A lesson on how to wear warm colors in winter. Natalie sports a red coat with classic gilded buttons and a rich (dare i say) fur trim coller to keep her extra warm. The hints of green almost serve as a reminder of the upcoming holiday season. Also loving the mischevious cat-eye frames with rhinestone detailing.
I really like the accessories here. Arm warmers look really good with a lot of coats (as long as they're the right colour) and Dana pulls them off well here. Again, love that new high-waist coat silhouette.
Woo!! Here it is!! The Stitch Society's 100th Post!!
Professor Jeffrey Mayer has been with the University's fashion design program for 15 years. Stitch interviewed him about the current “That Girl” exhibit displayed in the fashion design office.
Stitch: Can you explain the project? Mayer: Well a few years ago the fashion program was in Slocum hall. We had a great exhibit space which was the Genet Gallery. When they started to renovate Slocum, we had to move everything down to Skytop on south campus. We had to look to see where we could set up our next exhibition space and came across the 3rd floor in Lyman. We cleaned it out, painted the walls a nice ‘Dior Gray’ and we’ve been holding the exhibits in this room for a year now.
Stitch: How long is each exhibit shown for? Mayer: Each exhibit lasts a semester, which gives students the chance to come and see each one as they can.
Stitch: How do you come up with the themes for each of the exhibits? Mayer: Well the last exhibit was Marie Antoinette themed. It was when the movie came out, so inspiration came from that. We had Marie Antoinette expressed in 3 different eras. It was really cool to see a fashion rock star Marie. This exhibit was inspired by the show “That Girl”. It was about an aspiring actress in New York City named ‘Ann Marie’ played by Marlo Thomas. The mod fashion is still relevant to today and can be seen in modern trends and what people are wearing.
Stitch: So can you tell us what the concept for the next exhibit will be? Mayer: We’re thinking Queen Victoria. The walls will be plaid, tons of pictures, the room will be completely different. You’ll have to come back and see!
We love how she has mastered both seasons here. She combines the warmth necessary to survive in winter, without looking extremely bulky. Loving the beret too, it really adds a splash of colour. The pin is a great way to add some character to any outfit.
I caught Allison on the phone. What I really like about this outfit is the combination of those leggings with those boots. Make sure you click on the picture to enlarge it and check out those leggings- they're awesome.
Alright, first things first... Sorry for the lack of posts recently! All of our lives have been really hectic lately, illness has been flying around campus, and frankly, its been really cold. But now that work is subsiding a little bit (and also we got our flu shots) we'll be booting back up full force!
This is going to be a different kind of post, we're going to call it a 'Fashion Tidbit'. We'll bring you the coolest information about fashion happenings so you can slip them into conversation and be perceived as an instant diva. True story.
So here goes:
Fendi this season (Spring/Summer 08 show) was shown at quite an odd location, The Great Wall of China... The Runway spanned 120 meters and was mostly down-hill. Because of how thin the wall is on top, only 2 rows of guests were allowed to be on either side. Also, check it out on youtube... the music is pretty cool.
(Note:Pictue is not our own, we got it from www.beijingtravelbug.com)
