This is a throwback to September 2017 Paris Fashion Week. Japanese Designer Junko Shimada had both her daughter and grand daughter supporting her at her show. With a wonderful tree nestled on the catwalk and models wearing constructed leaves on their heads. My heart really melted though as I learnt that the whole tree inspiration came from a sweet drawing made by Junko’s adorable grand daughter whom I had the pleasure of meeting personally.
Junko Shimada herself is well over 70 but her designs never fail to have an incredibly modern, upbeat feel to them. The themes shown in September 2017 have started to appear in the shops. Take some inspiration for your Spring wardrobe as you see the lovely gingham designs. Huge feature of red and black. Sheer fabrics and lace also being themes that are paving the trend for Spring 2018.
Keep reading for a look at Spring vibes influenced by a grand daughter’s painting.
