Remember Baroque?

March 20, 2013

One of the few things that I learnt, was trend forecasting for the next year. Here's one of the forecast that I did for next year's trend (2013-2014) the Baroque. Its so dramatic, grandeur, glam and mysterious at the same time. Above all, Baroque was my most favourite era. I remembered that unconditionally pick it as my theme on some subject LoL.

AFAIK, it started from the Dolce & Gabbana's last year or maybe 2years ago fashion show where they had the whole black look with gold baroque embroidery (well actually, far before them we had Alexander McQueen's last collection that resemble the baroque look) and ever since then it starts developing until this year. Again, Dolce & Gabbana lunched the baroque inspired look but with more colour in it like cheerful red for instance. And some designer start lunching their own baroque inspired starting from this Spring/Summer ready-to-wear we had designer like Carolina Herrera and Ralph Lauren, then came the Couture we had Valentino and this Autumn/Winter we had Marchesa (which collection remind me of McQueen's) and Valentino. Of course that's not all, its just some of it.

Since we can spot Baroque not only in fashion but in accessories, lifestyle, interior and such I think that it gonna be a huge trend next year in which, I'm uber happy about it!

Less talking and lemme show you what I mean! (btw, this picture especially the people was from this year's)
