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.

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.

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.

James Pierce Connelly Emmys® Creative Arts Red Carpet

James Pierce Connelly joins us on the red carpet at the Emmy®Creative Arts Awards. He works production design on The Voice seen on NBC. Each year brings on new aesthetics for the set design on The Voice.

Working together with the directors, crew while keeping the audience and contestants in mind they develop a set that provides the sensory experience.

The anxiousness, nerves, and competition felt in the set design. His focus with the set design is taking the story and style of the environment to experience. This draws the audience, crew, and more into the full feeling.

Connelly’s background provides him with the visual aesthetics on stage to convey the feelings, beauty, and functionality. His parents were architect and art teacher. He participated in theater in High School and graduated from college with a fine art degree.

He faces new challenges with every new season on the set. He sees behavior is the result of environment plus personality. He sees the artists’ personality journeying through the hallways and The Voice brand as the environment. There are real stories with each artist. The set creates the feelings and storytelling. This is how he focuses the set design each season.

The new set takes a team effort, without changing the spinning chairs. He is grateful for the team he is working with on the show. He has served on the Peer Group at the Television Academy since 2008 and is on the Academy Governor’s Board. His talent and insight to aesthetics bring this Emmy winner to the Creative Arts Awards again.

The Voice took home 2 Emmys at The Emmys® for Outstanding Lighting Design Lighting Direction For a Variety Series and Outstanding Reality Competition Program.

The team enjoys working together on the series-together. The ability to work with such a creative topic that draws in from pop culture makes this fun instead of work. The work continues to grow and improve each season. Thanks to the talent on the show and the many actors and actresses that take part.

This is the longest running series for Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. The team works hard to keep the stories creative and not become pigeon-holed. They said each day is successful with the crew because they fed off each other’s positive energy and uniqueness.

Acting A Time to Create ~ Lance Lim

Acting A Time to Create ~ Lance Lim

Lance Lim School of Rock Nickelodon Emmys® 4Chion Lifestyle
Lance Lim School of Rock Nickelodeon Emmys®
Emmys® Creative Arts 2016 Red Carpet Lance Lim

Lance Lim joins us on the red carpet at the Emmys®Creative Arts Awards. He plays Zack on School Of Rock at Nickelodeon.

Lim has been acting since the age of nine. His performances include Independence Day: Reassurance, Fresh Off The Boat, and Growing up Fisher.

His current character, Zack, who is reserved and plays the guitar. This provides him the opportunity to create a character that is opposite of his outgoing nature.

“The ability to play characters that are different from his personality and life is the best part of acting,” he says. Working to capture each character he plays is a lot of fun. The crew and actors he works with providing him with great insight into performing his best.

He finds the ability characters have to make an impact on other’s lives a value he cherishes. Hearing from those watching the show that let them know they have been able to overcome a fear means a lot.

His advice to those looking to get into acting is, “do this because you have passion and love for the art. Looking for fame and fortune will not make the hard work, long hours, and dedication fun.” He does this because he loves this. He loves capturing the emotions and characters. His mother taught him to remember at the end of the day you must be happy.

His best advice to making each successful is to smile. At the end of the day, his favorite thing is to go home and hang out with his friends. See him perform Meghan Trainor Like I’m Gonna Lose You Acoustic Cover by Megan Lee ft. Lance Lim here. He has some future projects in the works.

School Of Rock nominated for Outstanding Children’s Program. Voted best dressed at the Emmys® Creative Arts Day 1 by our office.

Telling a Life Story, “What Happened Miss Simone”

Telling a Life Story, “What Happened Miss Simone”

Jayson Jackson What Happened Miss SImone
Emmy’s Creative Arts 2016 Red Carpet Jayson Jackson

Jayson Jackson joins us on the red carpet at the Emmy® Creative Arts Awards. What Happened, Miss Simone? Is a documentary after the personal life of Nina Simone.

Jayson Jackson produced and created, What Happened, Miss Simone, a film that discusses the woman behind the performer. Jayson says, “The story needed to be told and the timing was now” (Dolly).

Jackson states, “The lives of many performers is just their performance. Many forget that they have personal lives, struggles, and moments. This was the time to show that Miss Simone was a strong courageous woman, that lived a personal story.”

Jackson goes on to explain that telling the story required capturing the classical artist that suffered from mental illness and domestic violence. Hercivil rights voice is strong in regards to the movement. Her life impacted millions with her talent and music, but her story will bring honest living. The story reminds us that we are all human beings living and working within our own skin.

The film based on Nina’s diaries, notes she wrote on napkins, newspapers, and hotel pads. This brought the film to the life of Nina Simone. Jackson states, “The best that we can walk away from this film is honesty. That person will have a respect for the artists that honestly wear their emotions on their sleeves.”

Producing this film took on the idea of searching for footage and stories from Simone’s Life. He states, “We did not write a script. We wanted Nina Simone’s life to show us the story.” The film became just that her story. This story is about a strong woman who performes with a talent that allowed her to sing in any genre and understand the music better than some composers.

What Happened, Miss Simone took home 1 Emmy at The Creative Arts for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special.

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.”

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.
