Inspiration By McQueen

Like you all know I am a huge fan of Alexander McQueen. So when I saw this video I got goosebumps. McQueen always inspires me and give me a good feeling. When I am out of inspiration I look in his previous collections and the inspiration comes back slowly. It is very inspiring to see these behind the scenes images.

Sarah Burton said about this collection: "I was thinking about a woman as an object of desire. We go to such lengths to adorn ourselves that we almost become our clothes or are taken over by them. This is a collection about excess - an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme."

Enjoy the video!

Backstage At Chanel Paris

Pre-Fall collections always leave much to be desired. Chanel always comes to work and presented a 78-piece pre-fall collection. The Bombay-inspired spectacle was dripping with shine, and we still can’t get enough. Thankfully, some backstage videos have surfaced, and the makeup/hair/adornment process are really beautiful.

Queen Of Noise

Raquel Zimmermann channels her inner rock and roll goddess for the music issue of Vogue Paris. In front of the lens of David Sims, Raquel is an androgynous vixen. She wears shimmering ensembles from labels such as Giorgio Armani, Haider Ackermann, Kenzo and Givenchy. I really like the effect in the photos. It gives them more draft!

Weekly Journal

Finally I am free from school. Last week I had my presentations and I submitted all my reports. Besides this it was also my last week of school at my communication study. In February I will start my graduation. But for now it is time to relax, unfortunately for only a few days. Because I have an exam on January 9. Below you see some photos about this hectic week. Enjoy your last week of 2011!

Starting this week with my iPad and a cup of tea in the canteen of school. Preparing my presentation and checking my Facebook.

One of my best friends found this on the internet and send it to me. It really looks amazing and delicious!! Hope that we can (try to ;)) make it soon.

My Christmas nails :D

Christmas present from my nanny family.

After some hectic weeks my classmates and I decided to enjoy a lunch together.

I have to admit that I am addicted to Wordfeud. A friend of mine knows this, so I got this Christmas card from him. In English the text means Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Starbucks makes my day.

Wearing my new scarf from Brrr... more about this brand soon!!

Besides the grey scarf I also got a dark blue scarf from them.

My mother made this photo for me. I really love the shoes and they are moving on the circular mirrors. Very cool or not?

Till next week!
Love, Manon

The Day Before...

Besides books and magazines also documentaries can inspire me. I bought a DVD box with four dvd's about world famous fashion houses: Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi, Jean Paul Gaultier Couture, Sonia Rykiel and Proenza Schouler from Jack Mc Collough and Lazaro Hernandez. They were all filmed on the critical point in their creative lives, the day before the fashion show. Stress, craftsmanship and new ideas are the keywords in the world of luxury fashion.

Loïc Prigents, also known for the documentarie Signé Chanel, has the exception for an exclusive access to the studios, the PR and marketing companies and did not miss a second of what is happening behind the scenes of the famous fashion houses. It is a challenge to the clock, the whole day and often also the night before the big show!

Fashion Angels

Felix Lammers captures ethereal creatures Emma Karlsson, Akoul and Svetlana for the latest issue of Germany’s Quality Magazine. With beauty creations by makeup artist Yasmin Heinz, the trio sports lightweight ensembles selected by stylist Nadja Rath in the stunning portraits. I think these photos are very pretty, it looks like the models shine like lights.

My Fashion Books

Besides my obsession for bags, shoes and clothes I can fall in love with fashion books. Currently I have a pretty cool collection and it keeps growing. There are a few books that I love. The first one is a book called The House of Viktor & Rolf. For me the book is extra special because two years ago I met Viktor and Rolf at the Bijenkorf in Amsterdam. They were their to sign their fairy tales book. Besides that book they also signed this book.

Another book that I really love is from Alexander McQueen. As you may know I am in love with all the designs that Alexander McQueen has made, I am a big admirer of him. When he commit suicide I was very shocked. During one of my citytrips to Antwerp I found his book called Genius of a generation. It is one of my best books.

A few other books that I really love are Fashion Now 2 and de macht van mode. In English the book is called The power of fashion. These books are very inspiring for me.

If you want to see a review of one of these books please let me know!
