Dressing In Style This Spring and SummerWritten by d'Italia
Spring Fashion has finally arrived in Melbourne! This year, throw out the shopping centre buys, and spoil yourself with a few specially tailored dresses that match the season’s colours and styles. The procedure is as simple as 1-2-3.
1. Choose a design and style! Be prepared for the upcoming Spring Racing Carnival days, the evening dinner parties, and the warm summer beach holidays. Pick a pretty design for each occasion – the floral print dresses for races, metallic flavoured gowns for dinners, and bright-on-pastel shaded frocks for the beach. 2. Pick the right fabric! Polyester creations are no longer the fashionable thing to wear; instead, all-natural silks, linens and cotton are the way to go. Find a store which sells completely natural fabrics. One recommendation is d’Italia, a fabric store located in Malvern, Victoria. It boasts a selection of designer fabric that is directly imported from Italy. Its range of silks, chiffons, georgettes, cotton and wool are completely natural and pure. 3. Accessorise! Dresses and gowns are rarely made of just one type of material. The design is often interspersed with accessories like French beads, and layers of silk and lace. d’Italia has a range of pure French lace direct from Europe. Its beads are all hand-sewn by seamstresses who specialise in couture. Tailored clothing, using the most natural fabrics, always lasts longer and feels better. So this spring and summer, look and feel your best with your customised wear. © Copyright | d'Italia
