The eights was the emerging trend of females rocking the power suit with defined shoulder, and strong cuts.

I have always been a lover of menswear tailoring and attention to detail and this surge of women making a stylish choice to rock this look, tickles my fashion fancy. I blame constantly watching “Annie Hall” and witnessing how effortless Diane Keaton made it look. Since then I have made it a staple in my wardrobe.

A quick trip to the tailor and a year later i debuted her Day 1 of fashion week, and like tapping into my inner “Annie Hall” I felt confident and ready to brave the busy schedule.
I’m a strong believer in having at least one power suit in your wardrobe and here are a few inspirational looks on how to make it your own… Enjoy:
