Marc Jacobs & How Dark is Back

“Just LOVE this ad campaign”

marc-jacobsOn Friday the 13th it was all about gory darkness. After all, who said that Spring is all about light, fluidity and aethereal fabrics? For SS2014, Marc Jacobs’ message sounded loud and clear: Fuck Spring! His mood was irreverent punk meets embroidery winter fantasy, channelled through his rebel wig peroxide blondes (Cara Delevigne, Sky Ferreira, Lily McNemany and more). His mood (which is flirting with the doom & gloom of the day) is clearly mirrored into his collection for yet another season (after all last time he was refusing to get of his pyjamas).

Undoubtedly, there were pieces that will still make the cut, as the above dresses can perfectly coexist with Muiccia’s take on dark tropicana. And with the given weather condition changes that won’t give it a rest, something tells me that fashion afficionados will be into those outfits in no time. The only thing left to see is what he’s going to show on the Louis Vuitton show end of month.


Fab Kids Get Own Show at Fashion Week

Barbie The Dream Closet Playdate at Lincoln Center, Saturday February 11th

 

The weekend of New York Fashion Week is the unofficial “bring your kids to the shows” day. It’s a status symbol, really, proving you’re successful and cool enough to show up with an impromptu — albeit miniature — plus-one, Jennifer Lopez style (bonus points if your daughter carries a tiny Chanel bag). But if you’re a fading reality star who has enough trouble wrangling show invitations to begin with, or if you’d just rather watch your kids parade around in clothes instead of skinny models, why not hold your own fashion show starring your own children instead? That way everyone can marvel at your offspring’s cuteness with no distractions at all.

 

Enter “Kids Rock,” a fashion show that will be held at Grand Central Terminal on September 11, at 6 p.m. WWD reports that the “models” will include Teddy, daughter of Kelly Bensimon; Jeffrey Tarpley, son of Sherri Shepherd; Lil C, Jaden, Cyia, and Carter, children of New York Yankee CC Sabathia; and Amar’e Jr., Assata and Ar’e, children of New York Knick Amar’e Stoudemire. They’ll be “wearing the latest trends,” says a spokesperson for Haddad Brands, which is sponsoring the show. Stoudemire will “host,” and the labels represented (Levi’s, Converse, Jordan, and Nike) will donate items to his foundation, as well as to Kids in Distressed Situations.

Before designers show off their wares on the runways of Fashion Week, they channel their inspiration and sketch their creations. For the spring 2014 shows, which kick off Thursday at Lincoln Center and other locales around New York City, those inspirations ranged from Hollywood glamour queens to ancient tribes to modern art. Here’s a peek at some of those fashionable inspirations (in the designers’ own words). — By Julie Gordon, amNew York

Keeping with the already-established midriff trend, this season’s little white dresses are all about the bits they’re missing. From Topshop Unique‘s sheer panels to Stella McCartney‘s sharp angles and lacy eyelets, these are summer frocks by way of paper snowflakes. Click through the gallery to see those, plus nine more, and three members of the cutout club spotted on the streets of New York.

Pivot Runway Show

I recently had the opportunity to create the production design for an amazing collection. The venue was at the Helen Mills in midtown in this multi-purpose room that we had wanted to convert completely. The staff was very nice and the resources limited, but overall it came out well. The clothes were beautiful. For more info, look up Sukeina International.

The models were beautiful & diverse
