AMfAR
The annual celebrity studded AMfAR was nothing short of A-List. The superstar guest list included Nicole Kidman, Chris Tucker, Dustin Hoffman, Will Smith, Jesica Chastain, Toby Maguire, Leonardo Di Caprio David Beckham, Dian Kruger, Adrian Brody and Uma Thurman.

Diana Ross, Joe Jonas, Nicki Minaj and Rita Ora provided entertainment.

The night’s theme was the Golden Age Of Hollywood and art deco accents decorated the beautiful Hotel Du Cap. Fashion’s brightest were there as well including a bevy of designers: Jean Paul Gaultier, Dsquared2’s Dean and Dan Caten, Philipp Plein and Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing.

Carine Roitfeld presented a Golden Age Of Hollywood fashion curation for auction on the hottest models in the industry including Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, Karolína Kurková, Hailey Baldwin, Barbara Palvin, Jasmine Tookes and Natasha Poly. The selection included a golden open-back mermaid gown from Alexandre Vauthier, a white robe worn over a pink jumpsuit from Chanel, a red leather gown from Louis Vuitton and a black Lurex kimono from Tom Ford. Not forgetting a selection of Harry Winston jewels provided by the brand, a main sponsor of the event. The set of 30 looks went for a cool 3 million euros, or $3.4 million from the attendees who engaged in fierce bidding over the spectacular clothes.

Naiomi Campbell’s Fashion For Relief
Naomi Campbell held her Fashion for Relief show in a hangar at the Mandelieu private jet charter airport in Cannes.

The 400 guests included notables Leonardo Di Caprio, Uma Thurman, Donatella Versace and Faye Dunaway. The royal contingent included Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan, Sarah Ferguson and her daughter Princess Beatrice. Lauren Hill provided the entertainment. Kate Moss, Heidi Klum, Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn and Antonio Banderas walked her runway show, which raises funds for various environmental and humanitarian causes.

Planet Fashion TV Cocktails And Couture
The new kid on the block was Planet Fashion TV’s Cocktails and Couture. This year we attended the small trendy fashion event in Cannes and it is definitely worth mentioning. While it was not as celebrity heavy as AMfAR, it was certainly glitzy and definitely fun. The event honored the Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation. It featured an impeccable fashion show by an Austrian designer, Katharina Kaesbach whose aesthetic was classic European elegance. Her couture collection was notable for its timeless details.

The event was held at the Grand Hotel on the Boulevard de la Croisette in a pop-up gallery right in the middle of the front gardens. It was a vibrant crowd of movie- makers and fashionistas. The attendees danced and partied until almost morning. All night long there were performers costumed as Mozart dancing with the crowd. Presumably, this had something to do with the designer from Austria.  I give this credit for being one of the most enjoyable fashion events of the week.

Online Fashion Marketplace JOOR Taps Kristin Savilia as CEO

0

NEW YORK, NY – JOOR, the leading online, global marketplace for wholesale fashion buyers, announced that longtime retail, e-commerce and marketplace executive Kristin Savilia has joined the company as chief executive to lead the company through its next phase of growth.

Savilia, who most recently spent 11 years at XO Group — which runs the wedding, home and baby Web sites The Knot, The Nest and The Bump — started her career as a retail buyer and understands first-hand the value of JOOR’s service, a platform that connects fashion buyers and brands of all sizes online. The marketplace helps retail stores and boutiques save time, cut costs and better analyze the performance of their inventory through detailed data analytics.

“If JOOR had been available when I was a buyer, my job would have been so much easier,” said Savilia. “I wouldn’t have tracked my inventory with paper, binders and taped photos, and I certainly wouldn’t have bought similar items. The 24/7 online access to thousands of fashion brands on JOOR, and the platform’s deep analytics, make this service a real game-changer for buyers and brands.”

JOOR works with major retailers like Neiman Marcus and Harrods and brands including Zac Posen, Donna Karan and Dolce Vita. The marketplace also helps smaller designers and fashion brands to connect with buyers online. Savilia replaces Mona Bijoor, who is moving on to pursue other opportunities.

“Kristin’s experience uniquely equips her to lead JOOR as it transforms the fashion retail industry,” said David Liu, founder and chairman of XO Group, who worked with Savilia for nine years. “Prior to joining me at XO Group Inc. Kristin implemented new technology initiatives for major retailers to advance their businesses. As president of Local Marketplace at XO Group Inc., she created a platform for thousands of local retailers and service providers to better serve and acquire customers, through new technology solutions.”

At XO Group, in her most recent role running the local-marketplace group, Savilia grew the paid-vendor base by 57% and increased local sales revenue by 68%, seamlessly adding more than 250,000 local wedding vendors to TheKnot.com in one year. She was also a key leader in transitioning XO Group into a marketplace for wedding-related vendors.

Prior to joining The Knot in 2005, Savilia was an executive director at Linens N Things and regional director and buyer at Macy’s.

“We are excited to have Kristin on board, and to partner with her as she begins to lead JOOR through its next chapter,” said Michael Brown, a JOOR board member and general partner at Battery Ventures.

ASVOFF9 will be held in Sofia during Balkan Fashion Week

0

For the first time ever a fashion film festival will be launched at a movie studio, the Hollywood of the Balkans. Balkan Fashion Week will be held from June 5-10th at Nu Boyana Film Studios.
The ambition of the organizers is to gather artists from around the world in Bulgaria,a country not yet known as a fashion destination. The theme is “Fashion meets cinema” and Nu Boyana Film Studios is the gracious host and partner of the event. The event would not have been possible without the support of Nu Boyana Film Studios. Starting June 5 – 10th Nu Boyana will become the largest “Fashion City” in Eastern Europe.

With the educated eye of international industry professionals, designers and film directors will have the opportunity to showcase their work during Balkan Fashion Week.

The aim of the fashion platform is to create and establish lasting conditions for long term collaboration between East and West Europe. Various fashion and art presentations, as well as live music performances, will take place amidst the the scenery of the studio in Nu Boyana Film Studios.

At the special meeting with the media, the organizers of the biggest fashion forum in the Balkans revealed details of their event. The press conference opened with Mr. Yariv Lerner , the CEO of the Nu Boyana Film Studios expressing his excitement in the collaboration that will take place over the next few months at Nu Boyana. Nu Boyana gives their support to the special projects with the Balkan Fashion Week. Among the events taking place will be a film competition by the first annual international film festival, ASVOFF and the grand prize, the Nu Boyana prize, will be 50,000 EUROS in services and 5,000 euros in cash to the winner which will help fund the filming and realization of a short or feature film. Mr. Lerner is an advocate of supporting emerging talent. “This is only a small part of the the surprises that are in store for you and the exciting things that we have prepared.” Said Mr. Lerner.

The international fashion icon, blogger, talent scout and creator of the first annual international fashion film festival, Diane Pernet, was a guest at the conference. For the past nine years ASVOFF has been launched in Paris, first at the Jeu de Paume and then for the past 7 years at Centre Pompidou. This edition marks the first time the festival has been launched outside of Paris and on a film studio. Be prepared for live broadcasts of the event around the globe in locations such as Paris, London, Barcelona, Lisbon, Milan, Moscow and Bucharest.

“Up until now ASVOFF has screened at many locations around the world but this year we decided to do something completely different and to launch ASVOFF 9 on a film set, Nu Boyana.

The film studio is the heart and the soul of cinema so it only makes sense to launch ASVOFF 9 here and thanks to Mr. Lerner and Balkan Fashion Week we have been given that opportunity. We feel like kids in a toy shop in a constant state of wonderment at all the possibilities Nu Boyana studios provides.” Said Diane about the upcoming edition of her prestigious film festival.

In attendance at the press conference were Mira Postolache – International PR of Balkan Fashion Week, Jolita Manolova – Art Director of the Balkan Fashion Week, as well as some of the organizers : Teodora Guergova, Kristina Dimitrova, Maria Koleva, Elena Alexy and Mila Zaharieva.

Balkan International Wine Competition and Festival BIWC will be held days before the opening of the Balkan Fashion Week and their theme this year is the fight against breast cancer. Balkan Fashion week will partner in the campaign against breast cancer, which has a worldwide motto: #winelover against cancer. Its aim is to raise awareness and information about disease prevention. T-shirts with the campaign slogan will be available to purchase during Balkan Fashion Week. The funds raised by the sale of the t-shirts will go towards the purchase of a camper van, which will travel across the country providing research and information to women in Bulgaria.

Lingerie as Street-Wear

0

Ladies, we used to lunge into our lingerie drawers solely for two reasons. The first is the most obvious as lingerie was made to free women of corsets and allow them to indulge in visually appealing under garments: sex appeal.  What do we all do as we prepare in hopes of a “lucky” Friday night? Frantically search for that daring bra and underwear set our minds insist will thrill our steamy hook up (we all ache to look like a Victoria Secret Angel as we undress). Lingerie has always been made to make women feel sexy and personally, beneath all my tediously picked date night outfits is always a matching set that gives me that extra boost of sexual confidence to get a little frisky by the end of the night. Beyond the sex appeal reasoning, lingerie serves as a daily requirement and still calls for careful selection underneath casual wear. Why not wear the push-up bra under that v-neck shirt for a little spice? I don’t like visible underwear lines so thongs are pretty handy, but don’t get me wrong; I’ll rock boy shorts cleaning my house.

There seems to be a new fashion trend embracing us though that doesn’t require any cover up of that romantic lingerie we take secret pleasure in buying and all it involves is wearing it out. Edgy bralets, traditional corsets, and mesh body pieces are making their way into the fashion world as street wear while cultivating a look that can be feminine and sophisticated, but also a little daring for us modest folk. A couple years before this fashion trend sprouted, we’ve all had the experience of noting the girl prancing around in what you knew to be lingerie. Was it acceptable? She probably looked hot, but you still knew and noticed. If we take our chiffon, satin, and lace outside the bedroom I’d like to do it with some class which I must confess I have seen. The runway has been graced with an assortment of night slip dresses in which I find romantically charming, chic, and alluring. They are somewhat reminiscent to me of a classic 1930’s look which makes their boldness all the while acceptable. I am also guilty of wearing a black long-sleeved chiffon night robe as a dress to a cocktail party years ago so I guess I’m willing to take some daring steps in welcoming this trend.

Like with most things, I believe if you do it right you can rock it. I don’t want to see girls in night clubs with neon bras and shabby boy shorts on over fish nets because well, that’s only socially acceptable for me at raves. If we’re going to adopt lingerie as street wear let’s do it in a unique way that will highlight our generation. It’s taken a long time for lingerie to dwindle down to the small pieces of cloth we call underwear and comfortable bras we sport everyday so let’s be original. Women have fought long and hard to disengage from modesty so to be this daring will require that soft “woman’s touch.” Wear that lacey body piece with a matching bra under, paired with a blazer and high-waisted pencil skirt for a refined look that no one could comment on. Slip on that bralet you’ve been eyeing with one of those popular see through skirts and you’ve got an outfit that is flirtatious but still offers some coverage. And if it’s Friday night and you find yourself once again lunging into your lingerie drawer, throw on that favorite bra you love with a matching pair of fitted professional shorts for an outfit that will definitely be eye-catching to that steamy hook up you got your mind set on.
