Designers want me to dress like Spring, in billowing things. I don’t feel like Spring. I feel like a warm red Autumn.
I was simply obsessed with the idea of wearing sneakers with a floaty silk dress. Because I am a true doer, I converted my fantasy into reality this LFW and rolled up in a demi couture gown by Omar Mansoor and my ombre red to burgundy Nikes.
I am yet to meet a fashion lover who isn’t partial to dresses which synchronise and dance with the wind. It doesn’t matter if you are shooting from the latest Nikon DSLR or from an old iPhone, they always look very magazine editorial-y. Of course, just an evening gown wouldn’t do, I needed an unexpected punch and the sneakers worked perfectly.
I wasn’t the only one who thought the outfit worked. I was lucky enough to get papped and end up being the street style cover girl on Yahoo Lifestyle. More in my press section.
