Tassel bracelet trio

Now that it's tank top season, we're really stepping up our arm party game, and we're starting with this Tassel Bracelet Trio from Baublebar. Obviously we adore the cute tassels (because who doesn't love a good tassel) and the colors are absolutely perfect for summer, but we especially love how Baublebar paired these three pieces together to make the most playful, festive, and fun set we've ever seen. 

Eva Chen

For months there's been speculation that Lucky magazine was on the brink of closing shop, especially after the glossy got the boot from it's home in the Conde Nast building and formed a separate company with e-commerce site Beachmint (which totally had everyone scratching their heads). Now, EIC Eva Chen has confirmed that she is leaving. The editor in chief took to Twitter last Thursday to make the announcement, saying that she will "be transitioning from the brand in the coming months." Chen also noted that it was an "intensely personal/difficult decision" and she plans to "spend some time with family." And while The Lucky Group had no further news, WWD is reporting that Lucky will be shutting down its print operations to go completely digital. Could it be that Chen is jumping ship before the whole thing sinks? Possibly. Either way, we're certain we'll see her name on another masthead soon. 

 

Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani feted 40 years in the fashion industry last week, with a celebrity-studded party, a couture show, and an opening of an Armani museum in Milan. The Armani/Silos is a 4,500 square meter museum and exhibition space with four floors, all dedicated to Armani's illustrious fashion design career (The museum will open to the public next month, and the first exhibit will showcase 800 outfits and 200 accessories!). The festivities started with a tour of the Armani/Silos space, followed by an Armani Privé couture show, and finished with a giant party. Among the stylish guests, Leonardo DiCaprio, Janet Jackson, Tina Turner, Cate Blanchett, Hilary Swank, and Chris Pine. 

 

Zac Posen

Working at Delta is about to get a whole lot more glamorous thanks to Zac Posen; the designer is creating new uniforms for the flight attendants and airport customer service agents. Delta’s ramp and ground support agents, Delta Cargo agents, and Delta TechOps employees will also receive new uniforms, however Posen isn't designing them, but will act as an advisor during the design process. The designer is taking the next few months to consult with various Delta employees to find out what they want in a uniform and what will be most functional for them, then prototypes will be made, and finally the finished product. The new uniforms are expected to be released in early 2018.

FIDM Fashion Club President at California Academy of Mathematics and Science (CAMS), Tiara Wicks shares with us her club story about making prom trend books. Her 40-member club in Carson, California, was established in October 2014 with Deborah McVay as their Fashion Club Advisor. Follow them on Facebook and read on to find out what Tiara has to say...

Recently, to help seniors and juniors prepare for prom, we hosted a prom trends workshop. We researched dresses, beauty ideas, and cute party ideas! We had all the girls put the prom research in a cute binder so everything was organized. We had a page dedicated to hair, accessories, nail art, drink DIYs, and more! Overall, the girls said it was very helpful and I wanted to share the fabulous idea with all of you.

The workshop lasted for about an hour and it was very successful. We had about 25 girls participate and they all loved it! This was my favorite workshop all year, especially because it help so many people. :)

Mazarine Ebengho, a senior and the president of Clover Park High School FIDM Fashion Club in Lakewood, Washington, has announced that they're doing a cultural fashion show, representing diverse styles, today at 6:15pm during the Art Festival at school. Woot! After you follow them on Instagram, check out what Mazarine has to say below!

I would like to share one thing about our club. We are all from different cultures, countries, and ethnicities which makes each and every one of our designs different. We have some members who are immigrants from Kenya, Korea, Congo, Mexico, Philippines, Russia, and Puerto Rico. We do our best to understand each other. We are having a cultural fashion show with diverse styles and we are really excited. 

The students donated clothing and fabrics for the fashion show. We also bought some when I went to the FIDM store in LA during a campus tour. 

We've been preparing for this fashion show since December. It takes passion, dedication, perseverance and hard work. What I like the most about the process is the fact that most members, who at the beginning of the school year could not use a sewing machine, are now sewing and creating with confidence, which is really exciting.

After putting so much time and effort, we have a sense of accomplishment. We will have eight models and twelve looks. And we even have a modeling coach, Ms. Lowe, who is working with the models! 

The challenge has been time. We meet once a week on Tuesdays. Most of the members are seniors, which makes it hard for them to be there as often as we need them to. Another challenge is we only have two sewing machines which has really slowed the process.

It is a free event opened to the school and the community. We have been promoting it on Instagram and Facebook, and also at school during lunches with posters and flyers. One thing fun about us is that we have put a lot of time working on posters. We have enjoyed doing that.

Lincoln
This Saturday and Sunday, May 2-3, the National Art Honor Society and Lincoln High School FIDM Fashion Club in San Jose, California, will be participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of Willow Glen.

As they have done for the past nine years, Lincoln is helping to organize the Luminaria Ceremony by creating beautiful Luminaria bags which are dedicated in memory and honor of participants' friends and loved ones affected by cancer. At dusk, the students will illuminate the dedicated bags with glow sticks and relay teams will walk a silent lap to honor those lost to cancer.

To help in the fundraising effort, NAHS and Lincoln High School FIDM Fashion Club are selling Luminaria bags for $10 and survivor's wish bracelets for $3 at school in Eileen's room 52 in the art wing. To donate directly to the team, visit the Relay For Life site.

The NAHS and FIDM Fashion Club officers are Sofia Arredondo and Eileen Zamora.

This week, Corona del Sol High School FIDM Fashion Club Advisor Margaret Lamb gives us a recap on her club's recent activities—from volunteer work to fashion field trips! This Tempe, Arizona, club has been on campus for over 20 years. Read on to find out what Margaret has to say about this amazing FIDM Fashion Club...

Volunteer Work
STYLE club members made mini quilts for preemie babies and donated them to the March of Dimes organization. Members also participated in the Smiles of Christmas Program at McClintock High School. Students had the opportunity to adopt an elementary school child for a day of holiday fun. Currently, the students are making “Little Dresses for Africa” sponsored by UNICEF. Their pillowcase dresses will be sent to girls in Africa.

Guest Speakers
The STYLE club has hosted guest speakers to share their expertise with the students. Toni & Guy Academy, Avalon Cosmetology, FIDM representatives, and the March of Dimes.

Fashion Field Trips
Members have participated in a number of field trip opportunities. Toni & Guy Academy hosted a seminar and Make-Over day which was super fun! We toured the Scottsdale Mall for Visual Merchandising Techniques and we went to the Herberger Theatre to see Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. Members traveled to California for a 3-day Fashion Industry Tour.

Club Activity
Members meet Mondays after school to plan and participate in activities. The leadership staff was established in the beginning of the year. Socials throughout the year are held to celebrate.

Too faced melted metal

We loved Too Face Melted Liquified Lipstick when it first came out, and now we're crazy about new Too Faced Melted Metal Liquified Lipstick. It has gorgeous metallic color that lasts forever, in a formula that goes on like a gloss but lasts like a lipstick. Plus the colors, from a punchy metallic apricot to a dramatic metallic plum, are so fun and bold. We can't wait to try all of them!
