Belgian designer Raf Simons fully embraced the man skirt for his Spring/Summer 2013 presentation at Paris Fashion Week, pulling inspiration from womenswear collections to create masculine versions of dresses and oversized t-shirts. Pop art was also a big influence, with boxy androgynous silhouettes, clean lines, and lots of bold blocks of pink, green, and blue. Vintage-style prints reminiscent of 1920s graphic design also featured on many of the pieces, with depictions of male athletes accompanied by text such as “artificially flavored”.

Kicking off Toronto Fashion Week

©ourtesy of maggie wrobel @ Globe and Mail Update
Toronto Fashion Week: Despite the wall-to-wall crowds, the start of Toronto World Master Card Fashion Week show is generally a slow burn, with things not getting properly fired up until at least day 2. However, the parade of the fall/winter 2012 fashion week collections show – again held in the city’s David Pecaut Square – started out with a bang, or rather, a tap. A jovial tap dancer kicked off Holt Renfrew’s biannual fashion week show with some of its favorite homegrown labels, coaxing smiles out of even the front row’s poker faces here in Toronto Canada. – - See more Fashion Week show

NYC Jobs in Fashion 'Trade Show' Pointers

When interning for a designer or showroom, it is very likely that you will come across the opportunity to work a trade show. Major shows such as the ENK shows (Intermezzo, Coterie, Sole Commerce) are well known and can exhibit up to 5,000 vendors! These shows usually take place at the Javitz Center. Vendors come to showcase their products for the upcoming season. You can imagine how many clothes (and people!) you can expect to be surrounded by. Basically, trade shows give vendors an opportunity to display their collections so that buyers can place orders for their businesses. Warning: trade shows start early. Buyers start pouring in at nine am, so being there by eight to help set up the booth is crucial. If you don’t have a lot of sales experience, working a trade show might seem a little overwhelming. You will be interacting with many buyers. It’s important to note that trade shows are all about presentation. Buyers are more likely to place an order if the clothing and booth are arranged in a way that is visually appealing. Remember, every buyer is different- so try to be as accommodating as possible. Buyers will ask for details about the products- wholesale price, delivery date, and the minimum number of pieces per order (2 smalls, 2 mediums, 2 larges for example). Have this information mentally ready beforehand so that the order process runs smoothly.....read More

How to Read Costume on Film

Clothes on Film 
 In this abridged version of a feature originally published in Moviescope magazine in December 2010, Clothes on Film take an overview look at how to ‘read’ costume design. Costume design remains one of the most misunderstood and underappreciated filmmaking arts. Far in excess of merely ‘dressing’ an actor for their role, costume design is discourse. A film can be read via costume; sometimes overtly, sometimes subtextually. Not just conspicuous sci-fi or period, but contemporary stories set within a familiar world in familiar attire. On screen even the most rudimentary item of clothing can take on meaning. .....more on this

MARIA CORNEJO: RTW Fall 2011 "Elegance"

Her collections have always been about eccentricity, and for fall Maria Cornejo articulated that sentiment better than ever with a very strong collection of quirks and contrasts: stiff borders on fluid dresses; clean-lined jackets with gentle volume in back, and a devil-may-care attitude about mixing proportions and shapes. Whether it was culottes and shorts with terrific leather jackets, feathered hand-knit sweaters and long skirts or dresses in amusing prints — fur, hair or even the bookshelves of a friend’s library — it was clear that Cornejo had fun doing her thing while considering the ecological impact of her choices. This season she used a fabric made from recycled casette tapes for evening looks, but she also demonstrated her serious side of luxury with beautiful llama coats and bold graphic jacquard dresses and jackets.

All About Costume Designer: Jeffrey Kurland

The actors are in the foreground, so the costumes are in the foreground,” comments costume designer, Jeffrey Kurland, Oscar-nominated for Bullets Over Broadway. Yet whereas a period or fantasy costume might pop off the screen due to the nature of the clothing and the spectacle of the films, the average viewer may not even notice contemporary costumes because they are so integrated into the experience of a film as a whole. If that is the case, how does one not only vote for costume design, but first recognize costume design that is award winning?
