Someone has read my mind, after all these years of praying for it, and putting it out there, two of my favorite things have been put together, literally! Now this is where things could get a bit tricky, especially for a combo request like food and accessories. You have to be specific or else you never know what you’ll get in return.

Came across these series of images from artist Craig Redman. His cartoon character Darcel of Darcel Disappoints made an appearance at the newly opened Louis Vuitton London Maison, and gave us his personal commentary. Actions speak louder than words with D.D.

Balenciaga--Let's Play Tetris.
“What was your inspiration for this collection?” A required question that the designers are asked each season. After the Fall’10 Fashion Week, I think they should be asked the same question about the footwear they put onto the models. The shoes, have been getting just as much attention as the clothes being showed on the runways. For some of the designers, the reaction from viewers would be the tilting of the head and a raised eyebrow.
This past week the Parisian designers outdid themselves. I had to wonder what they were thinking and mumbled that notorious question under my breathe. Unfortunately each of the following designers were not available to answer me and my imagination started to run wild!
Chanel–Big Foot. Givenchy–Little Red Riding Hood.Jean
Jean Paul Gaultier–Arabian Nights. Yves Saint Laurent–Last Of The Mohicans.
Paul Marni– The Woman that Lived In Her Shoe John Galliano–Ax Men

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!!
