Rocking Out With Free Slurpee Day

IMG_9111

 

Found an awesome thing to do with my little buddy today. Take him to 711 for Slurpee Day. We, here at WestBornEastBred, thought it be cool to show the buddy Rocket Raccoon around Earth. He thinks we are pretty backwoods and he’s been to places better.  So why not showing the guy around. He’s on Earth til August 1st when we get to see him in person. Check the site and under the tag Geek Nation to see what he gets into here on our turf. By the way….DID YOU GET YOUR SLURPEE?????

The one thing I can say as we are about to roll into the 4th of July weekend, the weather has been outstanding. So if you get to enjoy the day before, why not set it up as a start period. We all are ready for the weekend but getting ready to grill out with friends and have a drink, makes it better. I’m saying have fun. Where I am we are having a nice warm setting for the day. But you can always feel warm inside with a great wardrobe.

No matter what, still gonna feel good

A nice day look always has to feel easy. When putting this together, we thought about a good day by the ocean. That day by the pier where you just wanna relax, maybe by the lake, or even just that day where you wanna look nice without trying to hard and the weather isn’t too hot. This look inspires that coolness without trying too hard. Don’t you think. This look was thanks to Trunk Club. Trunk Club is a great site were you can join and get clothes chosen for you by a personal stylist. They take your preferences and they take the time out to find great looks just for you. Its a pretty great company. Takes the guessing game out of finding something great.

Who says you can’t dress up for the mid day.

 

You know that point of the day where it’s still light out, yet its cool out. That may be the part of the day that is the most fun to dress for. Imagine just feeling cool. You can wear almost anything you want and enjoy the weather. It may be hot out but this is the time that could possibly have you smiling. Why not enjoy this bit of relief in the hot weather.

CFDA/Vgue Fashion Fund on Ovation Week 1

Image

 

So last night was episode 1 of “The Fashion Fund” a documentary about the CFDA Fashion Fund. We had the chance to see an inside look. The committee and former entries into the process informed us of how it felt to be apart of the process and also why the mentor/scholarship program exists. It was probably one of my favorite shows of the night. Its was laid out over an hour(which was my only moment to pull back because I feel due to all the commercials it could have been 30 minutes). We saw different types of portfolios, the table debate, where each judge talked about there favorites and they attempted to choose 10 finalist. Below is the list of the Class of 2013:

Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, Public School

Jason Jones and Mike Feldman, Parabellum

Juan Carlos Obando, Juan Carlos Obando

Marc Alary, Marc Alary

Misha Nonoo, Nonoo

Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin, TOME

Shimon Ovadia and Ariel Ovadia, Ovadia & Sons

Tim Coppens, Tim Coppens

Todd Snyder, Todd Snyder

Veronica Swanson Beard and Veronica Miele Beard, Veronica Beard

The designers of Veronica Beard are sisters in law. Public School worked for Sean John for a time. Ovadia & Sons are twins from Brooklyn. These are just a small hint at things that you will see. I can’t wait to see the studio visits, the 10 day test, and the 15 minute timer timed presentation directly to the committee. Can’t wait to see the process. Below I’ve placed the names of the committee, who goes from Anna Wintour and Jenna Lyons to the newly appointed designers of Rag and Bone.

Ken Downing, Senior VP/ Fashion Director, NEIMAN MARCUS

David Neville and Marcus Wainwright, Managing Partners, RAG & BONE

Mark Holgate, Fashion News Director, VOGUE

Jeffrey Kalinsky, President, JEFFREY and Executive Vice President, NORDSTROM

Steven Kolb, CEO, CFDA

Reed Krakoff, President, Executive Creative Director, COACH

Jenna Lyons, Executive Creative Director, J.CREW

Andrew Rosen, President and Founder, THEORY

Diane von Furstenberg, President, CFDA

Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief, VOGUE

 

“Buckle Down”- next week is Presentation day. 15 minutes to present your line, your ideal, and your aesthetic. Literally theres you, your models, the committee, and a timer that will ding and stop you. You also have to talk your business. Its a true test. Watch next week on Ovation on Wednesday at 10pm. See you there!

5 Designers to Keep an Eye Out For

Image

5. Brady Lange- With this list, I am planning on lining up designers who have struck my curiosity. Some you may know, some you may not, and some you may want to know. Its easy to assume that everyone in fashion are some of the big names. Not everyone is such. Some of the best lines are those that sneak up on you and make everyone ask “where’d you get that”. When asked those questions the pride wells up because you have the “in”.

Here I wanna profile designer Brady Lange. Like most I saw him on the commercials and information for the new Lifetime show Under the Gunn hosted by,of course, Tim Gunn(brought to us by the producers of Project Runway) . Immediately I liked his style and thought “wow whose the cute guy? But better then that, i love his clothes”. I immediately researched and became a huge fan. His website is very put together. It includes lookbooks, shopping, blog, and an about me section. He also has a Facebook page. I immediately wanted to profile him and saw him as the type of designer I wanna see making it globally.

Brady was born in Montana and attended to Art Institute of Portland, which he graduated from in 2008. He interned with Adam Arnold learning tailoring.  From what i see, he is in the process of designing for his Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. He has a great sense in design as far as using patterns. Throughout the clothes you can see an urban influence and thought to bringing a more grounded appeal to high end. I wouldn’t say that there is a similar deisgner to him, that’s why I wanted to profile him. I feel he’s one of the designers in a class thats taking what they learned and stepping out on a ledge to focus on what they truly want to do. He has three collection look books on his website. I can see that he will go far. Keep an out because I will and will be posting more to see what 2014 will bring him. Check out Brady’s first episode of Under the Gunn posted below and various links to interviews and information about Brady Lange.
