Nicki Minaj × Vogue Arabia

Nicki Minaj Covers September Issue of Vogue Arabia.

A fully-fledged member of rap’s fashion royalty, Nicki Minaj, who has more than 90 million followers on Instagram, has returned following a hiatus of nearly four years to drop her fourth album, Queen. In this moment when the fashion industry discusses inclusivity, diversity, and equality, it was only fitting that the cover story was shot in New York, just a few days before the Met Gala, by an all female-team. Renowned photographer Emma Summerton was behind the lens, while the styling was done by Anna Katsanis and overseen by Vogue Arabia fashion director Katie Trotter. The hair and makeup looks were created by Kim Kimble and Sheika Daley respectively.

Behind the Seams at Paul Stuart: Javier Suarez

If you aren’t familiar with Paul Stuart, it is a men’s and women’s clothing brand based in New York City that was founded by Ralph Ostrove in 1938.

Behind the brand’s success is its most helpful team, that in which includes Javier Suarez.

Suarez, who is the Creative Director for men’s shoes and belts, was first appointed to position last August. With him, he’s brought several decades of experience, along with genuine relationships with key manufacturers for the industry in Italy and England.

He started his career with Bally of Switzerland and then Cole Haan, that in which soon led to him spending the next 27 years launching and growing the men’s shoe business of Salvatore Ferragamo.

He brings a unique and rare sense of style to shoemaking, especially in the current retail climate where quantity is unfortunately valued over quality.

What’s different that he does is that unlike larger footwear companies that rely on factory machines, Javier prefers the artisanal families that turn his work dream into reality.

“The strength of Italian production is the wealth of craftsmanship, the people and families that have been doing this forever,” Javier says.

As an expert in shoe design and making, he brings his talent to a comprehensive narrative to Paul Stuart.

“It’s a wardrobe of shoes: we carry the Paul Stuart customer from his work day to his weekend, and on to special formal occasions. It’s a complete collection of footwear with the same characteristics and quality craftsmanship the brand is so well known for in our tailored clothing,” he continues.

His inspiration on the new collection to was the evolution of the iconic nature of the Paul Stuart Style where the standard style were renewed to fit today’s tastes in fashion.
“Shapes, materials, and designs are kept classic but updated to keep up with a modern contemporary sensitivity,” he adds.

Javier’s absolute favorite styles from the collection are The Monaco and The Bandaccio. The Monaco is a brogue wedge sole suede oxford that works perfectly for work and play with super comfort and sharp style. As for the Bandaccio, it is a double buckle zippered combat boot that is handcrafted and has a hand custom polished bravura with “combat” ready Goodyear construction.

Javier believes that the direction in today’s men wear surrounds the idea of innovation–less formality and street wear. “We offer a wardrobe of shoes from casual sneakers to formal wear, keeping a keen eye on a Paul Stuart style sensitivity…it’s again more about the expectation and needs of the consumer than trends for the sake of trends,” he shares.

When asked about the collection and how it ties in with the apparel collection at Paul Stuart, Javier states that the collection connects with everything they do in apparel.

“Paul Stuart’s as a destination for fine tailoring now offers a complete range of innovative elegant and unique dress styles in a coordinated color palette. Antiqued calf, textured grain leathers and sophisticated suede colors compliment the use of texture and color in tailored clothing and sportswear,” he says.

Since 1938, Paul Stuart has been the leading arbiter of taste and style for luxury menswear and womenswear here in the U.S. Celebrating its 80th anniversary this year, the brand outstandingly continues to design and create an exclusive collection of men’s and women’s tailored clothing, sportswear, and accessories.

Quintessential Outfits To Lift Up Your Style Quotient

Shopping for clothes can be challenging. If you are a fashionista, then the pressure is even higher as you have to meet high expectations. Household chores, school or college, office and other engagements make it difficult to follow fashion trends. A cheat-sheet will come in handy to catch up with what all happened in the fashion world, while you were busy elsewhere. Here are some outfits which have made it to this year’s “must have” list.

Sequin top: Your savior
It is rather tiresome to dress up for a party after a long day at the office. In such cases, a sequin top is your ultimate companion. These sparkly tops need no added accessorizing. Off-shoulder, crop, tank or normal, there are a thousand designs to choose from. The sequins come in golden, silver, copper and other metallic hues. If you are wearing a short halter-neck or tank sequin top, layer it up with printed shrugs or jackets.

Belted trousers are a keeper
Ladies who need to wear pants on a daily basis know how comfortable cotton and linen trousers are. It becomes easy for women to create several looks with belted trousers. These are available in several designs, colors, and materials as well. Whether you are getting ready for another day at the office or have to attend a party, belted trousers will come to your rescue.

Green and white combo
Apart from outfits, you need to keep an eye open to identify which patterns are hot this season. If you don’t possess any short or A-like dress, skirt, jumpsuit, rompers or top that has green and white prints, then you are lagging behind in the fashion game. Subtle white print on a green background is in vogue.

Denim overalls and jumpsuits
Love denim? Who doesn’t right?! This summer, you must get your hands on a denim jumpsuit or overall. These are two styles, which are currently in fashion. Several fashion models and celebs have already been spotted in these attires. The color does not matter as long as the garment fits you correctly. These can be easily dressed up or down. They are suitable for casual and relaxed meetings.

Distresses acid-washed jeans
Speaking of denims, you must have a ton of ripped jeans in your wardrobe. If “yes” then good for you. If not, then you need purchase acid-washed distressed jeans ASAP. Make sure that it accentuates your curves. A jean will fail to serve its purpose if it does not fit the body correctly. These go well with all sorts of tops. Pair it with high boots to get a “high fashion” look.

Cargo printed pants and Ts
After their enormous success, cargo prints slowly faded. As nothing in fashion sector remains submerged for too long, cargos are all set to make a comeback with a bang. If you want to amph up your style quotient, then you must invest in a pair of cargo pants that actually fit. Gone are the days when these were only available in military green. Cargo printed trousers are available in several colors and styles as well. Cargo printed T-shirts will go well with this pant if you deliberately want to create a “print harmony.” Otherwise, cargo printed T-shirts will competent blue, black and grey pants as well.

The plastic trend is in high gear
While the entire world has joined hands to shun the use of plastic to stop environmental degradation, the fashion industry is experimenting with it to create new trends. Hollywood’s “bad girl” Rihanna has already made plastic see-through boots an instant hit. Now, it is time for plastic outfits to shine. Recently, see-through plastic jackets have been launched in the market. These are available in clear as well as colored variants. You can pick either buttoned jackets or zipper jacket. The see-through clear jackets will jazz up your style and will also highlight the top that you are wearing underneath. Opaque plastic skirts are also present in the market for those who wish to bring about a drastic change in their style statement.

Long “top n skirt” combo
Not all ladies are comfortable with skin show. It is not wise to show-up at formal events in mini-skirts and crop tops. In case you want to opt for something other than dresses or long gowns, then check out long top n skirt combos. Western designers have been influenced by long “kurtis” and “ghagra” which are traditional Indian outfits. These are jazzy numbers and are best reserved for special occasions. The long kurti comes with a flared skirt. These Kurtis have slits on both sides. Keeping in line with the Indian flavor, these “kurti n skirt” combos come in vibrant colors. They are made of rich fabrics and often are heavily embellished.

Don’t ignore accessorizing
Once you are done collecting all quintessential attires, which are expected to set the fashion circuit on fire in 2018, it is time to concentrate on your accessorize. All fantastic outfits must be supported with befitting accessories. Too many accessories will make the ensemble visually busy, while lack of it will make the outfit bland. Dressing is like whipping up a recipe. If you fail to add the right spices, your dish will not taste good. The look your desire to achieve is that dish, your attire is the main ingredient and accessories are the spices. You need not put on too many trinkets. Belts, shoes, bags, and scarves also fall in the accessory list. It is imperative that you pick right accessories to complement your outfit. None should outshine the other.

So, wait no more! Check out the fashion stores near you today. If you are too lazy to leave your couch, then log on to any online shopping site. Grab the best deals and revamp your wardrobe with these “must have” pieces today.

WWDMAGIC Announces Strategic Partnership With FashionGo

The two industry leaders forge a strategic alliance to better serve the fashion industry

WWDMAGIC, a subsidiary of UBM Fashion Group and the largest showcase of women’s apparel and accessories in the fashion industry, today announced a strategic partnership with online business-to-business fashion marketplace, NHN Global Inc., doing business as FashionGo.

“The fashion business is changing and we believe that together, WWDMAGIC and FashionGo as a whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” said Kelly Helfman, Vice President of WWDMAGIC. “Both WWDMAGIC and FashionGo are powerhouses in their own right; together we’ll be able to fully support the needs of our industry by playing off each other’s strengths. This partnership will give brands and buyers an enhanced experience that merges both Digital and B2B events.”

To kickoff this partnership, FashionGo will introduce “Kelly’s MAGIC Monday” on their site starting June 25th.

In addition to offering expertise to FashionGo’s active base of buyers, buyers will have immediate access to products highlighted – prioritizing the “see now, buy now” mentality.

“The partnership between WWDMAGIC and FashionGo allows each respective company to address the needs of their offline and online audiences,” said Daniel Lee, CEO of FashionGo. “A large part of the fashion business has shifted online but brands and buyers are increasingly feeling the need for an experience offline. This partnership will bring an omnichannel experience that has not yet been done in the fashion industry.”
