Fashion-Charity HAND TO HAND

23 Sep

La diseñadora Londinense Vivienne Westwood presento su colección en Londres y fue magnifica! La autora del vestido en el cual Carrie Bradshaw es abandonada en el altar no decepciono con una colección simplemente hermosa. Fiel a su creencia y amor por la tierra, por lo básico su colección tiene un sentimiento muy natural. A su vez fiel a lo que la primavera del 2012 presentara la combinación de estampados con colores y tonalidades de diferente colores predomino la pasarela. La simplicidad rige esta colección y hasta sus trajes mas elaborados se ven frescos, naturales y simples. Lo mas hermoso de esta colección fue la carta presentada a sus invitados. La carta en Ingles la traduciré párrafo por párrafo. Es importante amar a la moda, es importante que la moda refleje la realidad del mundo y a su vez una visión un estilo. Pero lo mas importante es que la moda cree importancia para ayudar a las diferentes caridades que se esfuerzan en ayudar a diferentes personas. La moda no es frívola es un agente que debe transmitir un mensaje importante y Vivienne hace esto muy bien.

Aquí la carta seguida por la colección!

“Most of you know that I’ve always used my fashion shows as a platform for my belief in the importance of social justice and the urgent need to fight climate change. Tonight I introduce the Rainforest charity, Cool Earth, and a campaign that is very close to my heart- a plan to save the most vulnerable Rainforest areas by 2020.

La mayoría de ustedes saben que uso mis desfiles de moda como una plataforma para mostrar mis creencias en la importancia de justicia social y la urgencia en pelear por los derechos del clima.Esta noche les presento una caridad para la selva, COOL EARTH, y una campana muy cercana a mi Corazón donde planeo salvar las áreas mas vulnerables de la selva para el 2020.

 We must begin today- tomorrow is too late. Governments have been talking about saving the Rainforest for 40 years. Now, only half of it is left. Since launching in 2007, Cool Earth has worked with indigenous Rainforest people to protect 2.5 million acres in the Western Amazon and block the advance of illegal logging- the first stage in most Rainforest destruction. We plan to extend this effective community-lead model along the most critical arcs of deforestation in the Amazon, the Congo Basin and Borneo- the groundwork has already been laid. We need your help to continue. I am personally supporting Cool Earth and investing in our future. Tonight marks the start of our fundraising campaign for Cool Earth- we will have the official launch in November. I’m inviting my friends, celebrities and everyone interested in saving our beautiful world to join me. Think about getting involved.”

Debemos empezar hoy ya que mañana es muy tarde. Los gobiernos tienen 40 anos salvando la selva. Hoy solo su mitad existe. Desde el lanzamiento de COOL EARTH en el 2007, la misma ha trabajado con tribus indígenas de las selvas del amazona para proteger 2.5 millones de hectáreas y bloquear el avance de diversas actividades ilegales las cuales son la causa de la destrucción del mismo. Nuestro plan es extender una comunidad efectiva que a su vez sirva para un modelo a seguir en las áreas de desforestación en el Amazona, El Congo y Basin y Borneo. Necesitamos tu ayuda para continuar. Yo personalmente apoyo esta institución por que la misma invierte en nuestro futuro. Esta noche marca el comienzo para recolectar dinero para la campana de COOL EARTH la cual oficialmente lanzaremos en noviembre. Invitos a mis amigos he interesados en unirse a salvar este hermoso mundo. Piensa sobre involucrarte!

London base designer Vivienne Westwood presented her spring 2012 collection in London and it was mesmerizing. The author of the dress that Carrie Bradshaw wore as Mr. Big never showed up didn’t disappoint, the runway was plain beautiful. Faithfull to her personality Westwood’s love for earth and nature showed giving an earthy natural feeling to her clothes. At the same time, following what will be the trend for spring 2012 simplicity took a big role in the collection. Even her most elaborate outfits, her nightdresses, which are the epiphany of elegance, are simple. Also various vibrant colors were combined with different print and the missed matching vibe keeps on showing. Nevertheless what was the most beautiful was the letter Vivienne presented to her guest during her fashion show. The letter below along with pictures of her collection; I considered to be important to love fashion, to have fashion be a mirror of what the world is today. I think it’s important for fashion to translate a vision, a passion I believe its art. But what its most important in fashion is the awareness it can cause in others. To send the message that it’s not frivolous and that it’s important to believe in helping other. Vivienne does this quiet well!

Serendipity Loves London and Reviews its Fashion!

One of my favorite cities ever is London! In fact it is in my TOP 5 destinations that everyone should visit! The vibe this city offers is unique, its people are divine and its fashion has always set a trend mark. To an extent London’s fashion evaporates a late 60s mostly 70s fume. In fact during these decades London was the predominant force of fashion, it was the city that influenced and inspired all others. But as in life everything is cyclical, London lost its momentum and others cities gained it! Nevertheless a few years back Karl Lagerfeld presented some of his many collections in London to give the city back its fashion essence, and this along with the arising of what might be one of the greatest and most brilliant fashion designers ever, Alexander McQueen help bring back home (London) many designers such as Burberry and Vivienne Westwood who originated in this marvelous city. Also I think that Duchess Katherine Middleton wearing McQueen for her royal wedding gave London base designers a higher appreciation globally, all which is fairly presented during this London Spring 2012 Fashion Week! Here I leave you 26 beautiful designs from some fabulous designers!

London Fashion Week presents similitudes to what NYC fashion week presented for the upcoming season; simplicity even with the most electric fabrics of those filled with sequences was very present! Also the non-matching fabric patterns reigns’ diverse collection with vibrant colors. Yet something peculiar about LFW was the symmetry of the outfits. Most cut presented were straight lines with tons of symmetrical alignment in the elaboration of the outfits, yet with little burden therefore emphasizing on simplicity. Obviously all of them enjoy of a groovy vibe to them!

Designers: Thomas Tait, Christopher Kane, Pringle of Scotland, Michael van der Ham, Todd Lynn, Temperley London, Marios Schwab, Burberry, Paul Smith, Niccole Farhi, Peter Pilotto, Kinder Aggugini, Basso & Brooke, Peter Jensen, Mary Katrantzou, Jean-Pierre Braganza, Holly Fulton, Giles, Erdem, Richard Nicoll (Favorite), Ann-Sofie Back Atelje, Matthew Williamson, Acquascutum, Antonio Berardi, J.W. Anderson and David Coma.

Una de mis ciudades favoritas, de hecho creo que está en mi TOP 5 favorite cities ever, es Londres. La vibra que esta ciudad ofrece es única, su gente es deliciosamente agradable y su moda siempre ha marcado pauta. A cierto modo en Londres siempre se respira una vibra que refleja la moda al final de los 60s, y duradera de los 70s. Durante estas épocas Londres fue el predominio de la moda mundial y fue la ciudad que llevo la batuta de la moda, pero como todo en esta vida es cíclico perdió momento a medida que otros grandes imperios de la moda surgían. Sin embargo hace algunos años, varios diseñadores incluyendo el legendario Karl Lagerfeld presento una de sus colecciones en la ciudad para que la misma reviviera su momento en moda y esto conjunto al surgimiento de lo que puede ser el diseñador mas brillante en las ultimas décadas Alexander McQueen, ayudo a que muchos diseñadores londinenses volviera a su ciudad de origen a presentar sus colecciones, Burberry, Vivienne WestWood los mas importantes. A su vez creo un fenómeno de diseñadores emergentes en el gremio de la moda que presentan colecciones deliciosas! El hecho que la Duquesa Catalina Middleton usara un vestido de novia hecho por McQueen para su majestuosa boda real ayudo a crear una apreciación global importante para los diseñadores londinenses lo cual se refleja en esta temporada. Acá les dejo 26 looks de London Spring 2012 Fashion Week!

Para la próxima temporada Londres a similitud a lo que se presento en NYC Fashion Week, se ve la simplicidad hasta en las telas mas eléctricas o con mas secuencias. La descombinación de estampados y colores vibrantes rige una tendencia pero algo que Londres goza es la simetría de los atuendos. Bastantes cortes rectos, simétricos pero a su vez simples y poco cargados. Claro todo esto goza de una onda “groovy”!

Diseñadores: Thomas Tait, Christopher Kane, Pringle of Scotland, Michael van der Ham, Todd Lynn, Temperley London, Marios Schwab, Burberry, Paul Smith, Niccole Farhi, Peter Pilotto, Kinder Aggugini, Basso & Brooke, Peter Jensen, Mary Katrantzou, Jean-Pierre Braganza, Holly Fulton, Giles, Erdem, Richard Nicoll (Favorita), Ann-Sofie Back Atelje, Matthew Williamson, Acquascutum, Antonio Berardi, J.W. Anderson and David Coma.
