Autumn/Winter 17 trends May 27, 2017 10:41
Whats trending on the runway...
Saying goodbye to Summer is always hard, but if you can find comfort in one thing, it's that there are so many fresh trends that you can try this Autumn. The most apparent trend that we’ve seen a rise in is in the sleeve department.
If you look at Celine’s AW ‘17/’18 ready to wear collection you’ll notice that throughout the collection a lot of emphasis has been placed on the sleeves. From oversized sleeves to little button details Celine shows us that a good sleeve can make all the difference.
You can view the full collection here
This is also seen in local Aussie designer Anna Quan’s Resort 18 collection, which just showed at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (watch the full show here.) The oversized sleeve detail combined with the unique designs of her shirts takes the classic shirt to a whole new level. She even shows you how you how you can wear your shirt as a one shouldered top or turn two shirts in to one (click here to view the full looks)
Other trends that we’ve seen creep up this autumn is power dressing (and by this we mean tailoring at its finest.)
Take for instance Bec and Bridge, while the collection that showed at MBFW had its signature rebellious feminine pieces, this collection saw the rise in structured ruffled pieces and like Celine and Anna Quan also placed a lot of emphasis in its sleeves. (View the full collection here)
Another brand that combines sleeve detailing with amazing tailoring is Misha Collection. The sophisticated structured body shapes of these garments combined with an eye-catching element in the sleeves make for an understated stylish look that you can complete with a statement pouch.
The key with picking the right bag to go with this outfit is to go with something that doesn’t overpower the outfit. So depending on the accessories you have in mind (if you’re thinking of something a little bold with the Larissa blazer dress) pull back with a classic pouch like the Gucci printed coated canvas leather pouch
Or if you’re thinking of simply pairing the dress with minimal jewelry add a pop of colour to finesse and complete your look (our Valentino would be the perfect addition to finish your look)

A pop of pink with Samantha Jade March 27, 2016 17:44
We had the pleasure of styling one of Australia's most popular and upcoming pop stars Samantha Jade.
Samantha Jade rocked our Balmain Crepe Tuxedo Dress for the Good Friday Appeal, the pop princess sent the media into a frenzy when she posted a photo to her fans on Instagram wearing our gorgeous Balmain number.
Samantha Jade is known for her risqué dress sense and we were delighted to style her for such an important event which was all for a good cause.
This dress has made headlines by Kim Kardashian and a number of celebrities, making this dress the hottest and most sought after number. The I am Finesse team are so excited that we can make this so accessible to all of our girls.
Samantha Jade performed her new song "Always" which had our whole office bopping to the track. Living such a busy lifestyle Samantha has recently joined the crew on Home & Away.
The new gig will have all of Australia glued to the TV as she plays a character that is far from the real Samantha Jade and will have the audience captured with suspense.
Join us in wishing Samantha Jade all the success and support her by purchasing her new single on iTunes.

There is something about BALMAIN January 27, 2016 20:45
By far one of the most recognisable designers across the globe, Balmain is a certain stand out Haute Couture fashion house that was founded by Pierre Balmain. Since under the reign of the amazing Olivier Rousting there has been an added edge to the fashion house with luxe unique pieces worn by celebrities across the globe.
Today, couture is a luxury almost only available to celebrities. Balmain had always set extremely high standards for couture. He believed in fashion that exuded elegance and simplicity and would stand the test of time and created pieces that would universally celebrate the human form. His aesthetic was always to create easy and glamorous looks that radiated style without being flashy or ostentatious.
We are obsessed with the latest pieces and are so excited to make Balmain accessible to the everyday woman. We are so privileged and delighted to be bringing Australia exclusive pieces for hire that are not available anywhere in Australia.
One thing we can promise is a great first impression, and first impressions last. The luxe materials and fabrics ooze style and elegance, Balmain does not disappoint. Embroidery, quilting, leather, pearls, cross-stitched roses, military accents, ornate pearls... The list just goes on and on. If you do not believe in love at first sight you will after you feast your eyes on his incredible and unique dresses. Once you have experienced Balmain you will appreciate true Haute Couture.
Enquire about our try on service and be prepared to be amazed. You will not regret it, we promise!
