    Balenciaga

    Balenciaga – Nicolas Ghesquiere

    When the great Cristobal Balenciaga closed the doors of his coutoure house in 1968, he lamented. There is no one left worth dressing. For decades, the house lay dormant, until 26 year old Frenchman Nicolas Ghesquiere was appointed creative director of Balenciaga in 1997 after the departure pf Josephus Thimister.

    Since 1995, Ghesquiere had quietly freelanced for Balenciaga’s licences. Three year later, Ghesquiere won the Vogue VH1 Avant Garde tribune called him the most intriguing and original designer of his generation. Through relatively unknown when he was appointed to Balenciaga,  his a life in fashion. He won work placements at Agnes B. and Corinne Cobson while still at school in London, central france.

    At 19, he become an assistant designer to Gaultier and then Mugler, before a brief tenure as head designer at Trussardi. But his great achievement has been his revival of Balenciaga. His green silk crop combat pants for Spring/Summer 2002 were the most copied garment of the season and Neoprene mini skirts and dresses for spring summer 2003 kept Balenciaga on the edge, creatively and commercially. In 2002, a menswear line was launched, a year after the house of Balenciaga was bought by the Gucci group.

    For Autumn/Winter 2005, he showed A-line leather dresses trimmed with pale ostrich feathers and sleek tailoring fitted with chrome fastening. He was elected as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by Time magazine in 2006, and awarded the prestigious Insigne de Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres for his continued creativity in 2008. Under his influence, Balenciaga today includes seven extremely lusted-after diffusion lines.

    Balenciaga Edition, a collection of items inspired by Cristobal Balenciaga haute couture archives Balenciaga Denim, Black Dress and Silk. Former Gucci CEO Domenico de Sole has said: Balenciaga has one fantastic asset. He’s called Nicolas Ghesquiere.

    Top sheer wedding dress

    Top sheer wedding dress

    The top wedding gowns with this season’s hottest trend: sheer panelling

    The 2015 bride knows all about sheer panelling in her big day outfit. Whether it’s across the chest, down the back or adorning her midriff, having a little flash of flesh is certainly all the rage.

    For another 2015, 2016 trend that flashes a bit more flesh, check this out!  http://www.gloria-agostina.com/en/49-sexy-wedding-dresses-from-gloria-agostina

    Therefore without much ado, feast your eyes on the top sheer wedding dress styles for 2015, 2016:

    This stunning number from the Gloria Agostina collection 2016 uses sheer panelling to create an exquisite sort of ethereal look that will complement any bride. The panelling at the front eliminates the need for jewellery as the delicate embellishment evokes a feel of couture-meets-classic in sweet harmony.

    Even though she may deny it, Kate Middleton is definitely a fashion icon, therefore since donning her beautiful sleeved wedding gown at her nuptials, sleeves have been in, and will continue to be in for a long time yet. This Gloria Agostina collection 2016 collection piece beautifully uses sheer to create a delicate sleeve which complements the overall delicate look this dress evinces.

    Brides and their tastes come in all different shapes and sizes and it is obvious that Gloria Agostina recognises this fact and has brought it to life in this sizzling hot wedding dress. Through the use of sheer panelling, a delicate balance between risqué and modest has been achieved, which the non-conventional bride will love!

    Nothing says spring like bursts of colour, flowers and shades of pastel that create a balance in the blends of colour. Claire Pettibone thrills yet again with this piece from her 2015 Spring Collection. Noteworthy is that the panels create a blush effect that compliments warmer skin tones to give a glorious glow.

    Another piece from the Claire Pettibone’s Spring Collection combines chic with rustic through the use of sheer panels to create the perfect wedding dress for the unconventional bride. Although it combines the elements of spring, this number can easily fit right into a wedding to occur in any of the seasons. This piece is definitely timeless.

    One of the main reasons designers take delight in working with sheer is that looks all the romantic anf flattering. Sheer panelling facilitates the enhancement of a relatively simple dress because it lends itself to the use of delicate beads and appliqués, as pictured here to create a beautiful gown. This piece will undoubtedly fit very well on the petite bride whose style is more on the conservative side.

    Very few dresses manage to toggle the fine line that separates simplicity in artistry from plain weird. This Gemy Maalouf Spring 2015 piece combines sheer with embroidery pieces to definitely sit squarely in the realm of simplicity in artistry that any bride will love.

    There can be no denying, after looking at this amazing Gemy Maalouf Spring 2015 piece that sheer has the power to completely transform styles we have seen before into glorious, modern wedding dresses. The sheer panel in this piece will cause the onlookers to take a very good look at the bride, for she will be stunning at the front and intriguing at the back.

    Once again the Gloria Agostina collection 2016 collection shows why sheer is the designer’s joy to work with. There is no other fabric that could be used to achieve the look of this piece without causing one feature or the other to be lost. The use of sheer here facilitates the showing of gorgeous floral detail without being crowded out by excess fabric underneath.

    Kate & Laura Mulleavy – Rodarte

    Kate & Laura Mulleavy – Rodarte

    And the winners are: Rodarte.In Zürich November 2008 , Kate and Laura Mulleav  won the presitgious Swiss Textile Award and much needed injection of cash. Kate and Laura have been familiar name on the fashion award nominations roster in the last few years. Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award 2005, nominated to CFDA Swarovski Emerging Womenswear Designer award 2006, runner-up in the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund and star awarded the Star Honoree Award from Fashion Group International 2011.

    The two sisters born in 1979 and 1980 grew up with unconventional parents in the post hippie paradise of Santa Cruz, California, before studying liberal arts at the University of California, Berkley. After graduation the two sisters moved back to their parents home in Pasadena, where they founded Rodarte named after their mother’s Mexican maiden name. When american Vogue editor Anna Wintour spotted their special talents in a Women’s Wear Daily feature, the girls were airlifted to New York and presented their first runaway collection in 2005, which was an instant success.

    Buyers from Barneys in New York to Colette in Paris were among the first support team. Their special mix of theatrical and cinematic fabrics, colours and artisan techniques combined with a naive, almost amateur enthusiasm has created their own personal fan club, Somewhere between sci-fi , salvage and culture, each collection launches a wave of copycats, which may amount to some idea of flattery.

    Rodarte created costumes for the film Black Swan. Nominated for Best Costume Design for the 2011 Critics Choice movie award, Kate and Laura designed the costumes for the Swan Lake ballet, as well as other iconic pieces worn by Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis in the film.

    Rodarte’s creations feature complex manipulation of materials and other meticulous techniques evocative of haute couture through an American lens. The Mulleavys deliver emotionally powerful, dynamic collections that interweave extremely hard and delicate elements simultaneously. “The Mulleavys’ instinctive approach and lack of traditional fashion training give their collections a fresh point of view while always managing to be sophisticated and experimental; something completely unique within American fashion,” said Gregory Krum, director of retail at Cooper-Hewitt, who is curating the installation along with Susan Brown, assistant curator in the Textiles Department.

    The sisters confidence is growing with every accolade, opening up their shyness and opportunities to expand their international clientele. Their collection is currently available at over 40 world premier fashion outlets.

    10 ways to be the coolest bride ever – from your future bridesmaid

    10 ways to be the coolest bride ever – from your future bridesmaid

     

    Dear Future Best Bride Friend,

    I’m so excited that you’ve chosen me to be your bridesmaid! If I’m in your bridal party, I promise to always stand by you and support you as you plan your wedding day. As a good friend/sister/relative, I want to help make your wedding journey as enjoyable and un-stressful as it can be. But you have to try and do the same for me! As much as it’s your big day, I’ll be along with you for the ride, and we’ll both have a much better time if we’re both happy. With that in mind, I think you’ll be the coolest bride ever if you just follow these 10 simple rules…

    Photography

    1. Give us color swatches to choose from, and then let us choose our own bridesmaids dresses. That way we’ll have something we love and is flattering, and you’ll have us looking just the way you pictured!

    2. The Decorista

    And if you don’t like our choices? Chances are we kept the receipt, just in case. But seriously, how cute are these mismatched bridesmaids? You know you’re into it.

    If you want us to wear heels, take care of our feet. We’ll put up with it for you, but we’ll be a little sad if we end the night with blisters or twisted ankles! Please don’t make us wobble-walk on grass – think about investing in heel-stoppers!

    And we’re definitely going to want to dance the night away. More comfy shoes are preferred, so we’re not trying to brave the dance floor in bare feet!

    3.  Loosen us up the morning of the big day. We want to celebrate with you, and be nice and relaxed for the ceremony! We won’t say no to some drinks, snacks, and extra pampering.

    4. Shower us with presents! While we love doing this for you, it’s nice to get some gifts for helping you out. We’ll want to party and celebrate, so it’d be nice to have kits for hangovers after the bachelorette and wedding day.

    Oh, and personal thank you gifts are always appreciated – it’ll give us a special way to remember being a part of your wedding!
    5. If you want us to rock crazy or complicated hairstyles for the wedding, offer to pay for it. Trust us – there’s no way that we’ll figure out these ‘dos by ourselves, and you’ll be happier if we look just the way you want.
    6. If I don’t know anyone, introduce me to all the bridesmaids beforehand so we have time to be friends. Fun outings, lunch, or nights out are a great way to get us together before the big day.
    7. Warn me of creepy groomsmen, or set me up with the hottie if I’m single! I’d love to have the best time possible at your big day.
    8. Don’t make me compete for your attention. I know you love your other bridesmaids, but things can get awkward fast if two best friends or sisters are vying for your time.
    9. I’m happy to help you out with most things – DIY projects, picking up dresses, or mailing invites are all expected. But don’t ask me last minute for my help, or resent me if I can’t make it. I have other things to do too!
    10. If you’re not stoked about the bachelorette party we’re planning, then please don’t throw a fit – this is our event to plan for you! Instead, hint nicely about one or two things you’d be excited to do. And if it’s a trip to Vegas that we can’t afford, offer to pitch in.
    I can’t wait to celebrate with you, and be a part of your bridal party! I promise I’ll be a cool bride to you too. Congrats, girl!

Proposals coming designers with architectural forms that hide fine lines or special delicacy. The cuts are daring, innovative design and sophisticated.
    COLOR. From red to white dresses spotted pink or red corset imperial color take over almost any collection presented at Fashion Week in Barcelona or New York.
