Today I want to talk about the biggest fashion event in Latvia, Fashion Week which takes place twice a year – in spring and autumn.
The 20th RIGA FASHION WEEK will take place in the capital of Latvia from April 1 till 5, 2014. The good news are that the big day is almost here.
I have to say that the fashion collections are rich and offer unique and original fashion masterpieces that will pleasantly surprise any fashionista.
I want to share with you some of my favorite latvian designers, brands and their new collections.
One of the most prominent and popular latvian brands of apparel and accessories. The brand is famous for its experiments with knitwear. And, of course, flax – the favourite material for fashion designer – became one of the symbols for ANNA LED. A lot of handwork is involved in each product making it unique and exquisite.
Spring/Summer 2014 collection is inspired by the contrasting mix of the 90's simplicity and rich textures of the 20s. New Anna Led SS collection is roughly divided into 2 looks - Resort clothes and a summer City Smart look. Soft neutral colors like white, beige, pink versus bright notes like blue, dark purple and green.
