In the Spotlight: Curacao International Fashion Week!

Yes Yes, you read it right; Curacao International Fashion Week!!

When I first read about this event on Facebook I was a little skeptical about it since it was plain Curacao Fashion Week. I started to wonder how many local designers existed and if they could pull off a fashion week. But as more information about this event emerged I went from skeptical to excited. It happens to be that the event is Curacao International Fashion Week and it is exactly this international nature of the event that really changed my perspective.

"Curaçao International Fashion Week has as goal to be the leading event in the Caribbean for fashion designers to showcase their collections to a global audience of press, retailers, stylists, industry influencers and establish itself as a platform of discovery promoting innovative fashion designers through runway shows and exhibitions, without excluding the most important part of this event which is promote internationally what makes Curaçao special among Caribbean Islands."

Wardrobe Essentials for Spring/Summer!

After receiving a couple of request for a post on colors for Spring & Summer I decided to do a 2-in-1 post. I was already working on a post about what colors and prints are wardrobe essentials right now. But since Spring is approaching and Summer is not that far, an integration of these two seemed to be the best approach.

When it comes down to colors and prints, everything really depends on your style, what you feel comfortable wearing or your dare level. Meaning that style and taste are really personal, but that doesn't mean you can't take inspiration from something or someone and make it your own. So consider this post a guide for your Spring & Summer wardrobe.

The wardrobe essentials (must haves) according to me are:
  • Lace
  • Aztec/Tribal Print
  • Pastel & Bright Colors
  • Khaki-ish
  • White
  • Stripes

In the Spotlight: My Fashion Database (MyFDB)!

Forgive me for discovering this website until now! I still can not remember how or why I stumbled upon this major website, but whatever the reasons might be I am glad & thankful.
"My Fashion Database is the fashion industry’s go-to resource; we celebrate the credits that move fashion forward! We organize fashion credits of all the latest covers, campaigns, and editorials from publications and brands around the world."

That description could not have been more precise. On MyFBD.com you can find magazine covers, editorials, campaigns, people(ranging from photographers to models) and companies. So just like the name already says it is this huge fashion database. What I liked from things I've seen so far on the website was that some of the magazine covers and campaigns date back from the 90's so you can clearly see how things have changed the past decades.

Menswear According to Trey Songz!

When I started this blog, menswear was definitely one of the topics on my list to be covered. I just didn't know how to present it until now! I feel like the male figure is starting to have its own role in fashion, but little attention is paid to it.
For some unknown reasons, the past weekend was filled with conversations about Trey Songz for me. So I went on and did some research on Mr. Tremaine Neverson's style and I found out he was featured in the March edition of GQ magazine and I instantly knew how to present the menswear section. Even though the interview was not exactly about Trey's sense of fashion, I know that most of the time celebrities do not agree for a shoot if the clothes they are wearing does not speak to them or if it's not their style. Meaning that I feel like everything he wore for the shoot was 100% true to his style.

Fashion Obsession/Addiction #001: Blazers!

Nevermind my name... I'm a blazer addict. I've been digging the whole blazer trend for a long while now, but ever since purchasing my first blazer last year I've been obsessed with blazers. Unfortunately for my obsession I live on a sunny island where wearing blazers on a daily basis or even once in a while might not be such a good idea. Honestly I feel like this is one of the addictions I will never ever get over. It will be one of those pieces of clothing I must have in (almost) every single color. 

Currently I own a black one purchased at Bershka last year around August in Colombia, but I'm looking forward to add more blazers to my closet soon. I constantly look at blazers on online stores like Forever21 and stuff, but since the fitting is very important to me I'm not risking buying blazers online to avoid having them too tight or too loose.
