Vivienne Westwood RTW Spring 2015 xx2Dame Vivienne Westwood, DBE, RDI (born Vivienne Isabel Swire on 8 April 1941) is an English fashion designer and businesswoman, largely responsible for bringing modern punk and new wave fashions into the mainstream. Westwood came to public notice when she made clothes for Malcolm McLaren‘s boutique in the King’s Road, which became famous as “SEX”. It was their ability to synthesize clothing and music that shaped the 1970s UK punk scene, dominated by McLaren’s band, the Sex Pistols. She was deeply inspired by the shock-value of punk – “seeing if one could put a spoke in the system”. – – more READ

Naked Biopic truth of Yves St. Laurent Hedonistic Life featured at Cannes Film Festival.

yves st. laurent french fashion designerIt might come as a surprise in a film about a deceased fashion designer who spent vast amounts of his life thinking about couture, but one of the most, if not the most, memorable scenes in the new biopic, Saint Laurent, shows a young Yves Saint Laurent completely naked as he walks towards his partner, Pierre Bergé (clad in a black satin dressing gown that reveals his tanned behind), before the young lovers jump on the bed for a romp. Despite the provocative nature of this and other racy sex scenes in the film, which was directed by Bertrand Bonello (of Le Pornographe fame) and premiered at the Festival de Cannes on Saturday, the real controversy surrounding the production has to do with the clothing. What else!

Early on, the Bonello production incurred the wrath of Saint Laurent’s long-term partner Pierre Bergé, who threatened in WWD to sue the film if it copied any of the designer’s outfits—a bit hard to avoid when making a coming-of-age movie about YSL’s life and work.  The filmmakers, on their part, have accused Bergé of distributing letters to parties associated with the film to try to stop it. To this end, Bergé has refused to allow Bonello’s team to consult the brand’s archives. He also publically endorsed another biopic, Yves Saint Laurent, which debuted in January and was directed by Jalil Lespert. The Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent lent the rival film a reported 77 vintage outfits and Bergé helped conduct a scene depicting the legendary 1976 Ballet Russes fashion show. The resulting headlines in the French press declared war between the two films.

New York Fashion Week here, with just a few days left before normal life turns into an elbow-jabbing, style-frenzied, cocktail-heavy New York Fashion Week we can’t help but think of the exciting things to come. January has flown past us quicker than Mo Farah, but we’re ready to pack our cold-weather kit and get FROWing. There are many things to look forward – or hope for – during NYFW: we’ll even see the silver lining of the frosty situation as on streets, it does, after all, generate some impressive winter dressing. Scroll down to see the eight things we’re crossing toes and fingers and faux fur scarves for…

Especially considering Yeezus is still reportedly on a mission to get KK onto the front cover of US Vogue. May the match-matchy super-stealthy outfit parade commence. Stilettos in sub-zero temperatures shall soon become the norm.

2: Manolo Blahnik and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Shoe Line Will Be Officially Revealed IN THE FLESH @ New York Fashion Week.

A shoe collaboration made in heaven, quite possibly even crafted by little fashion industry cherubs, will surely be the toast of the town. We’re talking of course about Manolo Blahnik pairing up with SJP. Although we’ve already seen the full collection pics online, this is the chance to try ‘em out for real. The actress has famously long been a fan of the designer’s stilettos since her days as Carrie in Sex and the City, so expect snaking queues of superfans when they launch in a pop up shop in Nordstrom on March 2.

Rebecca torres x1After studying at Glasgow Clyde College, Rebecca Torres has shot to success after being named by Vogue as “the one to watch” after Asos bought her entire collection in 2011, “They asked if they could show it [the collection] to Asos,” Torres comments after receiving a call from an old university associate, “The next thing I knew Asos wanted to buy my entire collection.” Torres was put on the website as her own person rather than by Asos which meant she started receiving calls frequently which is what prompted her to make her own website with the help of her brother.

No heroin chic here! The first ever plus-size fashion week in Paris celebrated womanly curves in all their glory. Dubbed Pulp Fashion Week – the word “pulp” in French conjuring up luscious fruit – the event was organized by Histoire de Courbes, a Paris-based fashion group that celebrates larger women. Weeks after labels like Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Lanvin showed off their Spring 2014 collections at Paris Fashion Week, the Pulp events were a triumph for plus-size-friendly designers and the women who wear them. French labels La Belle Affranchie, Maryse Richardson, Tamboo Bamboo and Femme Fabuleuses were among the brands sported by the models, who strode the runway in styles ranging from lingerie to couture to sportswear. “Now please let’s welcome women with fabulous curves!” the Histoire de Courbes website announced in English. “What better than a real Fashion Show for the Pulp women?” While some in the fashion industry have moved to address concerns over too-thin models – including bans on models who are under age 16 and who  “appear underweight” walking in shows – skinny is still the predominant aesthetic. In September’s New York Fashion Week, Eden Miller became the first designer to show a plus-size label at Fashion Week. Miller’s Cabiria line carries clothes in sizes 12-24.
