I was going through my pinterest feed, aand I thought about collecting some of the shoes I liked… even though I’m running around all day, and I’m all about comfort, but girls need a bit of glamour sometime..:)
A pinterestes képeken mentem keresztül amikor jött az ötlet, hogy egy cipős összeállítást csinálok… bármennyire legtöbb nap rohangálok, és ilyenkor a komfort van előtérben…de időnként kellenek az ilyen mesés cipők…:)2a88eb58a2054cab98905cbcb1650b54 4f6c505edd3674815927df50bf58a52d 6c0f8ac82b13075e74b8fd3164605ba2 7ffdd9eef9e2422c7b9429209afa7b8b 8d195a139c3912fa48ef62258b59b2af a934453004011fc1a73af099512e618b c64ff398d2b3f944e4dc4cc3fbf07ec3 e0998a95e736f05424f471377d6b8b7b

So my last weekend was filled with photography, I went to see the fashion students, since it was the TV studio class. One of my favorite… so I was there documenting the day, and had a chance to take some portraits too 🙂
Az elmúlt hétvégén meglátogattam a stílusos lányokat… TV stúdiós órájuk volt. Ez mindig eseményekben teli, az egyik kedvencem. Tavaly is, és idén is nagyon jó volt… érdekes a lányok fejlődését is látni. A napot dokumentáltam, volt smink, interjú, portrézás…:)IMG_1272IMG_1293IMG_1243And this is when a photographer also gets some makeup 🙂
És ilyen mikor a fotóst is beültetik a sminkszékbe…:)fotóA few treasures from the past few weeks, I’m hoping to do some development makeup wise…:)
Egy-két új apróság… egy kis fejlesztést végzek sminkes dolgok terén…:)1660760_10151972819953775_257330792_n

So I made this mason jar project quite a while ago. Very simple to do, and gives such a pretty look. I followed this youtube tutorial:
Befőttes üvegeket festettem, ez alapján készültek:

A little side note from my experience… so when you are ready with the jars try to pour back as many leftover paints as you can. I didn’t do this right, so a big amount of paint  left at the very bottom of the jars and it took more than a week to dry out… (I know… :D)
Egy kis összefoglaló, hogy mit is tapasztaltam… amikor kész vagy az üvegek befestésével, akkor próbáld meg, hogy minél kevesebb festék maradjon az üvegedben. Nekem ez nem épp sikerült, úgyhogy egy elég vastag réteg maradt az aljában, és így több mint egy hét volt a száradási idő! Ha ezt szeretnéd elkerülni, akkor erre jó figyelni! 🙂

Glamorous 90’s – GUCCI in the hands of TOM FORD 


HISTORY:

  • 1990 – Gucci’s creative director Dawn Mello hires Tom Ford.
  • 1992 – With the leaving of design director Richard Lambertson, Tom Ford took over his position, heading the brand’s ready-to-wear collection, fragrances, image, advertising and store design.
  • 1993 – Ford was in charge designing eleven product lines.
  • 1994 – Ford was promoted to the position of creative director.
  • 1995-99 – In 1999 Gucci sales increased by 90% .
  • 1996 – Tom Ford won the CFDA Award for International Designer of the Year.
  • 1999 – Gucci house was valued about $4.3 billion.

Tom-FordTom Ford absolutely put his stamp on the 90’s and turned into a sexy, stylish and glamorous era.
Not just in fashion, but in architecture, in design and in music retro influences were seen. Just as the 70’s rejected the trends of the 60’s but embraced fashion of the 50’s. The exact same thing happened in the 90’s; everyone wanted to move away from the 80’s trends and re-form a new vision.

Gucci was a struggling house by the end of the 1980, nobody wanted to buy Gucci any more. Tom Ford was in the right place and time to move away from America and to start a career at Gucci’s headquarter in Europe. As he says, ‘‘I had this moment to basically to do whatever I wanted and do what I thought is right.’’

In the early 90’s he was mainly working behind the scenes, but by 1994 he was promoted as the creative director of the house. His first debut was in 1994, then his success continued… he was credited with putting the glamour back to fashion with introducing Halston-style velvet hipsters, skinny satin shirts and car-finish metallic patent boots. Ford remade Gucci as an edgy, stylish, sexy, and exclusive fashion label with slick, skin-flaunting designs.

The 1996 Fall/Winter RTW collection contained iconic pieces from Tom Ford. This collection set the house’s modern fashion forward look.

The mood of the show was described classical elegance with a sexy twist. Creating masculine look with the swept-back hairs and mixing it up with extremely shapely clothes. Music and lightning are all in contrast just as the pattern of the show, starting with blacks and navies and finishing with the famous white jersey dresses. Tom Ford defines this collection as “luxe with an edge,’’ it has all the elements of a “new classicism’’.

Looks are monochromatic from head to toe, and everything matches from shoes to belts…. Shirts are open to the waist, shoulders are detailed, long skirts are split up in the front, and emphasised hips appear with strategic cutouts and signature belts. Red and navy velvet tuxedos are bringing back glamour of the Studio 54 era. The whole collection is very neutral without any patterns, Tom Ford says, “Less colour, much less colour. In fact, we’re showing navy, white, black, camel.”
The famous white silk jersey dresses not only defined The Designer, but also defined fashion of the 90’s. With bringing back the redesigned white dresses at 2004, well, that was the final show of the Ford-Gucci era.
