Trend Report: Neon

Credit 1, 2, 3 For that futuristic wow-factor, nothing really beats neon. Perfect for nights out but also as day wear, designers went bold and bright in a rainbow of electric hues. A fresh way to wear neon is in one bold swatch as seen above. Of course, neon accessories can take any outfit from […]

Charleston Fashion Week 2011 Bridal Show

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGJAjNelyq4[/youtube] After a few days of recouping from fashion week, I am finally able to write the last two Charleston Fashion Week posts. On Saturday, I went to my first bridal show, which is weird because my mom plans weddings. When I walked into the tent, it was transformed into a wedding reception with snacks […]

Shoe of the Week-John Ashford

  I met John Ashford and his lovely shoes one night at Charleston Fashion Week. He came all the way down south, by way of NYC, because he had designed some shoes for Emerging Designer La’Dasha Powell. Everyone wanted to look at the shoes that his model Nofar was wearing. They are called “Moon Walker” […]

Trend Report: Denim

Credit 1, 2, 3 America’s favorite fabric is big in a whole new way for spring. While denim has been acid-washed, sand-blasted and shredded within an inch of its life in the past decade, for spring we’re looking at a new clean, minimalist look at denim. Whether you use it for tops, skirts, jumpsuits and […]

Of Note…Liya Kebede

This week’s Of Note post will be brief due to my travels for Charleston Fashion Week. Liya Kebede was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 1978. Like most famous models, she was spotted out of the blue at the French Lycee by a film director who introduced her to a French modeling agent. From there […]

Charleston Fashion Week 2011 Night Three

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX146W3HeoU[/youtube] I am writing this to you in my hotel room with one watery eye and a runny nose. I think my allergies have gotten the best of me here at Charleston Fashion Week. Good thing the front desk sells hot pockets and allergy medicine. Hopefully I can churn this post out before the Benadryl […]

Charleston Fashion Week 2011 Night Two

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLPzATyvdRs[/youtube] Last night was another amazing night at Charleston Fashion Week. There were two shows featuring local stores and then four shows showing four new Emerging Designers.  The featured designer for the night was another former Emerging Designer from a past Charleston Fashion Week. Let’s get to the reviews. First things first. I just want […]

Trend Report: Tassel Belts

Credit 1, 2, 3 A fun accessory with a nod to the Orient, the tassel belts, in obi or skinny styles were a perfect compliment to the decadent 70s wear. The only rules to wearing these belts is to keep it at your natural waist (for figure flattery reasons) and wear them with a heaping dose of confidence.

Charleston Fashion Week 2011 Night One

Amazing! I wanted to do a video with me […]

Trend Report: Orange

Credit 1, 2, 3 One of the punchiest and hottest hues for spring is coral’s close cousin, orange. While all of the zesty colors are definitely in for summer (think grapefruit pink, lemon yellow, lime green…) orange has been popping up everywhere. Unlike coral however, this can be one tricky shade to pull off, and […]

Of Note…Joe Zee

Joe Zee was born on November 23, 1968 in Toronto, Canada. While growing up in Canada, Zee memorized fashion magazine mastheads and studied popular culture with a maniacal zeal. That zeal is what has helped Zee become a popular fashion figure. In 1990, Zee moved to New York to attend FIT and soon became an […]
