Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2015 Collection

Palais at MonacoThe Palais Princier Monaco was the setting for the Louis Vuitton show (@drdidou66)

Today Nicolas Ghesquiere took the Louis Vuitton cruise collection to the catwalk for the very first time. For such a grand occasion, an equally grand backdrop was needed and with the world’s starriest of stars currently holding court in the French Riveira the Palais Princier Monaco was, naturally, the perfect location. When Ghesquiere showed his first collection for the legendary house during Paris Fashion Week in February, he certainly made his mark by showing his collection in a pared-back manner. And despite the swanky setting for the Cruise 2015 show, the same execution applied.

Style file: Designer Vika Gazinskaya joins Russia’s fashion revolution

 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.

Seven key steps to making a fashion business successful with today’s Market.

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

The top 10 looks from the TFI new designer showdown

©ourtesy of  Natalia Manzocco & blogTo

tfi new labelsThe Toronto Fashion Incubator swept four of its most promising young designers onto the runway this week as part of the group’s annual New Labels competition. Toronto-based Christopher Paunil, Laura Siegel (a Fashion Week veteran), Nomad of the Sun and AliceAzur each showed their best, most carefully-honed pieces before a panel of judges and a room of fashion insiders. The prize: $25,000 in cash, an editorial in FLARE Magazine, and a professionally-produced lookbook.

Who came out on top? That would be AliceAzur’s Miriam Baker, a recent Ryerson grad, who was met with a huge hug from her visibly-moved folks at the end of the runway after accepting her prize. (Aww.) But the competition was stiff; prize or no, you’ll be seeing more of the runners-up yet.

Here are my picks for the top 10 looks from TFI New Labels 2014.

ABOVE: Nomad Of The Sun’s Ashley Boutcher focuses on swimwear tailor-made for lounging glamorously by the poolside. Her geometric suits were often layered under flowing chiffon – in this case, black sheer trousers and a plunging-front swimsuit made for ’70s-style glamour.

New York Fashion Week: 8 Things Looking Forward To from Designers

©ourtesy of  graziadaily.co.uk

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…

1: New York Fashion Week: Kim Kardashian and Kanye FRONT ROW Action.

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.

nyfw-sjp

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.

PARIS: Gareth Pugh Spring/Summer 2014

What can we say? Well, I’ll just go ahead and say it. FAN-TAB-U-LUST to Mr. Pugh! I simply consider this collection to be one of the most ‘original’ set of looks to date. Day, Evening & Formal wear, all put together. Go Gareth !!

gpBack in 2005, Gareth Pugh was living in a squat in London when all the important UK fashion magazines attached themselves to him like a Fred Perry-clad tumor. Fresh out of fashion school and an internship with Rick Owens, he was soon a style-page wank fantasy, representative of the type of hijinks English fashion clamors for. It was all justified. Gareth’s first shows featured inflatable outfits and light-strewn garments. Everyone in attendance over the age of 30 offered mealy-mouthed praise—like it was all very well and fun and diverting but ultimately fey and immature. Attendees under the age of 25, however, cheered the models and clothes down the runway, feeling like somebody had finally reinvented fashion for the 21st century and rescued us all from retro regurgitation. Six years on, fashion sites are overflowing with photos of androgynous kids addicted to black who look just like Pugh. His line garners the type of attention and praise usually reserved for the vaunted and dusty old guard. He shows annually in Paris and New York, working and hanging out with all the ritziest fashion people, like Karl Lagerfeld and Mario Testino. We’ve known him for a while, though, so we persuaded him to take a few minutes for the following little chat
