This is set to be another highly anticipated collaboration and if it’s anything like Beyoncé’s current style, then it should be hot! I am looking forward to it and can’t wait to get my hands on some pieces!

Yes! Finally! Thank you!! A fashion show that is worthy of being called a” fashion show” in Sacramento. I’ve been to so many fashion shows lately here in Sacramento and yes, the shows have been good, but nothing like what I witnessed this evening. My idea of an awesome fashion show is in a gallery setting which is intimate, chic and the perfect lighting. Thats exactly how La Tier’s “Inititation” fashion show was.
This packed show was all about showcasing the up and coming talent in Sacramento. 7 fashion design students Yennie Zhou, Amal Iqbal, Mikie Spencer, Svetlana Bunyatyan, Alma Orozco, Ulyysses Gonzalez, & Saul Latvanen, all from American River College have put their heart and soul into their studies of becoming verified fashion designers. I can be the first to attest that they are all on their way and it won’t be long before any one of them gets noticed. The show was held at the Verge Center For The Arts, an art center where the community can use for various art events. The event was put together with tact and organization.
There were ushers there to seat each guest in their assigned row and seat. The lighting was perfect and the setting was perfect with white walls filled with hanging art and tall ceilings. Each designers set was meticulously done, from the hair and makeup, which was provided by Paul Mitchell the school to the models. All of the designers were fabulous and not to discard any of their talents, but their were a few that stood out to me, not just for their designs but for their concept and visions.
Ulysses Gonzalez created a concept that was Grecian and Greek Mythology inspired, but once I got a better look at it, his vision and collection reminded me of something that the late great Gianni Versace would have created.
Mikie Spencer, another very talented student designer created her vision of the “Seven Feasts” of The Lord. Again, blown away, so much work, detail and time was devoted to this collection that was biblical inspired. With each model walking to each feast: Redemption, Holy Walk, Resurrection, Coming of the Holy Spirit and Birth of The Church, Gathering of Israel, Atonement of Israel, Kingdom of Joy. So much intricate detail in each dress.
Saul Latvanen, not only was he one of the curators of this event, but also the headlining designer. I was literally blown away from his entire collection which to me was very Cavalliesque… From the moment the first model walked out, I knew he was going to close the show with a bang. Saul has the makings of becoming a designer on the level as Roberto Cavalli.
I’ve had the pleasure of attending LA Fashion Week and each and every one of these young, talented designers has what it takes to get themselves there or even New York Fashion Week. Supporting student fashion designers is a big part of any community, not just the fashion community, but the arts in general. Please take the time and visit La Tier and Verge Center For The Arts.

When most people think of Sacramento and the surrounding area, the first thing that comes to mind is that it’s the State Capital of California. I’ll be honest, before I started blogging, I always, thought there was really nothing special about the capital city. But boy, were my eyes closed. I didn’t realize how big the fashion community is and how many talented designers there are here.
I’ve had the pleasure to attend many local fashion shows and I’m astounded at the amount of talent that is here. This Saturday the 25th of October, I’ll have another opportunity to witness more talented designers here in capital city. La Tier, a leading force in the Sacramento fashion community, promotes fashion, beauty and arts. They aim to showcase talents in the fashion industry and they have put together the “Initiation” Fashion Show.
La Tier is presenting 7 designers, local to northern California, all with their own aesthetic. The show will be held at the Verge Center for the Arts in downtown Sacramento. This is the perfect opportunity to see what this city has to offer the fashion industry. I hope to see you there! For more information on the “Initiation” fashion show, visit La Tier and to purchase tickets visit Event Brite, but be quick about it, there is only 230 seats and they are going fast.

The fashion world has just lost an iconic, talented, graceful designer. The designer who’s dresses can make women feel like a princess lost his long fight with cancer. This man was truly a genius and there is no other designer quite like him or can top him. I am truly sad..
TopShop has collaborated with the creators of a raw denim, acid faux fur and Matrix Style Leather Marques’ Almeida. If your not quite associated with this duo, in 2009 they gained their experience at Vivienne Westwood/ Anglomania (Marques) and Preen (Almeida). In 2009 they started the acclaimed Fashion MA at Central Saint Martins and began working as a duo. While their post study collection modified hints of street wear, they championed a relaxed, deconstructed look. Now this duo has brought their aesthetics to TopShop.

Well, the leap has finally been made! Chanel, glorious, lovely, beautiful Chanel is finally posting Instagram! I cannot wait to see the photos the brand will post. The reason behind the long wait is to promote the fashion film “The One That I Want,” starring Gisele Bündchen and directed by Baz Luhrmann.
The New York summit of muses is where Caroline de Maigret snapped some informal photos of Harley Viera-Newton wearing a red Chanel bag and Anna Wintour with Karl Lagerfeld and Baz Lurhrmann. Take a look at the pictures that were posted on @chanelofficial.

Congratulations to John Galliano as he makes his triumphant return to the world of fashion design. We all go through periods in life in which we are not proud of and regret the mistakes we’ve all made. Let’s hope that this master of design has paddled through his mistakes. Not only is Maison Martin Margiela already an amazing brand, but with Galliano as the new Creative Director it will be taken to a whole new level. Good luck Galliano!

So these adorable dresses may be making a trending comeback, but sans the post Courtney Love… It is a great style, if worn correctly. I have to say my favorite is the Givenchy dress that Cara Delevingne modeled… What’s your’s?
