So just like that October came and went faster than you could ask, “Do these shoes go with this?” With my boyfriend leaving for Holland and the finish of Phoenix Fashion Week I was convinced I would be utterly bored. Oh on the contrary, believe it or not I am still not fully caught up on watching fashion week videos from Paris, New York, and London. Thank the fashion Gods for Balenciaga’s line to get me through.
World High Fashion Forecast: So much has gone on this past month, and there is even more to come. No worries, I know just where to start. Alexander Wang, please don’t go! According to the New York Times, “Kering, the French luxury goods conglomerate, announced on Friday that the designer Alexander Wang was leaving the helm of Balenciaga after less than three years by ‘joint decision.” It was sad seeing his designs for Balenciaga take the runway for the last time. However the designer is on to bigger and better things, with more time to work on his own collection.
Alexander Wang is not the only one on his way out. After 11 years Raf Simons of Christian Dior says goodbye for, “personal reasons.” This was also his last fashion week under Dior. It is all out with the old and in with the new even in American fashion houses. Tommy Hilfiger introduces a new digital showroom. Apparently, the showroom will deliver much more details, and aid in the buying process.
World Fast Fashion Forecast: We are anticipating two things this month, at least I am. The Balmain Paris for H&M collab will be hitting stores today, November 5th (Ah)! The line is filled with silk and sequins, and I am not really sure how I will go on without a few pieces in my wardrobe.
Seeing as I do not get paid until next week, I am seriously considering going into my saving account. I could be addicted to much worse things, okay. While many of the pieces still have a pricey tag, I think it’s amazing that girl’s like me (college students and part time Urban Outfitter employees) will be able to get a little taste of high fashion. Not only do the Kardashians love designer Olivier Rousteing, but his line too.
I am also waiting to see what goes down in court as Steve Madden gets sued for their look-a-like Stella McCartney bag. This strikes me as confusing. Don’t most things from Steve Madden looks like knock offs of popular but already made styles? I am just wondering how they usually manage staying out of court. Don’t get me wrong- ladies if you can’t afford it you might as well by the next best thing.
My Fashion Forecast: As for me, just because I took a tiny little break from blogging don’t think that I have been taking a break from fashion. In fact I haven’t taken a break from fashion internship applications. Applying to a fashion internship isn’t all fun and games. I didn’t think for a second that all it takes is one resume and a few cover letters. No surprise I was right.
I am a firm believer that ultimately we are meant to end up right where we belong, and if you know yourself you’ll know where that will be. Sometimes you’ll know before and sometimes you’ll have to have happen to just find yourself there with a feeling like, “Yes, I’m home.” That being said you need to give a little to get a little. No matter who you are.
After all the motivational speeches are said and done good things come to those who have taken action. Currently fashion magazines, and a Little Dictionary of Fashion cover my nightstand. You say you want this, well honey prove it. I am not saying I am going to get anything from any of this, but no matter what happens after my interviews. I will know that I at least I tried. Disclaimer: Aside from heart, I will need luck and a lot of it, so cross your fingers, please and thank you.
