Newport International Runway Group Tokyo Fashion Week Unveils Schedule

SMALL IN JAPAN: While all eyes are still on Europe, Japan’s capital is gearing up for its own fashion week, scheduled to take place during the third week of October.

At a press conference on Thursday, organizers released the official show schedule, as well as details on some related events. This season, there will be few newcomers participating in the shows, and even fewer international brands.

The week is to open with Hanae Mori, a Japanese brand steeped in history that will be re-launching with a new designer. As reported, Henry Holland will also be in town to show his spring House of Holland collection.

A handful of brands that are normally on the top of editors’ lists to see are downsizing from a runway show to an installation this season. These include Somarta, Yasutoshi Ezumi and Motonari Ono.

Versus Tokyo, a related event that is open to the public and consists of both fashion shows and music events lasting through the night, will also be returning this season. Brands that will show during Versus include Mr. Gentleman, Facetasm and Toga Virilis, the men’s line of Toga.


Buyers whose trips to Japan Fashion Week will be sponsored by the Japan External Trade Organization, or JETRO, include representatives from Galeries Lafayette, Surrender and Front Row in Singapore, Heavy Selection in Thailand, and Brooklyn-based Bird. For the second season in a row, Nick Wooster will also be in town for the week’s festivities.

Fashion Festival off to Exciting Start by Newport International Runway Group Tokyo Fashion

For Ae'lkemi designer Alvin Fernandez, it was "an honour" to open the 2014 Telstra Perth Fashion Festival last night along with two of Asia's most respected couturiers, Michael Cinco and Sebastian Gunawan.



Ae'lkemi showed 25 exquisite outfits as part of a new couture collection created especially for the opening night, International Runway - Beyond Imagination.

"The collection is partly inspired by Venetian Gothic architecture," Fernandez explained after the show, the first to be held at the festival's new Fashion Paramount venue at the Perth Concert Hall.

"I liked the idea of the contrast between structure and fluidity and also having a lot of different textures in an all-white dress, for example."



Many dresses featured intricate hand-finished French beading and experiments with laser-cut leather, a first for the Ae'lkemi brand.

"We still wanted to stay pretty true to our signature, which is elegant, nipped in at the waist, skimming the hips," Fernandez said.

"There's a lot of detail in there, but we also wanted some palate-cleansers, some simpler pieces before you go into the more in-your-face red carpet pieces of the finale."



Fernandez said the presence of delegates from the Asian Couture Federation and Singapore's FIDe Fashion Weeks was a valuable opportunity to showcase his work to a wider international audience.

"This is a valuable market that we really want to tap into," he said.

"For us to show the rest of the world what we can do is always a plus, and being given opening honours was huge for us."

Watching all the glamour from the front row were celebrities Dannii Minogue - flying the flag for WA design in an Aurelio Costarella outfit - Kate Waterhouse, Matthew and Lauren Pavlich, Coterie group member Emma Milner and international fashion blogger Diane Pernet.

Premier Colin Barnett, Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi and Asian Couture Federation chairman Frank Cintamani were among the dignitaries welcoming guests to the week-long festival.

Michael Cinco, who is based in Dubai but was born in the Philippines, has dressed the likes of Sofia Vergara, Beyonce and Rihanna, while Indonesian designer Sebastian Gunawan has built up a loyal fashion following throughout south-east Asia.

Both designers featured detailed beading, embroidery, sequins and lace-work.

Tonight Flannel designer Kristy Lawrence will premiere her summer collection in Perth for the first time, while Morrison and One Fell Swoop will share the runway with cult New Zealand labels Zambesi and Nom*D at the 3300 Miles Apart show.

Newport International Runway Group Tokyo Fashion on Menswear around the World

(FACEBOOK and PINTEREST) - IT'S RARE THAT Giuseppe Santamaria will stop a well-dressed man on the street to take his picture. Instead, the photographer and art director—a Sydney, Australia-based Canadian expat—tends to capture subjects as they stroll on by, often when they're freshly dressed and en route to work. Mr. Santamaria, 28, who cites photographers like '60s-era Magnum lensman Ernst Haas as inspiration, said, "It's about freezing that moment, seizing what that guy's life is like." As a result, authentic energy infuses the images he shoots for his four-year-old street-style blog, Men in This Town, which he has turned into a book of the same name, available Sept. 2.

Mr. Santamaria traces his menswear fascination to his Toronto childhood and a dapper Italian father partial to polos, short shorts and wicker shoes. "I thought his was an older way of dressing," he said. "But now I wear the same shoes and shirts. It's this influence I never realized I had."

Today, Mr. Santamaria's appreciation for menswear is global. His new book documents five cities he's deemed menswear capitals—New York, Sydney, Tokyo, Milan and London. His hometown didn't make the cut. He explained, diplomatically: "Toronto is one of those cities trying to find itself." Here, five images from "Men in This Town" and Mr. Santamaria's take on the unique sartorial charms of each locale.


ARTFUL TAILORING IN MILAN

"Milanese men are born with taste, and not much changes," Mr. Santamaria said. Still, he sees a difference between the generations. Younger men wear sportier clothes, he explained, while more-tailored looks seem to be reserved for older men. "There's almost a rite of passage," he added. "You have to earn the right to pull off that suit." Having clocked a little time on planet Earth can make a man more photogenic, added Mr. Santamaria: "[I like] that you can see the experience and tradition in their faces." Many of Mr. Santamaria's Milanese photos focus on these older gentlemen like fashion showroom owner Alessandro Squarzi. Mr. Squarzi's élan comes via spezzato—artfully mismatched jackets and trousers. Try it with a plaid blazer, vest and khaki pants.

TOYKO'S SENSE OF PRECISION

The Japanese city is hands-down Mr. Santamaria's favorite to shoot. "[Tokyo residents] pay so much attention to what they wear," he said. "They execute a look to the very last detail." And that's true whether a guy is working an old-school dandy flourish or parsing the finer points of high-quality raw denim. Regarding the latter, few people do cool Americana better than the Japanese, who worship selvage denim, chambray shirts and limited-edition sneakers. "It's the most amazing place I've been to," he said. "You feel like you're engulfed in this other universe."


MARRYING PAST AND FUTURE IN LONDON

Mr. Santamaria pronounced men in London as high-fashion-obsessed: "When you see something on the runway, you see it on the streets a few weeks later." But it's not all about the fashion-forward. London style mixes the new with the old. It's a look perfectly captured by Dan Rookwood, the U.S. editor for e-commerce site Mr Porter, whom Mr. Santamaria interviewed for his book. "He has this heritage look about him but is always on top of whatever is new," said the photographer. "It's not about wearing vintage, it's about wearing modern clothing but sort of following the traditions of his dad's wardrobe." Note the slimmed-down, contemporary cut of Mr. Rookwood's camel coat and his soft-frame briefcase. For a similar effect, try AMI's camel coat, a classic Dunhill pinstripe suit and the dandy-like flourish of a floral silk tie.

NEW YORK'S LAND OF OPPORTUNITY

"New York is the most fun when it comes to fashion," said Mr. Santamaria. "You have everything, from big-box to luxury stores. This is where fashion is most accessible, and there's so much opportunity to do things with your clothes." And not just clothes. About the picture here, he commented in his book, "Nowhere but New York does a mode of transportation become a fashion statement." To underline the city's sense of fashion freedom, "Men in This Town" features an interview with womenswear designers Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra, well known for their twinned uniforms of plaid shirts, suspenders and lumberjack beards. "They've been doing it since the '90s," Mr. Santamaria said. "They anticipated the hipster movement. They're pioneers." Key elements of Gotham style: a subtly refined version of that sportswear classic, a fisherman's knit, and a basic backpack recast in striped wool and leather. The final touch is footwear that earned its street cred decades ago, Converse's Chuck Taylors.


SYDNEY'S LIGHTER TAKE ON TRADITION

Perhaps because he lives there, Mr. Santamaria is a vocal proponent of Sydney's burgeoning menswear scene. "Especially in the last five years or so, it's started to boom," he said. Men dress appropriately for the mostly warm climate, but that doesn't mean flip-flops and shorts. "You're starting to see looks done in a Neapolitan way, but it's lighter and more free," Mr. Santamaria said. "It's a mix between sartorial and beachy." Certainly a sharp-shouldered jacket worn with a T-shirt and dashingly looped bohemian scarf strikes the right balance. As does an unlined Boglioli jacket and smartly casual, moccasin-like boots.

The Newport International Runway Group Latest Articles: 3 mode beklædning bestande gør før jul


Den ene store håb for detailhandlere er at have den største Christmas shopping sæsonen som muligt, og har skarer af købere gennem butikkerne. Fashion apparel detailhandlere har haft at bestille alt godt frem, så hvis deres mål er slukket, og ikke som mange kunder vise sig som forventet, de bliver nødt til at rabat for at rydde lager.

Skære omkostninger og forbedre bundlinjen er en stor prioritet for Pacific mærker (ASX: PBG), efter at komme tilbage i 2013 med en $73,8 mio nettoresultat efter skat og abnormals, efter tunge nedskrivninger i 2012.

Virksomheden kendt for King Gee og hårdt Yakka arbejdstøj og obligationer undertøj annonceret i November, det vil være at flytte sit arbejdstøj division callcenter i Melbourne udlandet til Manila som en opgradering til kunde service forbedringer.

I oktober sagde Pacific mærker, at første halvdel EBIT og NPAT kan være væsentligt ned i forhold til den tilsvarende forudgående periode. Dette er på grund af handel forhold, investeringer, en afmatning i arbejdstøj marked og manglende fornyelse af visse licenser i sin hjemmeartikler, fodtøj og overtøj division.

Speciale Fashion Group (ASX: SFH) har lavet en nylige overtagelse af floder lejlighedskøb tøj kæde for 5 millioner dollars efter sigende under den bogførte værdi. Kæden har 160 butikker, og speciale mode planlægger at investere omkring 4 millioner dollars til dem over de næste to år til at puste nyt liv i forretningen.

Speciale Fashion Group er kendt mere for sin Damemode af sådanne mærker som møllere, korsvej og Katies. Denne overtagelse vil supplere forretning med mænds og børns tøj og styrke sin position i den modne, værdi tøj segment.

Premier investeringer (ASX: PMV), operatøren af Just gruppe datterselskabet, som har sådanne mærker som bare Jeans, Jay Jays og Portmans, sagde i sin ordinære generalforsamling møde at det var at få klar til indtastning af sin Smiggle brevpapir butikker i Det Forenede Kongerige.

Det mener, at potentielt der er mulighed for at åbne så mange som 200 butikker i de næste fem år, og forventer, at overskuddet kunne overgå dem i sin australske butikker. Det planer om at have omkring 8 butikker åbnet inden for dette regnskabsår.

Tåbelige Takeaway

Resultatet af dette års jul vil give en indikation af, hvor godt økonomien er bouncing tilbage efter et års usikkerhed. Med lave renter og den almindelige forbruger følelse op har feriesæsonens indtægter bedre fremtidsudsigter nu.

Telstras udsigter for 2014 og fremover

Med sin legendariske, fuldt franked 28 cent udbytte er Telstra darling af Aussie investorer. Men med sin lod pris skyrocketing i det forløbne år, er Telstra forbi sin prime? Klik her for vores splinternye rapport: "Er det tid til at sælge Telstra?”

The Newport Iinternational Runway Group Latest Articles: Luksus mode lagre tilbyder potentielle High-End afkast


I midten af oktober, runway darling Marc Jacobs meddelte han ville forlade sin stilling som kunstnerisk leder for Louis Vuitton (NASDAQ: LVMHF) at fokusere på sit eget firma 's IPO. Bare tanken om sådan en ting skabt buzz til en Børsintroduktion, der er på den konservative side, sker tre år fra nu. Det forårsagede Louis Vuitton aktiekursen stiger af to dollars og om en million aktier til at blive handlet på dagen for offentliggørelsen. Det var også afsæt for en diskussion af mode lagre som store investeringer i "køb og hold" gå ind i det nye år.

Michael Kors og fremkomsten af fashionable investeringer

For eksempel, tage et kig på Michael Kors' (NYSE: KORS) IPO tidligere i år. Det ramte markedet på 20 dollar pr. aktie og har firedoblet i værdi siden. Der var nogle tidlige sammenligninger til Ralph Lauren mærke og bekymringer, at det ikke ville nå markedsværdi af den formidable mærke.

Nu, Michael Kors' virksomhed føjes til den S & P 500 som dens markedsværdi har nået 15 milliarder dollars. I disse begreber, er det på vej mod overskygger Ralph Lauren, som har en 15.54 milliarder dollars marked cap. Nogle af dette blev ansporet af den oprindelige brummer omkring IPO sig selv. Dog en designer virksomhed undlader eller lykkes meget som enhver anden, ved at tjene de skiftende krav fra klientellet. Kors fortsætter med at innovere og producere nye produkter (utvivlsomt tegning fra eksponering både virksomheden og designer modtager fromProject bane). I slutningen af 2004, virksomheden lavet smart træk af at indføre en lavere omkostninger produktlinje. Det dræbte to fluer med ét smæk, at nå frem til et yngre publikum og så godt som loyale kunder, der måske har ønsket en lavere omkostninger mulighed. Det pote især i slutningen af 2008 og 2009 når den økonomiske nedtur begyndte og markederne begyndte at falde.

Andre modehuse, klar til store gevinster

Angiver, om Marc Jacobs har den samme kombination af held og kyndige stadig uvist. Men i mellemtiden er der nogle vidunderligt undersold muligheder forude i mode lagre. For eksempel, udkonkurreret tyske luksusmærke Hugo Boss de fleste af sektoren. I januar, selskabet indledt en American depositar modtagelse eller ADR, gennem New York Mellon bank, som vil vil tillade det at blive handlet i håndkøb i USA. I mellemtiden, Italiens Prada sprang 67% i 2013. Begge selskaber er bank på det økonomiske opsving i Europa, kombineret med en stigning i den kinesiske efterspørgsel hen til opreklamere salg går ind i næste år. For sin del åbner Hugo Boss nye butikker i Kina og Europa i de næste to til tre år at nå ekspanderende markeder. Prada meddelte, at det forventer at overstige salgsmål i Q4 og Q1. Derudover er det flytter ind på fragrance markedet via et nyt partnerskab med Coty.

Prada stadig er handel på pink sheets på grund af dens bevidst lav markedsværdi i USA og ikke arkivering med SEC, selvom det stillinger sin indtjening online. Jeg undgå generelt at anbefale handel off udvekslinger eller går til en udenlandsk valuta. For eksempel, er Hugo Boss børsnoterede på Xtra, en europæisk børs. Med disse to og andre luksusmærker har du mulighed for at drage fordel af deres vækstmuligheder ved at købe ind i en sektorspecifik gensidig fond som Consumer Staples Vælg sektor eller Pictel Premium Brands fond.

The Newport International Runway Group Latest Articles: Lamar Odom 3 års prøvetid


Lamar Odom har fået tre års prøvetid for kørsel Under påvirkning (DUI).

Den urolige basketball star slog et anbringende beskæftige sig med en California court og har optaget ingen konkurrence til afgiften, til gengæld for Kriminalforsorgen, skulle gennemføre en alkohol uddannelse klasse ved næste juni og betaler $1,814 i gebyrer og bøder.

Lamar - hvis ægteskab til Khloe Kardashian har været rystet af beskyldninger om utroskab og narkotika brug - blev anholdt på August 30 efter køre ujævnt på 101 motorvejen i Los Angeles viser hvad officerer kaldet "objektive tegn på forgiftning."

Reality stjernen nægtede at en blod-alkohol test efter hans anholdelse, der førte til automatisk et års kørselsforbud, som stadig står.

California Highway Patrol offentlig Informations officer Leland Tang tidligere fortalt RadarOnline: "han gjorde hvad ingen nogensinde bør gøre, han nægtede de kemiske analyser.

"Det betyder, at hans licens tilbagekaldes og Lamar kunne få de mest magtfulde advokat i verden og han vil stadig ikke har en licens for et år."

Lamar, 34, har også måttet acceptere tilfældige drug test som en del af sit tilbud til at spille for Los Angeles Clippers, som han forsøger at få sin basketball karriere tilbage på sporet.

En kilde sagde: "Lamar aftalt til at gennemgå tilfældige narkotika test administreres af holdet, og hvis han returnerer en beskidt test, vil han blive suspenderet fra holdet straks."

Khloe og Lamar har midlertidigt split, og i en preview-trailer for den nye serie af "At holde op med Kardashians" han kan høres på telefonen tigge hende om at tage ham tilbage.

Han siger: '' jeg ville gøre noget for at blive accepteret tilbage af jer fyrene. Du fyrene er alt jeg har fik.''
