Rock’n Royalty…

I remember it as if it was yesterday…
This timeless 1990 Vogue editorial featured real fashion royalty !! Christy Turlington photographed by Irving Penn, styling by the incredible Carlyne Nerf de Dudzeele, and Couture fashions by Chanel, Christian Lacroix and Gianni Versace. As fashion royalty as it gets!!  Ahhh… those were the days!!

Carine’s Paris…

For its 10th issue of CR Fashion Book, Carine Roitfeld writes a love letter to her home city of Paris…
“I wanted to show Paris through my eyes, the way I know it and love it, the Paris that makes you dream.”
A lovely edition… J’adore!!

Welcome Spring!! Bienvenida Primavera!!

“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.”

Donatella’s Message…

It was a strong and clear message…
Donatella Versace sent a powerful message with her FW17 collection for Versace…
Unity, Courage, Power, Loyalty, Love, Equality… words to live by always!!

Is The Future of Fashion Female??

Clare Waight Keller has been named the new artistic director at Givenchy. Natacha Ramsay-Levi has been named creative director at Chloé. Prior to them, Maria Grazia Chiuri took the direction of Christian Dior, and Bouchra Jarrar made her debut at Lanvin. Exciting changes!! Will the future of fashion be female??

The Balenciaga Effect…

Seems to be the shoe fetish that has taken the fashion world by storm…
Worn by so many of the fashionistas and show-goers to the recent FW17 shows, Balenciaga’s pointy, bright colored, printed, spandex stilettos were the shoe-du-jour. High fashion that reaches the street… Demna Gvasalia just nailed it!!

The Unveiling of Vogue Arabia…

Gigi Hadid is on cover of the inaugural printed edition of Vogue Arabia…
An absolutely stunning photo; couldn’t have been a better model to grace this cover, celebrating the diversity of Arab women, as Hadid is half Palestinian, and has always expressed her pride for her Arab heritage…

Elegance and Cool @ Balenciaga…

Loved, loved!! the Balenciaga collection for Fall 2017… It was the definition of elegance and cool, or as in Demna Gvasalia’s words, “nonchalance and attitude”. Gvasalia presented a bounty of pulled together chic pieces that are surely going to be a commercial hit. As an added masterful surprise, a collection of nine spectacular couture dresses, a reinterpretation of Cristobal Balenciaga’s archives, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the iconic French house. Fifties silhouettes à la Gvasalia, each numbered with the date originally created by the master of couture, Balenciaga. Beautifully exciting!!
