About Me
I am currently a student at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, California. To me, fashion is life, everything I see in some way relates to fashion, but fashion is a very sucjective definition to me; everyone has a different idea of fashion and should be respected. I hope to one da work for a forecasting company. I am fascinated with the fact that all aspects of our being our pulled together to develope trend predictions that are based upon our lifestyles and cultural influences.
Fashion Industry Experience
I am currently interning at a design studio; which i love.
Favorite Fashion Designer or Fashion Brand
Coco Chanel and of course Marc Jacobs, I think he is brilliant and relate to his creative process.
Over 18
What is hot in fashion this year?
To state what is hot in fashion this year is a very complex statement. I believe that fashion evolves everyday, every time someone is inspired by what they see and is courageous to create something knew changes fashion. SO to answer the question, I feel as though it simply cannot be answered in the form of a general statement becuase in my reality fashion is far from general.

The Oh So Dreaded, But May Become Wonderful Length

Posted on October 25, 2010 at 12:14pm 0 Comments came out with their "Ten Ways to Freshen Up Your Wardrobe Come Spring", written by Nicole Phelps, to put potentially arising trends into focus. The title of this look is what first caught my attention as it was, "The New Length" and immediately, when I see the word new, I am captured. As I continued to read the description, the new length was again referred to as a challenging length for woman, which could quickly turn a majority of women away…


Manly Style

Took a picture of my neighbor who looked shockingly sharp with his red and blue pinstripe, left untucked, and his subtle shoes for a casual yet classy look.

FREE CITY goes Hollywood!

Posted on October 22, 2010 at 1:03pm 0 Comments

Free City opened their new Supermat store in Hollywood, Ca on Highland. Creativity is an understatement when defining their idea and creation of brick and mortar retailing. Art creates their atmosphere making the merchandise only part of the reason to walk in. Not only is this brilliant in attracting your target market during an economic crisis, but also in the sense that it provides an experience for shoppers. They…


TREND: Are you SUITable for a 3some?

Posted on October 22, 2010 at 12:41am 0 Comments

Not only have woman began to dress the part of a lady, but now have simultaneously been able to wear the pants in the relationship as well. As Marc Jacobs introduced the 3 piece suit in his Fall 2010 line, the ensemble has made its comeback. Just because more woman are continuing to go back to work, does not mean they can't look fabulous while doing…


Crystal Renn Controls Traffic on 3 Paris Runways, including the "anti-plus sized Karl Lagerfeld Runway"

Posted on October 7, 2010 at 4:39pm 0 Comments

Crystal Renn, a size 10 model, who once had been photoshopped to ensure that her body was not present in the Chanel ad for its 2010 Soho opening, now proves she will not take a hit without hitting back when she walks down the Chanel runway during Paris Fashion Weeks 2010. Renn, who has overcome her own eating disorder, knows…


TREND: What Woman REALY ARE; Levi's begin to show us!

Posted on October 7, 2010 at 4:10pm 1 Comment

The line as been crossed. Either you are accepting of the fact that most, not all, but most models are too thin, that girls pick apart their bodies because they may have shape and are not a straight line, and that the view on what makes a woman a woman has been skewed because we are all striving to look like 10 year old boys. The extreme diets and in some cases eating disorders are all trying…


TREND: Jailhouse Rock X 2

Posted on October 5, 2010 at 12:30pm 1 Comment

The previews of Spring 2011 continue to anticipate us for the future season. The runway for me is one of my most influential inspirations. Show after show I pick and choose what I think will conquer the fashion market. Prophetical designers such as Prada, etc. guide the way into future trends that are one step ahead of even some of the other 2011 designers. For…


The Past Remains So Present

Posted on October 1, 2010 at 2:25am 0 Comments

As the fabulous and wonderful celebrates their 10th anniversary, they brought the 10 biggest headlines in fashion, as well as other 10 tens from the past decade. Luisel Ramos, in 2006 unfortunately became one of these headlines after dying of a heart attack while weighing less than 100 lbs. It was because of this that questions regarding the serious health issue effecting models were raised. Reconsideration started to take place, but a complete…

Hello Lauren: thank you for visiting my blog.
i believe that the industry has got to turn away from the restrictive size 0, and finally it seems to be happening.
fall 2010 is gearing up for a very feminine, well groomed return to lady like looks.
Of course the entire silhouette has changed, and accessories and hair will follow.
i really would like to see models look healthier again.

about a year ago, walking on 7th avenue, i saw a young model with a portfolio,
obviously on her way to appointments.
she was so painfully thin.
no exageration, her thigh was the size of my forearm.
yes, we all have different body types, but there is natural body type and extreme dieted body type. i think also to turn things around the industry will recognise and change it, which will boost sales at the retail level.
best wishes,
