Le Coiffure Yacht Fashion & Dinner Event – Boss Lady Wendy Isaac DELIVERS

File_000(1)

Rain, sleet, hail or storm, a FASHION SHOW must go ON…. And go on it did as Boss Lady Wendy Isaac produced the Le Coiffure Yacht Fashion Event.

Even the threat of RAIN and HIGH WINDS could not keep the REAL Fashionistas from attending this All White Event.

When I arrived the house was in full swing, the models were getting made up, the VIP/Press/Media were ready and Boss Lady Wendy Isaac had everything under control.  Then up rolled the food trucks lead by Henry Marshman… (I did not know the man could cook like this)…. everyone was happy to see him.  As we wait for the Yacht to arrive, we network, Press/Media/Supermodels on hand were Joe Clarke and Anthony Pierre of RunwayNews.com, Editor-in-Chief Lloyd Crawford of i-Fashion Magazine, Sofia Davis, Editor-in-Chief of Fashion Avenue News, Model World Magazine and The FAN Daily Fashion Blog (www.btetv.wordpress.com), JD Murphy Editor-in-Chief of RARE Magazine, Ese, Editor-in-Chief of Enspire Magazine, Photographer Paul Walker, SuperModel Avadora, Brand Ambassador of the Avadora the Perfume, Carly – Creative MUA, Photographer Brother Michael Williams, Lady Andrene Red Carpet Host, Kelly Phoenix (follow the Phoenix), designer Peter of Yamon Wear, Supermodel Gio, and many others.

Once on board, Boss Lady Wendy wasted no time in getting everything in place, what a beautiful setting.  10mins to ShowTime…

What a show, the models Slayed & Sashayed on the runway, giving you entertainment as well as respect for the designers garment, they sold the clothes.  The accessories were to DIE FOR, (where is the lady with the jewelry, will someone please give her my number or email).  She had COUTURE, STATEMENT jewels that gave every garment an extra touch.

One of the things I like about the event , they had models of all sizes, heights and weights.  You could see yourself on the Runway.  The other excellent part is, IT STARTED ON TIME….(everyone knows I have a pet peeve about starting on time)… Boss Lady Wendy did not disappoint.

The designers were WONDERFUL, showing figure flattering creative designs with elegant lines and graceful silhouettes.  (more details on designers will be coming shortly.).  The show also featured a treat for the ladies, men in swimwear.  What a nice addition to the show.

Boss Lady Wendy, gave gift bags to all the Press/Media/Designers, there was something for everyone, no one even noticed the rain.  (what rain – LOL)

WENDY ISSAC EVENT

When it comes to Fashion, the show must go on and Boss Lady, Wendy Isaac delivered.

Boss Lady, keep up the good work.

Note: Thank you to all the Media/Press/Sponsors/MUA/Hairstylists/Accessory Designers/Fashion Designers/Models. A more detailed review coming soon.

MAISON MARGIELA – MEN DARLING…

fswpa77.08fr

In a postmodern world, masculine fragility need not hide behind closed doors.

The Maison Margiela questions the tropes that define the role of man in today’s society – his uniform, his armour, and the tactile underpinnings of his sartorial wardrobe. When all expectations fall away, what melancholic remnants remain in his age of post-emotional experience?

fswpa77.06fr

Answers abound in the salvaged effects of past lives, when archetypes were once vested with authenticity. Gradations of the two-piece suit reflect process and power, as the proud craft of full-canvas tailoring is rendered decorative by exposed basting stitches (like spontaneous embroidery). Coat shoulders are rounded and soft, trousers fall to a loose cuff, and shirtsleeves flutter in silk poplin. Domestic foulard prints like curtains or tablecloths are illustrated with pastoral scenes and heraldic insignias, re-assembled as new shirting hybrids snapped together with salt-shrunk jersey or chambray cotton. Sepia-toned tweeds and Prince of Wales checks mingle with technical shell tanks and purist knit swimsuits that evoke a lost athletic elegance. Square-toed loafers fold down at the heel, and lace-up boots become a trompe l’oeil sandal.

Produced from found garments of varying sources and periods, ‘Replica’ styles are signified by an external white label, whilst a selection of seven ‘Re-edition’ garments return to the Spring Summer 2017 collection from within the Maison’s archives – designed between 1999-2005.

The rain falls down on last year’s man, an hour has gone by and he has not moved his hand.

Best Smeller for Fall and Winter

cbn01.01com-natalie-wood-fragrance-highres

With the end of the summer around the corner, winterly sweetness approaches: When it’s getting colder outside, we start longing for warm, aromatic and heavy fragrances. With shorter days and lower temperatures, chypre scents, oriental and gourmand aromas are coming, too. we present the fragrances that will sugarcoat the coziest time of the year even more!

Four seasons and its fragrances

Fall marks the transition between summer and winter. In order to have the proper scent ready for this season that will make our individual personalities stand out in any wind and weather, many perfume lovers have started collecting their very own “seasonal scent storage”. Aquatically fresh as well as sweet and fruity summer fragrances are now to be toss in storage in a cool and dry place for a winter slumber. Different fragrance compositions with a more weighty quality are now on spot: earthy, woody, soft, balsamic, warm and sensual scents; attributes that fit especially well to fall and winter. The new every day companions predominantly contain warm accords such as vanilla and musk.

Fall Scents

Anything goes this fall: a great number of aroma combinations are possible during this season. Women now prefer the warmth, whereas men rather go for woody and spicy fragrances. Many people also like to wear chypre scents besides oriental and spicy compositions: this is a perfume category that consists of a lemon-heavy top note such as bergamot or orange, a flowery heart of rose or jasmine oil and a warm, woody and mossy base note of oak moss and musk. With its earthy heavy, moldy sweet, very exotic scent, Patchouli is another important ingredient of oriental fragrances. In addition, the outlandish heavy, smoky scent of vetiver is very intense and long-lasting that hence fits perfectly to fall season.

clmu001.02com-mugler-les-exceptions-fragrance-collection-highres

Sandelholz, as one of the oldest perfume ingredients, has a warm, soft, woody balsamic and sweet smell that steadily stays on the skin for quite a long time. It belongs to the precious, more expensive perfumery raw materials and is responsible for the fragrance’s classic woody note.

The all-time classic vanilla is the world’s best known aroma of mother nature. Its scent is very intense and yet, sweet and gives deepness and a long-lasting presence to perfumes.
