When I watched the local news 2 days ago, I was surprised to know that aside from Monique Lhuillier there is another Filipina who's making a big name in the international fashion industry.

Lotte Delima-Edwards, is also a Cebuana designer that is currently based in Singapore. Last July 25, she presented her “Japan in My Mind” collection at the Plantation Bay, Cebu. The collection was inspired by the geisha’s feminine sensuality and features flowing dresses and inricate beadwork consisting of mother of pearls and coconut beads. The designer revealed that all her pieces are made from Philippine materials.

Here's a photo taken after the jump. Again, I am proud to be a Filipino!

As you would notice, the fashion trends nowadays are just reincarnation of the fashion styles before we were born. They are the improved versions designed by those who have gone before us. The fashion styles that I will present in a series are ageless fashion styles because they still exist through the test of time.

1930: Little Black Dress (LBD)
black dress,fashion trend

The little black dress was first seen in May 1926 issue of Vogue magazine when Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel drew the design of the dress for the said issue. First, it was called “Chanel’s Ford” because it is compared to the affordable black Ford automobile.

“Chanel’s Ford” rocked the fashion world in both positive and negative ways. Chanel made a bold effort in her design by choosing black as the color of the dress. Some people had a bad impression about it because black clothing was linked to clergy, servants, or death. However, most of the women were allured by its simplicity and its cost. Accessorized with pearl necklace or worn with high-heels, everyone can pull it off with flying colors.

The popularity of little black dresses became uncontrollable. After its first appearance in Vogue magazine, celebrities also succumbed to LBD phenomenal trend. A little black dress made by Givenchy was worn by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 movie Breakfast at Tifffany’s. It was also used by Max Fleischer as the outfit of the infamous Betty Boop cartoon character. Since then, little black dresses are worn by middle-class to elite women in every dinner, cocktail party and night out.

To cope up with this fashion demand, almost every well-known designer included a little black dress in their collection by the end of the 20th century.

Gothic fashion is usually stereotyped as a dark, sometimes morbid, eroticized fashion and style of dress. Typical Gothic fashion includes black dyed hair and black clothes and both male and female goths wear dark eyeliner and dark fingernails. Styles are often inspired from the Elizabethans and Victorians.(Wikipedia)

This October, two magazines opted to have a fashion showdown across their pages. Vogue Italy and Flair magazine let every reader decide on whose Gothic fashion is the best.




The October issue of Vogue Italia features a sort of a black widow-harlequin look. The models were dressed in see-through black lace with diamond patters, chiffon and long evening gloves. They also used black balloons and grapes as accessories. One can clearly see that they have a sort of retro-modern, avant-garde, Gothic image.








On the other hand, Flair magazine had a set of pictures called "Gotica". The pictures are mostly black and white with splashes of color. A model is photographed with pale bare-chested men who are made up to look like zombies who seem to be battling for her soul. The backgrounds are eerie and sometimes ghostly, feels like you're in a horror movie.

Diane von Furstenberg

Diane von Furstenberg called her show "Rock Goddess".The look was "effortlessly seductive" with voluminous shapes, airy chiffons and long, flowing dresses. Hippie-inspired looks were laid against more tailored constructions. Multicolored whimsical frocks added to a musical joy, while flowers and feathers were a unique touch for the queen of the wrap dress.




Hervé Léger

Aside from the iconic cinched mini, this season brought forth innovative fabrics, geometric color blocking and leather. A beaded one-shoulder minidress glistened on the runway.This season brought along the introduction of swimwear, an apt move for a brand associated with sexy.




DKNY

The Spring 2009 collection is an homage to the past with 80s neons, exaggerated bows and a nod of optimism, looking forward with brights and tech fibers. But the brand's signature pieces emerged-the jumpsuit, the DKNY tee, vests, utilitarian pants, the staple trench, denim suits and the essential jersey dress.




Costello Tagliapietra

Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra offered up a very strong collection of handmade dresses, silk tops, and strapless winners. They even masterfully utilized ultrasuede - a material Halston used to conquer. The pastel and turquoise color selection was spot-on, and shoes were impressive.




Jonathan Saunders

The spring collection looked nothing like the fall, and oohs and ahhs were let out as the crop of huge models like Suvi, Sasha, and Magdalena paraded around the giant gallery space wearing everything from technicolor print dresses to lively skirts and kimono-inspired jackets. The palette was intelligent, the patterns seemed fresh, tailoring was impeccable.




Lela Rose

Aside from her staple feminine frocks, Rose delivered trousers and separates for preppy glamour. Abstract plaids, played out in heavy coats and floaty chiffons, were a unique complement to chic monochromatic linen shorts, pants and skirts. Ikat prints and a kaleidoscope of color exuded a sense of African tribal wear. Ruffles, tucks and bows served as subtle details. Jewel tones played an integral role this season, with yellow, sapphire, jade, and opal emerging from Rose's treasure chest.




Gap

For the Gap this season, Patrick Robinson said the collection was all about "a new American optimism." Optimism could be found in a pervasive casual elegance and especially in the vibrant color blocked swimwear. A women's blazer made out of jersey had a sophistication with ease effect.




Preen

The show opened with a white one-shoulder cocktail dress with cutouts at the ribs inset with a wide mesh. Next came a denim-looking silk button-down blouse tucked into matching genie pants with slouchy pockets and fabric pooling at the ankles. The rest were tiny dresses in white, red, or black, some with caged backs, laces crisscrossing the shoulder blades, others with mesh slips peeking a few inches below the hem, followed by weightless silk or chiffon cut into drawstring-waist dresses and anoraks that floated on the breeze in the model's wake.
