We've all been there – going to store after store, trying on a pair of jeans, a blazer, a skirt, only to leave the store in tears because nothing fits. No matter how many sizes bigger or smaller you go, something's still wrong. The pants legs are too long. The sleeves are too short. The buttons won't button. If only designers could figure that out and make clothes that fit...
Beauty is not static. That is the sentiment held by women’s fashion designer, Daniel Del Core, whose clothing is known for its mutant combination of fashion and nature. He creates his designs out of inspiration from the moss, molds, fungi, mushrooms, and all of earth’s forever-growing entities that we find around us and right under our feet when we step outside.
Del Core is a 33-year-old fashion designer. He was born in Germany and is currently based in Milan, Italy. At 16-years-old, he left Germany to study ceramics, sculpture, and art in Italy, but later decided to study visual arts, fashion, and design at the design school, Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan. There, he worked as an intern for some of the world’s most famous fashion brands like Dolce and Gabbana and Versace. His studies eventually led him to become the VIP designer of Gucci under the company’s creative designer, Alessandro Michele. Del Core has had the opportunity to dress celebrities like Lana Del Rey and Bjork while at Gucci.
Too often have fashion designers styled their collections and individual pieces with a specific body type in mind. Tall, skinny, with the proportions of a Barbie doll has long been the prototype for world-renowned designers in the fashion industry. However, American designer Christian Sirianoimplements a body of work that completely ignores long-standing traditions of what is considered “beautiful.”
For this reason, the SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah, Georgia has decided to showcase some of his most notable gowns from over the past decade.
Young fashion designer, Supriya Lele is a rising star to watch as she connects three worlds of fashion into elegant, flirty, must-have looks. In her designs, we see reflections of edgy 90s grunge, traditional Indian techniques with a crisp modern finish draped and perfected across her eponymous brand Supriya Lele. The emerging icon grew up in the UK to a family of doctors as a second-generation immigrant originating from India. Supriya began her college journey with uncertainty and a fear of disappointing her practical, successful parents, with skepticism to pursue her creative passions.
Everybody has their favorite pair of jeans. Whether you’re a person who prefers a pair of high-end designer jeans, or you may be like me and you are content with a plain comfortable pair, we all have our favorite. But what makes your favorite pair different from the rest? I found my favorite pair accidentally while shopping for an outfit to wear to a party that I ended up not even going to. I’m a bargain shopper, so I’m always sliding down the clearance aisle to see if I can find a steal. Low and behold I found a pair of Ralph Lauren jeans at a price I couldn’t resist, and the price was so low I can’t even tell you how much they were. Shoutout to Macy’s though!
What makes them my favorite pair isn’t just the brand, but they’re super comfortable and fit perfectly. They are a lighter blue, so they pretty much go with everything. I’m also a sucker for versatility.
Chloe Lonsdale, the founder of M.i.H jeans, offers a ton of versatility with her women’s jeans. Chloe was pretty much raised in the clothing industry, denim in particular.
