Fashion ideas come from many different places, don’t they? A magazine, something we see on television or online, and for me they often come from the numerous fashion shows I’ve attended over the years. One of my favorite designers is Custo Barcelona, whose point of view in fashion is all about color as well as happy feel-good energy! This week I want to share with you some photographs I snapped for his Spring/Summer 2012 collection. One of the reasons I like to show collections from past years is to illustrate the idea that fashion doesn’t change overnight—instead it can change in slow increments over a period of time. When you take a gander at the slideshow below you’ll notice many trends are still viable, and many more that could be what’s happening right now!

Just about this time of year when the end of winter still seems like a long way off, I feel the need to see more color. Not only do I want to see color in the sleeping nature of the landscape, but I also want it in the choice and color of the garments I wear every day. It’s a no-brainer to wear color when the weather is bright and wonderful, but it seems more difficult to do it when the gray, black and brown of the sunless season takes over our closets too. A pop of color here and there during these bleak months can literally bring you happiness - I kid you not! There’s lots of ways to bring some color into the winter wardrobe. Case in point, I recently came across some photographs I took at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week a few years ago which illustrate the idea of color as an antidote to the cold-weather blues. These photos are from the 2012 Autumn/Winter Collection from fabulous fashion designer, Rebecca Minkoff. Her streetwise, wearable designs are realistic and that’s what I like about her take on style for today’s woman. Let’s take a look and discuss shall we?
