BACK INTO BLACK FOR SPRING

BACK INTO BLACK FOR SPRING

The endearing color of cool is poised to maintain right into spring. Granted, black is as True Fashionista  a color as ever. However, in the face of our ongoing pandemic situation, emphasis on black makes that statement of commitment toward the fight that continues in the US and worldwide.
REMEMBERING PIERRE CARDIN

REMEMBERING PIERRE CARDIN

French designer and household name Pierre Cardin passed away December 29, 2020 at age 98. We pause to give reverence to a True Fashionista visionary in men’s and women’s fashion whose decades-long career had many notable successes. He pioneered the now common practice of designer licensing by putting his name not just on his ready-to-wear clothes but also on luggage, carpets, kitchen appliances, watches, sunglasses and much more. He was also the first French designer to create a ready-to-wear line of clothing rather than custom-order clothing in 1954. A decade later he became the first women’s designer to launch a collection for men with his famous necktie, eventually expanding to a full line. Cardin was also the first French couturier to break into the Asian and Soviet fashion markets, staging the first French couture fashion show in Beijing in 1979.

HISTORY OF MANOLO BLAHNIK

Oh no here it comes…another Sex in the City reference in this here blogsphere. Blame Carrie Bradshaw and her obsession with True Fashionista Manolo Blahnik shoes, as she so famously quoted:

“You can take my Fendi baguette. You can take my ring and watch but you can’t take my Manolo Blahniks.”
