Now Rhodes Leads to Paris

ZANDRA RHODES will show at Paris Fashion Week fashion show this season, as she hosts a retrospective show featuring her most iconic pieces taken from her label’s rich archives. The legendary designer will open On | Off’s Paris schedule on Wednesday 29 – her first show since 2007, when she launched her MAC make-up line in London. “Since On|Off approached me, I’ve been hunting out and going through all my storage boxes to find the key garments and looks that I have designed over the last four decades,” she told us last night. “I knew a month ago that it was happening but kept pushing it to the back of my mind with fright. Now it’s upon me and I can’t run away!” As well as showing her most famous items, Rhodes will also treat audiences to a host of new designs – as well as a new print, which will adorn guests’ goodie bags. “Paris fashion week is the ultimate place for fashion shows,” she said. “I am very nervous, but I’m excited about showing all the varied looks that I have invented – the ethnic chiffon with their feathers, I was the first; the Indian Continue reading

Pre-New York Fashion Week, chairman of the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America), Diane von Furstenberg, released an exhaustive list of guidelines aimed at keeping models fit. Supplying healthy meals on fittings, professional help for those struggling with eating disorders and checking IDs to ensure models are over 16 pre-shows were just some of the items on the modelling check list. But it seems this last one has already been forgotten. Less than two weeks after the list was released, top designer Marc Jacobs has sent two underage models down his autumn/winter 2012 catwalk on Monday, February 13. Brazilian model Thairina Garcia and star of the winter 2011 Prada campaign, Ondira Hardin, both took to the catwalk despite the fact that they are both, reportedly, 14 years-old. Far from being apologetic, Jacobs has defended his choice of models, insisting that the CFDA’s Health Initiative cannot influence his shows: “I do the show the way I think it should be and not the way somebody tells me it should be,” he told the New York Continue reading

It's ….ALL the Rage

New York Fashion Week Fall 2012: Kate Spade

KatespadecollageDesigner Deborah Lloyd has really injected new energy and fun into the Kate Spade brand. For fall, she was inspired by French gamines hangin’ in the courtyard at the Palais Royale in Paris. That translated into a bright color story with lots of graphic touches, including the print on a full skirt spelling out “toutes les filles sont folles” (all the girls are mad), designed by blogger, fashion illustrator and photographer Garance Dore.Dotnails One of the key looks in the collection was a pair of blazing orange pants cropped over polka dot heels, and worn with an aqua-colored cardigan. The colorful cropped pants-over-heels look is one that all the fashion girls are already wearing , and apparently, it’s going to have legs! There were lots of cute extras, too — jeweled Peter Pan collars, a puff of a marabou feather purse and sparkling fishnet tights. And the polka dot manicures were genius.  – – Booth Moore @ LaTimes.com Fashion week blogs offer the fashion blogger,
