Cape Town Fashion Week 2014: Michelle Ludek / TART

Friday evening saw me attending Cape Town Fashion Week 2014 for a look at the latest designs by Michelle Ludek and TART.

I always love this little fashion-focused night out as it’s a world I’m not usually privvy to. It usually makes for an entertaining and educational evening and it’s not often that a fashion show comes to town! I managed to snap a few pics of the show but my photography skills were put to the test in the dark room with very fast walking models, so please excuse some of the more blurry ones!

I took a friend along with me to add to the fun and we loved watching the two shows. Michelle is a friend of ours so we were particular keen to see what she had been working so hard on for the past few months and we were not disappointed.

Her latest collection was inspired by a jungle theme and I particularly liked the blue and green colour scheme and “wild” print that was worked into her collection.

I loved a very pretty white cutout overlays that she used with a few different outfits and her relaxed dresses, both mini and maxi, are always worthwhile – I have a few in my wardrobe and after seeing this collection I definitely plan on adding a few more soon!

Be sure to check out the unique jewellery – created by another talented Ludek, Michelle’s sister Belinda!

Another winner is this navy dress

Then it was time for TART, who shared the show with Michelle Ludek. This collection was all about the “radiant orchid” colours of purple and lime green along with plenty of black.

After watching both of these shows, I’m definitely inspired to bring more colour and pattern into my wardrobe – I tend to stick with neutrals and hardly ever venture into prints so I’m feeling it’s time to start experimenting a bit!

What do you think? Do you wear colour and / or pattern? Any tips are welcome so please leave a comment below!
