Street Style Mingled With Runway (prt 1)

At times I see something on the runway that is purely art and therefore, inspirational.  I look at the different ways that particular forms, of fabric, are constructed.  It gives texture, shape, and form that can be used as a basis for creating my own items of clothing.  So in essence, it is possible to see runway fashion as art inspirations for wearable forms. I took a search to some great street inspirations and some runway looks that could create unique pieces. Take a look and let me know what you think. Street style continued tomorrow:

Lacoste fashionable, yet comfortable, sweater dress is a refreshing splash of color:

I like that the red tone is so magnetic without being overwhelming. The boots, dropped neckline….so global.

Vintage velvet and modern footwear. Standout outfit.

City chic look with vintage velvet. Pair it up with boots and leggings.

Ralph Lauren gets a nod for pure classics. Sexy hunter meets sophisticated woman.

Naeem Kahn is total true art. Whoever thought of a cropped motorcycle jacket, lots of accesories, and, the little black dress. Brilliant.

Naeem Kahn takes the punk and makes it glamour!

Tommy Hilfiger made layers more youthful and great for the shape.

Ronson pairs a great man pant with structured mixes to create a new outfit that is wearable and sophisticated.

Hot Coutures on the Runway

What’s hawt right now? I’m seeing satin prints, liquid leggins, I’m seeing everyday apparel that any woman can wear, I’m also seeing a couture trend towards wearable pieces.

First up, Christian Siriano, winner of last years Project Runway is truly a talent to watch out for. His signature look is compromised of Khaki, brown and gold and blue color palettes.  But keep in mind, his dynamic creativity goes beyond the color to the vivacious creations he brings alive on the runway.

With an innate desire to create beautiful things, Detroit native Tracy Reese headed for Manhattan in 1982 to attend Parsons School of Design where she received an accelerated degree in 1984. Upon graduation, Reese moved to Paris where she apprenticed under designer Martine Sitbon while working for the small contemporary firm, Arlequin. Returning to New York, Reese worked at some of the industry’s top fashion houses, including Perry Ellis where she was the design director for Women’s Portfolio. (Source: tracyreese.com
