In a white bread world standing out from the crowd is a luxury. Twenty-seven year old Pavel Berky used bright pinks, fuschia, blood-red silks and wools to create an over-the-top look for his “Coming Out” collection shown at Shooting Fashion Stars 2013. Sexy red pumps, silver lips, brunettes with pomade hair; if this is what it means to be a gypsy- sign me up- for I am hooked!
