Valdenize was born in a small town on the state of Paraiba in north eastern Brazil, and since an early age she has shown signs of creative talent and an entrepreneurial drive. At nineteen she moved to the UK to pursue a fashion career using the proceeds from a small beauty business she developed to open a shop in Oxfordshire making and selling bespoke dresses of her own design. She has since moved to London, and continues to design and sell fully bespoke dresses to private clients, and made-to measure dresses via her website. She designs for all shapes and sizes, with a willingness to look good the only criteria. Although she has lived in the UK for ten years, the vibrancy of her birthplace has never left her, with strong colours and arresting designs always a feature of her work, tempered by the sophistication of an established Londoner.
Brazilian designer Valdenize Soares is showcasing her evening wear collection, inspired by crimson sunsets and the tropical night sky with Fashions Finest on 18 September 2016.

It is the month of February and I can feel that love is in the air; I would not be surprised if I saw Cupid himself shooting arrows at strangers.
If only summer can be around January to December!! We would all love that, but the reality is summer is only 3 months of the year. Pretty soon we will be in August and saying goodbye to the summer. So it’s best to start start adding key autumn pieces to your wardrobe now to make the summer- autumn transition that much easier.

While the weather is still sunny accessorize with a scarf that is not so thick and heavy, so that it does not leave you sweating but still keeps you warm on cooler days.
Scarfs are a perfect way to jazz up a drab outfit as it adds a pop of colour to your outfit.
A hat makes for a great accessory no matter the season but are more prominent during autumn. While the weather is still hot and sunny you can wear it to protect your hair from sun damage or to hide a bad hair day.
