Vivienne Westwood Fall 2019: Fashion Protest

Vivienne Westwood’s Fall 2019 runway show was all about graphic protest through fashion, although Vogue’s Luke Leitch’s review was more a protest of the protest than a review…he discussed literally nothing shown but rather complained about being sold clothes while being “preached” to about sustainability. Sustainability and pollution in the fashion industry is not about…

Mary Katrantzou Fall 2019

Mary Katrantzou Fall 2019: she’s become one one of those designers whose prints and graphics stand out, and while I didn’t understand the “London look” when it comes to voluminous silhouettes and outlandish proportions in one of her collections years ago as well as this one’s few looks, I feel as if this is a…

Simone Rocha Fall 2019

Simone Rocha Fall 2019 proved the house has designers that know what they’re doing- who can manipulate satin to that extent and not have it look overworked? Triple layered sheer coats with secondary contrasting color and lapels beneath, sheer overdresses, a stunning sheer black and red fabric skirt, and use of weaved contrast and self…

At Home Fat Freezer?

I’m currently “Freezing” my fat away in a slight amount of discomfort using the fat Freezer System. The technique is based on cryolipolysis, although this gadget claims to use cold lipolysis technology, and also states that’s the “frozen” fat cells are naturally absorbed after apoptosis (it does, however, contain the typo “eliminatesthe” right there on…

The Coach 1941 Fall 2019 collection was a youthful interpretation of 50’s and Western influences with fringe platform creepers and a fresh take on moccasins; checkered polos, plaid shirts and matching sheer pants; coats with western flare yokes; vibrant colors including blues, lime green, fuchsia, and aquamarine contrasting wine, deep brown, and black; the fabric…

Crimes of Fashion Victims: Political RED Carpet “Statements”

Someone needs to gift this clowns with Michaels and Joanne’s gift cards. The best part is, they’re black and gay! How blind, misguided, and misinformed are these fashion victims? Trump and republicans want nothing to do with anyone who’s not white, rich, straight… you have to be traitor to women or to the LGBTQ community…

Helmut Lang Fall 2019

Helmut Lang’s Fall 2019 collection was like a cool take on a retrospective notion of modernity: the transparent coat, shear tops and pants with contrasting fabric pocket exposed from the layer beneath, unique straps with hook and eye closures-some in silver lamé- were details that made the collection stand out. I will definitely be sewing…

Blackface Fashion Faux-Pas

Following Prada’s rather controversial monkey doll and it’s speedy removal from displays, Gucci missed the message and released a Blackface turtleneck. Somehow, Katy Perry managed to join in on the scandal, and created a pair of slippers. At first, I wasn’t too familiar with the imagery although remember learning about it in school, but at…

Dion Lee Fall 2019

Dion Lee Fall 2019 presented amazing undulating knits contour with the body, curving around the shoulders, weaving under and over pieces of the top, revealing slight glimpses of skin through keyholes; jackets with cutouts revealing corsets; a cutout dress fits perfectly together with a turtleneck shrug; uniquely curved vining in tops was an interesting take…
