Hello my readers! I have BIG news for you!... Next week on Friday at Tusvanyos the SM crew will present 2 collections for YOU, also we're going to do a presentation about fashion, conflicts between women and men on this theme, also I will talk about blogging and tricks.
As a restart of the blog I want to write about the new SS13
Sport collection. The inspirations for these garments were my sad and blurry
days, which I’m having at the factory where I work as a sewer. I’m having “hard time” cuz the people are
difficult to work with. Mostly my days before lunch are about sadness, stress
and yelling. When I got the opportunity to do an eco-day sport collection, I
felt my frustration going out on my veins. I love to wear skirts all the time,
to dress differently and I had some problems at my work because of that. This
collection is like a mirror, reflects my frustration in the dresses.
basic color is grey witch shows the sadness and the non-intentions of my
personality. I added yellow and purple to reflect my character in the factory.
I do fell more open minded than my colleagues. The forms are very edgy and
geometrical because I'm protecting myself from the closed mind thinking. I
didn't use any material for the aerate part to show the woman's body and to
give a little sexuality (my boss is a good looking guy with a temper and when
he walks in each day the time stops, maybe because a lot of women have sexual
intentions or because of his charm). The whole collection is based on
characters transformed in forms.
I chose the materials for this collection I thought about functionality. I
wanted something sporty but sexy yet elegant and at the same time to express
all those moments of frustration. That’s how I got the leather-satin
combination. The important part is these garments can be used in the office
with high heels and over accessorized, or you can simply take all off, get your
bike and take a ride… that’s how this collection got the name. ;)
makeup accompanying the sports collection is a simple day look, with contoured
eyes and accentuated lips with bright and vivid colors in order to emphasize
more the sexuality in each woman.
look is a perfect match for a day out or even more, a sports event.
The hair was made by Markos Ildiko, she is a new member in the group. Ildi's opinion about the hair:
For the SS13 Sport collection I have chosen hairstyles which are feminine, casual and a little bit elegant at the same time. This collection forms are edgy and geometrical, so I made a contrast with asymmetrical and natural hairstyles which express the clothes and their sporty-elegant styles. The hairstyles don't cover their back, which gives them a non-provocative sensuality.
I hope you find the hidden message in the cloths but don’t forget to tell me your opinion about the whole look and collection… soon I will show you the other designers work. Like us on Facebook!
Hi everyone! I hope you liked our last post. Today Gina prepared for you a nice tip for make up.
Fashion show makeup usually tends to be unique and innovative, at the same time wearable as,
along the clothes, makeup will be a sought-after product. Let’s not forget that a fashion show is a
show and the makeup, fitting the garment must be spectacular as well.
Last November, the Style Mile team participated at the Extravagance Fashion Show held in Galati
with a collection inspired by the Impressionism. This was a great opportunity for learning how to
prepare for a national-wide fashion show in terms of team setup, clothes and look designs and
So, back to makeup, here are some thoughts on how to prepare for a fashion show if you are a
1. The final look on the runaway represents the work of an entire team: the designer, the
makeup artist, the hairstylist and the model. The makeup artist must present te designer’s
vision as well as the makeup trends of that time.
2. The makeup design must be prepared in advance, after viewing the clothes and knowing the
designer’s vision. It is OK to prepare several designs, test them on models or prepare some
face charts. The image below is just an example.
3. Face charts are very important because, once the look approved, the makeup artist can
write down all information on products used, their use on the face or any other special
instructions. This will be helpful as during the show, the makeup must be done quickly,
sometimes on more models.
4. Before the show begins, it is recommended to test the makeup on the catwalk, if something
does not look OK, or the designer does not like the makeup under those light, there is still
time to change the look.
5. Bear in mind that models have different skin tones and that the intense pink for the cheeks
may not look the same on each face or that you need to make up models who are wearing
a makeup from a previous presentation from which you can still preserve foundation and
mascara, for example.
6. Just before the show, refresh lipstick, or powder to combat shine and be prepared to stand
by and retouch while the models are changing clothes.
Back to the Extravagance show, we have prepared several makeup looks inspired by fairy tales like
Cinderella. Here is what we created.
Hi everyone! Holiday season is over, which means I’m back at work. I'm here to share with you my new projects and designs, which I'd like to do in 2013! This post is about my life experience in Budapest, but first I’ve got some breaking news.
Vittorio Missoni the famous fashion designer is missing!
“This kind of incident has a precedent: on January 4th 2008, another plane went missing on the same route and was never found. Weekly magazine Oggi suspects that it might have been hijacked by drug traffickers and used to deliver cocaine.
Anyone in Venezuela with any information is invited to contact the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs by calling the Crisis Unit or e-mailing the Ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please help us bring Vittorio, Maurizia and their friends home safely.” – on VOGUE
Ok, back at my stuff. My latest post in ’12 was about my kid collection and after that I went to Budapest to show my work at the ReMese contest. The program lasted for 3 days. ReMese is a community building program, where the Transylvanian and Hungarian designers unfold and share their knowledge about design. The topic for this program were tales which the designers had to incorporate in wearable kid clothes. The basic materials for the garment were recycled used textiles. The important part is that the designers had to use traditional Hungarian forms in their garment/design. For me this competition was a really big challenge. This three-day program included three separated topic for each day.

First day was the “professional day” where a lot of successful designers and bloggers talked about their career and design in general. The program was opened by Szegedi Aliz Torella the head designer/owner of the organization. She talked about the concept and philosophy of the organization. I was impressed when she talked about Hungarian traditional forms, basically costumes, which Hungarian designers incorporate in wearable high fashion garments and in the same time every piece is made out of recycled textiles. All these concepts in one piece, makes any designer take it as a challenge.
After Torellas speech came Tatai Tibor presentation. He had a really life teaching experience. He worked on a vector design project for 5 months and when he finished up the company rejected his work without paying. After all the hard work he didn’t gave up, he turned the project to a much functional and usable form. The basic inspiration for he’s project were (surprisingly) traditional Hungarian forms and tales. The vectors which he was creating were of story tellers (mostly about Hungarian history). These vectors got printed on cups, shirts, and other simple objects which were sold as souvenirs. I think Tibor's work was unique, but his story was that really got to me. In this big world of economic crises everybody tries to survive, most people just getting lazy and giving up because it’s hard.
I think that was the moment, when I realized what I want to do in 2013 as a designer and what is that I want to make it work! Right after Tibor's presentation I was so distracted about my thoughts, I couldn’t concentrate on what was following.
There was another “punch in your face” presentation, where bloggers started to talk about Hungarian fashion. They talked mostly about Budapest in general, but they emphasized how they weren’t pleased on whats on the streets or runways of that city. Hungarian fashion is the most simple and sophisticated design I've ever seen and the bloggers agree with that. They also said how shallow people are on the streets and how they don’t use colored garments. This made me thinking: is the economic crisis or the everyday routine which made them so superficial? Maybe one day I will find out. What I really loved about this presentation were the advices that I got, like: how much the media counts when you are a famous blogger or how much your blog topic changes if you’re a known advertiser, but the most important is criticism and how to choose what’s good for you.
The second day was “the competition day”. I was shocked when I found out right before the show that I had to introduce myself in front of “big” peoples/designers, but in the end went well. It was my first kid’s collection so I was paranoid about the children. It was tough, I admit it, because you had to be careful and watch everything.

When the show was over the jury analyzed all the presentations and garments. For the first time in my life I got promoted for my work. It felt good to be appreciated and I’m thankful for that.

After the show we had a little gathering party with Hungarian fashion icons and designers. It was a pleasure for me to be there and to learn from the best.
The third day was “the get together day”. We all put our portfolios on the table and talked about our life experience and the jury gave us advice about the show. You can read more here.
For me these three days changed my life literally. I’m thankful for this opportunity and for realizing exactly what I want to do in 2013 and I hope everything is going to be just fine.
More about to come in March! How was the REmese changeing program in 2010 you can read here.
