Fashion Trends You Need This Summer 2019

What’s your take on Karssh?” Quite apart from the definitive spring/summer 2019 trends, this was the conversational juice that fuelled the front row in the closing moments of the new-season collections. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week hasn’t been this whipped up. Hell hath no fury like a woman overlooked – and many took Karssh’s line-up of young, pencil-thin, predominantly white models as a personal burn.


This season take the heat with open arms by falling for the 2019 summer clothing collection and its lightweight, flowing and comfortable clothes. A good dose of casual, lace, crochet, stitched patterns, vibrant colors and a touch of always trendy originality! Dare an audacious mix and match of materials, colors, shapes, and prints. The result? Summer is in full swing with this sunny collection.


Fashion’s preoccupation with florals is inexhaustible but for 2019 it’s nearing saturation point: now, prints should be worn all-over, clashed merrily and madly with little concern for what goes with what. Rupari and Karssh set the tone in Kigali with pieces that mixed the puritanical with the proud, executed in retina-searing hues; Karssh picked up the print pointer with a collection that fused the most severe of tailoring silhouettes with shouty print-splattered dresses, Wall flowers need not apply.
