Versace Secret

When you read this I will probably be running around Copenhagen and interviewing Bottega Veneta's boutique manger for a case study, wish me luck! For now I will show you a little secret. Those who follow me on twitter already have a pretty good idea of what this is since I uploaded a (quite bad) picture when I bought it. Can you other ones guess? When I come back I will show you what I managed to get from the collection. Until then have a nice time everyone!

Fashion Week Honduras 2/4

Although part 1 was great we must continue. Today we talk about the last 3 shows of the first day. This section offered a mixture of menswear, jewelry and a newcomers. Sounds exciting? Have a look:

This line offers both womens- and menswear but their main focus is the second one, or at least as I perceive it. Brothers Daniel and Francisco Galeano presented this year a retro-vanguardism collection inspired in the 30s and 70s. The black/white dress was quite amazing, the highlight of the collection I believe. It is nice to see honduran designers venturing more to the extreme side of design. The menswear line was a good fusion between modern and latin, as it is important to consider that latin men have very different figures from those of the european men and that is why it is hard to achieve a modern or edgy look and yet keep it latin. Good job!

The brand Sofia-Sofia presented a selection of elegant and modern jewelry pieces which encapsulate honduran femininity at its best. Great to have a break to think about what to pair up all the clothes with.

Last but not least a newcomer took the stage and dazzled the audience. Palette is a new brand, founded by Cecilia Lopez and Melissa Valencia, which has come to rapidly earn its position in the honduran fashion industry. Soon we will present an interview with them here in My Little Wardrobe to learn a little more about them as they share how the brand was born. Coming soon, wait for it!
Their collection is characterized by chic elegance and I believe it is directed to young women who are not afraid to make a fashion statement but always keeping elegance in mind. The colors, materials and shapes all fall into place in a modern way and the show featuring a mime who did everything to get the models' attention was a creative way to present the playful collection. Congratulations and welcome to the Honduran Fashion industry Palette! Good collection!

Fashion Week Honduras 1/4

"Go BIG or go home!" like my adorable friend Gaby says. That is why this comeback is huge! Recently, Honduras celebrated its very own Fashion Week again and in my opinion it gets better every year. Still long way to go but getting better by the minute. This year I had the opportunity to collaborate with Fashion Week Honduras and My Little Wardrobe covered the entire event with the help of a very close friend but most importantly, a great photographer called Nancy Allen. Thank you Fashion Week Honduras an most specifically Fanne for all your support and for giving us this opportunity!
In this post I will take you to Honduras and we will have a look at the first three shows of the first day.
The day started with a dance show from the team in the dance school Patricia Paz.

The opening fashion show was Caroll Malloy. She describes he line as "whimsical with sexual magnetism". The designer is born and raised in Miami but has roots in Honduras and this is her second time presenting a collection in Fashion Week Honduras.  In my opinion the collection was very structured and at the same time elegant and feminine. The theme rings some bells though...
Amber Drü

Amber presented her debut womenswear collection which was inspired in New York City (where she currently lives). The color palette used in the collection clearly resembles a NY feeling and it gives a modern, edgy mood to it all. The bold lining colors used to contrast the black and grey tones used in the garments give the collection a fun twist and show good finishes. Leather is of course big this season and that was a hit! All in all a consistent and good collection!
Tirso Rubio

If you are from Honduras and like fashion you know who he is. In my very humble opinion Tirso is a designer to keep an eye on. I was introduced to his designs last fashion week and I was completely blown away. Did I mention he is a self-taught designer?? This year he came back with his "Afterhours" collection which is born from the idea of the human being always wanting more. The collection is developed in the thought of the future, where, as the designer describes, we will live in between land and ocean, which is why blue is the main color in the collection. The ocean/land idea is also supported by the use of very contrasting materials and textures. I personally liked the denim skirts and the vests. I also like the use of accessories, they support what we have heard a lot for the 2011-2012 collections: "It's not which bag you're wearing, it's HOW you are wearing it!" Concluding: As a whole a very good collection with a consistent theme and as many mentioned, perfect finishes! Everything looked as it had been stitched by an angel, great on that side but also I believe sometimes less is better. Well done Tirso, you have won our heart once again!
Hope you have all enjoyed this introduction to the Fashion Week and keep our eyes open for the following posts.
