#FreeTheNipple Christopher Kane London Runway

#FreeTheNipple combines with Christopher Kane’s mature and sophisticated fashion pieces baring all on the London 2015 Spring Runway.

Could your beaming headlights be next season’s most stylish accessories? It certainly looks that way. From what we’ve seen at on the runway – bras and pasties are out, nipples are in.

At London Fashion Week’s Spring 2015 shows, models were bearing their breasts left, right and centre. Tom Ford recently presented sequinned nipple pasties on the runway, but Burberry, Erdem and Christopher Kane took the look one step further this week – bra-less is the new trend, it seems.

This season, Christopher Kane’s show was about more than showcasing his ensembles. As a former Saint Martins student of the late Professor Louise Wilson, his collection was influenced by her presence in his life, and her passing. Revisiting ropes a detail he was drawn to in his student collections while studying beneath her the jackets that made their way down the catwalk were formed of nautical zigzag lines, and his silky grey slip dresses brought in at the waist by rope belts.

But don’t be fooled. Grown-up, yes, but not sombre or predictable. As ever, the designer brought newness to the catwalk, from tulle peeping underneath hems to sheer panels to bring the #freethenipple to life and begin a trend that also sparks controversy.
Here is a look at his risky, skin shedding designs from the runway

Style Crush: Christine Centenara.

title

She is the darling of the Australian fashion world, super Stylist and consultant to Kanye West and Ksubi, and recently Senior Fashion Editor at Vogue Australia (moving over from Harpers Bazaar). She is the uber stylish Christine Centenera.

She has incredible style. One of those people who is just always immaculately put together and always wears her fashion, never lets it wear her.”

Christine´s style may be defined as “too brave” or “too much”, often seen in bold outfits Christine’s look mixes fashion and function: strong shoulder blazers, baroque style, peplum, lace, controversial see-through fabrics and is never intimidated by matching oversized clothes with statement shoes. Or even layering patterned pants, draped shirts and jackets with her signature sunglasses for impeccable street style.

  She likes to keep it simple with basic colors though: black, white, nude and grey.

Zimmermann- New York Fashion Week

602629_485436598157717_456881947_n10609582_805455879489119_3069065529621892351_n

 

Zimmermann Spring Summer 2015 collection titled ‘Tell Me Seer’  was light and airy, full of movement and sophistication. Movement was paramount to Zimmermann’s pieces this season, and delicate shapes reigned. They came in printed silks and wisteria- and peach-colored lace, and wafted out from under pin-striped utilitarian vests. Pitting masculine against feminine is familiar territory for Zimmermann, and here she teamed her cascading gowns with cargo pockets, and sent out suiting in icy blue sharkskin. Timeless and modern, it is this constant level of design that keeps Zimmermann at the forefront of the Australian and international playing field.

For the Spring 2015 Tell Me Seer collection, Zimmermann was inspired by astrological references, from David Palladini artworks to motifs of the tarot.

Float away with Zimmermann’s Spring collection, Zimmermann began in Sydney, with Nicky Zimmermann creating dresses and selling them at Paddington markets. Zimmermann took the step of fusing fashion with swimwear and presented it to the world. What was created was a new reference point for fashion focused swim that has continued to evolve over two decades. Zimmermann is a quintessentially Australian fashion story, who has joined the ever-growing Australian designers showcasing at New York Fashion Week, which grows the Australian support of the internationally recognised fashion label.

“I’m too fat!”- Young girls body image issues

Today a little girl who was about 9 years old came into my work with her mother, they were looking at clothes when her mother pointed out a pair of denim short shorts for the girl to wear. I was shocked when I heard the young girl reply to her mother stating “I’m too fat to wear them”.

little girl

This made me realise, the shocking truth about body image in today’s society and how it has now started to effect the young and innocent children before they hit their teen years.  Young girls in primary school should be excited to wear those bright and colourful outfits making all the fashion faux par moments they can, these are those moments we look back on and laugh about. We all have these memories of fluro outfits and stages of punk pieces of clothing which has developed our style to give us all our own unique and personal touches. However young girls are being bombarded with appearances that are lowering their self-esteem and I think it is time that we begin to make a change as the youngest and the most impressionable are being impacted.

The media needs to realise the impact they are having on not only the people involved in the scandals on the front of a magazine, however the young girls and boys that are exposed to the media. It is not only the media anymore, It doesn’t help that real-life role models, mothers in particular, too often openly obsess about their own weight; that male role models, like dads and older brothers, make clear their preference for thinner women; and that an overwhelming percentage of girls’ clothing features body-hugging, midriff-baring styles most comfortably worn by the ultra-thin.

It is shocking that we as adults suffer from low self-esteem in regards to body image, however when it starts effecting our young children, nieces, sisters, brothers and grandchildren, its time to stop and realise the damages and begin to make a change.

I wanna know what you guys think, as a parent, sister, brother or passer-by. How can we fix this issue and make it aware to everyone. Suggest something parents can do or just have your say.

Did you know that body image issues have starting to develop at such a young age?
