“Trésor Brillant”: Mystifying Brilliance by Vlisco

Now this is by far the best collection I’ve seen from Vlisco. Just like its name “Tresor Brilliant”, this collection is brilliantly A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! She has taken the “ankara” to a whole new level by incorporating other fabrics to birth the modern luxury designs. Who knew they could be so versatile?

Here’s what she had to say in her Ad Campaign:
 Shimmering radiance creates a vision of pure richness, drawing full attention to a mysterious woman wandering in the night. Gracefully flowing fabrics weave an enigmatic story, determined to uncover where her journey is taking her. Strutting through the dim setting of the colonnade as it merges with a twinkling glow, the diamond-inspired designs take on an almost tangible shine and add the perfect touch of glamour, as she continues towards her destination, where she divinely takes the stage. An overwhelming sense of heroism seizes her the moment she becomes the centre of attention on stage, silhouetted by spotlights illuminating her sophisticated attire of dreamy designs

Beauty Trend: The Ombre` Treatment

The ombre effect is no longer used strictly in fabrics as we’re seeing it in sunglasses, hair and makeup. It’s being incorporated into anything and everything. At first it was ombre hair and before we could get used to that, voila!….it was All ombre All the time!

Hair

Hair was among the first to adopt the ombre trend and is still fashionable to date. The trend features darker, more natural hues at the roots with gradually-dyed lightening at the ends creating a very beautiful and exotic look. As you can see below, it’s been spotted on a number of celebrities and you can do it too.

 

 Lips

 Tired of a plain old single lipstick color? Well tire no more and experiment with different colors to create an ombre look of your desire.

You can head over to youtube for tutorials on how to achieve some of these looks.

Nails 

Ombre nails have lingered in the fashion world for a minute now. It’s a fun spin to standard manicure and would be fun for special occasions or if you just want to stand out.

There are two common ombre nail arts. See below:

The nail polish fades from darker-to-lighter shade or vice versa

The colors fade from a darker shade to a lighter shade as you progress on each nail.

Will you be trying any of these trends?
