Designer Suzi Roher creates fashion belt for Swarovksi

August 29, 2009

Suzi_Roher_swarovskiToronto-based fashion belt designer Suzi Roher was asked by Swarovski to design a custom one-of-a-kind belt to be showcased at Swarovski’s New York showroom and at various events throughout the United States. The showroom is located at the famous 30 Rockerfeller Center in the heart of New York City.

“Swarovski is a world leader in man-made crystal,” stated Suzi Roher. “They are recognized for their strict demand for quality and design. Being a part of this and their brand, reflects strongly on us. We jumped at the opportunity to participate.”

Suzi Roher creates her eclectic, custom, handmade belts in the belief that women appreciate an element of fantasy. Buyers are consistently impressed by the incredible range of colors and fabrications, which enables Suzi to tailor a collection to a store’s specific needs. Some styles in her collection include belts with elastic under the hardware creating versatility and adjustability, without sacrificing comfort for style.

Roher elaborates on the belt (style No.3636), “It’s a piece of jewelry that is all rhinestone with the appearance of a crown or butterfly. A dressy belt, that is self-adjusting for the waist or the hip, and makes any outfit spectacular. A definite show-stopper.”

The Suzi Roher collections have always incorporated some Swarovski crystals and the upcoming Holiday 2010 collection is no exception. Some other Suzi Roher belts (style 5119 and 5096 among others) that incorporate Swarovski crystals are for sale through suziroher.com.

Classic

Little Black dressFashion-trends are cyclic in nature, the history of women’s fashion has witnessed many trends coming in and fading away eventually. But there are some trends which not only survived beyond a certain time frame but reinvented themselves thereby becoming immortal.

These classics are not mere designs but visions drafted with utmost purity and clarity in terms of design processes.

Little black dresses

Little Black dress 01The little black dress is a semi-formal evening wear outfit with simple cuts and short length originally made popular in the 1920s by veteran designer called Coco-Chanel.

Projected by Chanel to be a long-lasting, versatile, affordable, and accessible to the widest market possible and in a neutral color.

Through this paper we would be discussing the power of this sensuous outfit after all it doesnt happens everyday in the fashion world where a designs continued ubiquity is such that many refer to it by the abbreviation LBD.

History

Little Black dress 02Wearing the color black and mourning used to be occasions going hand in hand, black a neutral among other colors was always offered a step treatment, a subject of detest, something which everyone would like to avoid coming across.

With painters painting black as evil, authors writing about the negativity associated with, it was nothing more then a symbol of fatality and casualty. For example the painting called Portrait of Madame X, by John Singer Sargent.

First the world war-1 and next the deadly Spanish flu knocking the doors, many lifes were lost in Europe, as a result women appearing in black in public became a common site. To add to that since during the Victorian and the Edwardian ages, a widow was expected to wear several stages of mourning dress for at least two years.

Deep or full mourning would require them to conceal themselves in complete black clothing with no decoration being encouraged at all for the first year. Even the fabric chosen used to be coarser and of most inferior quality possible. During the next year however they could afford wearing silk in black.

lingerie_uk_polandLondon, Milan and Paris are considered lingerie Capitals, but another, less likely, European city is giving them all a run for their money, as the Polish city of Warsaw emerges as a fast growing underwear hotspot, with increasingly sexy designs, and a credit-crunch friendly price tag.

Online lingerie retailer, Wickedelic Lingerie is one of the few UK places selling the latest Polish designs, and has seen a massive 500% increase in demand for the Eastern European lingerie over the past year, doubling the number of lines it stocks to try to meet demand.

Wickedelic Lingerie spokesperson, Nik Grant said: “The Polish lingerie we stock combines the coolness of London, the glamour of Milan, and the sexiness of Paris, and its value for money means customers are finding a recession busting way of keeping the spark alive in their relationships.”

Nik continued: “In Poland it gets pretty cold, which provides a perfect excuse for couples to spend long nights in by the fire, so it’s no surprise that their designers are producing gorgeous lingerie to keep the sparks burning bright.”
