Fashion Designer: Bianca Popp Fall/Winter 2015 – “Temple Invisible” Collection.

bianca popp aw 2015 look 11.2

The fashion signature of Bianca Popp is formed in theatrical influences and background that highly relates to her career in a theatrical costumography. As the Marangoni Master graduate from Istituto Marangoni Milan she started her own label in 2009. The designer’s passion for costumes pushed her for searching new perspective of style based on complex human behaviour and interactions while staying original and individual according to veracity of oneself. The eponymous label is focused on the adaptation of multiplicity of movement and self-esteem.

The collection for Fall/Winter 2015 season is a structured line that consists of 35 silhouettes that are deisgned in a geometrical twist. The vibe of the collection is kept in ultimate femininity emphasized with the signature knot. The palette of colors is defined by the black base along with the sombre colors consisting of grey, marsala, dark blue and white.

The designer wanted to express the strength and functionality as the main factor of the line with the selected presentation of fabrics such as neoprene, wool, cashmere, jersey tricot and synthetic leather. Playing on the balance of vigor and vulnerability, Bianca Popp craves to depict the group of independent modern women. The garment is pictured as the armor spirit fabric for protection purposes such as inconvenient weather conditions as well as the indication of the poised elegance of female body.

Fashion Video: MICHELE MIGLIONICO SUPPORTS THE CANDIDACY OF MATERA AS EUROPEAN CAPITAL OF CULTURE IN 2019

Foto abiti Michele Miglionico.6

Natural and artistic beauties in Matera and Basilicata inspire fashion designer  Michele Miglionico to support with his Haute Couture clothes the Candidacy of Matera as European Capital of Culture 2019.

Basilicata (Italy) born designer  Michele Miglionico while attending the event Fashion Award Città dei Sassi 2014,  that took place in the wonderful Piazza San Francesco d’Assisi in Matera (Italy), supported “Matera European Candidate as Capital of Culture 2019” showing three outfits inspired by three of the Madonnas venerated in his region:  Black Madonna of Viggiano, Madonna of Bruna and Madonna of Carmine.

The Orchestra Amitiés made of fourty-three musicians and directed by Matera born  Grazia Giusto performed a new song arranged by the composer and director of the orchestra Luigi Lombardi d’Aquino to highlight the lyricism and the drama of the performance.

 Michele Miglionico imagined, in a blaze of organzas rounded by valencienne laces,  crochets covered by tulle point d’esprit, brocades and taffettas in silk, his woman-madonna hanging on the balance between sacred and profane but always romantic and sensual.

Those three outfits are made with the designer’s favourite couture colours: white black and scarlet red.

During the performance the couturier remembered the movie “Il Vangelo secondo Matteo” ( the Gospel according to St.Matthew) of director Piero Paolo Pasolini, as the very first movie with Christian subject shot in the City of the Sassi fifty years ago and just now restored showing some of the images from the film.

The models’ look has been completed with the sculptured jewels from Monies collection, by the hair stylist Paola Cancelliere  and her Staff –Wella Official Partner of  Fashion Award Città dei Sassi –  and by make up artist  Pablo Gil Cagnè and his Staff.

 An innovative and original view of Matera that with the language of Italian Haute Couture is ready to present new suggestions and emotions.

Fashion Focus: Mohawk hairstyles in Fashion Photography.

The Vogue Netherlands May 2012 Photoshoot Stars a Savage Rianne ten Haken_1

Mohawk hairstyle that considered to be a warrior significance in Native American tradition is clearly visible in Fashion industry nowadays. The savage appearance of the Mohican hairdo is clashed with the sophisticated gowns, mixed with the neo-punk attitude and merged with the sporty classic. Presented in numerous openings from the colorful selection with the rainbow like effects, accentuated with feathers, braided like in the rustic fairy-tale, Mohican just proves that cannot be reserved to the 80’s punk subculture anymore.

Mohawk hairdo supposed to be a manifest signature for anarchy and opposition to consumptionism while with the progress of style became one of the trends that is frequently borrowed or even adopted in various versions on the catwalk, official and public events, photography and high street on every day basis.

Good or not, judge yourself . There is my favourite t-shirt from Panapoo “GPunk” that utterly covers the idea of punk attitude and style that I proudly wear on my daily basis.

132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE – Design of the Year 2012 Fashion Award

Mathematical precision of origami art with the fashion conscious wit were the most inspiring factors among others that enabled 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE to win an  “Oscar”  in the fashion category of Design of the Year 2012. The event was held on 23rd of April, 2012 in Design Museum in London.  With the high-grade fellows including Sara Burton from Alexander McQueen, Phebe Philo from Celine or young designer Mary Katrantzou, Issey Miyake conquered the hearts beating renowned wedding gown of the Duchess Kate along with the sensational exhibition “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” with his eco-friendly approach of fashion-forward concept merging traditional Japanese art and sartorial aesthetics at the high-fashion rate.

The awarded design of 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE was created by Issey Miyake and Reality Lab team – revolutionary collaboration aiming at innovative approach into the face of fashion with the core of experimental wearability. Following the dimensional inclinations of Issey Miyake‘s brand, the model is enhanced by the mathematical algorithms creating a great diversity of three-dimensional shapes. The groundbreaking idea transforms flat geometry pieces into the artful apparel. What is more, the 132 5. ISSEY MIYAKE line has a very strong base for environmental protection thanks to the use of extraordinary yet generally acknowledged material – recycled PET products. As a new challenge, the line will definitely stand for creative innovations with the motto of “Regeneration and Re-creation” and the infinite aspiration to design “clothes that bring joy and happiness to wearers” <source>.

As one of the admirers of Issey Miyake’s signature I would like to congratulate this well-deserved award :).

Fashion inspiration: Sea creatures in Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 2012

Remarkable collection of underwater thesis merged with the dignity of the ice queens was presented in a magnificent fashion translation stamped by Alexander  McQueen for Spring/Summer 2012 season. Sarah Burton, the creative mind of Alexander McQueen’s brand was highly inspired by the sea – one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring wonders of the nature. The cast of mythological sirens and glorious sea creatures followed the aquatic influence with the intricate, well-detailed masterpieces, complexity of forms and its multiple interpretations on fabrics. There was supremacy of lightweight materials like silk chiffon, organza and tulle giving the feeling of softness and finesse. The fabrics outlined the nature of the waterfalls, sea foams,oyster like designs, coral Raff forms implemented on the gowns  The palette of colors had very gentle and romantic feel with the scope for white, shell pink, silvery lilac and peach hues to gold opulence of matelassé Jacquard and strong coral-red. There was also a space for the signature of Gothic black in fetish transition of laser cut leather with lingerie detailing. Very interesting accent was presented through the lace headpieces. With the top-to-toe concept, the innovative treatment expressed the dramatic illusion of the sea.
The fashion show was the art presentation blurring the line between reality and theatrical performance depicting nymphs, ethereal beings and aquatic creatures.  Balancing among mathematical precision,couture artistry and costume design Sarah Burton managed to continue the legacy initiated by McQueen himself with the DNA of the house.
