Stella McCartney Spring 2011

Although it may seem as though I have abandoned yet another blog, it isn't true! I have just been so super busy that I have had no time for even thinking about nice things, let alone blogging them for you. One of my new projects is pulling the fashion for the mannequins to wear at Holt Renfrew in Calgary. It is really nice to be a part of the new and beautiful store and play dress up with designer fashion and giant Barbies! Like my job could get any better! 

My favorite new collection in the store is Stella McCartney "Spring" she calls it but really it's resort (for those of you who may not know there are 4 seasons for fashion. Although only Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter are usually shown on a runway, resort and pre-fall are still very important.) I heard someone last week call it cruise-wear which seems so old fashioned so maybe Stella is on to something. Resort might be old fashioned but I think calling it spring is confusing. The idea of a resort collection is to have something in the stores for those people who leave in the winter and go to a "resort" and need swimwear, light clothes and gowns with which to dress for dinner. It is strange to me how those clothes are in the stores when you need them however all the winter clothes are sold out by January in most places. 

But I digress. I need to research this a bit more for my own satisfaction, but I leave you with the video of Stella speaking about her beautiful "Spring" collection. The floral prints are so crisp on the silk and I love how they are presented. In stores now!
