Soft fabric, cosiness like a cocoon, choice of soft colors pink, light blue and gray. The style and nothing but the style …

Bettina Graziani was one of the most famous models in the 1950’s. She became Aga Khan’s son mistress, Ali Akan, after his divorce with Rita Hayworth till his death in 1960.
Muse of Jacques Fath, she then becomes a famous model thanks to photographs and american magazines like the Harper’s Bazaar which make her famous. She personifies the chic and the free parisian woman so different from the female of her time. In 1952, she helped Hubert de Givenchy to create his house of Haute Couture. She presented the collection and looked after the press relations. She was known and knew especially from Paris.
Fashion Icone, most of women today could take this extraordinary woman as an example. We present our sincere sympathy to her family.
Once upon a time, there was a flower called, the Rose and a child named Dolce & Gabbana. One day whereas he was walking in his garden dotted with thousands of flowers of all colors, with a thousand sweet perfumes, he was attracted by one of them, a very pretty pink Rose. A Rose… a child… freshness, escape and dreams. What pleasantly distract us from a prosaic daily, whose gravity affects us always more.
A Rose of March, to keep it alife as long as possible, I put it in water and I hide it in the bottom of my desk. Every moment I contemplated … He escaped from this senacle a fragrance that was floating in my house a surprising burst of dream and desire. Read more »
John B. Fairchild passed away Friday morning at the age of 87 after an accomplished career in fashion publishing.
Mr. Fairchild served as the publisher and editor-in-chief of Women’s Wear Daily and was the founding editor of W magazine. His death will likely spark a celebration of his life and accomplishments and drive attention to the publications he impacted throughout his lifetime.
He was feared by generations of fashion designers. However he always was considered as fair and most of them listened to his wise advices.
Fashion icon, Mr. Fairchild became the European
Celebrating a milestone decade of creating fearlessly, Gareth Pugh triumphantly marked the occasion with his return to London, and to the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Plunging the room into darkness, the show opened with a film projection of a lone woman bathed in eerie red light, the symbol of both love and war, in a film directed by long-time collaborator Ruth Hogben.
The footage showed a lone defiant muse as she coarsely hacked off her long blonde hair then, in another act of liberation, anointed herself smearing the red of Saint George’s cross over her face, arms and chest.
St George’s Cross is a red cross on a white background. The design has been in use since the crusades, and it became associated with Saint George, the “warrior saint” often depicted as a crusader, from the late Middle Ages. The Warrior Gareth Pugh is back Read more »
The Fashion designer Kate and Laura Mulleavy sisters turned to the beauty of birds and their poetic migration patterns to inspire their romantic yet rock and roll creations.
As the rock star sang their 70’s classic “Run to Me” and the models appeared like shimmering sequined-covered exotic birds of paradise to close out the show, this collection reached its lyrical climax.
Actually, it’s not quite fair to say that the Mulleavys didn’t acknowledge the disco debt: Laura owned up to it after a bit of prodding, saying that her and Kate’s interest in birds had guided them toward the disco theme.
Once again proving that Rodarte is a brand that dreams big and dares even bigger.

Sophie Theallet is a French fashion designer whose clients include First Lady Michelle Obama and she is promoted by the famous American fashion gourou, Anna Wintour, herself.
Sophie Theallet, inspired by French Casual Chic, designs swatches of lace wrapped around models’ necks which pushed the romance or the flirty vibe which seems slightly fussy. There were a few stumbles — quite literally as the final model tried to make her way up and down the runway in her gold full-length ruffled dress, but no stumbles for Sophie, who for a long time has been considered as a very promising designer. She successfully combines a Spain trip with a France 1950’s and, thus, reinvents the casual chic.
It is always extraordinary that such French fashion designers have to go abroad to be recognised. This is surely due, still the same problem, a lack of professionalism and agoraphobia from the people who lead the Federation or institutions governing fashion in France!!!
Anyway, at Canal-Luxe group, we will be delighted to report on you if you come to present your collection. We will put at your disposal our Read more »
Last Monday, the favorite designer of the former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Carolina Herrera made waves on the catwalk for a Fall/Winter collection inspired by water.

After more than 30 years in the business, Herrera known for her lady-like clothes, says the secret of longevity is to look to the future. She is today beloved by Read more »
Once again, this season he turned to the mountains as a source of inspiration. It is a starting point that has served him well in the recent past. This time he looked to the Adirondacks (The Adirondack Mountains /ædɨˈrɒndæk/ are an unusual geological formation located in the north eastern lobe of Upstate New York in the United States).This was a Read more »
