There’s just something about Barca’s collection that you can’t help falling in love with. I guess it’s how he paid attention to all the necessary details for a woman’s body and yet makes it so comfortable and easy: the tiny waist line cinched together by a trendy matching belt, flared skirts that give the hips more width, a flowing gown that gives the illusion of long legs and sexy, ruffles and layers, the stunning and finely cut jackets and then the little accessories that aren’t much and yet stand out, like the small shoulder strap sling purses.16_taibo-bacar-4_bellanaija.jpg01_taibo-bacar-1_bellanaija.jpg
