Barcelona Fashion Week kicked off on Monday and we have already got a good idea what the designers have in store for us in Autumn/Winter 2014. The Desigual fashion show, which was held on 28 January, has got us pumped for the new season.

Dual fabric revisited

Dual fabric started to become popular in 2013 and it looks like the phenomenon is set to continue this year. The show saw puffa jackets combined with faux fur in a hybrid coat that combines the comfort and warmth of puffa jackets with the elegance and sophistication of faux fur.

Colourful prints

The new season isn't going to be all about dull threads either and the show featured some vibrant and colourfulprints with their range of figure hugging frocks and stylish dual fabric bags.

Cosy scarves

Neck wraps are fabulous for the relentless cold weather and we were definitely in love with the bright orange fluffy one.

Animal prints

If you love animal prints, you will be pleased to know that they made a wild appearance on the catwalk.

They were dressed down with casual kharki parkas for a relaxed take on the look.

Hat trick

What really made us stand to attention though was the flamboyant Russian hat/Queen's soldier's hat/ beaded headdress. The elaborate piece was definitely the highlight of the show and combining the elegance of Egyptian Queens with British foot guards head gear is certainly creative. It will be interesting to see if this trend makes its way to the high street.

The event will wrap up on 31 January but there is still plenty going on before then including shows from Celia Vela, Custo Barcelona, Isabela Toledo, Yerse and many more. There will also be pop up stores, daily design contests, photo exhibitions and plenty of glamorous parties.

Has anything from the collection caught your eye? What's your favourite piece?

New York Fashion Week: 4 Stocks with High ROE on the Runway

 

http://wire.kapitall.com/investment-idea/new-york-fashion-week-4-stocks-with-high-roe-on-the-runway/

 

Fashion Week isn't just about style – there are investment opportunities on the catwalk too.

New York Fashion Week kicked off yesterday, and over the next six days, nearly 90 designers will display their Spring 2014 collections in 350 shows and presentations around the city. Now in its unofficial 70th year, the semi-annual fashion showcase gives designers the opportunity to parade their sartorial talents and catch the eye of an editor or retailer. It's also the first major Fashion Week of the season and is immediately followed by shows in London, Milan, and Paris.

 

Fashion publicist Eleanor Lambert      founded New York Fashion Week back in 1943, when she assembled an event to highlight collections by American designers for the international press. Dubbed Fashion Press Week, the showings elevated the industry’s perception of American fashion and led to increased coverage within Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and other magazines. Back then, only 53 women’s page editors attended Fashion Press Week. These days, more than 200,000 people attend each Fashion Week.

 

Fashion capital

In February 2012, the New York City Economic Development Corporation (EDC) analyzed the economic benefits of Fashion Week. The EDC found that the spring and fall events are responsible for $532 million in direct visitor spending each year, which leads to an annual total economic impact of $865 million in the city. For context, the 2011 New York City Marathon generated $340 million for the Big Apple, an unprecedented amount for the race, while this year’s US Open is expected to bring $720 million to the city. Meanwhile in New Jersey, the next Super Bowl will be in East Rutherford, and is poised to deliver $430 million to the greater New York metropolitan area.

 

Investing ideas

The evidence makes it pretty clear: there’s a lot of money associated with New York fashion. For the following screen, we decided to take a closer look at American clothing brands that are typically involved with New York Fashion Week.  We began by constructing a universe of clothing stocks from the Apparel Store, Speciality Retail – Other, and Textile – Apparel Clothing industries. Next, we cross referenced our initial group of stocks with the list of designers presenting in the ongoing New York Fashion Week, as listed on the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week site, as well as designers featured in Style.com’s coverage of previous Fashion Weeks.

 

We then screened that list for companies with a return on equity (ROE) higher than the industry average, which is 20.4% for the Apparel Store industry, 10.5% for Specialty Retail – Other, and 14.9% for Textile Apparel – Clothing. ROE measures a firm's profitability by expressing a company's profits as a percentage of shareholder equity. The formula for calculating ROE is:

ROE = Net Income / Shareholder's Equity

Net income is a company’s profit (also referred to as total earnings) for an entire fiscal year, minus dividends paid to preferred stock. The preferred shares are also excluded from shareholder’s equity.

 

We were left with four stocks on our list.

Taylor Swift Ikke En God Pasform For Victoria's Secret Fashion Show: Siger Angel Jessica Hart

Taylor Swift Ikke En God Pasform For Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Siger Angel Jessica Hart, Newport International Group Runway News Update
annelore cope's insight:

Ligner Taylor Swift har nogle blandede anmeldelser fra hendes optræden på Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

 

Sangeren tog scenen på Lexington tøjhus i NYC på onsdag, November 13, belting ud hendes hit melodier som en sværm af VS skønheder gik banen i knap-der påklædning.

 

Og mens den "Jeg vidste du var problemer med" sanger kan har erklæret sig "Best Friends Forever" med et par af Victoria's Secret Angels, herunder Lily Aldridge, Erin Heatherton og Cara Delevingne, ikke alle supermodel synger den sangfugl roser.

 

"Jeg tror, du ved hvad, Gud velsigne hende [Taylor Swift] hjertet. Jeg tror hun er stor,"sagde Hart til Dametøj dagligt på seriens afterparty før du kaster en skygge på sangeren. "Men, jeg kender, mig, hun ikke passede. Jeg ved ikke, hvis jeg skal sige der."

 

Hmm.
