Sat, 03 Dec 2011 14:11:00 +0000

fashion show runway dresses ! The Spring 2011 collections mark a significant collection for designers because it doesn't just mark the beginning of a new year, but also that of a new decade. Expect to see bolder designs and a little more extravagance than years past as the economy shows signs of slow recovery. The seventies and sixties-inspired fashion still reigns on the runways, with Mad Men-inspired dresses and Studio 64-esque glitzy metallics still showing on the runways. Maxi dresses remain a trend and some designers are sending sheer maxis down the runways for a fresh twist on a current modern fashion staple.We can't talk about dresses without mentioning the work of Diane von Furstenberg, creator of the iconic wrap dress. Furstenberg's spring collection features larger-than-life prints and bright colors like violet, lemon, and turquoise. Her dresses shied away from the maxi dress length and generally fell to mid-calf. Embracing the current return of seventies glam, Furstenberg's shimmery gold dress was beautiful and exquisitely draped. To mimic Furstenberg's spring Grecian-inspired collection, go with a draped dress in a bold color and pair it with simple styling and strapped sandles. fashion show runway dresses ! As usual, Betsey Johnson's collection was one of the most whimsical collections to hit the catwalk this spring. Betsey's theme this season was "cyclists," but don't let that fool you into thinking she sent nothing but bike shorts down the runway. The season was beautifully retro-inspired, with tons of flouncy 50's and 60's skirts that would narrow any waistline. fashion show runway dresses ! The collection also held some classy mermaid dresses that looked straight out of a film noir movie. While most of the Betsey Johnson collection held more colors than a neon rainbow, the collection also held some sheer all-black pieces, including a sexy showstopping lace dress that revealed the model's black lingerie; it was bold and a little risque, but beautiful all the same. If you're unafraid to show a little skin this spring, look for sheer black lace dresses in order to mimic this head-turning fashion trend. For a sweeter look, search for a Navy-inspired dress like the ones Betsey Johnson showed this spring; the sexy and short sailor dresses looked straight out of a 40's pin-up calendar. fashion show runway dresses ! Marc Jacobs bypassed the whimsy of the 50's and 60's and went straight for the glitz and glamor of the 70's. His collection featured long flared pants, halters, frizzy long hair, and oversized hats. Jacobs' color palette was an eclectic mix of plums, mustards, mauves, and oranges. Like many other designers this season, Jacobs also sent several gold metallic pieces down the runway. To mimic Jacobs' celebrated collection, look for 70's inspired halter dresses with plenty of flow and mix them up with carefully selected over-the-top accessories. Think large hats and sparkling pendants. Plunging necklines are another great way to show off fashion's newfound 70's aesthetic. For a showstopping spring 2011 look, hunt for gold metallic dresses and pair it with some 70's-inspired dramatic eye makeup. [...]

fashion show runway design ! The runways of NY Fashion Week are the pinnacle of all things glamorous and can turn fashion designers into industry darlings. However, it is also a very costly production and may not be the best place for a new designer to launch their line. As much as I love, love, love seeing shows during Fashion Week, I don't recommend that new designers spend that kind of money to get their designs seen so early in their careers. This post will give you ideas for alternative ways to showcase your fashion line during Fashion Week (or any time of year!). fashion show runway design ! Putting together a Fashion Week runway show can be very expensive. It costs at least $30k to show at NY Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. You need to have proper funding to pay for the: space, models, hair, makeup, set design, lighting, photographers, videographers, plus the cost of your actual designs, among other things. In my opinion, new designers shouldn't be doing runways shows until they are making enough money to sustain normal business activities plus the cost of putting together a Fashion Week Runway Shows. fashion show runway design ! Fashion Week Runway Shows are the best platform for established leaders in fashion innovation. There are over 100 shows in NY during Fashion Week and it's hard for Fashion Editors and Buyers to make it to all of the well-known designer runway shows. If you are able to hold your fashion event close to where the actual runway shows are taking place, it makes it easier for editors and buyers to stop in and attend. fashion show runway design ! Wherever you decide to have your fashion show, be sure to have someone videotape it so you can post it on your website and blog (and so the fashion bloggers can do the same thing for you!). Live video-streaming is also an excellent option for your fans and clients who live out of town but still want to support you and "be a part" of your fashion show!Here are a few ideas that can be used for a more cost-effective fashion presentation:1. Do a fashion installation in a hotel suite. You can have models standing in the room that's put together like a chic fashion shoot set wearing your most exciting and show-stopping designs for editors and buyers to walk around and see.2. Throw a cocktail party at a popular local lounge that features a few models in your designs to launch your line. You can invite lots of friends, family, buyers, bloggers, local boutique owners and press to attend and you will also have some of the location's regular foot traffic to rely on.3. Are you an early-bird? Consider hosting a small invite-only breakfast buffet at a cute local restaurant where you can do a fashion show. Both women and men love free food and the fact that it comes with entertainment (your fashion show) is an added bonus for them!4. Is there a great neighborhood garden, park or local museum that you could negotiate using as a space to showcase your designs?5. Many colleges have fashion shows, especially around homecoming time. Could this be another way for you to get your designs seen? [...]

fashion show models! fashion show models! A fashion show is an event put on by a fashion designer to showcase his or her upcoming line of clothing. The first American fashion show likely took place in 1903 in the New York City store Ehrlich Brothers. American retailers imported the concept of the fashion show in the early 1900s.FashionFeaturing runway garments from the spring and fall/winter collections of ten influential couturiers and designers, the exhibition explores the ideas and inspirations motivating Paris fashion today, and why, in an age of globalization and instantaneous communication, this venerable city remains the fashion capital. The city has been a magnet for stylish men and women since the seventeenth century, but the French fashion industry has evolved considerably over the centuries and never more than in the last few years. fashion show models! Recent assessments of the current state of Paris fashion have varied widely, with some pundits announcing its death, and others claiming that it is closer to fine art than ever before. By using fashion, a medium which has always been associated with self-expression and personal identity, these designers seek to demonstrate how the use (or misuse) of technology and its modes of production have the power to stimulate, delight, and inspire in ways as yet untapped in the fashion world. In the 1800s, "fashion parades" periodically took place in Paris couture salons. fashion show models! The first American fashion show likely took place in 1903 in the New York City store Ehrlich Brothers. By 1910, large department stores such as Wanamaker's in New York City and Philadelphia were also staging fashion shows. By the 1920s, retailers across the United States held fashion shows. In the 1970s and 1980s, American designers began to hold their own fashion shows in private spaces apart from such retailers.ModelsModels in a fashion show have to change their clothes all the time to present new items to the public. Models are supposed to influence us in a positive way. Models strutting catwalks at London Fashion Week should provide a certificate attesting their good health, but there should be no outright ban on wafer-thin women, the British Fashion Council said on Friday. Spain and Italy have recommended banning models with a body mass index (BMI) of less than 18. "We favor the alternative approach of promoting good health based on medical assessments of models participating in London Fashion Week," it said. fashion show models! The report acknowledged there was a problem with eating disorders among models and recommended a health education and awareness programme should be set up urgently. "During the investigation, evidence of the vulnerability of women in the modeling progression was startling and models are at high risk of eating disorders," said Denise Kingsmill, chair of the inquiry.In a typical fashion show, models walk the runway dressed in the clothing created by the designer. Because the topic of fashion shows remains to find its historian, the earliest history of fashion shows remains obscure. Too many adolescent girls decide early on that they need to be "thin" like the models in order to be "pretty" when really they just need to keep themselves healthy. [...]

fashion show! Photographing a fashion show is a lot of fun but there are steps to follow before you get on the riser and join the rest of the press photographers.First and foremost, you want to make sure you've identified the event, and by this I mean research as to what typically takes place at the event you will be covering. Perhaps a place to start is the event's website. Images from previous events host by the same title in previous years or events hosted by the same production company. This will help you formulate an idea for how things will go that day. Needless to say, there are times where all preparation goes down the drain and you must improvise on the spot.Once you've gathered as much information about the event and, if you are lucky, have gotten some glances as to what is to come you may want to start selecting the gear you will be using for the event. This will take multiple determining factors such as lighting, distance, speed, and post production needs. funny thanksgiving cartoons! It is typical that Fashion Shows are at night, yet their main purpose is to showcase a line of clothes. Most of the time designers choose a very well lit venue or location to showcase their garments and "most of the time" there is no need for an added flash. A hot shoe flash unit is helpful for the coverage of the event where the models are getting ready (make up and dressing up, etc.).Be sure that if time is permitted to cover the "getting ready" portion of the event you have allotted enough time to return and secure a favorable spot on the riser. There are times where the space on the Press/Media riser is limited and overload of photographers or cameramen are forced to move to less desirable areas where direct sight is limited or impossible. funny thanksgiving cartoons! On the riser space, once again, is limited and most people that secure a spot are strong about protecting their territory. Be respectful and courteous to others line of sight.For fashion shows it is important to achieve the best "white balance" possible. If a fashion show is coordinated by a seasoned production company, there will be a press conference where designers will meet and greet the press. This segment wasn't just designed to meet and greet the designers but also to make sure lighting scenarios are tested and a "while balance card" is displayed for photographers to adjust their gear accordingly. funny thanksgiving cartoons! Once the show starts, I typically adjust my camera settings to approximately: f.5.6-7.0 1/250 at about 800-1600 ISO. I tend to shoot fashion shows at JPEG + Raw in order to de-mark and process images quicker. The final selection will make it to my clients in high-res. The rest is eliminated. I tend to make any image selection during the show because I simply can't trust a 3.5inch screen, I rather see everything from a monitor.As a marketing tool, I upload my images over to Facebook and share them with the models, designers, production company. I watermark them for copyright protection and allow them to purchase the images they like.I hope this brief article is helpful to those interested in Fashion Show Photography. If you have any questions I may be contacted via Facebook. [...]
