JI OH, BUDDING CFDA DARLING, IS A LABEL TO WATCH

When Ji Oh debuted her eponymous womenwear line at New York Fashion Week in 2014, her fall collection landed on the cover of WWD the following day and Barneys New York placed an order. “It was very memorable and rewarding,” she says. “And I felt like, ‘Okay, now I can do this.'” Oh’s checklist of achievements as a young designer on the rise only continued, and 2016 has proven to be a breakout year. Not only did she earn a sponsorship to show during Made Fashion Week in February, but the CFDA also selected Oh as a member of the CFDA Fashion Incubator Class of 2018, and she was named a finalist in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund competition.

But Oh’s success stems more from her determination to do well than simply sheer luck...

The 14 Unforgettable Gowns from Couture Fashion Week

070716-couture-week-dresses-leadHaris Haute Couture Fashion Week came and went, and along with it, the exquisite, extraordinary one-of-a-kind works of the couturiers.

But even though their time on the fall 2016 runways were fleeting (much like all good things in life), at least we have the photographs of each look to obsess-slash-drool over. Unlike ready-to-wear, couture is a way for designers to stretch their imaginations without worrying about silly things like affordability and in some cases, wearability.As a result, there’s no shortage of extravagance or spectacular looks that serves as a fine display of exemplary craftsmanship. Take designer Iris van Herpen, for instance. The designer fashioned a stunning masterpiece made of thousands of silicone-coated hand-blown glass bubbles...

50 Ways to Embrace Festival Style at Coachella This Weekend

Give in to the floral crown. You know you want to.

If Valentino’s turquoise jewelry and Saint Laurent’s ubiquitous suede jacket are any indication, festival dressing can be done right. We get it, there’s a strong love/hate relationship with the style; it is a look that can elicit very strong feelings. But deep down in your gut you know if you’re heading to Coachella this month (or any festival for that matter!) you wish you were Vanessa Hudgens, twirling around in the perfect gypsy outfit as you wander aimlessly through Indio. So embrace the fringe, give in to the floral crown, and get weird this weekend with our massive roundup that meets all of your Coachella needs.

Festival Need: Denim

Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2016 Couture

Every designer has an inspiration for his or her collection, but few take their subject matter as far and as deep as Jean Paul Gaultier. He loves to play on the side of kitsch and shows some of the most ostentatious and bold looks on the runway season after season: creating one of the must-see catwalks consistently and essentially making him a natural fit for Couture. His Spring 2016 influence was that of legendary Parisian hotspot, Le Palace—a party go-to in the 70’s for people like Gaultier and all of his famous friends and muses.

Atelier Versace Spring 2016 Couture

Versace has solidified its place in history for praising and exalting the female form: its every arch, curvation, and bend. Donatella Versace has been at the helm of the brand for almost two decades now and has definitely made the iconic Italian fashion house synonymous with power, sensuality, and strength: yes, the kinds of pieces you would wear for a night out but for the love of your own body and not that of the male gaze. D-ring accented straps, bomber jackets, functional knits, and contrast stripes kicked off the sporty chic vibe that pervaded over its latest Couture assortment.

The Stars Who Slayed the Red Carpet in Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane

Even though rumors had been circulating for awhile now, waking up to the news that Hedi Slimane was officially leaving Saint Laurent came as no less of a shock (and on April Fool’s Day, too). As the creative and image director, Slimane wasted no time in making monumental changes during his tenure, like stripping away the Yves, reinstating couture, relocating the atelier, and renovating a 17th-century mansion l’Hôtel de Sénecterre. As for design, he repositioned the French luxury house and gave it a rocker edge that blended archival pieces with a dangerous streak of underground cool, like his cropped, modern-day take on Saint Laurent’s original green fur coat from the 1970s in his spring 2015 collection.

It was this refreshing overhaul that has led to a rediscovery of the brand for some ...
