NYFW: Diversity on the Catwalk

I LOVE that NYFW FTL Moda’s AW15 collection was debuted in a show titled “FTL Moda Loving You” featuring disabled models from around the world.

It’s wonderful to see disabled models on the catwalk and the fashion industry promote diversity. It’s a good reminder that anyone can do anything not matter what!

Here’s a link to the article: Inspired Catwalk.

Banana Republic Fall 2015 is the faultless streetstyle collection of NYFW.

It’s the Collection for the realities of life: Meeting friends, the school run, a trip to the shops..a quick snap from the paps…it’s normcorm coolness personified..

And maybe that’s where I have my itch, my first wobble of a potential problem, hard to hold back and impossible to shake off..

I love the stripe. But think too deeply and this collection becomes an unsettling vision..like a serpent eating it’s own tail.  We have fashion..we have street style..now we have fashion that is street style and because it’s so perfectly of the moment, there’s no sense of pushing boundaries or striving for the next artistic step.

It’s not that I don’t like it..I really, really do..and look – metallics and tassels again..

It’s faultless, flawless, impeccable – and feels like it’s been squeezed and prodded into life…

February 2015 Wish List

Girl Scout Cookies

I blog about fashion, but today I am going to blog about Girl Scout Cookies! I am a Girl Scout, a Brownie to be exact, and it’s cookie time!

While many of my readers are far away, I would like to encourage you to order Girl Scout cookies through me, but not for yourself, but for the “I Care” program (info) and bring some happiness to people in need or homesick soldiers deployed all around the world.

Rick Owens got it wrong!

I’m kid and even I know somethings are meant to be covered up in public! Mr. Owens sent his male models down the cat walk in cloaks without pants or underwear! I get the need to be bold, but this is not bold…it’s just gross!

Usually when I dislike something, I’d post a picture, but I can’t. I just can’t. But if you must see, here’s the link to Rick Owens Horrible Mens Collection 2015.

His eye for luxury was shaped and solidified through his professional experience working for prestigious brands such as Chanel, Fendi and Dolce & Gabbana. This behind-the-scenes access and knowledge gave Gio the confidence to pursue his life-long dream of establishing his own label, GIO DIEV, in 2010.

After leaving Dolce & Gabbana in 2010, Gio honed his craft at the pattern studio of one of the most acclaimed shoe factories in Vigevano, Italy –  known…
