My Fashionable Way of Blending In.

This past week has been a crazy one which started with a very short-lived adventure that has to be shared with you’ll, in due time, but because of that event plus others that took place in the past few days, all I can do is add them to the unusual, eccentric, interesting, odd one in, collage I call my life.

There were times I wanted to hide underneath a black umbrella and blend in with everyone else, while walking in the rain, but my mind wondered as to what would be my blend-in outfit? Instead of being practical, this pretty number popped into my head.

Yup when it’s cold and raining in New York City, Maison Martin Margiela Couture is what I want to wear, face piece and lace pants included.   Ohh I didn’t stop there.

Yearbook of Balenciaga and Ghesquiere.

“When he (Ghesquière) started Balenciaga in ’97, he was designing uniforms for Air France,” François-Henri Pinault. Fifteen years later and Nicolas Ghesquiere evolved not just his designing techniques, but also the great fashion house of Balenciaga, putting the brand among the greatest with handbags, shoes and accessories designed by Ghesquiere, that are collectors items and clothes that requires their own silhouette category. Nicolas GhesquiereBalenciaga has been the perfect fashion formula, with design hits putting them into the history books almost every year in the last decade.   Upon hearing the news of Ghesquiere’s departure from his position as creative director of the fashion house, I decided to revisit some of Mr. Ghesquiere’s body of work and create my own Fashion year book, before Taschen publishes theirs.

How do you take some of the best moments from a legend in fashion and try to fit everything you love about that designer on the least amount of pages? Ha right, I didn’t.  Since most of us are visual creatures, therefore I created an ebook filled with photos from every spring/summer fall/winer campaigns Nicolas Ghesquiere has been behind.

Now Nicolas Ghesquiere’s sucessor, Alexander Wang, has some work ahead of him; continuing what Nicolas has paved out, draped for him to live up to. Best of luck, Wang.

Attention: Beauty is the New Fashion

There is a statement that Tiffany Godoy made which I think some designers out there should pay attention to before they completely pass over the cloning side.  “Today we are inundated with fashion images and we see so many of the same clothes all the time, so it seems that makeup is where we can really express individuality and uniqueness.”

The face has begun a new place to experiment with prints, color-blocking and fashion trends that can be washed off at the end of the night.   Editor-in-Chief of Japanese fashion magazine The Reality Show,  Tiffany Godoy and Art Director Tomoyuki Yonezu co-created this film which features models painted by some of the industry’s most sought-after makeup artists who reinterpreted fall/winter 12 runway trends.
