Spanish revival

The Spanish culture is proving a strong influence on spring/ summer 2010 trends.

Romantic ruffles dominate for dresses, with bold and rich colours and decorating necklines and embellishments creating construction and a layered format. The elegantly modern dresses are kept low key with minimal accessories, the focus is made from the soft volume and shape accentuating the waist and hips.

The gleaming Velvet is worked into a contemporary bustier dress shape for the ultimate party frock, whilst viscose and silk is gives the most luxurious and high shine option giving a feminine summer look.

I love these photos and I love the Spanish influence on fashion.

Thanks for sharing Winnie. :)

To answer your question: Yes, there are TONS of forever21 in LA. Some of them are HUGE. Be sure to check out the one in Old Town Pasadena when you're down here. The weather is starting to get really hot, so dress lightly. :)
