One of the most influential woman in fashion system is the protagonist of Wall street Journal's cover of april 2011. We are talking about the Vogue USA's editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour.
This poweful fashion woman has chosen Mario Testino as photographer for her pics. She is chosen by the popular magazine because she represents one of the most influential women in USA; she is compared to Oprah Winfrey and Martha Stewart. In this cover, Vogue USA's editor-in-chief is obviously represented with her trademark pageboy bob haircut and her unfailing sunglasses ( Chanel in this case ).
The title of this editorial?? " The business of being Anna ".

Hi guys! The famous publishing house Skira has published a book who deals with Gianfranco Ferrè's sketches ( 375 ) from 1977 to 1997. These drawings represent the idea of this designer: " clothes like dynamic structures ". About drawings, Ferrè thought that it is " passion and necessity together, point of departure of design " .
This book wants to build an intellectual way, to represent sketches as espressions of freedom, creativity and method, but at the same time they are daily exercises, job.
Ferrè is very famous for his synthetic mark, where the precision of details is hidden. Few lines and few splashes of colour give movement to his sketches.
All these elements ( precision, conciseness..) are consequences of the first Ferre's job : the architecture.
Here some wonderful sketches :

 «Il libro vuole mostrare i disegni come strumento di lavoro, non come opere d'arte. Data la ricchezza della produzione grafica di Gianfranco Ferré - l'immensità direi, dato che siamo nell'ordine delle decine di migliaia di originali – abbiamo operato una drastica ma necessaria selezione, escludendo i disegni tecnici come i figurini, privilegiando invece la tipologia del disegno-progetto, quella che meglio spiega la concezione dell'abito come architettura tessile, come risultato di un intervento ragionato sulle forme, sui volumi e sulle proporzioni». Rita Airaghi, direttrice della fondazione Gianfranco Ferrè.

Check out these stunning Vogue covers in the world.
I find them so cute!! I want every single magazine of all countries!!

Paris fashion week includes Azzaro fall / winter 2011's collection. Vanessa Seward, Azzaro's fashion director , has behind her back a lot of experiences ( she also worked for Chanel ). Glamour and elegance are undisputed ingredients of this fashion house and of this Agentinian designer. She inherited these features from her family, that loves art and fashion.
We know Azzaro is very famous for its perfumes and gowns.. But in this collection there is a big novelty: the absence of evening dresses. This is strange if we considerer that Azzaro's gowns are very usual in red carpets ( Natalie Portman wore this brand in SAG awards ).
Vanessa Seward's creations for winter 2011 include little black dresses, evening jumpsuit ( this is a news ) and tuxedos.
Principal colours are : black, white, silver, gold. A lot of materials like chiffon, furs, lace, jersey, feathers and lurex are employed.
Personally i love this collection. Bon ton and elegance are key-words of Azzaro's style.
All the creations are perfect for sophisticated women which have career and want to be cool for the job and for cocktail events.

these are my favourtie outfits:
( in my last post i have done polyvore's set featuring Azzaro style. I used items under 50 euro. Check out it:

Hi guys, today i want to talk you about an emerging german designer, Alba Prat, who employed lasercut neoprene in her creations. ( Neoprene was invented by two scientist and is the first residue of synthetic rubber. It is elastic, cut-resistant, hot-resistant..For these reasons, this material is employed in the production of technical and sport clothes like wet suits. ).
This fashion student was inspired from " synthetic oceans ". The outfits are made in lasercut neoprene, a material who becomes second skin and protect people when they are in the deep waters of ocean.


"The aquatic world is being transformed into a grey and contaminated place without life as a result of the industrialization era. Thousands tons of plastic end in the ocean every year. As plastic hardly disintegrates, a synthetic environment is slowly coming over the underwater creatures, who in order to survive must  adapt or  will die.
The intersection between nature and this synthetic world is the basis of my collection". ( Alba Prat )
