Fashion Design

Fashion Design is the art of the application of design and aesthetics clothing and accessories. Fashion design is influenced by cultural and social attitudes, and has varied over time and place. Fashion designers work in a number of ways in designing clothing and accessories. Some work alone or as part of a team. They attempt to satisfy consumer desire for aesthetically designed clothing; and, because of the time required to bring a garment onto the market, must at times anticipate changing consumer tastes. Some designers in fact have a reputation which enables them to set fashion trends.
Australian Designers are some of the best in the international Fashion industry.

Perfect Birthday

As I am on my way to work on a very busy morning listening to the soothing melody of Micheal Buble. I am thinking of the next busy month ahead writing down the daily to do list and yes Spring racing carnival, workshops an exciting and full month ahead .... I stop and ponder.... This year has flown by and what a magic year we have had we are blessed. It is October already and only a few weeks away is my birthday and I close my eyes I cant believe its here once again. This time last year I would not think that we would be where we are today. I want something so simple this year, Something priceless, something far more valuable than money could buy. It is Quality time with the ones I truly love & this would be the perfect day to spend my birthday.

Wake up next to my husband
the first thing I see is his face, his
warm smile looking back at me

Followed by relaxing in the sun
letting it warm me up down into my core

Eating Cake and or eating my Mums famous lemon cheesecake
Everybody knows my mum makes the best cheesecake in the world

Followed by a home cooked dinner with my family,
every member of my family present at the table even Lucy, buster & Marley the families dogs

lots & lots of love & laughter
until my cheeks and tummy muscles hurt

Finished off with plenty of Snuggles and laughter with my Benny John Holder
Absolute Bliss

The "IT" Girl

Erin Wasson is the epitome of 'IT' girl of the moment: model, fashion icon, Alexander Wang’s friend & stylist, & designer collaborator with RVCA.

If she's not appearing on the cover of Vogue, ELLE or Esquire, Wasson is working as the muse and confidant of Alexander Wang, or styling the pages of ELLE magazine. If that's not enough, the model recently lanched a successful jewelery line and womenswear line with RVCA.
I love her style - Erin You go Girl !!

Crimped Wave Hair

The Crimped waved Locks
Many designers including Diane Von Furstenberg, Vivienne Tam, Mulberry and Catherine Malandrino sent crimped hair down the runway, it seems as if they may have been using Daryl Hannah's iconic mermaid as their muse. This time around, you need not bother with a
follicle damaging iron. The new, less dramatic crimp is best done with a triple barrel prong crimper or by sleeping with your hair a braids or plaits. Very simple and effortless just make sure you brush through after and hairspray in place. Its so easy I love this style it teams up well with the boho inspired look.

leopard love

Animal prints are always in style, and leopard print is classy and sassy without being trashy. Well, OK, sometimes it's a little bit trashy, but in the most fabulous and fashionable way possible. It has to worn right with confidence and balanced out in all the right ways. The dress in these images is a sass & bide dress. Sarah and Heidi always do animal prints, embellishment and tribal fabulous evrytime. Attention to detail and hand crafted to perfection.
Instead of a dominant print when wearing your LBD (little black dress) slip on a high pair of leopard print heels and red lip stick and be confident.
Model: Brooke Vardi
Label: Chase the sun
Styling/photography/creative director: Emma Holder

Future warrior

Military fashion may have been big for some time now... but guess what? It's evolving. Ancient warlords and kings have stormed the imagination of the fashion world, and elements of military history have been reinterpreted with a modern - often futuristic - twist. A little wilder, a little more fierce, the new military brings ancient civilisations and their warriors to life for this 2010 fashion trend. This fierce, sexy, powerful look is the next evolution of the military/tribal trend. Essentially it’s a mish mash of tribal elements and military detailing flash-forwarded to a futuristic age. It’s without question one of my top 10 trends to grace the runways this season. Because it's new it's fun it's different and it See's boundaries being stretched and pushed. It's Individual,Innovating.The designers and the creative directors should be proud. The Innovators of today !! Balmain, Sass & Bide and Balenciaga are just some of the labels to embrace Future Warrior. Versace’s take on the trend was much more romantic, contrasting harsh metallic breast-plate inspired detailing on the busts of dresses, with soft, flowing pastel fabrics.

Bohemian - Boho Chic

Also known as boho-chic, the bohemian style has been cropping up throughout this entire decade it seems to cycle in and out of fashion pretty regularly. It was made very stylish back in 2004 and 2005 when actress Sienna Miller was seen touting the style. Since that it’s popped up in various fashion collections. . However, the women's boho style of today is a bit different than it was just a few short years ago. It puts a more modern and chic spin on the bohemian style of yesteryear. Sure, there are hints of that hippie style that makes boho what it is but its done up in a much more glamorous style so that the modern woman can feel fashionable instead of frumpy when she’s putting together a boho look of her own. I remember it being a key look to have when I was in college, with broomstick skirts and peasant blouses. Then caftans and fringe were the thing a few seasons ago. That’s not to mention the 60’s and 70’s when this look was super popular. Except then, the look was referred to as ‘hippie style’. So, why do we call the style ‘bohemian’? Bohemianism first emerged in the early 19Th century when artists began to move into gypsy neighborhoods in Europe. "Bohemian" is applied to people who live unconventional, usually artistic, lives The term ‘bohemian’ refers to nontraditional, antiestablishment lifestyles. For clothing, dressing bohemian means expressing your creativity and individuality. The look can be quite messy with its many layers and accessories. Some fashionistas have claimed that to pull off this look, you have to perfect that messiness by maintaining an overall balance. In other words, don’t overdo it.Nicole Richie's fashion label winter Kate is heavily inspired by bohemianism and the gypsy style as she features paisley prints Maxi's and various peasant dress's. Misha Barton, Mary Kate, Kate Moss, Kimberley Stewart are other celebrities loving the Boho Chic style.

I have and will always had a soft spot for the Boho style but basically a more glammed up version of the basic boho style. I would say a little more Luxe. I can admit I am obsessed with floaty Maxi's, soft intricate paisley fabrics, earthy tones, floral, fringing and for the Samantha Wills collection 2 years ago featuring her Boho inspired collection including snakes, serpents, jewels, brass and gold chains,charms,cuffs and statement rings which I always seem to pull from my collection on a daily basis. Not to mention I love my collection of tan sandals, wedges, over sized sunnies, my angelic headband collection and my favourite lace and embroidery pieces. To be honest I don't like too much of the layering look, I like to think of my personal style with the Bohemian look is the super chic version of the bohemian trend " luxe look" .Not verging on the gypsy/ peasant over powering look. My top 3 Australian Label's that feature Boho luxe inspired collections would have to be Anu, Camilla and Fluerwood and accessories would hands down be the beautiful Samantha Wills.
