My favorite part of Funny Face: Audrey Hepburn’s wild dance in the Parisian beatnik café.
Oh man, I know I’m late on this…but I’m in love with Wildfox’s Clueless lookbook. As y’all know, I love a good homage, and this one isn’t messin around. Not only are the clothes spot on, but the moments they chose are perfect.
I love Clueless, I love Wildfox, and I love this lookbook. Now I’m off to buy some white knee socks.
Designer Christine Rebich recently caught my eye with her unique creations, and after interviewing her, I find her more fascinating than ever.
She’s inspired by human perceptions rather than, say, colors, and she speaks about finding humor in Catholicism, the beauty of individuality, the body as an object, and the need to create something that doesn’t yet exist.

I attended the NC State textile program for fashion development…I was in a terrible relationship at that time which I blame for ruining my experience. And I felt the textile program was too corporate for my taste. I decided to come back home and do what I knew I could, which was art.

How long have you been designing?
I used to make clothes for my American Girl dolls and Barbies because my mom would never buy me the ridiculous expensive outfits from the magazines. I had an aunt that helped me learn to sew when I was about five or six. I bought myself a very small pink plastic sewing machine from a thrift store with all of my tooth fairy money—mostly two dollar bills and fifty cent pieces—and taught myself on that piece of crap. I attended Catholic school for seven years. I refused to wear clothes outside of our …CONTINUE →
This poster for Mad Men season 6 is not only a nice change from the previous seasons, it’s also like the cover of a Nancy Drew book: clues everywhere!
Don Draper AND Dick Whitman! Cops and an airplane! Mystery lady hand! Bossy street signs!
Looks like season 6 is gonna be crazy. Will Don murder someone, run from the police, escape New York, and go on to live as a new identity somewhere? Or maybe the whole poster will end up just being the same as some brilliant idea of Don’s in a meeting room.
I was already excited. Now I’m also pretending to be a detective.
