I'm liking Manjit..

Freshly graduated from the London College of Fashion, Manjit Deu is the new face of elegant, futuristic clothing design. This newcomer designed a collection that was inspired by Miami's South Beach architecture that had a colorful appeal and a possitive upbeat to it. 
It's a mix of Deco and Disco, in a glamorous way. 
His great tailoring and effortless fit sets him worlds apart from other upcoming designers.
The collection is totally HOT! 

Worth keeping your eyes on him, I know I am.

Well.. Hello everyone!

I've been super-duper-abso-freakin-lutely-over-my-head-expialidociously busy these days!
So Happy New Year to u!
If you're curious about my festive new year's eve .. click here :)
ok to make a long story short.. I've been to a wedding recently.. and aaaaaaaaaaaah.. I have to let out.. I don't want to be judgemental or anything.. actually yes I do LOL I love blogging for that sole reason.
It has been an experience, almost like a movie.. at times I almost cried, I laughed, I was scared, had tears in my eyes, got angry, and surely disappointed.. but then laughed hysterically at the end!

What's the trend in Kuwaiti weddings you ask me?

Ok, so here's the deal: some women wore identical dresses or jumpsuits or whatever (I wish they read my previous post before going) so we couldn't help but compare; who wore it best?

Then comes the hottest trend of this season and I was so sarcastically sad that I didn't catch up on this new craze..
Long, over the elbow gloves.. in all sorts of colors! but mainly black, and white, with jewelry on top.. now how about that for an 80's tacky revival!
I am sure they meant no harm and wanted to pull it off as graceful and elegant as possible, but I'm afraid that's impossible. These women lacked taste, poise, class, style etc.. for they had too much colors painted on their faces, some beehives and a small garden growing on their heads with little nests and chains made out of hair. And to top it all, disturbing jewelry.
They were hoping to pull off an Audrey Hepburn on us, but sadly, it's the whole "B"ackage

ok next comes the
big, thick, boho reverse french braids that end in tiny tails is the hottest thing in K town..

come in third place..
(white cuffs made out of pleated chiffon or lace, gathered and held by a black ribbon)

We're used to seeing women with dark skin apply a ton of lighter toned foundation to weddings. Now it's quite the opposite.
is in!
Being bronze in winter is so chic. And matching your bright hair color to your skin tone is a MUST!

ok last but, absolutely, not least..
Exclusively in Kuwait.
A miniature replica of Burj Khalifa (previously known as burj Dubai) on your head!
Now imagine this.. a black abstract thing, towering 35-40cm above your head with a diameter of around 15-20cm, pointed at the tip. Just like the burj. Now that's something..
I admired her for her courage, and only for that.

ciao for now :)
