- GITA OMRI'S "MARRIAGE IS WONDERLAND" SPRING SUMMER 2024
On Friday, September 8th, Gita Omri unveiled her highly anticipated Spring Summer 2024 collection, Marriage is Wonderland, during NYFW. The collection had themes of 70s disco and 80s pop, with the color palette ranging from subtle navy blues to pops of pink. The designer also incorporated black and white pieces to round out the collection. Omri played with classic spring design elements like color blocking and metallic florals to create unique statements pieces. The collection explores relationship dynamics through all its stages, starting off with the vibrant pinks, or "rose colors" as Omri called them, to signify the honeymoon phase. The show then transitioned to the metallic silvers and navies for the next stage, switching between the color scheme to represent the highs and lows of a long-term relationship. The collection seems to allude to the commonly known four stages of relationship stages studied by experts. Omri compared the collection to a meaningful bond, describing it as, "joy, and ecstasy, its laughter, and pleasure and pain, and anger, and deep deep love, and annoyance, and elation, and disdain, and wonderful!!!" Some pieces even made the dichotomy of relationships the focal point through a quite literal split down the middle or mix of contrasting patterns in sophisticated ready-to-wear designs. The fashion show was held at Wonderland Dreams, an immersive Alice in Wonderland themed art exhibit by Alexa Meade. This strategic set added to Omri's vision of exploring the intersection between love and fashion as the imagery brought the garments to life. Omri bridged together the collection with the exhibit, saying, "Just like in Wonderland, you never know what or who is going to come around the next bend. All you can expect is whatever will come your way will be wonderful in its own way and as long as you travel together you will always be home." Along with the set, a focus was created on the collection through the choice of styling for the models. The makeup was kept simple with a dewy look emphasizing each model's rosy cheeks with the heavy blush look recently popularized through Tik Tok. The models' hair was parted down the middle and put up in a bun to further create focus on the clothes rather than the hair and makeup. The looks were accessorized with heart-shaped earrings, alternating between white and pink for different looks. For the shoes, the designer stuck to simple black strappy heels. The collection succeeded in evoking emotion for the attendees, which included Crystal Waters, Reyna Roberts and Jules Wainstein. Carmit Bachar, a former member of The Pussycat Dolls, walked in the show amongst an array of diverse models representing the average woman. Each look from the show was showcased twice, by two models with different body types, as Omri works on her mission to make luxury fashion size inclusive. In an interview with Beauty Within Magazine, Omri said, "Inclusive sizing is... synonymous with womenswear... I want this to be the norm and not be my story." The collection ranges from sizes 0 to 30 according to the designer's website. Omri's story is only expanding with the innovative new collection. The designer is meshing together the springs and dog days of a relationship for a Spring Summer collection that will only domino new trends for the season.
- THE SUNDAY SHAWL: THE 2023 MTV VMAS RED CARPET
Source: Harper's Bazaar The 2023 MTV Video Music Awards Red Carpet On Tuesday, September 12th, musical superstars came together for the MTV Video Music Awards, or as advertised, "the most exciting night in music."

Taylor Swift, the most talked-about person of the night, wore a Reputation-era inspired Versace number and accessorized with jewelry from an array of designers. Doja Cat wore a Ap0cene spider-web dress inspired by Scarlet while Selena Gomez went for an Oscar de la Renta red floral design. Cardi B, Olivia Rodrigo and Shakira rocked the iconic metallic Moonman look, in their respective Dilara Findikoglu, Ludovic de Saint Sernin and Versace dresses. This has been the most star-studded VMAs in years, as fans pointed out, and the ratings are reflecting that. With performances from Cardi B, Rodrigo, Cat, etc. the Video Music Awards are going back to its glamorous roots. Source: Wallpaper Alaïa / Grès. Beyond Fashion New fashion exhibit in Paris is showcasing some of the haute couture collected by iconic designer and "king of cling," Azzedine Alaïa. The collection is the largest archive of 19th and 20th century couture, with over 15,000 pieces, around 700 being from French couturier, Madame Grès. The exhibit highlights the similarities between the work of the two greats, emphasizing Alaïa's inspiration from Grès in his own works. This is one of many exhibits of Alaïa's collection in the last few years. This gallery is complete with a bookstore, coffee shop and a newly opened restaurant, making it the perfect destination for a fashion-loving tourist. The exhibit is open to the public now and runs through February 11th, 2024. Moschino's 40th Anniversary: Spring Summer 2024 On Thursday, September 21st, Moschino held a 40th anniversary celebration show at Milan Fashion Week. The show was completely thought out by four stylists that interpreted the legacy of the fashion house. Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, Katie Grand, Gabriella Karefa-Johnson and Lucia Liu looked through Moschino archives to construct the new collection collection for next season. The runway show, as fans noticed, was nostalgic to the golden days of runway, from the ambiance to the models. One fan commented on X saying, "models are being allowed to show personality on the runway again at Moschino ss24, WE'RE SOO BACK LIKE NEVER BEFORE." The collection included classic Moschino elements, from the splashy colors to the gold chains, and left the viewers satisfied. Source: Journeys Dreamworks' Shrek x Crocs Classic Clog Crocs has partnered up with Dreamworks Animation for a Shrek-inspired design. The new Shrek-green crocs are blowing up on social media as fans of the beloved character try to get their hands on them. The design is complete with ogre ears and nose, as well as a strap resembling the character's original brown outfit. Over the years, Shrek has become a cultural phenomenon and is better known today than when the movie were originally released in the early 2000s. This collaboration is a testament to the brand of Shrek as many try to replicate the designs and invent new Shrek-themed items. Source: The Guardian John Fetterman's Controversial Senate Style Pennsylvania senator, John Fetterman, has been a topic of discussion for his unusual style for Congress. He's often seen attending meetings in hoodies and shorts, a stark difference from the Founding Father days of powdered faces and wigs. This has left critics torn, with some saying it's a poor representation of the country while others believe it's "good for the system" of inclusivity. Since this uproar, Congress has removed its centuries long dress code. This has upset many who think the decision is "pathetic" while uniting others who think there's bigger issues to focus on. So overall this week, we've had stars dressing up for the Video Music Awards and senators dressing down for Congress, and Shrek in there somewhere. From New York to London to now Milan Fashion Week, it has been a satisfying week for fashion.
- FASHION HISTORY: THE CARDIGAN
Who's to say that James Thomas Brudenell, the 7th Earl of Cardigan, had any clue that his name would be a Taylor Swift song? Somewhere between Brudenell and Swift, though, came the cardigan sweater, a knitted outerwear piece that has become the staple in fall fashion. In fact, for many, putting on their favorite cardigan is a signifier for the transition of seasons, and people find ways to fit the cardigan into their style. Origins: Army to Working Class It started with Brudenell, often referred to as Cardigan in historical documents, a sharply dressed British lieutenant-general during the Crimean War. The general was known for his lavish sleeveless jacket which provided protection against the cold and the enemies weapons. Brudenell, although infamous for stranding his men at a battle in 1854, became a cultural icon in Britain through his vest, eventually serving as its namesake. Soon enough by 1864, British merchants began production of cardigans for sailors. The new garment eventually became popular amongst the working class, as it provided warmth while working in dyre conditions, when nautical attire crossed over into mainstream fashion. Source: National Army Museum UK Womenswear: Formal to Comfort By 1910s and 20s, knitwear had become a staple for most people's closets, and the cardigan travelled from Britain to across Europe and the Americas. Different styles of cardigans, from cardigan vests for women's fashion to cardigan jackets marketed as replacements for men's blazers. Designer, Coco Chanel, helped solidify buttoned sweaters, like the cardigan, in womenswear. Chanel preferred them because they didn't mess up her hair. The designer was often photographed wearing cardigans, which is an element of Chanel that has stayed alive throughout the years. Queen Elizabeth II was also seen dawning cardigans in her off-duty photographs throughout the decades, whether it was in her office or in the gardens of her palace being caught by the paparazzi. The Queen, dissimilar to Chanel, made the cardigan a comfort garb. By the 40s, the garment was something you wore at home on a lazy day and never outside. Sweater Girls When the 50s and 60s rolled around, there was a new way to wear cardigans. Actresses like Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland popularized the "sweater girls" craze of the time. The trend, which was rooted in sexism, was complete with tight-fitted crew necks and cardigans, leaving little of the silhouette to the imagination. This sexualization of the garment kept it in the boundaries of womenswear, transitioning from formal to comfy to now provocatory. The trend, which ended becoming a popular film and TV show trope, even had a movie inspired by it. Sweater Girls, the film, focused on two teenage girls trying to preserve their virginities, further sexualizing the cardigan with its promotional imagery. Source: Film Noir Photos Menswear Eventually, in the 60s and 70s, cardigans entered menswear after actors were seen in films dawning the sweaters. Rex Harrison and Fred Rogers wore them for their respective roles in My Fair Lady and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. Around this time, President Jimmy Carter rocked a tan cardigan in a televised speech which TIME Magazine named one of the best political fashion statements. Although cardigans remained prominent in womenswear throughout the decades, the next big cardigan trend was with Kurt Cobain, who brought splashy colorful cardigans to the 90s. In fact, his iconic green MTV Unplugged performance cardigan was sold for $334,000. Source: Racked Cardigans in The Modern Day Now, cardigans are a bonafide fall necessity for most people. Cardigans are used for different styles from cottage-core to model-off-duty. From the original knitted style of the sweater to Kurt Cobain's twist, every cardigan goes these days depending on the style approach. From basics to patterned and multi-colors, cardigans have formed a life of their own that has come a far journey from its original military days. Chanel is keeping the cardigan momentum going a century after its creator brought it to the forefront of fashion. Brands like Gucci have also created their personalized versions of the garment for the autumn romanticizing consumers. The cardigan is prevalent in pop culture through Taylor Swift's song, cardigan, and paparazzi shots of stars like Bella Hadid and Jacob Elordi. This is to say that the cardigan has received better press than most trendy garments that come and go, being the only trendy garment to last the test of time. Source: Vogue
