2019 Fashion Trends for a Changing, Diverse Market

There’s no denying that fashion is continuously evolving, but this year, the evolutions are set to take a much deeper turn. Forecasts reveal that the looks that will prevail in 2019 will no longer focus solely on the mainstream ideal of beauty. Instead, the spotlight will shift towards longstanding issues like functionality and female empowerment. The clothes will be more inclusive and diverse, too, as well as environmentally friendly. That said; there are a few of the fashion trends consumers should take note of this year.

Eco-Friendly Clothes

There’s also a good chance that faux leather will become more popular in 2019. Several top fashion designers have committed to no longer include leather or animal fur in their fashion collections, bowing to environmentally friendly garments. Insider.com reports that Meghan Markle might have played a role in boosting the popularity of environmentally friendly clothes. This is especially significant because the newly minted Duchess of Sussex frequently incorporates ethical brands into her wardrobe. When Meghan Markle wore her Reformation sundress, it increased the number of visitors to the clothing company’s website, proving how vast and effective the “Markle Effect” is—with everything she wears selling out immediately. (Reformation is an affordable and sustainable clothing company that offers clothes made from eco-friendly materials, using sustainable methods.) Other celebrities who wear sustainable fashion include Emma Watson, Jessica Alba, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Fancy flats 

While Halpern, Ashish, and David Koma had models in their recent runway shows walking in high heels and stilettos, Valentino, Simone Rocha, and Temperley London had models walking in more reasonable shoes. Refinery29.com predicts that the days of wobbly heels, along with shoes that give anyone who wears them blisters, will become a thing of the past. Practical options like sandals and high-heeled boots will come into the limelight. Designer thong-style slides will also make a fashionable return and will be especially prominent during the warmer months.

Plus-size fashion

It used to be that curvy women found it challenging to find clothes that would flatter their figure without compromising comfort and style. But in the last few years, things have taken a better turn as more commercial brands started producing collections for the plus-size market. This is a trend that can be seen at the retail site womanwithin.com, which has a wide range of plus-size clothing from top brands including Ellos and Jessica London. This year, vogue.com predicts plus-size clothing will become more daring, following the launch of Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty Valentine’s collection. The fashion line features sexy lingerie, such as sheer-patterned bralettes and revealing bodysuits that are available for all body sizes. Body shaming, it seems, is fast becoming a thing of the past. Remember, 2019 is all about body acceptance.

Clothing labels for people with disabilities

According to 2017 data from bustle.com, details how many Americans have a disability. A new survey indicates the number is higher than most people realize, more than one in eight Americans have a disability, which means roughly 40 million people in the US, have a severe impairment. Despite this number, only a handful of stores in the country produce inclusive and adaptive clothing. That said; this is changing with leading brands like Tommy Hilfiger, who launched clothing lines aimed at “balancing fashion with function and offering clothes that adapt to the wearer. ”Consumer trends analyst Stacy Bingle has also found that adaptive apparel is a growing market. “It’s part of an overall trend that we’re seeing, with consumers who have been underrepresented in the past are really getting a greater voice,” she said.

2019 will see more clothing labels adapting to the needs of individuals with disabilities. Timeless by Heather Hills is a great example, with collections that help women maintain a sense of style if they fall ill or become injured. “I think it’s really important for people that they don’t lose that sense of dignity, that sense of pride in themselves—and that they have the ability to wear something that makes them look and feel great,” explains co-founder Hayley Clarke.

Houston Ballet Puts a Unique Stamp on a Ballet Classic

Most ballet stories are quite simple in structure and tone. Complicated story lines don’t often lend themselves well to an art form where movement progresses the story. Consider Sleeping Beauty where a young princess plucks her finger, goes into a deep sleep and awakened by a kiss from a handsome prince. Or Raymonda where a Hungarian princess’ love is coveted by a dark Saracen, who is eventually defeated by the knight Jean de Brienne, leading to a marriage between the Hungarian princess and the heroic knight.

Of all ballet storylines, Sylvia has perhaps the most simplistic narrative. In huntress in Greek goddess Diana’s retinue falls in love with a handsome shepherd, Aminta. There love is slightly thwarted by evil hunter Orion; however, in the end Aminta and Sylvia marry in nuptials that are attended by the gods.

That simplicity of story worked very well when most of these classic ballets premiered, the mid-1860s–1890s; an era of refinement, feminine modesty, and a rigid class structure. Consider that all most classical ballets include the aristocracy, a chaste heroine, and for the most part, a grand and/or royal wedding.

Mask from “Sylvia”

But, we don’t currently live our lives in the shadows of the aristocracy and age-old social mores. Women are far more self-assured and independent, and many of us establish our own rules and morays.In the wake of this modern self-actualization, Houston Ballet’s Artistic Director Stanton Welch AM is taking a different approach to Sylvia. Scheduled to premier in Houston’s on February 21— New York audiences were given a sneak peak at the Guggenheim’s Works in Progress— Welch’s Sylvia goes beyond the traditional story narrative. Welch looks at three couples in the ballet instead of just the dynamic between Sylvia and the Shepherd. In his version of Sylvia, Welch brilliantly weaves the relationships between three couples, Sylvia and the Shepherd, Artemis and Orion, and Psyche and Eros. Welch even substitutes the Greek names for the well-known Roman names.

There is a big diversion from the original Sylvia in Welch’s version. Beyond the addition of two principal couples, Greek names in place of Roman names, Welch approaches his version as an attempt to empower the principal women in the cast. Gone are the traditional approaches to pas de deux that ballet audiences may be familiar with. There is a lot of women partnering their male counterparts, ladies lifting the men, and in general a much more aggressive approach to the choreography for Sylvia, Artemis, and Psyche. Though there are some lovely, gentle steps for the three heroines—that aptly expresses the Leo Delibes’ score—for the most part, Welch goes beyond delicate pizzicato movement. And instead of the corps de ballet being used as merely stage decoration or the reflection of the lead ballerina, Welch employs the corps de ballet dancers to help advance the narrative.

In Welch’s Sylvia, audiences will find more fully fleshed out characters. With Sylvia having to choose between her commitment to Artemis or her love of the Shepherd. Hmm, a woman choosing between love and work; sound familiar, of course, it does!!

Snuggly Winter Coat Trends

Baby, it’s still cold outside, and you wouldn’t want to be caught dead without winter’s most important investment, coats. Although most retailers have started to markdown their winter inventory to make room for their spring arrivals, be sure to take advantage of on-sale winter garments. No fashionista will want to miss this haul as cold temperatures continue.Whether it’s functional or chic, it’s time to let outerwear do the talking as “layering reveals personal style,” states Dairia Harvin. From high street to high end, fashionistas have taken these laid-back cozy choices to new glam heights. These are Fashion Reverie’s comfiest trends for the season.

Kaleidoscope Faux FursThis season one of the biggest trends was faux fur. Bring a little technicolor into your wardrobe with these scaled primary tones. No longer hide behind the dull colors of fall/ winter, for these eye-catching cozy coats, add a luxurious style element to brighten your season.

“A big, cozy and warm fur coat can make your outfit look very stylish [especially when paired] with matching booties”, said Vanessa Salas, fashion blogger.

Classic Trench CoatsKnown for its chic practicality, trench coats have become the go-to trend for the past couple of seasons. However, this season’s best coat is full of new outlooks ranging from playful textures, cinched waistlines, oversized menswear-inspired lengths, and sculpted tailoring.

Sport-Infused Puffers This streetwear approved trend has received the stamp of approval from every streetwear queen: Kendall Jenner, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Kylie Jenner, and many more. Chanel, Versace, and Fila reboot this ultra-cool ‘90s style with oversized branded logos, cropped silhouettes, and stylish color block designs.

Animal Print ObsessionBack and better than ever, the revival of animal print on the runway goes beyond this retro kitty print. Although everyone might be obsessed with the return of leopard print, we noticed designers embracing snakeskin, zebra pattern, and even crocodile prints. These sophisticated animal prints have taken over as a fashion staple for this fall/winter season. There are endless options to pick from since this “Great Animal Print Revival” is this fall’s biggest print takeover trend.

Teddy Bear CoatsAs the number one must- have outerwear piece of the season, no one can deny the teddy jackets popularity. This 2019 winter, designers Christian Dior, Acne, Chloe, and of course most streetwear brands have brought your favorite childhood stuffed animal to fashion. Beyond the front row, this stylish fuzzy full-length coat is hard to resist. With every brand and retailer pushing these Instagram–worthy coats, one can expect tons of options—sherpa jackets, super soft faux fur, cropped bomber jackets, and fuzzy jackets.

Protests do work

After a week of violent protest, garment manufacturers in Bangladesh have agreed to raise workers pay. Bangladeshi garment workers had been striking for over a week before they reached a worker raise, with violent protest breaking with one worker killed on January 13 and 20 strikers being injured by clashes with police outside Dhaka.

Because of low wages and trade deals made by Western countries, Bangladesh has contributed to a $30 billion industry which accounts for 80% of Bangladesh’s exports. These factors have made Bangladesh the second largest garment exporter next to China.

According Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi as told to reporters, the wage increase will raise wages across 6 of the 7 pay grades, leaving the minimum wages unchanged at 8,000 taka ($95) a month. “The discrepancies in the wage structure have been resolved by the prime minister’s intervention. We welcome the new wages. As trade unions, we have the right to protest, but that does not mean [vandalizing] factories or blocking roads. Workers will go back to work,” said Amirul Huq, who represented union leaders on the panel which met with Munshi.

Elle Fanning’s new job

It has been happening so often that we should all be used to by now. That’s right, celebrities being the face of fragrances or launching their own fragrance. The latest celeb to do so is Elle Fanning, who is the new face of Miu Miu Twist. This new fragrance from Miu Miu will launch on January 31.

Miu Miu Twist is created by Miuccia Prada and perfumer Daniela Andrier and features notes of Vert de Bergamot and Apple Blossom, with a base of Cedar Wood and an exclusive new accord, dreamed up by Andrier and named ‘The Pink Amber.’ The accord lends a woodiness to the scent, that, according to Miu Miu, is “reminiscent of burnt sugar cane cutting through crisp air.”

Elle Fanning stars in the Miu Miu Twist campaign which includes a short film. This is not Elle Fanning first association with Miu Miu, the actress walked in the brands fall 2018 show and was the face of Miu Miu’s 2018 holiday campaign.

Bebe’s new direction

Whatever happened to Bebe? Bebe was the go-to brick and mortar store for female consumers who wanted great fashion at affordable prices. In 2017, it was announced that Bebe was closing all of its stores by the end of 2017.

Well, in 2019 there appears to be a real turnaround for Bebe. Branded Online, an e-commerce provider, is partnering with Bebe to revamp their online presence.

“Cultivating a successful consumer lifestyle brand in the modern era requires not only astute vision and compelling product, but also personalized and connected shopping experiences, anchored by sophisticated technology,” said Jan Nugent, Branded Online’s chief executive officer in a recent fashionnetwork.com article. “With its intuitive design and newly implemented, data-driven framework, [Bebe] is well positioned to scale quickly and deliver exponential growth in the online channel.

The newly revamped Bebe’s direct-to-consumer site promises to feature “mobile-responsive design, intuitive user interface and [an] underlying analytics platform.” This dynamic site will facilitate consumers finding new product, get recommendations based on their interests, and purchase product from any device.

Billy Porter and Rinat Brodach: Together Re-imagining Red Carpet Masculinity

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes when a celebrity is preparing for their appearance on a major red carpet? How are they fitted for that show-stopping garment; how is the right look selected, and what is the time frame to select and fit the perfect red-carpet ensemble?

Fashion Reverie is fortunate to be able to provide to our viewers an inside look at “Pose’s” Billy Porter being styled and fitted for his red-carpet appearance at the 24th Critics’ Choice Awards. Styled and dressed by New York City–based Israeli-American fashion designer Rinat Brodach, Billy Porter made a dramatic impression on the 24th Critics’ Choice Awards’ red carpet. This has been a breakout season for veteran Broadway actor Billy Porter with several award nominations to his credit for his performance as the Ballroom MC Pray Tell in FX’s “Pose.” (Billy Porter won a 2013 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his performance as Lola in “Kinky Boots.”)

Known for her unisex designs, Rinat Brodach earned her BFA in Fashion Design from the Academy of Art University and furthered her study with a year-long scholarship at prestigious The Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne in Paris. Brodach’s designs effortlessly and selectively enhance the female figure while capturing a gentle interplay between androgyny and sensuality. Woven into each garment is Brodach’s spiritual identity that exposes the light through darkness. Brodach is committed to a philosophy of truth, integrity, and quality, and maintaining a deep connection to the human soul.

For the 24th Critics’ Choice Awards, Rinat Brodach created for Billy Porter the “Tux Jumpsuit,” exploring the dialogue between male and female energy. A reinterpretation of the traditional tuxedo, the fine silk jumpsuit features asymmetrical lines and an oversized cummerbund bow.

“Billy Porter is the definition of raw and real. Working with him has been about so much more than fashion,” says Brodach as she reflects on the process of creating this look. She continues, “He is proof that focusing on the work despite rejection and criticism is what true artistry is about. It was such a pleasure to work with him and Sam Ratelle to produce this look. I appreciate them both for trusting me on this level.”

Porter, a champion for rising talent, says, “Young designers, like Rinat, bring such incredible passion, raw talent and energy to collaborations. As an artist myself, I believe strongly in giving opportunity and exposure to new talent. And this jumpsuit is fierce!”

Editors’ Pick: Missoni Spring 2019 Campaign

Gisele Bündchen may not be slaying on the runway anymore; however, that does not mean she has retired from fashion, in spite of having a wealthy, famous quarterback husband and two kids. (Gisele retired from runway shows in 2016.)

For its summer 2019 campaign, Missoni features supermodel Gisele Bündchen and Tamino Amir Moharam Fouad. Tamino Amir Moharam Fouad is the latest sensation in the European alternative rock scene.  Gisele and Tamino are set against a backdrop of celestial bodies and galactic destinations.  This summer 2019 campaign is resplendent in the nocturnal lights of space, as the stars and planets transform into an ethereal background. Skies are as blue as a baroque theatre, desert landscapes are animated by sand dunes and craters, painted by the reflections of stars which frame Gisele and Tamino.

Gisele and Tamino are two heavenly beings that float from one celestial plane to the next. Both models pose, preen, and saunter as they are transfixed in different galaxies, reflecting and embodying the nomadic spirt of Missoni.

Dresses encrusted in ruffles and gossamer knitted mesh or iridescent ensembles in space-dyed lamé drape the body of a dancing Gisele. The meditative Tamino wears suits in loom-knit or woven fabrics with grosgrain-like textures as he contemplates the obscurity of space.

As celestial travelers who transcend space and time, Tamino and Gisele, as the modern-day Missoni man and Missoni woman, are the latest projections of where Missoni’s Creative Director Angela Missoni wants the brand to be placed. And this placement sits more comfortably with the modern consumer with garments that are easily mixed and matched and has more retail appeal without losing the brand’s signature aesthetic.

This very interesting and unique campaign was photographed in full and half plans by Harley Weir. Other than this recent campaign, Gisele Bündchen most recent affiliation with Missoni was the brand’s spring 2017 eyewear campaign.—Staff

 

Celebrity Fashion Sightings: Week of January 7, 2019

We are solidly in 2019 award season, which means great fashion from some of our favorite celebrities. Already this award season is promising to be a season of surprises and celebrities taking style risks. Julia Roberts, Billy Porter, and Indya Moore all demonstrated that at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards.

Hold tight, there are more celebrity style risks to be had. And Fashion Reverie is front and center bringing our viewers all great celebrity in our weekly Celebrity Fashion Sightings.

“Pose’s” Billy Porter continues to take risks on the red carpet in this custom-made silk “tux jumpsuit” with taffeta cummerbund bow by Rinat Brodach at the recent Critics’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles. The cummerbund bow is a bit overtop; however, Porter is known for his head turning fashion, and this ensemble is no exception.

Awkwafina gave an overtop performance in “Crazy Rich Asians,” and that performance earned her a win at the recent Critics’ Choice Awards. Awkwafina stunned on the red carpet in a bronze sequined Elisabetta Franchi spring 2019 gown with Christian Louboutin shoes and clutch.Now, who wore it better, the model or Awkwafina? Fashion Reverie believes they are neck and neck.

At the 2019 National Board of Review Awards, Awkwafina wore an Elie Saab black gown with Hueb aquamarine earrings. Though the gown is lovely, this is not a good choice for Awkwafina. Her diminutive frame does not serve this garment well.

It really did seem to be all about “Crazy Rich Asians” at the 2019 awards ceremonies this season, so far. “Crazy Rich Asians’” Constance Wu sparkled and shimmered at the 2019 National Board of Review Awards Gala in a Galvan London red sequined dress with Anabela Chan ruby earrings and a Le Vian ring.

Its only January and “If Beale Street Could Talk’s” Regina King is scoring one hit after the other on red carpets. King slam dunked again on the red carpet of National Board of Review Awards Gala in a white spring 2019 Zac Posen gown.

“The Good Place’s” D’Arcy Carden wore a long-sleeved teal Elisabetta Franchi gown with slit detail to the 24th Annual Critics’ Choice Award. Not a show stopper look for D’Arcy, next season or next red carpet, go for something a bit more eye catching.

“Eighth Grade’s” Elsie Fisher looks very mature in a M Missoni Resort 2019 jumpsuit at the 2019 New York Film Critics Circle Awards. Can you believe she is only 15 with tons of nominations this year for her role in “Eighth Grade”?

Chrissy Teigen was dripping in a million dollars of Amwaj diamonds to John Legend’s 007 themed birthday party in Los Angeles. Hmm, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, particularly when they draw attention away from the baby bump!!

Bringing up the rear this week, Gwyneth Paltrow wore Genny for her segment on “Good Morning America.”—Staff

Ballet Hispánico Gets it So Right in its First Women of Color in the Arts Panel

Are we in a post-racial era? Of course we are not. When Barack Obama was elected as the 44th President of the United States, many hoped and some cultural pundits projected that a post-racial society had arrived.

Well, we all know that was not true. Documented police killings are up, racially motivated hate crimes have escalated, and the wealth gap between whites and people of color, with African Americans disproportionately in the bottom half, has widened. And when you take a glance at the arts, though more diversity has been noted in recent years, there is still much to be done.

 Ballet Hispánico in Vicente Nebrada’s Batucada Fantastica

Ballet Hispánico, founded in 1970 by Tina Ramirez, is much more than a dance company that promotes and distills Latin culture through a variety of dance forms, Ballet Hispánico is taking on new challenges. Diálogos is Ballet Hispánico’s conversation series that explores the interconnections of the arts, social justice, and Latino cultures. Since 2016, Diálogos has given voice to issues that directly affect the Hispanic community, finding the intersectionality between the arts, culture, and politics.On January 10, Diálogos hosted the first panel discussion in its series, Women of Color in the Arts, giving voice to Afro-Latino women in the performing and curative arts experiences and struggles as women of color, available resources, and ways to bring more women of color into arts leadership positions. Hosted by Tamia Santana, founder of Brooklyn Dance Festival, and featuring panelists New York State Senator Marisol Alcantara; Ayodele Casel, Actress, Tap Dancer, Choreographer; Maria Torres, Director, Choreographer, Producer; Lauren Argentina Zelaya, Assistant Curator, Public Programs–Brooklyn Museum, the panel in the tradition of Ballet Hispanico’s passion for truth telling, bravely tackled issues of racial discrimination, sexism, funding, colorism, career stagnation, and isolation.Still, the panel discussion was not limited to the struggles of being an Afro Latina artist. The discussion also included the joys and exhilarations of celebrating the Latin experience through their work. The panelists also detailed about the importance of demonstrating that the Latin voice is not a monolithic voice, but voices that encompass many cultures and expressions. And in this ‘Year of the Woman,’ the feminine voice is an essential, nuanced voice that is primed to expand and distill Hispanic culture.

Ballet Hispánico Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro should be commended for assembling these great artists and political leaders. And for launching the series, Women of Color in the Arts. Ballet Hispánico, a role model in and for the Latino community, is inspiring creativity and social awareness in our neighborhoods and across the country by providing access to arts education.—William S.
