Jenny Packham Trots the Globe for Latest Collection

ALL DRESSED IN WHITE: Jenny Packham took inspiration from three different cities — New York, Paris and Bueños Aires — for her latest bridal collection.
“I wanted to convey the mood of these different places into my collection, voluminous skirts for Paris, sensual silhouettes for Bueños Aires and glamour for New York,” she said.
The bridal collection, presented in London alongside Packham’s signature and classic styles, also marked a new direction for the veteran bridal designer. She introduced contemporary designs such as a slip-style dress and a minidress with a feathered hem. Feathers also jazzed up other styles, as in the train of an A-line dress.
Packham worked a series of capes into her collection, too. A beaded column dress featured a cape-style back. Elsewhere, she paired different styles of strapless dresses with a feather capelet. “Brides can wear this over a wedding dress, it’s an alternative to buying two separate dresses for the ceremony and for the reception,” she said, adding that the bridal market is becoming increasingly competitive.
“The bridal market is becoming more cramped with new designers and lower price points, yet the market size remains the same. However, bridal customers are also seeking different styles,” said Packham, referring to a

Jenny Fax RTW Fall 2019

Name: Jenny Fax
Main message: Taiwanese designer Shueh Jen-Fang takes fragments of childhood memories and turns them into avant-garde collections. For her latest offering she put her stamp on an innocent picnic, with sweet, pastel lace dresses paired with candy-striped blouses. True to form, nothing was quite as it seemed, with acid-washed denim skorts that were so low-waisted they put on display the granny panties attached underneath. Plush balloon dresses had boning to create voluminous, sculptural shapes, while tweed tops were shrunken into tiny, frill-adorned bandeaus. The show closed with a vinyl puffer coat with a hood that zipped all the way up to create a cartoon-like character, and a white split cape that billowed behind like a pair of angel wings.
The result: The collection struck just the right chord between the bizarre and charmingly unique, a weirdly fun take on a fairy-tale-like dreamscape.

Jenny Fax RTW Spring 2019

Name: Jenny Fax
Main message: “An ordinary girl from a small town is going to buy a flower print dress for her date. That is so romantically sad,” said Shueh Jen-Fang’s show notes. Prone to taking inspiration from childhood themes and experiences, the designer made this collection a grown-up storybook tale. Spanning clown-like jumpsuits with exaggerated shoulders to sweet floral or pastel dresses with huge pockets, it permeated humor. But there were also plenty of less innocent details, like dresses, skirts and long fringed shorts worn with buttons and zippers undone to show the navel, or satin thong underwear attached to the outside of frocks and extending all the way up to the shoulders. Tiny cropped jackets, an oversize, stonewashed denim double-breasted blazer, and mismatched sleeves played with proportion.
The result: As the last show of Tokyo’s spring fashion week, it did not disappoint, cleverly mixing together unique yet wearable pieces with more theatrical, conceptual ones.

Jenny Packham RTW Spring 2019

After showing in New York for nearly a decade, Jenny Packham came home to London to celebrate her 30 years in business. She staged two presentations at her Mount Street flagship, one for press on Sunday and a separate one for customers — and the public — was planned for Monday.
A celebrity and royal favorite with a flourishing evening, cocktail and bridal business, Packham took Jean Harlow as her inspiration for spring, conjuring a collection with lots of old Tinseltown glamour, inspired by the alluring — and hard-living — actress and Thirties Hollywood star.
“It was time to bring Jean out,” said Packham, who said her interest in Harlow was piqued when she was in Hollywood a few years ago, looking at Marilyn Monroe memorabilia. While the looks she showed on Sunday were beaded and sequined and adorned with Swarovski crystals, she said she wanted to do them all with a light touch.
The old-world glam quotient was high: A version of the silver sequin-paved wrap-front gown has already sold out on Net-a-porter, while a long, midnight blue hand-beaded dress had a plunging V neck.
At the same time, there was always a modern yet demure feel to the clothes. A frothy dress

Young Duchesses Don Jenny Packham, Ralph Lauren at Wimbledon

GAME, SET, MATCH: The Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex attended Wimbledon together for the first time on Saturday afternoon to watch the women’s singles final.
Cheers greeted the Duchesses as they took their place in the royal box to watch Serena Williams, finalist and a close friend of Meghan Markle, play Angelique Kerber. Kerber eventually won in two sets and took home the title.
Markle traded in her bateau-neck dresses for a more casual look. She wore wide-leg cream trousers with a blue and white striped shirt by Ralph Lauren. The American label is the official outfitter of the event, supplying a range of uniforms for Wimbledon.
Middleton wore a polka dot cream dress with ruched details by Jenny Packham, a go-to label of the royal, and nude suede heels.

Ahead of the finals, the two met with other players, ball girls and ball boys. The Duchess of Sussex was pictured shaking hands with junior players Whitney Osuigwe and Caty McNally from the U.S.
Williams spoke about her friendship with Markle in a post-match press conference.

Jenny Packham Puts on the Ritz

SOMETHING BLUE: Jenny Packham is back on home turf. The British designer hosted her bridal show in London for the first time, and also has plans to mark her 30 years in business with a ready-to-wear show during London Fashion Week in September.
“Things have really changed, and it actually doesn’t matter too much where you show because the images are going to be distributed online everywhere,” said the designer. “Being our 30th year, I wanted to work with my team locally, do something a bit different and keep it lively.”
The show, held at the Ritz on Piccadilly, drew inspiration from the Thirties, a period Packham said she was drawn to because it was a time of liberation for women.
She translated the spirit of the era with clean lines and simple, A-line silhouettes done in delicately embroidered lace, pleated chiffon and floral appliquéd silk.

She also injected trendier touches here and there, in the form of a white robe dress or an embroidered jumpsuit paired with a leather jacket featuring graffiti drawings.
“We have a wide range of looks that address all the different types of women we cater to, in all of the different territories we sell to,”

Shepard Fairey, Takashi Murakami, Jenny Holzer, KC Ortiz and Others Offer Street Art for This Spring’s ‘Beyond The Streets’

THE GREAT INDOORS: In May, the global movement of graffiti and street art will be in focus in “Beyond The Streets” a three-month museum like experience in Los Angeles.
Orchestrated by curator-collector-consultant Roger Gastman, the ticketed event, which opens to the public May 6, will examine mark making and rule breaking. Gastman knows a good deal about both, having caused a ruckus last week by rallying artists to boycott H&M after the Swedish chain challenged copyright protection of street art with a lawsuit in a federal court in New York. Within 24 hours of his Instagram call-to-action, the fast fashion retailer withdrew its legal complaint and pledged its support to artists.
The ties between graffiti and fashion remain strong. Balenciaga’s fall runway featured a graffiti-covered mountain, Christopher Bailey’s final Burberry collection included neon graffiti looks and Coach hooked up with the Keith Haring Foundation for a collaboration. The latter also enlisted street artists such as Crash, SUCH, WhIsBe and Tats Cru to create 13 murals for an outdoor project. Gastman said, “Fashion is constantly looking at the streets to see what the new cultures are, what the kids are clamoring towards, who has more followers now on social media and who are

Jenny Slate, Ted Danson Celebrate Bird Brooklyn’s First West Coast Store at Platform L.A.

Bird Brooklyn has finally flown the New York coop and landed in Los Angeles. The cult favorite designer boutique, which has four locations in Brooklyn, has opened its first store outside of New York at Platform, Runyon Group’s edgy new retail development in Los Angeles’ Culver City.
The 5,000-square-foot space, one of the largest in the complex, features loft-like ceilings, large plate-glass windows and blonde wood walls and shelves.
“I get to be sort of like an anchor in an exciting new development, which is so cool,” said Bird owner and founder Jen Mankins. “I never would have said yes to being in a ‘retail development’ because it sounds like you’re in a mall, but Runyon reached out to me and once I saw what it was all about, I was, like, ‘I’m in.’”
Bird joins other high-end brands such as Magasin, Janessa Leone, Freda Salvador, Aesop, Poketo, Linda Farrow and Velvet by Graham & Spencer. Among its current pop-ups are Catbird, Pop & Suki and Salt Surf, with Prism and Garmentory coming soon, and it is the creative headquarters for SoulCycle, Criteo and Technicolor.
Among the guests at the opening party were actors Jenny Slate, Mary Steenburgen and Ted Danson; singer Agnes Badoo;

Dita Von Teese and Jenny Packham Reunite for ‘The Art of the Teese’ Costumes

Jenny Packham may be one of the Duchess of Cambridge’s favorites when it comes to dressing for royal galas, but the British designer is also a standby for Dita Von Teese when the burlesque star takes it all off in her glitzy acts.
As Von Teese packs for her new tour, titled “The Art of the Teese,” premiering in Chicago today, she is including a pair of costumes courtesy of Packham. In a revamp of her act called “Lazy,” first performed at the Crazy Horse in Paris, she returns home out of the rain in a lilac blue satin twill trenchcoat and a matching beret dotted with 2,000 Swarovski crystals. Singing “There’s No Business Like Show Business” to choreography by Fatima Robinson, she trades the coat for a silk chiffon robe, slipping her arms into curled ostrich feather sleeves and reflecting light off the thousands of stones shaded crystal blue and light sapphire.
“Just a little beadwork doesn’t cut it,” Von Teese said. “The glitz is very important. Jenny really understands the amount of glitz in putting the costume over the top.”
Inspired by Jean Harlow’s soigné cover-up from “Dinner at Eight,” Von Teese said, “This is even better than that famous dressing

Jenny Holzer

Jenny Holzer

Jenny Holzer is an artist who works with new media, in locations ranging from baseball stadiums to public transportation systems. This book surveys all her installations, including her celebrated marble benches and electronic boards at the DIA Foundation New York, street and gallery based exhibitions, permanent public monuments, and works on the World Wide Web. Starting on the streets of New York with simple fly-posters, she has gone on to disseminate her truisms, slogans, memorials and poems through a variety of media. They are enunciated by an unstable register of personae be it ad man, stand up comic, torturer, victim or evangelist. The sites for her work range from T shirts and golf balls, to dazzling electronic signboards at baseball stadiums or the Internet. Her work uses language to investigate ideologies, conscious and unconscious formations about identity and experience. Her complex and poetic texts can be shocking, humorous and intriguing in content; at the same time she draws on Minimalism’s use of industrial materials, and deploys scale, movement and light to create art of great formal power and beauty. The book is part of a series of studies of important artists of the late-20th century. Each title offers a comprehensive survey of the artist’s work, providing analyses and multiple perspectives on contemporary art and its inspiration.
