BEHIND THE FABRIC
Behind the Fabric with Anthony Latona of Flawless Fashions

DP: What is your background in the Fashion Industry and how did you come about creating Flawless?

AL: I've always had an interest in fashion and this is kind of something that just happened for me. Clothing is a great escape into the world of self-expression where your mind tells a story to someone else. Flawless started out as an idea a few years ago...an idea with a big dream attached to it. I asked myself what word describes the way a woman wants to wake up and feel everyday -- it was at that moment Flawless was born. DP: What's the vibe of the brand and mission statement? Who is the Flawless customer?

Wearable Art: Avant-Garde Pieces We Love

Avant-garde fashion is certainly not the norm. Modern, bold, and sometimes unusual; it’s an artistic take to fashion that is anything but boring. Pieces are often regarded as being unique, innovative, and abstract. Most designs in this category are not really wearable, unless you have a red carpet event to attend. Check out our top favorite avant-garde, yet totally wearable pieces- now if we can only come up with an excuse to wear them!

TRENDTASTIC
Shine On: 5 Sparkly Summer + Fall Pieces You'll Love

It’s clear that sparkles are an ever-present staple to a stylish wardrobe; as we’ve seen them take over dresses, handbags, shoes, and even cosmetics. Although they usually make their biggest debut during winter, and especially New Years Eve, they are now starting to take on more realms than one. Slowly showing up in summer accessories and numerous styles, the glittery ensemble is a definite yes for summer. However, as we saw over Fashion Week in February, they are taking all 4 seasons now as they made a very fashionable entrance in fall collections from Lanvin, to Badgley Mischka, and Blumarine as well. Instead of buying the sparkly styles for each season, we here at Glam Damn It have taken it upon ourselves to make your lives easier and your wallets a little fuller. Whether you’re a sparkle fanatic, or like it in small doses, we’ve got the sparkly goods that are perfect pieces to wear during summer, and transition into fall!

TRENDTASTIC
NYFW: Catwalk + Sidewalk Accessory Trends

Fashion Week is the week to know what is going to be treading, or should we say trending, our way in the coming seasons. The runway is of course where we all study styles and figure out what trends to prepare for. However "street chic" is just as much a part of the week as the runways. Some of the best styles and inspirations can be found on the streets of New York and fashion week just happens to be the time when all of these trend setters are baited into one single place by their common hunger for fashion. This, my friends, is the perfect opportunity for those who can't get into the shows, to find fashion forward looks!

STYLIZER
Stylizer: Movie Night for Fashion Lovers

Whether you were into kinderwhore or hypercolors, the 90’s were an exciting time in personal fashion. Not everything always made sense (ultra low rise jeans, anyone?) but it was certainly always interesting.

Naturally, the films produced during that time reflect this smorgasbord-aesthetic. Every girl remembers the first time they saw “Titanic” or “Clueless”. We remember sobbing with our friends at the end of “Cruel Intentions,” cheering on the protagonists of “Pretty Women” and “A League of Their Own,” and having our jaws drop during the adrenaline needle scene of “Pulp Fiction.” While these films are not exactly all Oscar-winners, they have stood the test of time in a different way. The reason it was so easy for us to jump right into the worlds of the characters was due to the flawless work of their costume designers.

CULINARY OCCASIONS
Local Eats at Fashion's Night Out
