Fashion Week has strutted its way through New York, London, Milan and Paris – making a statement at every stop! This year, the runways definitely seemed to bear theirbreast best! Plunging necklines, laser cuts, splits, lace and sheer details seemed to be prevalent amongst many of the designers collections this season! Below you will find 1-3 looks that made it to my closet from all of the designers that start with an “A” — check it out!
Photographer Tommy Ton always does an amazing job at capturing street style at it’s best. One trend that has certainly made its way to the top of the list for males AND females is: Stacked Wristwear. The great thing about this trend is that you more than likely already have what it takes to make it happen! Take a watch, chain-linked bracelet, charm bracelet, bangle, and a piece of rope and your set! haha. Use whatever combination matches your personal style and make it work for you! You will see a variety of ways that our friends overseas have begun to incorporate this trend into their fashion week ensembles. Check it out! —>
So now that you know how to do it…DO IT! 🙂 Send your Stacked Wristwear pics to email@example.com!
When doing my daily review of “What’s happening in fashion”, I was ever so amused by a photo feature on Vogue.com. It was posted at the beginning of NY Fashion Week, capturing the ‘Fashion Week Essentials’ needed for the grueling schedules of editors, stylists, models, designers and more. Once Vogue and The Coveteur (a new website) got the list of fashion key players, they asked them to assemble their essentials for a portrait shot by Jake Rosenberg.
By linking up with The Coveteur, Vogue was able to really showcase some ‘enviable and informative’ photos!
The CFDA releases a list of guidelines designers are encouraged to follow in an effort to make the most healthy model selections for runway.
Diane Von Furstenburg, CFDA president, discovered that one of her girls (Hailey Clauson) had slipped through the cracks and was under the age of 16. Realizing the mishap, she wrote a letter to her fellow colleagues apologizing for mistakenly stepping outside the CFDA guidelines:
…”I was horrified and terribly embarrassed. From now on I will instruct my casting people to demand IDs. I encourage you to do the same.” …
15 yr old Hailey Clauson has graced the runway for numerous designers since her debut at NY Fashion Week in Sept 2010. That season she ended up walking for ADAM, Z Spoke by Zac Posen, and Calvin Klein shows and went on to walk for Gucci, Versace, Christian Dior, Lanvin, Hermès, Miu Miu, and Louis Vuitton. She is currently a face of Gucci and DSquared2 (nymag.com).
With the immense use of Hailey Causon it’s apparent that designers are more concerned with the “look” than the actual age of the model.
What are your thoughts? Do you think an age limit should be enforced for runway models?
Whether your 15 or 51.. you are greatness already happening!
