Month: March 2015
Typically on a snow day you will find me doing THIS!!!!…. Sledding and playing in the fresh powder like a carefree 5 year old.
However on this particular day the snow was far too wet to go sledding in, so Anna (my bestie/ amazing photographer) and I decided it would provide some awesome photos for the blog – and the journey began!
Fail number 1….We attempted various spots but the wind was far too severe and we both ended up soaked; soggy wet snow just isn’t what we expected – NO FUN! Finally we settled on some place closer to home – with a LOT less wind and some coverage from the obnoxious rain/snow. The below showcases what we shot – ENJOY!!!
Needless to say we made the most of some pretty crappy weather and had a ton of fun! You will quickly learn that I am a complete and…

This Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015, viewers have really been able to get a taste of fashion form around the world (see here). Designer Sonu Dharnidharka captured the elegance and classical looks from Grego-Roman fashion in an enigmatic and enchanting collection titled ‘Eos‘ for the RRISOlabel at the JabongStage. The silhouettes, inspired by Greco-Roman fashion, comprised an array of asymmetrical halter gowns, dresses, tops and skirts, which were carefully constructed to balance both flow and structure with ease and elegance. The showstopper for Sonu was Indian actress and diva, Neha Dhupia, who looked like a Greek goddess strutting down the catwalk in a high-collared tent shaped maxi dress with a light beige sheer overcoat that swept over the ramp with a gorgeous trail.
The color palette consisted of easy-to-wear shades of red, purple, blue, tangerine, yellow and green along with nude and pastel tones for those wanting…

With a New Year right here, we are again at that point of the year when we try to figure out what the next big thing in fashion will be. New fashion collections appear for 2015, like Alexander Wang’s, and we all do our best to prepare for a new year of innovation, one that seems to be a lot more interesting than 2014. The fashion world is always evolving. It changes and what is really hot right now will most likely be seen as an old, expired trend tomorrow. Fashion watchers now see the fashion industry practically introducing brand new looks every day to respond to an increase in demands.
The influence of social media
In the past, people were not that aware of trends, and fashion was not as important as it is now. Now, besides reading articles, social networks like Facebook and Twitter make it easy to quickly see fashion show images and videos, changing everything. There is a clear increase in demand and new designers appear, trying to come up with the new look and promoting it further through social media.
Social media also becomes an important medium for the small to medium sized fashion designers and retailers to sell, making it easier to increase profits. People are much more aware of what happens and in 2015 we will see even more traffic revolving around fashion sectors of social networks. We will see new fashion designers who try to use social media and the internet to sell and promote their creations. Becoming a fashion designer has become easy but we will not see many who will gain a lot of attention, although hundreds will most likely try to find their place in the sun.
If you are looking to get into the fashion industry but are not able to hit the design part or the clothes creation process, you may want to consider the nail polish economy. It is expected that 2015 will be a great year for that because there are many beauty buyers who will become self-conscious and will buy nail polish. There is a clear evolution in trends and in complexity when referring to nails. We even see leather nails becoming more attractive.
The fashion accessory we will surely see develop really fast in 2015 is the temporary tattoo. It is quickly becoming a hit on the aisle and on the runway. Very big fashion industry players like Chanel will invest in temporary tattoos as it launches a limited skin art edition.
Big labels are now shortening delays between runway shows and retail. Cavalli Group will surely do this and Burberry already has. This happens because of two reasons. For starters, new looks are introduced more frequently. Also, the evolution of the internet makes it easier for people to see and inevitably want what is offered on the runway. We will see more fashion lines launched in 2015 and a faster availability for all interested buyers.
