Parkas at Vera Wang Fall 2011….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Week

Vera Wang can class-up anything! Case in point is Vera’s recent fall 2011 collection filled with a fashionable assortment of PARKAS… (Yes, you are reading that right, I said parkas). This isn’t the parka of yesterday, made of polyester with down feathers enclosed in neat rows of casings that made everyone look like an overstuffed snowman but instead a high fashion parka  adorned with feathers or fur lining and made of the  finest wools and cashmeres.. Like I said…Vera Wang can class up anything!

St. John Debuts at NY Fashion Week!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Week

St. John has FINALLY joined the runway at New York Fashion Week. For as long as anyone can remember,  when you thought of  the St. John label you thought one word and one word only- KNITS. It’s no wonder because the brand had “knit” everything: suits, skirts, pants, coats, – all made of the SAME knit fabrication. Thank goodness things have evolved at this label. On Tuesday, St. John, strutted a bevy of beautiful ensembles for Fall 2011 made of fur, sequins, satin, silk, wool, and cashmere. The look was elegant, upscale and GORGEOUS! St. John went the extra mile to adorn their outfits with costume jewelry from their new line designed by Neville Ward.

NY Fashion Week 2010…

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week officially ended today!

I know you’re probably thinking I have really slipped up and not reported ASAP on all the latest and greatest for Spring RTW 2011…I assure you that I only have the best intentions for your wardrobe…really I do. This is just my way to keep you FOCUED on the task at hand-FALL FASHION. For now I am withholding the “goods”. (And by goods: I am referring to the Spring 2011 RTW collections that I have downloaded at warp speed for posting at a later date.

A true Glamour Girl likes to be on the cusp of all information concerning fashion-but for goodness sake I just rotated my closet and have yet to embrace my latest faux fur purchase! (Didn’t we just say good-bye to summer a mere 10 days ago)?Just give me a moment…let me re-boot my brain, take a cashmere sweater count, polish my thigh high leather boots and stash the last swimsuit in storage.

 I promise to return and embrace with you what will keep us “cool” for Spring 2011.In the meantime open a window and let the chill of Fall air keep you Focused.

Couture Clips…..

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Week

The Paris Fall and Winter Couture shows are going on at this very moment… If your not familiar with the Concept of Couture, I can boil it down to a mere few words…Couture brings the very best in design, fabrications and “custom fit” from the top designers.  “Affordable,” for only the very rich, very famous or very much living over their means. Trust me Glamour Girls, you are not going to find any of these frocks in Macy’s but you will see “cheaper versions” ( a sort of knock-off) in the near future. They won’t be made of the magnificent fabrics as Couture nor will they be custom fit for you and only you, BUT they will be much more attainable to the masses…. SO here below is a small sampling of what has been transpiring in Parie.e.e.e.e.

Givenchy

 

Valentino

 

Alexis Mabille

 

Elie Saab

 

Jean Paul Gaultier

Drama at Dior.

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Week

After the long holiday weekend, are you looking for a little pick- me- up? How about a splash of color to really get you past the mid-week slump…o.r.r.r.r… perhaps, a teensy weensy bit of “DRAMA” in your day just to keep  things interesting.  

This should do the trick.

The Dior Fall Winter Couture Collection, courtesy of that zany, off-beat avant-garde designer John Galliano…  Enjoy!

The Return of Old Hollywood Glam!

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Week

Leave it to Giorgio Armani the “Master of Sophistication and Ultimate Chic” to bring the glamour of Old Hollywood back! This was never more apparent than in his current Fall and Winter “Couture” Collection-currently gracing the runways in Paris. This collection evokes an era of long ago when women looked like glamour goddesses, and every curve was accented to it’s very best…(Think: The fashions of  Mad Men times 10).

Thank you Mr. Armani,  for this return to glamorous feminine fashion. May the Glamour go on…and on…and on… (Until it hits the Ready to Wear (RTW) market-where we can actually afford these beautiful designs….) We’ll be waiting!.
