Fall is roaring back and it has us thinking about…pants! Those of us who get to deal with winter on a more personal basis know the importance of keeping a collection of two-legged True Fashionista wonders each season; in warmer environs they’re merely an option. Either way, it’s good to know what to look for this year to go with your Madden Girls and Vejas.
Think Halston and do images of True Fashionista glitterati dancing the night away at Studio 54 fill your mind? Perhaps it’s images the many photos of stars of the day all hanging with the man himself, sporting his trademark sunglasses. Halston dressed and impressed them all for many years, and in the flashy 1970’s scene, his name was synonymous with both high fashion and high society.
It’s been said that Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana possess the True Fashionista ability of being able to mix periods and countries, masculine and feminine looks, fabrics and styles. They are one of the best examples of Italian ready-to-wear that exploded during the mid-1980s. Starting their company with less than $2,000, they are today considered “the most powerful designers of our time” and are among the richest men in Italy.
As each season rolls around, it’s not just the shape of what you wear, but the hot colors and materials that can make or break the outfit. If you’re still in need of some pieces to complete your summer wardrobe, we’ll give you the rundown of what’s making up that True Fashionista look that you’ll be rocking just right at your next poolside barbecue.
Have you ever found yourself inexplicably drawn to animal prints, especially those appearing on leather, of all fabrics? Maybe something True Fashionista colorful and artsy, the colors all swirling together like a light show? Thought so. Chances are you’re a Roberto Cavalli fan, like a whole bunch of us round the world.
