Dolce & Gabbana - Alta Moda Autumn/Winter
2019 Couture Collection
Yes, there's good news in The Fashion Spot's latest diversity report, but also some important lessons for the industry
we're pretty pleased to be able to report something positive: The Spring 2019 runways were the most racially diverse ever.
The runway pictures were sent to the world within minutes and the social media accounts of the invited few shared the action. But the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda show felt more intimate, more private and more esoteric than any other destination show this season, from cruise to couture. In the Valle dei Templi in Agrigento on the south coast of Domenico Dolce’s native Sicily – a two-hour drive from Palermo – he and Stefano Gabbana erected a runway structure within the 430 BC Temple of Concordia and told the story of their Italian island’s Ancient Greek roots through stupefying savoir-faire splendour. “Culture is a complicated word,” Dolce said in a preview. “This is a very private story. We only want to share this with people who feel the same as we do.”
He was referring to their devoted and extremely fabulous-looking clients, who had made the voyage to this remote part of Sicily from every continent on the globe. Here, they wear their Alta Moda dresses, their Alta Sartoria suits and Alta Gioielleria jewels with each other, for each other, and get to be part of a very limited club. Many of them travel with their entire families – two or three generations on the front row. Because much as the Alta Moda experience is connected to the elitism that comes with haute couture, this weekend in Agrigento feels more like a spiritual gathering. Whether you worship trendy health gurus, Greek gods or Italian master dressmakers, there’s something about a small group of kindred spirits meeting in faraway sun-drenched, arid scenery that evokes familiar associations.
It’s a profound sense of devotion that can often feel like a timeout from society, a breather, a world of one’s own. “From 1984, little by little, we built an image and a label,” Gabbana said. “We know we are good not because we are better than other labels but because we are independent and it’s not easy to tell a story like we do. Everything comes from our hearts, not from a CEO. We are spontaneous. We make what we want. Alta Moda is an expression of this. It’s an experience. We want to share with you our hearts.” If it sounds incredibly heartfelt, it’s because it is. This was a special Alta Moda for the designers, who return to Sicily over and over again – physically and inspirationally – perhaps because they often feel a little bit like an island in the wavy sea of fashion.
R U N W A Y L O O K S
They wanted to present their show in the Temple of Concordia because these structures, like haute couture, represented a sense of elevation to the Ancient Greeks who built them. Much like decorating one’s physique in the divine craftsmanship that goes into one-of-a-kind dressmaking, classicism was man’s way of building a stairway to the gods: reaching for an all-encompassing beauty ideal that went beyond the material. Dolce and Gabbana named each dress after a Greek muse and took inspiration from their patronages, from the armour of Athena to the crossbow of Diana. But beyond the theatrical metal accessories and beaded gold leather sandals, each dress interpreted Ancient Greece through painstaking artisanal proficiency.
Pottery motifs and meander patterns materialised on dresses in delicate needle-punch embroidery on translucent tulle or lace, in beaded appliqué on a dress with sleeves shaped like ceramic vases, rendered entirely in sequins on cocktail dresses, or on a mink cape constructed in intarsia. A section of gowns paid homage to the Grecian goddess silhouette in peplos architecturally composed from plissé panels, while fringe – the most ancient idea of surface decoration – was interpreted all over a dress in micro-beaded frills that rustled like metal tinsel, and feather work was evoked exclusively through intricate, super-dimensional embroidery that resembled plumage.
The floral decorations of Sicilian houses became foliage on porcelain-like dresses, and some tulle dresses were covered in embellishments only to be overlaid with more fabric and embellished again, creating a depth effect that looked, quite literally, beyond. In a kind of optical illusion, Dolce and Gabbana transferred the neoclassical paintings of Jacques-Louis David and Jean-Antoine-Théodore Giroust to silk gazar gowns. When the models curved around the arch of the runway, the images would momentarily disappear through the filters of fabric only to reappear again when you saw them from the right angle. Helena Christensen also appeared, in a gilded black tunic runway-sweeper that glistened in the golden Sicilian sunlight, her name never as appropriate as in a show deifying the Hellenistic ideal.
Dolce & Gabbana is the first luxury brand to introduce sizes for all body types
In the past, the so-called large sizes were not considered the height of glamor - their goal was more than anything to hide the extra kilos, without other pretensions. Fashion tended to be decided somewhere else: small sizes and skinny models in every catalog. Yet it seems that the most sold size in the world is 44-45 and not 38. Fortunately, the fashion world has begun to realize it and to renew its clothing based on the real needs of many women and men. In particular, Dolce & Gabbana has recently launched its new curvy line, sizes up to 54. Finally.
No more only skinny models
The company spokesperson said that "the beauty of women is not a matter of the size of the dress she is wearing". Although it may seem of little importance, it is actually a very important event in the fashion world that until now imposed a totally unreal beauty as a standard model to follow. The extra pounds have always been seen as something negative, but now something is finally changing.
Finally the way of thinking is changing: we gradually hope that the day will come when we will no longer fall victim to stereotypes and external impositions, but will have the courage to be exactly as we are.
Fall 2019 Was the Most
Racially Diverse Fashion Week in History
Two years after the designer Philipp Plein tried (and failed) to “make New York Fashion Week great again,” the CFDA’s jewel did it all on its own. Even without Rihanna—not to mention her army of Fenty models like Slick Woods—this season was one for the books. Fall 2019 finally went beyond sending one nonwhite model down each runway: No fewer than nine of the 10 most booked models this season were women of color. But New York Fashion Week has always led its European counterparts—Paris, London, and Milan—in terms of diversity, which is why it’s only now, more than a month after the first day of shows, that the industry is declaring victory. Thanks to the Fashion Spot, which went through its usual painstaking process of tracking each and every show and model appearance this season (fall 2019 featured 221 shows and 7,300 models), we can confirm that Fashion Week has officially never been more diverse.
Perhaps even more importantly, as the nearly one-third of shows in New York that featured 50 percent or more models of color suggests, it may have also been the first time the industry seemed to understand diversity as a concept, rather than a buzzword. According to the Fashion Spot, 38.3 percent of models who walked the 221 shows that made up the fall 2019 season were people of color.
The Most Surprising Models to Walk Fashion Week Fall 2019
After ruling the runway last season, supers and faces from the '90s are now taking a back seat at Fashion Week.
(Aside from a few star turns from Gemma Ward and Pat Cleveland.) So far this season, fall/winter 2019, has instead featured a surprising number of cameos from outside of the modeling industry. No one could miss Pen´élope Cruz, who made her runway debut at Karl Lagerfeld's final show for Chanel, nor 66-year-old Mickey Rourke, who brought his dog with him to walk Philipp Plein. Others managed to stay low-key: At Batsheva, more people seem to have noticed Ali Michael's return to the runway for the first time in about a decade than the fact that Christina Ricci, also out of the public eye recently, hit the catwalk. And even runway regulars are making way for the newcomers; Kendall Jenner has only walked a single show this season, aka just as many as the preteens who walked Vaquera and the baby who walked—well, sat atop the shoulders of a model who walked—at Collina Strada. See all of their best efforts to measure up to Fashion Week's real surprise winner, Grace Jones, here.

“Quitting is never an option on the road to success. Find the way forward. If you have a positive mindset and are willing to do whatever it takes, there is little that is beyond your reach. The attitude of being ready to work even in the face of challenges and despite odds is what will make all the difference in your life.”

Diversity allows people to accept themselves as well as others. It makes them more rounded individuals who can learn from others and respect people from different walks of life. It allows us to evolve. To celebrate and encourage diversity.

ONE OF The biggest issue still is .. Being a woman
In a world heavily skewed to favor males, it can sometimes be hard for women to believe in themselves,
or to truly appreciate the female strengths that make them amazing.
Contrary to the male-dominated world, women provide the foundation of power, grace,
wisdom, justice, creativity, and hope. Besides, women are known to have better
Throughout history, the world has witnessed many great women of strength who managed to tap into
their Everyday Power to leave an indelible mark on society.
The beginning of the fight for women’s suffrage in the United States
, which predates Jeannette Rankin’s entry into Congress by nearly 70 years,
grew out of a larger women’s rights movement
Living the Legacy: The Women’s Rights Movement (1848-1998)
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” That was Margaret Mead’s conclusion after a lifetime of observing very diverse cultures around the world
. Her insight has been borne out time and again throughout the development of this country of ours. Being allowed to live life in an atmosphere of religious freedom, having a voice in the government you support with your taxes, living free of lifelong enslavement by another person. These beliefs about how life should and must be lived were once considered outlandish by many. But these beliefs were fervently held by visionaries whose steadfast work brought about changed minds and attitudes. Now these beliefs are commonly shared across U.S. society.
The story goes on and on....
Violence against women is rooted in discrimination and inequality, making it challenging to address. Men and women who have not had opportunities to question gender roles, attitudes and beliefs, cannot change them. Women who are unaware of their rights cannot claim them. Governments and organizations without access to standards, guidelines and tools cannot adequately address these issues. Once evidence accumulates and awareness grows, the potential for stopping all forms of violence does too.
strong and powerful women !!!
is a professional, qualified fashion designer.
She makes Moroccan dresses Caftans, Takchitas, Jellabas,
and all her designs are made by hand
She does not only make Moroccan dresses but also modern clothes ,
evening dresses, wedding dresses and also creates fashion for men and more. Something
for everyone from young to old from slim to plussize .
it is finally that time and she has created her own name.
Fashion is part of our culture,
and it's about more than just a pretty dress
The strongest actions for a woman
is to love herself, be herself and shine amongst
those who never believed she could
A strong woman builds her own world!!!
Naomi Campbell: “Models of color are not a trend, we are here to stay”
Naomi Campbell still sees racism in fashion, despite the industry’s growing efforts to embrace diversity. In an exclusive interview from the Condé Nast Luxury Conference in Cape Town, the supermodel tells Vogue that only when Africa – its models and its designers – is properly represented on the runway will equality really be achieved.
was born in Indonesia where she as a young girl already developed a passion for fashion.
In 2005 she came to the Netherlands where she next to a career in hospitality
Started a study as Fashion Designer at the Nederlandse Beauty School.
After her graduation she participated in fashion contests where she was very successful
and won the Angola Fashion Award.
This made her more motivated and her designs are seen at many fashion shows.
Her former school recognized her talent and she returned to school
as a part time fashion teacher. The designs she creates are influenced
by her roots in Indonesia and are unique, elegance, chic with a sexy touch
A lot of people would say 'sexy' is about the body.
But to me, 'sexy' is a woman with confidence.
I admire women who have very little fear.
Women have to find their own personality,
their own style, and what suits them the best
Yes, we become stronger
when men and women, young and old, gay and straight, native-born and immigrant
fight together to create the kind of country we all know we can become.
More to come...

An East-meets-West theme unleashed his predilection for opulent adornment on a China-red dress with textured sequined dragon sleeves and the warrior-inspired embroidered asymmetric tattoo dresses.

Paris Fashion Week Men’s spring ’19 season
Paris Fashion Week Men’s brought on a slew of new industry shake-ups for the spring ’19 season. For starters, Virgil Abloh made his highly-anticipated debut as artistic director of Louis Vuitton Homme, fusing streetwear and luxury on a rainbow gradient runway. Kim Jones’ first collection for Dior Men was also anxiously awaited, where the creative director explored trending silhouettes like dad sneakers and sock shoes, while introducing textured loafer-hybrids. Meanwhile, collaborations such as Nike at Sacai and Adidas x Y-3 held the sneaker realm down.
Here, FN rounds up six of the top shoes throughout the week.
Dior Men’s Subtle Dad Sneakers
For his debut at Dior Men (strategically changed from Dior Homme to signal the transition), Jones did not avoid the key trends but did make them his own. In the dad sneaker realm, the designer took a much subtler approach with a sole just thick enough to fit the dad shoe genre but not so chunky that they couldn’t be paired with a crisp off-white suit. In neutrals like white and gray, the shoes tied the look together accordingly.

TAKING OVER THE WORLD
Social media are already more important than our lives most people would say. What does the internet really do to our society.
“Fashion is part of the daily air and it changes all the time, with all the events. You can even see the approaching of a revolution in clothes. You can see and feel everything in clothes.
THE GAME CHANGERS
"What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language.

The fashion industry has become more diverse, more inclusive.
More open. It is less them-vs. you. It is us. Yes, fashion still has its flaws. Designers often still have tunnel vision. The industry still makes head-smacking gaffes. There are far too many cases of profound insensitivity and cavalier cultural appropriation. In the past decade, it has opened its doors to more people of color, plus-size women, transgender women and those who simply don't fit the industry's classic definition of beauty. Most importantly, fashion is talking about diversity in more nuanced ways — and learning from its mistakes.
THE SPRING 2019 RUNWAYS WERE MORE RACIALLY DIVERSE THAN EVER
Yes, there's good news in The Fashion Spot's latest diversity report, but also some important lessons for the industry.
We're pretty pleased to be able to report something positive: The Spring 2019 runways were the most racially diverse ever. What began with record-setting (in terms of model representation) New York castings did, in fact, extend to Europe, and all in all, runways exhibited diversity that came off as genuine, routine and baked-in, rather than tokenistic or as some kind of specific political exclamation point

She also appeared on the cover of "Vogue," helping to break down barriers in the notoriously snooty fashion world.
"We are beginning to see signs of fashion moving in the right direction," Marc Karimzadeh and Nicky Campbell wrote on the website of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), which says it represents more than 500 men's and women's designers as well as jewelry and accessory designers.
"Designers such as Michael Kors and Christian Siriano are casting models that defy tradition," they said in a reference to the fashion world's longstanding preference for slimness.
"Body Positivity is important in fashion and we want to see more designers and companies embrace this in 2019," the CFDA communication officials wrote
A movement to recognize alternate body types started in 2017 at New York Fashion Week, with runway shows by Prabal Gurung, Christian Siriano and Michael Kors.
In September, the CFDA launched with plus-sized brand Dia&Co the #TeeUpChange campaign to encourage greater diversity in size among young creators.
It also collaborated last year with Universal Standard, a brand that offers to exchange a piece of clothing in the year following its purchase if the customer´s size changes.
"In the past year, we put more focus on size inclusivity," through the Dia&Co and Universal Standard tie-ups, "and it continues to be a focus going forward," Karimzadeh told AFP.

First African American Child Runway Supermodel Celai West is a Whole Mood for 2019
Celai West, a ten-year-old professional fashion model, whose talent is shown on and off the runway. West has already caught the attention of some of the industry’s top insiders, like Miss J. Alexander. She amazed the crowd after closing for the opening show, David Tupaz Couture, during Style Fashion Week in New York. West was the youngest professional runway model among the lineup and is the first African American kid supermodel to do so.
West’s signature walk and natural hair has generated attention from 6 million plus viewers on social media.
Not only is West a gifted model, but at the age of seven she became an entrepreneur, launching The Chatty Chic, an apparel line that features bold statements and inspiring affirmations. West saw this as a stylish way to encourage self-love in children and adults of all ages.
