New York Fashion Week- Foreign Designer

Kai Kuhne Ready-to-wear Spring 2008
Shown September 10, 2008

With so many talented designers originally from other countries showing this year, it was difficult choosing one. Kai Kune showed an amazing collection of 38 looks. He was born in Germany in 1972. After high school, he studied fashion design and business at The Academy of Fashion and Design in Hamburg Germany. Several years later he moved to New York and attended The School of Visual Arts, where he studied fashion photography and art history. What sets Kai apart from other designers is his focus on avant-garde flair mixed with classical designs that creates a very modern and sophisticated look. His line will undoubtedly sell, with its mix of stunning classic lines and modern silhouettes. Small boutiques that cater to the quirky and fashion forward woman will have no problem adding anything from this collection to their inventory for upcoming seasons.

European contributions

There are countless truly great influences from Europe...the chic and sophisticated look of Paris, the effortless elegance of Milan, and the quirky style of London. Europe has always maintained a more tailored approach when it comes to fashion.
One of fashions most iconic pieces without a
question is the Trench Coat.

Thomas Burberry designed a raincoat for British and French soldiers in WWI. The original design was modified many times to include shoulder straps and a shorter length for better mobility. Because the jacket was worn primarily by soldiers fighting in the trenches, it was eventually dubbed " the trench coat." The coat made its way into uniforms of enlisted soldiers in the United Kingdom in WWII. Following the war, the style became wildly popular partly due to the level of respect it demanded from being affiliated with army officials. Trench coats also became fashionable due in part to the appearance of them in a number of classic Hollywood films such as: Peter Sellers in Pink Panther, Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, and of course a fashion icon herself Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Todays trench coats range from the classic khaki, to funky patterns,available in all sorts of colors and lengths, and in plush fabrics. The coast is now considered a wardrobe staple in every fashionista's closet.

Upon seeing the Fall 2008 Ready to Wear Collection one can no doubly see some key influences from the past reemerging into the current looks being shown.

The incomparable Galliano seems to have taken great inspiration from a controversial time in history: the 1960's. The conservative, ladylike and downright proper styles
were reminiscent of Jackie Kennedy. The boxy jackets and the oversize sunglasses were some of her trademarkrk styles that made her a fashion icon.

The 1960's were a time of dynamic social changes, and the fashions from that time are now considered classics. This included pleated and pencil skirts worn often with cardigan sweaters, A line dresses, bouffant hair, matching shell shirts and a slim belt nipped in the waist.

Mad for Plaid

From the Kilt of the Scottish to the staple of the 1990's grunge movement, Plaid is back with vengeance!
Kurt Cobain was the poster boy for plaid but would prob hate being typecast as such.

Plaid took center stage in the Dolce & Gabanna 2008 Fall collection:
