Obviously, by now you know that I am into street style from all over the world. To me fashion is a creation of art, and you can get really intricate with it, or not.  You don’t have to be into fashion, but guess what?  Just by wearing your everyday clothes you are in fact into fashion.

Avant-garde =  trademark of modernism

By: Samantha Dudhnath

avantgarde_fourfront1602

What is avant-garde?  What does it have to do with fashion?  Well, it has a lot to do with fashion, art, culture, and lifestyle.  Avant-garde pushes against the social norms and boundaries that we see on a ‘day to day’ basis.  It explores a different type of beauty then what we are not used to seeing.  Avant-garde is said to be the trademark of modernism.  It is also considered to be anything that is a rebellion ahead of the times.

5 Reasons Why Men Should Sew

Quintin Xavier Roper

I don’t know about you, but I refuse to believe that any activity, especially anything related to the arts, is gender specific.  The way I see it, sewing takes the same skill level as carpentry, woodwork, and even plumbing.  You have to know your tools and materials well to create and fix stuff.  Its 2011, and if you consider yourself the leader of your own destiny, at least consider these reasons why you should take up the sport of sewing.

This week is Christmas, and then before you know it it’s New Years eve.  And then before you know it it’s spring 2011!  Now you’re left wondering, “What the hell am I going to wear?”  According to thefashionmanifesto.com there are five trends that will be making the rounds: Edgy, Classic, the James Bond type, anti-fashion, and the super straight Alpha male.

1.      For Edgy, envision a Male Gaga.  Well to an extent anyway!  Leather (or pleather) pants, and vests.  Think modern day biker dude.  If you’re into edgy check out Christopher Bailey’s collection…….

Song of the Week:

Bing Crosby’s I’ll be Home for Christmas

'pic1-bingcrosby-songoftheweek-music'

To celebrate the holidays, my song pick of the week is “I’ll be home for Christmas”, sung by Bing Crosby on the “White Christmas” soundtrack. “White Christmas” (1954), is still one of the most popular Christmas movies of all time.  This classic film carries some of the most celebrated and well known holiday songs which we all hold dear to our hearts.

This album is a perennial favourite of mine. ‘Afro Blue’ is my pick of the week because lately I cannot get this song out of my head.

“In The Trenches”

' Trench Coat burberry - Facebook-social network- four loko- Chad Hurd-Inspirational- leadership-Inspiration-leader-Chuck close- art-painter- Picaso1 - '

There are many different opinions in regards to the origin of the trench coat. Some people would mark Burberry responsible for designing the timeless staple in most wardrobes.  Others believe Aquascutum created the first trench coat during World War I due to the high level of durability that Burberry’s version lacked. Either way; the trench coat has become a staple in almost 100 years of fashion.
