Mermaid gowns, structural silhouettes and intricate placement of embellishments were incorporated in the night’s main key looks.

The Descendants (with five nominations) won for best motion picture drama and the film’s George Clooney for best acting, while Octavia Spencer brought in The Help’s only win (it also had five nominations) with best supporting actress in a motion picture.

From full length gowns to your more casual daywear Jason Wu has applied versatility for his Pre-Fall 2012 runway collection and I love it! Wu has incorporated your richest of hues with a consistency of clean lines and your finest silk & chiffon. Clean craftsmanship plays a major part in the application of Wu’s collection. Color, fabric and materials used connects all pieces magically!’

This collection is bold, sexy and intricate. Pure Opulence. With the newness that Jason Wu offers with this collection builds a platform of timeless designs that I’ve never seen before. Every piece is different and innovative. Wu has made fashion strong and unexpected for his Pre-Fall 2012 runway collection. The tone of every garment is speaks high-aesthetic volumes!! The choice of colors, the elegant silhouettes and ultra-chic detailed designs all combined delivers an incredible execution.

A great association. A representation of what every collection should include. As simple as each piece looks—the deliverance is still yet powerful. Jason Wu definitely has me mesmerized with this collection. From the cuts to the color choice has all allowed this collection to be exceptional. Every piece will remain valid for years to come at any event!! I’m inspired.

Singer Joe Jonas attended the Calvin Klein Collection Men’s Fall/Winter 2012 Fashion Show in Italy for Milan Fashion Week.

Milan Fashion Week Recap

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Milan Fashion Week Recap

Gucci’s handsome collection that channeled poets, painters and heroes on horseback. Creative director Frida Giannini said that while her mind was on the 19th century, she was careful to mix the flower prints, velvets, jacquards, and tapestrylike weaves in a contemporary way.  I love the grunge preppy look.  Gucci accessories is always my favorite.

Burberry keeps us at surprise, the  natty patterns, tailored suits with the cropped coats with blazers coming out.The creative officer Christopher Bailey said he wanted to marry British city and country dressing for a “polite and charming” collection that felt traditional, but also approachable and familiar and how his inspiration came about with this collection . Chunky sweaters always is a plus when layering. The prints on the bottom of trench jacket is genius.

Prada always gives us a new trend that changes the menswear world . The designer described the collection as a riff on powerful men, and how fashion can telegraph authority, might or supremacy. “Clothing is also a tool of power and a way to express male vanity,” she said. Prada set a military tone for Fall/Winter which is a great idea. Sunny colors and cheerful prints is always a great idea for the Fall!

Missoni prints always takes the cake. The went for a mod look this collection, knitted wool coats, soft tweed pants and cardigan jackets in an earthy color palette for the season. When mixing patterns this would be a great collection to pull clothing from.

 

 

Model Watch Jasmine Tookes

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Model Watch Jasmine Tookes

A California native discovered in a shopping mall, destined for nothing less than greatness—allow me to present, Jasmine Tookes. She has arrived! This young model is making a lot of noise! You can find this model in both commercial and print work—serving the photographers with much poise. Barely reaching the age 20, Jasmine has been seen in Balmain, Calvin Klein, Missoni, Prada, Vera Wang and Jason Wu printed and runway collections to name drop a few. She is truly a model on a mission! With more than a love for being in front of the lens—she also has a a love for being behind the lens. Aspiring photographer? Maybe, we’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store!!

Exotic Hand Skin Bags

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Exotic Hand Skin Bags


An array of exotic skins are now gracing runways all over. Colorful python and lizard handbags have been featured in collections adding unique and luxurious set-offs tocomplete a look to heighten textural influence. Accessories houses such as Sang A Im-Propp to Roberto Cavalli are experimenting with the intricate textile adding a new aesthetic to pop and add textural modifications. A little techie? The result will deliver a more polished and glazed look that’s neither shiny or matte, but will embraced by skin lovers worldwide! Sang A Im-Propp uses a metallic layer that that gives her bags a moisturized illuminated finish with a wax-like texture. Roberto Cavalli also adds a textural layer to his python in the form of an aniline dye, which is polished and then bleached with an embedded fluorescent finish. I’m a true believer that exotic skins will be the hype in the accessories sector for seasons to come in the 2012. Below are a few of my favorite pieces from Sang A Im-Propp & Roberto Cavalli an a few other accessories’ designers apart of the skin hype.
