“Follow your dreams, believe in yourself and don’t give up.” –Rachel Corrie– Found this word art at Serafina in Meatpacking! 

Alexander McQueen/ Saint Laurent

AMcQueen FW15 Collage

#PFW Alexander McQueen’s collection was inspired by the Victorian Age during the French revolution when the royal palace was changed into a prison. The symbolic rose begins as a tight bud opening into a lush bloom, and then eventually collapsing back onto itself in a gorgeous decay!

He was one of my fave designers and my fave looks…especially the pale lace dress with a black necklace/choker. My other favorite is the red lace embroidered gown adorned with trailing roses. Sarah Burton stated that the messy, pillowy big hair and pale makeup were styled to resemble faded roses with all its softness and gloom.

Saint Laurent FW15

Rock ‘n’ Roll, Edgy, and Hell on Wheels! Hedi Slimane, the innovative director for Saint Laurent, was inspired by the creative vision of a rebel girl. This season, Saint Laurent’s collection is all about rock stars and their groupies, complete with cigarette-printed pieces, black crayon eyeliner, red lips and leather. A real throwback to the times and fashion of the late Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen.

Collage of the Month: Sakura

Cherry Blossom Mood Board

My collage is entitled “Sakura,” the flowering cherry tree–the living and enduring symbol of friendship. Its blossoms are so delicate, graceful and lovely with diverse colors and shapes. I grew up in a suburb of Washington, D.C. and did not miss seeing the blossoms each spring. I was always in wonderment and awe as I walked along the Tidal Basin admiring the fragile, dainty flowers that last just a few weeks before gently fluttering to the ground. Its colors are so vast and range from nearly pure white, tinged with the palest pink to vibrant lavender and striking magenta. This year’s annual National Cherry Blossom Festival will be held over three weeks from March 20th through April 12th. You must visit this great springtime celebration and experience the blossom’s beauty, grace and elegance.
