Let There Be Light

The March equinox has long been celebrated as a time of rebirth in the Northern Hemisphere. Spring-time festivals and holidays such as Easter and Passover are the main celebrations across many cultures as the path of the Sun aligns with Earth’s equator.

It’s a time of both rebirth and renewal. i-Fashion Magazine will celebrate our 10th year anniversary this spring. As I reflect on the past 10 years I am floored by all of our accomplishments and now….I’m ready for more. My hope in the next few months as we transition into spring, is to expand our audience both domestically and internationally. Without giving too much away, I plan to build on our commitment to diversity and inclusion and grace our pages with models, designers, and photographers from Martha’s Vineyard to Ethiopia.

Yes, a broad range of talent and beauty will grace our print pages and our newly designed website. I welcome you to also reflect on this time and think about ways to bring renewal and rebirth to your worlds. Much success and happy spring.

Paris Fashion Week does Black Leather

Outerwear gained a new focus at the recently concluded Paris Fashion Week Fall Winter 18 with designers going back to the essence of the classic black leather coat. A of brands showcased head-to-toe black looks in impeccably crafted animal skin which radiated a luxurious sheen.
Givenchy, Olivier Theyskens and Hermes sent out below-the-knee length top coats in leather. Designer Anthony Vaccarello at Saint Laurent brought back focus on the booties by teaming them with ultra-short leather shorts which were paired with a leather jacket. Valentino sent out a top coat with a hoodie and statement fringe which were paired with matching black booties.

Earthy In Paris

Seems like the earth tones is the thing for Paris Fashion Week RTW 2018.  An avid array of rust, beige, orange and yellow garments graced the Paris runways this season. Models walked down the runway wearing mismatched ceramic earrings, mules with geometric heels, sarongs tied nonchalantly around their hips, and wide headbands for Jacquemus’ beach-inspired spring collection.
