A Little More Pepe on the Walls.

Don’t you often wonder if it took a group of people or just one person to create an art piece like this on a New York City block?



In this case, only two hands touch this city block with paint to create the mural in the photos you see here.  The artistic mind behind it, Lauryn Pepe.

A couple of months ago I meet this free spirited woman who keeps you entertained with her stories and personality. Once I saw some of her work, there was no doubt in my mind that she would be on TheRomeoReport.com.  Lauryn’s work ranges from painting on common pieces of furniture making them one of a kind,  creating wallpaper for places like Hollister in Soho to murals that take up an entire city blocks. Read More.

Attending The Fashion Trade Show Coterie.

As a fashion buyer you want more than just watching the models walk up and down the runways. The buyers need to touch the clothes, they need prices, fabrics used, etc. The sooner that information is available to them the better they can tell their fashion stories to the customers.

This is where trade shows come in, Coterie to be specific. For the buyers, fashion editors, and students that couldn’t attend the fashion shows, the trade show gives them up close and personal access without the glitz and glamour.

After fashion week the serious work begins for the designers and buyers.

This video shows you what a visit to Coterie can be. My co-worker, Isidoro, and myself  spent last Monday morning getting a glimpse of what our favorite designers created, visited old friends and previewed what we’ll be wearing come next fall!

I would say it was a morning well spent!

Fashionable Art.

Click on each image above to purchase from Amazon.com Enjoy!

Fashionable Art can mean different things to several people. It can be the clothes one wears, the shoes we walk in or the accessories used to complete an outfit. What about taking fashion and making it something we can put onto our walls. If some of us could, we would take fashion magazine pages and frame them. That may lack some class though. Alternatives you ask for, Illustrations and graphic design are some. Illustrators like Andy Warhol, Julie Verhoeven, Jean-Philippe Delhomme, Renaldo Barnette and Michael Roberts have used fashion to showcase their visions and talents with colors and shapes. They are just a few of the many artists that allows us to put Fashionable Art on our walls.

I Don’t Think So: Taking New Year’s To A New Level

Valentino has dresses fashion royalty for decades.  I’ve never taught the brand would create something that would have me raising an eyebrow until I saw this…

Valentino-Shining-Flower-Tux Tote
Valentino-Shining-Flower-Tux Tote Purchase Here

The bag got noticed on this season of the Gossip Girl for all the wrong reasons. It looks as though it was a accessory class project that went wrong.  Ohh and the price $4,495, adding insult to injury. Sometimes, too much of a good thing, is just too much. On the flip side, if you’re indecisive about what to wear for New Year’s, this bag is four outfits in one. Sequins, studs, ruffles and a bow. Just show up in your underwear and the bag.
