London Fashion Week SS10 – Hermoine De Paula

Hermoine De Paula’s collection was exquisite.  With a colorful array of prints that keep one anticipating for one look after the other. This collection has Alice in Wonderland pop into mind.  I’m thinking that this is a collection that the Queen of Hearts, in the 21st century, would definitely rock and rock well.  Enjoy!

Frankenfashion by Alex Turvey

Being a new blog in progress for a new magazine in progress, I have the privilege and excitement of seeing, reading, and approving/disapproving  of every new comment that is given.  Well today, I was doing my daily “look see” of comments and came across one from Alex Turvey regarding his Dazed & Confused commissioned fashion film — Frankenfashion, that features the wigs and hair ( “The Lips” ) from hairstylist extraordinare Charles Le Mindu and clothing by some of the hottest desginers out there — Nathan Jenden, Rupert Sanderson, Hannah Marshall, Louise Goldin, Manjit Deu.  For those that don’t quite understand it, the film can be viewed as disturbing, but you can’t deny the aesthetic beauty of this film from the clothing to the music, to what inspires Mr. Turvey to create such a film.  Kudos Alex.

LFW backstage: Marko Mitanovski

I love backstage at any fashion week.  It’s so much fun to see the craziness that ensues before the cued step of the first model.  You’d think I was backstage today the way I’m describing this experience.  No, unfortunately I’m stuck at my day job, but Qlix refuses to sit idle while LFW proceeds, in comes Anne-Marie Michel and her superhero-style team to shoot, shoot, and shoot for your viewing pleasure.

Please enjoy the backstage at Marko Mitanovski’s London Fashion Week SS10 show…

Admit it, everyone (within the fashion community) vies to be that fashion editor that gets into the best parties, rocks the hottest fits, and creates the most beautiful fashion stories, but then we wake up and go get that extra coffee before the day starts. Well, I have found a new site — Looklet (thanks to Springwise) and I’m actually more addicted to it then Polyvore… go figure..still love Polyvore though.

Check out my first attempt to being that fashion editor that I was born to be…comments (good or bad) welcomed! Please make it an Iphone app soon!!!

These lovely clutches and handbag come courtesy of Mad Imports, a socially and environmentally conscious company that markets handmade handbags from Madagascar & Kenya. The purchase of these handbags provides the communities to gain economic independence, while promoting environmental conservation.  That alone is enough reason to purchase more than one…at a time.
