    IT’S EVERYWHERE! Why do guys think that Ed Hardy is an instant recipe for looking cool? It’s so sickening to see guys everywhere, especially that certain category of club goers, wearing Ed Hardy like “it’s going out of style.”

    Well guess what guys.. you have successfully managed to make it go out of style. Oh yes, you better believe it… it’s done with.

    It’s one thing to want to fit in, but when a certain trend becomes so common that it starts to take away any sense of individuality, that is when it starts to make me wanna puke.

    Sorry if you are a big Ed Hardy fan and wear it religiously, this is just my opinion. It’s my blog and i’ll bitch if i want to 🙂

    Somewhat Disappointing:The Future of Fashion: Celebrating Five Years of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund – Fashion at the Park, Dallas, Texas


    This was my first time attending Fashion at the Park (kinda like Fashion week for Dallas, happens every year at North Park Center,) so I did expect some good things because their marketing design, brand image and caliber of sponsors seemed very high.

    This show the 8pm Saturday show.

    “A runway fashion show to celebrate five years of the Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund – the fashion show will feature multiple designers who have been lauded as award finalists and featured in Vogue, including Doo.Ri, Phillip Lim, Michael Bastian, Marchesa, Thakoon and Peter Som.
    Personal appearances include Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, Thakoon Panichgul and Peter Som.”

    The vibe was decent. They were heavily staffed. Show started with a pretty cool video about the struggling fashion designers and how CFDA gives them guidance and a jumpstart so they can run a successful business. However when the models started strutting out with the first designers collection, I kinda had the “is this it?” empty feeling hoping that the show would progress to blow me away. It didnt.

    The models weren’t terrible, but not impressive (considering this is one of the biggest fashion events that takes place every year in dallas). Some of them had awkward walks. I did spot Chantal from America’s Next Top Model (cycle 9) which was pretty cool. But she happened to blend in pretty well with the rest of the rigid and awkward (and not in a good high fashion kind of way) models.

    I mean… I know this is supposedly “high fashion” and the models have to have a pretty straightforward walk devoid of any extra “ooomph” but not to the point where they are making the designer’s garments look like sweats.

    Speaking of the designers, my favorites were Marchesa and Philip Lim. That being said I didn’t really see anything that would bring out the “ooohs and aaahs” from me. These are supposed to be some promising designers with a bright future, but the clothes lacked opulence and class and just the overall X factor.

    Even the runway shows and collections I have seen come from countries like Pakistan and India are far more impressive. Except they don’t get to have the formal training and academic edge like these designers do, and most of their work doesn’t get seen in the international market.

    I mean yes most of this seemed like ready to wear and it wasn’t supposed to be overly intricate couture stuff, but it was missing something!

    Again my opinion of the collections might be clouded because of the overall feel of the show with consisted of a not too impressive stage setup, OK models, and very commercial music!

    To be fair, I’ll attend more of these to see if this was a one off thing or most of these Fashion at the Park shows happen to lack that allure that I was expecting to see.

    But I must say, the appetizers were great, i thoroughly enjoyed the lamb and fish cones. And the cocktail servers quick and friendly.

    I would definitely go again!
