Fashion Trend Getting Political

In the 80s Katharine Hamnett invented the slogan tee and used her design power for good conveying political messages while encouraging people to ‘wear’ their voices. Those oversize t-shirts with large block letters were adopted by the pop scene including Wham! that wore the ‘CHOOSE LIFE’ tee in their ‘Wake ME Up Before You Go Go’ video. Other messages on…

Fashion Trend: The Bralette is Out

We all remember when Madonna strapped on that famous pointed cone shaped bra and shocked the world. Then it was Selena who picked up the trend followed by other musical artists. Today it is something we see often on the stage. It has been seen a bit more recently on the street as well as crop tops with bra’s built-in. As…

Embroidered bags, embroidered shirts, embroidered dresses, embroidered jackets, embroidered leather jackets.  And one of my favorite trends this year, embroidered boots. This year this artful trend is making a fierce comeback! Spring is coming up embroidery!  Embroidery is something that has…

Fall Trends: Embellished Bags

Accessories have been women’s way of expressing themselves for centuries, heck, even jewelry has been around since almost as far back as the caveman days. There’s always been something in-trend that has been bigger, bolder, one piece of the total look that stood as the cornerstone for the whole rest of the look. The signature on the masterpiece if you…

Fall Trends: The Pantsuit

It began with the greats, Coco Channel, Katharine Hepburn, even Frida broke the mold defying all by donning men’s wear in a time when women were still regulated to skirts and dresses. One could not say the same today, where it’s sometimes hard to get a woman out of her comfortable jeans and into a skirt. I am delighted to announce that even…

Fall Trends: Shine baby shine

Every little girl loves dress up day, whether it’s a birthday party, Halloween or even a trip to the grocery store; when their mom lets them wear that sparkly Cinderella dress with the plastic rhinestones we all used to think were just the prettiest things ever. As we got older, dress up days were still a thing, they were just…

Francesco Scognamiglio Monochrome

The color palette for the Francesco Scognamiglio Spring Summer 2017 collection was a bit cooler than one might typically expect. Blacks, whites, the occasional strawberry gold metallic and the ever elegant Willow China floral print in blue and white which served as the most spring-esque of the fabric selections. Keeping with this year’s trend, the designs were of a classically…

San Andrès Milano Romantic Tale

Throughout fashion week I was privileged to witness many different shows by several different designers, each having their own personal flair; however, none stood out to me in quite the same way that the San Andrès Milano show did. It stood out to me because of how much love and how much of the actual designer was evident in each piece…

Falling in Love with COTE

The COTE fashion show was something quite different to behold during fashion week. Set in a grand hotel in Milan some were a bit confused at first and many did not enter the show initially thinking they were still in the process of setting up. That may be due to the fact that the scene for the show was set much…

Piccione Piccione Blossoming Girls

Piccione Piccione Spring Summer 2017 paints an epic tale of girls blossoming into women and societies need to preserve their youth, pulling a double reveal, of a woman trapped the guise of a little girl whose mask is really hiding a strong independent woman. The show is meant to give off the air of innocence untouchable, the view someone might…

Fashion Week 7 Days 7 Fragrances

Fashion week has started and I have prepared all the looks for the days ahead. I love to wake up in the morning see how I feel about my closet and then decide what I’m going to wear. Dressing up takes me 1 hour of thinking and going around the room and 10 minutes of actual picking clothes, shoes, accessories…

Fall Trends: Ruffle Dresses

The leaves have begun to turn various shades of russet, marigolds, and copper. Falling softly to the ground in silent homage to the snow that is soon to follow. It is Fall’s very own splendidly designed calling card, and a sign that change is the air accompanied by the smell of pumpkin spice. Soon we shall all begin digging in…
