My Style Feature: Leather Trims on Clothing
This new trend of using leather trims is really aesthetically appealing and sophisticated. Adding a more geometric and contouring to the body these leather trims are adding luxury to the simple dress. 
Leather has been gaining momentum as a key material for the past few seasons, so it’s no surprise that skins are beginning to appear in less conventional places. Last season, Phoebe Philo polished her pioneering minimalist looks for Celine by trimming pockets, hems, and seam lines in dark leather. Since then, an abundance ofleather piping and tape have appeared on the runways, giving garments dramatic outlines and a structural feeling. In neutral hues and varying widths, leather trims are being used to draw attention to construction details and to emphasize body-con silhouettes. The resulting looks are both durable and dramatic.(Style Sight 3/18/10)

Some of the things that have inspired my industry work

  • organization stock
  • merchandise at LV
  • professionalism in the workplace
  • guidance and influence from the associates and manager
FIDM class Project: Promotions
  • going out in the city and venturing out to the infamous stores that surround the middle of the city, near union square: Saks fifth avenue, nordstroms, williams and sonoma, nike, macy's to name a few
Really seeing outside the box and seeing the types of people within these stores and the visual aesthetics of store organization, and placement. Very inspiring. 
Stand up for things you believe in. make a choice on things you want to impact.
