When I Grow Up…

I was too young to fully appreciate the impact of the fashion in the Melanie Griffith’s movie Working Girl. But as the legacy has lived on, I now know the importance of workwear chic. It seems that Massimiliano Giornetti, the designer behind Salvatore Ferragamo thinks the same.

Ferragamo may have earned their fame from their fabulous shoe collections but the latest runway collection is enough to make a statement.

Inspired by the 80s and power-dressing, this modern day working girl has tamed down the hair, made more money but is still as chic as ever. Prints and patterns were a major part of the collection with the majority of the looks in either pinstripe, dots, checks and houndstooth. Necklines were plunging without being crass and the cuts were sleek and feminine.

The rest of the collection may not have had the same impact on me but it still sparkled. Literally. The final looks were shimmering dresses and sparkly shoes. While I doubt I’ll find a place to wear the last looks, there’s no doubt when I grow up, I’ll want to be a Ferragamo woman.
