COUNTERFEITING – is not a victimless crime

FullSizeRender (71)

• Counterfeiters and crime syndicates collaborate to support human trafficking and child labor according to statistics. That fake Prada or Gucci handbag was likely made in a sweatshop which are notorious for violating child-labor laws and basic human rights.

• Counterfeiting is trademark infringement, and transacting with counterfeit items is illegal even when the sellers and buyers aren’t aware that the item is a fake.

• Selling and buying fakes is unethical because it deprives designers the fruits of their labor, unfairly putting those profits into dishonest hands.

• Counterfeiters “…do not pay taxes, meaning less money for your city’s schools, hospitals, parks and other social programs,” says the International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition (IACC), a nonprofit organization devoted to protecting intellectual property.

THE BLACK SKINNY JEAN

There’s good reason that black skinny jeans are a staple of so many women’s wardrobes: they go with everything from a tie-front blouse to a leather jacket and they’re flattering on practically every body type.

NYFW vs the rest . Is our way just a trend or a new way of doing business

fullsizerender-11

fullsizerender-7Part of the appeal of fashion has always been the feeling of exclusivity. However many designers are moving on to new ideas. Maybe you don’t want Forever 21 and H&M to have enough time to replicate your designs and sell them as their own if you are a famous fashion designer. Designers are now going  straight to their source of revenue, the customers! There is no longer the long wait for the line to hit stores. In the end, it’s not what the fashion editor says that really matters, it’s what the brand’s customer buys. Critics are no longer able to influence consumers opinions before they see the line themselves . Customers can now develop their own opinions without much bias involved. Now, on the other side of the world this new idea has not been met with enthusiasm by all. Many designers in Europe feel that this new method takes the desire out of runway. I guess we are going to see more bloggers heading to Paris and Milan.  #fashionweek #nyfw #fashiontrends

3. Though Hedi Slimane is known for his love of music and uses music as an inspiration in much of his designs, models walked out to no music. The only soundtrack was the voice of a woman announcing look numbers in French and English.

4. In another nod to the Yves Saint Before that happened, Pierre Berge escorted Betty Catroux in, just like old times.

The 80’s influence could be seen in a variety of skintight cocktail dresses, jumpsuits, and pant sets with exaggerated shoulders, plunging necklines, cinched waists, poufed skirts, side-bows, and short hemlines.

Saint Laurent 16 turned out to be Hedi Slimane’s swan song at the storied fashion house, with last look, an incredible red fox fur heart shaped cape at the end of this show was his kick-off to fashion for the moment.

While the new pre-fall season drop may be tempting you into knits and boots, it’s worth remembering we’ve still got at least two months of Summer ahead of us, meaning the summer dress should still be very much front of the mind.
