Happy Monday! Well, almost… how is the weekend over already?! school officially took every ounce of my weekend (and soul), which admittedly was expected… but still… :/
As a project for one of my courses I have been developing a “mood board” – a collection of inspirations to help design your garments/collection. Here are two I have been working on… followed by pieces that fit into this crazy puzzle. Naturally, it wouldn’t be a proper start to the week without a dose of random… and just a continuation of yesterdays musings… hope your day is filled with luck and coincidence :) that is what i am craving!

these are referred to as “flats” in the industry – they are a way for the designer to communicate with production about how the garment should look and be constructed. These flats are from the Zimmermann collection Bittersweet Nightshade :)

MAN OF THE HOUR: Lady Gaga is flexing her gender-bending muscles in the upcoming issue of Vogue Hommes Japan, which hits stands next month. The pop star graces the cover of the magazine as “Jo Calderone”- a Sicilian mechanic who favors grease-stained t-shirts and cigarettes tucked behind the ear. Images of the Nick Knight Calderone shoot made the Internet rounds months ago, prompting plenty of speculation that it was really Gaga in disguise with a 1950s-style pompadour. Stylist Nicola Formichetti reignited the buzz Wednesday when he posted a few of the black and white images as mockup covers on his blog along with a brief q and a with the pop star in character. “I’d love to own my own car shop, I have a bunch of my own ‘muscle’ cars,” quipped Calderone.
