Wrapped In Love ~ Malan Breton

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.

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.

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.”

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

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.
