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.

 Vika Gazinskaya is a driving force in Moscow’s style revolution. Now she is joining forces with Swedes & Other Stories, says Rebecca Gonsalves.

Much has been made of the so-called Russian revolution in fashion these past few years – but it’s not just a case of designers courting customers with plenty of roubles to flash as an influx of designers, stylists, journalists, bloggers and models proves the country has come a long way from its state-rationed sartorial past. And so, once obscure Russian names are becoming gradually more familiar to those who enjoy seeking out interesting additions to the style world.

Stella McCartney is the perfect role model for young fashion entrepreneurs, says a report by the British Fashion Council

 Young British designers should emulate Silicon Valley and Stella McCartney and view the launch of a fashion brand as an entrepreneurial venture – not solely a creative endeavour – according to a report published today by The British Fashion Council. Titled Commercialising Creativity – Creating a Model for Success for British Fashion Designers, the paper claims that there is a dearth of guidance available to fashion designers starting their own businesses, an anomaly in an industry that employs almost 800,000 people and makes £26bn annually.

“Our ambition is that future generations of designers will understand how to create a business plan and source investment in the same way the tech industry does,” said BFC CEO Caroline Rush. Rush added that the findings would help young designers “evaluate the kind of business they want to be and the questions they should be addressing from the start.” Continue reading
