NARS x ANDY WARHOL

Posted on November 7, 2012

NARS Cosmetics has just released a cosmetic line in honor of Andy Warhol and they are celebrating his life in a beautiful way! I am not much for color when it comes to make-up. However, I think everyone knows that Mr. Warhol’s art left the world a little more colorful so I found this collection to be really fun and appropriate. The cosmetics collection is available for purchase at Sephora as well as on the NARS Comestics website. Here are my favorite picks from the limited-edition collection: Images are via.

Fall RTW 2010

Posted on March 3, 2010

I firmly believe that Fall/Winter runways are always much more intense and interesting than the Summer/Spring runways. The opportunities that designers have to incorporate layers, heavy colors, dramatic make-up, etc. always allows for a more interesting show. I have chosen the top five Fall RTW 2010 runways. Take a look: I had never heard of Iceberg until today. What fantastic designs! Alfred Hitchcock is the brilliant mind behind these designs. A mix of menswear and voluptuous furs allowed for a youthful, fun runway.  I did not see one ensemble that did not look ready-to-wear. At Iceberg it was all about the length. The checkered blouses were worn with calf-length pencil skirts, long ribbed cardigans were paired with ankle-cropped pants. Men’s shirts were worn suspended…

Forrest and Bob Pt. II

Posted on March 3, 2010

There are certain types of media that can’t really be described. Media that makes you speechless, blush and quite frankly raise your heartbeat just a little bit. This type of media was found in my inbox, just a few days ago. Sent from designers Forrest & Bob, I got a sneak peak  at their new lingerie collection as well as their S/S 2010 collection. The campaign was shot in Los Angeles and features three models and Carlos Leon. For the first time, Forrest & Bob are creating menswear. The Danish designers are well known for their basic tank designs and after having posed the question, “what do I wear underneath these tank tops?” Forrest and Bob offered me the perfect answer. The lingerie featured in…

10 Questions for Audrey Cantwell

Posted on January 27, 2010

I learned of Canadian fashion designer Audrey Cantwell completely by mistake. I was simply surfing the very popular website, Etsy.com when I stumbled upon her Etsy store “blackmarketbaby” and as many designers before her, I absolutely had to contact Ms. Cantwell regarding her designs. Below I have featured my favorite Audrey Cantwell designs as well as ten questions regarding them and her process of designing fashion. Take a look: 1. Your collections seem to have a dark themes. For example, your Howl collection includes a great amount of leather and studs and your most recent collection Salem features a lot of black colors and drapes. Why is that and how did you come up with the names for your collections? I`ve always had a…

The Fall/Winter of 2010

Posted on January 26, 2010

As I was researching what trends to pick as the Top  Five Trends for the Fall and Winter of 2010, I found that most of the trends could be predicted via. photos. I have therefore decided to use simple photos instead of words to explain my predictions of the trends that (hopefully) lie ahead of us in the year of 2010. Most of the trends that I found were from the designers pre-fall collections. Enjoy. sSources: google images, style.com, harpersbazaar.com, marieclaire.com

The designs featured above were created by the company A QUESTION OF. A QUESTION OF is a company selling organic fair trade T-shirts that are produced in Tanzania, Africa. A QUESTION OF was founded in 2008. The company focuses on fair trade as well as the production of organic, environmentally friendly products. The factory in Tanzania which produces these products operates under fair and ethical conditions which is awesome! I love their designs. Take a look: 5 Preview is another really awesome company. Unfortunately, I could find little information about them. However, do take a look at their website by clicking here. Source: 5preview.bigcartel.com, aquestionof.dk
