In a few weeks, a new Fashion MasterClass program by the Arts of Fashion Foundation will start again in Paris and inspire the world’s most talented new fashion designers – and the fashion world along with them. The program is internationally known and sought-after for its high standards and for being a forerunner of innovation and inspiration. You’ll see what we mean when you see some of the previous student’s work:
Over the summer months, the inspiration for hair and makeup projects or fashion shoots can easily dissipate a bit in the heat. Now is the best time to let your mind wander, make room for some new ideas, and travel a bit – maybe all of the above!
Here’s an exhibition that will give you a nice and colorful cocktail of fresh ideas and creative inspiration: The Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York is running their famous Design Triennial – this time to the topic “Beauty”:
This shoot has been released a while ago, but it’s so AWESOME we wanted to give it a special spotlight: Steven Meisel shot this gorgeous and timeless photo series with model Fei Sun for Vogue Italia. We love the attitude and design feel of it, and of course the ever-so-hot inspiration of sixties bombshell diva style! Don’t you agree?
Which aspects of this shoot do you personally find most appealing?
Celebrating daring colors and bold style, Vogue Taiwan just came out with a special “geek chic” issue, featuring model Maria Palm in a geeky but very chic editorial indeed. We’re seeing all kinds of style inspirations here, from sixties and seventies glam to classical elegance, whimsical graphic inspirations, British Punk Rock elements all the way to sparkling Las Vegas showgirl sparkle…
What a bold move! But fashion editor/stylist Melaney Oldenhof made it work! Bravo!
Chanel never ceases to amaze – we’re sure you all agree. This time we’re not referring to Coco Chanel’s iconic style, story, impressive talent and legacy, nor to one of Karl Lagerfeld’s many strikes of genius… but to something they launched as part of their brand communication:
If you haven’t been over to their website recently, do it! They created a truly alluring micro-site that shares a peek INSIDE CHANEL, in a most engaging sort of way. We created a collage from screenshots for you – those alone are eye candy. For the full experience see it for yourself though! (Scroll down for the link!)
Time for an artist spotlight to send you off into an inspired weekend! We just stumbled across the illustrator and watercolor artist Sunga Park from Taipei, Taiwan. She’s absolutely incredible!
She travels the world, capturing magnificent architecture landmarks in mesmerizing watercolor masterpieces. Yes, masterpieces. That’s how much we like them! We’re also intrigued by what happens when she photographs her art… it seems as if her paintings come to life and reach yet another dimension! See for yourself:
Sunga is self-taught artist and achieved international acclaim and fame all on her own. Bravo!
