NEUW is one of the design labels that will be at the show. They're a jean company developed by three friends Richard Bell, Stephen Little from Austrailia, and Par Lundqvist from Sweden. They developed their product in Nieuwlandstraat in Brussels, where Lundqvist spent a lot of time. Par had a great vintage denim collection from the last 100 years, containing iconic pieces from fashions history. The denim line's concept is using these pieces and altering them using different sewing techniques to develop a new look.
This Fashion Show will be EPIC for Philadelphia. If you are interested in supporting the arts, or just to support Philadelphia in it's efforts to become the next fashion city, you should buy your ticket A.S.A.P.

The Mens Oxford shoe has made a glorious comeback, but this time in women's fashion. It's a great shoe to pair with the menswear pant. The best styling advice I can give you for this look is to tuck and roll the legs a little bit, belt the pant and match it with a sweater of some sort. There should always be feminine touches added to the "menswear for women" look, maybe a headband with a bow or a feminine top.
I have decided that my next task will be a "menswear for women" pant, I have never made a pant before, so this should be fun.

Hey Guys! Here is my first Creation. It was inspired by my summers in Cape May, New Jersey. This particular dresses inspiration comes from a beach front Victorian in Cape May. It's my take on the full skirt that has been seen on the runways for fall. It's fun and flirty, beach inspired for this spring!
The First part, the full skirt.

Working the Back
It's coming together!

The Final Back!
Tell me what you guys think! Be brutally honest, this is my first garment that I created using my own pattern. Also, stay tuned for pictures of it styled on Ms. Kuhns!
