Runway

Faith Ronning is President of Noblesville High School FIDM Fashion Club in Noblesville, Indiana. With her club, she just produced the school's first ever fashion show, and it was a huge success! Just check out the images on Twitter @nhs_fashionclub! We caught up with Faith within hours after the show to find out more...

Tell us about the fashion show: The fashion show has three sections. The first is sponsored by Maurices clothing store where about 20 models walk in bohemian spring themed outfits. The second section has garments designed and sewn by members of the Fashion Club. I actually designed two myself. There are seven designs total. The final is mens stylizing. A few of our young gentleman will present their stylized outfits on the runway.

What do you like the most about putting together a show like this? We are doing the show the day before spring break starts. Doing the bohemian theme will truly get kids feeling ready and excited for spring break. It will give the audience some ideas for looks and trends to use throughout their spring break. 

What are the challenges? We only had a few club meetings before our fashion show. We are putting it together within 3.5 hours of club meetings. It is our first ever fashion show at Noblesville, but everything is coming together beautifully. Many others, and I have been staying after and working extra time to get things done in time.

How did you get involved in Fashion Club? I am attending FIDM in the fall. My advisor (Matt Schug) told me all about the option of starting the club through FIDM. I started this club because I never had the opportunity to display or create my designs inside of high school, and I wanted to give students the opportunity to connect with one another through their love for fashion. For them to be able to share their individuality and their passion for design.

What other kinds of activities does your club do? As our club just started up this semester, we have met about five times. The last three meetings were getting the fashion show together, but we also designed our club’s t-shirts. We are planning to take a trip to Chicago and go to a fashion show and to the Art Institute museum. We are also planning to have people come in, in different fields of fashion careers and talk to the club members. We would love to go to an Indianapolis women's shelter to paint their nails, do their hair, or something along those lines. We want to get out into the community to spread the word of the FIDM Fashion Club along with helping others.

What are your career plans? I am going to FIDM this fall. I am going into Fashion Design. I would love to have my own line one day. 

"Shapes, form, color, and proportions." That's what the show notes stated for the Dsquared2 Spring 2015 runway show at Milan Fashion Week. We think the latest collection from Dean and Dan Caten is fun, wearable, and completely amazing! Check out some of our faves.

New York Fashion Week may be over but Milan Fashion Week is in full force. Check out these top looks from Gucci's Spring 2015 collection. Frida Giannini, the brand's creative director, included lots of denim and 1970s-inspired looks on the runway.

The New York Times described the looks as, "faded denim cropped sailor trousers paired with skinny ribbed knits, maroon and forest green suede belted trenches complete with rows of brass buttons, and marching band jackets with gold-braid trim."

We love.

It was all about rock 'n' roll for Tom Ford at London Fashion Week. Black, black, and more black. And models with heavy black eyeliner and rocker chic hair. We picked a few of our fave looks so you can see what we mean.

According to his show notes, Tom Ford mined his own designs from the late '90s for inspo, but we think he might have just googled "Joan Jett." (Try it, just for fun.)

All proceeds benefit the FIDM Museum Fashion Council and their planned acquisition of The Helen Larson Historic Fashion Collection. Tickets are $100 each, and can be purchased at FIDMMuseumShop.org.

If it wasn't black and white, solid white, or solid black, it was saturated color—that was how Ralph Lauren's spring 2014 collection turned up on the runway on day 8, the final day, of New York Fashion Week. Lots of '60s-inspired looks. But, my absolute fave was the drop-dead gorgeous red deep V drapey dress. Love!

Designed and produced in Los Angeles, Clover Canyon has only been around for two years and is already fashion's little sweetheart. Creative director Rozae Nichols's eclectic prints and futuristic silhouettes are inspired by world cultures, art, and travel—and reflect the fresh spirit of California. Shown on day 7 of New York Fashion Week, her spring 2014 collection is influenced by mid-century California artists and architects, from Dan Flavin to the Eameses.

I quite like the tank top that resembles nori (edible sheet of seaweed). Also, the blueprint blazer is pretty rockin'.

If you cut me open, I would bleed J.Crew. I'm not kidding. Take a look at this sampling of their spring 2014 collection, featured on day 6 (yesterday) of New York Fashion Week, and just see for yourself what I'm talking about. The Aloha tee styled with the lacey skirt? I'll take it. And the paint-splattered pants? So, so cute.

Top designers are presenting their Spring 2014 collections in NYC all week during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, September 5-12. Check back tomorrow for the final day of coverage!

Jackie Fraser-Swan presented her Emerson line for the fifth time at NYFW. (She's related to famous poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson—how cool is that.)

The designer was quoted as saying that her show was like “a group of punk rock kids crashed a private garden on the Upper East Side where the Ramones were playing a secret show.” Feminine and punk—I like the sound of that. You?
