Architect Alan Tansey of Brooklyn, NY traced his mouse movement for one day and came up with this interesting image, made with the IOGraph program. After researching his flickr A Tanz's I took notice to the very detailed aesthetic of his work, which could ultimately be turned into a few very interest prints for garments. Check him out below.

Parson's Workwear Exhibit

At the closing of NYFW I was able to swing by ole Parson's to take a look at their work wear exhibit. It was launched in honor of the to design programs that have been established at the university; The MFA Fashion Studies Program and The MFA in Fashion Design and Society, both largely enthused by Donna Karen the queen of work wear.

The exhibition featured both iconic and cutting-edge work that engages the themes of “Workwear.” This includes a 1986 film installation of Donna Karan's iconic “Seven Easy Pieces,” a modern system of dressing for women where a handful of interchangeable items together create an entire wardrobe; and Boilersuit by Savile Row tailors Norton & Sons in collaboration with Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller, a modern utility outfit that accumulates patches as mementos of the wearer's life.

This exhibition really touched how workwear has entrenched us in America, yet it showcases a great color story and a ideal of ease in dressing for work and in everyday life.

Check out the interview below with Donna Karen and FIT Museum curator Valerie Steele as they discuss work wear, Donna's career and the future of fashion.

Fashion shorts are all the rag in fashion now, honestly they do give a good glimpse into the soul of a collection, showing how the garments move and how the designers are envisioning their mood for the season. This time around Rachel Roy takes us on a journey around her Spring 2010 Rachel By Rachel Roy Collection for Macy's. Jennifer Venditti is the girl that the film follows as she aimlessly wonders in a cute collection of berets, fun glasses, slouchy sweatshirts, prim skirts and blouses, and a cute relaxed all in one. This one should be another money maker for the burgeoning designer.

A Lee Life: 120 & Pushing

We all know the meaning of authentic, in terms of denim we think of iconic brands; Levi, Wrangler, and Rustler. This year Lee Jeans celebrates 120 years in the game. Lee came to fruition in 1889 by H.D. Lee in Salina, Kansas.

Lee engineered denim like no other; being the first to originate the bib overall including the denim mechanics overall, jeans with zip fly and the slim fitting jean. Lee also introduced the Rider Jacket, a tailored version of it’s wide predecessor with room giving armholes, and a great layering piece under outerwear.

Celebrity icons have embraced the worldliness that is Lee denim as well. Stars like Marilynn Monroe, James Dean, Bruce Springsteen, and Daryl Hannah all wore the brand on and off screen and the stage.

The collection of images below are from the commemorative collection, remakes of the original fits that made the brand what it is today. As a huge denim enthusiast I must say that Lee denim fits like no other. Each iconic denim brand has it’s pro’s but Lee fits the ass like no other.
