I’m heading to Dallas this week for work and I’m terribly disappointed to be missing this Spring Event by Rare Trends. I only recently discovered this showroom when my good friend, Kristen of POM PR, was sporting a phenomenal fringed purse that I felt I must have and learned it was designed by Argentine designer, Allo Martinez, and was from Rare Trends showroom. Then only two days later, she was wearing a pair of earrings that took my breath away and again they were from Rare Trend. This prompted me to want to know more about this showroom. After looking into their designs and story further, I found they not only have beautiful accessories but also stunning clothing.
Rare Trends was founded in September 2011 by sisters Paola Moore and Marina Silver who are originally from Argentina now based in Austin. I love that the sisters make a bold statement in saying “We believe women shouldn’t simply wear clothes. We believe women should wear art.” With this, they strive to seek designers globally who are different and modern and are “inspired by architecture, movement, and construction leading to garments that each tell a story.” I really admire this thought process that goes into discovering designers.
The spring season is all about color, floral and prints. Three of my favorite things! They will be debuting new pieces from style-savvy Argentine designers: Jessica Trosman, Allo Martinez, Cosecha Vintage, Kostüme, Ana Silveyra, Natacha Morales, Tramando, Daniela Cortese, and Poty Hernandez. Oh, how I wish I were in town for this one. Here are two of my favorite looks and I can’t wait to see more.
Orange Crush – pleats. LOVE!
