Spring Highlight: Rei Kawabuko and the MET Gala

Aside from warmer weather, cute revamps of my room, new trends, and being able to eat popsicles in public without getting the odd eye (I eat popsicles in the winter too, don’t judge), the MET Gala is one of my favorite parts of Spring.

Fashion is not just about what people wear, but also how they live- how they shape themselves to interact with the world around them. It is interdisciplinary. The combination of all these differences is what makes Manchester seem like another universe.

Spring Trends that are Decidedly NOT Floral

So much of spring fashion focuses on florals (see: The Devil Wears Prada’s famous line by Miranda Priestly – “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.”). Don’t get me wrong; floral prints really are wonderful, but what about the days when a bright and happy floral top just doesn’t feel right?
