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.
Adriana Munoz an illustrator who was born and raised in Barcelona is now based in London and is giving us a new form of fashion illustration that is soft and sexual.
Combination of beautiful drawings, with fabrics and 3D fashion illustration helped Adriana earn a place among the Best of British Contemporary Illustration for 2009.
Expect to see more from this artist who has and will continue to give us a new outlook on Fashion Illustration.
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!!
The French have given me another reason to get excited. French artist Amose, shows us his unique use of shapes and colors in his illustrations. The tiny heads and unusual human forms is what Amose’s signature work looks like on canvases, walls and also his digital work.
On most of his art the subjects have robotic shaped bodies that are big, strong and not to be messed with. Neck up is a different story. Make them look human is what he did, giving his subjects regular size heads with very expressive faces that have than human feel to them, making you appreciate what you’re looking at. Let’s see if Amose will be kind enough to create an animation bringing his characters to live!
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.
