Royal Wedding ~ Two People Fell In Love and We all Showed Up

Royal Wedding ~ Two People Fell In Love and We all Showed Up

Two people fell in love and we all showed up for a royal wedding. His Royal Highness Duke Henry Charles Albert David (Harry) married Her Royal Highness Duchess Rachel Meghan Markle (Meghan) of Sussex. This fairy tale day began 18 months ago with a blind date set up by Meghan’s friend.

Wedding Style

The wedding took place at Windsor Castle at St George’s Chapel. The flowers and plants designed by Philippa Craddock include beech, birch, hornbeam, as well as white garden roses (late Princess Diana’s favorite), Myrtle (represents love and marriage) a tradition for all royal wedding bouquets, peonies and foxgloves. Some flowers came from Princess Diana’s garden as well. Prince William sat next to an empty seat in honor of their mother’s memory.  The chapel is a high-medieval Gothic style. This is a beautiful place to share vows with friends and family.

The dress code for the bride includes dress must have sleeve, lace, and be white. The 600 guest to the wedding dress for the day is for men military uniform, morning coats, or lounge suits and women’s dress for the day is choosing a day dress with hat.

Many guests including George and Amal Clooney, Oprah, Elton John, David and Victoria Beckham, arrive in the best finery. The best-dressed guest is David Beckham. He wore a Dior Homme charcoal grey super 130’s wool twill morning coat and pants, a light grey super 150’s wool twill double-breasted waistcoat, a white 200/2 Egyptian cotton poplin shirt, a grey silk satin tie, a grey silk satin pocket square and derbies in black calfskin leather. He seems to upstage the groom, Duke Harry.

Duke Harry wore his frock-coat uniform of the Blues and Royals. Duchess Meghan wore Claire Waight Keller Givenchy boat neck neckline silk crepe and 3/4 sleeves. 2019 spring collection, Queen Mary’s diamond Bandeau tiara, and Cartier jewels.  She looked stunning in the beautiful gown. Her veil was absolutely the show stopper of the day. It was cathedral length, made from silk tulle, and featured a trim of hand-embroidered flowers from the commonwealths, Wintersweet from the Kensington Palace, and California poppy, with crops of wheat representing love and charity. Her veil is well crafted by hand and hundreds of hours of work.

Her makeup was beautiful and light. This added a sense of innocence and you could still see her freckles. Duchess Meghan gave six of her dear friends and sister-in-law Princess Catherine gold disc bespoke bracelets called the Kensington Bracelet designed by Zofia Day.

Wedding Ceremony 

Duchess Meghan entered the chapel nave alone. This was a strong representation that she is an independent woman and a change from tradition for royal weddings. Prince Charles walked to the last pew then he steps aside while Duchess Meghan walks to Duke Harry. This again shows her strong independence and strength. Duke Harry thanks his father, looks at his bride, and says, “You look amazing, and you look so beautiful. “They exchange rings, something not traditionally done. The rings made from gifted Welch gold from Queen Elizabeth. The ceremony was one of love and commitment.  The most Revd. and Rt Honored Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury,  officiated. Duke Harry could hardly look away from his bride.

The couple took a carriage ride around the town of Windsor after sharing their first public kiss outside the chapel. They then enjoyed a ride in an electric silver-blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero to the reception at Frogmore House. Duke Harry changed into a tuxedo and Duchess Meghan wearing bespoke Stella McCartney high neck lily-white gown in silk crepe with an aquamarine ring that once belonged to Princess Diana.

Wedding Cake

The reception included a beautiful wedding cake. Clarie Ptak designed the wedding cake. The wedding cake features:

  • Elderflowers syrup using elderflowers from the Queen’s residence
  • A light sponge cake uniquely formulated for the couple
  • Filling Amalfi lemon curd and elderflower buttercream
  • Decorated with Swiss meringue buttercream and 140 fresh flowers that are in season

Elton John played a set of four songs after Harry asked, “Anyone here know how to play the piano?” Taking away from tradition Duchess Meghan gave a speech. The tradition is for the father of the bride to make a speech, but Duchess of Sussex (Duchess Meghan). This wedding brought modern traditions fusing with royal traditions to a new forefront.  The event concluded with fireworks.

Congrats to the newlyweds on their wedding day. There is no official notice of their honeymoon.

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.

The New York chapter is Everywhere at the End of Time. This chapter  takes us to the current times in the world now and brings about empowerment. The empowerment of women and those being  poorly treated. The entire show from the dancers, to the opening model, Nykhor Paul bring the story to life.

The runway included celebrities models: Kiera Chaplin (Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter), Frankie Grande, Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin,  Dylan Grieco, Mason Grammer, and Janine Tugonon. Each is a part of the  weaving of the story about acceptance and hope.

London’s show at Freemasons Hall continues the collections’ story. This chapter is living in the moment of fear and darkness. Taking the color away from you. The loss of color a strong presence on the runway. The opening fabric for this chapter looks similar to a second skin. The music for the runway is Sleepwalk by Santo & Johnny.

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

The collections’ stories are inspired by 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 are created  from recycled cans. Breton uses a company in Twain that cuts, colors, and treats the metal.

Breton says, “I do my bestwith my designs to protect the environment” 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.”

Malan Breton Style Fashion Week FW17 LA 4chion lifestyle

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.

Malan Breton Style Fashion Week FW17 LA

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 tradition I learned there with my development for the men’s suits.”

Malan Breton Style Fashion Week LA 4Chion Lifestyle

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.

Amber Nash joins us on the red carpet at the Emmy® Creative Arts Awards. Her character is Pam Poovey on FX Networks’ Archer. This show allows her to be apart of a smart dirty show.

Nash’s background is comedy, theatre, film, and voiceover. Improv is an important part of her acting world. She continues as time permits to give at Dad’s Garage in Atlantic City. She loves being able to read the audience and respond to the actors on the stage. Moving to a studio setting where she is alone was a change.

Nash said, “it has taken me some time to adjust to the setting after being in the theatre. I am now able to accurately predict how my co-actors will sound and act in each script. My improv training really helped with the adjustment.”

She discusses how much fun and lucky she is to play Pam. Her character is able to say some of the most, “dirty, terrible, horrible things. The writers create such smart content. I love how smart it is. I have to look up references with every script. I am able to learn about the world.”

The fans love Pam and Nash loves her fans. She discussed how important each one is to the show. She said, “some fans even have Pam tattoos.”

She looked fabulous in Adrianna Papell gown, a designer we both enjoy because of her feminine touch and attention to the woman form.

Archer took home 1 Emmy at The Creative Arts for Outstanding Animated Program.
