21st CENTURY TRUNK SHOW AT SALVATORE FERRAGAMO

SALVATORE FERRAGAMO VIRTUAL TRUNKSHOW - SPRING 2014 - THE NEXT BEST THING TO BEING IN A FASHION BOUTIQUEDesigner Trunk Shows are an American tradition that helped to establish U.S. as the marketplace for luxury goods after WWII.  In fact, the U.S. shopper and the Trunk Show helped create the fashion world as we know it today.   American socialites and celebrities were privy to exclusive previews of next season's fashion months before the items were offered to the public.  Oftentimes, the same items worn on the runway were sent directly to the stores for the preview event.  These advance reserves, and even advance purchases helped department stores and the fashion houses budget accordingly and forecast their business with guaranteed sales commitments. 

SALVATORE FERRAGAMO SPRING 2014 COLLECTION PREVIEWFast forward half a century and the most luxurious fashion brands generate millions of dollars every season by hosting these preview events for the elite shoppers in their flagship locations.   Cities like San Francisco, Chicago, & New York are no strangers to these often "invitation only" events.   Of course Beverly Hills like NYC was where these events were born.  Exclusive shopping destinations like South Coast Plaza in Southern California, The American Manhasset on Long Island in NY, and the Bal Harbour Shops in Miami are ground zero for this pastime and passion of the richest women in the world.

Italian Luxury Goods house Salvatore Ferragamo has a history with these elite shoppers.   Salvatore invented the concept of the designer shoe decades ago as his immigration from rural southern Italy to Southern California would change the world of footwear forever.   Inventing (and patenting) many of the most worn shoe shapes worn by women - from the platform to the stiletto - Ferragamo became the shoemaker to the stars and to the society women that the world of luxury fashion was created to dress. 

Today, 100 years since Salvatore came to America as a young man, the global empire that now bears his name is taking the Trunk Show experience in the 21st century.   Just as Salvatore Ferragamo was ahead of his time and a visionary, the powers that be steering his legacy have a modern vision that also respects the rich history of this truly inconic fashion house.CREATING YOUR LOOK IN JUST A FEW CLICKS AT WWW.TRUNKSHOW.FERRAGAMO.COM

In addition to hosting physical Trunk Shows in key flagship stores around the country, Ferragamo has also invente an on-line partner to the in-store experience.   Shoppers that visit www.TrunkShow.Ferragamo.com can view the entire collection available for purchase in a variety of ways.   Clicking through the collection can view a 360 degree view of items worn on a model, view the images from the Runway Show, and what I think is the most fun part - create your own outfit with a 21st century paper doll tool.   Simply click on shoes, bags, and clothing to instantly view the combination on the body.   Then with a click -change your mind, remix, and redress this virtual you - without ever having to take off your own shoes ( that is if you are even dressed!).  I don't care if you grew up with Barbies or Bratz - who can resist paper dolls?

Of course, any luxury goods are best seen in person so you can touch and feel and actually try them on.  However if you are very busy, or don't live so close to a Ferragamo boutique - the trunk show website is an excellent way to learn about the collection before you visit a store.   With over 650 boutiques globally, I challenge any reader to tell me they don't live near a Salvatore Ferragamo fashion experience!  ** The Ready-To-Wear is only available in Ferragamo boutiques - a true luxury detail **

DAME EDNA AND STELLA TURNS LONDON ON!

STELLA McCARTNEY BOUTIQUE LONDON - BRUTON STREET HOLIDAYLIGHTSStella McCartney held her holiday lighting ceremony at her boutique on Bruton Street in London last night, and it didn't disappoint.   Stella has made the annual event the hippest and hottest place to light the lights by bringing her unique sense of humor and levity to the world of designer fashion.   This year the one and only Dame Edna Everadge was master of ceremonies.  DAME EDNA (BARRY HUMPHRIES) & STELLA McCARTNEY - BRUTON STREET HOLIDAY LIGHTING Created and performed by Australian comedian Barry Humphries, Dame Edna is legendary for her personality that is somewhere between the Queen herself and Mrs. Bucket from "Keeping Up Appearances".  STELLA McCARTNEY HOLIDAY LIGHTS - BRUTON STREET, LONDON - IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS! Dame Edna was so popular in the 80's and 90's that her network television holiday specials were tops in the ratings.   Humphries and Edna are currently on their farewell world tour -Eat, Pray, Laugh.  Currently in London.  

All the fashionable Brits were there - Dame Judy Dench, Sienna Miller, etc.   Also a few billionaire wives like Salma Hayek were in holiday spirits.  (Salma looks good - that skincare line of hers at CVS must work!)STELLA McCARTNEY WITH SALMA HAYEK IN LONDON

Of course, the Stella McCartney boutique is a destination for the famous, the fashion, and the fun every day of the year.. but even more so during the holiday season.   Still holiday shopping?  Get to the Stella McCartney boutique near you NOW.. they're all over the world now,you know?  #BRAVOSTELLA

BREAKING THE HEAT-WAVE, STELLA McCARTNEY TAKES THE PLUNGE

STELLA McCARTNEY FALL 2013 - PH: MERT & MARCUSIt's a hot Summer.. one of the hottest on record in fact.  In New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, and cities across America, Europe, and in the U.K. as well.   Leave it to Stella McCartney to give us a fashion campaign that addresses this heat-wave head on.  Images from her Fall / Winter 2013 campaignSTELLA McCARTNEY in the WSJ - PH: MARY McCARTNEY have just been released.   The campaign was styled by Stella herself and photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus PiggottSTELLA McCARTNEY FALL 2013 The collaborative fashion duo known as Mert & Marcus - not to be confused with M/M Paris - the other fashion art director / photographers duo.   (Not easy getting any attention in the U.K. these days unless the story mentions the Royal Baby!) 

Stella McCartney expresses herself in her campaigns using strong, bold colors, and striking poses.  Her ads are always about more than one dress or one coat, but the overall image as art, and ultimately - the brand.   Stella is an island unto herself when it comes to - well so many things in the fashion world.   She is the only woman in her 40's running a global, namesake, fashion house.  She is the only global fashion designer that refuses to use leather in her collection.  She is the only major fashion designer to be developing organic skin care.  Stella McCartney is consistent and a class act - she is also cool.    Dive in for Fall.  Menswear tailoring and silhouette heavily influence key pieces in the collection - TREND ALERT.  While this trend is being felt across the industry - Stella has street cred when it comes to Menswear detailing - in fact she owns it.   From her first collections at CHLOE in the 90's, Stella has iced her collections with a masculine piece here and there.

Look for the campaign in print in the September issues!
