The beading ... or the trim on the dress underneath? the trim on the dress looks like something done with ribbons and knots ... but no idea what it's called. Maybe someone else knows....

Since it's only a single question about trim ... you might also see help in this thread: All about Textiles / Fabrics: Specifications, Fabric Treatments, Dyeing, Etc.


BTW ... I added a link to the HQ image so others could see it close up ... hope you don't mind.

And ... you probably don't know because you haven't posted a lot yet, so please go here for this Announcement about Hosting sites (imagbam is not allowed): http://forums.thefashionspot.com/f43...wed-95215.html

The more visual the better.

If you could find a way to do something like a PowerPoint presentation, using a collage with photos, music and video, graphics, etc. ... and then project it onto a screen, so the everyone can see it ... that would be awsome!

But if not ... at least a few "mood boards" with enlarged photos. I am thinking having one board for a single feature illustrated on each board. Photos illustrating each of these sort of things: ... colors, leathers, hardware, shapes, handles ... things like that.

Or break it into

^ You can try www.myfdb.com for ads, there's database of many US magazines and you can find what ads are featured in what issue, at least there was before they've redesigned site.

I can't say I've seen any of them in the following US magazines: Vogue, Elle, Bazaar. If they were there ... then I just didn't notice them because I am not familiar with those names.

We're starting our own magazines in my journalism class. We created surveys to see if there is any interest in our topics. I am thinking of starting a fashion magazine, but want to know what you guys want to see and read. I would appreciate it if you guys could help me out. The survey only has 10 questions, it'll take about 5 minutes to finish it. I would really appreciate your input.

What is the meaning of rebellious fashion, are there any rebellious fashion now?
Hey guys,
I am actually doing a project of the rebellious of fashion, which I am quite confusing about the meaning of it....

Wt I hv come up in my mind right now is something about...
punk (Vivienne Westwood in early ages , the Sex pistol), street fashion, hippies(those Jeans the hair style of man and the movement of anti war), the growth of feminism --> no corset n bras... , deconstructionism, and nowadays,,, Hussein Chalayan, Comme des Garcons, ,,,

Besides that, It there any REAL rebellious fashion in our world right now?

Imo, any innovation in fashion was rebellious because it stepped ahead of its age.... whether it was shortening of the women skirts, suits for women, cross-dressing, revealing outfits, new styles like hippie or punk....
if u wanna write about rebelious fashion nowadays... which might be quite hard imo since 2000s is only recycling 20th century so far... focus on the innovations in fashion last years... the ones that were talked about but didnt become part of everyday life and the ones that did.... sum could even consider simple crocs or uggs to be superugly and therefore simply rebellious... u dont have to exactly look like a clown to be rebellious if u know what i mean id like to help you but looks like ur not pretty sure what u wanna do, so let me know when u get to something more specific...
And i think what u should focus on is prolly cross-dressing.... the androgynous menswear.. within last 5 years the male fashion transformed SO much.... from hunk models in sexy outfits to skinny teenage boys in womenswear... im just tired of going through male magazines and thinking that my mum would look good in that clothes....

I have a theme for a project, it's about memories being easily deleted from computers, and therefore the power of computers over human minds.
Does anyone know any artists/designers/any kind of creative person/movement, or just inspirational but relevant pictures which could provide me with some imagery that resembles this idea?

I have to design a collection you see and I'm finding it easy to come up with the concept but hard to mould the concept into the shape of clothing.

What first comes to mind is that old movie ... and it's recent remake ... Tron. If I remember correctly (I never actually saw either film), the protaganist was stuck inside a computer or at least the softwear ... the environment was dark and the costumes were lit like neon, as well as the motorcycles they drove to get around. So ... there must be tons of movie stills from films like that ... science fiction.

Then ... I think about lots of sci fi movies from the 60's that had a definite fashion bent ... Rudi Gernreich is one designer who did work on films like this ... and his runway shows had the same futuristic vibe. Hats that looked like helmuts with visors ... as one example.
