Update: Guess where I am?!

Private underground pathway at my secret location. Curiosity kills the cat, but I'm still alive so.....

Happy Monday!

   So for the past 2 weeks or so, I haven't posted anything and I felt a little guilty for it! Losing control of my own work gets me really anxious to get back and start fresh. I am going to try to start posting every other day to get back into the flow of things and then start the daily posts again.

As Haute Couture week kicked off yesterday and the streets of Paris are once again filled with amazingly dressed reporters and exclusive clients, I decided to give a brief recap of last season's shows. I included every thing from the the most historically well known couture houses to the up and coming (newly admitted!) couturiers.

5 Surprising Wearable Backstage Beauty Trends Women Fear, Not Anymore!

I decided to put the Graphic Liner trend to the test, perfect for the brave enough rock this look on a day out.

Between several years of helping out backstage during runway shows, theatre productions, and concerts, I don't know which category has had the majority of models and performers fulminate about how they wish they could wear the makeup they wear on stage out on a daily basis without getting "the look." I decided to talk everyday women as I get them ready to see which backstage trends they fear most.

Quoth the Raven...

What happens when the head twirling words of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" meets high fashion? I'd say a nostalgic and quite haunting collection! A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of having my latest collection photographed by the talented and amazingly friendly, Heather Perry from Vintage Slang.


I am Jorge Alvarez, a fashion student hailing from the San Francisco Bay area. The arts, beyond Fashion, have always been one of my very big interests. I recently came to notice that designing and presenting collections wasn't enough to get my foot in the door, I had to reach my thoughts out to others and try to make connections! My passions lye way beyond just cutting and sewing a garment, they extend to beauty, exploring culture, as well as just having a damn good times with friends! This blog represents just that.
