My Thoughts on Spring 2010 Shows, Gucci

This is my last show thought, and it is for Gucci. This season Gucci went with a very modern look. The show started out with neutral colors, and interesting cut outs. Then, brown, black, and silver beads and white rope started weaving over the neutrals. Some leather, and intense belts worked their way in, adding a hard edge. Soon hints of bright orange appeared on beads, then in african inspired patterns, blue joined the orange, and eventually pink came.  Then, the neutrals regained power, but held on to the designs.

My Thoughts on Spring 2010 Shows Dolce & Gabbana

The Dolce & Gabbana show was a mix of modern, gothic, Japanese, and Victorian style, and strangely, it worked. Everything from lace to leather fit into the strange mix of a show that Dolce & Gabbana put out this season. Shining black suits, denim mini dresses, creamy, laced cocktail dresses, long sweaters, and flowing gowns seemed to float over the runway. The whole show was breathtaking, and almost, my favorite show ever, almost.

My Thoughts on Spring 2010 Shows, Burberry Prorsum

Burberry's show was absolutely stunning. Neutral colors, pastels, and metallics wrapped and tied into outfits that looked delicate, yet were so strong and powerful. The coats and outerwear were all different, but all amazing, some were ruffled, or wrapped, and others were straight, many were more classic, but a few were more modern and daring. Some of the dresses wrapped at the shoulders, then cascaded downward like a waterfall, others wrapped and draped down to the knees, and were held together by a belt. Then there were the outfits of ruffled shirts, draped skirts, folded shirts, and straight slacks. Some simple, and some complex, but all amazing, beautiful, and individual. Every coat pulled you deeper and deeper into the show, every dress soared higher and higher, and every new color gave the show another dimension.

My Thoughts on Spring 2010 Shows, Chanel

There are two many designers for me to cover all of the shows for soring 2010, so I am only doing some of my personal favorites. I start with Chanel. 
There was hay, grass, and trees coving the runway, creating a brown, and green background, that made the neutral colors of the outfits glow, and the rare bright colors pop off the runway. All the outfits looked very Old English, most were very innocent and light, with a slight hard edge, and some were more dramatic and hard, with a softer edge. Some blew you away, as if they were soaring over the runway. The whole show was stunningly beautiful, and amazing.

5 Steps to Make an Outfit

5 Steps to Make an Outfit

  1. Inspiration Piece (max. two inspirations)- This piece should be the theme, or focus of the outfit. Its should stand out when the outfit is finished. Ex: A black and white spotted dress.
  2. Following Piece - This piece should compliment the inspiration, but not distract from it. It especially important if the inspiration is really bright, or colorful, because the follower should tone the inspiration down. Ex: A black coat.
  3. Small Standout-This piece should bring out something in the inspiration. It needs to make a statement, but not distract from the inspiration too much. Ex: Black and white spotted earrings.
  4. Addition Pieces- These pieces are followers, they compliment, but do not distract. They must be small, and basic. Ex: Black boots, white purse.
  5. Final Touches- These pieces are followers, but can be large or small. They tie the outfit together. They are anything else needed with the outfit and they. Ex: White scarf (Note: You do not have to have final touches, if they are not needed.).
With these steps you can make an outfit, that is fit for anything!

Publications Say,

Publications (like newspapers, and magazines) say that Lady Gaga was the fashion icon in 2009. Who will be our icon this year? Normally people who are fashion icons are actors or musicians, they are famous. The thing is, that most famous people don't dress as amazingly as non-famous citizens. People like me, we shop at thrift stores, and wear things no one else would think to wear. We are the unknown fashion icons, the jelly inside the donut. We don't have our outfits put into the pages of US weekly, or People magazine, but if there were, Lady Gaga would have some though competition.

Happy New Year!

Have a Happy New Year!
It's 2010!
