Well if you feel the wanderlust
Just grab a car or hop a bus
In every town there’s excitement to be found
So much is happening
Don’t miss the joy of spring
The world’s in love just look around
Spring fever comes to everyone
Spring fever, it’s time for fun
Get up, get out spring is everywhere
Florals have been a classic ageless trend which is always around the corner whenever Spring season breaks in. It exudes the freshness, colors and closeness to the Mother Nature. Inspirations are derived from countless flora surrounding us , from ditsy daisies to bold carnations, from exotic lotus to heady fragrance emanating sweet peas.
The history of floral in fashion stems way back to the Egyptian period. Real flowers were used in garlands and wreaths or worn as a single flower or leaf. The Greeks also used flowers for adornment and in the Roman Period floral inspiration was worked into royal crowns.
It is thought that the first floral printed fabrics originated from the East, with ornate designs sold to Europeans at very high prices. It was a symbol of status to wear a floral pattern, unlike its commonplace on the high street today.Gradually the European’s figured the weaving techniques and started creating ornate floral designs on luxurious textiles.
So let’s have a look at the Spring Summer 2014 trend – Florals
White and floral mix never go out of Fashion and Style. They both together are a must have, I would say.
Venexiana’s Spring Summer 2014 Collection just revived back the memories of luxurious drapes mixed with florals. Venexiana is known for its exquisite fabrics, dainty ornate embellishments and flows. What better way to pep up some spirits after a hot languid summer afternoon than these flowy breezy maxis?
A tea dress, a Short flowy dress, a midi skirt and Kaftan’ish dress . All had tangerine orange, peach and Whites as the base for Spring Collection. All I could associate this with would be fragrant sweet peachy peonies.
The Indian interpretation of florals is captivating. We Indians definitely know how to use the burst of colors. Anupama Dayal showcased the best collection of florals for Spring Summer 2014 – Wills Fashion Week. The usage of colors and fabrics was oh-so-pick-me-up-now kinds.
This surreal powder blue lehenga with floral prints makes a perfect evening wear for a friend’s spring wedding . Again an exotic piece by Anupama Dayal, Yes , I seem to be smitten by her floral collection.
The Hollywood A-listers are flaunting this trend with new age designs in Black and white. Katy Perry and Rita Ora at the Chanel Spring Summer 2014 Show.
Kayley Cuoco aka Penny cuts quite a striking picture in this floral gown. Though I must admit it would look better in a costume themed party, but well its Penny, everything’s forgiven .
How can you go without mentioning Blake Lively on a fashion blog ? She and Freida Pinto both looked fresh and bubbly with their florals in the front row for Michael Kors Spring Summer 2014 runway show.
The floral trend is not necessarily a floral print , but also a floral embroidered work. The beautiful white sheer fabric has exquisite floral embroidery and Neha Dhupia carries it with such an Elan.
And there we go overboard on anarkalis 🙂 Floral embroidery in beautiful spring shades put together on our very own “Anarkali”. Sonam Kapoor adorns this brilliantly hand crafted piece from Abu Jani collections.
And finally , Anupama dayal seals the floral marks with the fashionista Sonam Kapoor. The vibrant florals make an interesting base for the earthy indigo jacket styled together. A fabulous outfit put together for Summer afternoons 🙂
