Little Black Dress

One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress. -Karl Lagerfeld

Do you know the moment when you “have nothing to wear” in your entire wardrobe and even after you try on every piece of clothing, nothing seems to work?

Well, this is how my morning had been going and I only had a couple of hours before the fashion show.

I knew something was missing from my wardrobe.

I grabbed my purse, quickly put my windbreaker jacket on and slid into my trainers and went on an adventure hunt to find the perfect little black dress. 

After looking through a few clothes on a crowded rack in Zara, I found a ruffle dress and tried it on.

It was a perfect fit, and the interesting touch with the ruffle details at the sleeves and neckline made me purchase it.

When I arrived back home, I jumped in the shower, applied makeup while eating breakfast and pinned my hair up in a tight ponytail.

My room looked like a hurricane had just passed.

I made sure I had my fashion show tickets with me and I ran out the door, ready to pretend the sidewalk was my catwalk.

For accessories, I added a pair of gold, statement earrings that ties the whole outfit together.

It was a sunny day in London, so I also took a pair of sunglasses with me, which gave the outfit a mysterious look.

I also wore my favourite trench coat because even though the sun was shining, it was still a crisp Autumn day.

The Carla Fernandez Fashion in Motion show at the V&A museum was a unique experience.

The Mexican designer presented five collections, accompanied by a live chorus.

The lights suddenly turned off in Raphael Gallery and the models took over the catwalk.

Some of the pieces showcased in the presentation were symbolic of the Mexican heritage, while some were standing up for social justice.

Here are a few highlights:
