The New Phillip Lim collection for women 2011 F/W

The pastel coloured pieces with the glamorous parts have a sporty, but cosmopolitan effect. The interesting cuts of the coats and the pants fit perfectly for the boy-meets-girl-trend. The ad movie for this collection is perfect to make people feel the atmosphere of the clothes.

Wedding of a stylist

When I first saw this photo, I thought it would be a photo shooting for a magazine - but it was not! This Gareth Pugh gown was worn by Katie Shillingford, a stylist. I'm sure she has a unique style, and she probably doesn't cares what others think. This gown would perfectly fit for a gothic shooting, because it looks like an art creation. But I wouldn't wear it for a wedding - especially not with pink hair....

Chinese models

China gets always more and more important in the world's history - but also in fashion's history!
One of the most famous models is Sui He, face of Ralph Lauren right now. made an interview with her an interview, where she said, she loves shooting, and maybe you wouldn't guess, she is always very nervous, when she has to walk down the runway.
She was also shooting for Vogue China with other chinese models like Du Juan, Shu Pei and Liu Wen.
Sui He's dream is to own one time a restaurant, because she loves all kind of foods - French, Italian and also Chinese. And of course, she wants to keep working in fashion industry. :)

Hogan by Karl Lagerfeld's fall campaign looks also amazing - and also a chinese model was modeling (with many other american, french models). Du Juan - who I mentioned before, when I wrote about the Vogue China shooting - was photographed by Lagerfeld. The designer said about chinese women, that "they are beautiful, educated and elegant, natural." He also thinks, that "today we have to remember, know and acknowledge, that China is important."

Melinda Rader

I don't know, if you know, but I really like it! I especially like Daily Duo, where you can find posts about upcomer models. It's really interesting to see, which of these girls will create their career in this industry.
So I decided to post about these models and choose my favourite photos!

Melinda Rader is from the USA and is 179cm tall. I love her bonestructur, but her eyes and eyebrows don't impress me too much. People say, she is doing already good, although she is only since a few month in the competition.

Love this photo! The lights, the expression - very professional!

I don't like the hell eyebrows on that picture, it gives back the feeling of this style!

Nice photo! I like her attitude!


Fall/Winter 2011 - All trends

Watching all the fashion shows is just the beginning of informing yourself about the new trends. The next step is, making a list of the main lines of that season. So, after all the shows fall/winter 2011/2012, maybe the trend lines aren't enough clear for you. Here is a list with the top 10 trends, so you can go immediately AND easily shopping. :))

1) Strict elegance 

Classic, but edgy cuts and hard textures, determinate colours and strict hairstyles. The wide sleeves are also characteristic for this elegant, but strict style.

Best examples:


Louis Vuitton

2) Boyish chic

You will find a lot boyish coats, tails, dark-coloured pants in the shop. The boy-meets-girl look is one of the main lines this winter!

Best Examples:



3) Black

It looks like it will never go out of fashion - black appeared in most of the collection also this season.

Best examples:


Emporio Armani

4) Red

An intense colour, which has a bright palette,  from which we can choose. After the summer-trend orange, the autumnal colour will fill us up with energy.

Best examples:


Bottega Venata

5) Coats of the Sixties

The typical cut of the 60s is back - at least in the question of coats. Characteristic are also bright colours.

Best examples:


Jil Sander

6) Patterned clothes

The spring/summer trends don't end. We could see lots of patterned designs in the collactions.

Best examples:




Winter is cold - if you want to stay warm, the best way is wearing a fur.

How to create your own books?

It's almost fall, that means summer ends, work begins. To not to be bored the whole fall-winter-spring-period, I figured out, how I can design my own books. :)
It's very easy and looks amazing!

I made lots of different collages on my books. The good at this is, that each looks very unique, each has a special feeling, a speciality. It is sure, that a collagist's work is very interesting!

So, first of all, you have to buy some exercises books, for example like this:

Then collect some new/old magazines like Vogue or Bazaar:

Cut out the pictures you want to use for the collage:

Make the design of the collage (first the design, only AFTER it the use of glue):

The last step - glue the pictures together:

And..... it looks like this (for example). Great, isn't it?

If you don't want the backsite of the book blankly, you can choose a A/4 picture from a magazine and glue it on it:

I made a lot of these books, also for a present! They were very effective, so you could also try it! :))
