The Year of the Royals- Fall 2013 Fashion

THE YEAR OF THE ROYALS

Fall 2013, once again, resembles Fall 2012 classic apparel only with a Royal whimsical note, rich vibrant hues in fitted womanly silhouettes and Hollywood glitz.  The main artistic ingredient this year to the classics is a dash of Cinderella or Princess thrown in with mix in drama, sparkle and elegance. Send in the twinkle, add in a bit of star power and prepare for a fall like no other.  Medieval knights, renaissance ladies and King and Queen attire equals warm cashmere, long pants, skirts, dresses and lux coats in quality fabrics that last the test of time.  In other words, in Fall 2013 spend wisely, or fairy dust current apparel with  glimmering embellishments for an artistic and storybook photograph.  Raise up the golden gem encrusted goblet for a salute to the fashion industry for this creative and Royal moment.
