Emerging global fashion

As the global population boom, there are inevitable implications on livestock. Demand for food and shelter have grown manifold resulting in an alarming scarcity of land meant for rearing animals, says Satyadeep Chatterjee.

Trends have to be predicted taking into consideration possible drastic changes. Fashion consumers are becoming more conscious of the environment. They prefer eco-friendly material, conservative use of resources, reduced emission of pollutants, greater social commitment and fair treatment of employees in production facilities.

The presence of a large number of players in the sector has intensified the competition to garner a larger chunk of the market share of this lucrative industry. On the demand front, consumers are rapidly aligning towards new designs and innovative leather offerings to ensure they are in sync with changing fashion trends. Another factor that needs to be taken into account is the rise of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) economies. Their dominant position in the labour-intensive textile and leather industries makes it difficult for other countries to match them.

Owing to high demand, the leather goods

Effect of fashion show on society

Fashion shows are a channel of communication between fashion designers and customers where designers showcase new ideas through merchandise on live models. Saranya looks at the impact these shows have.

Entry of fashion show in apparel industry

Once upon a time, designers showed new styles and designs to clients through sketches. After the dress was completed, it was displayed on a wooden dummy. Fashion dolls are said to be the first means of circulating the latest dress styles. Fashion dolls were used to show upcoming styles and designs to the customers. The dolls were illustrated with new styles and dressed up with jewellery as well as hair and dress styles.

Charles Worth, British couturier in Paris, came up with the idea of the living mannequin. When he opened his own store, his wife modelled his creations in the salon. When the idea worked, he employed mannequins who walked about in the salon or down the runway to show his collections to consumers. It was on early 1911, living models were used as a regular part of fashion

Best fashion for women

With more women becoming confident and independent, it is now a norm to see that reflected in their dress, says Yashodhara Shroff.

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.” Thus advised the late Gianni Versace, celebrated fashion designer of the eponymous Italian fashion house. The thought certainly captures the essence of New Age fashion, which focuses on concepts of individuality and self-expression.

In recent times, many noted female personalities have begun to play a key role in transforming the way people perceive women’s fashion wear globally. Whether it is a classy and conventional look, or bold and over the top, contemporary women are not afraid of experimenting with their appearance or changing their style. This is evident in the way celebrities dress during award shows. This new-found comfort in wearing what one desires, irrespective of societal judgment, is gradually encouraging many women to ditch the norm and create their own fashion statement.

Korean Fashion Clothing For Trendy And Fashionable Look

Global fashion industry has a big Asian influence in the recent times, especially Korean fashion clothing. Asian countries like India, Japan, Korea, and China always had a bustling fashion segment. The fashion houses in these countries previously were able to focus on the local market but with the emergence of globalization, they are now able to reach worldwide markets. Other areas of the world are now the biggest outlet for these new age Asian fashion designers. In order to broaden their reach and increase sales, Korean fashion clothes are discovering the lucrative export market with the in distribution systems designers in these countries. Today we find Asian fashion influences in mainstream stores wherever we are in the world because of the unprecedented growth made by the Asian fashion industry. From high-end women’s wear to everyday men’s sportswear, Korean fashion clothing trends are evident throughout all segments of the fashion industry.

Borrowed heavily from the Asian designers are the contemporary designs and trends. Their trends set by the entertainment industry and designs tend to be driven by popular culture. The schoolgirl look has become increasingly popular and it was adopted by pop musicians. Comfortable styles that bring to

Evolution of the top fashion magazines today

Returning back to old days, guides like BOP and Tiger Beat were some trademark favorites for many. Thinking over images of Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Leonardo Dicaprio passed the old time . Though we still thoroughly enjoy an excellent overview of these former teenager heartthrobs every now and then, I’ve set my attractions on the sort of resources that better link with my current age segment. In my mid-twenties, I’ve changed Tiger Beat with the shiny pages of top fashion magazines, and the huge poster sized images of JTT, with templates of trendsetting items. It’s so amazing to me that these guides have motivated such a huge viewers to follow their advice on a month to month basis that I’ve decided to take a nearer look at their posting history.

Vogue

After changing possession, the US centered book went worldwide in the 1920’s creating major success in countries like Spain, Great Britain, France and Italy.

s Mens Fashion Trends

In the 1960s, fashion really kicked off with the introduction to many new and diverse trends. You can easy determine trends from the early, middle and end of the decade. Traditional, conforming man’s attire was lost due to social changes. Throughout the 60s, the focal point in fashion was the uprising of bright colors and tones. The changes in the fashion of this time were more so than any other time previous. This renaissance in fashion was influenced heavily by Italian designers and by the Modernist, Hippie and Edwardian styles of dress.

The British & the Modernist Movement

At the forefront of style in the 60s were the British. The modernist movement came about at the beginning of the era, allowing young men to push boundaries and make way for the many new trends that would follow. It was all about moving away from the ‘lack of style’ in the 50s and experimenting with psychedelic prints and gregarious patterns. No man wanted to be seen in dull and pale shades. No! It was time to add color and plenty of it, the brighter and more flamboyant the better. It wasn’t uncommon to see frills and cravats

How The Sa 8000 And Other Standards Are Shaking Up The Fashion Industry

Environmental, social and ethical pressures on the global textiles and fashion sector emerged in Europe in the early 1980s. The main driver was consumer concern over the safety of the materials. However, in parallel with this trend, a minority group of ethical consumers demanded chemical-free and low environmental impact clothing and fashion goods. This resulted in the European and later the U.S. organic labeling system being extended to include criteria for clothing and textiles, such as organic cotton. As of 2007, the sector was the fastest growing part of the global cotton industry with growth of more than 50% a year. Regarding safety standards, the Oeko-Tex standard has become highly popular in the industry. Although unknown to consumers, it tests for chemicals such as flame retardants in clothes and categorizes goods according to their likely exposure to humans (e.g. baby clothes must adhere to the strictest standards for chemicals). Thus the issue of chemicals in clothing has become largely one of liability risk control for the industry with the consumers obviously expecting products to pose no risk to their health. Organic and eco fashion and textiles attracts a far smaller, but fast growing group of consumers, largely in

Sean John Combs Fashion

Hip-hop fashion is a distinctive style of dress originating with African-American youth in The 5 Boroughs (New York City), and later influenced by the hip-hop scenes of Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, East Bay (San Francisco Bay Area), Detroit, and The Dirty South among others. But hip-hop fashion wouldnt be the fashion known today without the helping hand of a man called The Shiny Suit Man.

The rise of hip-pop in the late-1990s, primarily the work of Sean “Diddy” Combs, known locally around New York at that time as the “Shiny Suit Man” brought elements such as loud, flashy PVC aviator inspired suits and platinum jewelry to the forefront of hip hop in an effort to add a new vivid dimension of color and flash to the videos produced as a marketing tool.

Combs, who started his own sean john clothing line, and clothing manufacturers such as Karl Kani and FUBU brought hip hop fashion to the mainstream, resulting in a multi-million dollar hip hop fashion industry. But who is Sean John Combs? And what was his contribution to the ever growing hip-hop fashion?

Tracking The Changing Fashion Trends With The Current Consumer Consciousness

Out of curiosity, what is the fashion element this year

In my former articles, I mentioned some fashion elements this year, such as stripes and lace. And today I will introduce another chic for you. In this season, the bold colors prevailed in 70s show a recovery trend, many famous designers seem to favor the chemical collision results from the match of different bright colors. We can see this trend through the fashion shows of many brands.

In the 2011 spring/summer series, Jill Sander integrated minimalist into clothing by applying blocking of pure shades and contrast colors. Pants with ultra high waist, matched with baggy man’s trench coat, enriched the general idea. Moschino’s little jacket and 9-length pants in classical design, matched with the wild cowboy hat flawlessly. The striking visual compact from the collocation of pure red and blue purple is due to not only the fashion and fabric, but also suitable length ratio of jacket and trousers. Emilio Puccini nevertheless continues the Greek style. Under the contrast with the coral suit jacket, the light gem-blue vest is especially conspicuous.

As being a brand that constantly keeps updating according to consumers’ specifications, it is no doubt that you will find the latest trend on Karen
