    Is Yuima Nakazato Spring Summer 2019 Haute Couture Collection Really Couture?
    Japanese designer Yuima Nakazato’s recent Haute Couture Collection is different from most Haute Couture collections in that it’s sustainable and doesn’t use a sewing machine. How is this possible as couture fashion is all about sewing using luxurious fabrics? Nonetheless, this collection is rightfully couture because of its unique customization system. Let us explain.

    Nakazato’s concept uses an earth-friendly upcycling process of taking our preexisting clothing and priceless items with experience and memories, and revitalizing it to give new life so it can be worn longer. This upcycling is combined with a new production system called Type-1, a combination of digital fabrication and artisanal techniques in creating clothes without the use of a needle and thread. Rivets, metal or plastic studs are used to piece together laser-cut fabrics from our preloved items to make a one-of-kind garment, with no sewing machine needed.

    The collection was demonstrated in a short fashion film about a widowed elderly woman who took her husband’s cherished paintings, and reconstructed it into exquisite, meaningful smock dresses. The story opened with the gray-haired woman wearing a collared garment with silver-studded trims around the seams. It highlighted the details of the studding, before moving on to the next look, a pleated collarless smock dress with studded seams and floral art design at the front and back.

    Undoubtedly, these dresses now have an extended lifetime and are of great significance to the wearer. Hence, the title of this collection, “Life.” Nakazato explains, “If we can wear our own experiences, memories or things we own, maybe we would like to keep the clothes longer.” With that said, the answer is yes, this made-to-order customized collection has a purpose and is nothing short of Haute Couture!

    Lela Rose Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
    A Lela Rose presentation is always an event. Not the type of event bogged down by privileged front-row patrons, or one that is a damning reflection on the ills of society. No, a Lela Rose event is there to provide fantasy, whimsy, and a delicious cocktail or two served on demand while the spectacle of her latest collection plays out. Lela Rose, the designer behind the eponymous brand, began her career in fashion in 1996 when, after finishing her work at Parson’s School of Design in New York City, she launched the line our of her apartment. Working mostly with private clients for the first five years, Lela Rose garnered popular recognition after she designed the outfits worn by the Bush daughters to the 2001 Presidential inauguration. Soon after, Rose expanded her brand extensively to upscale retailers Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, and can now call Jessica Alba, Selma Blair, and the Olsen twins among famous clientele.

    This season, on the same day that the official Westminster Dog Show would later take place elsewhere in the city, Rose’s team transformed the space for the presentation into the “Roseminster Dog Show;” there was a white picket fence surrounding beautifully manicured astroturf, event announcers Jenna Bush and Robert Verdi on hand to provide witty and enjoyable commentary, in addition to judges, placards separating the looks into groups, and the final judge, Ms. Rose, herself. These three groups (“Non-Working Group,” “Ladies Who Lunch,” and “Cocktail Companions”) showcase three distinct groups of looks, all of which could fit comfortably in any of these groups. With necklines high and hems low, Rose’s silhouettes epitomized modesty and embraced all things feminine in soft, rich textiles. Boxy wool plaid coats, thick cable knit sweaters in caramels and hunter green hues, and an array of bright floral dresses appeared perfectly suited for the event. Delightful details, like a string of pearls along the collar of a red trouser/sweater coordinate, or the dachshund print silk ivory pantsuit, made for a charming collection that was as elegant as it was chic.

    And of course, the adorable dogs! As a self proclaimed dog lover, Rose featured some of the most in-demand talent in the industry: Riley Bean, of Instagram fame, was featured alongside professional show dogs and other famous pups. Beagles, Basset Hounds, Brittanys, and a variety of Spaniels, are just a few of the delightful breeds to have “walked” in the show, each complimenting the wide variety of offerings by the designer.

Debuting their collections at this show were brands XULY.Bët, Mimi Prober and Hogan McLaughlin.

Using colors of blue, orange, red and green, he mainly focused on creating well tailored suits for business women or someone wanting an eye grabbing piece. While adding other items like a series of one of a kind outerwear and puffer jackets, XULY.Bët had a one of a kind collection.

    Mimi Prober showed us a soft and feminine collection. Using see through lace with various patterns in all of her looks enhanced the models’ true beauty. Colors of black, white, soft mint, and a deep pink were chosen in natural earth tones. Luxurious black velvet was used for coats and was accented with lace details.

    Hogan McLaughlin used strong and primarily dominate, striking colors of black, gun metal and white. He mainly presented dresses with original cutouts. He gave great attention to details and the shaping of the garments. Frequently using zippers as a detail, this gave the collection an edgy look.

    Pam Hogg Autumn Winter 2019 during London Fashion Week
    In a spectacular display of provocateur, Pam Hogg delivered another iconic
    collection “Venus in Phurr” creating a line representing erotica, provocateur, dominance and sexuality. Playing with elements of BDSM culture and apparel through leather, mesh and whips, the collection was accentuated by Pam Hogg’s signature design technique of the unexpected, this year, the use of confident furs.

    Contrasting against the dominant garments, the collection also presented elements of compliance and submission, showcased through gentle colored military style suits, combinations of mesh, soft colored furs and delicate details creating an aura of sensual, innocence alongside the provocative garments of the collection. Combining the two concepts, a white leather, silver studded two piece stormed down the runway, featuring studs around the waistline and zipper of the trousers drawing a subtle hint of provocateur to the garment. With intricate studded patterns combined with leather, the notion was further accentuated. Drawing in the contrasting element of compliance, the white leather used for color representation, symbolized purity, the word ‘Innocence’ was also adorned on the back of the sleeveless, high neck,traditional style cape, sending a clear message to the audience of the secondary conflicting concept behind the collection.

    Celebrating the form of contemporary men and women, Pam Hogg’s collection subtly celebrates gender and sexuality for all with a collection designed to make any individual feel confident. Destroying any negativity through confident, dancing and strutting models showcasing a powerful collection, a positive message is clearly displayed through the line. Pushing the boundaries of contemporary fashion, Pam Hogg’s collection, a celebration of individuality, sexuality and the human body, forced the audience at Freemasons’ Hall to their own opinion, be that negative or positive, all attendees left with a reaction to the collection, a trend that seems apparent with Pam Hogg and the powerful impact left on her audience.
