Having done fashion design & production at uni, I know first hand how hard it is to get noticed and get out there. Having a place where you can showcase your designs and collections is just a dream come true, so for those who are lucky enough to be on a brilliant website called Boticca it can be the perfect place to get started.
Boticca is an online marketplace edited by a team of fashion experts, designers, stylists, editors, bloggers and collectors, who illustrate the culture, stories and inspiration behind the collections on the site. They aim to source the very best up and coming designers and put them in a place where you can discover unique pieces. They also have a great selection of guest posts where celebrities and curators pick their favourite items from the site. The site is also really popular amongst many celebs and there’s a fab gallery filled with pictures wearing their key pieces.
So on to my favourite designer from the site, Alex Shu.
I absolutely love these prints. They remind me a lot of the inspiration i had for my final major project. The colours in the scarf are easy to work with and can be teamed with a variety of items to make your outfit pop! They're really on trend righT now and i can see the high street being filled with designs similar in Spring/Summer 2012.
I think the website is brilliant and I'd love to hear which designers on Boticca you love and your thoughts on the website itself!
