Dream Away!

For at fortsætte hvor jeg slap i forrige indlæg. . . Hvordan  drømmer du om at din brudekjole skal se ud ? Hvilken type er du?

Er du den klassiske type, der lægger mere vægt på stil end mode, kan du sik- kert identificerer dig med stilikoner som f.eks. Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn og Jacqueline Kennedy.

Er du den moderne type, som er fremadskuende og kan lide at skille  dig ud.  Typen der som regel er ukonventionel og har en bestemt idé om hvordan hun gerne vil fremstå.

Eller er du individualisten, der har et stort behov for at udtrykke dig selv frem for alt. Er du typen som har din egen stil og vil gå meget langt for at udleve drømmen for det ultimative fashion statement, nu hvor lejligheden byder sig.

Måske er du romantikeren, som opfatter livet som et eventyr og griber mulig- heden for at realisere sine dybeste drømme. Du er fascineret af af skabe en overjordisk vision fyldt af magi og skønhed. Det er som regel i form af kjoler med overdådigt slæb, store tylskørter og corsager.

Eller måske er du minimalisten, den selvsikre brud, som foretrækker enkle og rene linjer uden overflødig pynt. Her gælder det at, less is more. Bruden der formår at fastholde dette elegante og hårfine udtryk, vil ofte fremstå som et stærkt fashion statement.

Det er altid spændende at finde frem til personligheden og skabe den ulti- mative kjole, til alles tilfredshed.

WEDDINGDRESSES

The weddingseason is getting closer. In Denmark most couples are getting married in the periode from may to september.

Due to planning it is of course nessesary to be right on time, especially when it comes to ordering the weddingdress. Take a look at this little selection of simpel, but different weddingdresses in special fabrics, for inspiration.

The first weddingdress has an empirecut and a moderat train. It is made of dupionsilk underlined with silkorgandy and brocade with a matching velvet ribbon, to emphasize the cut. This unique weddingdress is only available in size 6 (str. 36)





This corsetdress is made of "golden brocade" and can easily be used as sim- pel, but stylish weddingdress with a nice veil and the right accessories. This dress is only available in size 6 (str.36)




Pale rose weddingdress with a train, made of bridalsatin and decorated  with transparent sequins and beads. This dress is only available in size 12 (str. 42)




Weddingdress with pale mink, a bare back with ribbons and a train, made of off-white bridalsatin. Only available in size 6  (str. 36)

Each of these dresses can of course be measure-made, if you would like to purchase one of them.

PROJECT RUNWAY Vs THE FASHION SHOW


The most popular reality Design competition is running. Of course it is the 6th season of Project Runway, that Bravo initially launched.  The Competition already took place last year, but is first shown here now at TV3.
This season of  Project Runway, season7 was already launched the 14 of januar 2010. But it will probably first show next year.

But of course you can follow it here on Lifetime. Lifetime took over Project Runway two years ago, after a trial against NBC/Universal, the owners of Bravo. the Producers simply got a better offer.

After that,  Bravo launched The Fashion Show, as a pendant to Project Runway, with American designer, Isaac Mizrahi and Kelly Rowland from Destiny´s child as hosts, as well as Fern Mallis, the woman behind New York Fashion Week, as a fellow judge.


Project Runway has until now been going on in New York, but was for once moved to Los Angeles. The number of participants was from the start 16 talented- and hopeful designers, but are now down to  6 and the compe- tition is getting harder.
Every time the Designers get a new assignment, that they have to solve within very limited time and a fair amount of money to use.


From time to time they get evaluated by a permanent panel of judges, con- taining of, Heidi Klum, top-american designer, Michael Kors and Editor in chief of Marie Claire, Nina Garcia, as well as a new guest-judge every time.
The three remaining participants have to design a collection to be shown at New York Fashion Week.
Here the final winner will be elected. The winner will be mentioned over several pages in Marie Claire and win 100.000,- $ for financing their own collection.

I follow the series as often as possible, because it is fun, but also very in- spiring on a professional level. The Concept is well planned and seems serious. the Participants get some nice challenges and is being supervised by Tim Gunn, who for many years was at Parsons, The New School for Design, but now is a Creative director at Liz Clairborne Inc.

On the other hand, The Fashion Show seems very superficial and not very well worked through. They promote it as "real fashion for real people".
Mizrahi and Kelly Rowland, who doesn´t seem to have any knowledge of fashion at all, are walking around among the designers and commenting, while they work. -But not as serious and constructive as Tim Gunn on Project Runway.
In return they have invited an audience of industy-people to watch the show and are using their comments in the judgement together with a guest-judge.

Season two of The Fashion Show have been filmed this year, but will most probably first show here next year. Until now, I´m not impressed though. Project Runway is and will probably be my favourite.

Latest news from this reality-world is, that Chris March, who did a fabulous collection in season 4, dressed Maryl Streep for The Oscars.

The Academy Awards


Den 7. marts var tiden så endelig kommet. Årets Oscars skulle for 82-ens- tyvende gang uddeles. Begivenheden fandt sted i The Kodak Theatre i Hollywood, hvor den bedste film, de bedste skuespillere, producere m.fl. skulle kåres.

Dette er begivenheden for alverdens designere og modehuse, hvor de får super eksponering, hvis deres kreationer bliver vist på den røde løber. Det gælder så om at klæde de rigtige stjerner på i den helt rigtige kjole. Ikke alle slap lige godt fra det. Men vurdér selv!

Du kan se hvem de bedste og værst klædte er ifølge msn´s Wonderwall. Jeg er bestemt ikke enig i alle deres vurderinger. Men det er jo smag og behag.
Tv-stationen ABC´s hjemmside viser også alle kjolerne og ser tilbage på forgangne tiders designs.
Vil du vide mere om historien bag The Oscars, kan du se det på deres officielle hjemmeside The Academy of motion picture arts and sciences.

Sandra Bullock vandt sin første Oscar for "The blind side" i en flot Marchesa- model med slæb, bestående af sølvlamé og -blonde.
