Racing Fashion Herve Curves

Hugging your Herve Curves.

Herve Leger dresses have been in much debate over the past few years when it comes to the rules of Racing Fashion Dress Standards. No Matter what when you wear Herve Leger you have to have body confidence and they do make you feel fantastic when you wear them.

There are a few Herve Leger rules when at the track. Opt to keep cleavage to a minimum, so dont opt for a halter, go for a capped Sleeve.

Herve Leger long sleeve can also look fabulous, and a great option for chilly Winter racing with 'Oh, so Duchess of Cambridge', Opaque tights. The wide neckline option will look stunning with long drop earrings and statement hat.

Keep the neckline clear so attention draws up to the hat.

Now that our killer curves are hitting the fashion high notes, Herve Curves are now acceptable in Racing Fashion, just don't look like you are hitting a Hollywood Nightclub.

 

When wearing Herve Leger, watch your intake of drinks, because they are hard going to the bathroom and getting the dress in the right place.  Also, with Herve, alla Miranda Kerr, it is how you stand in the dress.  These dresses can make you or break you.  Fabulous when worn in the right way and context, a disaster when the nightclub ends up at the track.

Try and keep away from the sequin or shimmer numbers at the track of even during the day.  In the above, not only do they have the shading to bring out your curves, but hair up gives a lovely clean line, again drawing eyes up to the hat.  Great Balance of Waist, then a statement head piece so you do not look to waif like.

Multi Colour,Strapless and cleavage are steer away from during day and race track.

 
Racing Fashion 2012 Trends, Spring Racing Carnival

This year Spring Racing Carnival Trends will be attention to the cut, fabric and clever design.  Remember, it is all about having curves in all the right places.  With these selection you can see that even when there is no waist, that attention is brought to the centre by amazing print such as Alexander McQueen (above).

Although everyone has been peplum mad, either go crazy with it, as it is well on its way OUT, or keep it to a bare minimum if at all.  Instead of trying to over accentuate curves this year with the peplum or hide them.  We have embraced them and have left it to the designers to couture around our curves.

Love the Victoria Beckham Two tone blue with capped sleeve that with a stylish hat and shoe will make a pop statement, and for the 20 somethings with fabulous legs, the shift is a fantastic now option.

Remember the balance if you have a short skirt on, and realistically leave it to youth for this look.

Fashion History, Just a Click Away

By SIMONE S. OLIVER

Today’s runways, stores and sidewalks are teeming with 20th-century fashion references, from peplums to pencil skirts. And for this reason, a collaboration between two of New York City’s cultural institutions could not be better timed. After two years of planning, the Picture Collection of the New York Public Library and the Special Collections & FIT Archives of the Fashion Institute of Technology Library have recently started a digital archive of fashion drawings and sketches by André Fashion Studios. The collection, André Studios 1930-1941: Fashion Drawings & Sketches in the Collections of the Fashion Institute of Technology and the New York Public Library, includes more than 5,000 original drawings.

In the 1930s, André Fashion Studios operated as a subscription-based sketch firm in the garment district. It sold fashion drawings to manufacturers in the United States and Canada to aid production, and over time, the library and F.I.T. ended up with separate parts of the studio’s work. The materials have been in the library’s collection since the mid-90s and were put into circulation in the early 2000s.

Years later, Susan Chute, the former supervising librarian of the Mid-Manhattan Library Picture Collection, realized that more drawings may exist, somewhere. She reached out to compare notes with F.I.T.’s archive. Little of what both institutions had on file overlapped. It was clear that they needed to reunite, organize and digitize the firm’s drawings. “They had the fashion know-how and our tech department had the technical know-how,” said Billy Parrott, the managing librarian of the art and picture collection at the New York Public Library, who picked up where Ms. Chute left off.

The archive is straightforward and easy to browse, whether you are on an iPad or library computer. You can enlarge each image, and zoom in to analyze details. Site visitors can save, e-mail or share an image on several social sites. “It’s a one-stop shop that offers improved access,” Mr. Parrott said. He also said the catalog is most popular among movie costume designers, and then among fashion students looking to research this very limited, but influential stint on the fashion timeline.

In December, American Vogue created an online archive of its magazine issues starting in 1892. Unlike Vogue’s archive, which is for professionals and cost more than $1,500 a year, this archive is free for everyone.

“It does what Google search cannot do,” Mr. Parrott said. “The depth, quality and variety of the images is unique.”
