by Rachel Yeomans | October 8th, 2009

Is Safari sexy? Can leather work in the workplace? Apparently, YES!

by Rachel Yeomans | October 8th, 2009

Ruffles, feathers, and fantastic loud colors stood out from the Spring 2010 collection by Giambattista Valli showcased during Paris Fashion Week. However, before the colors came down the runway, came the workwear.

Guy Laroche Works the Construction Industry in the Fashion World. Paris Fashion Week Review

by Rachel Yeomans | October 8th, 2009

Construction is not the industry that would purchase the clothing that Marcel Marongiu sent down the runway for the Spring 2010 collection for Guy Laroche. However, I feel that Marongiu worked the construction inspiration to create the architectural masterpieces that we saw during Paris Fashion Week.

Give the office a punch of color! I love these shift dresses with colors and construction that make me itch to start wearing them with my matte black tights and chunky marry jane colored pumps.

Andrew Gn Embellishes Paris Fashion Week

by Rachel Yeomans | October 6th, 2009

Oh Andrew Gn, how I love that you took the concept of the brooch and worked it into your Spring 2010 collection. Not only were the embellishments fantastic, so of course were the clothes. I have always had a weak spot for the white suit, and the fitted pants with the flirtation of the ruffled… Read more…

Costume National Provides the Standards Every Working Closet Needs

by Rachel Yeomans | October 6th, 2009

The Spring 2010 Costume National collection didn’t take my breath away during Paris Fashion Week. However almost all of the looks could easily be translated into the work place with a few slacks added or hemlines lengthened and a blouse or two added. I particularly like the gray kimono-style wrap top with matching skinny pants…. Read more…

by Rachel Yeomans | October 6th, 2009

I tried to pick some work looks from the spring collection from the Emanuel Ungaro Paris Fashion Week show. The following would need some serious tweaking for office-level appropriate; and I get that it’s Paris Fashion Week – at times you see full nudity. However in that nudity there still seems to be a level… Read more…
