Timeless High Fashion Trends

The world of fashion changes every day and often it is necessary to get rid of the old to make room for the new. Many influential factors influence changes in trends and its a rare instance, especially in high fashion, when a trend can and does last forever. Timeless trends that will always be relevant in high fashion are equivalent to term diamonds in the rough.

 

True red comes in many not so trendy forms, but it will be a staple in high end fashion until the end of time. Why red? Its the Marilyn Monroe of colors and considered a power color with a strong sexual influence for passion. Lets look at the facts: its the color of fire, the common rose, hearts, passion, love as well as embodying many more other symbolic meanings. In China, it symbolizes beauty and celebration and it is the color brides most commonly wear on their wedding day. Did I mention that its one of the top colors chosen by men? Its true Venus will always be rising in the high fashion world.

 

While on the subject of power, lets add the well tailored pant suit. There are uncountable variations by numerous high fashion designers but there is one perfect fit for every woman. A good tailor is needed but not necessarily required. Women are powerful and a high end pant suit can be worn for almost any occasion with the right decorated accessories to accent. Try utilizing this trend if there is a powerful message that needs to be conveyed.

 

A staple piece of jewelry in high end fashion is the right hoop earrings. This accessory will never go out of style. Whether you like silver, gold, big or small, find the perfect pair that fits you. Getting a few variations is a must. Jackie O, god rest her stylish soul, received millions of dollars in diamonds and jewels from prestigious places and people, but her favorite were a pair of petite double hooped dangle earrings that she got for less than $100 and wore most of the time. She was photographed wearing them on numerous occasions. Its simply impossible to settle for just any hoop earring and there are many styles to choose from so its important to take precious time to find the perfect pair. When you do, youll be soul mates. As for me, Im going to be buried in mine.

 

The Clutch Purse is the queen bee of handbags. Which is very suitable considering the style was introduced to high society fashion during the Victorian Era. The fashion world had decided that the clutch was no longer in style and it diminished for decades until WWII. This was due to the shortages in materials and rationing. Since the clutch required fewer materials, it re-emerged in the fashion world. Theyre dainty and they add a feminine touch to any style for any occasion.

Thomas Burberry was the founder and creator of the first trench coat. They were designed specifically for the British Army and when the soldiers came home, they continued to wear them on the streets making them the pillar of street fashion for men. Epaulets and other accents were added and the trench coat was reborn and continued to transform for both genders. Today, almost every high end fashion designer makes a variation. This piece may be the most timeless style for both men and women today.

 

New ideas and new trends in fashion are an exciting expectation to look forward to. Its possible that innovative ideas can transform ones world, for the good or the bad. Since the past is all we know, that is all we can reference. But there is one thing for sure and its these high fashion trends will be around forever, unless we become machines and robots. It could happen but it sure does give a whole new meaning to the word attachment.

Bustiers – For Brides and For Every Woman

For the bride-to-be, a bridal bustier is a must-have. You want to feel like the most beautiful woman on earth when you walk down the aisle. A bridal bustier helps by making sure you look amazing in your wedding dress. They slim, flatten, and hoist, all while looking smooth and seamless under your gown.

 

Heres how the bridal bustier works. Bustiers start at the bosom and go down to the hips. Theyre like corsets in that they feature boning that helps keep everything in place, so to speak.

 

Bridal bustiers are created to be invisible. Often, they are totally seamless and feature hidden underwire, a low-cut back, and straps that can be removed. Not surprisingly, the vast majority of bridal bustiers are white.

 

Bustiers, corsets, and basques are actually three different pieces of lingerie. If you hear the term bustier corset, it usually refers to a bustier thats made to firmly cinch and hold. The bustier corset is something women turn to when an ensemble calls for a near-perfect figure. You probably wouldnt want to wear one every day, but theyre ideal for occasions when you want to be an absolute knock-out. A bustier corset can instantly trim 3 or 4 pounds off your figure and make you appear curvy yet toned.

Almost all bustiers come with removal straps. The strapless bustier has a couple of different uses. Theyre ideal for wearing under a strapless gown and tube tops. In fact, they are also great for a top or dress with thin spaghetti straps. A strapless bustier provides all the support you need, but with no unsightly appearances from your bra straps.

 

A strapless bustier can also be a fashion statement. Increasingly, women are wearing strapless bustiers as tops. They are sexy and sassy for a night on the town. Paired with a blazer they can even be toned down enough for less wild occasions.

 

Lots of sexy costumes feature bustiers. Using a bustier in the costumes design can make even Little Red Riding Hood a red hot temptress. A witch costume complete with a bustier says no warts here, only delightfully devilish spells. Here are just a few of the sexy costumes that typically include bustiers:

 

  • Devil
  • Pirate
  • Fairy
  • Bar maid
  • Princess
  • Santas little helper

 

Of course, as you already know, bustiers make for sizzling sexy lingerie. No piece of sexy lingerie is truly sexy unless it makes you feel fabulous. And fabulous you will feel with the womanly, hourglass shape that an exotic bustier will give you.

 

When meant to serve as sexy lingerie, bustiers come in less functional varieties. That is, the vertical seams and lacing are meant to be visually appealing and not to constrict. You get the best of both worlds: an exotic bustier thats seductive yet fairly comfortable to wear.

 

Sexy, lacey bras and panties are great, but can become common-place. An exotic bustier makes you look and feel like a take charge kind of gal. Really wow that special someone with a piece of lingerie they never expected. Even the shyest of women will feel like a total goddess in an exotic bustier.

Fashion, Gender and Social Identity

Garment and fashion is the subject of intense sociological, historical, anthropological and semiotic analysis in contemporary social theory. The phenomenon of fashion, the impact of which is recognized by the famous cliché : “You are what you wear”, offers a dense, rich set of costume options and reveals multiple and unexpected ways through which fashion is part of the concrete, tangible, profound, complicated and symbolic process of forming of the modern and postmodern Self, identity, body and social relations.

 

The development of gender identity is a social construct with garment and fashion being two factors of this configuration. Even fashion should be considered as part of the social processes of discrimination, namely the reproduction of hierarchy’s position and prestige in a deeply unequal society.

 

The aim of this study is to detect different types of human ideas about the evolution of gender through clothing and fashion, what is “feminine” and “male” appearance in the evaluation of various dress styles.

 

The research part of this paper includes the results of a Qualitative social research. The theoretical framework of feminist theory and the process of informal and conversational interview are chose in order to release the interviewees.

Is the Fashion Industry Environment Friendly

It is necessary for designers and fashion product manufacturers to indulge in eco friendly and sustainable fashion for the betterment of humanity. From the looks of it, the global fashion industry has not been able to serve Nature equally well!

Manufacturers are only concerned with the raw material. They hardly take note of the exploitation imposed on animals in order to obtain the raw material. Designers make use of these exotic skins without bothering to find out whether the supplier used ethical measures to obtain them. How much of sincere effort has been made in order to promote the use of recycled fashion products? In fact, not even sufficient awareness has been created by manufacturers and designers towards their use.Many manufacturers claim that they make and supply organic products. But not all are genuine.Surveys reveal that only 2.5 percent of the total cultivated land in the world is consumed by cotton, but it consumes 16 percent of the total insecticides used.

Each and every community celebrate their wedding in their own style and for all these occasion one thing which matters most is the Look.

 

Say for example, how it would be if Rafal Nadal took the center court in a blue jeans and tee-shirt to play the final of Australian Open. How would it be if Manmohon Singh takes his office in his most comfortable sleeping suit? Many a time we forget but the truth is look matters a lot. Every one of us is dressed for the occasion at times consciously and at times not so consciously and sometime we are forced to. But at the end of the day it matters a lot what we actually wears.

 

A costume gives an in-depth view of certain culture, a period, a society; it also goes far beyond fashion and this is exactly the main reason why dress plays an important role in an occasion. And when we are taking about occasion wedding is perhaps the most important occasion in everybodys life. So it needless to say that dress plays an important role in wedding.

 

The Bengali community celebrates their wedding with full enthusiasm like every other festival; the rituals of the wedding are very simple and traditional. A Bengali bride represents the true femininity and beauty. The wedding attire of a Bengali bride is very attractive and looks spectacular in its traditional wedding trousseau. A Bengali marriage is not just an exhibition of richness and grandeur it equips much more to the tradition. A bride make-up and jewelry and costume are actually the reflection of the bride herself and her family.

 

The hair of the bride is usually tied with bun and covered with a veil. The mukut (crown) is placed on her head and is pinned to the veil. The bride must sit with the gaach kouto and kajal lata for the wedding ceremonies. And not to forget the most synonymous of the Bengali wedding the red benarasi sari and with this she not only looks spectacular in the traditional Bengali attire but also she represent himself as the symbol of goodness and strength.

Grooms attire is no less than a bride. The bridegroom in a Bengali community wears a silk dhoti and kurta. The groom drapes a silk cloth around his body known as jor, while performing the marriage rituals. The end of this cloth is tied to the anchal of the brides sari during the marriage ceremony.

 

And last but not the least, the traditional paper hat topor that grooms wears during the ceremony is also a year long tradition which Bengali people followed throughout these years. This symbolism has been used in much Bengali film starting from Satyajit Rays Apur Sansar to Riturporno Gosh, Noakadubi Bengali marriage has been come as a metaphor to the society. The traditional Bengali marriage is considered as an extension to Bengali culture and society, the history as a whole and bridal costume often becomes a mirror of the society. Bengali bride also wears a tika on her head as it is treated as Goddess Lakshmi. The Hands and feet of the bride are adorned with red liquid known as alta, which is sign of prosperity and also defines the marital status of a woman. When it comes to jewelry, a Bengali community can easily give run over all other communities for their money.

 

A Bengali bride is adorned with different kinds of jewelries, like, kaanpasha (hand-crafted delicate gold ornament that adorns the entire ear), Hathphool (an ornament comprising of five rings interconnected by thin golden chains), Nath (the large gold loop nose ring connected by a slender gold chain to the Kaan), Chik (gold choker studded with diamonds or other jewels worn around the neck), Panchnari (A necklace with five or punch layers of precious stone), Sapta Lahari (similar to Panch but has seven layers instead) and Hansuli (another traditional necklace of Bengal).

 

But the most interesting thing is the gradual mix of contemporary styles that has come into the costumes of a traditional Bengali wedding. Now a days the modern Bengali bride often shift from Benarshi to some other sari with the changing times well known designer have come up with many experiments with bridal costumes and jewelries.

 

Now a days with the changing scenario it is also important to mix past with the present but to keep hold the age long tradition is another important aspect of this beautiful Bengali culture. The traditional Bengali wedding is a marriage of period of epochs where yesterday marks the aurora of tomorrow.

How to Fashionably Dress for Your Cruise

The beach apparel industry has exploded with growth in recent years with growing demands for a variety of beach dresses, beach clothes, beach accessories and cruise wear. The fashion and style of beachwear has become trendier and more flattering than ever, increasing the demand for variety and budget-friendly beach clothing. In addition to this trend, hundreds of people are opting out of luxurious island-stay vacation trends and are instead choosing exciting, and cheaper, all-inclusive cruises. This has set a movement in motion for fashionable cruise wear clothing to be available for summer, spring, winter, and fall occasions.

 

Cruise lines are famous for taking the effort out of your life, meaning your biggest concerns are figuring out what choice of food you’d like to eat, and where you’d like to lay in the sun. Cruise wear has become extremely important lately because it’s one of these few things people do have to worry about. It has expanded to be able to cater to people of various styles, ages, sizes, sex, and seasons. Comfort has become one of the main factors influencing the design of cruise clothing because of the adventures that people encounter once they come to port. Slim fitting bermudas, an earth tone tunic, and gladiator-type sandals that will secure your footing no matter where you’re stepping, are great options for adventurous cruise gear. If you’re a couple reminiscing or celebrating then a crisscrossing beach dress, geometric tops, a floor-length dark hue dress, or a sexy silhouetted pareo should be a part of your cruise wear choice. No matter the adventure, relaxation, or affair, cruise wear should be lightweight, easy to wash and care for, and versatile enough to pair with various outfits.

Don’t forget, one of the most important parts about any fashionable outfit is the accessories that you choose to go with it. Cruises allow for a lot of play in the area of accessories, with the freedom to pair bracelets, earrings, necklaces, small belts, bags, sandals and scarf’s with every outfit. Where else do you have the opportunity to match some of your quirkiest and playful accessories then on a cruise? If going somewhere warm, tropical accents with shells and bold colors like turquoise or lavender are always a hit. If headed up north, or very down south, bundle up with deep colored scarves in amber, forest green, or chocolate brown. Fall cruise wear is all about relaxation and reflecting the earthy tones around you in your outfit. With all the talk of fashion, don’t forget your cruise and beach necessities as well such as chairs, swim gear like snorkel and fins, umbrellas, mats, beach towels, and healthy sun care like Australian Gold sunscreen. Enjoy the fact that you’re on a cruise, and experiment and have fun with type of cruise wear you plan to bring.

What Is Fashion Trend Really About?

Your closet can give the answer. If you don’t want to look at it, well.well. this resembles that you are matching your steps with the latest fashion trends. What it’s relation to fashion? People stick rigidly to the rules – okay, maybe not ‘YOU’. You may be one of those who walk their own way and dress as they like. When it comes to the fashion industry, it’s a continuously changing world.

Even though some trends are considered as ludicrous and outdated, many other comebacks with innovative ideas.
Pace and Re-emergence of Latest Fashion Trends
Now its new millennium, but most of fashion things like the pegged pant legs, jelly bracelets, and finally the denim jeans, seem to be returning in trends again. It comes out that the latest fashion trends are simply have nothing new at all. Almost everything re-emerged in fashion trend. You can virtually find torn jeans in every clothing retail store.

The most famous fashion weeks are held at Fashion Mecca Paris, Milan, London and New York. Since the new millennium fashion weeks are held in different parts of the world to put the local fashion on the world map and making a packed fashion calendar throughout the year. A refreshing sense of national identity and pride has emerged from the achievements of fashion sector – something that was otherwise traditionally been restricted to feats of sporting prowess, adding that its benefits go well beyond the fashion world (Emling 2006).

Fashion weeks are held several months in advance giving chance to designers, media and buyers to preview the trend for the next season. Fashion weeks are bi-annual events; the fashion weeks conducted between January and March are called “fall fashion weeks” whereas the one conducted in September through November are called “Spring Fashion Weeks”. Some fashion weeks can be genre-specific, such as a Miami Fashion Week (Swimwear), Prêt-a-Porter (ready-to-wear) Fashion Week, Couture (one-of-a-kind designer original) Fashion Week, Palm Springs Fashion Week (Resort Collections) and Bridal Fashion Week.

Knowing where to find affordable fashion dolls will make a huge difference to your budget, especially if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on this fashion doll collecting hobby of yours. Most of us don’t. You don’t have to have all the fashion dolls in the market today – it’s not urgent! Although a point to note is that new fashion dolls are often grabbed up in minutes after they hit the stalls. Keep some spare money and budget the money you want to spend on fashion dolls every month – and don’t overspend. It’ll make you feel resentful and you’ll soon lose interest in fashion dolls.

It was in the early 80s when the first fashion store ‘Ravissant’ opened in Mumbai. At that time garments were retailed for a four-figure price tag. The ’80s was the era of self consciousness and American designers like Calvin Klein became popular. In India too, silhouettes became more masculine and the ‘salwar kameez’ was designed with shoulder pads.

With the evolution of designer stores in Mumbai, the elegant fashion design culture was a trend among Indians along with their heavy price tags. No doubt that a garment with a heavy price tag was at the bottom stage of fashion. But clients immediately transformed into the high fashion fold where they were convinced that that the word ‘elegant fashion design culture’ means, it had to have a higher price tag.

Basics of Pattern Making

The development of a garment comprises of different process. Fit is the most important factor leading to the final acceptance or rejection of a garment. Fit must be designed into the original pattern through subtleties in the pattern that provide fullness unobtrusively at appropriate locations to accommodate body bulges in a flattering manner (Hudson). Good customized fit is dependent on the pattern drafting incorporating various shapes and proportions of the individual customer. With the onset of the Industrial Revolution, standardized patterns were essential to the success of ready-to-wear clothing.

 

Pattern making is an art. It is the art of manipulating and shaping a flat piece of fabric to conform to one or more curves of the human figure . Pattern making is a bridge function between design and production. A sketch can be turned into a garment via a pattern which interprets the design in the form of the garment components (Cooklin).

 

A pattern is flat while the body is not. The body has height, width and depth. With in this roughly cylindrical framework there are a series of secondary curves and bulges, which are of concern to the pattern maker. Darts are the basis of all pattern making. They convert the flat piece of cloth into a three dimensional form, which fits the bulges of the body.

 

A patternmaker typically makes a pattern from a flat sketch with measurements or a two dimensional fashion illustration. The basic pattern is the very foundation upon which pattern making, fit and design are based. The basic pattern is the starting point for flat pattern designing. It is a simple pattern that fits the body with just enough ease for movement and comfort (Shoben and Ward).

 

Methods of Pattern Making

 

Pattern making involves three methods-

  • Drafting
  • Draping
  • Flat paper patternmaking

 

Drafting: It involves measurements derived from sizing systems or accurate measurements taken on a person, dress or body form. Measurements for chest, waist, hip and so on, and ease allowances are marked on paper and construction lines are drawn to complete the pattern. Drafting is used to create basic, foundation or design patterns.

 

Draping: It involves the draping of a two dimensional piece of fabric around a form, conforming to its shape, creating a three-dimensional fabric pattern. This muslin is transferred to paper to be used as a final pattern (Armstrong). Ease allowances for movement are added to make the garment comfortable to wear. Advantage of draping is that the designer can see the overall design effect of the finished garment on the body form before the garment piece is cut and sewn. However, it is more expensive and time consuming than flat pattern making.

 

Flat Pattern Making: It involves the development of a fitted basic pattern with comfort ease to fit a person or body form. A sloper is the starting point for flat pattern designing. It is a simple pattern that fits the body with just enough ease for movement and comfort (Shoben and Ward). Five basic pattern pieces are used for womens clothing. They include a snug-fitting bodice front and bodice back with darts and a basic neckline, a sleeve and a fitted skirt front and back with darts. However, as fashion changes frequently womens styles fluctuate frequently. These basic slopers are then manipulated to create fashions.

A basic sloper has no seam allowances, which facilitates its manipulations to various styles. It has no design interest, only construction lines are marked on it. It is necessary that the basic structure of a sloper should be such that adjustments can be introduced easily. For a good pattern making, accurate measurements are of utmost importance.

 

The flat patternmaking method is widely used in the ready-to-wear market because it is fast and accurate (Aldrich).

 

Pattern making in todays world

 

Pattern making today has become an easy job with the use of the computers. Now-a-days different softwares are available in the market to meet the needs of the manufacturers. The different softwares used are Gerber, Lectra, Tukatech , OptiTex etc. These softwares has made the job of the Pattern master easier. They have made the process of pattern making more economical and less time consuming.

 

Pattern-making softwares enables you to input your measurements and draft out a pattern. These softwares draft patterns to fit your measurements specifically, eliminating much fitting trial and error in the sewing room.

 

A pattern can be made from a 3D form in just a few steps by using these softwares. An individual’s measurements are collected from 3D body scanner. The measurements are used to create a virtual 3D model of the individual’s body. The 3D to 2D software allows the user to define a garment surface in relation to the 3D body model. Once the garment surface is defined, the application automatically unwraps and outputs a 2D flat pattern in .dxf format.

The Emulation of Indian Fashion and the West

With the expansion of western colonialism and development of foreign trades, Indian fashion has been continually improving to perfection. However, the forte of Indian fashion industry lies in its free-wheeling nature that incorporates anything exotic into integral Indian so much that it is not that easy to sport its origin. Nowadays, the Indian fashion industry is accelerated by mainly two aspects including customer choices and globalization of Indian economy.

There are many reasons accounting western impact on the Indian apparel and costume industry. As a melting pot of multi ethnic groups, the open-minded culture coupled with cultural diversities of India embrace the whole world in tolerance posture. Each group has its own prominent style and type of dresses and costumes. Indian Fashion designers are known to interweave these diverse fashions and lend an amazing Indian touch to them.

 

In recent years, the awards of Indian beauty pageants on international platforms have been doing the nation proud. Their natural style of dressing has deeply affected the ladies fashion apparel industry in India. The dresses donned by these participants are a blend of Indian and western wear. Commoners openly ape their role models and this eventually becomes the latest fad in the general fashion wear industry in India.
Apart from the two aspects as mentioned above, Indian movies are also big influencing factor to leave a never vanishing impact on the minds of the Indians. As a matter of fact, it affects daily lives. People blindly emulate what their role models are wearing. And with movies following the western patterns of dressing it is natural for the ordinary folks to imitate them lock, barrel and stock.

 

The extensive scale of globalization and liberalization also pose great impact on the Indian fashion industry. Indian imports from the west have also made it easier for Indians to keep a track on the latest fashion clothes and accessories ruling the Western men and women’s wear market. Apparently, Indian fashion industry is also appealing to western buyers. Needless to say, the fashion fraternity in India have willingly adopted western designs keeping in mind both the Indian and western sensibilities.

 

In addition, the Indian denizens embrace western fashion industry to such an extent that they like to adapt the social and cultural changes and western lifestyles as well.
