Eva takes the catwalk
American actress Eva Longoria will have her first ever fashion show at New York Fashion Week in a couple of weeks’ time. Taking place on 13th September, Eva’s Eva Longoria Collection show will feature affordable styles designed by the petite actress herself. It has been rumoured she will take inspiration from her own style for the designs so we are expecting to see mini dresses with long trains strapless style and one-colour looks. Eva isn’t the first celebrity to present a collection at London Fashion Week, the actress will be following in the footsteps of tennis star Serena Williams, Kanye West , and of course Victoria Beckham. The show will streamed live on Facebook in real time so you can see it for yourself.

Get to the garden
By Sauce is launching a new capsule collection in boutiques across the UAE this week. The Girl in the Garden range features long dresses, printed kaftans and off-the-shoulder tops in light fabrics. All of the pieces are embroidered or printed with flower and leaf patterns and are perfect for wearing outside as the UAE weather finally started to cool down. Prices start at Dh450.
I love the new pre-fall collection from Massimo Dutti. The new collection has a cool seventies vibe with bold jumpsuits, high-waisted trousers and pussy-bow blouses all coming back from autumn. The colour palette includes mustard yellows and burnt orange hues which are perfect for next season. I can’t wait to shop there when the range launches in UAE stores later this month. Available at stores nationwide.
