When I think of a 'dream job,' having any association with a fashion and beauty magazine is the first thing that pops up in my mind. In between attending fashion events, viewing new accessories collections and working on editorial materials, you get the luxury of having intimate, one-on-one interactions with fashion and accessories designers. Kyle Anderson is among those whose job in the fashion industry can be seen as a dream job.
As the dog days of summer soon come to a close, so does our casual, summer wardrobe repertoire. Flip-flops, denim shorts, and tanks are to be retired for another year and a more sophisticated, chic style emerges from the depths of our closets. If you’re looking to achieve this season’s look, going with the still-strong animal print trend is a great way to go glam.
Military style and color have been prominent in fashion trends for the past few seasons, and this trend will continue marchinginto this fall and winter season. Along with the olive green that we have already talked about on Handbago, we'll be seeing a lot of vintage navy and sandy camel colors. In addition, what would military style be without tough hardware? This season, I was excited to find that chain straps, heavy buckles and military-inspired embellishments are to be seen all over the fashion scene for fall.
It seems that for Fall 2010 designers are looking back to the 1980's for inspiration. I am taken back to when we were "living in a material world," the days of big hair, and bright colors. Which brings me to one the hottest trends for Fall, LACE. Re-designed with a bit more class, but still keeping its sex appeal. Ithink we can all thank Madonna and her lace obsession for some of the sexiest handbags to hit the scene!
Rafé New York has always been on top of the trends. For Rafé Totengco's Spring 2010 Collection he embodied the LA girl in every bag. However, now he is going back to where he is from . Back to Brooklyn, where he uses its "counter-culture Fashionista" to inspire his Fall 2010 Collection.
While Summer is warm, sunny and if you're lucky, full of days at the beach, Autumn is the most favored season by most, especially those in the fashion world. Fall fashion is what governs the trends for not only the rest of the current year but of the months following. The "Back to School" craze, the cooler weather, and the preparation for winter holidays all fuel the frenzy of Fall fashion insuring designers work year round to put their best foot forward to debut their Fall Collections.
