Schueller de Waal Collection Spring-Summer 2018 Compulsory Shenanigans

Schueller de Waal is a Dutch independent fashion label which showed their 9th collection ‘Compulsory Shenanigans’ for Spring-Summer 2018, yesterday evening (Sept 6th) in Tower 4 of the World Fashion Center in Amsterdam. The designers, Rens de Waal and Philipp Schueller, went Big, Large and More! They set themselves the task to measure up to show like the huge and established fashion houses do; within, and embracing the limitations they have as a small and independent fashion label.”Serious fashion…not so serious” as Schueller de Waal stated.

THE FLOTUS FOOTWEAR FAILURE

THE FLOTUS FOOTWEAR FAILURE

Our Day is a good day when it becomes apparent to the world how important ‘fashion’ is. So yesterday we actually had a good one; thanks to the choice of footwear by the first lady of the USA. #shoegate

FLOTUS was wearing black patent reptile leather high heels by (supposedly) Manolo Blahnik. Nothing wrong with that, she always wears them, we hear you say. Well everything is wrong with that very poor desicion because she and her husband were visiting Corpus Christi in Texas, nearby the catastrophic situation caused by hurricane Harvey.

Ms Trump’s look was so out there, that it stole the news from the devastation hurricane Harvey left behind. Continue reading
