High-Fashion Colour Trends: Dressing The Colour Purple

It seems purple is everywhere! Long acknowledged as the colour of royalty, nobility and all inner mobility, the colour purple is gradually taking over fashion too! So regal and distinctive, it is no wonder that fashionistas all over are sitting up and paying attention. Purple (and hybrids plum, violet)  makes a huge statement all on its own, so accessorizing is easily understated and yet elegant. From accessories to bridals, make-up and interior, it seems this purple haze is here to stay!
