  • Floral Prints – Don’t You Forget About Me

    Floral Print Dress ClassicDecorating our clothing with flowers has been a tradition for hundreds of year.  Originating in Asia, large floral prints on women’s kimonos represented natural beauty and femininity.  Europeans, fascinated by this culture, adapted floral prints for their own society during the renaissance.  It became a fashion statement for upper class women to wear dresses made from luxurious fabrics covered in beautiful flower patterns.

    During the 1940s, floral dresses became the most popular trend.  Looking back to that time, it’s impossible not to picture women without their wavy curls, pearl earrings, and flower printed frocks.   How Retro says that “As fashion seasons come and go, floral dresses rise and fall in popularity yet have remained a constant in women's clothes.”  The delicate qualities of the flower makes wearing a floral print seem truly feminine.

    “This season is all about the power of flower print,” announced Jovani in their recent newsletter.  Runway trends are all about pastel and neon colors, with “garden-inspired” prints being used in new and unique ways.  Whether you’re looking for a casual dress, or something more formal, you’ll be able to find a floral dress for the occasion.  Pick an accent color from one of the flowers to match your accessories and makeup, and your outfit will be a hit.  It looks like this classic style is here to stay!

       

  • Celeb Style - Katy Perry Releases New Movie

    Katy Perry’s new concert documentary, Part of Me, hits theaters nationwide today.  The 3D movie chronicles the pop singer’s life on and off-stage throughout her last world tour.  People magazine reports, “In the film, Perry opens up about her split from Russell Brand at the end of last year.”  Although celebrities are always in the media, it’s not often that their true personal stories are able to be shared.  In Katy Perry: Part of Me, fans will be able to identify with the singer, as a person who is not only a superstar, but just like them.

    Perry has said, “It’s important to be relatable and normal.”  Although she loves creating out-of-this-world outfits and over-the-top dresses, she still wants everyone to know that she is a regular person too.  Some of the footage in her new film is hard for the singer to watch, since she remembers the rough time she was going through while breaking up with Brand.  She invites audiences to “be a part of her” as they watch the movie and get to see a bit of what her life is really like.

    Known for her array of fashion styles, from ‘60s pin-up girl to classic Hollywood glitz, Katy Perry always dresses to impress.  She loves bright, flashy colors, and fun patterns.  In music videos, or on stage, her outfits are always sexy, playful, and a bit theatrical.  These unique dresses are some of our favorite styles that totally capture Katy Perry’s look.

  • 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.
