Calgary Fashion Jobs – Oriental Express

For centuries, the western world has taken inspiration from the Orient. The unique and opulent fabrics, textures and prints have long been revered.

Posen, Michael Kors and Marchesa have all used this inspiration in their collections. The mixture of black, blues, and golds have all been incorporated seamlessly with ornate flower-based patterns. Also, the use of silks and flowing materials are the perfect compliment for hot summer weather. Since Oriental fashion is dramatic on its own, it is usually better to pair a piece with more neutral colors or designs. For those of you who take chances with your outfits, you can pair multiple Oriental pieces together, but do so with caution. You don’t want your gorgeous outfit to look as though you are going to a costume party. This summer, fashion has taken its inspiration from the East, and if you choose to go along with the trend, you’ll be the perfect picture of Oriental elegance.
