Vintage is In: Summer Vintage Styles

Find yourself on the strip in Vegas? On the beach at Miami? These keen fashion tips will help you figure out the perfect outfit and accessories for any occasion. According to Cynthia Findlay Antiques, one of the fundamentals to fashion I vintage. Vintage influences the new in ways that may not be apparent to the average person. If you develop an eye for it, vintage can be paired well with modern styles to create a look that is eye-catching and entirely unique. One of the best ways to pair vintage and modern fashions together is to accessorize. You can choose a vintage dress and modern shoes with a vintage style. This helps you look more in fashion, and less in costume. Vintage dress is very showy, so trying to go for the full vintage effect can result in overdressing for an occasion (and would add hours to your morning routine, trying to get hair and makeup just right). Edwardian vintage engagement rings, for example, are ultra-romantic pieces with gems and stones set into intricate metal working. These rings are reflective of a period when jewelers first began mastering the techniques that would lead to modern jewellery making. Alone, they seem almost flashy. Dress down with torn jeans. Part of the mystique of vintage is how it looks paired with the more casual styles of every day dress today. Don’t be afraid to mix eras either.

A Brief History of New York’s Fashion Week

By Samuel Phineas Upham New York has been a center for the fashion world since the early 1900s, when European fashions first came to America. At the time, it was quite popular for fashion magazines to print the latest fashions out of Europe, which is how Harper’s Bazaar got its start. Before that, Vogue was founded in 1892 on similar principles. The first fashion week wasn’t really a “Fashion Week”, per say. Eleanor Lambert, who was acting press director of the New York Dress Institute announced that all fashion shows would be put into a single week she dubbed “Press Week”. That was in 1942. By 1992, Press Week had become a full blown gala that nearly takes over New York City. Runway shows were held in private lofts and apartments, as fashion grew an underground culture. These shows, while seemingly simplified into one block of time, were surprisingly difficult for fashion editors to attend. During at least one show, the roof of the venue threatened to cave in. In 1993, everything changed when Fern Mallis of the Council of Fashion Designers of America decided that all shows should be held under one roof. This was really the first time New York’s Fashion week showed a side that would be recognizable to us today. All events were scheduled within a series of tents, an idea that took off and proved popular. The event was dubbed “7th on Sixth”, and was eventually sold to IMG. Today, IMG produces the signature shows while the CFDA oversees the larger list of all events in the area.
