LG Fashion Week: BASCH by Brandon S/S 2011

Source:
Project Runway Canada alumni Brandon Dwyer showed off his Spring/Summer 2011 collection at LG Fashion week and wowed the audience with his elegant and edgy pieces. Opening the show with a white-hot ensemble, you could sense this show was going to be about detail and energy. With a soft pallet of greens and pinks, mixed with stark white and black, the designer showed off his ability to work with his fabrics and allowed them to fall and drape naturally.The show itself was also very enjoyable to watch, choosing mainstream music as a background allowing the clothes to speak for themselves, and not to mention model Renee Thompson in the pink hat that worked the runway so hard she got a round of applause.After the show was over, many in the audience gave him a standing ovation and guests instantly began to talk about this being one of the best shows of the week and we fully agreed. Models were styled appropriately to the outfit they were wearing avoiding any forced, over the top look. Many designers should take note with this, as detailing can really make or break a show.

Jim Searle and Chris Tyrell of Hoax Couture travelled to Zambia, supported by the Stephen Lewis Foundation, to visit some of the projects run by the foundation and to search for fabrics. Well, they found 45 prints in an African market place, and 25 of Canada’s top designers used the fabric to create pieces for the closing show of this year's LG Fashion Week.The show which happened last friday, was a fundraiser for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, and tickets sales were donated to raise funds for various grassroots organizations that are supported by the Foundation. The seats were filled with Canadian talent, who came to support Canadian designers and a good cause. The clothes were amazing, and were highlighted by some celebrity models; Dina Pugliese from Breakfast Television, singer Keisha Chante, and Tara Spencer-Nairn from Corner Gas. Also in the show was fellow blogger Dejana from Shopsteruim.com.For more information about the Dare to Wear Love show, or the Stephen Lewis Foundation click here.

HER BIGGER BREAK: Getting a phone call three days after leaving Self Service to go audition to be the house drummer for the Xenomania production team. “I didn’t really know what Xenomania was, or who Brian [Higgins] was, so I Wikipedia’d him,” Florrie told PonyStep. “I came down on the Thursday then again the next day, and he offered me the job.”

It's a Wrap: Fashion Week Panel Discussion @ The Drake

Source: Now that LG Fashion Week is over, its time to look back at what was sent down the runway, and this was done on Saturday with a panel discussion with fashion experts, held at The Drake Hotel. Moderated by Lessa Butler from the F-List, the panel included Anita Clarke from I Want-I Got, the National Post's Style editor Nathalie Atkinsin, Magnolia Boutique owner Juan Carlos Gaona, and LOVAS Creative Director Wesley Badanjak. The panel had a frank discussion about everything from IMG's bigger involvement in LG Fashion Week, to off-site shows vs. on-site shows, to the importance of bloggers. It was great to see an open discussion for topics, and hope more panel discussion will happen in the future.We recorded most of the discussion and have uploaded for everyone who couldn't make it to the Drake Hotel that morning.
 

The singer has teamed up with H&M to produce a visual for new single ‘Too Young to Remember’, which will be out in the UK on March 8.

Wear it dry, and you’ve got your standard dusting of color—classic and predictable (in a good way). But wet! Wearing it wet opens a whole new world of opportunity. “What you’re doing is bringing out the pigmented nature of the shadow,” makeup artist Vincent Oquendo says. “Whenever I wet an eye shadow, it’s when I really want it to pop—but it really has to be a special kind of product to be able to blend after it sets. Because a lot of the times when it sets, you get streaking.” Nobody wants that. In order to avoid any wet shadow mishaps, follow these guidelines:

Product

First, go with the obvious: any eye shadow labeled wet-to-dry. The Nars Dual-Intensity line is the standout—the singles come in 12 different shimmery shades, and there’s a corresponding brush (then there’s the newly released Dual Intensity Blush line, which was all over Fashion Week—but that’s a product for another post). Burberry also makes a few very versatile shades specifically for this in their Wet & Dry Silk Shadows. And the technique-specific eye shadow category isn’t just a ploy to get you to buy more product. “You can’t just use any eye shadow for this,” Vincent says. “Certain ones will harden up on top and become unusable because they’re not made for this.”

Baked shadows are also fair game—we’re fans of Laura Mercier’s Baked Eye Colour Wet/Dry and Lorac’s Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in particular.

For more advanced players, Vincent suggests moving on to straight pigment (MAC or even OCC’s Pure Cosmetic Pigments). With the added moisture, they’ll become easier to layer with other products. For a look with more depth, try using a cream shadow as a based before swiping with a wet powder shadow. “It’s like insurance,” Vincent says. “You’re doubling your wearability.

Brush
This all depends on exactly what you want to do. “Mind the resistance,” Vincent says, particularly if you’re looking for uniform color across the lid. “I tend to recommend a blender brush, which is the brush that looks like a feather duster. If you do it with a stiff brush, you’re defeating yourself before you even start. The joy of a wet-to-dry is you have to get it right amount of product loaded up, and then it blends itself. If the brush is too stiff, it will leave the shadow streaky and then much harder to control.”

However, if tightlining or waterlining is in the cards, a much thinner brush is required accordingly.

Liquid
Do not, repeat, do not put eye drops, water, or any other sort of liquid directly on your eye shadow. This’ll screw up your product for later use. “Lately, I’ve been wetting the brush with the Glossier Soothing Face Mist, but Evian Mineral Water Spray is good for sensitive eyes,” Vincent says. If the top of your powder does get a little hardened by wet application, there’s a trick to remove it: Get a clean mascara spoolie and “exfoliate” your compact, Vincent recommends. This won’t crack the compact and will make it ready to go once more.
