Deep in the Heart of fashion blog, Prabal Gurung for Target dressAlthough the weather is finally warming up in London, it’s still not completely warm enough to leave the house without a jacket.  Because of this I like dressing up a cute spring floral dress with my favorite leather jacket.  Not only is it necessary with the fluctuating temperatures throughout the day but it also adds a bit of an edge to otherwise feminine floral pattern.  Deep in the Heart of fashion blog, Prabal Gurung for Target dress Deep in the Heart of fashion blog, Prabal Gurung for Target dress Deep in the Heart of fashion blog, Prabal Gurung for Target dress Deep in the Heart of fashion blog, Prabal Gurung for Target dress Deep in the Heart of fashion blog, Prabal Gurung for Target dress Deep in the Heart of fashion blog, Prabal Gurung for Target dress~Outfit~

Example Birkin BagPart two of the Festival des Metiérs exhibition of the Hermès craftspeople shows how some of the leather workmanship is done to create a Birkin bag, and also some snapshots of engravers techniques to making the plates which are used to print scarves.  One thing that was said during the presentation on scarf printing that really resonated with me was that before Hermès is a house of luxury, they are a house of quality, and the Festival des Metiérs exhibition was an example of just that.
