Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Spring 2012

A sketch of mine from the Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Spring 2012 collection.
I was so inspired by this fabulous chic rocker style, a classy homage to the late musical icon, 
Ms. Amy Winehouse. Regardless of her life choices and excess, her music revamped the R&B/blues/jazz industry. Her voice commanded this soulful play on words and emotions that no one could deny and will never be surpassed... sorry Adele.

Saville Row

Here's UK's famous Mr. B Gentleman Rhymer at a protest in London's prestigious Saville Row protesting the tainting of a historical landmark. 

"Here's what someone wrote:
For those of you are interested; check out youtube for a documentary on why the introduction of Abercrombie and Fitch to the historical Savile Row is such a terrible thing. For those interested in knowing why, but lack the time to watch it, here's a quick tl;dw:

Within the clothing community, literally no other areas command as much respect for fine clothing as Savile Row. Kings and Emporers, celebrities and the rich, have all bought their clothing here for years. Napolean himself is still in the ledgers of some of the shops on this row. As such, the very name "Savile Row" adds prestige to clothing. A&F will cash in on this, with low quality trash that sullies everything the Row has stood for. This is not the sole problem, but rather, the expense and property tax of these buildings will continue to grow, while Savile Row tailors struggle to make ends meet. (Which should give you some indication as to the cost and expertise going into the suits, as they charge upwards of 5k for the most basic suits). To force these places out of business (unintentionally), would be a great loss, both sartorially and historically speaking."

MARCHESA Georgina Chapman

Here's sketch I did of the MARCHESA gown that the gorgeous designer Georgina Chapman wore at the 84th Academy Awards this year. She is truly an inspiration in beauty and talent.

Alrighty so here's the deal. I realized that I haven't been putting up any fashion sketches especially since graduating from FIDM and I feel my blog has been veering off from my original goal, so I've decided to zero in on my love of fashion by:

1. Posting my sketches of the latest fashions on the runway.
2. Posting inspiration photos of the catwalks and even folks on the street who have unique style.
3. Every Thursday I will post the "INSPIRATION of the WEEK."

(Don't worry I'll still be updating what's new in my HAUS of NAHRIN shop!)

ENJOY!!! :)
