Famous Male Fashion Designers

images17

In recent years men’s fashion has become increasingly popular, and a heightened awareness means that many men are known to be selective when it comes to choosing which clothes to buy, and from which designers to choose from. With many men’s designers tending to have signature looks, this is only helping men to become more distinguished in terms of fashion sense. Of all the designers that exist, which are the biggest of all menswear designers?

We couldn’t go on without a nod (or an Ode) to probably the biggest men’s fashion designers of them all – Mr Giorgio Armani. The Armani brand is considered widely as fashion royalty, and has fast become a household name, synonymous with men’s fashion. Armani’s signature lines and fragrances have stood the test of time, yet the Armani brand is as popular now in contemporary circles as it has ever been.

Another stalwart of men’s fashion is Ralph Lauren. His US-based label started out in the early 1970’s and was originally a luxury brand selling sportswear and apparel for Polo and Yatching. Even today, having diversified somewhat into formal and premium casual wear, Ralph Lauren is one of the world’s largest names in men’s fashion, operating in over 180 countries.

Notable British designers have also dominated the landscape of the fashion world – for decades. Among the most prominent of those are Sir Paul Smith, knighted for his lifelong services to fashion in 2000, who is known for his classic-cut suits with a modern colours and textures. Sir Paul expanded the Paul Smith empire to include formal menswear and casual lines and in recent years even added fragrances to the brands name. Another British menswear design powerhouse, although a slightly left-field choice, is Vivienne Westwood. Having helped to define the punk era by styling the Sex Pistols, Westwood used chains, safety pins and ripped clothes amongst her designs, adding to her signature look. Her designs are popular with many notable contemporary musicians known for their alternative styles, such as Iggy Pop, Gwen Stefani and Karen O.

Other notable names in men’s fashion include designers Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Donatella Versace, the niece of the late Gianni Versace, who founded the Versace label. All are recognised throughout the fashion world and can be considered alongside other peers of note, such as the late Alexander McQueen, Jeff Banks, Jasper Conran, Heidi Slimane and Jill Sander.

When I am shopping for shoes, I always look for quality, comfort and style. No matter how much the shoes will cost me, as long as I know they will give me the things that my feet need, then I will surely buy women’s designer shoes. One time my niece asked me, “why most of your friends always go for those shoe where as they’re so expensive?” and it made me think for a little while. So I am going to answer her question through this article. What makes designer shoes so most-wanted?

We can’t deny the fact that women are so wanting designer shoes so bad. It’s either because they love to wear it, or because they want to be fashionably in. But what makes these shoes in demand to women? Although the prices are so expensive, yet many women love to have one. Let us sight some of the facts about designers shoes and what makes women crave to own them.

1.) They are made as if they are made especially for you. They are made not just for nothing. They serve a purpose in every person who will use them. They are made not just to be worn, but also be used in a specific way.

2.) They are made from a high-quality materials. Quality is the magic word for this kind of shoes. When you buy shoes, you always want them to last not just for days or months, but for years. That is one good thing about designer shoes that most women are looking forward to.

3.) They are made to be trusted. Designers are not only selling shoes just to make money, but they want people to trust them as well. Yes, there are a lot of shoes, but which one is trustworthy enough to give you the quality and comfort that you want? You can be sure of the quality of the materials used for the shoes as well as the workmanship involved in making the product.

4.) They always assure durability. When buying shoes, we want to buy one that is durable. We don’t buy shoes that cost thousands of dollars only to find out that a day of using it- the color fades, the heels crack or the straps break. Designer shoes make sure that there is an exchange of great value to your money.

You can not have a designer shoes for $50 or even $100, expect that the prices are always high. But because women nowadays are enjoying a lot of different styles and are looking for something that make them unique, then no matter how much the price is, they won’t mind at all. Designer shoes are well worth the money. What makes designer shoes to be most wanted? They are worthy be owned.

Designers With Day Jobs, Marni, Etc.

Have you ever wondered how it is that haute couture fashion houses such as Marni, Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester make money? One possible answer: by being open to opportunities.

Designing uniforms

Earlier this week, the staff at Kensington Palace unveiled their new uniforms, which were designed by high-end British fashion label Jaeger. Won’t be long before Prince William and Kate Middleton can take up residence alongside the gold-trimmed staff.

Antwerp, Belgium-based designer Dries Van Noten may not produce uniforms, but he sure seems to have been inspired by them. Some of his most recent looks have been described as military.

Designing accessories

Dries Van Noten’s peplum pants may have been the talk of Paris during Fashion Week this spring, but one suspects that his shades, which have also been generating a lot of buzz, may outperform the peplum pants at the cash register.

Designing special lines for big-name retailers

Consuelo Castiglioni of Italian fashion house Marni recently designed a capsule wardrobe for Swedish clothing giant, H&M. A capsule collection is a small number of pieces that are meant to be mixed and matched.

In so doing, Marni is following in the footsteps of such designers as Walter Van Beirendonck (who, coincidentally, went to the same Antwerp fashion academy as Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester, another acclaimed Belgian designer. More about Demeulemeester below!)

Like Castiglioni of Marni, Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester’s co-alumnus, Walter Van Beirendonck designs a line of clothing for a retail chain, Belgium’s JBC.

Unlike Castiglioni of Marni, though, Van Beirendonck’s lower-end line is for children.

Designing special lines for& websites?

Ann Demeulemeester, along with Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck and several other young co-alumnni of the same influential Antwerp fashion school, broke onto the fashion scene by driving a truck filled with samples to London Fashion Week. Leave it to her to find a new way to distinguish herself in the fashion world.

In November 2011, Ann Demeulemeester released a four-piece capsule collection for sale online only.

An all-black unisex collection for Christmas time? How very Ann Demeulemeester!

Having their own shop

Ann Demeulemeester has famously refused to work for any of the major fashion houses that have reportedly offered her a job. She has been running her own shop in Antwerp for well over a decade now.

Another purely Ann Demeulemeester specialty?

This designer prefers not to advertise, relying on word of mouth alone.

It seems that in today’s economy even haute couture designers must be creative about how it is that they make money. Because man, it would seem, can not live by peplum pants alone. Marni and Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester and Walter Van Beirendonck, are all examples of labels and designers with an eye to new opportunities in a tough market.

Designer Collaborative Office Furniture

Most people think of high end home dcor stores when they think of designer furniture, but in todays competitive work environment, designer furniture is just as trendy in the office as it is at home. In fact, some of the trend-setting furniture for todays office environments concentrates on both style and function, as collaborative work spaces take center stage.

Collaborative working is becoming more prevalent in forward-thinking businesses, as chief executive officers realize that people produce better work when they are able to come together to brainstorm ideas. The traditional closed-door offices are being redesigned and office cubicles are being dismantled in favor of sleek, open, designer workspaces that encourage communication and collaboration. As companies struggle to get out of the recession, theyre reinventing themselves and the way they work. Giving employees an opportunity to work in a new and high-tech environment is a benefit that doesnt count against the bottom line.

Designer furniture for offices comes in different styles and configurations as well as in both traditional and eye-popping color schemes. Although heavy oak and mahogany desks and credenzas can still be found in penthouse offices and corporate board rooms, the newest workstations styles include built-in electronics that allow desktop videoconferencing. The only additional component needed is a laptop computer with a built-in webcam and a high-speed Internet connection. This available technology gives staff members the opportunity to get instant feedback or ideas from co-workers in other parts of the building, across the street, across the nation or around the world.

Steelcase is one of the pre-eminent manufacturers of todays designer desks, tables, chairs and workspaces. It has a family of functional furniture that turns heads and screams productivity. Low profile desks and workstations from Steelcases C:scape and Frame One lines are perennial bestsellers. Many corporate offices are chucking the walls, partitions and barriers in favor of installing these easy-to-maintain work surfaces. Another one of Steelcases sleek and stylish product s is called Media:scape. This is a combination work surface and collaborative viewing area, which supports up to six users with their laptops, iPads or other electronic devices. Each member of the team can plug in and share their material on the connected monitors, which is pretty cool.

Other fashionable, functional and cool-looking designer furniture products include whiteboards from Polyvision and Qomo which allow you to capture whatever is written on the boards and send it direct to your computer. Another designer solution is the introduction of the innovative Node chair, which has a brightly colored unique look as well as comfort quotient that is unparalleled for a casual, classroom-like chair.

Tomorrows well-dressed office environments will be looking toward sleek, designer furniture that has the ability to provide open collaboration and sharing with other workers. There are dozens of manufacturers who are at the ready to strut their stuff and become part of this collaborative revolution.

Organized by the Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Center, the Macao Fashion Parade showed Hong Kong the best of Macau local fashion designers. Presented during the Hong Kong Fashion Week 2014 Spring/Summer Collection Fashion Show, held on July 10, four Macau fashion labels (MaConsef, ZICS, Nega C and Nubiano) showcased a total of 60 items on an exclusive catwalk.
The event presents a variety of the latest fashions and accessories, displayed to 17,000 buyers from 74 countries and regions, with a total of 1,250 exhibitors from 21 countries and regions.
After the showcase, we had the opportunity to meet with both Isabella Choi, one of the Macau designers presenting her collection, and Giselle Lam, a former Miss Hong Kong pageant contestant, who was a member of the audience.
It was Isabella Chois first experience showing her creations in Hong Kong. She said that the event was a very exciting experience, and that she had really enjoyed it. Choi admitted she didnt have a clear idea of the publics reaction to her collection, as she was very nervous. Choi is the owner of a small boutique in Macau and sells her creations from there. Choi emphasized that these kinds of events are a very important opportunity for designers such as herself, as it is a unique chance for designers to show their work outside Macau and gain more attention for their work. In particular, Hong Kong is always an important market for sales due to its proximity to Macau.
Giselle Lam, 2011 Miss Hong Kong pageant contestant, commented that she was surprised by the collections presented by the Macau fashion designers, as this was the first time they were showcased in an event of this scale. Lam confessed that there were several pieces that amazed her, especially in the MaConsef by CPPTM collection. This was due to the fact that they showed a lot of creativity whilst still retaining the ability to be wearable. In Lams opinion, this is the most important factor in fashion. Lam particularly admired the nightgowns presented by Nubiano brand, confessing that she frequently wears them in her daily working life. Lam believes that usually cuts can be too formal and straight and felt that the collection presented alternative cuttings to suit a ladys silhouette, which she found very impressive.

All About Designer Bedding

images5

Designer bedding can be very expensive, but many believe it is well worth the price. A designer pair of sheets typically has a very high thread count. It may also be made of premium Egyptian cotton or even silk. The silk is often the highest grade and is imported from Italy or Thailand. In some instances the silk is hand-spun. The dyes that are used are of the highest quality.

You can buy designer bedding sets in many of the high-end department and retail stores. There are also boutiques and specialty retail shops that sell the items. In some instances you can find designer bedding online, but you will want to make sure that you are buying it through a reputable retailer. You will want to start with the designer own website. They will direct you to retailers that are authorized to sell their goods.

The purchase of this extravagant bedding can be costly, so you will want to choose a set that you will love for years to come. It is a good idea to choose a color palette that blends with your bedrooms, but does not have overwhelming colors. You may grow tired of very loud, bold colors. It is best to feature loud colors in pillows and accent pieces around your room. These can easily be replaced should you want to change colors.

Designer bedding is usually a higher quality than what you would in most low-end stores. Keep in mind, however, that if the bedding is damaged in any way it will be far more expensive to replace. You may want to have a standard everyday set of sheets that compliments the high-end comforter. This will insure that your set last as long as possible, you will also want to consider having the set professionally laundered. There are services that specifically handle bedding. Placing your bedding in a standard washing machine and dryer may damage the material. You do not want the bedding to be snagged or pulled unnecessarily. In some instances using the wrong detergents can cause the fabric dye to bleed. This will ruin your bedding and should be avoided at all costs.

Designer bedding is a substantial investment, but it can make a wonderful gift. Surprise your spouse or significant other by bringing a more romantic and refined look to your bedroom – they will love it, and you will love it too!
