Donna Karen's Spring/Summer 2010 line is exquisite! She creates pieces that embody femininity in all of it's aspects: strength, complexity and elegance. Log on to Neiman Marcus.com to hear her tell it like it is in her own words!
Everyone in the San Diego fashion industry has something to say about couture designer Francisco Medavog, but personally, I love him! Call him what you will, but the man has talent, attitude, and twenty years of credentials to back it up! Check back for fashionstreetsd.com's personal interview with him coming in the next few days.
I LOVE Milena Silvano. She is a London based stylist deeply rooted in the fashion design industry. As well as the nostalgic visions of yesteryear her styling portrays, she also designs a small collection of women's dresses.
Her methodology of design seems to fall perfectly in line with our bohemian San Diegan/California health nut mentality. Hand coloring her cloth with vegetable based dyes, this collection is eco-friendly and attractive... something I find rare in today's hippie hippie shake designers.
"Art is mystical, a gift of talent, subconscious and sometimes unexplainable." The creators of Masion Lefé assure you of this. In fact, their creations are created from, get this, a 7 year old! This family business based in Carlsbad, CA is something to be talked about. Maison is a second grader by day, artist extraordinaire by night.
I was having my morning coffee today, doing the usual blank stare at my Facebook home page. You know it- scroll up, scroll down, what's new, when is my coffee going to start kicking in already? I stopped when I saw a comment on recent American Apparel fan page post.
Best Sunday Ever, hosted by Kellie Nail yesterday at the
Treo Building held a mini fashion show I wanted to highlight; designs from labels Petra O, Holywood Million Denim, Stacie May,
Lust for Luxe, and Alejera Jewels were featured. Here are the best
pieces from the show.
Sonia Rykiel, the famed Parisian
“Queen of Knits”, has expanded her lingerie collaboration with H&M and has
partnered with the store to release a Spring 2010 line for women and girls to be released February
Rykiel, who in 1980 was named one
of the world’s top ten most elegant women, has surely put her signature
whimsical taste to great use. The line is unmistakably Parisian with sunny hues
and playful stripes all paired with a beret!
So infuse a little fun into your
sweaters this season, stop by Fashion Valley this Saturday and check out the
gorgeous line! You can also go online to see the entire collection.
Lacoste is most famous for their tennis
shirts, but the Fall 2010 collection was far from country club attire. The knitwear
collection makes me want to curl up at the snow lodge with a cup of cocoa! The
bright colors in the collection; hunter green, cranberry, and amber keep the
line cheerful so we can smile all through next winter!
Steven Cox and Daniel Silver are the designers behind
the New York based men’s line Duckie Brown. The two men aim to “dress men
beautifully” and they certainly achieved this through their Fall 2010
collection. The bold color choices, impeccable hand tailoring, and interesting choice
of footwear kept the styling fun!
Farah Angsana is known for doing bridal and couture
gowns, and her Fall 2010 show did not disappoint. The line in ultra feminine
with accents of sequins and luxe fur, it reads as ultra chic. She showed Thursday
evening in the Salon.
American Designer Richard Chai debuted his Fall 2010
collection Thursday morning in the Promenade. Chai is a former Marc by Marc
Jacobs designer who has since launched his own, self named label. The Fall 2010
line is reminiscent of 80’s knit patterns with long lean lines. Not the
shoulder pad throw-back fad we have become used to, something new, something
fresh, and surprisingly stunning.
