Giorgio Grati Fall Winter 2013/14 Collection

Giorgio Grati Fall Winter 2013/14 Collection | SUMMER FASHION | Scoop.it

The new collection of the brand Giorgio Grati for fall-winter 2013-2014 is inspired by different musical currents that are part of the soundtrack of our lives. Giorgio Grati think to pop to the everyday moments, certainly more fresh and light, to grunge to those in which you can relax in the countryside. Jazz when for a fun evening in a cool place, rock for the contrasts of black and white that accompany our life. The Giorgio Grati offers us seductive clothes. Looks are refined, well-articulated and distinguishable by a fashion show full of proposals. The mood pop consists of clothes from the energetic spirit and great comfort created for women who travel and work but with a touch of glamor that makes the difference. The grunge is designed for "bad girl", leisure clothes but with classic casual taste .

Bonnie Sandy's curator insight, April 7, 2013 10:52 PM

Is that a pocket on the bustline or is their a fit problem  at the bustline!

It took some back and forth before deciding to post this... but it was such an excellent example of why a line may not be picked up!

There is also  aquestion on the sleeve as well as the hemline.. is that intentional or is it a flaw.

 

Few designers Know what they are looking  to correct or spot  during  Fit sessions! Which translates to not knowing what to  spont in their lookbook images! 

.

SEEING a Look Book from a Buyers or critics eye...

It is sad because the images are interesting and the lines well thought out! So what's the problem...

Trained eyes can easily  pick up  poor construction and problems in fit!  As a buyer, I'd also test these on my own fit model these images speak of selling solely  to an androgynous client!  

Even if the sale sample fits,  I would pay  particular attention to the drape, especially in this white number!  

In the end you are Not selling 'Image" but apparel.

Curvy Closet: Exclusive Interview with Gwen DeVoe, Founder of Full Figured Fashion Week

Curvy Closet: Exclusive Interview with Gwen DeVoe, Founder of Full Figured Fashion Week | SUMMER FASHION | Scoop.it

New York, get ready. DeVoe Signature Events showcases plus size fashion and the community for its 5th annual Full Figured Fashion Week. Yes, Full Figured Fashion Week. Next week from June 17-22, New York serves as a haven for the plus size fashion lovers in a sold-out week full of fashion shows, a boat cruise, panels, shopping events and an awards ceremony (akin to the Oscars) celebrating those who have made strides within the community.

So to help you understand and learn more about this week, I had the pleasure to chat with the founder of FFFWeek®, Gwen DeVoe. DeVoe, affectionately known as “auntie” throughout the community, has taken this idea of hers and has grown it to an international event bringing in designers, bloggers, and lovers of fashion and beauty from Australia, France, Canada, and everywhere in between!

Please read on to learn a bit more about this week’s event and the impetus for such a monumental event.

Why Full Figured Fashion Week? What was your impetus for creating this?

I have a reputation for pushing the envelope.  Five years ago, I felt strongly that it was time for our industry to have a professional fashion event that celebrated (and even introduced to some) the works of the plus fashion industry, comparable to New York City’s Fashion Week events.  Additionally, I knew that there was a lot of talent in this industry that was uncovered and resources that were untapped.  I also felt that it was time for the plus fashion industry to come out of the shadows and take its rightful place as a billion dollar revenue generating industry.

What are you most excited for next week?

I am most excited and proud to be producing Curves for A Cure, our celebrity runway fashion show and silent auction to benefit breast cancer research. Curvy celebrities from all walks of life have stepped in and donated their presence to help us raise money to eradicate this disease.

What takeaways do you want those who attend to leave with about FFFWeek®?

Those that attend FFFWeek® come for many different reasons but I think that at the end of the event, most feel a sense of validation of the industry.  The plus fashion industry is a huge market and up until recently, we were disregarded.  I am proud to say that FFFWeek® has played a huge part in the shedding a spotlight on the industry.

Full Figured Fashion Week® is in its 5th year, Congrats! As you ready for its start, is this you had envisioned it to be?

I’m ready and it is definitely what I envisioned it to be.  I just didn’t realize that the event would grow so quickly.  My only wish is that we could accommodate all of the people that want to be involved every year.  Hopefully, that won’t be a problem in upcoming years.

For those who aspire to work in plus size fashion, what words of advice can you leave?

There are many opportunities to work in plus size fashion.  There is no difference in the way you prepare yourself for this industry or other industries.

1. Do your research on the industry and the area in which you want to work.  Find out what is required and obtain experience in those areas before you label yourself an expert.

2. Know who the key players are.  It may take some time for you to meet them, but at least know who they are when you meet them.

3. Exercise your “unique” voice but respect the opinions of opposing views, especially in public forums

4. It’s ok to be multi-talented but often a Model/Make-up Artist/Blogger/Stylist/Designer confuses people.  Work on one or two “passions” at a time.

5. Network to increase your net worth

Curvy Closet: The Top 10 Looks from Full Figured Fashion Week

Curvy Closet: The Top 10 Looks from Full Figured Fashion Week | SUMMER FASHION | Scoop.it

Last week, plus size fashion took the stage during the 5th annual Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek) produced by DeVoe Signature Events. Plus size women from across the globe (literally) descended onto New York City to talk fashion, empowerment, and the business of fashion. Asides from the obvious love of fashion, FFFWeek brings together friends, fosters networking, inspires designers, attendees, and bloggers, and creates a safe space to express oneself in a celebratory place.

From a Charity Runway Fashion Show, an Indie Designer Showcase, the Retailers and Boutique showcase, as well as the Curves in the City Shopping Event and Sample Sale- the week was full of fashionable surprises and more! And the fashion did not stop at the runway; the attendees showed off their curves, pushing the envelope and boundaries of what is plus size fashion.

FFFWeek showcased over 20+ designers, retailers, and brands throughout the week and there were quite a few standouts and memorable moments on the runway.  One thing to note about the entire week was the diversity. Style, ethnicity, and size were quite diverse and embraced.  Something that was quite appreciated and recognized from size 12- 22, the runway reflected a mirror more than any other runway we have seen. Today we share with you a few of our favorite looks, designers, and models who brought plus size fashion to life over the week’s fashionable events!

20 Plus-Size Swimsuits That Make A Splash

20 Plus-Size Swimsuits That Make A Splash | SUMMER FASHION | Scoop.it

Swimsuit shopping causes anxiety for most women, but when you're looking for sizes that are difficult to find, it adds another layer of stress.

For plus-size shoppers, the selection is very limited, and what's out there isn't all that great. Most suits in larger sizes are ill-fitting and often feature excess material that is wildly unflattering. But thanks to gals like Gabi Fresh, also known as style blogger Gabi Gregg, things are slowly starting to change.

Gabi, a curvy style guru, came to international attention by encouraging plus-size ladies to flaunt their figures in two-piece swimsuits (what she calls "fatkinis"). She later collaborated with a swimwear site to develop fashion-forward suits in larger sizes, which became popular as they filled a major gap in the market.

Thankfully, better options are coming for the plus-size community, but it definitely takes some digging to find a great one. To help you save time, we've rounded up 20 lust-worthy suits that are fit for any fashionista. Happy shopping and swimming!
