After the last year release of a concise five-piece faux leather-made introductory range, the American reality television star Nicole Richie is back again with her full-fledged maiden ready-to-wear clothing collection under her celebrity-favorite accessory line House of Harlow 1960.

Replicating the laid-back Californian lifestyle, the 32-year-old designer infused elements of her signature uber-relaxed fashion sense into the casualwear line, exclusively available for sale on House of Harlow 1960’s website.

Based on a neutral colour palette, the girly collection features slouchy tank tops, peasant dresses, loose-fit blouses, cardigans, pullovers, cropped sweaters, roomy pants and camisoles.

An acclaimed fashion designer-cum-author, Nicole Richie had founded her jewellery line House of Harlow 1960, which is favoured by the likes of Vanessa Minillo, Madonna, Tina Farhat and Ashlee Simpson, in the year 2008.

Richie’s debut 5-piece collection, which was sold at the online boutique Shopbop, comprised of a delicate A-line skirt, moto jacket, stylish trousers and a pair of shorts with slant pockets.

Launched in 2000, Shopbop specializes in designer apparel and accessory collections for the contemporary chic urban women.


Fashion designers with strong Chinese roots have managed to grab the spotlight during the US First Lady Michelle Obama’s latest trip to China.

On her recent mainland tour, the better half of the current US president Barack Obama was seen in exquisite dresses created by not one but two extremely talented designers from the Chinese descent.

The sophisticated lady opted for a geometrical patterned black, tan and white leather and suede patchwork detailed woollen dress, selected from the California-born Chinese-American designer Derek Lam’s fall 2013 collection, for her meeting with China’s First Lady Peng Liyuan.

Later on her visit to a Beijing school, Mrs. Obama chose to sport a white button-down shirt and black pants combo paired with a matching vest, created by the Los Angeles based designer of Chinese origin Phillip Lim.

After donning two outfits from the Chinese designers, the First Lady once again surprised everyone with her final dress choice in red, a colour that stands for happiness and good fortune in China, for her meeting with President Xi Jinping. Designed by the Indian-born, American fashion designer Naeem Khan, the scarlet hued, three-quarter-sleeve lace dress featured floral patterns.


The just concluded ninth edition of annual Californian fashion revelry Fashion Week El Paseo once again mesmerised with its lines of cool breezy beachwear and other colourful trendy attires by a host of talented designers.

James Mullin, the 39-year-old designer behind the California-based fashion, retail, and production company JM Couture, sent more than 100 high-end ready-to-wear and haute-couture designs down the runway.

Adorned with hand beading and peek-a-boo details, the lace, chiffon and silk made ensembles included Roman style gowns, pencil skirts, casual denims and lightweight resortwear pieces.

Other than single designer presentations from the likes of Zang Toi and Mullin, the seven-day-long fashion, beauty and lifestyle extravaganza also showcased a spectacular catwalk space shared by the city’s 10 most popular retailers.

Showcasing spring 2014 trends, the retailers featured gorgeous little black dresses and sparkling beaded sheaths from names like Charmaine Menn, the designer and owner of Bohimi label.

In addition to the style studded catwalk presentations, the event also included one-day-only pop-up shops, set up by more than 15 designers and retailers from Los Angeles.

Local retailer Just Fabulous featured its resort-oriented tops, skirts, and shorts, while She She Clothing Boutique showcased frilly pink dresses for little girls and an edited collection of romantic-hippie dresses and tops for the grownups at the soiree, held in Palm Desert.

Mexico City is all geared up to host the autumn-winter (A/W) 2014 edition of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Mexico (MBFWMx), scheduled to be held at Campo Marte from April 1 to 4, 2014.

Featuring 22 showcases of A/W 2014 collections, the fifteenth edition of the MBFWMx would have 17 nationally renowned Mexican designers presenting their creations on the runway, as well as a special showcase from 3 designers from Colombia, Uruguay and Argentina.

The four-day fashion soiree would also feature presentations from a select group of emerging talents belonging to the Centro University of Mexico and Janette Klein University.

Several globally-renowned designers including Pink Magnolia, Macario Jiminez, Alexia Ulibarri, Jorge Duque, Julia and Renata, David Saloman and Malafacha would be presenting their creations during the show.

Beatrice Calles, director-general of MBFWMx, said in a statement that this year, with the support of ProMexico (Mexican agency for promotion of investment and trade), a group of important buyers from France interested in acquiring collections of Mexican designers would also be attending the show.

A Business and Knowledge forum would also be organized on the sidelines of the show during the third day, where buyers and designers would get an opportunity to exchange information, as well as form business contacts, she added.

The MBFWMx would also have a special space dedicated to the National Fashion Shop, within the precincts of the fashion week, where more than twenty Mexican designers would be exhibiting their collections to the public.
