    Scandinavian International Fashion Week Gala
    The Fashion Gala was about to start at Vau De Ville, an elegant restaurant at the very heart of Stockholm, not far from the glittering waters of the Baltic Sea and the major shopping centres.

    The fashionable crews from Stockholm were mixing with the international bloggers, the models, the guests from the Ukrainian and Moroccan embassies and the international designers who amazed us yesterday at the catwalks with their fantastic outfits: Sonja Andersson, fashion designer and Scandinavian International Fashion Week´s CEO, the Moroccan fashion designer Karima Lalla El Alaoui, the Swedish fashion designer Alicja Eklöw, founder of Aspera Collection, the Ukrainian fashion designer Ruslan Khvastov, the Angolan fashion designer Iracema Matias founder of Regarde Moi Couture, the Portuguese fashion designers Carlos Medeiros and Elsa Gonçalves founders of Oficina do Burel, Noor Thandi Modise, the designer behind the South African brand Oscar & Rose and the Colombian fashion designer Zulema Murillo, creator of Zumi Marbella.

    The hosts were marketing expert Stefan Engeseth, and stand-up comedian, Sofia Nordgren, amazing in her embellished mermaid dress and charming fancy eyelashes extensions. Sonja Anderson was wearing one of her haute-couture creations, a strapless ball dress with a floral motif and fashion designer Karima El Alaoui was shining in a pink Moroccan Takchita. Iracema Matias just looked like a model in her very chic structured dress in mixed fabrics and Elsa Gonçalves was very pretty in her blue dress, matching eyes and matching earrings plus a warm cape in Burel.

    As for the guys, as President Barrack Obama once put it … nobody really cares about how they are dressed … just kidding, of course Ruslan Khvastov was extremely elegant in his suit and has for once gotten rid of his, I dare say, distinctive newsboy hat and Carlos Medeiros was as fashionable as usual in his well-tailored dark suit. And obviously all the guests were looking very fancy in their gala outfits. People mingled and drank champagne. Toast Skagen, a classic Swedish shrimp-based starter, was served while the music created a charming atmosphere.

    And then it was time for the awards! The award for best designer 2019 went to Karima El Alaoui and Ruslan Khvastov ex-aequo. The award for emerging talent 2019 went to Iracema Matias. The celebration by the fashion designers and their distinguished friends was full of enthusiasm. But it was not only about the fashion designers and the dresses. It was also about the fabulous models that we saw yesterday on the catwalks at Stockholm City Hall and the make-artists who made them even more fabulous. The award for best make-up artist 2019 went to Samavi Khan. The award for best male model 2019 went to Janek Dubov and Djibril Varore ex-aequo while the award for best female model 2019 went to Isabell Tinred and Fatima El Alaoui ex-aequo. The music kept on playing and the crystal pieces by Orreförs glittered under the late Swedish evening light. What to say: life is glamorous and beautiful when flouncing around in a gala dress and a glass of champagne in your hand.

    Designs Influenced by Paul Poiret’s Japanese-Inspired Silhouette at Cushnie Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
    Carly Cushnie, famed for creating beautifully crafted designs that flatter the curves of a woman’s body. These looks enticed us with her recent collection inspired by French master couturier, Paul Poiret’s 20th-century Japanese-inspired silhouettes. She also took inspiration from the Japanese art of floral arrangements. Forming angular shapes, and geometric folds inspired by artist Nicola Kloosterman’s Shadowplay collage series. She chose to design this elegant Japanese-inspired collection in decadent navy, burgundy, blue, and purple hues.

    She kept her signature aesthetic of feminine, clean lines, emphasizing on the shape, and form. Hints of boldness were articulated in forms of Japanese-inspired floral print embroidery, artful draping and folds to create pleated shoulder, asymmetrical neckline, and fringed details. The runway looks consisted of exquisitely constructed tops, jackets, trousers, jumpsuits, and skirts in luxurious satin and velvet fabrics.

    This well-tailored collection, with its intricate use of handcrafted techniques, could only be expected of Cushnie.

    Afffair Spring Summer 2019 during New York Fashion Week
    Showing on the last day of fashion week was one of our favorite brands, Afffair. Quickly rising to the top as a preferred choice for celebrities and on the red carpet, designer Rufat Ismayel, creator of Afffair, brought a glamorous vision for this season and the brand. Born in Baku, Azerbaijan, Ismayel got his start by modeling for fashion houses as a teenager. He modeled for top brands like Paco Rabanne and Valentine Yudashkin. Then he realized he wanted to make a shift and create his own fashion brand and designs. Moving to Istanbul, he launched Afffair. Ismayel manages everything from design to factory garment production.

    Jeweled details and elegant evening gowns are some of the features that make this collection so luxurious. Most pieces shown this season were dresses except for the occasional jumper, pants, shorts, skirt, and tops. Colors used in the collection were green, gold, and black. Materials noticed included organza, satin, velvet, and chiffon. The collection used opaque materials, and played with the use of skin which added sexy and mysterious vibes. A few of the looks were styled with a headband that complimented the collection.

    Concept Korea Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
    The very idea of Concept Korea is a fascinating one: a government-sponsored fashion collective developed to promote a burgeoning crop of talented Korean designers on a global platform. This season, breakthrough brands IISE and LIE each brought exciting, though very different, aesthetics to the world at NYFW.

    LIE opened with a strong offering from designer Chungchung Lee, who delivered a relaxed, dynamic line of feminine daywear to the runway. A visually complex line with layers of contrasting textures, harsh patterns, and experimental textile combinations, Lee’s design aesthetic was unfamiliar, but altogether very desirable. Look-after-look demanded attention and conjured a sense of luxury and wealth: the mid-collection ensemble of wool plaid trousers and a leopard print jacket, both paired with a clashing midi blouse constructed of plaid, matching leopard print, and lace. Lee is an exciting young designer able to actualize his experimental vision and deliver it earnestly on the runway; LIE invokes curiosity and is very promising.

    Helmed by design duo (and brothers) Terrence and Kevin Kim, IISE closed the collective with the intriguing and aptly titled collection, “Protest,” featuring 20 handpicked models of different races, looks, and attitudes. Constructed of materials sourced solely from their home city of Seoul, Protest offered an authentic, surprisingly emotive collection of streetwear designs. Several strong looks in head-to-toe black opened, notably a layered, sleek ensemble of sheer stockings, bicycle shorts, and a nicely tailored vinyl zip-up under a simple, utilitarian jacket. With each look more color was introduced until the complete absence of black was palpable: the intricately patterned and designed pastel blue poncho and trouser set brought a daring authenticity that was all in the details, how it created space and movement down the runway. IISE’s first NYFW offering was spirited and unique, an exploration of a global city’s history and how that narrative might illuminate its future.

    70’s Glam Rock Influences at Hakan Akkaya Fall Winter 2019 during New York Fashion Week
    One of the top shows of the season was from a designer we had not seen before. Istanbul designer Hakan Akkaya’s Fall Winter 2019 Collection proves that 70’s glam rock is back in fashion! The collection had both male and female models walking in the show. The looks and central theme of the collection heavily focused on glamorous punk rock styles influenced by 70’s rock stars icons like David Bowie, Joan Jett, and Billy Idol.

    The rock-glam collection is made to be worn on the big stage as only performers can pull off the blinding shimmers, over sized shoulder pads, sequins decorated with spike and studded details as seen on these pieces. Edgy looks comprised of sparkling bell-bottom pants, pantsuits, bodysuits, dresses, skirts, jackets, fur, and puff coats were some of the pieces we saw. The color palette used consisted of silver, gold, pink and black metallic shades, solid black was used as a staple throughout the collection. Prints like leopard, zebra, pinstripes, checkerboard, and glitter were used. A few of the pieces were embellished with a lightning bolt which added to the 70’s theme.

    These modernized retro-glam outfits which screamed fun vibes would be perfect on celebrities like Lady Gaga or Jennifer Lopez at their concert performances!
