April Banbury Designs Rocks Cannes Film Festival

05/30/2012

Cannes Film Festival...
This was like no place I'd ever been before, the elite of the elite surrounded me! A supreme class of fashion, fast cars and the best parties on the planet!
So...
I was extremely lucky to be one of the 200 people to get invited to Kanye Wests Film Premier - Cruel Summer!
After strutting it down the red carpet (on a sureal bubble) in my own design with Mr West, Kim Kardashian and Jay-Z I met the lovely Christa who is California's TOP blogger. She approached me adoring the gown I was wearing.
Check out the lovely write up she done on my dress, she quotes "Our favourite dress of the night was this April Banbury design"

Lazy Summer's S/S 2012 Inspiration

 
S/S 12 Inspirations

After coming across this beautiful mood board created by Paul Smith for his S/S collection I was instantly inspired by his delicate colour palette, feminine images and summer fun. This was the beginning of my creation- my latest S/S collection.


This year I was inspired by lightweight summery fabrics such as chiffon's, cotton and silks. I wanted to create a mixture of elegant evening wear and effortless day wear..
Here are some images I found which became the basis of my collection. I love the airy and soft feel they have with a vintage chic edge. I translated these feelings into beautiful dresses...
