Behind the Scenes with Vivere Spring 2013 Collection

Who says full-figured fashion can’t be chic, sophisticated and sexy! For Vivere’s sophomore collection, femininity, tailored elegance, and refined structure are punctuated throughout in bold hues making today’s modern full-figured woman a very fashionable one.

I got a chance to go behind the scenes of Vivere’s Spring 2013 Collection photoshoot with designer, Sabrina Gibbs (in grey) and fashion stylist (and Author of The Wow Factor launching Feb. 2013) Jacqui Stafford (in white) as model, Katya Zharkova, was photographed in various looks.

The young, fresh collection features sleek lines, masculine touches, a stylish, relaxed sensibility without being casual and amazing proportion and fit. The looks also extend your wardrobe by making excellent mix-and-match pieces. A favorite was the hot pink Paisley Tuxedo Pant with red side pinstripe

At the event, we were asked to style one look for Katya to be photographed in and you can see mine below. I chose the Madison Cropped Silk Blazer, Chelsey Riding Pant and the gorgeous hot pink and cream Amy “Double Lapel” Blouse with side slits. I added a pair of pearl earrings and ring to highlight the cream in the blouse – the result is an uber-feminine and flirty menswear silhouette

I’m no stylist but I’m happy to say my look was a big hit with both Sabrina and Jacqui (major ego boost). Ladies, keep an eye out for these wondering looks coming to you soon. Visit for more information and follow Vivere on Twitter at @Vivere_Shop.
