“What’s happening in the fashion world?!?”
So glad you asked!
Last week, Scandinavian designers sent models strutting down the runways, debuting their Spring/Summer 2018 collections at Copenhagen Fashion Week.
According to Vogue, five brands in particular captured the effortlessly chic, fun, glamorous and eclectic style of Denmark’s finest fashionistas. Astrid Anderson Baum und Pferdgarten, Ganni, Saks Potts and Stine Goya were at the forefront of this movement highlighting the culture’s inherently uncanny way of mixing and matching different styles, patterns and colors as well as their fabulous sense of layering.
We must say, the Danish are by far the masters of pairing street style staples with high fashion couture pieces.

Just around the corner, Italian fashion house Gucci took crucial steps this week in ending the legal battle against Forever 21.
After the American retailer, who reportedly knocked off the brand’s trademark “green-red-green” and “blue-red-blue” stripes, received cease-and-desist letters from Gucci, ordering the discontinuation of several items ranging from bomber jackets to chokers and sweaters months ago, they fired back with a trademark-lawsuit against Gucci back in June.
Just look at the comparison! Gucci’s metallic bomber jacket is on the left, while Forever 21’s rendition is on the right.
However, the iconic Italian brand proved that they refuse to lose this continuing battle by firing back with two counterclaim suits for trademark infringement, trademark dilution, unfair competition, and the dismissal of the retailer’s earlier claims.
Despite Gucci’s attempts, the back-and-forth lawsuit is far from over.
Gucci’s blood-related fashion house, Versace, is making headlines this week as well after Bruno Mars finally released his music video to “Versace on the Floor.”
Both Zendaya and Bruno Mars keep it classy (as expected of the two classic entertainers) in very authentic and custom Versace ensembles. Zendaya stuns in a custom gold, plunging neckline mini-dress as Mars dons in a custom-made short sleeved silk shirt, black trousers and smoking slippers with gold Medusa emblems.
I simply cannot stop watching the video over and over again!
Bringing things back to America, the Victoria’s Secret family took a quick work-cation to Aspen, Colorado to shoot their 2017 Holiday Commercial.
Based off of the endless Instagram posts and stories, it appears as though the lingerie brand is taking an unexpected route with this season’s campaign as they traded in their classic winter wonderland aesthetic for cowgirl hats and boots, bum-less chaps as well as Colorado’s natural mountains.
13 Angels, 2 photographers, a crew of 100+, one big time director, and an $80 million ranch – no one does Holiday like Victoria's Secret does Holiday! #vsholiday17 #aspen @russelljames @michaelbay @adrianalima @alessandraambrosio @hoskelsa @josephineskriver @jeromeduran @sarasampaio @lilyaldridge @adamfranzino @insta_bobb @nikibaratta @jen_king @laisribeiro @jastookes @michellepriano @daniellepriano @fulviafarolfi @taylor_hill @angelcandices @romeestrijd @howardgoldman @diegodasilva_ @harryjoshhair @marthahunt @drewharrow @stellamaxwell @hungvanngo @cgonzalezbeauty @_virginiayoung_ Angel Bee we miss you!

I cannot wait to see Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepole, Lily Aldridge, Sara Sampaio and the rest of the gang take on the retailer’s iconic commercial.
