Fashion Trends for Spring/Summer 2022!

Think💭 Styles that bring out a more feminine & softer side…

Xoo1 Kool

One of the main attractions on the style sheet is a trend that’s been running longer than expected.

Turns out.. that the mini skirt…is making a comeback.. for more than a minute!

MINI SKIRT SUITS are a number one fashion choice.

Of course fun and flirty suits featuring shorts… are still cool, but MINI SKIRT SUITS show off a bit more tailoring—and still give you a chance to show ofthose L E G S !!!!

A very sharp mini suit… is the perfect choice for a lunch date, bridal shower, fashion show..or even a shopping excursion —out and about with another diva… or two.. 👯

I love this look from Chanel!

This vivid color from Christian Dior is also fabulous! Notice the double pockets.

After a long hard bout of extensive quarantine periods… after COVID 19..

Ladies can step out into the new season looking more delicate..

Demure and delicate …. LACE is expected to Grace… a lot of wardrobes! I’m all for it!!!!! 🙌🏽✨

Lace always been one of my personal favorites… in one way.. or another for YEARS !!!! Lace Bras/ Lingerie, Lace Dresses, Shirts and Skirts,

There are even some very unique Jumpsuits and cat suits in the delicate material.

A Lace Dress from the Nordstrom collection.

Anything in LACE has always made my eyes ✨Sparkle!✨ It’s just so PRETTY!!!!

Lovely! Lovely! LACE

I gained a new respect for anything lace… after watching the traditional way it is made…

During a trip to Malta… not far away from Sicily… I watched the process in wide eyed wonder…. 👀

Bobbin lace is made by weaving threads wound on bobbins around pins holding a pattern to a pillow. It is a complicated and very beautiful art form.

Lace ensemble from MICHAEL KORS

Here’s a FANTASY LACE selection… A very fine creation from LOUIS VUITTON… Cape and ALL!

More Lace… that you can order on AMAZON !

STRIPES will probably keep sticking around…

Christian Dior has some traditional favorites..

CHRISTIAN DIOR also has a BIG selection of Striped purses and Tote Bags.

For my personal choice… Stripes have always been a FUN favorite!

In my mind… it’s just something about stripes that are uplifting!

I’m Feeling’ like Sunshine ☀️ wearing these gold stripes!

Whether it’s a sporty style… or a more formal look with Pin Stripes, it’s definitely an ATTENTION GRABER!

Boss Stripe Looks

This year, Instead of just a classic horizontal pattern, new variations of color, width, and direction will be used to give more structure.

In the spotlight!Exquisite Costume Designs…from Oscar nominated films 🎬🎥

A steady stream of curious visitors… were amazed by this exhibit at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

(FIDM)–>Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising… is located in downtown LA…

The school collects the previous year’s major movie costumes, (including those worn by 2018 Oscar nominees, )..and puts them in the spotlight!

These costumes wrangled in groups. The details stopped folks in their tracks… I liked watching people inch forward… narrowing their eyes… just to get a better perspective.

Sometimes… it seemed as though visitors…were under the spell of “Wonder Woman” and her magical lasso…

Details! Details! Just powerful! 👊🏽

What a privilege to see these costumes up close… and all the little things you may have missed watching the movie!

The display recently closed… but was free… and open to the public.

This year, the designs of more than 125 costumes were featured. Including creations from FIDM alumni.

An FIDM spokesman, was quoted as saying: “The designers “unsung heroes….working very hard…and quietly behind the scenes.

These talented forces create characters…that help tell the story.

I’d like to add… that costumes always leave a lasting impression!

Costumes set the tone on how the audience will receive characters… and connect with them.. during particular time periods… key events…

They can evoke certain emotions…and set a certain mood…

Fun! Carefree!Lighthearted… and bright!

You know… like the vivid fashion featured on “Girl’s trip”

…and the cute outfits on “Lady Bird”

….or eerie… and dark… dare I say creepy looks from “IT!”

But let’s not forget the ✨magical moments✨ either!

Its amazing to feel like you’re able to turn back the hands of time… and examine the fashions and style trends from the past.

Costumes that are replica’s from unforgettable figures… and moments in history.. wow!

Dazzling looks created by Ellen Mironjnick, for “The Greatest Showman, Twentieth Century Fox

For “The Shape of Water,” best costume nominee Luis Sequeira designed more humble-looking clothes…

Jacqueline Durran was nominated for the magical Disney film…”Beauty and the Beast”

She was also nominated for her World War II era costumes in “Darkest Hour.”

Nominee Consolata Boyle designed extraordinary costumes “extravagant” enough for a queen” for the film “Victoria and Abdul.”

In “Phantom Thread” several hundred yards of film were used for women’s costumes.

Fifty original wardrobe pieces were created for the film..

Phantom Thread… was a 2018 Academy Award Winner.. in Costume design!

Mark Bridges, Costume Designer, Focus Features

Costumes for add so much to movies, and it’s hard to believe an Academy Award for costume design wasn’t given until 20 years after the Oscars started….

As the cameras keep rolling over the years… Designs have gotten more.. and more creative!

These pieces from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.. (Lucasfilm), are out of sight!

Michael Kaplan is Costume Designer..

To date… Costume design has become one of the most competitive categories!

A category I look forward to celebrating every year!

…. and “sew on..” and

“sew forth!”

I hope this pun “stitches up” this fashion blog for you… just right!

Can we get a round of applause for the unsung heroes… keeping things together behind the scenes… of film! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 #Thank-you!
