Edwardiana.

The romance of the Edwardian era is something completely undeniable. Steam travel, charming literature and the motor car, ballroom dancing and an era when a thirst for knowledge and a love of the new became encompassed by the traditional views and innocence of earlier years. Followed by the roaring twenties as hem lines became shorter, and silhouettes less exaggerated it seems to me that this was the last time true elegance was fully embraced in the fashion world. I adore the modern trends that grace the catwalk and bring something entirely new to fashion, but there’s always been something desirable about the delicate detailing and layers of fabric that were so popular in the Edwardian era.
 
 

This autumn/winter the catwalk seemed to embrace the past and present to create some of the most inspired ensembles I’ve seen. Firstly the Baroque era and now the Edwardian, both with modern twists that throw the elegance of days gone by in to our modern world. Louis Vuitton, Giles and Burberry led the way, with high necklines, low hems and beautiful texture mixes.

  1. The red outfit where the model is holding a rose and wearing that big hat is my favorite! :) The hat is awesome. I wonder how she can see?
