Overwhelming Weather

Fashion, News

 

Monday blues and you do not know what exactly what to wear? Welp, I have something for you!

A month ago I could not figure out what to wear. Plus, the weather kept constantly changing from hot to cold day to day. So, I looked online for weather appropriate tips and I came across this website called, Daily Dress Me. It amazing because it gives you the weather and outfit ideas. The great part is you can search the city you are in and as you refresh the page it gives you multiple outfit ideas.

I love this website and its Instagram is cute too! Do not worry boys, you can switch to men’s outfits too! Also, you can change the temperature settings from Celsius and Fahrenheit.

Enjoy!

The Met’s Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion

Art, Fashion, News

I am always on the hunt for a next great exhibition coming up and I finally came a upon a new fashion exhibition! The Metropolitan Museum of Art will be showcasing Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion and it will open Friday, Nov. 18th.

This is a special exhibition because the gowns and clothing on display are designers’ representations of art. I am really excited to see how it is curated and to learn how these designers changed the art world through fashion. I know some people think fashion isn’t an art form, but they are wrong. Fashion is a sector of art and a way to express the culture and world we live today. I am pretty confident that once everyone goes to this exhibition they will have a better understanding as fashion as an art form.

Make sure you attend The Met and the exhibition lasts until Sunday, Feb. 5th.

Raining Collabs

Fashion, News

Last week was just a whirlwind and all the news featuring new collaborations is just too hot to handle!

First, let’s start with Eddie Borgo x Tiffany & Co. and it will be a time capsule collection about sculpture Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney.  It will be coming out Dec. 1 and to learn more read Vogue‘s article, “Eddie Borgo Introduces His Fine-Jewelry Line for Tiffany & Co.” by Emma Elwick-Bates. This article is also featured on Vogue’s latest issue too, so make sure you grab your coffee today and get ready for your early Christmas shopping!

However, if you are not familiar with Borgo, he is known for his sleek, modern architectural jewelry pieces to his classic handbags. Some of you will know him from his summer 2015 Target collaboration or recognize his pieces worn by the iconic angels during the previous Victoria Secret 2014 and 2015 Fashion Shows.

Speaking of Target collaborations, Business of Fashion‘s Lauren Sherman exclusively announced the Target x Victoria Beckham collaboration out April 9, 2017, online and in-stores. This is another exciting collaboration because it will feature apparel and accessories for women and children. Remember, this will be a limited-edition collection, so make sure to add this to your calendar too!

Excitement is definitely in the air and let the collaborations keep coming!

H&M x Alex Katz

Art, Fashion, News

Time is ticking and Kenzo x H&M will be here soon, Thursday, Nov. 3 and the its next collaboration is  well announced by Vogue.com. Surprise! H&M will be having a new art collaboration with American artist, Alex Katz and it will come out Dec. 1. His work will be feature into men, women and home collections.

I think this is a great idea for H&M to continue to collab with artists because it will allow art fans and fashionistas a chance to own great works. I cannot wait to see which type of artworks he will be using for each of these collections. Maybe, his iconic painting, “The Red Smile” (1927) will be used on a sweatshirt or on a shirt. We shall wait an see this great fashion and art collaboration soon!

Art, Fashion, News

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let you know I am creating a sub-blog, specifically for fashion. I noticed how kcmhappy has shifted more to art rather than being a cohesive balance between art and fashion. The original blog, kcmhappy will be dedicated to art and the other is fashion.

The fashion blog is called kcmhappyfashion and the link is kcmhappyfashion.wordpress.com.

I hope you enjoy and please look out for my first post on kcmhappyfashion!
