Spring 2010 Fashion Week Presentation

September 14, 2009

New York Fashion Week (September 12, 2009) – Stacey Bendet once again brings her work to life with the launch of alice + olivia’s spring 2010 collection. This season the innovative designer will transform a raw gallery space in New York City’s meatpacking district into a live rock concert scene featuring a performance by French girl band Plastiscines and styled by Stacey’s longtime friends Anda and Masha.

Following the success of the past themed presentations “alice in wonderland”, “breakfast in bed”, “hippy queen” and Mick Rock photo gallery at alice + olivia’s Bryant Park Store, Stacey once again spins a stylish tale through the music of the Plastiscines, enlisting the band to perform and promote the playful mood of the collection. Both the band and the runway models, posing as adoring fans, will showcase the designers’ spring looks.

Stacey’s inspiration for her spring 2010 collection was “the power of the female”. She wanted to represent girls “predicating sexuality, cleverness and charm” by combining influence from all the women who influence her every day. Keeping her feminine side in mind, she set about to create a collection she describes as “playful with an edge”. The designer often credits her line as catering to every kind of woman; creating clothes that are meant to make a woman feel both sexy and sweet. After seeing the Plastiscines’ “Barcelona” video, Stacey decided that there was no better way to bring her spring collection to life than with a performance by the band. The band exudes a “candy punk vibe” that is in tune with alice + olivia’s cleverly unique style.

Chic structured dresses in pale pinks, purples and neutrals are mixed with the brand’s traditional black and white colors. Small floral prints, embellished tops and structured jackets with cut out details define the flirty and inventive collection. alice + olivia will also showcase their basics line featuring t-shirts and button-downs in soft, butter-like fabrics, linens and metallics. This season alice + olivia also unveils their latest collaboration with the jewelry line Erickson Beamon and their continued partnership with Payless, featuring fashion-forward footwear for spring.

Spring 2010 will also mark the launch of alice + olivia’s premiere high-end collection. The new line was created to add more diversity for their specialty stores and allow customers to have a more unique alice + olivia shopping experience. The collection consists of hand worked pieces that use luxurious materials and detailed craftsmanship. These edgy and inventive designs will be available as part of a limited edition collection.

As always, the imaginative and edgy collection will reflect Stacey’s lifestyle, as the ever busy designer continues to live bi-coastally and is mom to ten-month old daughter Eloise Breckenridge Eisner. Stacey views life and fashion as synonymous, and continues to find ways to creatively blend the two elements. With a chic spring collection brought to life by the Plasticines music, alice + olivia pushes the boundaries of art and fashion.

Vintage Fashion is Cool

I never thought I'd get addicted to vintage fashion. It's just lately that I learned to really appreciate vintage stuff. Oh my goodness! I love buying vintage clothes, bags, and shoes! Oh, needless to say that I love the price too!

Lately, I loved it more when I discovered a site on vintage stuff. Oh my, I would love to have everything that's on it! Imagine, cool and beautiful stuff, unique pieces actually, in a good - well yeah, cheap - price! Who wouldn't love that?

Anyway, I guess I've said enough. Let me share to you the site I am talking about. It's called, POSH GIRL VINTAGE.

The Oscars 2010

This post is a little too late. But as the saying goes, "Better late than never." So here it goes. My top choices of best and worst of the recently concluded Oscars Awards.


A wow to that. She really looked like the star of the night upon her arrival at the Oscar's. Her gown is simplet yet so elegant. Definitely an A.


Isn't that gorgeous? Bella definitely looked amazingly great with Monique Lhuillier's creation. Stewart was really an eye catcher at the Red Carpet. I guess she deserves an A+.


Not that I totally hate the dress but I just find it too simple and nothing more. I don't like the cut either. Contrary to other fashion reviews, I am not amazed with Ms. Winslet. I would give her a B- for this.


The dress is elegant-looking but I find it inappropriate for the Oscar's. Maybe a simpler cut would have been better. Nevertheless, I'd still give her an A.


Okay, of all the dresses I am posting here, this is what I really hate. I just don't like it. Cyrus should have worn something better than this. With that, I guess I have to give her a C-.

Fashion Assessment 001

Okay, I just really have to say this, when it comes to wearing something, you have to be sure that the dress really looks good on you. I noticed some people wear clothes not because it fits good, but just because they thought they just want to be in with the world.

Hey people, being fashionable is not about going with the norm or something like being alike with everybody else. For me, being fashionable is being yourself.

Anyway, I saw some photos of dresses I'd love to wear one day. But to keep everything balanced, I also have one that I wouldn't want to wear at any occassion, at all cost.

So here, I love the blue dress below. I got the picture at MetroFashion.Com. I love how it fits, and yeah, the color is soothing in the eye. I also love the simplicity of the dress. Oh, I believe that the simpler, the better. But of course, not at all times. By the way, the dress is an A for me.

On the other hand, here's Miss Glee wore at the recently concluded Grammy's. I love the dress. I love the shoes, and yeah, the make up as well. Oh, did you see how it managed to create a sexy image of the one wearing it? Well, it's an A+ for me.

Okay, I love Taylor Swift. In fact, I can say I am a fan. She's evidently pretty but I just hate the gown. It isn't flattering at all. She must have worn something else. Well, as for me, I won't take the chance of wearing the gown. There's something in it that doesn't amaze me. Oh well, that's a C for me. (The last two pictures were from ThinkFashion.Com)
