Kyle Denman ~ She is Spilling Her Champagne

Kyle Denman ~ She is Spilling Her Champagne

 Kyle Denman’s latest design inspiration is a woman spilling her champagne awarded him Young Designer at Fashion Designers’ and Craft Makers’ Network (FDC-YDA) Soiree in New York City. He is a young fashion designer that is passionate, creative, and determined.  He took the theme Rolling Twenties to create a timeless classic modern gown.

Designing

The gown took the theme and champagne significant during the 1920s to create a look of spilling champagne. The theme and gown bring the relevance and fashion forward. The gold bust is made from vegan leather. This look takes on the color of freshly poured champagne. This brings a richness and elegance. Taking the flapper texture to a new modern look. The 30 yards of organza is hand sewn to create the bubbles from the spilling champagne.  This creation is ébullition (French for bubbling). The small hand-sewn pearls give a nice texture and representation of smaller bubbles in champagne. This is an elegant avant-garde gown bringing the theme full circle.

Where Fashion Design Started

Denman changed his life career from a degree in political science to fashion.  He was new to sewing, but that did not stop him from changing his career. He is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) and an associate professor at FIDM. Project Runway awarded Denman grand prize in the ReMake It Work Contest. 

His approach to design is sensual, sexy, modern, with a hint of classic remaining. The woman he designs for feels beautiful, powerful, and elegant. He is a powerhouse that will be one of the top designers in America.

Balancing Life with Health and Wellness

He works hard on success every day. The one thing he does each day to make it successful is, “Every morning, I wake up and have a cup of coffee while I journal.  Journaling is incredibly important for me to collect all of my thoughts, both intellectual and creative.  I will write, sketch, and list things and people for which I am grateful.  This helps me stay humble and helps me recognize the important people in my life who have helped me get to where I am today.  I also pick an outfit that matches the mood I want to have.  I have studied a bit about the metaphysics of fashion, and it’s really astounding.  I also like to accessorize my look with a watch, which is my go-to accessory.  Once I have that on, I am ready for the day!” His has a dedication to staying focused and balanced in life.

Balancing life with the stress of the fashion industry is key to keeping the focus. Denman finds balance by, “Fashion design is an incredibly personal form of art.  Whenever I make a garment or a collection, I really invest my time and inject a bit of myself, my mind, and my heart into it.  I try to tell a story.  I think that’s what makes fashion so profound—it is so personal.  Because of the work, I do as a teacher, the confluence of work and personal life is incredibly dramatic.  In order to balance these two areas, I try to organize myself as much as possible.  I have a to-do list with me at all times, and my planner is color-coated and matches a calendar that I have in my room.  I try to never have free time, either.  Instead, time is always dedicated towards something, even if it means time to relax or time to spend with friends.  I also think maintaining a stress-free life is a mindset.  Rather than think that I am busy and stressed, I think that I am hard-at-work and focused on my career.” This shows in his ability to stay well-rounded as a step to staying healthy in a busy life. 

Denman focuses on healthy living with a focus on his mental health. He states, “Fashion design is an incredibly stressful field.  Staying healthy can be very difficult to do—oftentimes, I will leave my apartment as soon as the sun rises and will not return until after midnight.  The industry is long days.  Because my schedule is so busy, I try to stay healthy by staying mentally healthy as well as physically healthy.  Besides exercising (my friend trains me here-and-there and helps record my progress). I will often read books or scholarly articles, listen to podcasts or TED Talks, or visit museums on free days to continuously stimulate my mind.  Additionally, I try to eat as healthy as possible.  Sometimes, it may just be some packed vegetables and hummus for lunch because of my schedule, but I really try to keep up a healthy lifestyle. However, I know that I can always be healthier (I just love baking homemade chocolate chip cookies!).”

Achievements

He approaches life and success with a strong force and determination. His best achievement to date is, “receiving the title of Young Fashion Designer of the Year is an incredible achievement.  Truly, it is an honor.  It was also amazing to be recognized as the Grand Prize Winner of the Project Runway Remake It Work Contest.  However, I would also consider being a teacher an achievement that I hold very close to my heart.  I now teach fashion design through a nonprofit called Freedom and Fashion.  I teach young women who are survivors of human trafficking, homelessness, abuse, assault, and other injustices.  These young students and designers are so special to me, and being able to spend time with them is an achievement to me—they are so talented and are so kind.  It’s really an honor to be in their presence and call them students and friends.  I love watching them grow as designers and as people; I can honestly say my heart is so full when I am with them.” He brings his skill, energy, and power to other providing future opportunities for many.

Future Goals

I would love to continue designing for celebrity clients and entering fashion shows around the world.  Being able to witness the transformation of a garment or a collection is really special.  From idea to sketch to sample to completed look, the transformative appeal of fashion is undeniable.  To have the ability to be so creative is amazing, and I feel incredibly lucky to have the chance to be so creative every day.  I hope to expand upon this creativity, continue to work hard and working with Freedom and Fashion.  A long-term dream of mine has always been to work on Dancing with the Stars as one of the designers.

FDC-YDA

The young designers are ages 9-25 years. The vision is to present an international platform for dynamic young designers. This is to help them to find their niche as people and become a brand in their own right. Increasing the numbers and visibility of young and exceptionally gifted multi-cultural designers. Then encourage them to reach their true potential, by rewarding those who excel both creatively and academically.

Watch for Denman on the runway he is a force that will bring fashion forward with a classic women designs.

Wrapped In Love ~ Malan Breton

Wrapped In Love ~ Malan Breton

Malan Breton opens Style Fashion Week in New York on the USS Intrepid.  This is the second chapter, Edelweiss, in a three chapter collection for spring summer 2018.  His collection influences are from Chopin, butterflies, nature, and music presented by Kristine W.

SFWNY 4chion Lifestyle

The Lament for Icarus, a painting Icarus representing being wrapped in love by Nymphs on his deathbed, is well represented in the collection at New York Fashion Week. Many fabrics and designs create a movement that is enveloping or flows with that dramatic effect.  Malan Breton SFWNY 4chion Lifestyle

The fabric prints and the appliques are representative of a beautiful spring day.  The fabric print is perfectly designed to create a scene with the sense of a morning breeze with the movement. Mason Grammer looks stunning on the runway in off the shoulder gown. The movement and scenery much like a walk through nature near a creek. The appliques bring an alluring texture and representation of the nature theme. Watch for the collection on the red carpet soon.

Malan Breton SFWNY 4chion Lifestyle

Breton is a designer that knows the beauty of a woman’s form. His gowns bring sexiness and confidence to any woman. This season Breton brings suit for his womenswear.  The suits add a touch of femininity and keep the woman’s form well represented. His suits incorporate the tailoring that he is known for in his menswear.

Malan Breton SFWNY 4chion Lifestyle

The menswear collection inspiration continues with blues found throughout. Blue is a pigment that is the rarest found in nature, the men’s collection draws in the night-time with hints of blues. The romance period from Chopin is clear in the collars on the jacket and dress shirts.

Malan Breton SFWNY 4chion Lifestyle

 

This is a collection for all with a touch of romance from the Chopin era, beautiful natural scenery, and movement, and will wrap the world in love.

Los Angeles story chapter, the Seven Deadly Sins. This runway brings the story back to hope, light, and empowerment with the use of color. The Phoenix in the triplet chapter story.

The collections’ stories inspiration is the 1930s, the loss of hope and death. The stories draw from Charlie Chaplin‘s 1930 films including City Lights and Modern Times. The collections present the story with perfection in fabrics, treatments, performances, and colors.

The fabrics are Asian inspired. The fabrics are organzas, silk Charmeuse, and recycled piettes. The piettes created from recycled aluminum cans. Breton uses a company in Twain that cuts, colors, and treats the metal.

Breton says, “I do my best to protect the environment when creating my designs.” This metallic dress moments and texture are extraordinary. Breton states, “the dress movement comes from the way I weighted and draped the dress. I am so grateful it turned out so well.”

The color in this chapter is green (earth and rebirth), gold (prosperity and richness), and deep blue (continuous flow of life). The floral prints bring a beauty and a new beginning to the final chapter of the story.

Breton’s chapters stay true to his aesthetics elegance. The men’s silhouettes are very on point. This collection Breton styled and designed himself. His stylist for several seasons, Montgomery Frazier The Image Guru, said, “we do not put anyone in anything that is ill-fitting. If it is ill fitted they do not wear it. The textures and fabrics fit Breton’s catch line ‘wherever you go shine.’ The fabrics are rich, opulent, exquisite tailoring, and he is about the fashion. Being here with Breton is so glamorous at Style Fashion Week with the beautiful outdoor setting and jazz music.”

Breton develops his menswear after his own experience. He states, “when I was a ballet dancer in London and on Broadway every time I lifted my arm up when wearing a suit I would lose part of my sleeve. I knew I had to figure out how to cut a suit so I do not lose part of my sleeve. I trained at Turnbull And Asser, the suit makers for the Prince of Wales. He says, “I incorporate the English traditions in my designs. I learned there with my development for the men’s suits.”

The fashion show stayed true to the designers’ aesthetic while completing the story started in New York. The beauty, tailoring, and signature detailing tell the story of hope, equality, and empowerment. Concluding with the image of renewing and shining wherever you are.
