an up-and-comer

Sometimes I am rather intimidated by runways fashion, because I find it hard to imagine myself in the clothes. Although I love the artistic element to it, I can just imagine how out of place I'd feel watching crazy JC de Castelbajac creations or  gorgeous Elie Saab dresses float down the catwalk. However, in Alexandra Kiesel, I have found something so funky and functional that (if my budget permitted) I'd actually wear pretty much anything she sends down the catwalk!

Alexandra Kiesel was the winner of Designer for Tomorrow (judged by none other than Marc Jacobs!) at Berlin Fashion Week last summer. Her geometric, colour blocked collection was a clear stand out among the five finalists, because of its "mix and match" qualities. Everything combined beautifully in the show to create dramatic looks, but it was clear that all the items were actually wearable and interchangeable! I was so inspired by the multitude of colour and how well the palette actually worked...Maybe I should give something like this a shot? :)

Her own choice of clothing also complimented the fun spirit of her collection
My personal fave!

What do you think: is colour-blocking SO last summer or is it coming back???

I'm positive colorblocking will be a trend that hangs around for a couple of seasons. It's a fun and totally accessible trend.

I love this color blocking, I think there is always room for this any season because you can just change the colors to match whatever season it is!!
