Often times, when reading American fashion print media such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour or Elle, it all seems to blend together into one magazine covering the same topics, in the same way, with the same text, models and photographers. The similarities between these magazines are endless. Today I analyzed an American fashion/lifestyle magazine as well as a French fashion/lifestyle magazine to look at the similarities and differences between our print media here vs. print media outside of the U.S.
Hi everyone and Happy October!! This week I was challenged to complete a 5 day style diary detailing fashion trends, fashion news, and lifestyle events. First, I’d like to share with you a fashion trend I’ve been spotting on the street and the runways alike – sheer. Anything and everything sheer can be worn on its own with nothing underneath or can be layered to create a more modest look while still following the latest trend.

In the digital age we now live in the exclusivity of the runway experience no longer exists. With live shows broadcast on Facebook or Instagram, and Vogue Runway uploading images of full collections on their website just hours after the show anyone can now take part. However, these shows of the future seem to be referencing only the past.
Last week I had to attend an event for school where we needed to dress professional; however, I wanted my unique style to shine through. This is something I aim to achieve every time I get dressed for my internship or a professional school event, but it can be hard to find the balance between being yourself and staying within the bounds of professional wear.
New York Fashion Week is well underway with only two days left of shows, but already some major spring trends have emerged. I was fortunate enough to attend my first show ever (yay!!) at Skylight Clarkson Square on Sunday morning to see Francesca Liberatore on behalf of Halfstack magazine, read my show review HERE. The show was amazing; full of muted colors, classic plaid, and sheer lace embellishments – just some of the amazing, upcoming spring trends.
During our first Fashion in the Media class, we watched The September Issue which gives an inside look to the publishing of Vogue’s highly anticipated September issue. This documentary follows Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington closely, showing their work relationship and creative process. It even gives an inside look at Anna Wintour’s personal life with her daughter making appearances in the documentary.
Hi Garment Gardeners!
I can’t believe we’re already two weeks into August, which sadly means summer is ending. However, I am so excited because this means I move to New York City in only TEN DAYS!! I finally get to intern at a fashion company I have dreamed about working for, and get to live in a tiny apartment in midtown the size of my closet at home. Needless to say it’s going to be tough to decide which clothes have to be left at home.
This past weekend I went on a road trip with my family to Niagara Falls, Ontario, and finally had the chance to try out my new lemon print dress, and let me tell you I am OBSESSED.
Happy first week of summer! I’m so excited to start sharing my style with all of you!
