The Fall 2012 runways brought a strong, powerful woman with a deliberate sensuality. Grounded in sartorial touches, elevated by sumptuous fabrics and rich embellishments of crystals and metals, her look is luxurious and impactful. The new silhouette is elongated with punches of volume. The colors range from vibrant and jewel-like, to dark moody shades of greens and earth tones.
The makeup is simple yet deliberate, hand selecting a feature to highlight with one color, like a sweep of copper across the lid. The simplicity plays the perfect counterpart to layers of tailored tweeds, leather and fur, romantic velvet and lace.
Saving African Elephants
Elephants are the planet’s largest living land mammals; they symbolize strength, wisdom and intelligence. Sadly, the threat to elephants from ivory poachers is greater than ever with an estimated 38,000 African elephants killed annually – a rate that left unchallenged would see elephants wiped out by 2025!
As adult elephants are poached for their ivory tusks, their babies are left behind, forgotten victims of the ivory trade. The David Sheldrick Wildlife
Trust (DSWT) exists to protect elephants and is best known for their pioneering work to rescue, rear and release back into the wild these innocent orphans of a barbaric trade.

Grasslands – an on trend green inspired by the color of the lush Savannah grass after the rainy season.
