The 86th Annual Academy Awards (also referred to as The Oscars) was a whirlwind of inspirational speeches, thought provoking nominees and jaw dropping fashion. Heres an recap of some of our favorites. Sound off below and let us know what you thought!
On February 23, 2014 we attended the finale event at DC Fashion Week. It was held at the Historical Society of Washington D.C. I must say this was both of our first time going and we really enjoyed seeing the different talent.
Went to Stonefish in DC the other night with some of my friends. So, I was beyond press to finally wear this top from Target. I thought my faux leather black pants would really bring out the top and the red suede pumps tied in the red in the blouse. Couldn't forget to add my red lip stick.
Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, the London-based designing duo behind PETER PILOTTO, are teaming up with Target for a bold, spring womenswear collection debuting Feb. 9, 2014. Target will feature 70 items, from bold and playful kaleidoscope prints and skirts to chic clutches and swimwear, with most items retailing for less than $60. The partnership is a big deal. Target is the US’s second-biggest retailer, behind only Wal-Mart.
Fashion collaborations are almost everywhere now, it's hard to find a retailer that hasn’t jumped on the bandwagon, but Target was responsible for starting the trend more than a decade ago. H&M, which launched its initiative shortly afterwards, can compete.
The news came as a surprise because, up until now, Topshop has been the go-to retailer of choice for emerging British designers. Aside from partnering with McQ (the younger sister brand to Alexander McQueen) in 2009, Target has never partnered with a London-based company.
So who is Peter Pilotto: The duo met in 2000 while studying at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in Antwerp, alma mater for designers including Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester. Pilotto launched the label in 2007 and De Vos joined later. The pair have a British Fashion Award under their belt, were invited to be guest designers at the Pitti W showcase in Florence and, at the last count, sold their line in 50 countries across the world in 220 stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue in New York, Liberty in London and Colette in Paris.
