With the first Fashionable Istanbul by Avea, that has been organised by the partnership of Baykam & RBM from Turkey and IMG, the creator of “Fashion Week” events, Istanbul successfully managed to be one of the world’s fashion capitals.
Having had 5 fashion giants and entered into the world fashion calendar with a superb show, Fashionable Istanbul by Avea was at the heart of the fashion world during 3 days. In the event taking place between 23 and 25 October 2009 there was an amazing excitement as amongst other prestigious fashion weeks such as London, Milan, Paris, Berlin…
Fashionable Istanbul by Avea which welcomed important guests from the fashion and business world attracted attention of the fashion world by the participation of the international press.
Fashionable Istanbul : now the countdown begins…June 2010.
Last month, during my visit to New York City for Fashion Week I was given a great chance to interview fashion designer Chris Benz.
In this interview Chris talks to me about how he is relatively relaxed minutes before the debut of his Spring 2010 collection. The inspiration for his designs. Why fashion design was the right thing for him. His personal style. And future plans.
I can’t get over how nice and cool Chris Benz was to chat with, and how original his collection was!
JOSEPH DOMINGO reveals “SKIN”, a daring and exciting collection for Spring/Summer 2009, at Mercedes-Benz Los Angeles Fashion Week. His show is scheduled to march down the runway at 6PM Tuesday October 14, at Stage One of Smashbox Studios, Culver City, CA.
The show features the San Francisco-based designer’s progressive exploration into the feminine mystique. Often catering to the well-heeled set and glamorous women in rarefied entertainment and fashion circles, Joseph Domingo is set to showcase head-turning pieces that confidently tease between what one shows and what is kept hidden. “It’s not about being overtly sexy but being sensuous,” he points out. “For example, a bare shoulder can often be more alluring than being completely naked. It’s about the promise of possibilities.” The concept hinges on the art of seduction as personified by Joseph’s muse of the moment, the Greek goddess of love herself – Aphrodite – and by women across the ages who knew exactly how much to unveil and how much to hold back.
