On my way from Athens to NYC, I am just thinking of all the things I have to do and it all comes down to “run fast to attend” as many events as possible, or beyond possible. Numerous fashion GPS and regular invitations have been reaching my e-mailbox ever since I applied for the MB Fashion Week as Press. I calculated everything in a strict mathematical manner in order to build up my busy schedule efficiently. I tried not to deny, not to skip, not to miss events, unless it cannot be done otherwise. During my flight I kept up repeating to myself how proud of my organizational skills I am, and how well it will work. At the same time, I sense the fact that it’s an adrenaline-raising process, and a stessful, fascinating, demanding, crazy, thrilling experience for me. I have to attend more than 40 Lincoln and off-Lincoln fashion shows, parties, presentations, shootings and the rest of the events. My fashion Radar page, an online service which aggregates most of my invitations in a clean and concise schedule is rich in content and it might get richer in the next hours and days as – even last minute – I am still on some more waiting lists. My first set of ‘to dos’ is the Fashion Night Out (FNO) events. The ‘city that never sleeps’ hosts on that night a long series of events, as most stores will stay open till 11PM or even later and after that happy fashionistas and shoppers will end up in fashionable bars and hot spots celebrating Lincoln Center’s one year anniversary as NY Fashion Week’s main venue. My original plan is to hit in one night various events in Soho, Meatpacking and 5th Avenue stores! Can it be possible? Never mind… It was! I just had one of the most amazing FNOs ever! One of the hottest parties in Madison Avenue was at Fratelli Rossetti’s where everybody was dancing non-stop, drinking bubbly and posing to the camera’s. Then I ve been to Brunello Cucinelli, and I had a wonderful time next to warm sweaters and cardigans in all kinds of neutrals. Rebecca Taylor had a wonderful party in the Meatpacking district and Indashio and DKNY and Dior, Agent Provocateur and Calvin Klein and an endless series of spots in the city! Oh I love NYC!

It’s here. The September issue of US Vogue has hit the news stands.
If the cover is anything to go by, shot by the now ‘Mrs Hince’s friend and fashion photographer, Mario Testino (who was official wedding photographer for the day), the readers are in for a real treat. The pages of the magazine are doused with portraits and pictures from the most anticipated wedding since the ‘other’ Kate tied the knot – and Tellus has to say, Mossy gave Middy a run for her money.
Capturing tender moments between blushing bride and (many, many) bridesmaids, guests and delicate details that made the day, the snaps are backed up by an article by Hamish Bowles who reported on the day and who also managed to get an interview with the ‘Just Married’ model. If that wasn’t excitement enough John Galliano, one of Moss’ closest friends and now infamous (maybe for all the wrong reasons), comments in the article on the big day – which he designed the dress for, obviously.
There isn’t much more that Tellus can say on the matter – the pictures say a thousand words, and more….
Sarah Jessica Parker apparently, is no longer part of the Halston Heritage brand – a label inspired by the Halston collections seen at Studio 54 – according to writer Eve McSweeney in this months issue of US Vogue. SJP joined the label in January 2010 as the president and chief creative officer at the company, however its been speculated recently that Halston are having financial difficulties and could be sold on to another buyer.
Take a look below at some of SJP’s Halston looks, most of which were made famous by the Sex and the City movies….
What do you think is the reason behind Sarah Jessica Parker’s unexpected departure at Halston? Tellus…
At TellusFashion, it’s time to get your dirty clothes and loose change together with just half a cup of detergent and set the washing machine to just 30 degrees. Virgine magazine has picked up on the laundry inspired trend with this unusual yet creative dress made from Tide boxes worn by Valerie Avdeyeva and styled by Hissa Igarashi. This concept has been done before in 2005 when US Vogue featured Lily Donaldson, Caroline Trentini and Gemma Ward getting their weekly washing done at their local laundromat while wearing some gorgeous dresses styled by Edward Enninful . They end up causing havoc when a soap avalanche emerges and takes over the place. Paris Hilton sorted out her delicates during her visit to London in the June issue of Tatler in 2009. Washing clothes will never be the same again.

D&G took us back to George Michael’s “Choose Life” t-shirt from that Wham video that we love to hate – “Wake me up before you GO-GO”. It’s reminded me of mid-eighties London Fashion. Katharine Hamnett and her political t-shirts and Bodymap’s David Holah and Stevie Stewart. D&G definitely didn’t want people to take the collection to serious and that’s probably what the fans of the show want from them. Fun, loud and youth. The models glided down that catwalk to Madonna’s 1990 hit “Vogue” in hues of acid yellow, bright orange and highlighter pink. Not everyone’s cup of tea but they didn’t mind. There was alphabet print everywhere on long floaty dresses and tight black and white leggings. There were converse-like high-heeled sneakers and plastic charm necklaces that I could see my 15 year old sister wearing. Eighties oversized acid blazers and cropped jumpers in black and yellow, black and yellow (8). A lot of colour was splatted everywhere, even on the runaway. It’s always nice to see D&G signature chiffon floaty dresses that one day, I will buy! I love the alphabet printed blouse in dark pink, that’s something that I would consider buying. Everything else is a little too Stephen Sprouse for me but I can definitely see girls younger rocking it.

This dress could be seen on Katy Perry I bet.
Just as Paris Fashion week was kicking off to a great start, news breaks that head designer one the of the fashion house’s biggest names – Dior – is sacked from the company. Last Thursday John Galliano was accused of anti-semitic and racial abuse and these charges have now been filed according to the Telegraph. This is extremely disappointing news for avid fashion lovers like us here at TellusFashion, Galliano was a fashion master and there was no-one who could do Haute Couture quite like him. I applaud Dior however, as no-one should be given a second chance after doing such things – its truely disgusting.
Someone has got some big boots to fill – who do you think could be in the running for the job and how do you all feel about the recent events at Dior?!
For a man who has such talent and has created some of the most saught after pieces for Dior since 1996, its a big waste. Lets take a look at some of his work over the past few weeks below..

Starting with my absolute favourite from the fall runway collection 2010
Charles Anastaste showcased his latest collection this morning at London Fashion Week. I am completely in love with his designs, especially after his spring/summer collection for 2011. His Autumn/Winter collection for this year doesn’t disappoint and has a darker spin on his last collection but still shows a lot of consistency. It has a lot of the same elements as last season with princess inspired looks and a seventies vibe which have carried through brilliantly for this collection.
Did I mention that I love the shoes?! Really want to get my hands on a pair of his gorgeous, gorgeous shoes!!!

He was one of my favourites for SS11 and I really love his latest collection for next season. In my opinion he should be given more credit as a designer..

From one of last year’s most acclaimed new designers comes another fantastic collection which was inspired by Robert Polidori’s book Parcours Museologique Revisite – a book which documented the restoration of Versaille in Paris. The pieces were beautifully crafted and according to Wu were representative of the mix of the roughness of the restoration and the opulence of the previous decor in the palace. This was well conveyed with the contrast of rough texture and delicate embroidery and print.
The collection was also cleverly presented on a runway that looked like it was under some construction too – lovely! Adore Jason Wu
