The collections shown during the first day of Milan fashion week used colorful pink, yellow, blue and green probably in an effort to fight the current grim economic mood. The same trend was noticed also at Madrid and London fashion weeks.
Minimalistic silhouettes by Prada, Mediterranean chic from Armani, original jeans by Dolce & Gabbana, urban rock by Just Cavalli - they all were in bright colours.
Every little girl’s dream is to become a princess when she grows up. This dream comes true with Dolce Vita, a collection designed by Polia Milanova. This stylish collection of 30 wedding and formal dresses provokes the fantasy with sheer, gauzy and discreetly bared materials. The dresses are bare-back with deep slashes highlighting the femininity. Original ideas combining exclusive materials with elegant patterns and workmanship make the collection impressive and memorable. Colourful nuances of green, reseda, gold, coral, orange, beige, cappuccino and rum as well their non-standard combination give regal look, splendour and romantic sense.
With a specially designed bridal dress by designer Polia Milanova married Silvia Todorova, the creator and manager of the Bulgarian fashion portal www.fashion.bg & www.fashion.net.
The dress is of two parts - corset made of french lace cordon with Swarovski stones, garnished with roses of crystal organza, and the bottom part is voluminous, type "princess" made of american mat satin and italian crystal organza, asymatrically stitched and decorated with roses.
