The young and the creative.

Cecilia CassiniI came across this article on Style.com's fashion news feed. It's from the UK's The Independent and it discusses the way in which younger people are breaking into the fashion world. Not young models, but young designers, bloggers and the like. It starts out by describing a young fashion designer named Cecilia Cassini. I have read about her and her successes in the past, but this article was different in the fact that it talked about the entire trend of younger people becoming not only involved in fashion, but becoming leaders in the fashion world and industry. It gave more examples of other young people who had been successful too. Not only designers but bloggers and bloggers turned designers and stylists.

I found the article fascinating. And while I had heard of most of the people being discussed, I hadn't thought of how much of an impact they have begun to have on the industry. The power of the internet and other social web sites and media has helped to make their success possible in a way that might never have been imagined before. By sharing their thoughts via the web and connecting with other young people, they have made themselves very successful. And they've also made a name for themselves. Not only is this interesting, but it is inspiring. I mean, who wouldn't love to have the imagination of children and teens to help guide them?

I encourage you to read the article for yourself and perhaps look up the people that it spotlights. Even though not all of the children will be in the industry for the rest of their careers, I still think of this growth and boom of young creativity as a rising trend. And I'm not surprised at all that children have been able to make such a lasting impression on a world that values the new and next best, creative thing.


Down to business.

Success! The blog is up and running, and amandavogt.com is now in full swing, hah.

I think I should kick-start my blog with giving a quick overview of New York Fashion Week. To do this I will touch on my favorites from s/s 2011.

 Obviously, Marc Jacobs. His line was captivating and colorful. I think it was reminiscent of the glamour of the 70s, and he really captured that era well while also making it relevant. I really liked the oversized hats and all the accessories. The floral touches pulled the colors together well too. It seems like he can do no wrong!





I also fell in love with Marchesa! The dresses were absolutely gorgeous, like fine works of art. The level of craftsmanship was out of control and the effect was almost surreal. Some dresses were sculpted, others beaded and a few looked like they had been painted on. I also loved the color tones and all of the detail that went into every single piece. I seriously loved every look in the collection, but here are a few standouts.












Thirdly, I chose DVF. The use of pattern and saturated color worked so extremely well together. I truly loved the perfectly circular sunglasses and the color coordinated shoes. All of the pieces fit the models well and looked so effortless. The layering was just right, and I even enjoyed the v-neck and hood combination. Overall, the collection was very strong and well connected.












Lastly, I would have to say that Proenza Schouler would also be a highlight. Their play on bright colors (green, yellow, coral) with black overlay, texture and exposed undergarments was a hit as far as I'm concerned. I loved their jackets and skirts, but I also liked their dresses and flowing fabrics. The bib necklaces and messy-chic hair were just icing on the cake as the collection was both impeccable and unexpected.
