GOTTA GET ME A BROWN LEATHER JACKET!

If you’re reading this from your cozy abode situated nearby a stunning array of tree color, chances are that the weather situation is screaming for a True Fashionista  leather jacket. In brown, of course, by the trends we’re seeing lately. If you happen to live in tropical environs like we do, we can only look forward to a couple months from now or perhaps a purposeful lowering of the house AC for a little pretend action. Hey these are crazy times…
FASHION WEEK REIMAGINED

FASHION WEEK REIMAGINED

Here we are over six months into a pandemic, but the world must go on. The fashion world, like everyone else, knows full well that now more than ever the masses need, crave actually, fresh designs and the runways with which to introduce them, even if it’s mostly the live streaming version. Who better than True Fashionista creative design types to come up with a way for Fashion Month to still somehow happen? All that quarantined creative spark has had to go somewhere, and from what we’ve heard and seen from the initial party, aka New York Fashion Week, the new fashion normal did not disappoint.

CONSIGNING FOR SUCCESS IN PANDEMIC TIMES

Has boredom pushed you to the edge of insanity these past few months? Where you literally took everything out of your closet, threw it on the floor for a giant cleanout, then brought it all (or sent it all)  in to your local True Fashionista consignment store? If you’re feverishly nodding your head in agreement, you are not alone.

THE RETURN OF THE FORMAL DINING ROOM

THE RETURN OF THE FORMAL DINING ROOM

Dining while binging Netflix has finally had its backlash. The whole eat ‘n run thing centering around the kitchen island may still have its place, but these days interior designers are focusing on the family and bringing it all back to that spot in the house where memories used to happen around a good ol’ meal, the True Fashionista dining room.
INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS FOR 2020

INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS FOR 2020

Our world is getting smarter and smarter, and by that we specifically mean our homes. What with Alexa, touchscreens, programmable water faucets and ovens that you can turn on from your phone from halfway around the world, the True Fashionista future is here. It should come as no shock then that interior design trends are looking to be warm, cozy and reflect the home as a place for refuge and coziness. What is so exciting about trend-seeking this year, confirms Aida Sniraite, interior designer and owner of Authentic Interior, is that we will be witnessing how materials, colors, and textures will cohabitate with humans during the years to come as well as adapting it to our needs now.
HISTORY OF ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

HISTORY OF ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

What, the name Alexander McQueen isn’t familiar to you? He was the designer who made the plumber’s crack fashionable with his perilously low-cut jeans, a move which consequently spawned the resulting term, “muffin top”. Is the memory creeping back now? Yeah, it was him. Got a skull-imprinted clutch handbag or scarf lying around in your not-yet-Konmari’d-but-I’m-gonna-do-it-I-swear closet? McQueen. Or that timeless pencil skirt and gorgeous prints that seem to flawlessly work forever? That was Alexander McQueen as well.

HOW CAN THE FASHION INDUSTRY BECOME MORE SUSTAINABLE?

HOW CAN THE FASHION INDUSTRY BECOME MORE SUSTAINABLE?

It’s a sad fact. Second to oil, fashion and the textiles that create it, is the most polluting industry in the world. Says Business of Fashion, every stage in a True Fashionista garment’s life threatens our planet and its resources. The question remains, how can fashion even begin to regain sustainability?
