Whats going on in the fashion world today October 2, 2004?

According to Vogue the reason why there is a seperate Russian fashion week is because they are fighting their hardest to make it up to the top to become like New York, Londan, Milan and Paris. Alexander Shumsky is the founder of Russian fashion week who has become a regular sighting in the other big fashion cities. Russian fashion is becoming more and more popular and see through out the states so it looks like ALexander Shumskys work has been paying off going to the other cities and watching their run ways.

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen clearly did it right last year. The Brazilian supermodel was given intensive training before turning up to wave the checkered flag at her home country's Grand Prix and she must have done something right, because she's been asked back again this year. But no matter how great the catwalker's flag-waving skills, she will receive yet more training before the race this year. Spokesman Marcio Fonseca admits that organisers are keen to avoid the fiasco of Pele's appearance in 2002, when he failed to notice Michael Schumacher crossing the line. "There's no great secret to waving the flag," race director Carlos Montagner told the Brazilian paper, Diario de S. Paulo. "It's enough to pay attention to how things are going."

You can never have enough accessories, and the latest international collections provided plenty more excuses to make every look its own with a new bag, a couple of bangles, or to die for heels. Pharrell Williams showed off his first sunglaess a result of his collaboration with Louis Vuitton, while Eley Kishmimoto and Christian Dior also made giant sunglasses the trend of the season. The Prada
beanies were some of the most talked about hats of the collections, while the MIU MIU purses had a young, good tiem girl appeal. Must have heels came in on the red carpet from YSL River Gauchie and wedged up heels from Marc by Marc Jacobs. Everybody will be piling on the bangles next season a trend started by the likes of Anna Molinari and John Galliano at Dior.

Ivy League & Prom Queen 50's Style

According to Fashion Flashback the 50's style is still rockin and "in".

It goes from the circle, pencil, peasant skirts to cashmere sweater for men and women. For day and evening for the men the look is preppy, shirts and club ties, a cardigan "letter" sweater and shirt tails out. She is pretty in in pink with cinched waist's, tea-length skirts and a sweater set. Ankle boots for men and women, worn with everything including suits for the guys. Tweed is a very hot thing this year and the tweed suit is really popular for the men worn with a plaid shirt. It isn't so much about the "big" watches anymore with the big face, and the big diamonds on them it is no all about the classic watches such as the Cartier tank watch, or the little petite skinny leather band watches. Knee-length hemlines and last but not least scarves. Everything old is new again small squares tied at the neck instead of a neckline, vintage luxury from Hermes, Van Cleef and Arpels, or a souvenir from a summer vacation spot.

In menswear this season, you'll find classic suiting in luscious fabrics and subtle yet dramatic tweeds. There's a return of standards cardigan, turtleneck, V-necks in time tested patterns including argyle, flat-front slacks, silk Ts worn under vintage-inspired striped dress shirts and relaxed leather jackets. Tony Tiemeyer said "In New York, I saw a lot of '50s' looks in the stores" for men "It's cool, but borders on the nerdy, which is cute for the modern man."

A trend toward a fashion flashback happens over, and over again when our children are our age they will be seeing their fashion repeat itself over and over again. Old will never go out because it is the new "new" of fashion.
