    Vivienne Westwood

    Vivienne Westwood is a legend in her own lifetime, a designer who inspires many other designers and who makes clothes that delight her loyal custemers.

    Born in Derbyshite in 1941, she first become a household name when in partnership with Malcom McLaren, she invented the punk uniform. Let in Rock, SEX, Seditionaries, Pirates, and Buffalo Girls were all early collections they created toghether at their shop in World’s End, Chelsea. All become classics and served to challenge common preconceptions of what fashion could be. Since severing business ties with McLaren, Westwood has gone on to become one of the most revered figures within the fashion industry. She has achieved all this without any formal training. In the 80`s , she was hailed by Women’s Wear Daily as one of the six most influential designer of all time, and in 2004 the Victoria & Albert Museum launched a travelling retrospective exhibition defining her iconic status.

    There is an intellectual method to the madness of her creative energy. Historical references, techniques and fabrics are intrinsic to her approach to design. Her subversive shapes and constructions have consistenly proved to be ahead of their time. Awarded an OBE  years after being arrested on the night of the Qeen’s Silver Jubilee, she has now become a part of the establishment she continues to oppose. Today she shows her ready-to-wear women’s collection in Paris and a menswear collection. MAN in Milan. While the interest in vintage Westwood has never been more intense, her diffusion line Anglomania regularly references pieces from her earlier collections.

    Westwood also has three bestselling perfumes – Libertine, Boudoir and Anglomania. and has shops all over the world. She wrote a cultural manifesto called Active resistance to propaganda as a call to arms for all intellectuals against passive acceptance of propaganda and obsessive consumption. In , Westwood showed her Red Label in London after almost a decade of absence and called on other British brands that now only show abroad to follow her example. 2011 saw the Queen of Punk celebrate 40 years in the fashion industry.

    That year proved Zac Posen

    Zac Posen

    At a young age, Zac Posen has already earned a place in fashion history. His leather dress, designed for the Curvaceous exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, was awarded the V&A Prize and acquired for the museume`s permanent collection in 2001. This event marked the beginning of great things for the young New York native.

    Born in 1980, the son of a painter, Posen enrolled in the pre-college programme at the Parsons School of Design, later joining Saint Anna`s School for the Arts in Brooklyn. His fashion studies led him to Central Saint Martins in 1999, where he embarked on a BA in womenswear. However, he soon packed in his studies in order to start his own label, which was an immediate success.

    His glamorous signatures include bias-cuts gowns, fishtails hemlines and a passion for screen-siren style. His talent was swiftly recognised by the fashion industry: he was a finalist for the ENKA International Fashion Design Award in 2002 and a nominee for the CFDA Award for new talent in both 2002 and 2003 before winning the Perry Ellis Award in 2004. That year proved to be a groundbreaking period for Posen. In April , Sean John, the fashion company backed by Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs, announced it was a long-term investment in Posen`s label. However, it is Posen who continues to steer the label creatively, driving it forward with his vision of a strong, feminine silhouette.

    With Sean John`s financial backing, the days when he was forced to fund his first catwalk show with the 14.000 £ prize from a fashion competition are a distant memory. Free from monetary restraints,and with his sister leading his Tribeca studio,he is now able to concentrate on expanding his ready-to-wear collection and developing his accesories line.

    Show your legs – Schöne beine Zeigen!

    Mit einem kurzen Rock muss sich die Braut am Hochzeitstag keine Gedanken über schmutzige Säume und Stolper fallen aus Stoff machen!

    Vor allem an kleinen und zierlichen Frauen wirken kurze Kleider sehr vorteilhaft, da der Blick auf die Beine optisch die Körperlänge streckt und zudem sexy wirkt.

    Roberto Cavalli

    Roberto Cavalli born in 1940 Florence,designs some of the most glamorous clothes in fashion: baroque combinations of exotic feathers, overblown florals, animal prints and incredibly lightweight leathers comprise the signature Cavalli look for day or night, which is always shown on his Milan runway atop the highest heels and with the biggest blow-dried hair in the city.

    In winter collections, fur – the most extravagant the better, is dominant. And to think it all started on a ping-pong table. This is where, as a student at Florence Academy of Art, Cavalli began to experiment with printing on leather, later patenting a similat technique. The son of a tailor and the grandson of a reverend painter, Cavalli is an expert embellisher and decotor of textiles. After founding his own fashion company in the early `60 , Cavalli was one of the first to put leather on a catwalk, patchworking it toghether for his debut show in 1972.

    Cavalli was an outsider to high fashion during the 80 `s , but staged a remarkable comeback in the 90`s. In this renaissance period, Cavalli has become the label of choice among the R&B aristocracy, not to mention any starlet with both the bravado and the body to carry off one of his attention-seeking frocks. Assisted by his second wife, Eva Düringer, a former Miss Universe, Cavalli brought his distinctive look, a unique combination of thrusting sex appeal, artisanal prints and frankly eccentric themes and catwalk shows – to the Milan collections, where press and clients alike received him with open arms.

    The collections bearing his name now include Just Cavalli, a menswear line, childrenswear line and perfume licences, among others. In 2003 ,his company scored a turnover of 289 milion $ and its collections are distributed in more than 50 countries.

    Roberto Cavalli also owns one of italy`s best racehorse stud farms.

    7 reasons that prevent loss weight

    A few tips that helps you to understand what are the reasons who prevent you loss weight:

    Why you cannot lose weight?

    Why you cannot lose weight?

    You quit smoking recently

    If you have recently quit smoking, then the chance of losing weight is zero. According to studies, one of three women who quit smoking get fat by 3-4 kg, and 10% of them over 10 kg. Nutritionists say that nicotine in cigarettes stimulates burning calories in the body. When you stop smoking, this burning is reduced by 200-300 kcal per day. So if you keep a diet, you quit smoking and yet don’t lose weight is to blame nicotine. The solution is to make moving day and wait several months for your body to break free from nicotine addiction.

    Excessive eating of salad

    Even if you its sound paradoxical, lettuce consumed in excessive amounts, can cause weight gain. Why? Because lettuce leaves themselves when they taste bland and are tempted to add more oil and salt, foods that have more calories and stimulates water retention. In addition, the absence of meat protein is not good for the figure cies because of fatigue and lead to a massive loss of muscle tissue.

    You drink plenty of light drinks

    If you always choose light drinks, believing that they are allied with your figure, you’re wrong. Of course they are preferable to the ordinary, but the best would be to not include them all in your menu. This is because more than 500 ml per day drink light stimulates the pancreas to secrete more insulin. This hormone slows down fat burning and increase appetite in the following hours. So if you want to lose weight, choose still or sparkling water with a slice of lemon.

    Your meals are hypo caloric

    If at breakfast or lunch you ate who knows what… is normal for the rest of the day to consume all kinds of snacks to get full. Biscuits, chocolate, cereal bars, each of these foods contain more calories, fat and carbohydrates than a regular lunch. The solution? Eat your full breakfast and lunch and choose a fruit or yogurt for snacks.

    You take hypotensive pills

    Beta blockers drugs for people with high blood pressure or other heart problems reduces the power consumption of the body, slowing down the weight loss process. If you follow such treatment, but your doctor may recommend foods that stimulate the burning of the body.

    You have entered menopause

    No, it is not a myth that menopause is always accompanied by weight problems. The two years preceding menopause and the two years following this process causes hormonal chaos. This causes a significant increase in appetite and water retention, which makes impossible any diet. Nutritionists advice? Although it seems to be very hard, closely monitor your diet menu and hold a full installation only after menopause, when hormonal balance processes.

    You have thyroid problems

    When functions are slow thyroid (hypothyroidism mention here), the body burns less calories, resulting in weight gain. Any diet you try, it will not work because the burning of the body is slowed. Only your endocrinologist may recommend treatment to help you. What are the signs of a thyroid problem? A constant feeling of cold, bowel problems, impaired concentration and memory.

    So if you keep tried a diet and didn’t work. See what’s going on with you. Gloria Agostina will also help you a little bit. We will place in the future delicious recipe of salads, to help you make your diet more delicious!

    So…don’t give up! :)
