Cynthia Rowley Spring 2011 Handbags

Cynthia Rowley’s new Spring 2011 handbags are to die for. I am really feeling the Charlotte Frame Shoulder bag in Coral. I think coral is going to be color of spring and summer again just like last year because it is a great color that works on all skin tones. Which purse is your favorite? They are available now on the Cynthia Rowley website.

Join Alexis Maybank from Gilt Groupe For A Gilt-y Party At Cynthia Rowley’s Charleston Store

I am going to Charleston Fashion Week tomorrow, so I can’t wait for all of the festivities to begin. One of the parties I am looking forward to is the Gilt-y Party hosted by Alexis Maybank at the Cynthia Rowley store. I will be there, so if you are planning on attending, please come up and say HI! I promise I won’t bite.

Here are the particulars:

 

Exhibition A

Exhibition A

 

Inna Dream Land Expand`s depicts El Bosque de Oma, a forest in Cortezubi, Spain that was painted by Spanish artist Agustin Ibarrola. Borthwick captures a moment that illustrates harmony between nature and man: the human-touched trees look both out of place and yet completely at home. Look closely and you will notice that this is a mirrored image—a quiet acknowledgment of balance in nature.

You guys know that I am a fan of art. Now I can get my art fix because a new website called Exhibition A has launched. Most of the artwork on the site starts at $100, but that is really cheap when you think about the fact that you are getting great quality art. I already see some art that I would like to buy for myself. If you don’t want the art for you, you can buy some art for someone else. It is the Holidays after all. Click here for an invite to this exclusive website.

Also check this out for more information:

Exhibition A is a new members-only website offering exclusive editions of work by prominent contemporary artists — including Terence Koh, David LaChapelle, Richard Phillips, Nate Lowman, Rene Ricard, Josephine Meckseper, Aleksandra Mir, Brad Kahlhamer and Olivier Zahm — for $100 to $500.

All editions will be available for purchase at www.ExhibitionA.com for a limited time. Select editions are also available at the Gagosian Shop on Madison Avenue in NYC.

Now at www.ExhibitionA.com , which just launched in beta, users may view and pre-order editions by Richard Phillips, Hanna Liden and Mark Borthwick. Interviews with collectors Simon de Pury and Cynthia Rowley are also live.

Exhibition A was started by Bill Powers, owner of Half Gallery on NYC’s Lower East Side and judge on the Bravo tv series Work of Art, in conjunction with designer Cynthia Rowley, Laura Martin and Gabby Munoz. The idea behind Exhibition A is to foster the next generation of collectors — the young and culturally-savvy who are interested in contemporary art and owning works but hereto have had no accessible options.

Slim By Cynthia Rowley Bodywear Proves She Can Do It All

Is there anything Cynthia Rowley can’t do? From her tales of waterskiing, clamming, acting, telling me my face looks amazing, and designing, it seems that the designer can do it all. Now she is designing shapewear, and it looks great. I am a firm believer that every woman, no matter how big or small, should wear the proper foundation garments, but these garments look good enough to wear by themselves. Prices are between $130-$260.

More Fashionistas Flock To Gossip Girl Next Week

I can’t wait for next week’s Gossip Girl episode 4.07-“War of the Roses”. It is going to be fabulous. Cynthia Rowley, Joe Zee, and Rachel Zoe are going to be on there. You know I love all of those people, especially Cynthia Rowley.

During next week’s episode Cynthia Rowley will be wearing a glass cabochon top and printed leather heels from the Spring 11 Collection, as well as a feather tutu now available at www.CynthiaRowley.com.

This week on GG they had Tim Gunn and Ivanka Trump, now this. I am really loving the cameos this season. Another cool thing is that the show will feature a performance by Robyn. I have loved her every since the mid-90s. I think I have all her singles, even the European ones and ones in Swedish. Total fan.

Jai Reporting Live From New York Fashion Week


I have some great posts for you that probably won’t be made until Friday, unless I have some time tonight, because I will be driving back to Columbia after the Isaac Mizrahi show, instead of flying back to help my aunt out with her move. I went to some great showrooms while I was here. I can’t wait to show you some of the jewelry from Atelier Minyon.

I met some designers from my school. Hopefully they will send me some of their information, so I can show you their work. I also got some pictures from new designer Washington Roberts and some video from the Tibi show, although that video might be a little bright.

Also can we talk about how I saw Kanye West, Jason Sudeikis, and Cynthia Rowley walking around NYC the other day. I even nodded and Kanye and he actually said “What’s Up!” Can you talk about starstruck. I have also seen Robbie Meyers from Elle, Nina Garcia-who makes a pretty pregnant women, the blogger from WhereDidYouGetThat, and I also saw this famous fashion journalist whose name escapes me:( .

More Fashion Week Review Madness

This post is a continuation of this post and this post and this post. Photos from Style.com.

The clothes from Band of Outsiders was very preppy, which is perfectly ok because it was full of the preppy basics that aren’t bland and hold your attention. This is what brands like Abercrombie and American Apparel should be selling.

Cynthia Rowley started out light and moved into the dark with a collection that was very Cynthia Rowley, yet different at the same time.

Juan Carlos Obando has to be my favorite collection so far. It is classy, it is sophisticated,  and it is glamour. These looks will get you ready for any cocktail party or gala.

Lacoste was amazing, not just because they used a lot of black models, but because Lacoste designer Christophe Lemaire bowed out of his final season with the brand in beautiful way. The clothes, which reminded me of a modern Great Gatsby was perfectly Lacoste.

The girls at Ohne Titel make edgy clothes. They are things that modern and fresh. The clothes are perfect for the girl that doesn’t want to have to deal with pomp and fluff.

Cover Up Your Cut In Style

With sequins, bows, runway looks, and gold chains, these Cynthia Rowley Band-aids are sure you cover your cut up in style. I love the fact that $1 of each sale goes to a charity. They are so pretty. I think I might buy some. You can get them from the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, Cynthia Rowley stores,and www.cynthiarowley.com. I know you guys are like why does she talk about Cynthia Rowley so much, but I really love her clothes, and she has been a style inspiration for me since I was in high school.

The Fall Previews Just Keep Coming

TFAS is now mobile.
I have been so busy with school, which is running me ragged by the way, that I totally forgot about this email from Cynthia Rowley’s PR people. They sent me pictures of the F/W collection. I always love Cynthia Rowley’s clothes because you can tell she made them for a fun woman, just like me! When I met her at Charleston Fashion Week, she was amazing. The way she wears her clothes, you can tell she is the Cynthia Rowley woman. DUH!

 

This collection has a bit of a flapper feel to it with all the fringe. It is so funny to see these influences in fashion right now because we are studying the Twenties and Thirties in my History of 20th Century Fashion Art class. The collection also featured puffer coats and gloves. I love how puffer coats keep you warm, but they do feel a little bulky to me. As always, her shoes are to die for, but the colors and patterns are what I love best about this collection. Who says you have to wear only drab colors in the fall? Not I and apparently not Cynthia Rowley either.
Check out videos and other pictures of the collection here.

Resort 2011-Cynthia Rowley

So I wrote about Chloe Sevingy for Opening Ceremony Resort 2011 way back into last week or so. After that, the other shows came out one by one and then they had the menswear shows in Milan over the weekend. I am slack. I know. Forgive me. I will post this week about the shows I liked the most.

 First up is Cynthia Rowley. The clothes were cute, fun, colorful, and quirky. I really liked how beautiful and feminine the clothes were. She always makes clothes fit for a lady. I need those blue strappy heels in my life. There was also a big use of shapes and textures in her clothes. That totally kept things interesting. Photos from Style.com.

Charleston Fashion Week Emerging Designer Contest

Hey everyone! It is raining here in Charleston aka The Chuck, but I am having a last. I opted to skip the interview session today so I could bring you an update on the fashion show from last night. It was CFW’s answer to Project Runway. Eb and I had a blast looking at what each designer created for the show. Sorry if the camera is a little shaky, and sorry for the one shot that was sideways. I don’t know why my camera did that. If you know how to fix that, please help me out. The panel of judges are Mychael Knight, Gordana Gehlhausen and Carol Hannah Whitfield from Project Runway, Elysa Lazar, Ashley Reid, Ayoka Lucas, designer Cynthia Rowley, and Anne Slowley who judges the last segment of the competition. I hate that I am going to miss her.

Don’t forget to click the READ MORE link below!!

OK! Let’s get started.


Uriel Zamora-
His show was amazing, no TRESMAZING! He was inspired by one of my favorite artist, Roy Lichtenstein, so he created these sculptural looks that reminded me of Lady Gaga and Beyonce. I wish the judges had picked his line to move on. 🙁
Barbara Beach- One of the finalist that is moving forward in the competition
I wish I had her footage but my camera actually ate some of her footage so again I am confused at what happened. Sorry about that, but she showed cute and preppy childrenswear. The kid models look adorable.
Anna Lassiter-
Her collection was so Boho chic, but it was done very well. I could see this collection selling. In a major store.
Hannalei Taylor-
Her clothes were really cute, fun, and girly. The plaids and lace reminded me of her interior design past.
Larika Page- One of the finalist that is moving forward in the competition
Her clothes were so amazing. I am so happy for her because her collection was scultptural, elegant, wearable, and classy.
Chelsie Ravenell-
He showed a line for men and women. It was very preppy meets urban, but not in the Pharrell or Kanye way. It was a mix of downtown skate and basketball(two of the designer’s pastimes) inspired deconstructed looks. I thought it was OK, but it could have been better. I heard one of the judges, whose name I shall not say, say what was right on my mind. I thought to myself, “How do you create looks for an original collection if you are just going to destroy and spray paint Levi’s?” He didn’t make those jeans. OHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Jamie Lin Snider-One of the finalist that is moving forward in the competition
She is a Las Vegas native living near Charleston. Her bio said that she likes to create looks that bring “a city edge to Charleston’s sophisticated, Southern charm.” What I saw were not edgy, but elegant clothes inspired by the past. The only thing I didn’t like, where the cheap shoes that were too big for the models’ feet. They all stumbled, slipped, and walked slew footed down the runway. That took away from the beauty of her clothes.

Julia Faye Davison-
I am not gonna lie. I was intrigued to see what she would create, but thought I would probably not like it because she said her collection was a mix between two cultures. It was a reverse Pocahontas themed collection based on “a regal Englishwoman and a proud-spirited Native American man [who fell] in love”. Umm… yeah. Color me surprised! I actually liked it. The best thing about the men and womenswear collection were the paneled and fringed leggings.
The three finalist have to take a certain number of white button down Oxford shirts and create a garment inspired by Alexander McQueen.
The main show of the night featured contest judge and Project Runway finalist Gordana Gehlhausen. Her GOGA collection featured some incredible hand knitted dresses and lots of lace and ruffles.The whole collection reminded me of a women who was into Anna Sui when she was younger, but wants the same look just a little more subdued.
