We are 4 weeks from spring and the question is: what is going to be the spring/summer trends?

We all know that florals never gets old but we want something different for this season. Here are some ideas of how not go wrong with your spring outfit!

One of the colors that will be a trend for the season is the shocking pinks. Bright pinks, candy pinks will be a good color to have in your closet. Just in case you don’t think the bright is what you want you have the options of light pinks as well as nude.

The street style has been grown the past 2 years. Each day we see more new brands with the street style on the runways. Another trend this spring will be the urban sports style parkas with light materials like nylon.

Last but not least and my favorite trend this spring, will be stripes, geometric prints and a lots of colors.

A former Versace store clerk is suing the luxury fashion house on the grounds of discrimination. The clerk is accusing a Versace store in the San Francisco Bay Area of using a secret “black code” to indicate that a black shopper has entered the store. In the 30-page lawsuit, “…the manager instructed the plaintiff to say ‘D410’ in a casual manner when a black person entered the store…[to] alert co-workers.” TMZ reported the clerk had been fired only weeks after telling the manager he was African-American. The clerk also claims to have been told he lost his

position because he hadn’t “lived the luxury life.” He is suing for unpaid wages and damages. Versace, of course, has denied the allegations and have requested a dismissal of the suit. As you may recall, Versace was accused of racism earlier this year. The fashion house was scrutinized for what appears to be a promotion for teen pregnancy in an ad featuring Gigi Hadid.

Franca Sozzani, 1950 – 2016

December 23rd, 2016   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

After battling a long illness, Vogue Italia editor-in-chief has passed away at the age of 66. Sozzani is described as “one of the greatest editors who ever made a magazine,” a “trail blazer and a True Rebel,” and “warm, clever, funny.” In 2008, Sozzani produced an “all black” issue, featuring black models only. The issue was an international hit!  Sozzani was also a goodwill ambassador to fashion for the UN and helped fashion workers in Africa and Asia in raising money to fight hunger. US Vogue editor Anna Wintour had this to say, “She made everything she worked on appear effortless, regardless of whether it was an event for several hundred; a whirlwind trip to Africa to support the continent’s emerging designers; or the creation of yet another newsworthy, provocative, and utterly spellbinding issue of Italian Vogue.” Sozzani was also the recipient of the Swarovski award for positive change. NYCTastemakers offers our condolences to Sozzani’s family and friends.

She loved to constantly create and keep her mind busy. While her mother always imagined her taking over the family dental business she knew that wasn’t for her. People would constantly look to her for fashion advice and her family would insist she take up fashion as her major in college but to her it was a dime a dozen.

Star Trek bring fashion into the world!

June 3rd, 2016   admin  Uncategorized   No Comments »

Want to show your love for Star Trek while looking gorgeous at the beach? The geek-loving geniuses over at ThinkGeek have finally created a line of swimwear to let fans engage in a little Star Trek cosplay on their next trip
to the beach and proudly display their love of The Next Generation.

fashion-2The new additions to the Trek lineup from the geek-inspired Fairfax, Va.-based company are far from the only wearables available to the masses. In fact, everything from baby onesies to oven mitts and pajamas can be found along with t-shirts, sweatshirts and a bit of everything else. The initial Star Trek: TNG Trekini lineup includes pieces for fans of the engineering (red), science (blue) and command (gold) ranks as well as a “cover-up romper” and a swim shirt in the unique style of Enterprise counselor Deanna Troi. The new pieces range from $39.99 to $59.99, but they are far from the only clothing options for Trekkers. (And clearly somebody out there interested because this new line was trending on Facebook today.)
