Dorothy Virginia Margaret Juba who is also known as Dorothy Horan was one of the most prominent model during 50’s. Best known as Dovima, she captivated hearts and minds of the best designers and photographers of that decade. She had it all: grace, beauty, elegance, aristocratic posture and BEAUTY…have I already mentioned it?? As Richard Avedon once said that Dovima was “the most remarkable and unconventional beauty of her time” and I can’t agree more. She was one of the high-paid (if not the highest) models in 50’s and was admired by millions. Dovima ended her career in 1962 at the age of 35 years as she didn’t want “didn’t want to wait until the camera turned cruel.”
I must confess that I’m literally in love with every single item ever created by Johanna Ortiz. I’ve started to follow the development of this brand about 3 seasons ago and with every collection I see flawless perfection in cut, fabrics and silhouettes. Colombian designer creates extremely beautiful pieces which are a true celebration of femininity. Johanna’s collections are a perfect mix of voluminous ruffles and perfectly cut silhouettes. Johanna Ortiz Resort 2017 dazzles with its elegant and flattering shapes. Without further ado, let’s enjoy the breathtaking collection.
Admit that it is very challenging to look decent when it is freezing outside. You always end up choosing something one: looking stylish or staying warm. Well, I still prefer my health over the fashion and style but I found a compromise and it’s name is Sorel. Sorel is Canadian brand that was found in 1962 and it, without any doubts, creates the best winter boots for every taste.
That awkward moment when the new trend is on the rise but you can’t wait for it to disappear. Fishnet and denim…..what do you say?
Have you ever thought that 80’s fashion was someone’s joke? 80’s were full of neon colours, shoulder pads, a lot of denim, baggy clothes and exaggerated details. Well, everything was over the top and bold, everything required colour and volume: make-up, accessories, clothes and hair. I have my favourite 80’s trends (colour blocking, high waist pants, over-sized tops) and very excited to re-wear them nowadays , however I’m really happy that most of them are gone. Designers attempt to reincarnate 80’s from season to season and I must say I like the mix of the trends from the different decades. Anyway, no matter if you like 80’s fashion or not, it will have its place in our hearts forever. Get ready for more forgotten 80’s trends brought back to live!!!
