elschic, maybe it's as simple as "off the shoulder"?

^ A designer's showroom is for buyers and and PR basically. Strictly professional, no public admittance.

elschic, i would too only call that "off-the-shoulder". For the skirt, i'm not sure. The skirt on the picture i would define as pencil, but that's not because of the "points", but if you're interested in getting one, Vivienne Westwood has an adorable grey version for sale on www.net-a-porter.com/intl

What is this fabric called?


style.com, Fendi & Ralph Lauren, f/w 05

i know the ralph lauren one is kinda usual leather, but usually, those jackets are in another type of leather, sortof like the Fendi. It's not plain leather, and it's not suede. Could anyone help me?

elschic111 I was always under the impression those skirts were known as "hankerchief skirts". I could be wrong, but I'm just going with what I've always heard & called them.

Help...
I want to find a similar jacket to this or find a pattern similar to make one & I was just wondering what that kind of neckline would be called... where it snaps across like that? And maybe the name of the style of jacket?

Heres the picture...

it does sound a bit offtopic but i think i happen to know what you are asking!
is the documentary you watched Signe Chanel? It's available on youtube and the chapter where they talk about superstition is Called Rituals (they talk about niddles, scissors dropping, dresses falling, and what all that measn)

don't know if anyone's mentioned it before...
but some dictionaries with fashion terms are really helpful...if you are working professionally in the field:p

"The Fairchild Dictionary of Fashion", third edition, is extremely good
"Dictionary of Fashion and Fashion Designers", by Thames and Hudson, is good enough if you want a general reference

Hope it's been helpful!
