The 2016 Way to Wear Your Favorite Trends

Welcome to 2016, when last year’s wardrobe has become completely dated and useless. Just kidding. Just because we’re shopping for new trends doesn’t mean we can’t still work the old ones in fresh ways. Sometimes all it takes is a quick little update to pull off the look you loved so much last season.

Trends-Wear-2016

Stripes? Still totally classic — but add a matching skinny scarf, and your outfit gets an instant upgrade, making it all the more eye-catching. And if, for you, the Winter months scream for furry outerwear, why not just invest in a stole to layer over your camel peacoat?

Sure, the 2016 style scene has a different look about it, but we’ve been told change is a very good thing. Scroll down to see how to adapt your closet, and then shop for the pieces you need to pull it off.

 

 

Rajesh Pratap Singh at Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2016

 

Rajesh Pratap Singh’s otherwise narrative set was bare this autumn/winter ’16. The runway was replaced with a brittle layer of plaster that was intended to crack as the models walked. The press note read a simple poem about the gold rush, and how the destiny of a town changed when the fortune was discovered.

The clothes were unsuspectingly gilded. You saw several iterations of gold woven into jackets, draped into dresses, beaten into floral motifs and in irreverently flecked splotches on crisp white poplin. Singh is not one to hammer on the labour gone into the making of these fabrics, but it appears he may have been incubating and refining his understanding of the metallic yarn for several years.
With the help of textile curator Rahul Jain, Singh worked the yarn in the warp of the fabric. The gold in the floral dresses was almost the pure form and was hand-beaten into the motifs akin to the pitai work done in Rajasthan. If the fit of a jacket is not enough signature of Rajesh Pratap Singh’s work, the red stripe going through the back seam will do the trick.
There were gold suits, evening dresses and shirt dresses through which he displayed his prowess of wielding textile. And there was the only other thing the designer pays as much attention to as the clothes themselves: David Bowie crooned as the models walked. Ziggy’s presence made being in the presence of such luminescence a space-age dream.

Milan Fashion Week autumn/winter 2015

To Pat McGrath, make-up artist supremo and the Italian fashion house’s creative advisor, Dolce & Gabbana’s ‘Enchanted Sicily’ collection would be evoked with flawless, luminous beauty.
dolce-m_2832433a
McGrath’s enchanted beauty was all about an even, immaculate base (using Luminous Liquid Foundation applied using the Foundation Brush, both by Dolce & Gabbana). Using just one shade of skin base, and blending colour from the centre of the face towards the jaw and hairline, McGrath wanted an even tone on each model. This backstage beauty matched the ready-to-wear collection beautifully, which Telegraph fashion editor Lisa Armstrong described as having “a sense of simplicity”.
McGrath then went back over the complexion and applied a paler tone around the eyes, forehead, nose, cheeks and chin, to create her “illuminated finish.” Dolce & Gabbana Blush in Nude was then pressed onto the apples of the cheeks for the ‘magic’ factor.

That classic Italian liner, created using Intense Liquid Eyeliner in Black Intense by Dolce & Gabbana, was then drawn along the upper lash line (over another layer of black pencil liner which McGrath dew along the top and bottom lash line). Sitting over creamy eye colour (taken from the warm, peachy Desert palette by Dolce & Gabbana) and flashes of light (created using Innocence and Gold Dust, again from the Dolce & Gabbana make-up collection) the idea was to create defintion, but atop a highlighted soft, peachy skin to create a romanticised, gentle finish, where it was all about detail.

Seen at Paris Fashion Week 2014:

1′Helmets, Mannequins, and French Maids

The final days of Paris may feel like a giant blur for those recovering from Fashion Month, but fortunately, Cut photographer Dina Litovsky was able to work her magic and pause time with her shots behind the scenes at Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Valentino, and more. The resulting images play out like an epic showdown of the greats. The models at Alexander McQueen looked like warriors prepared to enter a fashion battle, with metallic helmets crowning their heads and detailed sheaths covering their bodies. At Chanel, models resembled mannequins (a number of which were strewn out, naked) while walking next to monumental sculptures that featured interlocking Cs. Even the French maids at Louis Vuitton, with their emerald feather dusters and LV stockings, injected theatricality into the scene. See all these images, plus more, in our final Fashion Week portfolio.

2′Paris Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2014

With runways so highly saturated in pleasing clothes, debut designer collections and an A-list FROW to rival all others, Paris Fashion Week has been more than fantastic. One thing that we have noticed during the course of the past month’s autumnw/winter 2014 presentations is that the fashion biz appears to have been split into polar opposites – with one half championing all that is classic, investable, timeless and the other creating more instantly covetable, unadulterated fashion moments, complete with novelty items and recognisable prints, fabrics, motifs and accessories.

Either way, imaginations have run wild – from the wardrobe items themselves to the catwalk sets they are seen on. Karl Lagerfeld invited his ticket holders to the chicest supermarket know to man and even managed to make the classic Chanel chain handbags morph into ‘humble’ metal shopping baskets so convincingly that no mortal could doubt for a second that they’d be flying off the shelves in six months’ time. For a more discerning dresser relaxed tailoring prevailed, as did friendly mid heels and a new, easy mod mood surfaced at, amongst others, Louis Vuitton under Nicolas Ghesquiere’s first collection.

With that all in mind, you could say we’ve finally reached a kind of equilibrium – somewhere in between the sensible camel coats and the crazy clutch bags. Modern ladies surely want a bit of both, right? So here are the five trends that can be pared back, should you want to, or explored to their very maximum…

Coachella 2013 Celeb : Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Hilary Duff & More!

One of the greatest places to celeb watch this weekend is the Coachella music festival in Indio, Calif. On Friday we spotted a cluster of Victoria’s Secret fh_1Angels:

Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel.

The trio hung out and had a great time together, giving the peace sign and waving to photographers. The models dressed in hippie chic outfits. Ambrosio wore lace shorts and a billowing white blouse with ankle-high cowboy boots. Swanepoel bared her belly in a colorful black tank top, and Kerr wore a graphic t-shirt featuring a sunset. All three ladies wore hats, sunglasses and multiple bracelets.

Kerr made headlines this week after it was reported that she was fired as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. A source claimed she had a “difficult reputation” and wasn’t a big seller. However, it soon emerged that Kerr simply was too busy to make the required three-month committment to remain an Angel.  She is a very in-demand model and also has a husband (actor Orlando Bloom) and 2-year-old son to take into consideration.

There was no Lindsay Lohan spotting…yet. The actress reportedly made a deal to go to rehab only if she could attend the musical festival first.

Spring fashion 2013: Unpredictable style in full bloom

This spring’s fashions are a play on sophisticated chic. From the superhot look of color blocking to the high/low hemline, tweaks on a nostalgic silhouette and 12566193-smallthe unpredictable mix of fabrics, there’s something for everyone.

If you love your arms, try the body-conscious silhouette of a color-block dress. If you love your legs, try the trendy new look of sweet shorts. If you just want one hot accessory, try a far-from-ubiquitous necklace, a statement piece that can be worn with everything from a cotton T-shirt to a silk couture piece.

If you love your shoes, try the flirtatious high/low hemline dress. By simply adding a fabulous belt, you can elongate your legs. Then have fun taking it from day to evening by switching from your favorite pair of flats to a towering pair of gladiator heels, chunky heeled wedges or a pair of studded stilettos.

India Resort Wear Fashion Week venue shifts to Mumbai :-

The third edition of India Resort Wear Fashion Week (IRFW) will take place in Mumbai and the focus will be on bringing designers and buyers together.

The first two editions were held in Goa.

“This year the focus will be on bringing the right designers and buyers together. And Mumbai is known as the hub of fashionistas, so it will definitely help,” designer Rocky S, creative director of IRFW and India Fashion Awards, told us.

Lakme Fashion Week 2013:-

Glitzy designer Vikram Phadnis came up with an unique idea to bridge the gap between rural and urban India. He had villagers walk the ramp with Bollywood stars

Lakme Fashion Week 2013 has probably never seen more stars walking the ramp, and never have the stars looked so proud – all thanks to Vikram Phadnis and his unique idea of partnering with an NGO and including villagers to be a part of his glamorous fashion show.Jeetendra-Juhi-Chawla-Sanjay-Khan-Kiran-Rao-Sushant-sing-Rajput-Malaika-Arora-Khan-Ekta-kapoor-26031130326140349

On day 4 of the fashion week, Vikram Phadnis partnered with The Swades Foundation, and had its members walk the ramp along with B-town celebrities. The outfits were heavily inspired by rural India and Phadnis had the hall decorated with lanterns, as the celebs walked the ramp to the theme song from the movie Swades.

Filmmakers, choreographers, television actors as well as movie stars were a part of the show and they walked hand-in-hand with their compatriots from rural India. Those who were a part of this glitzy yet grounded fashion show were Ayushmann Khurrana, the Kai Po Che gang including Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and Raj Kumar Yadav, lleana D’Cruz, Dia Mirza, Neha Dhupia, Ekta Kapoor and dad Jeetendra, Malaika Arora Khan and husband Arbaaz Khan along with their son, Rahul Bose, Kiran Rao, Chetan Bhagat, Ram Kapoor, Sakshi Tanwar, Juhi Chawla and producer Ronnie Screwvala.

 

Actress Kareena Kapoor, who is a busy Chhoti begum these days, took sometime off and graced the grand finale of the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer-Resort 2013. Bebo walked the ramp for designer Namrata Joshipura. Talking to IANS, Kareena Kapoor said, “I have walked for three years at the Lakme Fashion Week, but this time I was stressed out. But I don’t know how, just two minutes before I came on the ramp, I felt relaxed and comfortable in my clothes. I am happy that I can inspire young designers like Namrata.” Kareena, who had donned an orangish pink dress, looked gorgeous during the show. On the other hand, designer Namrata Joshipura said, “It was both easy and tough. You have a slate work with, which makes it easy. But I am the queen of black, which was challenging.”

 

GLOBAL  KIDS  FASHION  WEEK IS THE FUN FINALE TO 2013 FASHION WEEK SEASON

 

16321

Children’s charity, Kids Company, is to launch Global Kids Fashion Week in London in association with online children’s fashion retailer, and winner of Junior Design Award for best online fashion retailer 2011 and 2012, AlexandAlexa.com.

The news was announced last night at the press preview of the AlexandAlexa.com spring summer 2013 collections.

The inaugural event will take place from March 18-20, 2013 with the main show location to be the Freemasons Hall.

The show schedule will feature two main shows, an exclusive media and VIP event previewing autumn/winter 2013 collections, and a second ticketed event for the public showcasing looks for spring/summer 2013 from AlexandAlexa.com. A full schedule of events is yet to be released.

We are hoping to see both upcoming and established designer labels, which are stocked at AlexandAlexa.com, including Marni, Hucklebones, Pepe, Burberry Monnalisa and Dolce & Gabanna, hit the catwalk.

Kids Company was founded in 1996 by Camila Batmanghelidjh, who attended and spoke at the launch event. The charity provides practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable inner-city children.

Batmanghelidjh spoke about how when a child reaches care, the first thing they need is food and the second is usually clean clothing. All profits will go straight to Kids Company, to provide funding for these neccessities.

Alex Theophanous, co-founder of AlexandAlexa.com, spoke about how they were ‘proud’ to be bringing a world of fabulous children’s fashion to London, mirroring similar events in Italy, Mumbai, Australia and the USA.

Tickets will be available for the public to purchase and attend the fashion week. All profits will go straight to Kids Company.

The event is also being held in association with the V&A Museum of Childhood. Look out for more details, coming soon!

 

 

India Kids Fashion Week: Hail the ten year old beauty queen!

“When I walked out on the ramp the first time, people started screaming. It felt great. And anyway, I know I am the prettiest. I don’t look at other children, they look at me,” says seven year old Chantel Dias in just one of the many cringe-inducing moments offered by Open magazine’s article on the first ever India Kids Fashion Week.

The narrative is predictable as are its leading characters. There are the kids: precocious, narcissistic, and all-out scary. Little monsters who say things like, “She isn’t as pretty as us. She can’t be in the picture.” The advertising professionals who tut-tut at the “exploitation” of children even as they let their industry off the hook. And, of course, the pushy stage-parents living out their ambitions for money and fame by proxy, pretending they’re just like any other parent supporting their child’s dream. Like Ghazal Sheikh, mother of five-year-old Fiona, who tells Open, “I want her to do whatever she wants and I don’t want to say ‘no’. She loves modelling, dancing and showing off, and it’s great, because she is being herself. She reads magazines and wants the same dress and I buy it for her. Why not start young? I don’t see anything wrong in that.”
