Trend 12/13 - Raffia

Bags trend on this season - raffia. Looks very light and comfortable. I thought that raffia bag could wear in spring on beach and etc, but designers broke this muth and I''ll wear it with great pleasure. I liked most Anya Hindmarch's floral raffia bag, which's first in my list.

My Fav. designers and fashion houses used velvet in 12/13 rtw collections. Skirts, dresses, pants, jumpsuits and some of them used this material  for only details, but it's fact that velvet must be new trend on these seasons. I adore Dolce & Gabbana dress, with  massive golden details and u can see the post about this collection on this link Dolce & Gabbana 12/13 - National Motives. I plan to sew a velvet dress  with my design and  I'll post pictures as soon as I can. Good luck to u and to me also.

Dolce & Gabbana 12/13 - National Motives

When I saw Dolce & Gabbana 12/13 RTW collection I was very surprised, because collection was very attractive, luxurious and charming. Lacy and velvety dresses and details, also coats, skirts, blouses, corsets, collars, also limpid materials and many many different prints. There are very massive accessories, bags with pearls and chains and etc. In first inspection I saw that in collection was some of Uzbek and Ukrainian motives, of course it's only my opinion but I'll base it with some of pictures.

And here is slides from collection with Ukrainian motives and picture of  national dance, with traditional costumes.
