Fashion Week: Prete & Bruno

Fashion notes:
Interestingly enough, Prete & Bruno was gearing towards something that was very similar to Reem Acra - the whole extravagant dressing for day to evening. Except the dup stuck to simplicity when designing their dresses. The inspiration was taken from historical beauties like Marlene Dietrich and Grace Kelly, who defined sophistication. Also, the models had a very Audrey Hepburn feel to them in their black dresses and Golightly's signature beehive up-do. The show was all about glamour and elegance.




Key looks:
Classic black with a touch of emerald green and gold, tweed jackets and pencil skirts to sequined and pleated gowns

Silhouettes:
Channeling the ladylike silhouettes - high waistline, flowing feminine gowns

Textiles:
Feather trim, chiffon, silk chiffon, velvet
