According to the stylish and reputable website Dailycandy.com based out of New York, some major spring trends are here. Namely, bright make-up, sheer fabrics, “Tutti-Frutti” flirty prints, wide-leg pants, long skirts/dresses and spring hair (big, natural, textured) are exciting trends that perpetuate the “free-as-a-bird” attitude that is so loved about spring.
Although true style and fashion relies on new perspectives and creativity rather than “following trends,” Sacramento deserves kudos for keeping up with national fashion trends.
During the 2011 Sacramento Fashion Week, emerging designers, fashion lovers and design supporters displayed the ability to stay current and on trend, as well as forming some new trends. Braids, bracelets, fun hair buns and chain accessories are carving a spring niche in Sacramento fashion.
I attended the “Emerging Artist Showcase,” supporting up-and-coming talent cultivated right here in Sacramento. Audrey Jade, Brenda Vie, Faatui Toele, Kira Martinson, Maisha Bahati, Nkaujer (Jules) Thor and Noognuv Thao showed varied and thematically orchestrated lines.
Good Show, Sacramento.
