The lovely slightly pregnant lass (IMG_7770a)

Run to the Sun is a cool store in Anchorage, Alaska that offers swim and resort wear as well as tanning. Every year as part of the Alaska’s Womens Show, Run to the Sun has a fashion show offering the latest fashion styles for us sun/beach deprived locals. The show is great to watch. Photographing it a bit tricky since the lighting at the Sullivan Arena is tough (for me) to shoot.

I’ve met a lot of great models through the show and hope to continue this – the women and men that Michelle uses are very classy and fun to shoot with.

FYI – the shows were in April in the past but due to scheduling conflicts the Womens Show moved to September so in 2010 we had two fashion shows. You won’t hear me complaining!

████████████ DESIGNER

Born and raised in South Korea, Son Jung Wan, majored in Industrial Craft at Sookmyung Women’s University and, after graduating, attended design school at International Mode in Seoul. In 1989, Son opened a small shop across the street from Galleria Department Store to house and sell her collection of stylish wears. Seeing how successful her store was, Galleria offered her a shop in shop only a year later and from there the Son Jung Wan brand grew. In 1993 Son earned the “Golden Needle Award” from the Korea Fashion Editor Association and in 2005, was named “Designer of the Year” by Seoul Metropolitan.

The luxurious collections designed by Son Jung Wan consist of impeccably executed separates and dresses made from the must sumptuous fabrics. With each collection, Son captures the dual nature of women and how they like to dress; at times pretty and feminine, and at other times chic, stylish and sexy.

Today, Son Jung Wan is one of Korea’s most successful designers with over US 50 million dollars in sales for 2011. Her designs are sold at boutiques located across the USA including New York City, Palm Beach and the DC Metro area as well as over 50 department stores in South Korea. Each season Son Jung Wan debuts her collection at New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and later at Who’s Next, the Parisian trade show.

If she weren’t a fashion designer, Son would have been an artist. In May 2005 she collaborated with contemporary artist Hwang for the “Tangible Sound” at TOTAL Museum of Contemporary Art. In August 2011, Son collaborated with Kira Kim, a well known Korean installation artist, for an antiques themed art installation at the Plateau Gallery in Seoul.

Son Jung Wan is a woman of many passions. She is a philanthropist, an avid traveler, a collector of art, a mother and a wife to name just a few.

████████████ DESIGNER

Born in Canton China, Vivienne Tam moved to Hong Kong when she was three year old. Her bi-cultural upbringing in the then British Colony, set the seeds for her signature East meets West aesthetic. Upon graduating from Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Vivienne moved to New York City, where she was infused with the energy and excitement of the fashion world.

In 1994, Vivienne Tam debuted her first contemporary women’s collection of Eastern inspired clothing. The following year, Tam introduced the influential “MAO” collection that triumphantly crossed over from the fashion world to the art world. In 1997, building on the momentum from “MAO”, Vivienne launched her “Buddha” Collection. Fans, editors and celebrities embraced her exotic imagery and passion for innovation. The Andy Warhol Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Museum at FIT all house pieces from these collections. In the words of curator Richard Martin, Vivienne Tam’s, “designs suggest tolerance, global acumen, and a Fourth of July faith in individual expression.” Tam possesses an “idealistic globalism that transcends politics and offers a more enchanted, peaceful world.”

This cross-cultural design talent did not go unnoticed. While Vivienne was broadening her fashion imprint with major shows, large retailers and international fame, multinational corporations began soliciting her for design collaboration. Vivienne has partnered with HP, Disney, Monster, George Jensen, and Mandarin Oriental, to name only a few. As a member of the CFDA Vivienne, has enjoyed continued celebrity and recognition for her rich legacy and forward thinking contribution to the world of fashion.

Today, Vivienne Tam is a lifestyle brand that can best be described as China Chic. The collection is available in 30 freestanding retail stores and over 100 specialty and department stores worldwide.

Official Runway Photos

████████████ DESIGNER

Mark Badgley and James Mischka have been hailed by Vogue as one of the "Top 10 American Designers" and as the darlings of the Hollywood set. The design duo has made their mark over the past two decades with glamorous, stylish and wearable evening wear and accessories.

There is a unique synergy between the talented duo, who met while studying at Parsons School of Design in New York. They share a similar aesthetic about clothes and the way people dress. Both men spent time designing for leading names – Badgley for Donna Karan; Mischka, the men’s collection for WilliWear WilliSmith – before starting their own line.

Mark and James joined forces to launch Badgley Mischka in 1988 and since the beginning Badgley Mischka has captivated the fashion press and prominent retailers around the world with their sophisticated style that caters to a younger, more modern couture customer, without forsaking women of any age. They have remained true to this design philosophy and the consistent integrity of their collections. Their timeless designs appeal to a range of fashionable women, including celebrities Madonna, Catherine Zeta Jones, Jennifer Lopez, Sharon Stone, Jennifer Garner, Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ashley Judd.

Mark and James’ designs are constructed of the finest fabrics and superior craftsmanship. There is always an element of interest, either in the silhouette or with luxurious detail. They have remained true to this design philosophy and the consistent integrity of their collections have pushed them to the forefront of fashion.

"Our style harks back to the glamorous Hollywood of the Forties" says Mischka. “The Badgley Mischka signature style is simple, streamlined and thoroughly elegant.”

"One zip and you’re glamorous!" says Badgley. “We like to keep things effortless. It’s fabulous if you can spend hours getting ready, but a woman should also be able to bring a dress to work and change there for an evening out."

Badgley Mischka is sold in the most prestigious stores in the world including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue in addition to Badgley Mischka boutiques in Beverly Hills and New York.

Antipodium at London Fashion Week
Official Runway Photos

████████████ DESIGNER

Antipodium is a London-based, contemporary women’s fashion brand with a sophisticated aesthetic
built from a confident simplicity and capricious nature that is unapologetically addictive – much like the
label’s wearers.

Worn by a fashion and art crew comprising editors and stylists, artists, DJs, photographers and the
odd Texan heiress; Antipodium enjoys a loyal following who embrace it as their unofficial uniform. Their
individuality helps inspire Creative Director, Geoffrey J. Finch’s designs and the label has struck a
chord with style obsessives with a sense of cool (and of course, humour) the world over. It’s little
wonder that high profile fans of the brand include Alexa Chung, Carey Mulligan, Beth Ditto, Susie
Bubble, Edie Campbell, Pixie Geldof, Poppy Delevigne and Lauren Laverne.

Founded by Ashe Peacock, Antipodium was originally established as a boutique and PR and
wholesale agency representing top Antipodean brands. Joined later by Finch, they spotted a gap in the
market for design-led basics and a one-off capsule collection was created to sit alongside other talent
in the store. These wardrobe staples quickly became wardrobe must-haves and with encouragement
from Liberty and British Vogue the pair decided it was time to get serious. Their debut collection was
launched at London Fashion Week in September 2006.

Antipodium is available at premium retailers internationally including Barneys, Liberty, Opening
Ceremony Japan and online at shopbop.com, asos.com, urbanoutfitters.co.uk and antipodium.com.

London Fashion Week

London Fashion Week (LFW) is one of the highest profile fashion events in the world and one of the ‘big four’ international catwalk influencers.
