Everyone loves a good fairy tale. Whether you like the subtly, frightening Grimm fairy tales or the moral-based fairy tales of Hans Christian Anderson, fairy tales always distill great truths about society and the moral condition. And these great truths evoke memory and imagination because these stories are wrapped in the shroud of fantasy, magic, and glamour.

In this editorial Fashion Reverie examines five all-time favorite fairy tales—Cinderella, Rapunzel, The Three Little Pigs, The Emperor’s Clothes, and Little Red Riding Hood—seen through the lens of 80s street style. Fairy Tales, after all, can teach you a lot of life. And if you add in some great fashion, there is no better way to celebrate style and fantasy!!

Jeremy Carver Epitomizes Fall 2018 Style

If you haven’t watched “Empire,” you should. “Empire” is a megahit for FOX Network, starring the incomparable Taraji Henson, Jessie Smollett, and of course Terrence Howard as the maniacal “Lucious Lyons.”  Also in the mix is Jeremy Carver, who portrays a young “Lucious Lyons” in flashbacks.

While Jeremy Carver is always presenting an 80s street style on “Empire”—remember his character is 16 years old in late 80s Philadelphia—in real time Jeremy’s style is a lot more contemporary and on trend.  In this recent editorial, Jeremy demonstrates the depth and range of his personal style, witnessed at every jointure of his day.

Fashion Reverie believes he has never looked better!! Enjoy!!


The Nina Sisterhood

A great legend deserves homage and respect. And no one deserves accolades of honor and gratitude more than the late, great Nina Simone. 

No other musical artist of her generation detailed the joy, pain, struggle, and triumph of the African American experience as brilliantly as Nina Simone. In our “Nina Sisterhood” editorial, Fashion Reverie captures the beauty, depth, and poignancy of Simone’s “The Four Women” in a modern interpretation of this great work.

May Nina Simone and her genius continue to inform, inspire, and illuminate the human experience. Viva Nina!!

Night Life Unplugged

Night life in the city that never sleeps has evolved. Where some decades back, urban night life revolved around going to a flashy dance club and letting the music take your to heights unknown.

Now, New York City night life consists of intimate lounges, perching on banquettes and bar stands showing off your fabulous ensemble and luxury accessories. Whether it’s the night life of the 1980s or the current evolution, night life in urban cities and still vibrant. Let your stilettos be your guide!!

Change is not tomorrow, change and evolution has modern currency. And Fashion Reverie is prepped and primed to document this shift in consumers’ palettes. Come celebrate with us.

The Bold Season

Fall 2014 is all about making bold statements. Leave the reticence and vacillating behind. Be bold in choice of color, bold in your attitude, and bold in your decision making. Luxuriate in color palettes of orchid, hot pink, vivid red, and heather. Embrace silhouettes that encompass restrained volume with a variety of texture combinations.

Allow all these myriad points of view to enhance your personal style and bring out your inner and outer fierceness. Remember, this is not the season to be a shrinking violet. Let this bold season be your breakout season!!

Scenes D’Atelier

AltShoot (546)-featuredimage-1With Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week less than a week away, there are those seasoned industry professionals that yearn for the golden days of fashion when collections were seen by a few select editors, buyers and rich patrons. Lithe creatures would swirl and saunter in rich fabrications, evoking moods of glamour, sophistication and elegance.

That golden era is gone, but the fantasy and delicious reverie continues.  Though fashion is more global in its scope, and not the domain of a chosen few, creativity and innovation still reign supreme. And though the private spectacle of gilded ateliers may be just a memory, generations have reaped the benefit of the magic!! Viva Scenes D’Atelier!!
