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.

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.

CoCo CHANEL Best Quotes

Endlessly Quotable Chanel

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself,” Coco Chanel once said, adding, after a beat, “Aloud.” The legendary designer did exactly that for most of her life, which meant that she became not only one of the world’s strongest forces in fashion, but also one of its most quoted citizens. In honor of her Aug. 19 birthday, here’s a look back at our favorite of her many declarations.

Ichiro Suzuki, Royal College of Arts Designer in the UK


Ichiro Suzuki, Graduate – This British fashion collection has a fashion designer with a genius in mind. With graphic prints and beautiful 3-D elements, Ichiro Suzuki created something truly bold and innovative. From pixels and fur to 3-D cubes on blazers, whilst eccentric there is an intelligent design that is admirable. You can be bold and still retain a sense of conservatism Suzuki emphasized. British fashion definitely rocks with the help of Ichiro Suzuki.

Fatima Lopes kicks off Paris Fall 2012 Fashion Week

By THOMAS ADAMSON Associated Press ©Mercury News

PARIS fashion designer, Fatima Lopes kicked off Paris 2012 fall-winter ready-to-wear season Tuesday with blood reds, provocative leathers and fox fur at the Hotel des Invalides war museum. The Portuguese designer channeled human morphology with blood-red dress inserts, shredded leather sleeves and prints of the venous system in the iconic monument that was built for generals wounded in French imperial wars. Bucking the current trend for padding, the Lopes woman in geometric sheaths had narrow shoulders a look that would have accentuated the frailty of the tiny-boned models had it not been for the provocative leathers in patent black and nude. “Yes, I make tiny shoulders and waists. But this is not weak. It’s feminine and sexy, therefore strong,” said the designer backstage, wearing one of her figure-hugging creations. And sexy was the overriding mood, with bias-cut sheaths split revealingly up the leg and exposing the shoulders. In another sensual look with a plunging decollete, voluminous brown fox fur sleeves contrasted with tight patent leather lapels and a second-skin micro skirt. When the show ended, the crowd departed sheepishly through the courtyard, with 40 huge canons pointing straight at them. – – see Gallery  : NOTE: International Icons reign supreme at this Paris Continue reading

Concept Korea IV - Spring 2012 Concept Korea IV - Spring 2012

Korean fashion design has slowly made an inroad into New York, and it all started with the Concept Korea designer collectives that began four seasons ago.  Some designers from past seasons, such as Son Jung Wan and Parkchoonmoo, now have solo shows as part of the official Fall 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week schedule.  Others are veterans of other Fashion Weeks around the world, such as the duo of Steve J. and Yoni P. who showed at the London Spring 2010 collections. For its fourth edition, Concept Korea featured the following designers in a presentation style: Son Jung Wan (who also held her second New York solo runway show later in the week), Lie Sang Bong, Steve J. and Yoni P., Doho, and Resurrection by Juyoung.  Although an understandably mixed bag in terms of aesthetics and styling with five very different design sensibilities, the collective represented South Korea’s continuing evolution in the world of fashion.  Lie Sang Bong used psychedelic shimmering neon space age cuts inspired by traditional Korean fashion, with killer matching fan clutches.  Doho chose a more ethereal route, with asymmetrical layered piles of tulle and other fabrics dominating.  Juyoung presented the only men’s collection of the five, combining color with semi-formal dress shirts.  Son Jung Wan chose to exhibit some additional looks that were not a part of her solo runway show; her commercially appealing womenswear is much better suited to this presentation format than on the catwalk.  Finally, Steve J. and Yoni P. channeled the ‘70s with their capsule collection, with flower power prints and tie-dyed dresses. – – © Story By Yuan-Kwan Chan
