Sandy Linter - Iconic Makeup Artist of Jackie'O, Brooke Shields & more!
 
10:01
We were so pleased to interview the iconic makeup artist, Sandy Linter at Rita Hazan salon. Sandy has worked as a makeup artist since the 70s and was 1 of 5 MUAs in the city, which today there are millions it seems! She has worked with the top magazines, editors, celebrities, models, influencers & photographers in the industry. She can count Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Barbara Walters, Brooke Shields, Christie Brinkley, Elizabeth Hurley, Hugh Grant and many more incredible people as clients. She perfected her disco beauty look from her Studio 54 days. She grew up in Staten Island & moved to NYC as soon as she could. Her mom got subscriptions to all the high-fashion magazines. She loved makeup, but didn't know what to do with it. When Sandy would look through the magazines, she could look at the makeup and figure out how to achieve the look in the magazine. Sandy did her mother's makeup before she went to work. Sandy did one of the Vogue editor's makeup who then wrote a 2 page article feature on her in Vogue. After that, she was working with Vogue. The most iconic shoot Sandy worked on was a shoot for Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine where Debbie Harry was on the cover. Advice for an aspiring makeup artist: work with a company or salon, don't just work as a freelancer. Sandy is the author of 2 books. "Makeup Wakeup" & "Disco Beauty". For the first 30 years of Sandy's career, she made up women in their 20s. Then, Sandy started working with women older than that and she found they related to her. It is a great book if you'd like to update your makeup look. Disco Beauty was a labor of love book. She would be booked during the day with the best photographers & models and at the end of the day they would do a shoot for the book. If you are doubting where you should update your makeup, go to a makeup professional for advice. https://ritahazan.com https://www.amazon.com/Makeup-Wakeup-Revitalizing-Paperback-Common/dp/B0050SNHEI https://www.amazon.com/Disco-Beauty-Nighttime-Sandy-Linter/dp/0671251465 https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]

Day 4 NYFW: All Your Questions Answered About The Style That Binds Us
 
14:33
Our first stop during Day 4 was a market appointment with Michelle Waugh, who is an outerwear designer. Her pieces have been worn by Michelle Obama and Eva Chen. She has had some trunk shows on Moda Operandi. We have our first section of questions in the car! We talk about where we are from and what The Style That Binds Us is all about. TSTBU is a place of discovery. We want you to walk away from every piece of content having learned something. This content is of substance and speaks to the intersection of fashion, art, food, culture, music, dance, travel and more. We help with brand awareness for emerging designers. These may not be new to the fashion industry, but would probably be new to our audience. TSTBU is a place you can come and learn about new designers and you'll be able to tell your friends and family about your discoveries and they will think you are a font of knowledge and up-to-date on the under-the-radar brands! There are so many brands out there, so it is important to stand out from the rest and have a point-of-view. The brands we choose to work with are ones that we believe in and have established relationships with. In terms of styling services, The Style That Binds Us offers VIP styling days tailored to you, virtual styling and one-on-one styling. We will continue to feature style hack videos on our YouTube channel. We will also offer consulting services with an option for a brand audit, decide which stores make sense to target & focus on analyzing and growing your business. In terms of how we work together as mother and daughter, we show you how to style pieces for a variety of ages. We are bridging the age gap. We show how Delia vs. Alison would style a piece. We started TSTBU when multiple people told us we should do something together, so we thought we should at least try it. A goal for The Style That Binds Us is that we want people to come back thinking what will they learn this time, a designer can learn from our industry interviews hearing what other designers are doing. Delia is the cleaner eater, preferably five ingredients or less. She is a vegetarian. Reading through the ingredient labels is important, but tiring. Alison drinks coffee, Delia drinks matcha. Spring 2019 trends: sheer (both on the runway and street style), pastels, lightweight and textured plaids/tweeds in spring colors. The worst part about fashion week is the lines! We attend the Jonathan Simkhai presentation that featured a lot of lace, gingham, white and the sheer trend. He was a CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund winner. He is based in LA. The label was founded in 2001. It was really crowded because everyone wanted to see the collection! It smelled like flowers inside, so it was a calming and beautiful setting. We went to the Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Hotel. For a launch party and La Esquina for dinner. The last stop of the night was the Area runway show. The founders are Piotrek Panszczyk and Beckett Fogg. They met while studying at Parsons. Beckett grew up in Kentucky and went to UVA. Piotrek was born in Poland and grew up in Holland. They were CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund finalists. They started working on the brand in 2013. Their brand has RTW, shoes, bags and jewelry. Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Beyonce, Rita Ora and so many more wear their clothes. https://michellewaugh.com http://jonathansimkhai.com https://cfda.com/programs/designers/cfdavogue-fashion-fund https://www.ysl.com/us http://area.nyc https://www.newschool.edu/parsons/ http://www.virginia.edu https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] @deliafolk @thestylethatbindsus TheStyleThatBindsUs.com The Style That Binds Us YouTube channel The Style That Binds Us Podcast Filmed & Edited by Apto Media email: [email protected]

Our Love Affair with Manolo Blahnik
 
06:38
We are seriously obsessed with Manolo Blahnik shoes. They are absolute perfection. They are feminine, gorgeous shoes that make you feel powerful. Some of them you cannot stand all day in, so be prepared. More of a sitting shoe! :) But aren't they delicious to look at!? In a sea of divine designer shoes, we are somehow always drawn to the Manolo Blahnik section. We highly recommend watching "Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards" (link to the video on Netflix below. It is named this because Manolo made shoes for lizards out of the wrappers for Cadbury candy when he was growing up. He spent some time is Paris with Paloma Picasso (youngest daughter of Pablo Picasso). Next he moved to London and hung out with the Rock N' Roll crowd like Mick & Bianca Jagger. His shoes are works of art. He has achieved first name status, so if someone says "Manolos," you know what they are referring to. Having a presence on Sex & The City helped him become a household name. Some of our favorites - Denim lower heel 'BB' Pump with floral jacquard Black/Navy d'Orsay Pump Nude Chaos Ankle Strap Sandal Denim Mule Hangisi Pump that Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw wore at her wedding in SATC We are aware these are expensive. If you just start with one it would be the 'BB' Pump or the Chaos Sandal. You can get them on the RealReal and consignment shops as well as getting them new or on sale.

How to wear the 70s Trend without having to purchase all new pieces
 
05:53
In this style tutorial from TSTBU, we explore the 70’s trend and how to wear it if you love the 70’s vibe! Alison explains that you don’t have to buy everything new to create your version of a trend you love. You probably have some pieces in your closet now that can be mixed with one or two new pieces or accessories to create the total look. Key pieces in this trend are a wide leg pant, a flare or wide leg jean, hoop earrings, platform heels and scarves. “Scarf dressing” is super big right now, either in the form of a dress, skirt or blouse. You can also wear a silk scarf around the neck, tied around the head or even as a halter (in warm weather) to rock the look of the 70’s! After you watch the video, head to your closet and create your own version of this glamorous trend!

Day 7 NYFW: Fashion Week Partnerships, Market Appointments, and Staying Healthy during Fashion Month
 
15:50
We couldn't be more excited to partner with Bluestone Lane during NYFW to keep us eating healthy, hydrated and caffeinated. They make it so easy to stay healthy while on-the-go! We begin the day with breakfast at the Bluestone Lane Collective Cafe full of matcha, skim cappuccinos, avocado toast, greek yogurt, juice and more! Nicholas Stone is the founder of the company. He was both a professional athlete and worked in finance. You can learn all about his story in my interview with Nicholas (link below). The coffee culture in Australia is all about community. Since he didn't find that coffee culture in America, he decided to start his own. The most recent concept is a boozy coffee shop with a dinner menu. Next, we go to a market appointment with Paris99. Her pieces are sold at Opening Ceremony. Her collection is inspired by the 1950s and 1960s, so there were a lot of mini skirts and dresses. The fabrics are one's that would've been found in the home at that time, like vinyl, dotted swiss and ric rac. We go to our re-see appointment with Jonathan Simkhai. We love going to market appointments because it is a time to see the pieces in person and to discuss how we can work together and learn more about the brand. It is a great time for Alison to choose pieces for her styling clients. Next, we go to our re-see appointment with Prabal Gurung. We even get to catch up with him for a bit! What is a market appointment? When a designer has a show, you'll attend the runway show when you begin thinking about which looks make sense for mailers, what are the trends, what could be featured in an editorial story. In market, you choose your selection from all the pieces and edit them down. Then, you write the order by size by door for your store. The designer gives you a due date. All the orders and appointments are happening at the same time, which is why it is so hectic! In the show, the pieces go by so quickly, it is nice to see the pieces in a calmer setting. Sometimes, there are pieces in the showroom that weren't in the show. You are able to absorb the collection. We went to lunch at Cookshop. Next, we went to the Alice & Olivia presentation. We continue to see suiting and yellow as a trend. We got to see Stacey Bendet & Nicky Hilton Rothschild at the event. Alice & Olivia was founded in 2002. Stacey is a mother of 3. The brand can be found at Net-A-Porter, Galleries Lafayette, Harvey Nichols and more. Lastly, we go to The Organic Pharmacy for a fashion week refresh. We get a facial and some travel products for our trip to Europe. Kerry Wall, The US Retail Manager, talked to us all about the services The Organic Pharmacy offers. The Organic Pharmacy offers a variety of treatments. You can come to them with any of your health or beauty needs. They have both makeup and skin consultations. They also have a homeopath on staff. They offer a health assessment with an EIS machine (electrical interstitial scan). It measures the interstitial fluid, which is the fluid surrounding your cells. It can tell you about digestive disorders, hormone imbalance, foods you need to eat more of and avoid and tells you your toxin levels. They have facials and use microdermabrasion, oxygen, microcurrent, lymphatic drainage and slimming treatments. Kerry answers some beauty questions for us! What is the most important product for your skin? Face cleanser. It shouldn’t be drying or stripping. It should remove dirt, pollution, dead skin cells and makeup. Make sure to cleanse, tone and hydrate and use oils or gels packed with antioxidants to repair your skin. Moisturizer and use sunscreen. They have supplements and tinctures. They have things for stress and building your immune system. What supplements from The Organic Pharmacy do you suggest when traveling? Super antioxidants, jet lag pills and immune tonic.

Day 8 NYFW: Last Day of New York Fashion Week!
 
04:08
It is the last day of NYFW and tonight we head to London!! Our first appointment of the day was with Pepa Pombo. They are a Colombian knitwear brand founded in 1978. The Spring Summer 2019 collection was full and color and we absolutely loved it! Next, we head to the Dorothee Schumacher appointment at Jack Studios. Our last stop is the Theory presentation which we attend with Lisa Smith, founder of The PR Net. Delia is wearing two different animal prints in her outfit. Animal print is a huge trend for F18, so this is a fun way to wear this trend. The shoes are by Sarah Flint. She is from Boston, attended Parsons and is the founder of her eponymous shoe line. First, she was using the wholesale model and sold her pieces to luxury retailers such as Barneys New York. She decided to go direct to consumer, and therefore, was able to cut her retail prices because she eliminated the middle man. Because of this, her customers can get luxury pieces, made in Italy, at an affordable price. Women such as Lady Gaga, Cindy Crawford and Meghan Markle have worn her shoes. Now off to London Fashion Week!! https://www.pepapombo.com/ https://www.dorothee-schumacher.com/ https://www.theory.com/home/ https://www.sarahflint.com/ https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Filmed & Edited by Apto Media email: [email protected]

NYFW Day 2: Meet the designers
 
11:01
New York Fashion Week! Watch our day filled with fashion presentations, runway shows and market appointments to see the new SS19 (Spring Summer 2019) collections. We grab a quick working lunch in Soho at Mercer Kitchen with pizza, burrata and a quinoa salad. Fashion month is a great time to catch up with those you know since you are most likely attending the same events. During the Collina Strada show, Delia sees Angela Koh (market editor for T: The New York Times Style Magazine - https://www.nytimes.com/section/t-magazine), Madeline Fass (Associate Market Editor at Vogue - https://www.vogue.com) and Pamela Love (jewelry designer - https://www.pamelalove.com). Next, we head to the PH5 presentation and get to speak with the designers about their inspiration for the new collection, designed by Wei Lin and Mijia Zhang. We have a market appointment with Novis, founded by Jordan Warmflash. Her collection is filled with color and we loved it! We stop in at The Highline Hotel for coffee for an energy boost! Next, we go to The Assemblage, which is a co-working space in NYC for the Mercedes Salazar presentation. She is a Columbian designer who makes statement earrings and handbags. In terms of jewelry trends, it continues to be all about the ear. Wearing statement earrings is a great way to take an outfit from day to night and to partake in this trend. We go to Shutz Shoes in Soho for an event with Sydney Sadick, one of our friends. We are all about women supporting women and therefore, want to support them in any way we can. We ran into Deanna First there who is a fashion illustrator. We attend the Kim Shui runway presentation. We go to the Cartier Garage event at the Cartier Mansion on 5th Avenue. Finally, we end the night at Bergdorf Goodman to celebrate the launch of Noir. We speak with Linda Fargo, the Fashion Director, Natalia Fedner and Gigi Burris who are RTW and hat designers that have pieces featured in the shop.There was even a contortionist at the event.

How To Find The Right Hat For Your Face Shape
 
08:06
Do certain hats work better with different face shapes? Yes! We walk you through in our latest video with Gigi Burris! Learn all about Gigi Burris on our Industry Interview YouTube video with her below - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI4l_ciWEys&t=318s The universal hat... The Regan hat is one of their most universally flattering styles because it has an average crown hat with a 2 1/2 inch brim. Can work well with a slender and long face shape, but if you have a wider face, you want to go with a wider brim. For the wider face... Go with a wider brim. If you are petite, sometimes wider brims can overwhelm you so be mindful of stature as well as face. The Jeanne would work well here. For the formal look... The Requiem Fedora with a sloped brim and more structured. For the petite woman... Shorter brim could work here, especially if your hair is long in length. The Nell would would well here. For the Greek Fisherman's hat... If you don't want a brim at all. It also keeps you warm. A more casual look, called The Georgie. For the hat you can fit in your purse... If you don't want any structure, they also have The Ella Beret. For the fancy baseball cap... The Ana Cap is great if you like to bop around town in a baseball cap. It is made of felt and is seamless. It gives you the sporty look. The surprise!!! Gigi Burris collaborated with Disney for Mickey Mouse's 90th birthday. This is close to home for her since she grew up in Florida. The collection is sold on her website and also at Nordstrom Space. There are 3 hat styles: M90 Fedora takes inspiration from Mickey Mouse's ears, The Greek Fisherman Cap 1928 inspired by Steamboat Willie and Signature Mickey which is a 14k gold headband inspired by his hairline silhouette. Sarah Jessica Parker wore the piece which is a handmade veil, for a more couture look. http://gigiburris.com https://gigiburris.com/collections/disney-x-gigi-burris https://shop.nordstrom.com/content/space-gigi-burris?queryChange=true https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]
What if I don't know my style type?
 
05:44
A lot of times people want you to describe your style in a couple of words. We feel this is a challenge, because we often choose our outfits based on our mood or the occasion and don't want to be boxed in. Sometimes we are feminine and flirty, other times, we want to be more rocker chick by wearing a leather motorcycle jacket and heels to conquer the world. If there is a black tie or cocktail event, we may want to look a bit sexier / glam and wear a dress that is more form-fitting. Some women think if they don't have a specific look, they have no style, which isn't true! We dress in femininity with a bite. Dress intentionally for your mood. We want to look fabulous when we get dressed and show off our personality. You can take portions usually associated with a certain type and mix it up. We want you to have fun with fashion! How do you find your personal style aesthetic? Confused about what style type you are? What is the perfect look for you? What's your style personality?

Industry Interview with Gigi Burris Millinery on how hats transform an outfit
 
14:34
We had the pleasure of interviewing Gigi Burris of Gigi Burris Millinery. She is based in Brooklyn, New York and her studio is on the Lower East Side. She was a 2009 graduate of Parsons School of Design where she was nominated to be the Designer of the Year. She studied RTW there. She was a CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund finalist from 2014. Her hats have been worn by Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Haley Baldwin, Taylor Swift and many more! Gigi grew up in Florida and didn't always dream of being a milliner. She loved art and working with her hands. Growing up, she worked with the local museum. She studied art in high school. She went abroad to Parsons Paris and got to focus on craft & heritage. Whenever she sketched RTW, it always had a hat. They offered a millinery class and she begged her friend to take it too so they wouldn't cancel the class. A milliner is someone who makes hats / a hat-maker. She has entrepreneurs in her family, but she never dreamed of starting her own company. Even though she was top 10 of her class, it was hard for her to find a job once she graduated from college since there aren't enough jobs for the influx of students each year. She worked part-time as a freelancer with stylists. She also worked with Dennis Basso where she worked with exotic skins and fur. If you're going to use fur, make sure the animals come from a farm that you know they are treated with the best care possible. The Parsons program is quite intense - similar to law school, MIT or a doctorate. You're expected to pull all-nighters, travel, come in on the weekends, etc, so it really prepares you for the working world. It prepares you for the work-life balance of work taking up most of your time. To work in fashion, you need to know that the time commitment and the financial return might not be in alignment. How do you make a hat? By hand, which is a technique that is centuries old. It starts with a carved wooden block. A hat has two pieces, a crown (the top part) and a brim. The shape of the hat begins in wood. They work with vintage blocks from the 1890s-1980s. They work with a skilled craftsman who can carve their own blocks. Once they carve the shape, you choose a brim. You place the material over the wood and you mold it with steam. The moisture allows for the material to form around the wood. Then it is baked in an oven. The process is all done with fire - a fire oven that stays on all day long. If it has a welt (a seam around the edge), you'd put a wire in it. You need to put a sweatband inside the hat that can serve as a buffer for your skin. How many hats are in a collection? She designs with a merchandising background when she designs. When you see her collection in the store or a website, it should look cohesive and transportive. In terms of SKUs, it varies. Without color ways, they will be 28 at minimum and they have gone up to 40 in the past. You can do wide brims, short brims, caps, beanies, etc. Materials - millinery is a category that has been shrinking, so some of the suppliers they've used have gone out of business. They used to put cotton grosgrain inside the hats, but that facility closed. It is a challenge to find a place to get materials. They get straw from Ecuador and Switzerland. She gets felt from the Czech Republic. Fur comes from Finland. CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund - she was such a small brand when she went through. She got advice from such an incredible panel of judges, such as, Anna Wintour, Andrew Rosen and Diane von Furstenburg. She was able to absorb everything and tried to apply it to the best of her ability. It helped her feel welcome in the New York City fashion community. She developed a family with the people she worked with - Paul Andrew, Eva Fehren and Ryan Roche. They show with the main season fashion calendar because of wholesalers. Their client is a buy now, wear now client. She is buying straw through August. She goes to felts around September/October through the wintertime. They show during market and often work with RTW designers. In the past she has worked with Brandon Maxwell, Christian Siriano, Simon Miller, Tanya Taylor, Alice & Olivia and Brother Vellies. With fashion week, if you decide to take on a project, the designer may not end up using the hats. Hats are the last thing stylists add and the first thing they edit out. They host market appointments, invite press/editors to see the new collection to think of upcoming magazine issues and shoot. She goes to Paris Fashion Week and holds market appointments. Gigi had a partnership with W Hotels and they went on an inspiration trip to Panama. http://gigiburris.com https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]
Industry interview with jewelry designer Monica Sordo on switching careers & her own brand
 
13:52
Monica Sordo grew up in Venezuela and was surrounded by the materials used in her designs in her father's design workshop. She went to school for fashion styling & merchandising in Milan. She worked at Marie Claire Spain as an accessories & fashion editor and in PR at Christian Louboutin before founding her own line. A lot of inspiration comes from her background and growing up in Caracas, Venezuela. Architecture is a huge inspiration for her. When she was a child, she loved playing office and being the boss wearing her mom's high heels and her father's briefcase. She wanted to work in fashion as an editor. All the people she worked with always told her they could see her starting her own brand. From her past work experiences, she was able to start her jewelry brand. She knows the needs of an editor and also how to work with press. Working as an editor involved a lot of boxes and garment bags. You get to meet talented people, get to discover creativity, get to travel, go to fashion shows & events. There is A LOT of work behind it. She loves when she gets to shoot her campaigns because she gets to style again when she was an editor. She is a designer and creative director. Traveling constantly & attending the shows was an important way to discover new talent when she was an editor. She loves to travel and be in constant movement. She finds inspiration in everything she sees. It is a melting pot of experiences. Sometimes she doesn't even realize where the inspiration comes from and something will later remind her she referenced that when designing. Christian Louboutin is an amazing human being. She worked with them when they were landing in the US and growing. She was a PR Assistant. She learned about wholesale and market week. So many boxes were coming. She never saw so many shoes in her life. As an editor she was used to fashion week and presentations, not market week. Buyers have a budget and they come to invest in the next season. She came from being a well-known editor in Madrid. She hasn't worked in English before, so she needed to now send work emails. It was challenging and interesting. It was a great time for the brand. After 2 years of working at Louboutin, she decided to start her own brand. Her father had an industrial workshop and loves creating new things. Her mom always wanted to work in fashion, but she worked in finance. She is a jewelry designer as well as Monica. Monica has the workshop, she has her mom and she wanted to do something on her own. It was organic. It took her time to research and find her own style. Monica has the faith in herself and the strength to do what she does today. She worked with her mom's jewelers to get started. Everything is possible. You need to find a way to make it functional. Design isn't an easy road. You have to do a lot of research. Her first store was FiveStory. Monica has a strong point-of-view. This is important, because you don't want your brand to look like other brands. She is influenced by Art Deco and Pre-Columbian civilizations. Her pieces are all one-of-a-kind because they are hand cut for each of the pieces. The natural stones will have different colors which adds a big value to the pieces. She loves architecture, monumental, feminine and flirty. It is an interesting mix. They work mostly with brass with inlay work and all-natural stones. Most stones are sourced naturally in Peru, Ecuador or Brazil. When you cut the stones, anything can be happening inside, more of one color, may be glassy or full of lines. They innovate with their artisans and create new styles with them. It is important to know how the calendar works. It is really challenging, because the timing is set and not flexible. You need to be organized and make sure your team understands the importance. You have to divide your season into having time to design and develop while selling the collection you designed before. Need to understand you need to be flexible with yourself. Need to make it happen. It is challenging to have the collections ready on time. Monica is good at visualizing. She loves designing while moving, for example on the subway. She loves the rush, movement, energy and all the people inspire her. She has her best ideas walking around. She is designing constantly. 3 months before market, it is time to sit down and design. To make her pieces, she needs to sit down in the workshop with her team and talk about weights/lengths, position where the post is going to be, etc. Lots of manual work in the workshop. https://www.monicasordo.com https://www.marie-claire.es http://christianlouboutin.com http://fivestoryny.com http://cfda.com https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]
SS19 TRENDS, MEETING MORE DESIGNERS, THE END OF FASHION MONTH, AND WHAT'S NEXT FOR US!
 
21:35
It is our last video of Paris Fashion Week (PFW) & Fashion Month!! Our SS19 Trend recap was filmed at the Ritz Paris. There is not a fashion week that isn't worth attending, but you are in a different mindset during each one. New York is fashion shows, market appointments, presentations and after parties.London Fashion Week is shows and presentations. Milan Fashion Week is runway shows and presentations.Paris Fashion Week is the ultimate finale featuring all different scenarios.You'll be seeing people who showed at NYFW, LFW & MFW in Paris since everyone goes their for market.

What is in the runway show may not go into production, it may just be the runway piece. How important is it that brands partake in fashion month? Extremely important! It is when all the buyers, stores, editors, influencers, etc are all in one place and their attention is on the show. If a fashion show is too expensive, have an event at least. How did we pack for fashion month?This was a challenge because you are supposed to be dressed stylishly every single day.We started with the basics.We used accessories to change it up: scarves, sunglasses, shoes, handbags and jewelry.Put your shoes in individual shoe bags.For your clothes, try to pack them on the hanger and drape them in the suitcase, so you can take them out and they won't be as wrinkled.Make sure to pack a travel steamer.

ALL ABOUT PARIS FASHION WEEK
 
13:38
Our 3rd video of Paris Fashion Week (PFW) is a great opportunity to see the sites of Paris and continue learning about new emerging designers you may not have heard of before. You'll get to see the Louvre Museum, Tuileries Gardens, Pont Alexandre III, Eiffel Tower and Place Vendome. We answer some questions about PFW. PFW is where all of Europe comes & also some United States (New York City/NYC especially). NYFW & PFW are the biggest fashion weeks for market appointments where you place the buy and get to see the collection in person. That is a great time to further establish relationships with designers. The Style That Binds Us team can be your eyes & ears in these countries bringing you new brands, but we want to make sure we know all about the brand & their story, have met the team and seen the pieces in person. Breakdown of the fashion weeks - NYFW is filled with fashion shows, presentations, after parties and market appointments LFW is a bit smaller, lots of shows, but not many market appointments, because those would happen in Paris MFW is mostly presentations & runway shows and a couple of market appointments PFW is the ultimate finale with LOTS of market appointments, shows & presentations One thing we love about this month is getting to go into places we normally wouldn't if only visiting the city for the presentation, show & market appointment locations. They are all spread out over these cities, so it is a great way to see the city. It was interesting coming to Paris as a working trip instead of on vacation, because we have really only seen the sites by car. Some of our favorite spots in the past were: Musee D'Orsay & Versailles, for example. The typical Parisian woman moves at a slower pace than women in the US, she is more deliberate and serious about things. Her self-care is more private. Their uniform is the skinny jean, black pump or a kitten heel, leather jacket, t-shirt, scarf, sunglasses and red lipstick. Link to get your core wardrobe checklist - https://thestylethatbindsus.com/start-here We had a market appointment with Beau Souci and met with the designer Aurélie Larrousse. The Spring Summer 2019 collection would be perfect for a honeymoon wardrobe. It has just enough print & color and it isn't too loud. We loved meeting with Camille Omerin of Maison Pere. She enjoys flee markets, reupholstering furniture, vintage pieces & interior decorating. Before launching her line, she worked at Balmain, Lanvin, Chanel and Chloe. We had an appointment with the jewelry line Gaya de Garnazelle & Garnazelle. We also had an appointment with Emilia Wickstead. She was born in New Zealand & is based in London. The pieces are really feminine. Kate Middleton has worn her pieces. She is known for fairytale dressing and has lots of dramatic dresses in bold colors. For example, a red carpet look with a large bow at the back. She is introducing shoes, which she worked with Charlotte Olympia on. We had a breakfast meeting with an Amsterdam-based brand, Tos Gallery. We went to dinner at Beaumarly, which is in the arches of the Louvre. Not only does it have a fantastic view, it also has delicious food. The next day, we had a market appointment with Whit, before heading to grab coffee at Cafe Charlot. A husband-and-wife duo are the creators of Whit and the husband is an artist. He designs the prints and she designs the clothes. Next is a market appointment with Ssheena. Sabrina Mandelli is the founder of the brand. Prior to founding her brand, she worked at Dolce&Gabbana. She is the Womenswear Head Designer at Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh. The next stop was an appointment with Ximena Kavalekas who makes python handbags and we ran into Jeffrey Levinson (link to our interview with him on TSTBU YouTube channel below! We were relived to learn that no snakes are harmed in making her bags. The bags are made in Italy and the pythons are fed vitamins in order to shed their skin. She did a partnership with Margherita Missoni. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FWDtJyd06M&index=2&list=PL51hAy7vV36RNtuCzpR9u0OWoCz89gtz7 We had a working lunch at Les Cocottes, which is by Chef Christian Constant. We had a market appointment with Lena Hoschek, which is an Austrian brand.

Bridal Fashion Week New York City Fall 2019
 
14:39
Our first BFW! We didn't realize that BFW is for a year in advance, so we weren't seeing S19, but we were seeing F19. There were lots of presentations and runway shows. Delia got to see Shelley Brown, who works at The Knot (we previously interviewed her on our blog)! It was a jam-packed schedule, which was tiring since we had just arrived from Paris Fashion Week! Lots of traffic in Manhattan made it challenging to get to everything on time, but it all worked out! There were a lot of sexy bridal dresses. The naked dressing trend continues to bridal, which you would think would be for the wedding night, but might as well show everyone else too! It was interesting seeing so many brides walking down the runway since on your wedding day it is attention all on you! There has been lots of diversity on the catwalk in terms of sizes and colors. BFW is very small, so you see the same people at the shows and presentations. I am obsessed with the back of the wedding dress. Usually the front is quieter and the back makes a statement. Day 1 - Delia wears Karolina Zmarlack, Gaviria Earrings and Faure Le Page bag. Day 2 - Delia wears Robert Rodriguez Studio black suede dress, GBGH hoop earrings, Smoke x Mirrors sunglasses and Ruigrok Van Der Werven handbag Interview with Shelley Brown on the TSTBU website talking about what being a Fashion & Beauty Editor is like - https://thestylethatbindsus.com/2017-6-4-shelley-brown-fashion-beauty-editor-the-knot/ Link to our "Find Your Perfect Fall Look" Intermix Event Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSVHx4_KyMI&t=9s We went to the below shows/presentations - ALEXANDRA GRECCO, The McKittrick Hotel (where Sleep No More is filmed) Julie Vino LAURE DE SAGAZAN Atelier Pronovias Olia Jenny Yoo Sarah Seven Carol Hannah Kelly Faetanini Naeem Khan Trends - Removable sleeves to change your look throughout the day/night - start with a long sleeve for the wedding, for the pictures you could change it up and the party, take them off and it would become a sleeveless or strapless or dress.

Day 5 NYFW: All Your Questions Answered About Fashion Week
 
10:06
Welcome to Day Five of New York Fashion Week! We began the day at a preview of the House of Doyenne’s see now buy now collection. Their brand is demi-couture and made in New York City. The founder, Laura Day Webb, walks us through the inspiration behind their collection. We answer all your questions about NYFW! What is the point of NYFW? What are the different fashion week seasons? What is see now buy now? What is the difference in a fashion show and a presentation? How do you get into the fashion shows? What advice would you give someone looking to get into the fashion industry? London, Milan or Paris? Which city are you most excited to visit during fashion month? Did you have any sponsored partnerships during fashion week? We went backstage with Jin Soon Choi at the Tibi runway show. Aveda did the hair, Bobbi Brown did the makeup and Jin Soon did the nails. We ran into @lcbstyle, Caroline Bramlett, who is from Alabama (like us!). Lastly, we attend the Prabal Gurung fashion show, which JINSoon also did the nails for. We absolutely love Prabal. He is a feminist and designs for all body types. He is known for his bold color and powerful silhouettes. He is all about female empowerment. We feel strong and ready to take on the world when wearing Prabal. Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, Bella Hadid, Winnie Harlow and Candice Huffine were some of the models in his show. He launched Men’s for the first time with this collection. We loved how diverse both in size and ethnicity the runway was. His pieces were bright and bold with the yellow that we’ve seen as a trend and was lots of fun! https://www.houseofdoyenne.com/ https://www.theorganicpharmacy.com/ https://www.bluestonelane.com/ http://jinsoon.com/ https://m.aveda.com/ https://m.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/ https://www.lcbstyle.com/ http://prabalgurung.com/ My interview on TSTBU blog with Margo Marrone, founder of The Organic Pharmacy https://thestylethatbindsus.com/2017-3-26-margo-marrone-the-organic-pharmacy/ My interview on the TSTBU blog with Nicholas Stone, founder of Bluestone Lane https://thestylethatbindsus.com/2017-4-9-nicholas-stone-bluestone-lane/ https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Filmed & Edited by Apto Media email: [email protected]
DAY 2 MFW: MEETING ITALIAN DESIGNERS DURING MILAN FASHION WEEK
 
13:13
Day 2, we began the day by going to the Modigliani Art Experience at MUDEC. We learned a lot about his life and paintings and got to watch a 360 degree video! The first show of the day was Tiziano Guardini. He has partnered with Mercedes Benz and is all about sustainability. We saw one of his pieces at the Fashioned By Nature exhibit at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London! Next, it was time for lunch at Bar Luce at Fondazione Prada. The Prada show was that afternoon, so unfortunately, we couldn't explore the museum and will have to go back later. For lunch, we had sandwiches and cappuccinos. We HAD to also have dessert, which consisted of tiramisu and hazelnut gelato. After, we went to the Raquel Diniz presentation and were glad to get to meet Raquel. The collection was full of prints and feminine pieces that can seamlessly go from day to night. The next stop was the Luisa Beccaria show at Palazzo Reale. It was outside, so it was VERY HOT, but the collection and show were beyond incredible. The collection was inspired by Alice & Wonderland, so it was a mix between Tim Burton and Harry Potter. The music was just as dramatic as the clothing. We saw the Vogue US team there as well. After, we went to the Attico presentation, which was at a penthouse event space with a 360 degree video of Milan. Next, we stopped by the Sara Battaglia presentation, which is filled with color. She has both RTW and handbags. The last show of the day was Daizy Shely. For dinner, we went to the Bulgari Hotel and sat outside in the garden. We ran into Nicolò Beretta, who is the founder of Giannico and the Creative Director of L'Autre Chose. We are going to his presentation later in the week. We had an absolutely delicious meal of vegetable soup, pasta and got dessert of course! http://www.mudec.it/eng/modigliani-art-experience/ http://tizianoguardini.com https://www.milanomodadonna.it/it/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvtGpqcPQ3QIVLijTCh0yng41EAAYASAAEgLge_D_BwE https://www.mercedes-benz.com/en/ https://www.vam.ac.uk http://www.fondazioneprada.org/barluce-en/?lang=en http://www.fondazioneprada.org/?lang=en https://www.raqueldiniz.it http://luisabeccaria.it http://www.theattico.com http://www.sarabattaglia.com https://www.bulgarihotels.com/en_US/milan https://www.lautrechose.com/it/ http://giannicoofficial.com http://www.daizyshely.com https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Edited by Apto Media email: [email protected]

DAY 3 NYFW: Designers, Presentations, Fashion Shows and more!
 
06:02
Day Three of New York Fashion Week!! We began the day at the Baccarat Hotel for the Amir Tagih presentation (PR by Savannah Engel). He is a new designer and worked at Monse and Oscar de la Renta before starting his own line. He is from Texas, so is a fellow Southerner! The next stop was at the Chloe Gosselin presentation for her new shoe collection. She was previously a model and is married to the magician David Copperfield. Her presentation was extremely creative and well-done, with the models and shoes behind a screen and also models standing around wearing the shoes. We loved the booties and heels! We ate lunch at Lafayette and had lots of delicious pasta, salads and desserts. We attended the Flying Solo show at Spring Studios to see the GBGH Jewelry. Delia wears a Jeffrey Levinson bag and Marni dress in the video. Lastly, we attend the Vivienne Hu runway show. http://www.amirtaghi.com https://www.baccarathotels.com http://www.monse.com http://oscardelarenta.com https://www.chloegosselin.com http://lafayetteny.com https://flyingsolo.nyc https://www.springstudios.com https://www.jeffreylevinson.com http://www.marni.com https://www.viviennehu.com https://gbgh.nyc https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Day 3 NYFW: A Full Day at NYFW Day 3: Another Day of NYFW Day 3: Discovering New Designers and New Collections Filmed & Edited by Apto Media email: [email protected]
A Day in the Life - We Visit the Cloisters
 
06:52
Come with the women of The Style That Binds Us as they visit the second part of the fashion exhibit, “Heavenly Bodies, Fashion and the Catholic Imagination “ at the Cloisters, an outpost of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Cloisters is a museum in Fort Tryon Park in Washington Heights, Upper Manhattan, New York City, specializing in European medieval architecture, sculpture and decorative arts, with a focus on the Romanesque and Gothic periods, which makes it the perfect place to show off these magnificent pieces by designers who were strongly influenced by Catholicism. The presentation is truly breathtaking set against this stunning background. We start with a tour of The Cloisters then head to brunch at Cafe Clover, stop in to check out the new Clover Grocery (and fall in love!! It is SO AMAZING!) and end the day with a manicure at Jin Soon nail salon.

DAY 3 MFW: SPEAKING ITALIAN, MARKET APPOINTMENTS, LIVING LIKE THE ITALIANS, AND MORE!
 
14:06
On to Day 3 of Milan Fashion Week. By this point, we are feeling really tired, as well as our feet! When you come to Italy, they move at a more relaxed pace. When waiting for a car or show, or when you're at a restaurant. The issue is going to bed late and getting up early and being go, go, go all day! Should you be looking outside at the beautiful sites, is there an Instagram story we should be posting, is there a YouTube video we need to approve, taking notes of which pieces would work for which of our clients, making note of the trends? Next up was the Plan C Presentation, which is a brand created by the Castiglioni family, formerly of Marni. We love that the brand has a family aspect to it since the people behind the brand are family. The clothes are modern, very smart. The colors are chic and subdued. They also have a jewelry brand called Aliita. We went to the Alexandre Birman presentation and Olivia Palermo was there. He is a Brazilian shoe designer. His signature is a knot tied in a bow. He has lots of different options from stilettos, platforms, wedges, low heel, flat heel, thong sandal, sneaker. His shoes are super colorful with lots of texture. Direct message @alisonbruhn if you are interested in attending a VIP shopping event! We had a market appointment with the designer of Alcoolique and also with jewelry designer Lil Milan. We love getting to interact with the designers and tell our audience about new brands! Direct message @alisonbruhn to set up a private VIP shopping experience to get to go to a showroom and meet designers. We ran into Veronica Varetta, whose line, Lil Milan, was founded in 2014. As a student, she couldn't find the jewelry at the right price point she was looking for. She wanted jewelry to melt into your skin as if it were a tattoo so you'd forget about it. We had lunch at Drogherie Milanesi and had pizza for the first time in Italy that trip! We went to the Loro Piana presentation. It was in an extremely elegant and relaxing environment where the attendees were sitting and chatting. We did some vlogging and discussed that we are walking through Brera and that there are lots of motorcycles, vespas and scooters in Milano. The next stop was the La Double J pop up for both RTW and homewares. Their pieces are filled with gorgeous prints that are based on vintage print patterns. Jennifer Jane Martin (JJ Martin) is the founder. She is an America who came to Italy for love. Through her connections she patterned the brand after women she admired in her new country. The fabrics used are silks, cottons and jacquards. The collection is bright and cheerful. She partners with Italian heritage brands such as Kartell for the homewares. We attended the Mr. & Mrs. Italy presentation. They are branching more into RTW and have lots of fun pieces, especially with camo. They are known for the brightly colored fur on the inside of their parkas. The brand was such a hot seller, especially in the beginning. Geraldina Bassani Antivari is the Creative Director. Geraldina started playing around with parkas and sewed in colored fur to modernize the concept. Rihanna, Cara Delevingne, Chiara Ferragni, Gwyneth Paltrow and more have been seen wearing the jackets. Next up was the Au Jour Le Jour presentation. They even had an Italian band! The pieces were bright and colorful with high slits. We attended the Sergio Rossi presentation in a beautiful library. The models got to relax and lounge, some reading books and some napping, which we wished we could do! We are still seeing silver accessories as a trend as well as fringe. We have a shoe obsession so going to the shoe presentations is dangerous! There was even an area outside where people were having cocktails and snacks. We went to the Blaze Milano presentation, which makes the perfect blazer. There are lots of hidden details that make for a fabulous jacket.

INTERVIEW: Jin Soon Choi on how she is influencing New York Fashion Week
 
10:41
Interesting interview with the famous manicurist Jin Soon Choi. She takes us through her illustrious career from the early days cycling from appointment to appointment where she was named bicycle Jin up to present day where she collaborates with top designers to create the looks for runway shows. She has worked with the top models, designers and celebrities, such as Karlie Kloss, Marc Jacobs, Phillip Lim, Tibi and more. As Bobbi Brown said herself, Jin Soon is a big deal! How do runway designers create the nail looks for fashion shows? How far in advance do they begin working on this? Watch the video to find out!! Jin Soon's hand and foot nail salons are my go-to spot for manicures and pedicures. Delia first met her four years ago when she was working on the Cosmetics buying team at Barneys New York. Jin Soon Choi is Korean and moved to Manhattan in 1991. She only knew one person from Korea and they turned out to be her roommate. Jin didn't speak English when she first arrived, so she had no choice but to work in either a grocery or a nail salon. Her eponymous nail polish was founded in 2012. There are 4 nail salons in New York City in Tribeca, Lower East Side, Upper East Side and West Village. The first salon opened in 1999. Her husband is an architect and he designed the salons. She discusses how she got into the fashion industry, how she learned to start and grow a business & the process of designing a nail collection. When creating a collection, she starts with a theme so there is a story included in the collection. She does a lot of research surrounding this theme. Her products are eco-friendly, safe & healthy nail polish AND long-lasting. She speaks to why she created nail polish in this way and how she did it in this interview. Call in advance to book an appointment, because her salons are so popular! In terms of naming her collections, at first she used words from classic Jane Austen novels or from poetry. Words like austere and audacious. Hair, makeup and nails in the fashion shows are part of the styling, so the stylists plays a big role. Jin works on a lot of advertising campaigns with fashion designers - Versace, Marc Jacobs, Moschino (Jeremy Scott). What are the Fall 2018 nail trends? Jin discusses she is loving neutral colors now. Be creative, work hard and be ambitious when starting a business. http://jinsoon.com INTERVIEW: How She Did It, All About How Jin Soon Nail Polish Began INTERVIEW: All About How Jin Soon Created Her Salon INTERVIEW: Korea to NYC, How Jin Soon Took The Fashion Industry by Storm INTERVIEW: How Jin Soon Entered and Conquered the Fashion Industry https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Edited by Apto Media email: [email protected]
Day 6 NYFW: Fashion Show Backstage Access, Libertine Show, and so much more!
 
11:11
DAY 6 of New York Fashion Week!! We begin the day with a re-see appointment of Amir Taghi’s first collection. Next, we attend the Angel Chen show on NYFW T-Mall China day. We head to Bergdorf Goodman for a quick snack at Palette, which is a cafe on the lower level featuring artist-in-residence, Ashley Longshore’s, art which is shoppable. We are there to go to the Libertine show with Betty Halbreich and her assistant, Maria. Libertine was founded by Johnson Hartig, who is one of Betty’s good friends. Unfortunately, Betty wasn’t feeling well and she wasn’t able to attend the show. After the show, we went out to dinner at King. Three women are the owners of King and the menu changes daily. They don’t use menus, and the experience is as if you were in Provence. It was absolutely delicious! http://www.amirtaghi.com/ https://www.bergdorfgoodman.com/ https://www.ashleylongshore.com/ https://ilovelibertine.com/ http://kingrestaurant.nyc/ https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Filmed & Edited by Apto Media email: [email protected]
DAY 4 + 5 MFW: OUR LAST TWO DAYS OF MILAN FASHION WEEK
 
19:20
Day 4 - Our first stop was the Giannico presentation. Nicolò Beretta is the Founder + Creative Director and he is also the Creative Director of L'Autre Chose. Delia met Nicolò while she was working at Barneys. He is adorable and is based in Milan. We are obsessed with both him and his shoes!!We ran into Nicolò while we were eating at the Bulgari Hotel, which was such a surprise. When speaking with Veronica Varetta (founder of Lil Milan - whose necklaces we wore in this episode), we realized they know each other and are friends as well. What a small world it is!! After the Giannico presentation, we walked around Milano with Veronica, who grew up there. Next stop was the Jimmy Choo presentation....more shoes!!Thankfully, there were desserts there too! There was someone there making cannoli that you could eat right then and there. We got to see the new handbags, shoes and sunglasses (launching Spring 2019!). There were a lot of people there we knew: the Net-A-Porter team, Glenda Bailey, Sandra Choi, Ken Downing and Edward Enninful. We found out Chelsea Goldman of CF. Goldman and Chloe Gosselin were in town since they had been selected as Vogue Rising Talents who partnered with Swarovski. We stopped by and she walked us around telling us about the different designers and we got to catch up over lunch. A lot of the venues during MFW seem to be in palazzos, which is fun to see! We were excited to learn lots of people we know were in Milan at the same time. Afterwards, we went to the Tod's presentation to see their new RTW, handbag and shoe collections. Next was the Piazza Sempione presentation. With their SS19 collection, they are modernizing workwear, especially the suit. The presentation was in a gorgeous setting...another palazzo! They had four fashion photographers take pictures of the collection and showcased their images at the event. It was neat to see 4 very different takes on the collection! The brand was founded in 1991 (Delia's birth year!) by a husband and wife duo. We had a market appointment with the Tiziano Guardini team. His collection is super colorful and we like that he is so focused on sustainability. He was a couturier and also has RTW pieces. We saw one of his pieces that looks like leather, but is made out of mushrooms at the V&A museum, Fashioned By Nature Exhibit. If you put one of his tennis shoes in a field after 700 days it will disintegrate. After, we went to the Giuseppe Zanotti presentation. He had created special Michael Jackson tribute sneakers and even had one of the jackets he had worn in shows at the event (people kept whispering that the jacket had to have $1 Million of insurance). We saw Olivia Palermo there. The shoes are beautiful and sexy - red carpet Hollywood glamour. For dinner, we sat outside in a courtyard Il Salumaio Di Montenapoleone, which was a lovely experience. Day 5 - We went BACK to the Fondazione Prada. We grabbed some coffee and pastries before exploring the art gallery and exhibits. We got lunch and visited 10 Corso Como, which has a cafe, shop and art gallery. Of course we HAD to explore the oldest working mall in Milano, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which is stunning. We were excited to see a Marchesi in the shopping mall, so of course we had to get a coffee and gelato for energy! Next was the UJ OH runway show. More long lines of course! Afterwards, we finally got to go to the top of the Duomo!! What an incredible building it is! We took a moment to go to the Azzedine Alaia Couture Sculpture exhibit which, of course, was in a palazzo! Our last show of MFW was Francesca Liberatore. Both of these shows were at Palazzo Reale which is in Piazza Del Duomo. Our last dinner was at Carlo E Camilla. It was absolutely lovely and delicious & we got the vegetarian tasting menu. http://giannicoofficial.com https://www.lautrechose.com/it/ https://www.lilmilan.com http://jimmychoo.com http://cfgoldman.com http://chloegosselin.com http://www.tods.com/en_ww/ https://www.piazzasempione.com/fr_en/ https://www.swarovski.com/en-US/ http://tizianoguardini.com http://giuseppezanotti.com http://ilsalumaiodimontenapoleone.it http://fondazioneprada.org http://www.10corsocomo.com https://www.pasticceriamarchesi.com/en.html http://www.ujoh-amr.com https://www.maison-alaia.com/fr https://www.francescaliberatore.it http://www.carloecamillainsegheria.it/?l=en Interview with Chelsea Goldman of CF.

Day 1-3 LFW: The Style That Binds Us Takes Over London Fashion Week
 
11:50
The Style That Binds Us team heads to London Fashion Week! We are so glad to have our The Organic Pharmacy Travel Kits, which are absolutely perfect for our trip!! We didn't sleep too well on the plane, so we were definitely feeling the jet lag the first day. First, we started with lunch at St Leonards in Shoreditch. In order to get prepped for LFW starting the next day, we were in serious need of a manicure. We went to Nails & Brows for a mani/pedi, which is where Meghan Markle used to go. For dinner, it is on to Pollen Street Social, which is a Michelin Star restaurant with vegetarian options. We had mushroom tea and lots of other delicious veggie dishes, but unfortunately, Delia got a migraine and had to end the meal early, so we didn't even get dessert! We have had some crazy experiences on our trip so far, most notably would be Alison loosing her wallet! This lead to a hectic start to a 3 week trip in Europe. Our first show was at Somerset House for Jamie Wei Huang, which was such an idyllic spot for our first runway show of the week. After that, we went to Sketch for afternoon tea. There are classical musicians playing music and everything is pink! It is absolutely delicious. Then, we are off the the Pam Hogg fashion show. For dinner that night, we eat at Kettner's Townhouse in the original Soho House. We end the day at the Katie Ann Mcguigan show. We run to the grocery store to grab breakfast items before heading to bed! Jamie Wei Huang founded the line in 2013 and worked at Alexander McQueen & Christopher Kane before founding her line. She went to Central Saint Martens. The next day began by attending the Fyodor Golan Show. Then, we had a market appointment with Gayeon Lee. We attend the Clio Peppiatt Presentation. Next, we go to The Shop at Bluebird for the Alice Archer Presentation. There is a beautiful runway of flowers and floral backdrop. Alice Archer was founded in 2014. She is from Surrey and studied under Dries Van Noten. People like Pippa Middleton & Sean Combs (P Diddy) have worn her pieces. We head to The National Portrait Gallery to see the Michael Jackson exhibit and also check out the Tate Modern. Then, we go for afternoon tea at The Corinthia Hotel. We end the night by going to the Zeynep Kartal show before dinner at Balthazar. https://stleonards.london http://nailsandbrows.me http://www.pollenstreetsocial.com https://www.somersethouse.org.uk http://jamieweihuang.com http://www.jsleelondon.com https://sketch.london https://www.pamhoggshop.com https://www.sohohouse.com/bedrooms/kettners-townhouse http://katieannmcguigan.com/ http://theorganicpharmacy.com/ https://fyodorgolan.co.uk/ https://www.alexandermcqueen.com/ http://christopherkane.com/ https://www.arts.ac.uk/colleges/central-saint-martins https://www.gayeonlee.com/ http://cliopeppiatt.co.uk/ https://www.theshopatbluebird.com/ https://www.alicearcher.co.uk/ https://www.driesvannoten.be/ https://www.npg.org.uk/ https://www.tate.org.uk/visit/tate-modern https://www.corinthia.com/en/hotels/london http://www.zeynepkartal.co.uk/ https://balthazarlondon.com/ https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Edited by Apto Media email: [email protected]

Day 4-6 during London Fashion Week is filled with runway shows, afternoon teas and presentations! We began the day at the Minki runway show. There is an Azzedine Alaia exhibit at The Design Museum which was our next stop. Alaia has dressed many inspirational women such as Greta Garbo, Grace Jones, Scarlett Johansson and Miranda Kerr. His look is sexy but not glam sexy. It is very body conscious and elegant. He was a couturier and was not on the fashion calendar. When his pieces were ready, it was time for him to show. We had a delicious lunch at The Wolseley. Make sure to make a reservation in advance since it books up quickly. The attire is smart casual. We had a delicious matcha smoothie with almond milk and dates. We had a photoshoot and went around Borough Market, Tower Bridge and the Aqua Shard. For dinner that night, we went to The Ivy for yet another scrumptious meal! Afterwards, we attended the Aadnevik catwalk show. We started the next day at The Ivy for a breakfast meeting with our business coach before the Paul Costello show. After, we went to the Matches Fashion store in Mayfair. They are mixing digital and physical in such a seamless way. There are barcodes above all the racks so you can learn about the designers and clothing. We went to the Tata Naka presentation before lunch at Chiltern Firehouse. Chiltern Firehouse is a must! They had lots of great veggie options and every bite was incredible. Next, we headed to the Victoria & Albert Museum (also known as the V&A) for the Fashioned By Nature exhibit. They have fashion exhibits which is why we love this museum so much!! Right now a hot topic is sustainability. There were pieces made using Bolt Threads materials, which is a company that harnesses proteins found in nature to create fibers and fabrics with both practical and revolutionary uses, starting with spider silk. Designers have been really creative this season with their presentations. The Edeline Lee presentation was like performance art. The models came out and dance sequences mimicked in different fashion scenes: a red carpet, runway show and afterparty. It was a body positive and had models of all shapes and sizes. For dinner, we went to Cafe L'Oscar at the newly opened hotel before the Paula Knorr presentation. The new restaurant and bar have just recently opened. There are only 39 rooms in the L'Oscar Hotel, so it'll be a nice and quite place to stay! The next day began at the PUSHbutton show. Driving around we finally got to see Buckingham Palace on our last day! Next stop was the Natasha Zinko show. That was a joyful show because the models and designer arrived in a branded Natasha Zinko bus! We saw denim on denim as a trend. Afterwards, we went to the Malene Oddershede Bach presentation. It was in a beautiful setting with a string quartet playing. The collection was extremely feminine & romantic with lots of florals. Driving around, we are able to see lots of spots (London Eye, Parliament, Tower of London, etc.) The last stop on our agenda was the Rixo London presentation before heading to Heathrow for our flight to Milan. The Rixo presentation was basically a supermarket with fresh fruit you could take! The printed dresses were absolutely beautiful and looked fabulous in that setting. http://minki-london.com https://designmuseum.org http://www.alaia.fr/en/home.html https://www.thewolseley.com http://boroughmarket.org.uk https://www.towerbridge.org.uk https://aquashard.co.uk https://www.the-ivy.co.uk http://aadnevik.com https://theivymarketgrill.com/?utm_source=G&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=G_LPM_The_Ivy_Market_Grill http://www.paulcostelloe.com https://marineserre.com http://matchesfashion.com http://uk.phaidon.com/store/photography/kate-signed-edition-9780714877624/ http://www.tatanaka.com http://www.chilternfirehouse.com https://www.vam.ac.uk https://www.stellamccartney.com/it https://erdem.com/en-eu/ https://boltthreads.com http://edelinelee.com https://www.loscar.com/dining/ http://www.paulaknorr.uk http://pushbutton.co.kr http://www.natashazinko.com http://maleneoddershedebach.com http://rixo.co.uk https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Edited by Apto Media email: [email protected]
PARIS FASHION WEEK: MEET THE DESIGNERS OF PARIS
 
13:07
Day 2 of Paris Fashion Week (PFW)! We explore Merci, which is a boutique in Paris. They have lots of tartan and plaid. Alison shops for her clients in order to bring them the latest looks from Paris. Next stop is the Aalto runway show overlooking the Seine. Mother Daughter duo, Alison & Delia have been through Fashion Month: New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and now Paris Fashion Week. We have to pinch ourselves, because this has been a lifelong dream of ours, and we cannot believe it has come true! Delia keeps adding appointments and presentations/shows to our schedule instead of letting the team members nap or eat because she wants to make sure they see everything and everyone!! In today's video, we discuss some of the designers we've met that we are excited to tell our audience and clients about. The first is Rianna + Nina. They both have a passion for vibrant prints and vintage pieces. Next stop was Schroroom Showroom to see lots of international emerging designers. We spoke with Shahar Avnet who has designed pieces for Zendaya and Beyonce. She is an artist and is from Tel Aviv, Israel. We had a market appointment with the brand Victoria/Tomas. The brand was founded in 2012, which was 4 years after they met in fashion school in Paris. They are a husband and wife couple. We went to the More Dash showroom for a meeting with Dalood, which is a brand from Tbilsi in Georgia. Faure Le Page is a brand we are over-the-moon excited about. It was founded in 1717 (making it a heritage brand) and was a gunmaker to royalty. Their iconic logo is a scale that was featured on the guns. They only have boutiques in Paris & Tokyo, so you can only see them in person if you are in that country. They have one of Marie Antoinette's guns. DM @alisonbruhn on IG in order to get your hands on one of these coveted bags! They have accessories you can add to the bags to personalize them, but they don't paint on them since they were originally a luggage brand. We went to Cafe de la Paix right by the Opera for lunch, where we got to witness some of Alison's technology issues. Maison Alma was founded by Daniela Bahamon. She is from Columbia, but lives in Paris. She makes elegant outerwear that can be worn inside as well. She picks fabrics that are traditionally used in upholstery. The colors are beautiful and soft, but dramatic. She partnered with Pierre Frey to create the prints. We sing Aux Champs Elysee while walking down the street: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7-UcdcK4AA We stop in at the Ritz Paris to grab some sparkling water and mocktails before heading to dinner. Seren London is a British brand founded by Lucia Dailey. She was looking for something to wear to the races and she loved jumpsuits (especially printed ones), but she couldn't find what she was looking for. She decided she would design silk printed jumpsuits that could be dressed up or dressed down in the mood of 1970s/disco/Slim Aarons glamour. The next stop was a market appointment with Yuliya Magdych who is a Ukrainian designer. We had a market appointment with Dondoks. The brand was founded by Carmen and Charlotte who are dancers. They wanted to create a shoe that doesn't have to be a heel, is comfortable, but looks great on the feet. One of them is from Mexico and the other from Brazil. We went to the Andrew Gn show. At the show, there was a tiny dog that had a front row seat! We had gone to the Malene Oddershede Bach presentation during LFW and had a market appointment with her in Paris. It is a feminine brand with a tomboyish twist. She is Danish born, London based. There are lots of prints and florals. They make a digital print and send it to the fabric mill to realize and add as a jacquard print on the clothing as well. We ran into JJ Martin while at the Ritz Paris getting drinks and she let us know about her SS19 presentation at the Kartell store the next day, so of course we had to stop by! Kartell is an Italian heritage furniture brand. https://www.merci-merci.com/en/ https://www.aaltointernational.com http://riannaandnina.com https://www.schroroom.com http://www.shahar-avnet.com http://victoriatomas.com http://moredash.com https://moreislove.com/designer/Dalood/ http://faurelepage.com https://www.cafedelapaix.fr/fr/ https://www.maison-alma.com http://www.pierrefrey.com https://www.ritzparis.com/en-GB https://seren-london.com http://yuliyamagdych.com https://dondoks.com http://andrewgn.com http://maleneoddershedebach.com http://ladoublej.com http://kartell.com Link to sign up with Alison Bruhn for her styling services or VIP shopping days. https://thestylethatbindsus.com/services In the video, Delia wears a top from Tos Gallery, which is a brand based in Amsterdam: https://www.tosgallery.nl https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]

Find The Right Print Size For You
 
06:39
How do you find the right print size for you? A lot of times, you will see a print when you are shopping and fall in love with it, but not consider if it is the right size/scale for you. You can always add a jacket to tone it down. Think of your face as a pattern. Notice the shape of your eyes/eyebrows and how much space are between your facial features. Delia has medium high contrast between the print and her skin, so the print can be a medium high contrast - meaning a light color for the background and a dramatic dark color for the print or vice versa. This way when people look at you and will think it is visually pleasing instead of visual noise where people will be distracted. Alison has high contrast between hair & skin and larger features. You can consider lace a print. https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]

TAKING OVER PARIS FASHION WEEK
 
07:07
DAY 1 - The Style That Binds Us Team made it to Paris Fashion Week (PFW)! After arriving from Milan Fashion Week, we head straight to Loulou for lunch. We miss Chiara Ferragni and her sister, Valentina by 1 day! We sat outside and had a stunning view of the Louvre and Tuileries Gardens. The restaurant was Italian which was funny that our first meal wasn't French food! Our meal consisted of pizza, pasta and of course, coffee!! Eating en plein air is ideal! Nap/unpacking time! Alison wears a gorgeous duster coat by Michelle Waugh to our first dinner in Paris at Le Petit Lutetia. They are not very vegetarian friendly if you are looking for a veggie spot to eat FYI! DAY 2 - We began the day by grabbing a pain au chocolat, cappuccino and d’oranges pressées at The Broken Arm before our first market appointment of Paris Fashion Week. The Broken Arm is also a boutique, which we didn't realize! The weather here feels like fall and the leaves are starting to change, which we are excited about!! Our first presentation of PFW was Rianna + Nina. Their pieces are super colorful and the designers are inspired by vintage prints. They also have one-of-a-kind pieces that are made of vintage scarves. Our first runway show of PFW was Victoria/Tomas. It was in a gorgeous setting outside with a crystal blue sky above without any clouds. The carpet was yellow and they had a live band playing. Trends we saw were white, fringe, slits, denim and lots more at this show. We stopped by Palais De Tokyo, which is a hub for emerging designers for the Dawei presentation. There was a watermelon color scheme, with lots of pinks and greens. The balcony had a fantastic view of the Eiffel Tower! We checked out the Faure Le Page store. The company was started in 1717 and was a gunmaker for royals. They even have a gun that Marie Antoinette used! They don't have an eccomerce presence and they only have stores in France and Tokyo. That means you can only see them if you are physically there!! We were so excited to discover this heritage brand and can't wait to tell you all about it! :) For dinner, we went to Bistro Volnay. We got a vegetarian plate and they also had a delicious gazpacho. https://loulou-paris.com http://michellewaugh.com https://www.the-broken-arm.com/en/ https://riannaandnina.com http://victoriatomas.com http://dawei.fr http://www.faurelepage.com https://www.bistro-volnay.fr https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Filmed & Edited by Apto Media email: [email protected]
Hosting an event with Intermix to benefit God's Love We Deliver
 
02:46
Practically just as we stepped off the plane from Paris/Fashion Month, it was time to host our first event at Intermix! The event was so that clients could come and have our resident, in-demand stylist, Alison Bruhn, help them find their perfect fall look. Proceeds from the night went to God's Love We Deliver. Before the event, we had a major GlamSquad moment where we had our hair, makeup AND nails (manicure/pedicure) done all at once! We had 5 extra people in Delia's small NYC apartment! Before the event, Alison & Delia went to Intermix to choose outfits to wear. Alison wore a Veronica Beard blazer & Delia wore a Caroline Constas dress. There was champagne and chocolates for guests to enjoy throughout the night. We had an absolute blast getting to catch up with everyone who came & found some great pieces for their fall wardrobe. A big thank you to Intermix for putting on such a lovely event!! http://intermixonline.com https://www.glwd.org https://www.glamsquad.com http://veronicabeard.com http://carolineconstas.com https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Filmed & Edited by Apto Media Videographers: Brandon Cobian & Anneliese Gartner email: [email protected]

DAY 1 MFW: FIRST DAY OF MILAN FASHION WEEK
 
08:20
We arrived in Milan for Milan Fashion Week (MFW)! We flew from Heathrow airport in London to Milan. On the plane, Alison opened her sparkling water and it of course spewed everywhere! When we arrived in Milan the line for customs was really long, so it was a great time to practice Italian, however we wanted to go to bed since it was so late. MFW is much more organized than NYFW or LFW. They have booklets with all the information you need to know. The first show was Alberto Zambelli and his collection was all white. There were even twin models walking in his show. Everyone in Milan is SO CHIC. We cannot believe it!! At every show, presentation, on the streets, in restaurants, etc. We love Milano! For lunch, we had a quick bite at Macha Cafe, which was a recommendation from our MFW booklet. We had delicious matcha drinks, avocado toast, a healthy grain bowl and matcha soft serve ice cream. Our next stop was the Arthur Arbesser show. We saw the US Vogue team there - Hamish Bowles, Virginia Smith, Nicole Phelps and Sally Singer. We've seen sheer, plaid, power suits, animal prints both on the runway and in street style. Next stop was the Alcoolique presentation. The collection was bright and colorful, with lots of sequins. After, we had some time to explore the Duomo before dinner. It is such a magnificent landmark!! For dinner, we went to Giacomo Bistro. It was absolutely delicious and the waiters were great. They even sang "Sweet Home Alabama" to us! http://albertozambelli.it https://www.machacafe.it http://arthurarbesser.com http://www.alcoolique.it http://www.giacomobistrot.com http://www.mudec.it/eng/modigliani-art-experience/ https://www.thestylethatbindsus.com/ @thestylethatbindsus @alisonbruhn @deliafolk Contact emails: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]
