Dress Like a princess

The dress that Kate's Duchess of Cambridge wore is all over the papers, why? because she's high street Princess. Kate's decision to make her purchases from the high street shops has not only boosted sales for retailers but made the average woman on the street feel like they too can dress like a princess and not be out of pocket.

Here is the Reiss dress worn by the Duchess of Cambridge during the Obamas' visit. Shola is a timeless, figure hugging dress that's sure to catch an eye. It has a box neckline, asymmetric overlays on the skirt and a band around the waist. Shola fastens with a concealed zip at the back.

Trend 2011

By Noon Ali

Hair Trends

The ponytail makes a comeback, from casual daytime to evening glamour!

Take a look at some celebrities rocking the hairstyle this spring! It's easy and quick and requires no technique at all! A simple tie back look can go a long way!

Floppy hats

Although I would probably only ever wear one on holiday, FLOPPY HATS are all the rage right now! All the celebrities are wearing them from Kimmy K to Leona Lewis! If I remember correctly it was J.Lo who started off the trend in her "Jenny from the block days" *sigh* and it didn't really stick around for long, but this time I think it may be around for at least two seasons this year! Although it is a hippy boho look, it also has that classic feminine feeling to it. It's fantastic for when the suns out but it's also good for those "I'm running late but my hairs a hot mess" days
Below are a couple of the best ones I've found, take a look and leave a comment

Fashion duo Izzy Camilleri and Adrian Mainella presented their ultra-glam '70s inspired collection on the opening night of LG Fashion Week in Toronto.

Decadent with a disco flair, sexy and fun, the designs showed on the runway were very feminine and full of interesting details like crystal trims and leather accents. Think: Old Holywood and Studio 54 feel, and fashion icons like Bianca Jagger or Jerry Hall. Elegant mixture of luxurious textures: fur with silk and velvet with a touch of glimmer. Rich colour palette. Looks like '70s Glamour continues to be the look-of the-moment.

LOVAS was founded in 2008 by Wesley Badanjak - a talented designer with a distinctive style and interesting vision. Inspiration for his designs comes mainly from music, history and his Croatian heritage. This year collection entitled "Sisters" was inspired by his mom and aunt, their experiences of immigrating to Canada and adopting to a new culture. Elegant, classic pieces; modern silhouettes with detailed finishing; excellent tailoring and use of good quality fabrics. The modern look created by Badanjak is sophisticated and fashion forward, yet wearable and unpretentious.

LOVAS designs are available in Toronto at Apoline (2892 Bloor St W), Eleven Boutique (116 Cumberland St) and Puh Nash (2420A Bloor St W).

Floral patterns, geometric shapes and vibrant graphics - simple and very feminine - were the highlights of the Comrags Fall/Winter 2011 collection shown on Wednesday. Judy Cornish and Joyce Gunhouse (the design duo behind the Comrags label) presented classic, timeless silhouettes and clean, elegant lines; stylish, but modest at the same time. Main colours included mustard, olive, turquoise and black. All the designs from the latest collection called "Wrest" were simple and wearable, not tied to any particular era or season, and not overdoing the major trends.

For more information about the designers and to see their previous collections, please visit the official website: http://www.comrags.com

"Wrest refers to the process of extracting information which is part of the back and forth process that goes on between us as we create our designs." - J. Gunhouse
