Vietnamese designer to join New York Couture Fashion Week

His presentation is supported by renowned Vietnamese designer Cong Tri who took part in the 2013 IFS as a consultant. At the event, Giang Tu is scheduled to introduce his collection “The Dreamers” to fashion designers and fashionistas across the world. The collection was inspired by the images of dreamers. The dreamers can only see things in black and white. Only when they are woken will their dreams take on a spectrum of colours, in other words, the youths are only truly living once their purpose in life is identified. Giang Tu’s collection is expected to add fresh impetus to the event, and at the same time highlight Vietnam’s fast developing fashion industry. IFS, organised by the British Council and the British Fashion Council, is one of London Fashion Week’s activities to encourage and honour the work of emerging international fashion designers. During the past two years, more than 200 fashion designers from 40 countries have taken part in this prestigious and inspiring event. London Fashion Week is one of the four biggest fashion shows alongside those in New York, Milan and Paris.... [read more]

New York Fashion Week ended Thursday with Ralph Lauren exploring sexy schoolgirl chic, Calvin Klein offering up a study in geometry and Marc Jacobs heading to a gothic beach wasteland. Jacobs offered a dramatic finale to the seven-day fashion frenzy with a dark, Victorian spring look as thunder and lightning crashed outside, soaking fashionistas. Leaving the Big Apple, the spring-summer 2014 style cavalcade now moves over to London, Milan and Paris. Jacobs -- the only designer to enforce a merciless punctuality to his shows -- unveiled a theatrical set with a wasteland feel to it. Models in pageboy bobs walked a runway littered with cigarette butts in oversized military jackets and long shorts. The designer put floral prints on grungy oversized jackets and sweatshirts, gave Bermuda shorts an army look and unveiled dark dresses with oversized lace sleeves and high necks that wouldn't have been out of place on a Victorian vamp. Earlier, Lauren added his own twist to one of the major trends of the season -- the classic combination of black and white -- sending out a bevy of saucy schoolgirls in short skirts and dresses with a 1960s flair. Klein's new collection was a study in geometry with loose, box-cut jackets and tops -- another key theme of the week -- and skirts given a square shape with a side hem. There was a bit of something for everyone at fashion week: masculinity was mashed with romanticism, while elegant looks took on a sporty feel. Not only…... [read more]

Marc Jacobs has delved into the rock looks of yesteryear for next spring, offering up a blur of pastels, sequins, stars and radiowave stripes for his diffusion line. From the bright blue on models' eyelids to the lightning-jagged patterns on dresses and giant star motifs, the electrifying look for Marc by Marc Jacobs was unveiled in a large, brightly lit industrial building alongside the Hudson River. Models walked to the energising sound of Jeffrey Lewis' WWPRD (What Would Pussy Riot Do) - an ode to the female activist Russian punk rock group. Two members have been jailed over a church protest. Shiny satin varsity jackets and dresses had a 1950s feel while a jumpsuit made entirely out of sequins was a throwback to the 1980s. Pants were slouchy, and several shiny dresses had large stars in silver or black snaking up the side. Female models had scarves tied tightly around their hair and necks, while some wore guitar pick necklaces. It was the first of two outings for Jacobs this week -- he shows his main line on Thursday, the last day of New York's fashion parade. Clean-cut American label J.Crew - a favourite of first lady Michelle Obama - sent brightly clad beachgoers to a 1900s Venetian resort in its new spring collection. Chief women's wear designer Tom Mora gave casual wear an infusion of old-world sophistication, layering a blue blazer with white piping over a floral jumpsuit, or pairing a billowing white skirt - modestly falling to the…...

NEW YORK CITY, New York - The fashion world takes over New York from Thursday, as industry heavyweights and several newcomers unveil their lines for next spring, and one designer stages the first show for plus-sized women. As the days begin to shorten in the Big Apple, the city can bask a little longer in the warmth as designers look ahead to spring-summer 2014 during Fashion Week. Celebrities and fashionistas will flock to the city for some 350 shows that will draw more than 100,000 guests for the event, which runs through September 12. The style spotlight will then swing over to London, Milan and Paris. Two-thirds of Fashion Week events have spilled out of New York's official Lincoln Center tents, with runways springing up everywhere from the High Line park to Chelsea art galleries and hotel rooftops. And with so much fashion to take in and so little time, about 20 designers decided to get an early start, showing their collections on Wednesday in other spots around the city. The official event traditionally starts with Nicholas K, who will show his latest collection on Thursday. New York Fashion Week - which prides itself on showing "the most internationally diverse group of established and emerging talent" - will show several designers for the first time. Spanish brand Desigual, which is opening a shop on Fifth Avenue, will show here for the first time on Thursday. Britain's AllSaints will follow suit over the weekend, promising to "disrupt the format of the…... [read more]

Many young fashion designing students and even professional designers can cherish and realize their dreams at FACE, a mini workshop and school established by Japanese designer Ojo Coco two years ago. FACE, short for "Fashion, Art, Contemporary, Emotion", also sees the regular presence of several world-famed designers, who meticulously teach the students from the basic to advanced knowledge, update them with the latest techniques as well as impart to them the passion and the professional ethics. One of them is Japanese professor Shingo Sato, a world-famed designer, who is widely known for his innovative Transformational Reconstruction Cutting, which means elimination of darting through style lines, and is considered the designer who changes the world's designing and textile industry by The Financial Times. Prof. Shingo, founder of the TR Cutting School in Milan, Italy, currently lectures at prestigious fashion schools like the Central Saint Martins, Bunka Fashion, and FIT. With Prof. Shingo's meticulous, inspirational guidance, the students at FACE freely indulge in their designing passion, with most sessions being lengthened, despite the lack of space and the sweating heat in the less-than-30m2 'fashion workshop'. The Japanese expert gives the students helpful tips and secrets, such as using ballpoint pens to draw the astute angles more finely, and using duct-tapes to fix the edges of the cloth which can be shredded. After classes, Shingo usually stays at the workshop to draw paper models for each of the students. His classes also attract experienced local designers and stylists. "I'm hugely intrigued by Shingo's…... [read more]

Pep Guardiola will return to football with Bayern Munich this summer after signing a three-year contract. The German giants announced on Wednesday they had won the race for the coveted 41-year-old, who had been linked with a host of Europe's top clubs including Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea. Guardiola on Tuesday revealed his desire to one day coach in England, but the Spaniard's next destination will be the Bundesliga after penning a deal which ties him to the Allianz Arena until June 2016. He will replace current Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes in the summer, with the 67-year-old deciding to retire when his contract expires on June 30. Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: "Pep Guardiola is one of the most successful coaches in the world and we are sure that he can make not just Bayern, but all of German football shine." AC Milan and Paris St Germain had also been reportedly interested in Guardiola, who is on a year-long sabbatical from the game since bringing the curtain down on his record-breaking four-year stint with Barcelona last summer. Chelsea have been repeatedly linked with the man Blues owner Roman Abramovich is reputed to admire greatly, but Guardiola will no longer be an option when interim manager Rafael Benitez's stint in charge finishes at the end of the season. Bayern will be hoping Guardiola can repeat the incredible success he enjoyed at the Nou Camp, both as a player and as a coach. After coming up through the youth ranks,…... [read more]

VietNamNet Bridge - Nini Huong Nguyen is a name quite alien to Vietnamese painting circles but her works, which are on display at the "Life" exhibition at the Hanoi Fine Art Museum, are very attractive to the public. Nini Huong Nguyen was born in Vietnam. Her family moved to Europe when she was 12 years old. She graduated as the best student from the International Fashion University of Esmod. In the role of a fashion designer, she has launched many collections in the cities of fashion such as Munich, Berlin, Milan and Paris. As a model, she has worked for famous brands such as Hugo Boss, Gucci, Mango, Alberta and Dior. Not only with fashion, Nini Huong studied at the Art College in Germany and graduated as the top student of the Painting Faculty. Starting with the painting career since 2007, the 25-year-old girl has found her own style and own way in art. Exhibition "Life" at the Hanoi Museum of Fine Arts introduces 25 paintings in total 200 works by Nini Huong. A far cry from what people imagine about the life of a young international model, the paintings by Nini Huong express the profound, sophisticated looks of a young girl. Nini Huong said her works revolve around ordinary topics of the daily life, which are sometimes not worthy for others to pay attention to. But apparently, people are spinning and living too quickly in the whirlwind of everyday things. However, fertility in the paintings picture is a prominent…... [read more]
