Fashion In a Spray-Can

Coca Cola fashion! No, not really but it is clothing that sprays out of a can. It’s called Fabrican Spray-On Fabric and the reason it has been created is for all those who can never get clothing tight enough or to fit ‘just right’! The idea comes from Imperial College London researchers and a company called Fabrican.

The couture sprays out by use of aerosol technology, which ‘creates a thin layer of light, textured, nonwoven fibers that have the look of interconnected snowflakes.’

What’s even more amazing is that ‘the sprayed fabric can be peeled off, washed, worn again, perfumed, and even decorated to create patterns’. Almost hard to believe it can do that considering that it comes out of a can and vaguely resembles silly string. In any case, it sounds interesting!

Who knows what they’ll think of next?

Asian Designers Are Like Dreams






You don’t think they exist but they do. It could also be that we were overwhelmed and ecstatic about “Rosestudio” GUO Pei High Class Fashion Show 2010. Guo Pei’s sense of design and fashion is revolutionary and even though we know the show happened sometime ago, we have to express our utmost respect and appreciation for its originality and delicate beauty. If we were artists, we would wear these to every performance.

It’s like Leonardo da Vinci was reincarnated as Guo Pei and decided to try his hand at being a designer.

The third dress is our favourite. Now we’re just thinking about how to make them for ourselves!

The Future Of The Red Carpet Dress?



Makes you think where designers find the inspiration for amazing dresses like these. In actuality, these were part of Viktor and Rolf’s Spring 2010 runway. Personally, we like the delicate layering and strong lines. It gives an overall picture of innovation and individuality to each piece.

It’s like Alice In Wonderland meets Edward Scissorhands!

Agyness Deyn Is So Versatile In Pictures

La Femme features Agyness Deyn with short dark hair for February 2010. She’s like Jennifer Garner in Alias. She can pull off anything.

God we hate (and love her) so jealously.

Guess Dior Makes Everything!

Check out those Dior snowboots Geri Halliwell’s sported this week. They’re kinda nice!

Experimental Audiovisual By Student Designer




Looks like fashion photography to us. Student Designer Anna Daubner came up with this for her editorial debut. Amazing! The last outfit looks kind of Gaga-esque, non?

Reese Witherspoon’s Brilliant Idea

Elle Woods Reese Witherspoon recently discussed clothes swapping soirées she holds with her female friends.

“There are three of us who wear pretty much the same size, so we’ll get together on a Friday night and I’ll bring clothes I want to trade and they’ll bring theirs. We swap shoes and handbags a lot. I wore my girlfriend’s dress to a wedding recently. It’s fun.”

We’ve done this before actually but unfortunately, they were not soirées so this is actually a great idea!

There’s no need to go to the mall and you never have to get bored with your wardrobe because you’ll always have something fun and different to wear and if you don’t, trade with a friend!

Lindsay Lohan?!?!

Unfortunately not.

It’s actually former girlfriend of DJ AM, model Jessica Stam with Chloë Sevigny attending Women’s Health Down To Earth Party last May.

We need to organize a Green/Women’s Health party one day

Ever Wanted To Be Princess Tiana?

She looks like a younger Vivica A. Fox, doesn’t she?

In any case, costumecraze.com came out with a Princess Tiana costume set, which includes a dress and a tiara headband for $29.71 but no frog!

Where is our Prince Naveen!

Never Had A Barbie Like A Gaga

Old bore Barbie no more! Barbie with something of the Gaga persuasion yes! And we can all thank 29-year-old Viek who copied these Gaga looks incredibly well..not even too well…perfectly!

Barbie gone all Gaga, we love it

She’s the kind of independent woman that women and even men should be able to look at and find inspiration from. This does necessarily mean copy her in her dress but to understand that taking risks or ‘wearing kermits’ is all a part of being comfortable in one’s own skin and experimenting with your own boundaries in the search of finding out who you are and want to be.

Coco or Coco?

As you might know, there were two films released this last year that paid tribute to the late Coco Chanel. One was Coco Avant Chanel with Audrey Tatou and the other was Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky. However, lepoint.fr states that Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky is more about Igor than Coco. This particular film that debuted recently in France on December 30 paints Coco Chanel as an inspiration to Igor and as such, is credited for renewed success of Igor’s music. However, they are also depicted as ”two sacred monsters”, separate entities who refuse to leave their ‘ivory towers’. We see Coco’s grace and elegance contrasted by Igor’s coldness and gruffness so ”we find it hard to stay interested in their love story when even their embraces seem rehearsed”.

Hmm, interesting focus. But if it is true that the film dealt more with Igor’s rise from the ashes, perhaps a change in title would have been more appropriate? We will admit that we have only seen Coco Avant Chanel and though it was interesting, shows Coco in a more subdued, shaded light. We don’t see her as the woman who generously offered Igor and his family to stay in her villa but as a woman who came to a wealthy acquaintance’s house, earning sleeping her keep while being hidden away.

Frankly, we wish we could have seen Coco more in terms of fashion and influence but in any case, despite the depictions of the late Coco Chanel in film or by Karl, she remains an inspiration and example to women because she was able to envision and effect change in the world of fashion.

Which Coco did you prefer?

Sneak Peek #2 at V’s Plus-Size Issue. Is This Healthy?




The models that have been chosen for the highly anticipated issue# 63 of V look timeless in these pictures done by Karl and Co. They also have faces similar to those seen in fashion mags and wear high fashion clothes provided by major fashion labels, so in effect they look very super. While we do love this new plus-size teaser before the issue’s release on Jan 14, we can’t help but think about how much plus is healthy and how much is plus?

Skeleton is not healthy but neither is obesity so we spoke with health and medical professionals who shared that

Being heavy on top and heavy on the bottom is ok (health-wise though not for backs or knees among other joints) HOWEVER, if a woman is over 80cm in waist-size (85 for Japanese women), they risk cardiovascular disease, diabetes and are at risk for metabolic syndrome. Men should not be over 90cm (80 for Japanese men).

So, we hope that people everywhere do accept themselves for the body they have but should keep in mind that health is more important than body image (On a side note, Japanese really do have a different bone structure so the women do have that leeway though that number for men was unexpected!

(What’s up with there only being one model of colour too?)
