Louis Vuitton F/W 2012/13 Collection/ Swirl Cakes 1st Year Anniversary

LOUIS VUITTON F/W 12/13
Upcoming fashion trend is being further retrograded. We had the 1980's, then the recent 1950's, now lets time warp back to the 1920's and 30's. Louis Vuitton F/W 12/13 collection revisited the "hard chic" and "feminine flutters", which made that era uniquely distinct than any other time line in fashion history.  Elbow length gloves and cloche hats were used and were something not to be neglected for this theme. Instead of excessive butterfly and banjo sleeves however, well tailored shoulders and structured ends were given to highlight non-antiquated designs, embracing modern women and power in femininity. 
Louis Vuitton 12/13 Men's collection (shown earlier this year) was also astonishing. Again, reviving the 30's look adding twists of current innovative ideas to produce a modern style.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWIRL CAKES
Binzento Vincente was invited to Swirl Cakes' 1st Year Anniversary Party at Ubu Lounge past weekend. Swirl Cakes is a YYC custom cakes and cupcakes shop where the owner/baker Lynnette McDonald creates one of a kind cakes upon requests for her clients.
Ruby Elle & Binzento Vincente

Lynnette started making cakes 10 years ago, and now have become more and more skilled with fine details on each piece. This was shown at the event, where she specially made a New York fashion inspired mult-layered chandelier cake. Each layer was decorated with personal memoir of herself. The top finished with sugar ice cubes and champaign bottle, which looked very realistic.
