Vionnet SS12
Finally, THE THIRTIES!

Though the Spring/Summer collections have allocated a lot of efforts towards time travelling to the 20s, 50s, 70s and more, no one until Vionnet had worked with the 1930s.

Set in a mirrored salon on the Rue de Valois, designer Rodolfo Paglialunga took that chance. An almost-risk free chance, to be honest, as it was in fact Madeleine Vionnet who invented the Twenties-tastic bias cut.

There was a real motif of stars, flowers, and butterflies (who flew into the models’ hair, all-a-sequined) inspiring the elegant collection. There was even a goddess gown embroidered with the most carefully considered bumblebees. Rodolfo offered the most organic, marketable beauty of the season. View Post

2011 marks Tumblr‘s second year of sponsoring fashion and beauty bloggers to attend New York Fashion Week and cover it on their Tumblr-made blogs. The following twenty blogs are going to get access to front row and backstage opportunities 99% of industry insiders would kill for (AHEM hi!). To congratulate the bloggers (Annamarie, Closet Collage, Ellepa, Farpits, From Me To You, Gaws, Girl With Curves, High On Flowers, High Like Fashion, History of Chuck, How To Talk To Girls At Parties, Justin Chung, Karla Powell MUA, Men In This Town, Opium Poppies, Novh, Paper Tissue, Tuula, The Style Student, and We The Urban), I have taken five of their most striking fashion-realted images for this week’s Best of Tumblr!
