My love for tailoring began in secondary school when I wore my father's wedding suit for the end of a year ceremony. It was the most beautiful black pressed wool blazer with a single button and a straight leg trouser that I've turned up. I was 15 years old that time and it was my favourite outfit. Unfortunately, I no longer have it :( But  I'm sure even today, I would still wear it with a pride.

The fashions from the past are continuing to affect the current trends of today. We've seen women in tailoring in almost every era from the past, but my personal favourite is Yves Saint Laurent's introduction to Le Smoking Blazer in 1966. He changed the perception of women wearing trousers with his iconic tuxedo suit.

I never plan my outfits, I do however always start with a jacket and shoes. Once I have this, I see the outfit with the eyes of my mind. So when I found this black vintage 80's blazer with the dramatic cape covered in sequin, I HAD TO HAVE IT! I knew straight away that I have these lace-up stilettos with a pointy toe that would be perfect with it and here's the result.  I opted for a pair of black trousers and a vintage blouse with embroidered collar. Of course, you can style it in many ways you like, once you have the timeless basics, the possibilities are endless.
