This truly shows detail, personality and hard work pays off. Anyone interested in fashion should watch this and learn how valuable it is to nurture new designers today.

I’m so happy for the runners up and the winners! They were all my favorite from the start, but I am not telling you who they are! You must watch first — NO SPOILERS.

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!

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!

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.

Have you ever wondered what Impressionist artist, Claude Monet ever cooked? Well now we do!

Vogue’s NYC Guide

Art, Fashion, News

I am currently back in the beautiful state of New York for school again. Yes, time flies and moving on to year three. Insane!

Whenever I am back in the Big Apple, I always constantly look and read what is going on in the city. Luckily, thanks to Vogue.com, there is a New York City Guide and it is perfection!

You can narrow your searches on the page. There are many sections to choose from of what you want to do in the city. For example, under the city you have selected, there are two search engines after and the viewer can choose activities to where to go vintage shopping. Plus, the user can decide their favourite curator as their guide.

Hopefully this weekend I will have the chance to go back to the city. I am mostly going to use the guide for activities and dining. So, we shall see how it goes!

However, I still need to visit the exhibition, China: Through The Looking Glass and the it closes Monday, September 7.

I was so happy that The Metropolitan Museum of Art extended the fashion exhibition due to popular demand.

Do not forget to keep an eye out for my blog post on the exhibition this weekend!

Art, Fashion

Pure joy! Harper’s Bazaar announced Thursday, July 30 what will be in-store for the upcoming September issue. Carine Roitfeld writes about her favourite fashion icons throughout history featuring famous stars. Jean-Paul Goude is the photographer of the shoot and the photos are magical. There is also an article about Goude’s experience with Roirfeld and Stephen Gan.

Praise Gan, Goude and Roirfeld for Oprah being portrayed as Glenda the Good Witch to Katy Perry as Elizabeth Taylor.

The fashion spread is divine and the creativity of the minds of Goude and Roitfeld are magical. You can see the amount of detail one photo has and realistic. They give great respects to all of the phenomenal icons everyone knows and loves.

If you are not familiar the importance of the September issue in the fashion industry, do not fret. Normally, September and March are the months when it is time to clean your closets. However, September is more of the New Year’s Day of fashion and Fashion Week showcases during that time.

Fashion editorial magazines like Vogue, Elle, InStyle and Harper’s Bazzar have their biggest September issues published. They are large in size because of the advertisers featured in the magazines. Vogue carries the largest title of most advertisers and you can read more in depth via Fashionista.com. There was also a documentary film, The September Issue. The documentary is about Vogue’s creation process of their September 2009 issue.

When September comes, do not forget to buy your copy!

Met Gala 2015: Top Three Favourite Looks

Art, Fashion, News

The greatest night in the fashion industry was on May 4, 2015 and all of the important names in fashion came to the Met Gala. Social media was on full blast with non-stop updates of the latest fashion from the Gala.

Last night, I could not stop refreshing http://vogue.com for more updates of what everyone was wearing at the Met Gala. The top three looks I adored were from Cher, Shu Pei Qui and Bee Shaffer.

Singer, Cher was in Marc Jacobs and I cannot believe she a year over 60! She does not look a day old at all and I really want to know what her beauty secrets are. The dress that Cher was wearing a fitted multicolored shimmering dress and it fit her like a glove.

Chinese model, Shu Pei Qin and she wore Tommy Hilfiger. The plunging red gown had silver detail on the sleeves and she looked divine. Also, the front part of her dress that is plunging and I believe the fabric is velvet as well.

Anna Wintour’s daughter, Bee Shaffer was dressed in Alexander McQueen. The gown embodies the Chinese theme and had cherry blossoms all over the deep red gown. The long train accented the dress that showed tremendous detail.

The three fashionistas dominated the red carpet at the Met Gala this year and I cannot wait to see the exhibition at the Met Museum.

The Met Museum opens the exhibition, “China: Through the Looking Glass” this Thursday, May 7, 2015, to the public.
