Monochrome..Again ?

Can you believe it’s fashion week  already ! It’s crazy how all the Fall 12′ collections are out when we haven’t seen a bit of spring yet. For Fall12′, Im guessing its monochrome all over again. Errrmm.. I am not big on black but I’m big on peplums, fur and leather accents which I’m seeing a lot with Alexander Wang , Prabal Gurung and even DVF. My favorites looks are from Jason Wu (Left) featuring a sleeveless trench coat with a huge fur trim and some leather accents . And my second favorite is Preen (Right) , If you look closely you you’ll see how they play with different fabrics and add a pretty peplum at the bottom which turns what might have been a boring black coat to a really exciting one.

So fashion Week , people get all artsy at a hope of getting shot by a sick fashion blogger . I mean everyone’s dream is to get shot by the Sartorialist and Citizen couture . Needles to say , the best style is usually shot on the streets (not seen on the runway) with all the NY Cabs outside the show tents. Now this is “Monochrome” street style thats utterly cool and worth a look at

Event : Deana Shaaban Fall’ 11 Collection Launch

Last Night was Amazing , Period . I went Over to Deana Shaaban’s Collection Launch at Theodor Boutique in Maadi. I only stayed there for half an hour and kind of Mingled with Deana Shaaban for about 15 minutes which was super inspiring . She gave me tips on starting out in the Fashion Industry . They had table Set ups and Music , Oh and the Best Part is that i got a gift bag ! That had a black and white puffy barrette ! Everybody was wearing one of them and sipping their sparkling water . The scene was cute 🙂 .

When you first get in the boutique everything is black and white and you wonder . Is it boring ? Or is it like a Monochrome trend she’s following ? Or what . I could not understand the story behind her new clothing line until i talked with her . Unfortunately, I think it is kind of unethical for me to “Review” the actual collection and it’s pieces in details here in my blog because i am supposed to write an article about it later on that will soon be published in a Magazine .

Here is her facebook Group : http://www.facebook.com/pages/Deana-Shaaban/128807787196945

And i have her Number if any of you would like to connect with her for any reason ! 🙂 Obviously Fashion Related
