I’m absolutely smitten by the wonderful floral fabrics used in Stella McCartney‘s and Valentino‘s Pre-Spring 13 collections. While they are very different, both collections illustrate perfection in their own way. I always admired Stella’s approach to fashion; clean silhouettes mixed with contemporary fabrics while Valentino’s appreciation of the female silhouette and exquisite workmanship is a dream. I went to have a close up look at the Valentino collection and I’m humbled only considering there are seven different colours of lace to be cut and sewn onto the dress. I will keep this in mind when if feel frustrated about sewing….
