Fashion Week Frenzy - a trend reappearing in New York, London, Milan and Paris runway shows.
Ombre - a technique of dyeing from light to dark...it's been around for a long time and is practically tie-dye's closest cousin! Numerous runways were ALIVE with ombre fabrics for spring. They have such a FUN and care-free feel to them, don't they? Diane Von Furstenberg and Matthew Williamson showed numerous ombre frocks and this gorgeous starlet was recently seen gallavanting around town in one! Ombre looks more high-fashion than tie-dye and is a much, much more rigorous process whose total cost depends on labour, desired colour, number of transitions and general difficulty of the job. Hence why we ALWAYS used to tie-dye our shirts at summer camp and never ombre them! I've included some magnificent savvy-ombre-stylin' for you below! The Prada bag is just lust-worthy and appears in all their newest ad campaigns but I'm also really diggin' the racerback tank from Urban Outfitters! Again, ombre frocks gallavanted down the runways in New York, London, Milan and Paris...what more reason do you need to invest in a piece, pronto? Happy ombre hunting!
