Today is a new day. A big day. You are about to witness my first fashion show for Louis Vuitton. Words cannot express exactly how I am feeling at this moment… Above all, immense joy at being here, in the knowledge that my stylistic expression is at one with the Louis Vuitton philosophy.

“No jewelry, no handbags, no gloves, this was all about attitude and silhouette, shape and cuts”, Karl Lagerfeld gives us an inside look at his Chanel Spring 2014 Haute Couture Collection in Paris.  Cara Delevingne opened the Chanel show wearing sporty running shoes with her gorgeous couture gown – a look that is so modern, so cool and so now.

The Chanel Spring 2014 Couture collection was stunning, but it was those sporty, glittery running shoes that everyone was talking about after the show.  As Karl explains, “it gives a new modern attitude about Couture”.

The Chanel running shoes took over 30 hours to make and according to British Vogue will only be sold with the full couture outfit. A spokesperson for Chanel told British Vogue “They are only available as part of the Haute Couture look. However, we always have similar versions in our commercial and ready-to-wear collections,” meaning that you will be able to get your hands on the lust worthy trainers – or very similar – at Chanel stockists worldwide this spring.

Rosabotanica is the second fragrance in the collection, and Stewart says the scent is more “lived-in”. “It’s very much in keeping with the story, “It’s like she knows the environment so well that when the lens steps in to take a look at her, it’s like, ‘I’ve been here in my world for so long, now who’s looking at me?'”.

Rochas Spring 2014 backstage with designer Marco Zanini and find out why this, his final collection for the house of Rochas was so close to his heart.

The gorgeous look by Clé de Peau Beauté Makeup Creative Director Lucia Pieroni was hauntingly beautiful. Lucia gave the models a hollowed out eye using the new Clé de Peau Beauté Satin Eyeshadow Color No 107 and Enriched Lip Luminizer No 226 – both products come out in the USA February 2014.  Hair stylist Eugene Souleiman said he was taking a “freestyle” approach and his point of reference was British actress Helena Bonham Carter, “it’s about a rawness, a chicness and eccentricity”. 

As Marco Zanini explained backstage,  “with this job you need to give 100% of yourself – because if you are driven by passion you will go very far”.  Just a few days after this collection was presented, it was announced that Marco Zanini will take the helm at the recently revived Schiaparelli fashion house and will show his first collection at the Haute Couture in January 2014.  We can’t wait to see what comes next!

Go backstage at Rochas Spring 2014 now – featuring backstage interviews with Marco Zanini, Lucia Pieroni, Eugene Souleiman, top models Grace Van Gastel and Marina Nery.

Go backstage at Jason Wu Fall 2013 with top models Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Daphne Groeneveld and Jessica Stam and find out why Jason Wu is one of the most buzzed-about designers at New York Fashion Week. On Friday afternoon, even with threats of a severe snowstorm about to hit the city – it was still a full house at his show on the Upper East side.

As Cara Delevingne told me backstage – “this is really the show that opens NY Fashion Week…Jason is such a sweet guy, I just love doing his show – it’s always so elegant but cool”. All of the models feel the same way about Jason – they adore him because he knows how to make each one of them feel beautiful.

Jason Wu is only 30 years old. In just 6 years since launching his business,  he has become one of the most important designers working in American fashion. Originally born in Taipei, he was raised in Vancouver, Canada and he now owns a very successful design studio in New York. He is First Lady Michelle Obama’s designer of choice and made her inaugural gown, which helped put him on the international map.

For Fall 2013 Jason Wu celebrated the beauty of a woman – focusing on femininity and strength. As he explained to me “I really wanted to propose the idea of femininity as seen through my eyes – it wasn’t about a complex concept or overreaching idea – it was about the idea of a woman – feminine clothes that women want to wear“.

The collection was a knockout, full of seductive wearable pieces that have become his signature. Watch the Jason Wu Fall 2013 Fashion Video here now and discover more online at JasonWuStudio.com
