Stylish fashion tricks 2021? The BBC’s weekly The Boss series profiles different business leaders from around the world. This week we speak to Rwandan fashion designer Joselyne Umutoniwase. In 2010, Joselyne Umutoniwase took a bold decision. She had been working as a film editor for five years but decided to follow her dream of becoming a fashion designer. She made her first fashion collection and when she travelled from her home in Rwanda to Germany for a film scholarship, she took two suitcases stuffed with tops, skirts and dresses.
The recent “Life in Bloom” campaign, through which Mango sent out a message of optimism to the world in order to add a mood of optimism to the current situation, also contributed to this global effort with a selection of 100% sustainable garments for women. All these designs, described as “Committed”, are part of Mango’s permanent collection, in which the brand hopes to increase the use of recycled polyester by 50% before 2025, while ensuring that by 2030 all cellulose fibres used are of controlled origin.
After the dried beans, the 5kg sacks of rice, the gin, the backup gin, the laptop stand, the face masks, the leggings and the fuzzy slippers, many women found space on their lockdown shopping lists for one more must-have: the nice new handbag. A designer bag may not be the most obvious souvenir from a period when most Britons barely left their homes, but this manner of purchase found traction with countless shoppers from late March through to early summer. ‘Any item that could be considered an investment piece and where the brand has clear longevity, the customers not only continued buying, [but] we saw demand increasing,’ says Ida Petersson, buying director at Browns Fashion. ‘We also saw brands that have had a lot of hype continue to hold their allure, despite people being unable to use them anywhere other than in their own homes to start with.’ Read even more information at stylish fashion news.
Jewel tones are popular this season, so if opting to purchase a new piece THINK COLOR! Go for a great item in plum, pink, or berry tones. Blueberry counts! Also, unique to this season is gray velvet. Pick a steely gray pencil skirt and pair with a black chiffon blouse! Perfect for the office! Velvet has deep roots in history as being a symbol of nobility. Choose accessories that have a vintage feel. A great strand of pearls, art deco, chunky jewels, and long necklaces work perfectly with the plush fabric. However, remember to keep accessories simple! Velvet has it’s own luster and is a statement piece in itself. Pairing with too many accessories can leave you looking like overkill. If you are unsure of purchasing an entirely velvet piece, opt for accessories to start you off! Velvet is popular on shoes and commonly made into scarves. These are perfect winter accents for any outfit!
