Besides the clothes and jewelry that help define your style, what about some of us that want to add a little more with an accessory on our heads.
Not just something with a brim, but a piece that is custom made for your head, or a style of hat that needs it’s own seat! A hat can make more of a statement than everything else you’re wearing and thanks to milliners like Nasir Mazhar, Philip Treacy andJustin Smith they keeps your eyes up, way up.

They are competing with fashion designers for the attention and with their creations, they’re on their way to winning.
Staying ahead and creating trends, isn’t that what fashion is all about? Well the latest trend that should have most people pleased is the new way to see the shows during fashion week.
The numbers have increased since last year for the amount of designers giving us immediate access by photographs online after a show and live streaming their collection(s). This works great for some fashion editors who hate rushing to several shows in one day or others waiting for hours just to see a fashion preview that lasts less than 2o minutes.
William Rast is using the web to their advantage by “live streaming” their Fall 2010 show Wednesday 02/17/10 at 7pm. Front row seat on the couch while wearing, what you want no complaints here! Cutting cost anyway you can is smart.
For emerging fashion designers, spending money for a fashion show is a luxury they cannot afford. Designers like Barbara Tfank, Chris Benz & Kimberly Ovitz gave us photos via Style.com, saving themselves thousands of dollars, and showing their creations to the consumers and fashion lovers directly.
This form of showcasing one’s collections opens it up to a bigger audience which should help with marketing and sales.
When the creative wheels start turning, cyberspace is limitless! Why not give us a fashion show longer than 20 minutes or a mini movie?
In a recession we creative people always have to think of ways to keep the fashion innovative, exciting, ongoing and the money flowing!!
Viktor and Rolf took this recession cutting back thing literally.
Only the brave and fashion forward can pull off any of the looks from Viktor & Rolf Spring’10 collection. Doing “The Simple Thing” is not what Viktor & Rolf is known for, season after season they give us something besides safe.
I can honestly say, its been over a year since I opened a fashion magazine I got excited about a story that was created with the clothes. the model(s) and photographer. I actually didn’t renew my subscriptions and stopped buying my British magazines every month. For awhile I wondered, would the giddy feeling be back???
All praise Liya, Liya, Liya Kebede.
Couture, tulle, ruffles, silk and rollerblades. Not what you’ll expected to be worn together. but the gorgeous Liya Kebede and the photographer with the magic touch Alexei Hay, made it work. This fashion spread was created for January’s Elle Italia. Maybe the Italians can get me inspired again, gotta love them. Step it up American Vogue.
The Outsiders are in. A magazine photo shoot that shows us how nonsense can make you do a double take. A jewelry design duo makes you wear lips on you shirt and Michael Jackson around your neck plus a sculptor who will never let a book go to waste.
