Montreal designer --- valerie dumaine.

I recently came across a great Montreal-based designer, Valerie Dumaine, and I have to say that her spring/summer 2011 collection is making me crave for those warm temperatures more than ever...


I will try not to spiel about everything that I like from each piece in Valerie Dumaine's S/S collection, but I can't help it, I am finding unique details here-and-there from each design that I can't stop obsessing over. My favorites? I would choose all of these looks, but narrowing it down, I would choose the first two looks that were photographed during Montreal Fashion Week. That bodysuit... I am absolutely obsessed with everything about it, from the detailing on shoulder, to the way the stripes are strategically designed on the sides of the waist to give the most flattering illusion.  Valerie definitely has a keen eye for body-complimenting designs. On the other hand, I have been on the search, season after season, for that perfect white slightly-dressy summer dress, and I think I have found the one. The complete uniqueness of the dress is what convinced me that this was it. The gathering of the material... the sheer white fabric... perfection. With all of that said, I am completely ready for spring to come because I need a break from dressing for the cold and snow!

So which look is your favorite?

Yep I think that the leotard is my fave too! It would look hot with a really brightly coloured skirt like bright coral or something :-)
