COLOUR IT BRIGHT. LIKE MICHAEL KORS, DIANE von FURSTENBERG, ETRO...............get the look for less!

Heady shades of vibrant colour have hit the catwalks this season.

 Get ready to go colour crazy, in traffic stopping statement looks.

Here are my  HOT SHOT pick's for you this summer. 
Embrace the brights.........

 Michael Kors : Spring/Summer 2013



Michael Kors gives this advice to fashion students: work in retail, the best way to learn "how clothes are made, how clothes fit and also what kind of women wear what kind of clothes."

Diane von Furstenberg began in the fashion world in 1972, and by 1976, had sold millions of her signature wrap dress.
 She later re-introduced  the iconic dress in 1997, 
after re-launching her company.

 She gave female power and freedom to an entire generation by showing women how to "feel like a woman by wearing a dress".

The Italian label Etro started life a textile house in 1968 making stunning fabrics and intricate prints. 
It is still a  family-owned and operated design house with Veronica Etro at the helm designing the womenswear.

 Etro is always about beautiful dazzlingly printed pieces, luxurious  fabrics, and offbeat colour combinations.

There is something so delicious about the shading on this dress, 
that I just want to float down to cocktails on a 
balmy Mediterranean night. 
There is no better place to be doing this than
Positano on the Amalfi Coast. 

Staying up until the heady early hours of the morning, dining in one of Positano's panoramic sea edge restaurant's.

Then dancing the night away at Music on The Rocks, the legendary nightclub on the Spiaggia Grande beach.

YVES SAINT LAURENT La Laque Couture Tie & Dye nail polish (01 cool coat

Selfridges Says....

The master of colour all the way to the tip of the nails, Yves Saint Laurent has created a summer 2013 collection of must-have fashion statements for nails: La Laque Couture Tie & Dye nail polish. The Nail Artistry saga continues with this collection of colour-coordinated base and top coat duos. Although these nail polish shades do not give a traditional tie-dye finish as the name suggests, they give a nod to the shading effect of Modern Art's most brilliant pop trendsetters. Shake the bottle before applying to add a hint of colour, or apply without shaking for a subtle, graduated effect.

So brighten up your look.......Summer has arrived!
