  • Homecoming 2012: Start Shopping Online!

    Styles for Fall Homecoming Dress collections have been hitting the inter-webs since the day Prom season ended.  With months until the next school year even begins, it seems that dress shopping this summer is a little farfetched, but think again!  Shopping for a Homecoming dress now means more widespread style and size selections for girls out there looking for their dream gowns.

    The 2012 Homecoming season will be draped in lace, and a lot of sparkle!  For your dance this fall you might want to wear a short dress, and save the floor-length ones for Prom in 2013.  Short cocktail dresses this year feature sequin designs and lace accents that are unique and stylish.  Vintage looks seem to be stirring up the most attention.  Sparkly dresses are everywhere, coming from designers like Sherri Hill, Alyce Paris, Tony Bowls, and Clarrise.  Sleek, fitted skirts and wide, poufy styles are being released, so you’re sure to find a dress that suits your personal style.

    If you plan on taking part in Homecoming court, or are looking for a more formal dress, long evening gown trends seem to be favoring a sweetheart bodice and empire waistline this year.  These long skirt styles make for a more regal look, and for those of you who hate wearing insanely high heels, this style makes you look a bit taller too.

    There are so many unique dresses out there right now, so don’t miss out on them when the crowds roll in this August and September.  Homecoming dress websites are posting hundreds of dresses every week.  It might still be summer, but designers are already in full swing making sure their fashions are looking great.  The perfect dress for you is waiting out there somewhere, now it’s just time to find it!

  • What’s the Name of the Game? Popular fashion companies are making some changes

    (June 21, 2012):  Today French high fashion design company Yves Saint Laurent announced they will soon be changing their entire brand name to “Saint Laurent Paris.”  Within minutes the topic was trending across Twitter and fashion blog sites, with everyone giving their opinions on the matter.  The news release was met with widespread criticism by fans dedicated to the YSL logo, that seem to think any name change will decrease brand value.

    In a statement released to the media, newly appointed YSL Creative Director Hedi Silmane explains that the name change comes after months of consideration.  His hopes are that the company’s re-branding will convey a more “modern” feel to fashion industry consumers, bringing in younger audiences and widening global interests.

    The revamp of YSL might actually be coming at a perfect time for the company, when re-branding seems to be in the mainstream.  Last year the Polo Ralph Lauren Corporation made a major jump, dropping the classic incorporation of Polo in their moniker in exchange for the simpler “Ralph Lauren.” Similarly, formal dress maker Alyce Designs recently became known as “Alyce Paris.” These name changes seem to allow companies a bit of revitalization, in addition to a slew of media coverage.  J.C. Penny’s adapted to using their nickname JCP recently, in addition to a new graphics campaign, while some like Forever 21 (formerly Fashion 21) saw a massive jump in popularity with a simple name modification.

    The digital age has been constantly changing culture for years – and might it be the answer to why so many companies are deciding to re-brand?  Picking a memorable name and logo that can be easily searched and shared online allows companies more recognition through a bigger, more noticeable, social following.

    Lucky Magazine reports that the YSL name change will become more apparent on advertising for now, but not on actual products for some time.  Shoe soles and clothing tags will still bear the classic YSL logo until next year with the release of the Spring-Summer 2013 collection by Hedi Slimane.
