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.

Matohu RTW Spring 2014 JAPAN

Matohu Jp FWHiroyuki Horihata and Makiko Sekiguchi opted to take advantage of an exhibition hall’s massive curved walkway to show their spring Matohu collection, which highlighted their signature relaxed yet polished aesthetic along with some modern takes on Japanese silhouettes. The duo is a practiced hand at layering and this season was no exception, with lots of slim trousers shown under dresses or long, lightweight sweater coats, and even a pair of culottes under a jersey skirt. But a few pieces, like a lime-green shift dress, were left to stand alone.

As the obvious minimalist I am, I couldn’t help it but fall heedlessly in love with David Koma’s latest collection. Searching up every single piece of clothing he’s ever made, I am now convinced that he may or may not be my current favorite designer.
His creations reminds of less war ready and more sophisticated and pastel-ish ancient Japanese armors.

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.

 


New York Fashion Week Spring 2014: What to expect

Just as you’re trotting out your fall wardrobe, Fashion Week hits NYC with hundreds of designers putting out their visions for — yes — Spring 2014. The shows start Thursday and run through Sept. 12, with the major fashion hub at Lincoln Center, where some 75 designers will strut their stuff in the tents at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. But many others are heading downtown, with Jason Wu abandoning the former church on the Upper East Side for a spot all the way down on Mercer Street. Even Calvin Klein is moving his gig to the brand new Spring Studios in TriBeCa, having shown in its garment center headquarters for five years. Night birds are flying into daytime slots — the fellows at Proenza Schouler are showing at noon instead of 8 p.m., and Tommy Hilfiger trades his evening show for an 11 a.m.-er at Pier 94. Change is good, right? But the schedule is crazy and it’s a headache getting from show to show for sure — so much so that clever Advil is providing free Fashion Week transport in a red-stiletto emblazoned SUV.
