Top Trends from the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

 While the weather forecast predicts colder days to come, the Mercedes Fashion Week has us counting down the days for Summer. Key trends stood out in a number of shows, leaving us excited for warmer days, in preparations for what will be hitting the stores and more importantly our wardrobes.

Here are the top trends that stood out for us here at Pica Lela.

Shoulder to Shoulder

Australian Designers ‘shouldered’ together in proving that bare shoulders, is a prominent trend this summer.  This was highlighted through various styles mainly the cold shoulder and off-the-shoulder look.
