Martin's Saints

Just over was the Graduate Fashion Week, boosting tonnes of future competition and brilliant ideas that are fresh and very crisp.

Heir of the Versace family is fresh CSM graduate Francesca Versace, who had the largest collection of the night (needless to say.), was the spotlight of the night's glorious displays of new creations.
"Think sweet, full, off-the-shoulder mini dresses in tangerine and bright turquoise, sculpted jackets with duvet collars, a pink mini dress with a scoop neck that skimmed the model's bottom and lingerie-inspired lace dresses."

Valuable as hell she is. Ah. More rivalry in the fickle pickle market.

one of the many ruffles.

Devil Or Nothing.

I've finally finished the design portfolio for this semester and am crossing my fingers so much. That explains my disappearance which, I'm apologetic about. Nonetheless more posts will come soon i promise!

For now the most mention-worthy is the production of a movie from the all famous novel The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger, former assistant of one of the most powerful women in the fashion industry today, Anna Wintour, head ed of Vogue.

And apparently...

Sources say Wintour has been doing everything in her power to ensure the film version of The Devil Wears Prada fizzles—even threatening to blacklist some of the fashion world’s biggest names if they agree to do cameos.

When Wintour got wind that producers had been recruiting major designers for walk-on roles, sources close to the film say she unleashed a flurry of phone calls intimating to the aspiring thespians that they’d be persona non grata in the pages of her high-end glossy if they participated.

Most of the designers bowed out, we hear, with the notable exception of Valentino—who made good on his promised cameo despite having born the brunt of Wintour’s discontent. (A rep for Valentino said she was unable to comment on his partcipation in the film or the drama we hear it caused at his offices.)

Of course, it wouldn’t be the first time Wintour has used her perch to punish Hollywood for depicting her world in a less-than-flattering light. When esteemed director Robert Altman was filming his 1994 fashion-world satire Pret-a-Porter, Wintour teamed up with Fairchild Publications founder John Fairchild to wage war on the production, intimidating would-be walk-ons and banning their respective publications from the movie.

Asked about Wintour’s latest round of speed-dialing, Vogue spokesman Patrick O’Connell said, “That’s rubbish. No such phone calls were made. We presume that people will participate, and that’s their business. There will be no retribution if anyone does.” As for Wintour’s personal feelings about the film, in which Meryl Streep plays her as a vampire in $900 pumps, O’Connell said, “Anna’s happy about anything that supports fashion.”

Ah well. Looks like (allegedly) Valentino had more guts than anyone else on the row, packed with confidence that the fashion house would still sell as well without this major glossy and its missus.
Can't wait for the movie screening.

Laratella Love

The Laratella bag is like a perfect little piece of french pastry with pretty ruching and lush details. This ivory raffia bag is such a joy to even look at, and the front flap somehow reminds me alot of the Fendi Spy Bag. Absolutely adore the gold mesh knot detail.
