Rodarte & Pics from fashion week

SO for classes weve had to keep watch of fashion week. Alexandre Herchcovitch, I thought, had a great collection and some what reminded me of a few characterisitcs of my clown collection but... I this collection is so rad. Lots of colors and interesting combinations of shapes and really appropriate fabric choice which I think totally works for the pieces.
Hah..so my fashion professors are sick of 80s inspired collections. Betsey Johnson was one of a small number who served a fairly good 80s collection. I do like the outfits but I just think they're repititive and have been seen before. I do, however like it alot and would wear most of the dresses.

I first read about Rodarte in Nylon and wanted to look more into it. The collection IS COMPLETELY insane in the best way possible. ughhh.. There weren't really any pictures but here's a link to a video style.com offers which is def a must see...! I would kill to meet Kate and Mulleavy, who are the designers fo Rodarte. They are inspired by cinema films and are dark and are made of complete fantasticness. http://www.style.com/fashionshows/designerdirectory/RODARTE/video/

Off to study for textiles test and do more sketches 8n/

Christophe Decarnin's rocker chic collection showed at the Ritz, same place where Versace showed off his couture collections. I love the rounded "tennis ball" effect on the jackets and the jeans are just spectacular. The colors of course are so hott and then the bonus of added Swarovski crystals shot it to a new level. But, critics say that he'll need to bump up his game for next seasons.... personally I LOVE the entire collection and wouldn't mind having each of those fabulous garments in my closet!!! Pretty much anyone would look sexy and fierce in these outfits!

Okay so I watched an 80s movie with Julia Roberts and Liam Neeson called Satisfaction about a group of girls in a band. The lead singer has the coolest style, Jeenie, this shirt reminds me of something she would wear besides that I totally love it too. I actually think I've seen a girl on Lookbook who has this shirt too!

I just really like this shade of pink and its crocheted! Crochet cotton dress $80

Researching for internships and doing billions of homework and apparel design work hasn't really given me the time to make a posting but I am finally caught up since I started a week late into my classes. I'm crossing my fingers for my overseas internship though. I sent it to Topshop in London. So we'll see........!!!!

Currently working on sketches for my two assignments for my portfolio class. One collectioin inspired by two eras, I did 80s and 1700s, the other collection is our first collection that we will have to choose a favorite design to put into our portfolio for jobs and such so my inspiration for that one is clowns. ;) I know it's silly but I thought it would be fun and diffferent.
Back to the posting now...So I hope you liked it these were just some of the pieces I am crazed for...
