Colour blocking couture
The colour blocking trend shows no sign of slowing this Spring/Summer season with red carpets everywhere clashing with celebrities adorned in crayola shades. The bold look was a popular one on the Spring / Summer 2011 catwalk as featured by Issa, Haider Ackermann and Julien Macdonald.
If it was bright, bold and block colour then it was the pick of the day at the CFDA Fashion Awards earlier this week. Grab your shades- there’s nothing pale and interesting about this lot…
Jessica Alba wasn’t letting a little thing like pregnancy get in the way of her following fashion, as she teamed coral and purple in this elegant Diane Von Fusternberg maxi.
Model Chanel Iman looked absolutely stunning in this Max Azria cut out turquoise gown, the eye-popping block colour fabulous against her glowing skin tone.
Tunisian model, Kenza Fourati works this daring Marc Bouwer maxi to a tee. The sapphire hue teamed with her pale complexion and rich red lips shows that she was born to wear block colour.

Take for instance Edinburgh fashion brand; Teaataunties.
