While We Wait

While we wait... It feels like I'm anticipating a few things lately. First off, I want to update the Cruise 2010 collections! What I've seen of the YSL and Missoni collections have provoked a large amount of curiosity. The second main thing I absolutely cannot wait for is the Antwerp Royal Academy of Art's fashion show. It runs from June 11-13, so we've got a few weeks, but I am so excited to see the student's collections. Going back through the archives, the students always produce such artistic pieces that really showcase their creativity without feeling the pressures of trying to bend to the market's standards as an up-and-coming struggling designer.

The pictures above are from Basil Soda's SS09 collection. He's a designer I recently stumbled upon, and it seems his forte is embellishments on floorlength gowns. Apparently Katy Perry wore the gown on the right to the Grammy's, and Paris Hilton was spotted wearing one of his creations at the amfAR benefit in Cannes.
