    Many fashion design houses with pre-fall collections don’t produce a full-scale fashion show, but create a lookbook to showcase their newest pieces. As more lookbooks keep getting released on Style.com, we noticed that more designers are choosing to be more creative with their set design, with the model poses, and even manipulating the image to make them more unique such as what BCBG Max Azria did.

    While we at Worn Creative also enjoy minimalism in design, these four collections above really grabbed our attention for their uniqueness. Last spring we created a lookbook for Saint Clair Jewelry’s Resort collection and scouted a location with gorgeous graffiti art as a background. In addition to location scouting, Worn Creative’s work on this lookbook really speaks for itself on the initial ideation, casting, styling, and final lookbook creation.

  2. Don’t Blame IMG Fashion—Smaller Venues at NYFW Will Not be the End of the Blogger Profession

    by K. Juliet Otoya

    Many fashion bloggers voiced their frustrations as soon as IMG Fashion’s news broke out about reducing their venue’s capacities, and the blogger presence as  result, at fashion shows this season. When an invite solidifies one’s importance within the world of fashion, it’s imaginable to see why making fashion bloggers expendable by default would put their new titles as “full-time bloggers” in jeopardy.

    The fact is, it’s not personal.

    Video: “The Return” by Karl Lagerfeld - The Film

    In December 1953, Coco Chanel began her incredible return to center stage. The designer reopens her Haute Couture house after fifteen years of absence. The collection is welcomed by the French press with an icy silence. Only the American media supports the looks that define the rebirth of Chanel’s style. “The Return” retraces this determining period, that shaped the legend of the designer of rue Cambon forever.

    "The Return," imagined, written and directed by Karl Lagerfeld, features Geraldine Chaplin in the role of Gabrielle Chanel, Rupert Everett, Anna Mouglalis, Lady Amanda Harlech, Arielle Dombasle, Kati Nescher, Vincent Darré and Sam McKnight.

  4. Cate Underwood is the ultimate millennial. At just 23 years-old, she has become a well respected photographer and model. Additionally, she is now a citizen of the world as she travels constantly for work and leisure, from New York to her home in Ukraine, and all over the globe, while still being a devoted mother to her little girl. Did I mention she is a DJ? You can follow her on soundcloud where she uploads her sets. Cate has created a loyal following of admirers, and she does not disappoint in keeping them up to date with her blog or on instagram.

    In October of this year, Fashionista interviewed her for a spotlight as a multi-talented model. Check it out below:

    "Dressed in a slouchy leather jacket and a pair of extra-high flatforms, Kiev-native Cate Underwood has a transfixing and hustling intensity. Originally a marketing major who “wore a lot of black,” the photographer-turned-model-turned-DJ has become one of the most sought-after young fashion personalities.

    A bit of a well-dressed vagabond with bee stung lips and brooding cheekbones, Underwood splits her time working in Kiev, New York, and Milan. At only 23, she has photographed editorial spreads for Vogue Ukraine and has been profiled by Vogue Italia as a “Voguette.”

    Now, Underwood is making a name for herself in New York City. For this past New York Fashion Week, she focused her lens on the shows and after-parties in an exclusive photo diary for V Magazine. We recently sat down with Underwood to learn about how her time in the industry and how she’s a talent to be reckoned with.

    Fashionista: You are quite the multitasker. How did you start being a photographer, model, and DJ?
    Cate Underwood: I started as a photographer. First, I was just shooting people on the streets, and then I won the Harper’s Bazaar (Ukraine) Fashion Award. They were searching for new talents and it was for a young fashion photographer. I first started shooting for Harper‘s because they asked me to do editorial. Somehow then I realized I wanted to do fashion photography. [I became a model] when I was shooting test shots for one agent in Paris. So when I went to Paris I just signed a contract as a model because he said, “What are you doing behind the lens?” That’s how I started to model.

    DJing is just entertainment for me—I have loved music from an early age. It just is a hobby and it kind of nice feeling making people happy with sound.

    Where do you DJ?
    At first I started in Ukraine at random parties. Then I played during Vogue‘s Fashion Night Out in Milan. [Designer] Mauro Grifoni asked me to come to their showroom during Fashion’s Night Out.

    What brands have you shot for in Ukraine?
    Vogue Ukraine, Harper’s Bazaar Ukraine, Elle Ukraine, and L’Officiel Ukraine where I shot a cover. My first cover was for Playing Fashion, I think I was 19. Then I won the Bazaar Fashion Forward Award and then I started to shoot for other magazines. At 21, I shot my L’Officiel Ukraine cover. What I have done is not even one percent of what I want to do—you are always developing yourself.

    What have you been doing outside of Ukraine?
    I think my biggest thing for now and what I really appreciate is that Vogue Italia asked me to make a video interview for them as a Voguette. I was really scared when I went to their office for the first time—I was shaking and was like, “Oh my God, I’m in this huge Vogue Italia office!”

    When I came in I just saw a picture of me from my Instagram on a board, actually in this leather jacket with a hat, I had just come off a flight—I was so sleepy! There was this picture in their office and on it was written a couple of questions like, “Who is she?”

    What was it like covering New York Fashion Week for V Magazine?
    The idea was to represent V Magazine during NYFW and cover events in my photo diary on vmagazine.com. It wasn’t exactly a job, but a way of showing Fashion Week through my eyes, the way I see it. I realized how many amazing things I saw and people I met after I was done with the intense week.

    Where do you see your career in five years?
    I have no idea where I am going to be in five days, so it’s definitely impossible to tell what happens in five years. But I won’t stop, for sure.”
