Brandon Maxwell, Stylist to Lady Gaga, to Launch Line

3 hours 24 min ago
Brandon Maxwell will be a new name on the New York Fashion Week schedule in September. The stylist, whose most famous client is Lady Gaga, is launching a designer ready-to-wear collection for spring, the show date and format still to be determined. Maxwell, who has considerable editorial styling experience, met Gaga through Nicola Formichetti and has been working with her for several years. He was responsible for her wardrobe on her Cheek to Cheek tour with Tony Bennett, as well as the white gown and red gloves by Alaïa that Gaga wore for her “Sound of Music” tribute at this year’s Oscars. Do not expect to see a meat dress from Maxwell’s own line. The collection is geared toward evening with an emphasis on lean black suiting and gowns that are more democratically designed than what Gaga is known to wear. “It’s important that it’s humble and taken seriously,” said Maxwell. “I want women to want to wear the clothes, and I want people to say it was well-made and well thought out.”

Germany Establishes First Fashion Council

6 hours 28 min ago
BERLIN — The long-awaited Fashion Council Germany is getting primed for action. The first national organization devoted to supporting and bolstering the interest in Germany’s burgeoning designer community, the FCG will be unveiling its first initiatives at the Zeitmagazin/Vogue Fashion & Style Conference Thursday during Berlin Fashion Week. Founded in January as a registered association by 10 people from the media, communications, retail, fair and design sectors, the FCG is still in its pre-membership and official funding stages. However, as president Christiane Arp, editor in chief of German Vogue, and managing director Marcus Kurz, founder and director of production agency Nowadays, explained, it has been possible to get a jump-start with several pilot projects before the council expects to be fully up and running. One is a prelude to the FCG’s planned fellowship program, a juried, two-year long mentoring program including financial support slated to start with up to three designers in fall 2016. In cooperation with the Berlin Senate and using funds previously slated for the Senate’s Start Your Fashion Business competition, two Berlin designers will already be enrolled in a mentoring program this year. In June, Arp also attended the European Parliament’s first high-level conference on “The Future of Cultural and Creative Industries in Europe”

According to creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, the project allows them to “depict through our eyes the beauties of the city of Rome, constant source of inspiration for us. We love its beauty, its contrasts, its multiple facets, its ability to change in time and to project itself in the future.”

Hillary Clinton’s New Hampshire Swing

Sun, 07/05/2015 - 19:17
Reporters trailing Hillary Clinton during Saturday’s Fourth of July parade in Gorham, N.H. were cordoned off with rope, but the presidential candidate was considerably more hospitable with an at-home chat for 300 locals earlier in the day in Glen, N.H. The former Secretary of State started the morning by getting up-close-and-personal with a thoroughly-vetted circle of voters at the hilltop home of Julie and Michael Levine. What was Clinton’s first official campaign stop was originally planned for The Notchland Inn in Hart County where Rep. Ed Butler has a time share. After Clinton nixed that plan due to spotty Internet service, innkeeper Mark Dindorf dialed up his friends the Levines. Away on Maine’s Monhegen Island, their teenage daughter Dana back at home needed some convincing that the Secret Service would in fact be stopping by for a recon mission. Aside from the as-New-Hampshire-goes-so-goes-the-nation element of the location, the White Mountains enclave is among the first pockets of the country to report Election Day results. Dressed in a fitted, tailored red blazer and navy pants, Clinton served up an All-American message, as in steering the country to a better place for future generations like her granddaughter Charlotte, Julie Levine said. “She talked about

DENIM NIGHTS: Isko, the Turkish denim manufacturer for brands such as Diesel and Guess, celebrated the winners of the second Isko I-Skool talent search competition in Milan on Thursday night. Organized and sponsored by Isko, the competition launched in November 2014 in London is split into the categories Denim Design and Denim Marketing. It involves international academic institutions from Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, the U.K. and the U.S. Students competing in the Denim Design category were required to interpret denim in four different ways: bohemian blue, couture denim, active jeanswear and future fit. For Denim Marketing, the brief was to develop a complete marketing platform for a denim concept, including graphic design for product identity and a comprehensive communications strategy. During the award ceremony, called “Blue Starry Night,” held at celebrity chef Carlo Cracco’s restaurant Carlo e Camilla in Segheria, the winners presented their creations during a fashion show, which was judged by an international jury. In addition, award winners in the categories of Bling-Bling Denim, Promising Talent, Design With Crystal Elements, Best Wash and Creative Garment Communication Design were announced.

London Men’s Wear Designer Nicomede Talavera Puts Brand on Ice

Fri, 07/03/2015 - 10:25
TALAVERA TAKES A BREAK: Nicomede Talavera is putting his brand on hold immediately. He will not be showing or selling a spring 2016 collection, nor will his fall 2015 collection be available for retail. “Due to personal circumstances, I have taken the decision to not show a collection for SS16 [spring 2016] and to take time to now decide how to channel my creativity going forward,” the designer said in a statement Friday. “I am extremely grateful for all of the support and belief over the last few years and for everybody who has been part of this journey. It has been an incredible experience and learning process,” he added. Talavera graduated from the master’s of arts fashion course at Central Saint Martins in 2013, and founded his label soon after. His stockists include Dover Street Market, Joyce, Opening Ceremony, LN-CC, Space Mue and Machine-A. He has received support from Topman’s Man showcase, and taken part in the Fashion East collective presentations during London Collections: Men. Earlier this year, he was the recipient of sponsorship and mentoring from the Center for Fashion Enterprise in London.
