I have selected 3 main fashion trends seen in the runway for Fall Winter 2008.
1.Futuristic style with a sporty hint. This trend was shown by the architectural and sculpted heels, structured wedges with cut out details, high platforms and minimalist forms. The futuristic look was reinforced by the choice of materials such as mirror and patent leathers. The sport style was perceived by the usage of material such as PVC and moiré. My favorite style is the Allessandro d’Aqua green Mary Jane stiletto that used a combination of materials and colours creating an ultramodern sporty chic look.
We could call this new trend as artsy hippie-chic look, multicultural mix style or even global fusion. The trend was seen in the floral appliqués, in the patchwork details used in handbags, clutches and sandals, in the embroidered peep toes, in the mix of material - such as leather with suede and velvet with silk. My favorite style is the Marc Jacobs’ yellow leather bootie.

Quite impressive the online campaign created by Hugo Boss to promote their Hugo perfume. The company used as a marketing tool an online graphic design contest at www.hugocreate.com that gave the well known Hugo bottle a whole new meaning. The contest gives an opportunity to new talented designers around the world to showcase their work and creativity. Hugo Boss marketers should be praise due to the great rate of public interaction and word-of-mouth generated by the contest. As a graphic designer myself, I already picked my favorite winner design from the Brazilian Carla Garofalo Tavares.

Antique Chinese graphics were the inspiration for my new label. I wanted to mix handcrafted details in a graphic that would also bring a feminine appeal to the brand. The handcrafted characteristic was given by the rough recyclable paper and the feminine appeal was shown by the Art Noveau influences. Let me know your thoughts..Tweet This Post
