Bow. Bow and bow again. Jonathan Saunders will always have a special place in my heart. Every collection he creates,  is so breathtaking. Yes. It can be a bit much for most. For me?  His collections are timesless yet stuck in an era. His collections are feminine, child like, sophisticated yet playful. This collection proves me right. Mary Tyler Moore much?!  ugh. give it to me.

If this is what 2013 has to offer in the world of fashion. Then I may not be so upset that christmas is 6 months away. I am loving this color palette, the ever so youthful appearance in girls dressing in Overall Jumpers, Leggo like color blocking and layers that make more than sense to the no sense at all. This collection from Carven, resort 2013 is beyond remarkable. and beyond wearable. Grab that check book. Carven will carve its way into your bank account.

Those platform shoes will be an instant sell out!!  GORGEOUS

Once again,  One of my favorite Collections from the Resort 2013 shows come from Marni.  Marni seems to embody everything I love in fashion. Drab colors blended with Sky blues and yellows with prints of a fly swatter net. Oranges suffocated in Burnt Sienna. Outrageous color blocking that only a forward girl can pull off. This is my favorite color family, the 50’s. Consuelo Castiglioni  definitely rocks at her own beat, and my head is bopping to and fro, up and down- hell. in circles if you will. I LOVE THIS COLLECTION. NOT ONE PIECE is counted out.

Do you have what it takes to pull off this pristine collection?

HEDI SLIMANE is changing the name of Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent Paris

Posted in ART, CELEBRITY, EVENT, FASHION, HAIR, ICON, PHOTO, STAR, STYLE, STYLIST with tags , , , , , , , , on June 21, 2012 by jovan townsend

HEDI SLIMANE is changing the name of Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent Paris as part of his makeover for the label. Slimane took over from Stefano Pilati as the fashion house’s new creative director in March this year.

READ HEDI SLIMANE’S LIFE STORY

The new name is expected to be introduced in the coming months and should be implemented by the time Slimane’s debut spring/summer 2013 collection lands in stores, WWD reports. The designer will use the same font and nomenclature that the label’s eponymous founder first used when he launched his ready-to-wear line in 1966, then called Saint Laurent River Gauche.

A spokesperson for the label told WWD that Slimane will use the house’s “original branding” in order to restore “the house to its truth, purity and essence – and taking it into a new era”, while “respecting the original principles and ideals”. The brand’s logo will also remain the same.

Slimane’s debut pre spring/summer 2013 collection will be shown to a small group of buyers imminently, while his first catwalk show will be unveiled during Paris Fashion Week – which starts on September 25 and finishes October 3.

YOUR FAVORITE FASHION DESIGNER IS FROM WHERE?? REALLY?! CHECK IT OUT.

Posted in CELEBRITY, DESIGNERS, EDUCATION, EVENT, FASHION, FASHION HOUSE, ICON, STAR, STYLE, wikipedia with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 28, 2012 by jovan townsend

Have you ever wondered where your fashion designer is from? Have you ever wondered where this said designers brain hails from?  I stumbled onto this page doing research, and it shocked me. For one,  one of  ,my favorite designers is Rick Owens, as many know, and with his design aesthetic you would think he would be from, let’s say, Paris. Wrong.  Or did you know that the wildly creative twin duo Dean and Dane Caten- The masterminds behind the insanely profitable line DSQUARED were from Canada??  probably not…

I know a lot of people who are asked ” Who is your current favorite designer?” and respond with a fashion house such as Dior or Burberry. Truth is, is that these are major fashion houses and each fashion house has an actual designer. We all know that currently Raf Simons is designer for Dior and Christopher Bailey is mastermind behind the wildly orgasmic Burberry Prorsum line…..  So. knowing designer trivia is a good thing .

Check out this designer location wikipedia profile I found.. It just may shock you. Or not. Its still a good reference point.
