Designer to Watch: Pierre Garroudi

London Fashion Week 5519 saw the arrival of Pierre Garroudi’s Spectacular Fashion Show: a high-octacaine, glamorous, and unique mardi gras of style, creativity, and fun.

On Sunday the 16th of September at 9 PM, The Strand Palace Hotel played host to Garroudi’s riot of colour and exuberance, seeing his vision come to life on the catwalk. Distinctiveness made up the foundation of this show with a diverse cast of models, each dressed and styles uniquely, shunning the industry standard of uniformity.
“Outrageousness is in, get ready and dress up!” is the way designer Pierre Garroudi explained his show made up of 50 looks in total. Key looks from the show included a baby pink, lace, “show girl” outfit, complete with tulle boa, with the model using a children’s doll to cover her modesty, a ringmaster-esque outfit which saw hot-pants teamed with a copped-striped jacket and a show stopping head piece topped with a golden deer to DEMAND attention.

Other notable outfits included a cutesy ‘holiday’ look comprised of a ditsy floral mini-dress with peach sequin detailing matched with an oversized straw sunhat and completed with a pair of sky-high studded stiletto Mary-Janes. Perhaps one of the most eccentric of al the looks was dominated by a hat made from a child’s doll towering on the model’s head. This was matched with a  shoe necklace and belts tied around her ankles, making for a truly eclectric outfit which left Garroudi’s audience curious about his inspiration as well as desperate for an encore of his ‘circus of style.’

Each outfit was styled with one of Garroudi’s famous leather handbags, an accessory the designer is well known and loved for. Pink, blue and gold acted as the main color pallet, but certainly didn’t limit his use of other shades. Hair and make-up only added to the beautiful chaos of Garroudi’s fashion performances taking theatrical make-up to new levels , leaving any sign of minimalism truly outside the doors of the hotel.

Want to get to know the designer?

Now based in London, Pierre Garroudi was founded in New York City 1993. Garroudi is formerly known for mastering the techniques of draping and his attention to fabrication, shape, and detail. His design inspirations derived from futuristic elements experimenting with new shapes and fabric manipulations–appealing to those who are interested in the aesthetics of a futuristic world. With 12 collections, Pierre Garroudi has showcased at fashion weeks in New York, Paris, and London. His international experience enabled him to become more creative and original.

Cynthia Rowley Spring 2019 Show

Who: Cynthia Rowley, Bill Powers, Kit Keenan, Whitney Port, Ashley Tisdale, Rachel Feinstein, Sofia Wylie, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Timo Weiland, Madison Grace, Laura Marano, Rachelle Hruska MacPherson, Sophie Macks, Natalie Suarez, Anna Moon, Caroline Lowe and Addison Riecke

What: Designer Cynthia Rowley showcased the Spring 2019 collection with a collective of freestyle dance skaters.

Where: Cynthia Rowley Showroom, 16 Morton Street, New York City
Why: To unveil the Cynthia Rowley Spring 2019 collection, the brand hosted an experiential show featuring a collective of freestyle dance skaters.

Collection Statement: We shot our lookbook against an out-of-this-world backdrop. There’s nothing more magical than a full moon…the glow of the moon against soft metallics, the weightlessness of a ruffled dress. If you asked me when I was kid what I wanted to be when I grew up, fashion was light years from my mind. I wanted to be an astronaut – the ultimate adventure.

I’ve always thought one theme, one inspiration was an antiquated idea. Why limit yourself? Fashion should have no boundaries and when you wear the clothes they should never hold you back from any experience.
There’s been a lot of talk recently about the underrepresentation of women in fashion leadership roles. This is something that has always been important to me. These are cool, fearless women – strong, talented athletes following their passion…that’s real inspiration to me. Let’s roll

Subterranei

22-YEAR-OLD PARSONS STUDENT, ALINA TSYGANOVA MADE HER NYFW DEBUT PRESENTING THE SUBTERRANEI SS19 COLLECTION TODAY, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10th, AT STORE FRONT AND ARCHITECTURE. THE COLLECTION ACTED AS A PIECE OF INSTALLATION ART IN THE SPACE. VIP ATTENDEES INCLUDED HERON PRESTON, MODEL MARINA LINCHUK, MODEL SHARINA GUTIERREZ, AND STYLIST ANYA ZIOUROVA.

The Moscow born designer was inspired by the concept of self-protection and defending ones true self from penetrations of the outside world. The central theme of the collection is what one might call the “voice of the streets” and the desire to address the quotidian struggle of mankind with oneself and with its external pressures. “At War” – with yourself, with reality – is intended less as a political slogan and more as a description of the internal state within us all – our daily need to protest and resist our realities. Similarly, the main slogan – “STAY PROTECTED” – offers a stark reminder of the everyday necessity of self-defense, calling on us to always remain “protected” (a phrase that carries with it the additional connotations of HIV and gay rights.)

As for the style, these objects feature strong, clean, and angular silhouettes with a “battle-ready” character. The collection maintains a dominant palette of black tones diluted by Bordeaux and creamy white to facilitate a structure of concise uniformity. Her designs come to life with utilitarian fabrics to nod at the notion that we must always be at war with the forces that attempt to force us change from our truest self. She uses Latex as nod to a second skin, thinking of these garments as a form of self-protection from the outside world. Alina also taps her fine arts with the collection’s centerpiece, a while cotton suit, consisting of a mini skirt and a loosely fitted jacket, hand-branded by the designer with aerosol spray cans to imitate street graffiti. Slogans like “At War” and “Stay Protected” emblaze pieces from the collection – reminding us to be in touch with the truest version of ourselves.

Alina created a conceptual installation in the space that plays on this theme. The models interacted with the installed concrete blocks that were inspired by images of derelict remnants of urbanization and industrial landscapes; the fading echoes of street art and graffiti; and the romanticized depiction of cold concrete and brutalist architecture.

Ralph Lauren 50th Anniversary

On the second day of New York Fashion week, celebrities and fashion elite came together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ralph Lauren.

The American fashion house marked its half century by hosting a fashion show and gala dinner seamlessly integrated against the backdrop of the Bethesda Terrace fountain in Manhattan’s Central Park, a homage to Mr Lauren’s hometown of New York City.

In keeping with the philanthropy of the brand, the event benefited the Central Park Conservancy – a private, nonprofit organisation that relies on donations to prevent the decline of the world-renowned park.

Mr Lauren initially launched his eponymous label in 1967 aged 28. The lifestyle brand began as a collection of men’s ties, before developing into the first ‘Polo’ menswear collection in 1968. Womenswear was introduced in the 1970s. Today, the designer still acts as chief creative officer at the brand.

Content includes interviews and GVs with guests David Lauren, Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively, Steven Spielberg, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to name a few and is available free of copyright and free of charge.

Cannabis took over the red carpet at this past weekend’s iHeartRadio VVMA’s! Canadian pop star, Rosette Luve strolled the red carpet wearing an iconic cannabis-inspired dress created by Canadian designer, Jason Matlo for the Weekend Unlimited, a Vancouver-based cannabis brand.

This “smoking hot” dress was specially designed to celebrate the country’s upcoming entry into the legal cannabis market in October! Rosette, who was at the event to promote her own chart single, Single for the Summer, and her dress caught the eyes of a number of other pop artists including Alessia Cara, Bebe Rexha and Shawn Mendes to name a few.

According to the designer, Jason Matlo, “Having the opportunity to design this bespoke version of The Weekend Unlimited dress for Rosette Luve to walk the red carpet of the MMVA’s in Toronto was very exciting. This first design allowed me to merge my background and love of couture with a young, high style street look. The entire process has been very energizing. I will be working creatively on developing a range of products for the Premiere Global Lifestyle brand, Weekend Unlimited Live International.”
