February featured fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. London Fashion Week 2018 was February 16-20, and a major theme at LFW2018 was female empowerment. We were more than inspired by the shows and the way the designers explored new styles. Spanish designer Emilio de la Morena got runway inspiration from the 1983 musical Yentl, embodying a perfect contrast between masculinity and femininity. Here are some of our favorite pieces he presented on the catwalk
Emilio de la Morena crafted designs with bold, vibrant colors. One of our first favorite pieces was an interestingly tailored dress. The style and cut of the dress gave off a masculine feel, but it was mixed with a feminine allure of ruffles. The tiered ruffle cocktail dresses we saw on the runway were like none other and truly embraced femininity.
Secondly, flounce-sleeve blouses are going to be a must have this season. We loved the sheer material of Emilio de la Morena’s design and the bright pink and green colors were perfect for spring. The puffed architecture of the silhouette will leave women feeling empowered with their wardrobe choices, whether wearing a flounce sleeve to the office, to a night out, or simply to a cafe to read and relax.
Finally, Emilio de la Morena’s brocade coats were possibly one of our favorites from the collections. These stylish coats were designed with detachable fake fur collars, and some were embellished with crystal trims which cascaded from pockets! Designs like we have never seen inspire women everywhere to not be afraid to defy conformity in pursuit of expressing yourself.
