Behind the scenes at This Week In Fashion Shoot: Mermaid Trend

A couple of weeks ago we did a shoot in Liverpool to show you lovely peeps one of the hottest Spring/Summer trends, known to us as the ‘mermaid trend’.  The catwalks of Givenchy and Chanel were full of shimmering irridescent colour with mermaid like sequins and pearl effects. This trend is all about expressing the colours of the ocean.  It’s delicate, it’s glamorous, it’s the romantic side of the sea.  Don’t be fooled into thinking this is an evening look, a trophy jacket can liven up your office look even with a plain t-shirt underneath.  When it comes to evening you can go all out with amazing makeup and accessories.

The trend is all about the sea-spray colours like lilacs, blues, greens and metallics.  Sparkle plays a huge role in this trend so invest in embellished necklines, bodycon dressing with panels of water shimmering metallics and sequin shift dresses

Here we see Rihanna and Florence rocking this look and looking as gorgeous as ever.


I managed to get a few behind the scenes shots………

Our shoot styled 3 different ways to wear this trend.  What do you think of the final photos?  I think our model Coco looks fab!  x
