We all know that sorting out clothes, shoes and bags can be some people’s worse nightmare. Keeping your wardrobe organised will make life stress-free but what to keep and what to get rid of can sometimes be chaotic.

This guide will unveil the secrets of the "craft" of keeping your wardrobe up to date and always well-organised.


There are different ways of dividing and sorting your clothing and accessories, below the easiest and the most effective.

Dividing Your Wardrobe

The easiest way to sort out your pile of clothes is by dividing each clothing piece into categories. For example, all blazers and jackets will be together, all bottoms – such as skirts, shorts, jeans and trousers – will be next to one another. Therefore, when looking for a jacket to match your jeans, you can see them all against each other and, for that reason, styling an outfit would be simpler. Also, when buying more clothes on a shopping spree you will know what items you may need or want to replace, due to all categories being in one place.
An example of this method is the image below, where all the tops are hung together.

The Colour Technique

Another way to organise your wardrobe in a very therapeutic way is by colour coordination. Starting with whites, light pastels, beiges to browns, greys and blacks, making your very own rainbow in your closet. This way, colours are easier to pick out and complement each other. Some of you may have a more neutral rainbow, while others may have bright, bold colours; either way, this is a great way to section your wardrobe to know where everything is and to keep your clothes, looking aesthetically pleasing.

Address The Seasons

The last way to arrange your closet is by season, which is a great way to store your clothes in a time when you may not need them.

Winter clothes are bulky and thick compared to the clothes you wear during the summer period. Therefore, it is undeniable that you may need more closet space in the coldest months. Instead of throwing your favourite summer dresses which – you know well – you will not be able to wear, store them. It could be in a suitcase, a box or in a spare room to maintain their quality, just be careful not to store them anywhere damp. This simple way of separating clothes to weather-coordinated will save you storage and money, while also keeping your wardrobe tidy and accessible. Make sure to keep those statement pieces and give away those that are purely a miss.

With these three tips on the ways to organise your wardrobe, you should have a tidy and iconic setup in no time – just without the hassle.

Valentino Transforms the World of Haute Couture

Kristen McMenamy, an icon in the fashion industry since the '90s, opened Valentino’s Haute Couture fashion show during Paris Fashion Week. That moment, everyone knew the Italian luxury fashion house had started a revolution in the industry.

Valentino embraced body diversity during the Paris Haute Couture Week, hopefully inspiring other designers to follow their example.

 

The World Of Haute Couture

Haute couture is the world of high fashion. If we were to translate it literally, it means "high dressmaking". In other words, it refers to custom-made garments, designed by world-renowned designers and made from high-end, expensive fabrics and stitched with the utmost attention to detail by companies of the highest quality.

Haute couture fashion shows are a form of art. They are just like staging a play or choreographing a performance. From designing the garments to choosing the right models to deliver the message of the collection to selecting the music of the show. When all these little details come together they create a breathtaking fashion show. One of the most anticipated couture fashion shows is the Paris Haute Couture Week.

Valentino Is Redefining The Meaning Of Haute Couture

The world of haute couture consists of custom-made dresses with six-figure price tags and because it symbolises perfection it is seen as an unlikely conduit for modernity. Piccioli thinks otherwise, he sees the symbolic power of the diversity represented at one of the world's most important events as solidifying the winds of change. The shows during Fashion Week have always been about young, perfectly-looking, thin models walking down the runway displaying the garments. This year the creative director of Valentino, Pierpaolo Piccioli decided to follow a different path and go with something that has not been seen before. Models with grey hair and women of all sizes walked down the runway wearing the new collection of the brand.

The Meaning Behind The Show

When asked why Piccioli took on this approach to the show, he shares: “I wanted to break these rules and embrace the idea of different proportions of body, different sizes, different ages. But it was impossible to do this with just one house model. So, I broke the rules and got 10 house models with differently proportioned bodies”.

The runway show immediately stood out from all the others. It featured different body types and models of all ages such as Kristen McMenamy, Marie Sophie Wilson and Violeta Sanchez. In an interview with Vogue, Piccioli shares that those same models who walked on the runway were previously discouraged from even entertaining the possibility of walking couture. That is at the heart of the meaning of the collection. It is not made for a specific body type, more like for a variety of women with different body types and ages. The designer encourages the idea that there is no one definition of what beauty is.

Piccioli is on his way to redefining the way runway shows are heading by breaking down the stereotypes in the industry. He is starting a conversation among people in a position of power in the industry and fashion enthusiasts. One thing is certain – women of different ages, shapes and sizes deserve to be portrayed on the runway.
