RIHANNA "SETS IT OFF" AT BERGDORFS

It’s every designer’s dream to have their collection be carried at Bergdorf Goodman,” Rihanna proclaimed Tuesday afternoon at a frenzied personal appearance for the retail unveiling of her fall Fenty by Puma collection.

The Barbadian singer was joined by Bergdorf president Joshua Schulman and “homegirl Linda,” senior vice president, fashion office and store presentation Linda Fargo — as a contingent of Rihanna fans swarmed the retailer’s fifth floor, tunes blaring.

The majority of attendees appeared to be students from nearby fashion universities, including the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Parsons School of Design.

While scheduled for 3 p.m., the event didn’t start until nearly two hours past its call time — leaving some attendees with a dilemma.

Ariana, a 20-year-old student at FIT, said she was “debating if I should skip class, I have merchandising math at 5:10.” Spotted an hour later, it appeared that she had.

“I want to get the creepers,” Ariana said of her intentions for staying — noting that the continuously sold-out style is a must-have item amongst the FIT student body. “Before this, no one was buying Puma. [Rihanna] managed to make it big again,” she added.

Aasha, a 19-year-old New School student and intern for Alastair McKimm — who styled the fall Fenty for Puma campaign, already has a pair of creepers. She was in the room to nab one of the collection’s fur hoodies. “I like the collection — it is a mix of edgy and girliness at the same time.”

Whitney Lam, founder of the women’s lifestyle blog Nitrolicious, summed up Fenty’s popularity: “Anything Rihanna touches becomes popular. There is not really women’s streetwear like this produced with a big brand.”

Within 15 minutes of Rihanna’s ribbon-cutting, Bergdorf’s stock of shoes had sold out, as well as much of its apparel.

Schulman in his opening remarks at the event said, “The whole world is talking about ath-leisure, but here at Bergdorf’s we are all about ath-glamour.”

Discussing the decision to welcome Rihanna to Bergdorf’s, Schulman told WWD, “For us, Rihanna is an icon and when we first saw the [Fenty fashion] show Linda Fargo and I were so excited about it because we really felt that our customer would love this. It’s a very sexy, very modern approach to activewear.

This Magic Moment – Catch My Lash (Darling)

Portrait of a curly blonde
http://www.TheFashionImpire.com

What happens when you get 10 powerful entrepreneurs on a panel in front of an inquisitive audience?

Solutions are found, that’s what happens.

I believe no matter what the problem, there is a solution.

I’m one for Networking.  I was invited to “Catch My Lash” Beauty Event in Brooklyn on Saturday by my fellow Editor-in-Chief magazine owner, Ese of Enspire Magazine.  The event was held at Brooklyn Exposure, 1401 Bedford Avenue, produced by Blanch.  As most of you know, I don’t know Brooklyn and did not know if I would know anyone else there, but I went anyway, Googling my way along.

Upon arrival, I’m surprised by how many people I know and the professional set up.  There were vendors and food, my kind of place.  The surprise came when the panel started…

Each panelist introduced themselves, Supermodel Angela- of QVC, Boss Lady Wendy Isaac – Style the Wave, Ese of Enspire Magazine, Chefs, Make Up Manufacturers, Fashion Designers and more.

There were questions and answers, and then an audience member asked the critical question “Why Should Someone Patronize Your Businesses?” I had the perfect answer.

Why should someone purchase or read Fashion Avenue News Magazine or read our FAN Daily Fashion Blog.

Fashion Avenue News Magazine was created because years ago a model went to an Agency Open House and they told her she would NEVER MAKE IT IN THE MODELING BUSINESS.  The model came to my office in TEARS.  I was angry.  I don’t feel that anyone should ever tell someone they cannot make it.  My anger created Fashion Avenue News Magazine, a foundation for independent fashion industry talent, to have a platform and a place.  We welcome everyone, as long as they are FABULOUS.  Age, Height, Weight, Size, never determine if you can appear on our pages.  We are here for you; we are your fashion family.

More conversation ensured and we came to the conclusion that we need to work harder to support each other businesses.  It starts with you.  Think of where you spend your money.  If you are a small business, really think, because you can help other businesses stay in business by purchasing from them.

Change starts with YOU.  If you want something different, you have to do something different.

It was wonderful sitting on the panel with these ladies as they were extremely inspirational.  When you have a business and you’re under pressure or stress, it’s good to know there are other businesses owners that feel the same way, you are not in this by yourself, don’t feel alone.  We are all working to keep our businesses afloat.

One thing I explained on the panel, I am You, I have no special SuperPower, I’m working hard on my business just like the next magazine, fashion designer or makeup artists.  We chose this profession and no one said it would be easy, but nothing brings you happiness like having your own.

We can make it, if we do it together.

“Catch My Lash” is an annual business, beauty event featuring business and fashion.  Stop by Brooklyn Exposure 1401 Bedford Avenue and purchase some food or have a drink.  These businesses are in your community.  They can’t stay if we don’t support them.

Here are some of the businesses that were there:

Fashion Week Paris Couture Fall-Winter 2016-2017 Maison Margiela

fswpa101.15fr-highres

Innocence, risk, comfort, and protection. For the Autumn Winter 2016-17 Artisanal collection, creative director John Galliano explores a modern reinvention of haute couture through his most personal interpretation of Maison Margiela’s esprit to date. Evoking an illustrative line, aristocracy is decontextualized through an urban lens. Explosive and colourful gestures of authentic fabrics snake and kerb around the body with an Empire line, tweaked and transitioned in modern gestures of protection and ecstatic abandon. Archetypes are reconfigured with rigor and romance, where a blurring of sartorial trappings meets the banal.

fswpa101.08fr-highres

A sense of the incredible and the impossible spins throughout the Artisanal collection, where fantasy is tempered by the jarring authenticity of today’s reality. Our translation of a collective consciousness stretches further than ever before, invoking a timeless array of commonplace ephemera and things strangely familiar.” – Maison Margiela

MATERIALS
From fine muslin to resin-wax cottons or ripstop nylon, the rub of unprecious and delicate textiles is inherent to the collection’s tapestry of innovation and artisanal heritage. Opposing notions of feminine and masculine textiles are questioned and reconfigured with irreverence. Technical nylons meet Scottish wool from the Outer Hebrides, and motorcycle leathers bridge textiles woven from delicate cotton ribbons. Ornament appears as a ‘Toile de Jouy’ fabric, curvilinear ‘tribal’ studded motifs crossing swathes of knotted and padded wools, and celluloid bird appliqués decorating heavy plaid. A ‘cherubim’ lace is constructed from hundreds of minute individual fragments: it represents the technical apex of the Maison’s artisanal savoir-faire.

fswpa101.07fr-highres

TECHNIQUE
The seminal proposal of outerwear styles flip upside-down from an inverted stance of arching volumes to become a traditional coat shape. Garments betray multiple identities; assembled together from familiar archetypes to become layered hybrids with double lapels and undefined endings and beginnings. A windcheater is carved with the convex curve of a Watteau back; a banker’s stripe shirt is spun into a sweeping train. An intricate cartography of eaves and cornices forms a gown in vacuum-formed smoky plastic, another springs to life patched with Nick Knight’s British Birds (2008).

PALETTE
A burst of primary colours elevates the drab of tweed shades, as scarlet, emerald, sky blue, and sunshine yellow shine against charcoal, forest green, mustard, and chocolate brown. Mid-century pastels like ice blue and lemon sorbet fizz amongst the monochromes.

fswpa101.17fr

ACCESSORIES
Intricate hoop earrings and ornate bracelets are hand-carved in Portugal from walnut, pear and boxwoods, and chandelier crystals appear as blood red chokers, embellished goggles, and a primary-coloured contour bra top. The original Maison Margiela deep-cleft ‘Tabi’ boot returns as a thigh-high cuissard with a new moulded rubber sole, alongside trekking-inspired sandals, fantasy hand-painted clogs, and a masculine riding boot.

reliable.
