Keep an eye out for UK's latest and greatest designer, the 25-year-old Jasmine Di Milo. Her designs—edgy and youthful with a sophisticated rocker flair—have just been picked up by 29 global outlets, including a number of U.S. boutiques. The child of Finnish and Egyptian parents, Jasmine studied at the London College of Fashion and trained in fashion workrooms at Harrods alongside some of Britain's top talent.
Di Milo started designing back in 2003, and for several years, she's been showing off her wares in a boutique located on the first floor of Harrods, which you should definitely check out if you're ever in London. I can't wait to see the results from her first big fashion show next spring in Paris. If you decide to order her clothes online, keep in mind that the sizes are U.K., so go up two sizes to get the right fit. (If you are a U.S. size 6, order a U.K. size 10.) Check out two of my favorite pieces that are now available online.
I absolutely love this gorgeous and funky red Stretch Silk Bustier Dress. It's got a padded bra top and a boned bodice, and the bottom has a drop of stretch in the fabric to prevent static cling around your backside. Buy it here for $588.
For one more look,
This sexy Satin/Lace Flounce Dress has exquisite detail. The neck drops low, and the hip carries a black satin tie that is meant to fall long. The skirt area is fluid and flirty and has a touch of delicate lace overlay. The best part, however, is the open back with its sheer, sexy black lace. Buy it here for $735.
