De Red-Hot Cowgirl draagt een perfecte outfit voor de Zomer van 2019 volgens Mimi Berlin. Relaxed mèt glamour: op workwear geinspireerd en uitgevoerd in high-tech materialen. Het alledaagse her-ontworpen in superzacht leer met high-end afwerkingen. Dit alles overgoten met een care-free jaren tachtig saus van draagbaarhed, glans, prints, kleur en plezier.

The Pret-a-Porter runway shows for the Winter of 2019 are just about to finish. Mimi Berlin is very fond of prints and thus noticed a mini trend: How to make your summer flowers suitable for the winter season? Use huge bright flowers and place them on a black background. Add black and yellow solids, and, presto! You have yourself a wonderful and easy to sell capsule-collection.

In the 1980s the Dior monogrammed sheer mesh was considered a bit tacky. Next to stockings and perfume it was the cheapest Dior-item available.
