At Images That Suit we stay true to our client focus providing a unique personalized shopping experience; a complimentary wardrobe consultation in the comfort of a private showroom and uninterrupted time with a stylist.

We are always evolving with client feedback and studying trends from around the world. We bring you a fall remastered to work in your everyday life bringing you not only wearability but quality and value.

We know that fashion can give a boost to a woman’s confidence. It can affect the way you carry yourself and the impact you have on others. It can change the way you feel about yourself and how you are perceived. We appreciate the confidence our clients express in us and work diligently to diligently to warrant that confidence.

The collections this season moved from wild to mild as always. These are the directional yet wearable style guides and trends we chose to breathe new life into your fall wardrobe.

  1. Androgyny gets a modern twist as menswear silhouettes and fabrics blend with feminine touches and chic accents of leather. This masculine feminine theme plays every season with a new twist always offering a sensual and complex aura.
  2. The 40’s and 50’s were the decades of choice from which designers drew inspiration. This resulted in focus on the waist, couture quality cuts and dark dramatic refinement in colour. It also meant the classic dress and suit got billed as hot runway fashion items. We can look forward to sleeveless dresses under our jackets, and stand-alone dresses with 3\4 and long sleeves.
  3. Leather, lace, shine, plaid, tweed, and flocking whether as trims or full garments were welcome and interesting fall wardrobe revitalizers.
  4. We most certainly embraced the colour directions for fall. Grey is being called fashion’s truest neutral for fall as designers felt going grey matters. From London to Milan, and Paris to New York Black was back and Navy and Royal Blue blazed the fashion trail, Mulberry, Bordeaux, really all wine hues poured with smooth elegance through the collections and Teal infused Greens teased black and brown.
  5. Fabrics were very interesting. Leather trims provide fascinating flashes of attitude, tweeds are yummy in the season’s new colours, houndstooth invigorates the sportswear scene in new and creative ways, colour blocking rises to new levels of interest incorporating prints as well as solid geometics and mini-checks and plaids created delectably refined blazers.
  6. The runways loved big, bold prints and large heritage florals, but taking a cue from our client’s preferences we opted to support the designers who reigned in their flamboyance a touch with animal print, soft florals, small and large geometrics, paisley, embossed lace motifs and complex mixed media designs.
  7. For those of us looking for Jean Therapy, a welcome remedy for casual days, we can look forward to dark colours incorporating the Mulberry, Bordeaux, Dark deep Green, Grey, Brown, Black and Ink. …But that’s only the beginning as texture in the form of flocking, lace and paisley embossing and subtle reptile gives us a new defining moment for casual wear.
  8. The Peplum entered the market in the spring, a 40’s trend; it is a flounce from the waist either attached to a top, attached to a skirt, or an integral part of a dress. Surprisingly after seeing it on different shapes of women and seeing it go forward for fall in a little sleeker and more sculptural way, I understand it’s intrigue. It is new and unique, hides the tummy, celebrates the female form and is a great alternative to a dress, or over a pair of pants or jeans.
  9. Sky high to flagrantly flat shoe and boot styles abound for fall. We think fashionable wearabilty: “these boots are meant for walking”.so our collections will include a Stuart Weitzman inspired 50\50 boot(half leather, half micro stretch) flat heel boot, leather flat heeled boots, stack heeled boots and booties, heeled loafers and high heeled oxfords which take menswear to new feminine heights and pointy toe pumps. The details of the shoes and boots are amazing; thicker tassels, thicker straps, heavier weaves, thicker lasts and soles, and interesting hardware and buckles. Collections were anchored with black and featured dark gray, deep green, rich brown, oxblood, bordeaux and blue.
  10. Creative describes knitwear for fall 2013, whether we talk cardigan or pullover. No longer just comfy, but rather luxurious, glamorous, edgy; with leather trims, printed or solid, colour blocked, cabled, iridescent, oversized or hugging your curves, chunky or thin, alluring or classic in all the glorious colours of the season.
  11. The statement necklace (either long or short) and the bold earring are the standout accessory pieces for the season…just the thing to elevate an outfit to outstanding. The trends for fall include; vintage Victorian, clean geometric shapes , a natural stone or coloured stone in a simple setting, a tribal look influenced by a variety of cultures, rose gold, mixed metals,and link chain.

We look forward to showing you our collections,
