So, Kendrick Lamar leads the pack with 11 Grammy nominations for his “To Pimp A Butterfly” album and is up for Song of The Year with “Alright.” While it’s rare that I talk about music, one cannot argue that Kendrick Lamar gave us an amazingly raw artistic expression with this album.
In this age of racism, sexism and leaders preaching xenophobia, “Alright” has been used as an anthem of protest for young people. While you may not understand this, the album gives you a starking point of view that cannot be ignored. Congratulations Kendrick on your Grammy nominations, I hope you win them all.
As the weather starts to turn to winter, I am reminiscent of this past summer. And I am already looking forward to Spring 2016.
After having finished FIT, I’ve been on the grind working on some special projects including new artwork and fashion sketches. Art has been my therapy for years. I can get lost with a brush and some color.
Speaking of artwork, we’ve got some great prints that would make fabulous holiday gifts. We can also take your favorite print and make pillows, coffee mugs and other items. Head over to the artwork shop and inquire within for more info!
I’m all here for a good fashion film, especially when it’s to debut a new collection. After enjoying my Tom Fordknee-high boots, I am a big fan. Lady Gaga is always popping up in some of the most creative spaces. “Instead of having a traditional show this season, I decided to try something new. I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online,” Tom says. Bravo, Tom, Bravo.
Creativity ran abound during the Milan Fashion Week Moschino show. A construction zone and cleanup was the inspiration. I just loved the accessories in this show! Who would ever have thought that those construction cones would make a great hat? Bravo for originality Moschino!
I have to say that I was a little disappointed in what I found this year at ENK Coterie for Spring 2016. There wasn’t that much to choose from or of interest. The shows were cool but let’s be frank, some of the best we saw from New York Fashion Week was the Givenchy show. Anyway, I did stumble upon some cute finds, saw lots of color and sequins (everywhere). Sequins and fringe. That’s definitely going to be big for next year’s spring season.
I also came across Chiara Ferragni’s new shoe collection. It’s very colorful and playful. Some it was a bit too loud for me. Cupcakes and Cashmere launched a new clothing line for Spring 2016. I had no idea she was doing clothing but guess so. I couldn’t get photos though because they hadn’t been released yet but these samples were really cool.
I came across this beautiful collection available for pre-order on ModaOperandi recently. The designer’s name is Marina Hoermanseder and she simply created a fashion flower field fantasy land of a collection. The items are just lovely and as feminine as you can get. Wear to tea or brunch with the ladies or just on a day out. Just breathtaking.
