Cosplay Fashion at Cyberzone Technolife Affair

It’s a Saturday afternoon filled with gadgets, cosplay and an additional knowledge on blogging and its importance to the society.But what I noticed on this even was the two lovely cosplayer ladies and that’s the Gosiengfiao sisters.

And my dear readers, do you know that cosplaying is one of the trending fashion this past few years? Cosplay fashion just like Alodia Gosiegfiao and Ashley Gosiegfiao  do became more and more popular especially to teenagers.

And because of the influence of cosplay, even café use this fashion trend to their gimmick. That Café was called Meidolls Café and it is becoming popular here in the Philippines.

Me as a fashion blogger I really like anime that is why I appreciate this fashion sense although I didn’t try it personally. But I salute all cosplayers because of their passion and efforts in creating their costumes and portraying their favorite Anime and video game characters.

Spring 2011 Must Have: Floral Accented Footwear

Hey my fellow fashionistas out there, know the latest trend in footwear this Spring 2011? If you don't then read this post because the Fashion Police might arrest you for being late in trends.

Floral-accented kicks are must-haves for spring 2011. Never have shoe departments been so abloom. Dimensional blossoms decorate easy thong sandals, wedges and dressy pumps. Some blooms are painted on with broad, lush strokes, turning shoes into canvases.

The styles are done in a rich range of colors, from neutral metallics, browns and beiges to eye-popping brights, such as pink, yellow, green and blue.

So this spring, plug into flower power and shine.

Kate Middleton Designer Clothing Dress fetches $105,000 at auction

LONDON (Reuters) – A dress worn by Prince William's fiancée Kate Middleton at a university fashion show in 2002 which reportedly sparked the royal's interest in his bride-to-be fetched 65,000 pounds ($105,000) on Thursday.

 Including commission, the see-through mesh slip dress designed by Charlotte Todd sold for 78,000 pounds ($126,000). It had been expected to sell for 8,000-10,000 pounds.

Todd, who was in the saleroom at Kerry Taylor Auctions in London, said she planned to put the proceeds of the sale toward buying a house with her husband.
"I am totally speechless, and feel very emotional," she said. "I really didn't think it would make that amount. I am planning to put some of the money toward a deposit for a house, but perhaps I may use some to change my career."

Earlier, Todd had said: "If it is true that my design helped change the Prince's interest in Kate from platonic to romantic as has been reported, then I am pleased to have played a part -- however minor."

The dress went to a collector in Jersey, Channel Islands.

Middleton and William, who met at St. Andrews University in Scotland in 2001, are to marry in London's Westminster Abbey on April 29.

Among the other items sold on Thursday were two dresses worn by William's late mother Princess Diana -- a Zandra Rhodes pink chiffon dinner gown which sold for 30,000 pounds and a white formal lace evening gown which fetched 36,000 pounds.

A Louis Vuitton vanity case once belonging to U.S. socialite Wallis Simpson, the late wife of British King Edward VIII, went under the hammer for 48,000 pounds, several times its pre-sale estimate of 6-10,000 pounds.

In a recent interview, Vanessa described “Sucker Punch” as “really interesting and extremely hard to put into words.”

It’s basically six movies all put together in one and with different settings, and it takes place in the fifties and it’s super kick-ass. It’s classy, it’s empowering and it’s very moving.”

Feting a Designer Clothes Fashion 'Sculptor'

Known for wild sculptural gowns and voluminous dresses of pleated silk, Italy's Roberto Capucci will soon be the latest fashion designer to get the major-museum treatment.

"Art Into Fashion," at the Philadelphia Museum of Art from March 16 to June 5, celebrates a designer who—though not a household name in America—was a major figure of the couture scene from the 1950s to the 1980s.

INE SKIRTS,' by Roberto Capucci, is made of overlapping layers in silk taffeta

Mr. Capucci was well-positioned to dress the Italian elite: He sold his first design (at age 18, in the late 1940s) to Marcella de Marchis Rossellini, then the wife of famed film director Roberto Rossellini. Mr. Capucci made a splash at Italy's 1951 fashion show.

By 1962, Life Magazine was hailing Mr. Capucci as one of two rising couture stars—the other being Yves Saint Laurent.

With a reputation for spectacular innovation in shape, Mr. Capucci employed unusual materials, such as pebbles, raffia, plastic and even glow-in-the-dark beads. "His dresses became sculptures almost from the beginning," said curator Dilys Blum.

Mr. Capucci's dresses were worn by Gloria Swanson and Marilyn Monroe, but his work wasn't only for the famous. "As he focused more on fashion as art, he was primarily known for dressing aristocratic Italian ladies," said Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

The Philadelphia exhibit includes more than 80 works, notably Mr. Capucci's 1956 "Nove Gonne" ("Nine Skirts"), which pairs a simple bodice with nine overlapping layers of skirts in red silk taffeta. The seductive dress made an appearance in an advertisement for the 1957 Cadillac Series 62 convertible, featuring an elegant model posing in the Roman Forum.

Mr. Capucci's use of tiny, delicate pleating took shapes into fanciful territory: A gown of gold silk lamé suggests angel wings; another in red silk mimics the curves of hot flames.

When he returned to Italy in 1968 after a sojourn in Paris, he continued to emphasize artistic vision over commercial concerns. And in 1980, Mr. Capucci resigned from the rigors of the couture schedule entirely. "I was exasperated, I'd had enough of rules and calendars," he said in a 1996 exhibition catalog. "If a painter or sculptor hasn't finished, he doesn't show."

Mr. Capucci's focus shifted to fashion-as-sculpture, and the designs grew ever more spectacular; in 1995, he was invited to show at the Venice Biennale art show.

Today, the museum world continues its ever-closer embrace of fashion designer  clothes. Later this year, the Dallas Museum of Art will stage a retrospective for French couturier Jean-Paul Gaultier. A recent donation to New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute will renovate the fashion galleries, allowing for more exhibitions.
