Fringe Benefit

In case you missed fashion week, or haven’t had time to drool over all of the upcoming trends for fall, I’ve got you covered.  One of my favorite trends I saw on the runway was fringe! It’s so fun and flirty, and gives off a romantic feel if paired with the right accessories.  Michael Kors debuted the trend in overcoats, handbags and dresses (below).  Other designers like Phillip Lim, Herve Leger, and Derek Lam also showcased the trend on their runways.  We’ve seen fringe before on the runways but what’s different about it now, is that the fringes are softer and ornamented in a delicate manner.  Be on the look out for fringe everything come this fall, whether it be accessories, garments, outerwear or detailing!

FMDS Fashion Show Judge Meredith German Featured in Nov. Bazaar

Meredith and Wendell German.

In the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar, past FMDS Fashion Show judge and up-and-coming accessories designer Meredith German is featured in the Editor’s Choice “New Accessories Designers” feature for her brand Meredith Wendell.  With her eclectic, hand-crafted belts, bags, and jewelry, Meredith German brought relevant insight as a judge (one of three) for the 2010 FMDS Fashion Show “Free the Beat.”

Now living in New York City, Meredith grew up in West Virginia and started Meredith Wendell with husband Wendell German in 2008.  The brand was selected by Bazaar to showcase its merchandise at the magazine’s first-ever Accessories Bazaar held during New York Fashion Week at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall, and as a result, was featured in the article along with the 17 other designers present at the event, including CFDA award-winner Alexis Bittar.  Bazaar claims in the article that Meredith Wendell’s “classic bags have a fresh downtown feel.”

Anthropologie To Open Three New Concept Stores reported that the boho-chic store Anthropologie, owned by Urban Outfitters Inc., will be opening three new concept stores within the year.  The first of the three stores to open is an all-accessories boutique that will feature vintage handbags and jewelry, footwear, and engagement rings in Chevy Chase, MD, about 20 minutes from Washington, D.C on Oct 29.

Manhattan will be home of the second store the label will be opening later this year, called Leifsdottir, a Finnish company specializing in “modern, feminine, and effortlessly sophisticated designs,” according to the company’s website.  The third concept store opened by Anthropolgie will be a bridal boutique geared toward the bohemian bride, and is set to open “somewhere like Texas, Nashville, or Chicago,” says.
