Fashion is Fun 

Fashion is diverse and always changing. Fashion is something no one can ever get bored with. It can wild and crazy or tamed and reserved. It reflects upon an individual and speaks volumes about who that person is. You can tell a story by how you carry yourself, how you speak, smile and most importantly, HOW YOU DRESS!!! Your unique fashion sense can tell a story about you. It's the first impression you give off to others so please, let it be a good one. If style you're lacking, you've come to the right place. If you've got style, stay current because styles are always changing. This is a place for those looking to get into the fashion industry: Fashion Designers, Buyers, Merchandisers, Models, Fashion Photographers, Fashion Followers and anyone else who's interested. Enjoy!!

Spring 2007 Shows: London, Milan

Runway shows from Europe's biggest designers are in full swing as fashionistas moved from London to Milan this week. Miuccia Prada, showed her version of Spring 2007 which (not surprisingly) featured deep jewel tones and pin-up girl looks. Prada is recognized as a highly creative fashion force and one of the most influential designers working today. Her interpretation of Spring 2007 is different from much of what was seen in New York (lightness and ease were major themes). So what was she thinking? In WWD, Miuccia Prada said "Beauty is a moral concept," she said. "Beauty is the search for good."


Top Plus-Size Looks for the Fall

Don't hide your curves under baggy clothes this fall. Instead, opt for all the latest trends like curve-hugging jersey dresses, suede jacket, skinny jeans (yes! skinny jeans work in plus sizes when paired with a tunic top) and cozy sweater coats.
