Fashion Trends: Autumn / Winter fashion for mums on the go

Oct 19 2015

I love fashion and read magazines all the time showing amazing looking girls with perfect bodies displaying outfits I could only dream of, not just from the cost perspective but more importantly because I don’t have that figure and will never have it despite watching out what I eat and keeping fit.

Let’s face it! Normal mums on the go at school runs every day have to wear practical clothes, shoes and accessories. Nothing else would work. Surely we can dress up for parties and special occasions, but these are less frequent as we watch our social life disappear in front of our eyes.

I use this sentence as a spark to speak about one of the most enduring friendships, between two shining stars in the Fifties, Audrey Hepburn in cinema, and Hubert De Givenchy in fashion. They met by chance and remained friends for the rest of their lives.

Audrey Hepburn made a stunning debut in William Wyler’s smash hit Roman Holiday hitting the screen like a bomb. Some said: “This slim little person with the winged eyebrows and Nefertiti head and throat is the world’s darling”, just to give you an idea of what Audrey  has been since her very first steps in Hollywood. She was the real Hollywood’s sweetheart; on the other hand, Hubert de Givenchy was a young stylist preparing his very own first collections and was declared a real enfant-prodige in the French Fashion industry.
