’s own? I would love to hear your thoughts. xx

The Classic Trench Coat

Recently, I was invited by the gorgeous Bespoke RSVP to write for their blog. This is my first article for Bespoke RSVP on the classic trench coat – an essential must have piece in every woman’s wardrobe.

The trench coat is a wardrobe classic. Boasting an impressive history; countess ‘love affairs’ with the world’s most stylish; and a design based upon function and style – the trench coat is a true fashion icon…
