Older runway photos for project?
Hi tfsers,

Hi was wondering if there are any sites or photo agencies that have access to older runway photos - like past 1995?

I ask this because I am looking for some old Dolce & Gabbana runway shows for a paper I am writing. I checked out firstview, and they stopped at 1996. Any other sites or resources I should check out?

Thanks for any help!

I don't know about that designer, but you might have to go look at books at the library instead... For example I found many books on looks from old collections by the original Kenzo, Chanel, Balenciaga, Comme des Garcons, Yohji Yamamoto, Vivienne Westwood, etc. which is so much harder to find online

West Meets East
Hi all,

I am doing a research for my essay. I hope you guys out there could help me out with this.

As seen in some designers work, there are co-operations of west and east culture.

Will it become a bigger trend in the near future? Who else are using it?
Who is the first one who started mixing up western and eastern culture? What is his/her inspirations?
How has this trend been developing so far. What are the general feedback from other designers, media, and public?

And what do you think about this combinations?

Any suggestions on where else to find related informations?

Many Thanks,

Best Regard.

Martin Margiela
Stefano Pilati
Nicholas Ghesquire
Marni
Prada
Chloe under Phoebe Philo and later Yvan Mispleare
Marc Jacobs

I feel like all these designer more or less sway the rest of the women's fashion market each influencing their own niche and sometimes blurring (like Prada and Marni or Chloe and Marc). As much as I love designers like Alber at Lanvin or Rick Owens, they're influential but rarely do they set the pace. I feel with all the designers I listed you can clearly track directional collections, when they were introduced, and a major shift in design after their introduction.

i could be wrong but each company/industry names their color collections differently. besides the basics of course, blue, red, yellow etc... but since Pantone is the world unofficial standard it might be best to go with them

when i was working on placement with a designer generally they made up their own names for colours for example truffle, coffee etc. if you want an exact colour reference then pantone would be used since someones perception of a colour name could be different to another person.

for example i always got truffle and coffee mixed up since the truffle colour was darker than the coffee colour. the coffee was beige and the truffle a dark brown and because of the names in my head i thought these woulc be the other way around.

not of much help but i have only really used pantone as a universal reference.

yep I think colours are "designed" in each collection
so they become unique to that designer

but Pantone is good

also, common colour names can be found in artist's paints ..
so check any book that talks about acrylics, paints, pastels, pencil crayons, watercolours, illustration, etc.
you'll find a list containing like alizarin crimson, cerulean/cobalt/ultramarine blue, lemon yellow, ochre, burnt sienna and so on
