2008 GAP Design Edition

On April 15, Gap marked the second consecutive year of Gap Design Editions, a limited edition collection specially designed for Gap by the winners of the annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund competition.

American designers (3.1) Phillip Lim, Scott Sternberg from Band of Outsiders, Michael Bastian, and ThreeAsFour's Gabi Asfour, Adi Gil & Angela Donhauser designed a limited edition collection inspired by the classic Gap white shirt.

Oscar fantasy dresses

Oscars are only one day ahead and I can hardly wait the red carpet parade (and so is the rest of the fashion world). I guess you've already seen this but I couldn't resist posting it. Style.com asked 10 fashion designers to draw their dream dress for each of the Oscar nominated ladies. It's quite likely that this fashion fantasy will not match up the real Oscar red carpet but it's interesting to see how designers' and actresses' personalities join in to create the perfect dress.

New York Fashion Week's Highlights

New York Fashion Week just ended and left us fashion addicts to day dream until next fall. It's quite hard to classify them into season's top collections as there were many great design ideas and color combinations. So I just turned to my favorite designers this time.

3.1 Phillip Lim always manages to deliver versatile designs. I love how he uses soft fabrics like silk, suede, jersey but also raw denim and creates cool, urban but very feminine and grown-up looks. And by grown-up I don't not mean dull...just look at that gorgeous tiny grey leather jacket worn with that wonderful bohemian maxi dress.

The Mad Hat

Spring 2008 runways have shown a lot of women's hats. Does this mean
we're going back to 'can't get out of the house without a hat' times?
Could the hat be as essential as a handbag these days? Well I think the
answer is no but a hat is definite a more fashionable accessory, now,
complementing any outfit. Don't think of conservative "royal court"
styles and get rid of the sporty caps.

Chic Friday Outfit

Most companies have a casual friday dress code, but what would you say about a chic friday code? You could choose your favorite trends of the season and create your own fashionable smart look. My favorite styles: the 3/4 quarter sleeve jacket worn with cuff bracelets, the pencil skirt, ankle boots, oversized structured handbag, and the yellow top (i'm in love with this one from Phillip Lim).
