Pierre Balmain was "a king of French fashion"

Pierre Balmain was "a king of French fashion"

Balmain has been one of my favorites. Balmain is a fashion house that was founded by Pierre Balmain. Pierre Alexandre Claudius Balmain was a French fashion designer. Known for sophistication and elegance, he once said that "dressmaking is the architecture of movement.


In the period following World War II, Pierre Balmain was "a king of French fashion" and outfitted stars including Ava Gardner and Brigitte Bardot. After Pierre Balmain's death in 1982, the house was led by Erik Mortensen, described by Vogue as Pierre Balmain's "right hand." Oscar de la Renta led the house between 1993 and 2001. Under Pierre Balmain, Mortensen, and de la Renta, the house was known for its classic, luxurious designs.

Today, the house is led by designer Christophe Decarnin, whose vision for the house is more modern and edgier. In around 2008 and 2009, The clothing line became extremely popular both among fashion magazines, runways and celebrities. His 2010 collection was shown during Paris' Fashion Week, was said to be totally retro and brought back the glitz and glitter of the 70s disco era. The Spring/Summer 2011 collection has been heavily criticised though. Balmain has been known for strong padded shoulders.

It has been quite a while since i posted a blog. Sorry about that. I have been busy working and such. Paying my debts is really stressful but once i pay all of it, I won't be thinking about it anymore. Thats what i am doing right now. Work is priority at the moment but other than that. I'm living my life. I am pretty content right now...wait...I just came across my mind and realized that i think i am in a rut. I feel like i have settled for comfort. I don't want to feel that because there such more things to do out there. I haven't designed or made a piece for quite a long time. I love designing and making clothes. I have been sitting at home, working my ass off, partying with friends and thats it. I need something new in life.


This is what i am going to do...From now...on this moment. I'm going to start taking photos again. I love Photography. One of my favorite hobbies. I'm going to start sewing all my designs and make a portfolio for next year when i apply for fashion school in George Brown (Toronto). I'm going to find a better job and pays good money. Visit my old friends and Start of something new. I'm sorry if i am ranting right now. Have you check ZARA's Men fall collection? i love all the clothes. I want to go shopping! but i gotta watch for my expenses since i am a shopaholic. I'd buy anything when i see something i like...but yeah...sorry i am ranting again. I want this new MARC JACOBS cologne for men "BANG" smells so good. My mom was like "ew it smells like black pepper". I was like thats the point. I still love the smell. I will probably get it. I have so much cologne. I just bought this YSL L'Homme. It smells like heaven. I gotta go. Its late. I'm going to bed. Have a great thanksgiving! (Canada).

It is almost 2:30 here in Canada. I can not believe that i am still awake at this time. I have been cleaning and organizing my room. I realize that i have lacked of organizing my designs, drawing and clothes for this past couple of months. So today i got rid of all the things i don't need. I put all the clean clothes on the hangers and put all the dirty clothes on the basket! haha. I felt like i have accomplished something big in my life haha. I Piled up my drawings into one folder. I found this old Calvin Klein jean jacket. I still like it, so i customized it with studs on the pockets. After that i polished my boots and shoes. I just realized that i have so many black shoes that i own. I rarely have color shoes. Maybe 3 white pair of loafers but thats just it. I found these sandals in H&M. I love them so much. They are so comfortable.

Dear Readers and Followers,

It has been quite a while since i posted things to blog about. Due to school and work. I have been busy studying and upgrading for the course i want to take for fashion design in George Brown. Work is been pretty tight too as well. I have been working a lot. I need to save some money. Other than that. I have been pretty good. A lot of people have been asking me.
Where have i gone? How come you have not posted looks on lookbook or new blogs?. There is the answer to that. I will be back soon. More looks to come and i will start a new topic for my blog. I am going to do a little bit of street fashion in Toronto/Hamilton. I will be posting looks of people in my town and show the fashion world what Toronto and Hamilton fashionistas could offer. Thanks for all the amazing fan mails i have been getting. Thanks for supporting and hype-ing my looks. Love you all.
