Report: Street Style + Book (Reporte: Street Style + Libro)

(ENGLISH)

I have been working all this week for the New York Fashion Week :D and It has been an awesome experience. I'll tell you the details in a next post.

I leave you two gifts:
1. A beautiful outfit (StreetStyle) on a beautiful woman:

Debra Rapoport
Personal Style/LifeStyle

2. I found this stylish lady when I went to a presentation of the book "Gods and Kings: The Rise and Fall of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano" by Dana Thomas at the Fashion Institute of Technology. This book is an unflinching look at the relentless world of couture and the price it demanded of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano, even as they helped luxury fashion grow from a clutch of small, family-owned businesses into a $280 billion-a-year global corporate industry. It was very very interesting point of view of somebody who has been working in the World of Fashion for many years. It was funny that few days before I was commenting this topic with my boyfriend and I never imagined that somebody had written about this: World of Art vs Fashion Industry.

Inspiration (Inspiración)

(ENGLISH)

This week starts the New York Fashion week. I'm really excited because I was looking for being part of it and I achieved it like a volunteer. I'll be in different shows during these two weeks. I hope that everything goes well, this is the first time in my life that I do something that important related to the Fashion world and I'm very happy but confused, sometimes I am afraid I don't know what to expect. I have to get black clothes and few materials to work.

On the other hand, I have been thinking about sources of inspiration from the point of view of a Fashion Designer. Some weeks ago I took a sketching class and I was very very impressed and inspired for all the techniques to find sources of inspiration that my teacher taught us. I'll post about my sketches soon. Anyway I'll post a couple of pictures that caught my eye.
