The model

Angelina Tikhonova, of Select Deluxe Model Management

Top five summer trends
1 ‘Some of the collections this season are airy and half transparent.’

2 ‘White is in – think Bottega Veneta and Alexander Wang.’

3 ‘The season’s bright, juicy berry colours are delicious. First seen on the runways of Christian Dior, Jil Sander and Lanvin.’

4 ‘Prints! Wild, crazy, floral and even fruit!’

5 ‘There are lots of trousers this season, I don’t like trousers much, but they are a way to look strong and confident.’

Her top model tips

1 ‘My mother insists I spend less money on expensive face crams with chemical additives. She uses olive, linseed and other oils, as well as honey and fruit masks, and she looks much younger than her peers who spend way more money.’

2 ‘Have a glass of water every morning first thing when you wake up – your skin will thank you.’

3 ‘Individuality is beautiful. Look at the new catwalk stars – designers are looking for unusual, memorable faces more than ever.’

The sari designer

2 ‘New sari shapes are hot this spring – the trouser sari, the Lehenga sari and the gown sari.’

3 ‘Lighter colours are also on trend, but instead of pastels, designers are going for fluorescent colours.’

4 ‘Boho chic is hitting the runways, with fringes, feathers and detailing.’

5 ‘Floral and animal prints are big again.’

Nasrine Dechache
Top five summer trends
1 ‘Neo turbans – a more wearable version of the turban in an array of fabrics and colours.’

2 ‘Colour blocking – it makes a fantastic statement.’

3 ‘Half-hand leather gloves. Let out your inner Karl Lagerfeld.’

4 ‘There’s more leather all round. Good-quality leather is so sophisticated.’

5 ‘Big hair: think voluminous curls, afros, side waves and volume.’
