I was literally obsessed with this bomber jacket and continually stroked it all night long
Marijana and myself
Last night I had the absolute pleasure of attending the Tato and Memi A/W 2012 showings. It was my first ever showing so I was more than a little pleased to see that the ladies who organized the evening were not in fact big, scary monsters, but some of the loveliest girls on the face of this planet. I knew from the start that the evening was going to be successful due to the guest appearance made by some delicious Lindt macaroons, enough said right? Now it's pretty hard to top Lindt but somehow Marijana and Tanya, the designers of Tato and Memi, managed to do it rather successfully.
Their A/W collection titled 'Night Bird' is a stunningly created blur of lush silks, metallic entwined tweeds and a dazzling array of sparkles. When I spoke to Marijana she told me that the collection was inspired by her recent trip to Paris, and the impeccably well dressed people that reside there. As someone who travelled to Paris herself I can say most definitely that every single piece would not be out of place draped across a stylish Parisians back. My personal favourites were the cream tweed bomber jacket, the jersey dress with the amazing sequin sleeves or the more than amazing silk maxi dress with a floral pattern that the girls designed themselves! I'm always thoroughly impressed when people who are so incredibly talented can be so nice all at once, how they keep their egos from being monster size I'll never know, and it was really lovely to meet the designers and hear from them personally their inspiration behind the collection.
All in all, an absolutely amazing night, thanks to the girls from Tailormaid Communications and Tato and Memi for having me. I can't wait till next autumn so I can actually get my mitts on a few of these pieces!
