Directives West Fall 2010 Trends Fashion Show

Edited by

This feature is from the L.A. Major Markets Fashion Show. Touting contemporary and Junior trends for the upcoming season.

I’d like to let it be known that I love shopping the Juniors departments, as well as stores such as Rue 21, & Forever 21. The prices are always “pocket friendly,” and there is a wealth of items which integrate well with other wardrobe pieces.

I’m all about mixing higher and lower priced items…..for me, it makes for a well-rounded wardrobe. I used to pass up the junior stores, thinking that the pieces would be too “little girlish,” but I’ve found some great jackets and tops that I wear often. I will remain a loyal shopper!

I Hope This is a Wig!

Jess Simpson posted this photo on her Twitter yesterday, leaving us all wondering if she cut off her notorious locks. I do hope this is a wig, because if not, she will resemble Kate Gosselin more than she would probably like.

TALENT: Q&A with Shauntele, As Seen In The Women’s Mafia Fashion Show Fall/Winter 2010

Edited by

By Marcy Clark

Shauntele Richardson is one of the winners of our “Are You Runway Ready?” contest and was featured in our Fall/Winter 2010 Fashion Show at Tela Design Studio. Her line Shauntelé is deliciously feminine, luxuriously well-made, perfectly tailored and quite modern.

TALENT: Q&A with Shauntele, As Seen In The Women’s Mafia Fashion Show Fall/Winter 2010

From her first design internship at Nikka to her experience tailoring for the likes of Jessica Simpson and Judy Reyes, Shauntele has developed a style ushering in a new phase of appreciation for the female form. The lines are flattering yet concealing as she strives to highlight a woman’s very best assets. Jorge Ramon, former fashion editor of Teen People, has called her collection “newsworthy,” while women in the know, such as Ivanka Trump, are taking note of this new fashion gem.

Enjoy our Q&A with Shauntele below and contact her to order from her Spring or Fall Collections!

Q: Where did you learn to design and how has your aesthetic evolved over time?
A: That’s the first question?! Of course I think I’m expected to name
FIT or Parsons as an alma mater but the truth is that I’ve only taken
one illustration class and one sewing course. The rest is self taught
through internships, past work experience as well as guidance from
family and friends. I pick up any little fragment of knowledge,
continue collecting it and depositing in into a mental reservoir I
carry with me everyday. As I persist my aesthetic becomes more true to
the woman I see myself becoming: a wife, a mother, an entrepreneur, a
voice in the community. All of those roles are so common amongst all
women, it comes across in my silhouettes that i am designing for them
and I am confident in the direction I am headed.

TALENT: Q&A with Shauntele, As Seen In The Women’s Mafia Fashion Show Fall/Winter 2010Q: You are mostly a one woman show, how do you handle it all?
A: I have a lot of people rooting for me to make it and so willing to give of their own talents without pause. Honestly and gratitude,
coupled with an almost unwavering loyalty, has equipped me with an
unimaginable, invisible “line of credit” amongst my colleagues of the
garment district. In my earlier days, assistants doubled as models and
day jobs became a cover for my designer alter ego. I would stay
absurdly late at the office to print everything from lookbooks to
garment tags. I think the more I have to do the quicker my mind works
to make it happen, in theory anyway. Besides, I have to handle it, I’ve
got something to prove.

Q: When did you realize you could make your passion your career? Is designing in your blood?
A: When I saw someone making an awful mess of their own fashion label, I thought to myself I see what they are doing wrong and it takes less time to do it right. I began seeking out people in the fashion industry who were sincere, helpful and humble. I knew that fashion could be more
than superficial, it could be extremely intellectual and empowering. In the end all I want is for a garment to enhance a person’s mood, their appearance and their confidence. The women in my family used to make all their own clothes and still recount wonderful stories of them stepping into a dance as a trio of sisters with the best outfits in the place. The mental image of the creativity, class and fun they must’ve had is something that always keeps me inspired.

TALENT: Q&A with Shauntele, As Seen In The Women’s Mafia Fashion Show Fall/Winter 2010

Q: What energizes you? Where do you go to find new inspiration when designing a
new collection?
A: It almost never begins with a visual inspiration. First I seek out
the music. In my head the the melodies begin to suggest bodies and
colors. I later come across an artist like Tamara de Lempicka or Henri
Rosseau who appear to embody the visual aesthetic of a song or genre
I’ve recently discovered. In my teenage years I wanted to be a singer
and would always put together outfits to help the audience understand
me as an artist. Even till this day I want my appearance to give people
a clear understanding of who I am. A picture is worth a thousand words,
so why should we be afraid for people to judge us by our appearance?

Q: You are sponsored by the Garment Industry Development Corp with a space in Showroom New York, because you make your clothes in New York’s garment industry. Why do you feel it is important that the Garment
Industry remain in Manhattan?
A: Showroom New York has played a huge role in my collection over the past year. TALENT: Q&A with Shauntele, As Seen In The Women’s Mafia Fashion Show Fall/Winter 2010The
designers that make up the collective are dedicated to seeing one
another succeed and we make it happen by sharing our resources,
criticism and encouragement. It would be impossible for us to do so if
the Garment District became spread out over the 5 boroughs because
zoning laws are forcing manufacturers out. I’ve had to do a lot with
very little formal training, the pattern-makers and seamstresses who
have supported me since my eager intern days are invaluable to me. They
see my vision as well as expand it. Innovation is what happens when
ideas are thrust into the air making the atmosphere fertile for a
surprise, a movement. Right now fashion is stale, but at Showroom New
York there is so much to taste. People are looking for something new
and we are what’s new.

Q: Lastly, and please don’t be shy, what can the Women’s Mafia make happen for you?
A: As if I wasn’t already fawning over Women’s Mafia and how great your approach is to supporting new talent. First, you can get me a tape of
your awesome appearance on NBC. Second I think Women’s Mafia can help
forge a solid connection to women who’ve been seeking out the aesthetic
that Shauntele represents which is elegant with just the right bit of
sexy to get a room buzzing.

FASHION FACEOFF: Reese Witherspoon or Jessica Simpson in L’Wren Scott

FASHION FACEOFF: Reese Witherspoon or Jessica Simpson in L’Wren Scott

Reese Witherspoon wore this pink & black print dress by L’Wren Scott back in October at a launch for her new perfume with Avon, while Jessica Simpson was seen in the same dress last week on Light Night with David Letterman.

I think without a doubt Reese wins this faceoff. The dress does not flatter Jessica’s curvier frame & the chunky shoes don’t help either. I loved that Reese kept it simple with her hair, makeup, and accessories, since the print and color is bold enough.

Who did you prefer—Reese or Jessica?
