Style Icon - Cicely Tyson

Ms. Cicely Tyson.... wonderful style icon!  I first noticed a fantastic gown she was wearing for a formal occasion on Facebook.  I just loved the dress!  I didn't know this mature woman, who has won multiple acting awards,  had such an experimental free fashion sense!  Cicely Tyson is very daring and very successful with her dress choices. 

 I'm not sure how she was dressing as a young successful actress, starring in great movies such as Sounder, Roots and the Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman ( but I'll have to research that). In her later age, Ms.Tyson has acted and is still acting in movies such as The Help, several Tyler Perry movies and The Last Flag Flying.  She is an energetic inspiration.

Lovely Spring Collection

I found these beautiful clothes, I believe, on New York Magazine website.  They are fantastic!  Very new looks in terms of silhouettes, details and use of stripe and print fabrics.

These dresses, pants and tops are so fashion forward!

Till next blog next year!  Happy New Year!

What's the Material?

The first time I believe I saw a garment made from atypical material was on Project Runway.  It fascinated me that unusual items could be manipulated into clothes with an extraordinary flare.  I have yet to try making something using the unusual, but I think about it.

Found some fascinating designs made with objects with other original uses.  Lovely and time consuming work!

The Uncommon Blazer

It doesn't take a lot of change to stand out.  One striking clothing piece can do it.  I  came across some men's blazers with distinct details, fabrics and color combinations that aren't common, but are very attractive.  And will look good on the man with an eye for charming apparel.

Till next time and next blog!

Sensational Conventional Couture

Couture design is so intricate in detail using luxurious fabrics and time consuming sewing methods.  And couture design is so enjoyable to view, causing many of us to daydream about wearing such expensive clothes to an extravagant event. It's fun to daydream sometimes...

This Prevailing Hue - Black

Are you in the mood to wear black?  Maybe you want to express the times by wearing neutral colors. Whether the times are good or not so great,  black seems to be one of the favorite colors to wear.  Details on a black garment will get  more attention as the hue is not intense.

Until next blog.

From Areas in Emergency: Focus on Designers

What a summer!  Fires, hurricanes and earthquakes!  Summer is technically over September 22, 2017, and I hope nothing else catastrophic will be happening.  

For those recovering from the disasters that have happened, and are still happening, in British Columbia, Canada (wildfires), Texas (hurricane Harvey) and Florida  and some Caribbean islands (hurricane Irma), designers from each area are featured this week.

League of Rebels, Texas, US

Allison Smith design, British Columbia, Canada

Calvin Southwell design, Antigua, Carribean

Praying for the quick restoration of each province, state, and island.  Till next blog.
