The 1950's are back!

The Euporean fashion shows this spring indicate a 50's revival (again). The silouette is very big, billowy skirts (INCLUDING TULLE) cinched in at the waist and lots and lots of pretty floral fabrics. As I mentioned last week, Prada is at the helm with her amazing resort wear label which debut's on the Paris catwalk in September. But Gucci, Lanvin, Escada, Chanel and Dior have all embraced it as well. Closer to home Karen Walker, Akira and Alex Perry have produced some beautiful 50's inspired pieces as well.
