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 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: The Tartan Trend is Back

When I think of the tartan trend, I immediately think of Scottish Kilts or the heavy wool blankets that we used to have growing up. Tartan, or ‘plaid’ as some people call it, originally was made of only wool. However, with growing popularity in the print itself, it is now also made in many other materials. The Dress Act of…

Fall Trends: The Velvet Underground

With its chic look, and simple elegance, it is without a doubt that velvet creates a sense of elegance that no fabric can. Whether it is a dress, on shoes, a handbag, or even a sofa, velvet has reinvented itself again and again over the years. What originated as a fabric for the wealthy, who used velvet in their outfits…

Going to fashion shows, presentations and parties I barely survive Milan Fashion Week, and this year I am also attending Paris Fashion Week for the first time. So ahead lie 2 weeks of planes I need not to miss, days that start early in the morning and parties that end late at night. All this trying to stay awake, running on…

Street Style Details of Milan Fashion Week

Street Style Milan Fashion Week I was asked by eBay to photograph what inspired me during Milan Fashion Week, so I went off to capture what details make this Fall Winter 2014 2015 season more exciting. The runway shows at Fashion Week have us start making a wish list for Spring Summer 2015, while the street style outside the shows…

This collection reminisces on his journey to success as one of the greatest men’s tailored suit designers.

Spring Summer 2015 Milan Menswear Fashion Week

Streaming fashion shows online definitely doesn’t even compare to the excitement of actually going to the shows, which I discovered attending Milan Menswear Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015. What I never knew is that the experience involves more than seeing the clothes; its the fashionistas and street style photographers that capture new trends seen from tumblr to Vogue; it’s the…

John Varvatos Tribute to Rock Superheroes

 John Varvatos Fall Winter 2014 / 2015 , Milan I know that my generation isn’t much into rock anymore. We have forgotten everything about the music and the hair whipping of the 80s but have kept the style. Designers as well have been taking references and not giving the deserved credit to the times when show costumes were made with…

The bejeweled world at Dolce Gabbana

I’ve been horrible posting the recent events. But not just recent, most of the fashion week events have not been posted due to some technical problems. But I’ll start publishing them before it is too late and viewing photos of people dressed in coats starts looking weird. Here is a post about the incredible Dolce & Gabbana store in Via…
