Is Fashion Turning to Craft

I’ve always seen fashion as a reflection of your sense of what you term beautiful.

All of the greatest fashion designers who have ever lived on the face of this earth created each piece of clothing with the inspiration that came from events that happened, people they’ve met or places they have been to. They used their talent to paint a picture of a man or woman with personality and character. Fashion designers spoke through the clothes they create.

But where does it all come from?

Everyday you wake up in the morning and mix and match your clothes together just to find the right ensemble to make you feel confident enough to step out of your house and start a new day. Who doesn’t want to look good, right?

But the more I studied the fashion industry and the dynamics behind it, I started to realize that there’s more depth to just putting items of clothing together.

Have you ever sat down to listen to what fashion commentators say about a fashion designer once their models have left the runway? They analyze every single piece, touching different aspects of it from the colour palette the designer used, the clever cutting, the genius behind their choice of fabric and even the mood the pieces vibrate.

There are even blogs nowadays where people give their own comments on the latest fashion. Whenever I make my Outfit Posts, I also drop my own perception of the outfit I chose to wear for the day. In a nutshell, everything that comes with your outfit has its meaning and defines your style.

Fashion stylists have a special place in the fashion industry. They know exactly how to put together the right items to create the desired effect. For example, there are some clothes that can either flatter your assets or hide them from view. There are also outfits that can make you look taller, shorter, fatter, or slimmer than you naturally are.

We would say that such people know the laws behind optical illusions, but they know their craft. They know the weight of the effect clothes can have on your style and the way people perceive you.

We’re slowly moving towards an age where nothing goes to chance or mere guessing anymore. There are angles, dimensions, rules, laws, perceptions, theories and history behind fashion now. People no longer observe fashion and let it just simply slide by. People study fashion and everything associated with it.

A stitch, cut or trimming can alter the balance of your style. If you choose the wrong outfit in the wrong season or you feel you could carry over an item of clothing, you need to think carefully about it. You need to be precise with fashion.

Does this mean that just because fashion is a craft no one else can get it right? Absolutely not! Fashion is also born from inspiration. You may experience a spark that will unleash your most magnificent style. There’s really no limit to how far you can go.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think fashion is a craft?

Alexa Chung Covers British Vogue June 2017

The stunning model-turned-TV-host-turned-designer – Alexa Chung, covers British Vogue June 2017, and she looks great on it.

Alexa Chung is no stranger to magazine covers. She has appeared on many magazine covers already. But this British Vogue’s cover stands out from the rest. I like this bright and bold cover. It was photographed by the legendary Mario Testino and styled by Lucinda Chambers, and Chung looks all shades of amazing on it.

I have read a few negative comments about this particular Vogue cover, and I am not sure what they mean. I love the background and the red fonts on the cover, her makeup  also tick all the right boxes, so it is a good cover for me. I am not sure about outfit she has on though, or the pose, but it is still a good cover. I think Vogue did a great job with this.

I hear Alexa Chung has a new fashion label – Alexachung, and I can’t wait to see how the pieces look like. I am sure they would be super stylish, as she has an amazing fashion sense.

Speaking with Vogue’s Fashion Features Editor, Ellie Pithers; Alexa Chung spoke about why she decided to launch her fashion label and more –

“This is a moment in my life where I felt I could dedicate all my attention in one direction. Age has something to do with it… I’m young enough and excited enough to start something new, but old enough to have learnt a bit. And confident enough to think I could pull it off.”

I am happy for her. Looks like she has found herself. And I am happy she wants to open a shop. I would love to see that dream come true.

What are your thoughts on this cover? Have you read this issue? Will you be reading it?

 

 

 

 

 

Style Icon – Nick Cannon

The style icon today is the stylish Nick Cannon. For those who do not know, Nicholas Scott “Nick” Cannon is an American rapper, actor, comedian, entrepreneur, record producer, radio and television personality.

Nick Cannon is famous for being the lead act in the movie Drumline, and he is also famous for being once married to the talented and beautiful Mariah Carey. The couple were so in love, Nick even got a tattoo of her name ‘Mariah’ written boldly on his back, but has since had it removed. In other to get rid of the tattoo, he got a massive crucified Jesus on the top of it, which looks good on him. He is so lucky that there are now effective ways to get rid of tattoos, or he would have been left with the name of his ex on his back for life. Can you imagine that? That would suck so bad. I wonder why these celebs (and people in love in general) never learn. Having the name of your lover on your body is a very bad idea, because you never know what would become of your love.

I do hope Nick and Mariah get back together. I think they look good as couple, and I like them together. Their twins are super gorgeous and they make a great team. Rumour has it that they are back together, but on the down low and are looking to get married again, so fingers and toes crossed for them.

Nick Cannon’s style is so cool, and that is the reason why he is my style icon today. His style is daring, fun and eccentric. He has the charisma and charm to look good in anything, and he knows it.

Nick Cannon definitely deserves the spot as a Style Icon. What do you think?
