Hbcu Fashion Students Finally Recognized | brandice Henderson

It’s a way to expose students of color to the many opportunities in fashion. This spring we partnered with McCafe to launch a Student Design Competition. The winner will collaborate with HFR and Project Runway alumni Kimberly Goldson to create the red carpet look for the McDonald’s 11th annual 365Black Awards host Janell Snowden. The competition for the awards was stiff, but a winner emerged: TraVonne Walker from Bowie State University. We sat down to ask TraVonne a few questions about winning the award: TraVonne Walker, fashion student from Bowie State University HFR: Congratulations, TraVonne.

The truth is that I love it, its totally different and super-cosmopolitan and also has the side of living life, which I love, added Sarda. LR- Tell us a bit about the show tonight We have called our fashion presentation Carpe Diem which means enjoy the moment! Because we must learn to savor every moment in life, even when we are working. Life is all about how you approach it, said Sarda. We envisioned our show in Vegas (divided it into two parts) – the first part, we place the woman like she is going out to dinner. The palette of colors will be pink, purple, green and blue with details in crystals of Swarovski, feathers and fringes. Then comes the Disco moment, in black and gold with crystals of Swarovski toothat explosion that took the collection to the fullest of enjoying the moment!” “The fabrics are made by the finest European artisans.

After a brief step away from the red carpet scene, our fave BFF (in our minds, at least) has returned to our fashion radar. Jennifer Lawrence has been racking up some major fashion miles the past few weeks promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past, but this week she took a break from her hectic schedule to step out in style for the Cannes Film Festival Vanity Fair And Armani Party. Photo credit: Dave M. Benett/VF14/WireImage/Getty Images You all know my feelings on jumpsuits and I’m utterly excited to see one of my fashion idols, JLaw, rocking such a sleek black version. Hers featured a plunging neckline, a loose fit and a cinched waist (thanks to a wide metallic gold belt), but the excitement didn’t end there.

Miami Fashion Week 2014: Carpe Diem by Andres Sarda – Miami Celebrity Fashion | Examiner.com

Photography: Dan Kullberg By the end of the 1990s, when international designers were still putting large logos on their products, Swedish designers were focusing on creating functional clothes that you could move in – a development to do with Swedish society at large, explains curator Cia Jansson. On show: designs from V Ave Shoe Repair (2008), AltevaiSaome (2013), The Local Firm (2012/2013) and J.Lindeberg (2014). Photography: Dan Kullberg The emerging group of architects, chefs and designers no longer flirted with countries abroad. They looked at their own backyard for inspiration, and started designing for their own market. Pictured: V Ave Shoe Repair (2010). Photography: Dan Kullberg On the rooftop of the museum, the next generation of designers are also on display.
