Are you a good witch or a bad witch? This spring, you can be both!
Imagery and awareness of magic and witchy women have grown increasingly the last couple years especially in the public eye. The fashion world has taken note, that is for certain. Whether you are a die-hard Stevie Nicks’ aesthetic, or are curious as to what Hermione Granger might wear should she embrace her inner wild woman, here are some looks from the Spring ’17 catwalks for inspiration. As always, all of these looks have been taken from design houses run by women!

Wendy Nichol’s collections are always magic, regardless of season. The hood on this outfit is what makes it special.

A very water-goddess look from Cyntha Rowley above.

Feel like the Aganovitch look above veers more towards Middle Earth wanderer, but hey, it takes all types.

This Melitta Baumeister look above is probably my favourite of all these.

The small streak of blood-red lipstick on the lower lip of all the models in the Veronique Branquinho show above made a huge impact. Note to self!
