Tuesday Trends @ 2 O'clock

What a season! The busiest week in Philly for me is always Philly Fashion Week. There is so much to see, people to connect with and so much art to witness. Here is a little of the progression of Philly Fashion Week as it stands today. I still remember attending the first model castings on Broad Street for what would be this exact event many years later. I didn’t make the part but a true lesson was learned. We are all apart of bringing this industry together in its own unique way. This week is where hopeful designers are given the opportunity to show some of their long awaited designs and have a step in the door, be one step closer to their dreams. Philly Fashion week has two seasons, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. This year, some of the lucky designers that were able to showcase their designs include Prajje Oscar, Unsatisfied Fashion House, Freemen By Mickey and JD Collection. Through the designs shown in their shows, the audience was able to get an insight of what and who inspires them. A prime example would be the JD Collection, who clearly gave a futuristic vibe off with some off his Balmain inspired outfits. The Unsatisfied Fashion House line was inspired by some of today’s teen trends, rebel-like clothing with a hint of posh, a trend that I am sure we will see around not only this Summer but in the fall as well.

CHRISTIAN DIOR

2019

I was graced with the opportunity to write a press release of this exhibit. The dresses represent timeless creations that Christian Dior has created throughout his lifetime. His signature frills and patterns bring out the feminine side of a woman, aspects that remind me of the dresses I used to wear when I was much younger, running carefree in the summer breezy nights. The silhouettes of the dresses were very 50’s and 60’s inspired, a time when cinched waists and showing skin was in, a big fashion risk and statement made by women. What I love about these designs is that it flatters the feminine body, accentuating the natural curves that our body has all while embracing our figures. I feel like nowadays anyone can rock these styles, despite what the fashion society stereotype had in mind. The pop of colour presented in some of the pieces showed that Monsieur Dior was no stranger to adding a surprise element to his creations. These designs are classics and staples that shall be seen in stick with future red carpets to come.

Brake Spring

Is it really Spring once again? There are only so many seasons I approve of when it comes to attire and Spring is my favorite time to revive my expression of art. Especially through my clothing. It was never something I paid much attention to because ultimately I dressed to follow my mood of the day. The change of seasons became a concept I paid closer attention to as an adult when watching the news began to play a part in my morning routine. Obviously the weather distinguishes how short a skirt can be or how heavy the layers should be. This woman’s face captured my soul at the fashion show held at Century 21 in the city. The show was for local design students that were paving the way and of course I had to make my way into the press pit and elbow the dudes until I got the best shot.
