August 17th, 2010 You know in fashion when trends for a season magically intersect with all the things you like and suit you and suddenly shopping is a joy rather than a drag? No, me neither. But I think my time has come! Honestly, I think I need a lie down. All images from a variety of august/september ’10 issues of magazines via the glorious Fashion Gone Rogue.

The origami-like shapes found their way back in, while other pieces were beaded and draped like the processional garb of some ancient Empress. Odds are the red carpets will also be awash with the full lace one-pieces that brought the jumpsuit to a new level of formality and elegance. More images after the jump. Images:

Urban Renewal by Mari Santos We're usually kinda "meh" about most T-shirt surgeries because we're just can't get into the hack'em, slash'em sartorial school of thought. Toronto-based Mari Santos, on the other hand, is such a genius with a pair of scissors we want to hitchhike across the border, kidnap her, head back south, and then set her to work against her will on the oversize T-shirts we seem to get for free by the pound. Except that it would probably be illegal. Which is kind of a bummer. Her ethos: "Taking something old, frumpy and ill fitting and making it into something new." More pictures below the fold. [Via ::NotCot] Mary Mary Quite Contrary – HonestlyWTF It’s no surprise that the work of Mary Katrantzou is featured in V‘s upcoming ‘Discovery’ issue, featuring the next generation of emerging fashion designers. A relatively new designer, Mary has already made her mark with her simple silhouettes, emblazoned with hyper-realistic, richly innovative, bold colour prints. Her Spring 2011 collection is entirely printed with images of lavish hotel and stateroom interiors by digitalizing fragments of pages from vintage copies of Architectural Digest and The World of Interiors. Whether you dig her dresses or not (and I do!!), you can’t deny her talent and willingness to take a risk. (top image from here, bottom images from here)

DIY guide – draped skirt | Passions for Fashion mandag, 19 september 2011 Her får I den længe ventede DIY guide til at binde en draperet nederdel, som jeg første gang viste i et indlæg fra Kreta. Jeg har brugt et gammelt tørklæde fra H&M, men har I ikke et tørklæde i den stil, kan man købe et langt stykke jersey stof i en stofbutik meget billigt. Jeg håber at I kan lide guiden og at den er til at forstå, ellers spørger I bare. Here is a DIY guide on how to tie a draped skirt.

My brother and I used to visit the local library and borrow tons of books about galaxies, spaceships and planets. The obsession stuck and now, even my design portfolio is filled with space-inspired pieces. There is something so fascinating and mysterious about coloured clouds, planets and stars... Galaxy print clothes have gained phenomenal popularity over the last three years, but oddly enough, they never made it to the racks of affordable chain stores. This afternoon, I found a pair of old washed out black jeans I wore in high school and I decided to make my own non-pricey galaxy-inspired jeans! You'll need: - A pair of black jeans. - A spray bottle filled with two parts bleach (javel) and one part cold water - Some acrylic paints. - An old toothbrush - A sponge - Little containers/plates to mix the paint 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
