Jetting back to Sydney tonight! I have a SunSilk event tomorrow at the Opera House and I am SO excited to take pics in front of that iconic building. Hmm what to wear!?
The handsome, poised, and incredibly talented Dion Lee won the 2010 Woolmark Designer Award presented by Vogue Australia at LMFF last night.
Wool has been a staple fabric in our wardrobes long before before rayon, polyester, and other synthetic fibers started clogging up our landfills. Australia is the world's largest producer of wool in the world and Woolmark is the the most recognized fiber brand in the world. Every year, the Australian Wool Innovation and Woolmark present a Designer Award to one of Australia's most innovative and fashion forward designers.
Each piece of art will be auctioned off this Spring in London and the proceeds will be donated to Oxfam to help support women in West Africa. So amazing!
The theme for Christian Cota's Fall '10 line was Look Again, but honestly, he didn't have to remind anyone to keep looking at his work. You could see from the turnout that everyone is eyeing what he is doing next and maybe most importantly, he seems to have won Vogue's blessing. Ex Vogue-ette Lauren Santo Domingo styled the show and I literally almost bumped into Anna Wintour coming in as I was exiting.
Can't wait to see what he does next and watch his career grow!
There's been some major buzz surrounding Timo Weiland and rightfully so. Their Fall collection touched on 60's London with just a dash of innocence and definitely brought out all the cool kids. I rode the elevator with Sammy and Roxy from The City and every person in the space looked like they just stepped out of a very well-dressed, super cool world. Then there was me, hunched over with a giant bag weighing me down and a giant camera around my neck. Must work on fitting in.
Below is the link to watch the live interview with Ted Rubin taking place tomorrow (Tuesday, Feb 2nd) at 11am! Ted is the CMO for e.l.f. Cosmetics and is responsible for leveraging their brand very successfully though social media. The interview will cover how Ted keeps over 19,000 Twitter followers, what defines social commerce, and how social media will impact the beauty industry.
Look who I saw last night at the Supima Cotton emerging designer fashion show! Coco Rocha and two of the beautiful and confident plus sized models from V Magazine's Curves Ahead shoot.
How refreshing to see these women be naturally beautiful... *ahem* Heidi Montag. Even Coco, who is considered a standard model size, looks healthy and normal. Can we please not even speak about Heidi and her 10 plastic surgeries? I'm so over it.
I've been reading a lot of articles lately on the shopping behaviors of consumers since the recession has hit. Some feel that now that consumers realize they can find amazing things on a budget, they may not go back to spending tons of money on clothes. Good news for HSN, who keeps filling its roster with amazing affordable designer collaborations and super cute pieces that are right on trend.
Just when I thought I wouldn't see anything that remotely looks like an island vacation in my near future, Roxy and Cynthia Rowley saved the day by showing their super cute surf inspired collaboration Thursday night.
If you are in New York this Thursday night then you must take a break from staring at the Rock Center Christmas tree with all of the tourists and swing by Eryn Brinie for a super fun shopping party. The line known for its modern, chic sensibility at an amazing price point is hosting an intimate party and performance by Erin McCarley. Enjoy a 20% discount for any last minute shopping you may have to do. They have super cute accessories which make amazing stocking stuffers!
Tuesday night, I had the pleasure of joining David Meister, Lifetime, and a few other top bloggers in an intimate gathering on his Spring collection and a look back on some of David's hottest red carpet moments. And who knows more about the red carpet than Lifetime's newest site, All the Looks, which is practically mecca for celebrity style fans.
"It's all about adapting and working with what they are comfortable in and what works for them. Sometimes they swear they don't look good in a halter then they try it and it works. It's fun to get them to step out of that and try something new."
"It's not about size or age, it's about what style works well on your body. It comes back to stretch. Things with stretch just fit and move so much better on different body types."
On his spring collection:
"For day we are usually all about structure. Strong silhouettes, a lot of color, but again, not a lot of detail. I think women, especially now , they want pieces to be special and timeless. We did a lot of primary colors for spring. For evening and cocktail, it's a little more specific, when you are looking for a more specific dress. We worked with chiffons and still a lot of draping and twisting and one shoulder is still huge"
"A great black jersey dress, a simple dress with color (depending on your skin tone), and a great ball gown! You never know when you're going to need a ball gown! And a great cocktail dress that you know you feel good in."
On the explosion of blogging:
"Information is so fast now and fashion is a very fast paced business. It all works together hand in hand. It's the next phase."
There are some people in the industry that just have amazing instincts. They know exactly what will be hot next, where to get it, and how to put it together. Stefani Greenfield, a fashion veteran who started a little store called Scoop (maybe you've heard of it?), is one of those fashion soothsayers.
