Richard Blayne – Seattle Fashion Week

April 26, 2009

 

 Blayne Walsh, contestant on Project Runway 5 unveiled his Fall/Winter 2009 on the final day of Seattle Fashion Week. 

The resulting motif = Tribe of Blayne.  

 

Blayne Quotes:

“urban but not overdone” 

“modern street wear in very bright colors”

  “neon for life”  

 

 

“Aside from Naomi B. and Blaine Walsh, most of the collections lacked a vision or focus.” 

A quote taken from the Seattle PI columist Stacy Lucier – see link for a summation of her impressions and thoughts of Seattle Fashion Week. 

 That wraps up SFW09.   

Overall I agree with Ms. Lucier & her disposition on the overall legitimacy of SFW–sorry guys

Architecture Meets Fashion

March 26, 2009

Neil Barrett 

Coming from a British heritage of master tailors, Barrett was introduced to the art of fashion at an early age.  After a master degree in mens fashion he worked for Italian giant Gucci, Prada & even had a collaboration with Puma.  

In 1999 Barrett launched his self-named label and in 2006 this amazing store was opened in Minato-ku, Tokyo Japan.  I think there are strong coorelations between fashion & design.  Everything from the design lines, inspirations and philosophy –

“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”   –   Coco Chanel 

Flagship store in Tokyo, Japan.

Architecture design by Zaha Hadid Architects

A few selections, from his label described as:    “his signature style stems from his reworking of iconic men’s wear details and fit.  The product’s broad appeal lies in Neils ability to combine timeless quality, wearability and fashion trend.”

International Designer Showcase

 

Country/Designer:  Australia, Brisbane born designer,  Joshua Scacheri

SUBFUSCO, translated from Latin means deviated colour.  Scacheri, who pursured futbol in Italy fell in love with the elegance of Italian & European  fashion. 

Romeo’s closet is a visual & textile pursuit of a ‘modern take of the romantic tale of Romeo and Juliet.  It poses the question of what the contemporary Romeo would look like and more importantly what he would wear?’  His menswear consists of unique, bold, well made & tailored garmets that engage personal style.  His designs are inspired by the mixture of everday life, personalities, natural talents and cultures.
