Fur ‘nd Feathers

At Fall 2013′s ready-to-wear season we watched a flurry of furs come down the runway, as if some oblique sooth-saying projections for a freezing next winter have been circulating the fashion industry. From Chanel’s colorful helmets to Marni’s fox fur stoles to Valentino’s spotted capes, the push for pristine furs worn in creative ways will, no doubt, define next Fall’s and Winter’s wardrobe. Using fur and feathers the way peacocks use plumage, many a fashion editorial has thus recommended these soft materials of coverage to make a fine, luxurious, and parrot-like statement. Here, for your viewing pleasure therefore, I have included various fur and feather editorials, exhibiting a bevy of ways to wear nature’s most luxuriate materials! See, shop, and enjoy! xoxo -FrozenFashions

NYFW Fall 2013: David Tlale

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

South African native David Tlale has a flair for dramatics. Over the past ten years, he has established a brand recognizable for its hours of craftsmanship, complex design, and statement pieces in the luxury-wear market. At his Lincoln Center presentation this past New York Fashion week, I was privileged enough to see his models donning lustrous clothes, glinting with lace, lamé, and tulle, which added texture to some familiar silhouttes. Tlale’s sense of ballroom elegance, red carpet poise, and exaggerated office wear, though beautiful, is not suited for the subdued woman. These statement clothes take a powerful person to pull off. Being at his Fall/Winter 2013 presentation was like going pearl diving in a bed of open oysters. So, here are a few original images I took at the show! Enjoy, share, and please shop where available!  -xoxo FrozenFashions

Sizing Up the SciFi Editorial

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Science Fiction – or, the idea of technology that could exist but doesn’t – has captured fashion’s thinking minds since the mid-sixties. The Kennedy era saw the ‘Space Race,’ a Russian vs. American competition to reach the moon first. And photographs of its winners resounded around the world, leaving its astronauts eternally famous. Today, fashion photographers are still inspired by the Neil Armstrong pictures Kodak released, and the curiosity about how far humans can go. Here the SciFi Editorial is born. It tends to tell the story of a space traveler who interacts with future tech, donning futuristic fashions to boot! References spanning from Star Wars to Prometheus have resulted in robots, flying saucers, and astro-gear fit for today’s fashionista. Thus, for your pleasure, here are a few fun pics! Sit back, relax, and prepare for the journey of a lifetime (or a Tuesday, depending).            Gratefully, FrozenFashions

Nun For You

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Religion plays an important role within the history of fashion. From popes to priests to rabbis and rebbetzins, the religious always fashion themselves in iconic garb to catch our eyes. Habits, tights, wigs, and hats – these are clothes that religion loves. In fact, the more religious one gets, the more she cares about fashion (or what she wears). Religion loves fashion, and Fashion loves religion. Thus the Religion Editorial was birthed. Referencing nuns, rabbis, and other majestically clothed peoples, these editorials draw a connection between modern garb and the uniforms of the religious that have been in play for centuries. The editorials that follow focus mainly on Christianity and Judaism, as they are the most conspicuous religions in Western culture. So, sit back, relax, and meditate on these Religion-inspired beauties!             xoxo -FrozenFashions

The Bold Lip

Lipstick can tak a look from shlub to chic in mere minutes! More than eyeshadow, a dramatic lip makes us look at you. It says: I am an artist, this is my statement, and kiss me at your own peril. And nowadays, the bold lip is gaining traction as companies are making more shades than we can name! Gloss is pretty, Chapstick is natural, and red is just so old-hat; so take a minute to step outside the box. Line, define, and please get crazy (as these shades are not just for ladies)! Enjoy! xoxo -FrozenFashions

Models Do Eat

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

“Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,” Kate Moss once said in her infamous WWD interview, “you try to tell yourself, but it never works.” Models are humans, albeit skinny ones, who are paid to diet and exercise. But there still exists a stigma of the starvation-prone model. This has given rise to a number of editorials that counteract it, to show models chowing down, drinking up, overindulging, and rolling around in food like pillows. These editorials over-show the model’s relationship with food to dispel such nasty starvation rumors. Models eat. SEE??? But probably not in such large quantities. Here are few edits that do just that! So whet your appetite, grab a stick of gum, and chew on this – a little food for thought! Now let the hunger games begin! xoxoxox -FrozenFashions

Models and Music

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Models and music share a rich reciprocal history. To set the mood, so many photo-shoots involve heart-pumping music – as fashion shows do – that it’s no surprise so many girls transition careers with familiarity from fashion to music. Think of models like Agyness Deyn and Jamie Bochert who have taken their beauty and fame and translated them into this new medium. What’s the connection? Movement comes from music; one cannot pose without a dancer’s sense of musicality, or timing. So, many models end up as DJ’s (Leigh Lezark), singers (Irina Lazareanu), guitarists (Carla Bruni), and more as they have a musician’s ear. Here are some pics that riff off this concept! So turn up your speakers, pump up the bass, and browse the new content to your heart’s… content! Enjoy, share, love, and imitate! xoxo, yours -FrozenFashions

Welcome to today’s double post: Eyes and Vogue! Aka: what you see and what you get. In editorial, makeup artistry can elevate an image from the quotidian (everyday) to the realm of perfection. While it’s tough to rock a true dramatic eye, some nightlife scenes let us get away with such murder – not to mention Halloween and costume balls too! Scientifically speaking, eyes are the first place we look when sizing up another human, so to dramatize that feature can turn one’s first impression into an explosion of beauty. Here are a few awesome eyes for you viewing pleasure, along with a special additional section: Vogue in Editorial. Hopefully these images will inspire you to experiment, get messy. Just remember “water that is too pure has no fish, so retain a measure a grime,” people, retain a measure of grime, and paint your friggin eyes!   (Ancient Buddhist quote) xoxo FrozenFashions

The Art of Dances

, , , , , , , , , ,

Dancing, like modeling, is all about tension and relaxation – pose and poise. Thus, many a model arrives with a strategic dance background. In editorial, dance highlights a fluidity and versatility in clothes, while invoking the artistic history of dance. Many a fashion has derived from a it – from Flamenco-wear to Ballroom gear to Ballet flats and more. This double artistry is breath-takingly beautiful, modern and classic, while full of great compositional shapes. So please do enjoy! Without further ado, I give you Fashion’s funnest dance editorials!                             Be blessed, xoxo -FrozenFashions
