(Styling & Photography by AldonaB)
When putting a look together for an event such as DinnerXDesign, there’s much room to be creative, to play with colour, texture and pattern, and to really showcase your personal style in a fun and artistic way – just as the event itself.
I had the pleasure of putting together five looks to serve as inspiration for the upcoming event, and I did this with the help of some amazing local boutiques in Kensington; Purr, Splash of Fashion, Brooklyn Clothing Co., and James & Dickson Clothiers, with beautiful hair and makeup by Swizzlesticks SalonSpa.
As a stylist I love supporting local as much as possible, especially when these boutiques are able to provide some really amazing and unique pieces. What I really wanted to showcase for DinnerXDesign is that you can go in a variety of directions, be it dressy, funky or a bit more casual. I did this by incorporating denim, tailored jackets, a bow tie, a variety of colours, statement accessories and of course, the little black dress.
