Marc by Marc Jacobs Closes

If you haven’t heard by now then I’m sorry to have to break the news: marc by marc Jacobs is soon to be discontinued… That’s right, discontinued – finité, gone, done!  I literally am feeling the same disbelief as when my favourite make up brand took away my perfect foundation colour.

Jacobs and Robert Duffy founded the marc by marc jacobs label way back in 2001 and in doing so they provided their ever growing fan base with a more affordable range. As such, us 20 something year olds could now (somewhat) afford a piece of this classic designer to drape around our wrists.

If you’re anything like me you’l have accrued a small collection, so hold onto your items as they’ll be collectables now. Alternately it would be wise to grab some bits and pieces now, while you still can. If you’re a MMJ newbie, I’ve listened the top items you must purchase before this beauty of a brand disappear forever – click the image to discover where you can buy theses awesome pieces.

I won’t deny I am upset, as marc by marc jacobs was the closet thing I could ever have wearing a well known luxury brand with my price point, especially the quality in their leather pieces – they were well worth every penny. Although the days of marc by marc jacobs may soon be lost (but never forgotten) Marc Jacobs’ CEO Sebastian Suhl hopes merging the lines will help them to fill the gap  in the price points of the luxury and contemporary market caused by cutting the brand. I guess only time will tell if our generation will be walking about with marc by our sides…

VAMFF kicked off in style this week with the highly anticipated StageLabel cultural runway show 2015, in which designers celebrated their individual style and made their unique ‘fashion fingerprint’ in the industry. Held at the beautiful waterfront docklands the event showcased eight incredibly individual and talented emerging designers from across the globe.

Westfield Doncaster Event: Obsession 24/7 – A/W 2015 Preview

fashion obsession I was invited to Westfield Doncaster A/W 2015 preview night event. I love winter it’s my favorite season.It allows me to layer up and wear my favorite item the classic leather jacket in the colder weather. I’ve since been stuck in two summers since I went overseas so I am waiting in anticipation for winter to arrive!

The event was held in the styling suite, an exclusive room for customers to have personal styling sessions from Westfield Doncaster. I found it to be an excellent venue to hold this type of event. Throughout the styling suite there were beautiful garments spread out in rows around the room. As I looked at the garments a few caught my eye that was of course the leather garments on the rack. The collections of clothing there were very captivating and interesting a very unique type that will be sure to shine through this season coming (winter). meandkate

Kate Waterhouse & Alyce Cowell spoke about the latest upcoming trends for this season, as well questions answered by Kate herself. I also spoke to Kate during the night about up and coming trends and leather jackets!

As well we were able to have abit of fun with the outfits on display with creating our own flat lay.

From mixing bags, belts, statement necklaces as well as other accessories to make her own mix and swing on clothing to be unique rather then the usual.

I tuned into my inner 90’s grunge phase. I love this look from this era….I actually once went through a phase of watching every coming of age 90’s movie. Empire Records, Fear and 10 things I hate about you.. literally the list goes on.

I really loved watching all of these movies and this look is dedicated to that era.

These shoes I purchased in ROME ITALY are my current love. I stumbled across this epic shoe store there. It’s so different how they display their shoes on sale there. They’re in the window and you point to the ones you want in your size, without making a mess and touching them all.  Also….It was really hot that day, but winter is always on my mind!

Millicent Elizabeth : Tiffany Stuckey


photofour

Not to long ago, I became acquainted with Tiffany at the Adelaide fashion festival. We then spoke about her personal brand and from there she explained about what she did. Her brand Millicent Elizabeth is dedicated to providing classical styles for the busy modern woman.

Millicent Elizabeth is a premium Australia clothing label. Made by hand in Australia with the use of superb natural fibers. It is a unique label in a world of mass-market fashion, as garment production is limited to just 100 garments per style. It offers clients a unique opportunity to own these limited designs as once they sell out to be collectable styles.

Tiffany has built her brand on the principle of clean modern understated elegance. Her range is clean cut and exquisitely classic. This is a powerful range and classical that will never go out of fashion and very useful for everyone’s wardrobe.

“Our philosophy is based on the fundamentals that less is more harmonised with smart design which enhances the wearers natural beauty.”

ME-8957

What made you create Millicent Elizabeth Tell us your story and your brand name.

 My brand names comes from my two middle names which are named after my great-grandmothers. I started Millicent Elizabeth because I felt frustrated as a shopper and couldn’t find a modern minimalist women’s wear brand, in luxurious fabrics.


How did you get started in the industry?
I started off in Merchandising


Have you always wanted to be a fashion designer?
No, I tried a few things before fashion, jewelry design and found it took too long to get tot the end result, I’m pretty impatient, after I design something I want to see it in the flesh straight away to see if works or not.

ME-8811-2


Where did you study fashion?
TAFE SA

How do you go about sourcing your products?
I don’t source, I design, pattern make and sew it all together myself. Proudly Australian designed and made!

How long is the process of a Season collection?
it takes at least 2-3 months to put a collection together, source fabrics, designing and fitting.


ME-8882-2


What is the feeling like seeing your collection on runway?
It was a phenomenal feeling, it takes your breath away, make all the blood sweat and tears worth it.


Where is the final product made?
In my studio, in the Mill (artist hub)


What is your favorite part about being a fashion designer?

Seeing your designs on customer, make them feel beautiful confident and make the piece their own.

ME-8852

How and what gives your inspiration for each collection?
my designs are very architectonic, so I look at architecture, art, interior design and film


Who is your target market?

25- 40 year old women who love design and who love the design detail, it’s the all in the detail. I find a lot of my clients are in the design field themselves architects and interior designers.

How would you describe your personal style? Does it reflect into your designs?

I’m very minimalistic, I don’t like over embellishment, for me less is more, black is certainly my favorite colour. I love fabric but I chose texture over print.

ME-8952


What’s your current achievement with the brand that you are most proud of?

Coming runner-up at this year Emerging Designer Award at the Adelaide Fashion Festival

Who’s your inspiration/ fashion designers who you look up to?
Alexander Wang for Balenciaga, he was the one to bring back-packs in an elegant way.


And lastly, any advice to people who want to get into the industry!
My advice is learn as much as possible from others, as people are your greatest source of information.

If you want to start a label, embodied your brand you are your greatest advertisement.

Special thanks to Tiffany xx
