Simone Rocha

Simone Rocha can cut according to, and she certainly can! Since growing up in Dublin, Ireland, raised by her esteemed fashion designer father John Rocha, it was no surprise that Simone would make the fashion headlines with her younger approach to fashion and luxurious choice of fabrics. This girl is definitely one to watch. After just two years graduating from Central St. Martins, Rocha is already on the London Fashion Week schedule.

With J.W Anderson, Edun and now Simone, it seems the Irish might just take over the fashion world.

New York Spring 2013 Top 5 Shows

New York was great this year. Between collections of 1960’s glamour and innovative silhouettes and prints came covetable, wearable clothes. These 5 shows I have chosen as my favorite was a hard choice considering the extremely successful collections each designer delivered. Strong trends came through right from the start and the New York Fashion Week hype buzzed around the city better then ever before!

DVF Through Glass

Want to see behind the eyes of Fashion Week? Well now you can.

Google has asked designer Diane von Furstenberg, her team and models to wear a new camera they have brought out which is placed beside the eye to record exactly what someone can see. The Result? A fascinating video that even created butterflies in my stomach as one model made her way to open the show on front of 300 people! The work, dedication and glamour is finally visible to OUR eyes.

Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel

Words cannot describe the influence Diana Vreeland had towards the fashion world. Her vision, her drive, her enthusiasm, her passion created something new and interesting. Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel is a new documentary created by her granddaughter-in-law Lisa Immordino Vreeland. With interviews with designers Vreeland founded, like Manolo Blahnik and Oscar De La Renta and icons she created like Anjelica Huston and Lauren Hutton it is well worth a watch. Not only do you get an inside look into her glamorous lifestyle, but also a sense of what she was like as a person, colleague and friend. Her unique wit makes it a comical experience. She is dearly missed and we cannot thank her enough for what she did to the fashion world.

Joseph Altuzarra has had no formal fashion training. No contacts, no money, no college degree; Just a guy with a dream. Somehow for Altuzarra it worked! After three major jobs with Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler and Givenchy it was finally time to set up his own company. Since then Altuzarra has become an overnight sensation with his Fall 2012 collection catching every editors eye, launched a range for J Crew inspired by Lana Del Rey and won the 2011 CFDA/Vogue annual fund. Not bad for a guy with just a dream! This Saturday, Altuzarra will show his Spring/Summer 2013 collection, expectations are high and everyone who is anyone will be there. The future looks bright for Joseph Altuzarra.
