Giambattista Valli F/W 12 Topshop Shilo Strap Raffia Platforms
Season after season, year after year, fashionistas both young and old make the bi-annual pilgrimage to the holy lands (New York, London, Milan and Paris) for the runway collections that will shape the face of fashion for the coming season. Perhaps due to some rather outlandish fashions, outlandish price tags, or a combination of both, the clothes, shoes and accessories that make their way down the catwalk rarely make their way into our closets. Fortunately, there are amazing interpretations of high design that takes trends from runway to reality.
