Jeffrey-Fashion-Cares

Atlanta’s most philanthropic and fashionable affair, Jeffrey Fashion Cares, is set to celebrate 27 stylish years on Monday, August 26, 2019 at 7 p.m. The annual event, which has become a mainstay on Atlanta’s social circuit, is founded by acclaimed retailer and arbiter of style, Jeffrey Kalinsky, who recently expanded his Atlanta store in Phipps Plaza and is now offering both men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, accessories and jewelry.  What is aways an unforgettable evening, Jeffrey Fashion Cares will kick off with a cocktail reception and dynamic silent auction followed by a high-energy live auction.  The evening’s pièce de résistance, a runway show featuring Kalinsky’s style selections from high-end designers, once again promises to dazzle with looks from Celine, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Dries Van Noten, Sacai, Saint Laurent Paris, Balenciaga, Valentino, Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik. The 2019 event will be held at Phipps Plaza and benefit Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta, the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF), and the Medical University of South Carolina.


New this year, Marsha Archer, CEO and President of M Squared Public Relations, joins veteran co-chairs Lila Hertz and Louise Sams to continue Kalinksy’s mission to raise as much funds and awareness for the event’s beneficiaries as possible.  Selling out year after year, guests will slip into a completely transformed and private environment in the Monarch Court at Phipps Plaza located in the heart of Buckhead.  Last year’s event raised nearly $625,000 for the organizations, and in its history, Jeffrey Fashion Cares has grown into one of the largest combined AIDS and breast cancer benefits in the country. Sponsor and patron packages are currently available. A limited number of single seat tickets will be on sale beginning July 15, 2019.  For more information, visit jeffreyfashioncares.com.

The Future of Fashion

The future of fashion is with Une Belle Revolution so, if our future is held within our youth, then I can firmly say that with the talent coming from UBR, the future will most certainly be stylish. UBR is lead by Ms. V. Kottavei Williams who works tirelessly and passionately harnessing the creative spirit of her young and ambitious students. This unique fashion design program was created eighteen years ago by fashionado’s E. Vincent Martinez and taken over by Ms. Williams in 2012.

So exactly what is Une Bell Revolution and what makes it so special? UBR is Grady High School’s fashion design program - yes, high school. Grady High School is a gem, the shining star within its school district, excelling in the arts: visual, music, photography and fashion.

With Ms. Williams at the helm of the fashion program, her students are operating at a college level. They are learning garment construction, pattern making, special sewing techniques and illustration. By their senior year, UBR students are designing, creating and producing cohesive capsule collections. The annual runway show is a awe-inspiring and energetic celebration of the vision, talent and creativity of our youth.

Since the beginning of the fashion program, graduating designers have gone off to notable fashion schools like the Art Institute of Atlanta, Scad and FIT to name a few.

DOTC was created by Martinez in his Grady High School classroom 12 years ago and in alignment with the DOTC Foundation’s mission of supporting arts programs and fashion schools, the SEAM Grant has been created. Une Belle Revolution is its first recipient.  SEAM - Supporting Education in Apparel Mastery .

Metro Look Bridal Fashion Week

At New York Bridal Fashion Week F/W 2017 the Metro Look hair team, lead by hairstylist, T. Cooper, were sponsored by ECRU New York and ISA Professional to create fun, yet elegant hair for the Fabulous Philippines show for Bridal Fashion Week at the beautiful Central Park venue, Landmark on the Park. Fabulous Philippines: A Perfect Wedding Destination, is a collaboration between two of the country’s most respected and internationally recognized fashion designers, Albert Andrada and Barge Romas. The talented Filipino designers have consistently brought pride and created significant contributions the fashion industry.

Barge Ramos’ models where styled in textured ponytails using ECRU New York products: Setting Spray, Sunlight Styling Spray, and Texture Spray. The style was named the “Piecey Pony” for its effortless appearance. “Barge wanted something classic, but he also wanted to keep it youthful” said Cooper. The hairdo was created by making a deep side part and spraying the hair with Setting Spray to smooth it, before securing the hair into a ponytail. The ponytail was sprayed with Sunlight Styling Spray, and then loose waves were made with an ISA Professional 1” flat iron by bending the hair in alternate directions, leaving the ends straight. The look was finished by using Texture Spray and fingers to create a fun, undone texture.

Albert Andrada wanted his models to look classic and regal. The designer’s collection was complimented by beautiful headpieces, so the models were given large buns using ECRU New York products: Setting Spray, Acacia Protein Oil, and Dry Wax. The hairstyle was called the “Crowned Queen”. The style was created by securing the hair into a ponytail with a side part, and spray omg the hair with Setting Spray. The hair in the ponytail was then curled with a ISA Professional 1” flat iron, and Acacia Protein Oil was used to smooth the hair and create shine. Next, the curls were brushed out, and their hair was shaped into a large bun. This style was finished by using Dry Wax to tame baby hairs and flyaways, and placing a headpiece on top. “Beyond gorgeous” Cooper says of the look.

Yohji Yamamoto Ground Y Rejoins 'Ghost In The Shell' for SS19 Capsule

Following the initial collaboration launched almost exactly one year ago, Yohji Yamamoto’s youthful Ground Y imprint rejoins the Ghost In The Shell  franchise for another round of lightweight graphic goods. Utilizing a black palette as the base, the garments are all emblazoned with thematic imagery.

Ghost In The Shell: Innocence was the franchise’s second movie and the first feature-length anime film to compete at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. Coincidentally releasing close to the film’s fifteenth anniversary, the Ground Y clothing capsule is the first collection to draw influence specifically from the movie, as opposed to the anime series or prior film.

Clothing designs run the gamut of familiar Ground Y garments, repurposing Yohji Yamamoto‘s signature silhouettes into accessible layering pieces. These include extended-length collared shirts, hooded dresses and drop-crotch pants, with plenty of imagery sourced from the film. This includes illustrative apparitions that represent Innocence‘s digital “ghosts” and Japanese Kanji representing quotes from the dialogue. Elsewhere, a wireframe sketch of Major Motoko Kusanagi is emblazoned in stark colors on the hooded dress with ghostly effect.

Expect the new Ghost In The Shell: Innocence goods to hit Ground Y’s web store and Japanese storefronts on April 19.
