White gold jewellery for another type of gold [News]15/05/2013 03:31:48
white gold jewellery for another type of gold The menu is decently done with the image of Rei along the left that has all the usual highlights while a small block of clips plays in the middle that's framed by the handcuffs that are such a trademark of the film. The entire background of the menu is made up of flames from one of the scenes in the film. The menu is quick and easy to navigate and with nothing here besides the movie itself and a couple of trailers it all functions well and without problem. Philly Fashion Week showcased over twenty different collections from both ready to wear and couture fashion designers on Friday, February 22, 2013 and Saturday, February 23, 2013. The designs that graced the stage were fashion forward and produced bold statements to the guests. There was plenty of color, plays with shapes, and various textures this season at Philly Fashion Week. All is not well in his stable however as rather than paying the other wrestlers under him Shishio is pouring all the earnings the group makes into building a new house under the obsession that the act will somehow cause his wife to heal. Nami tries to convince him otherwise but Shishio isn't listening. To get money he even agrees to star with his family in a reality TV program which will document his families days-including Asami in the hospital. Siemens has dropped the sale of fashionable mobile phones under the Xelibri brand. The line has now been stopped after selling just 780,000 devices - less than 2% of Siemens' total handset sales - in 2003. The Xelibri phones had to be introduced in collections of four phones every spring and autumn, with limited quantities and distribution through fashion boutiques and department stores.. "My mom started reading to me when I was very young and as soon as I could read to myself, I always had a book in my hand," she said. "When I was your age, I used books to learn about careers I wanted to explore. I read the biographies of designers, how they got their start, their business successes and failures.". The current economic environment has only fed the collective interest in cooking; more and more people are eating at home, as evidenced by the increase in cookbook sales, which are up 5 percent at a time when overall book sales have declined. While I'm as eager as anyone else for the economy to improve, I see the growing interest in learning about food and the enthusiasm for home cooking -- especially since studies show that eating together improves family health and stability -- as the recessionary cloud's silver lining. I am further heartened by the increased concern about the origins of our meals -- the quality of life of the animals that provide us with sustenance, and the health and environmental ramifications of our approach to food production..
Top trends from Australian Fashion Week [News]14/05/2013 03:57:51
Top trends from Australian Fashion Week Australian Fashion Week has come to a close, and with it we have no doubt about what we'll be wearing this coming summer. While Australian designers don't particularly set the trends on the international stage, instead taking inspiration from their European counterparts (from the bright colour-blocking of Jil Sander to the minimalism of Celine), they have undoubtedly cemented the trends we saw at the latest spring-summer collections in Paris, Milan and New York for use in our own backyard. Though there were plenty of mini-trends scattered throughout the collections, like paper-bag waists, soft leather (in the form of skirts, shorts, dresses and tops), oriental inspired prints, wide pants, linen and the colour orange, there were five stand-out looks that were hard to ignore. Mile-high club While attention of the upper leg area is usually reserved for miniskirts, sky-high slits in ankle-length dresses, knee-length skirts and palazzo pants have ensured there is a new focus on our thighs this summer. This trend is great news for more mature women who want to show a bit of leg without bearing all. Colouring in Bright, block-colours were seen all over the catwalk this week, but they were also spotted on all the front-row fashion editors, proving that mixing bold, colourful separates is a trend not going anywhere fast. However, make sure you stick to one colour palette when combining your statement pieces rust, burnt orange and mustard give a strong effect when worn together, as do jewelled hues of teal, gold, and chartreuse, or if you're felling really brave go for bright colours of aqua, watermelon pink and lime. White wash Most shows this week opened with beautifully crafted white, cream and ivory pieces that reflected the minimalism and simplicity of Paris' Celine and Chloe. Although extremely difficult to keep clean, these classic pieces are an easy way to perfect effortless chic in a country famous for its cut-off denim shorts during summer. If all white is too daunting, invest in a crisp white shirt or silk cream blouse to take you through summer. Modern romance Probably the least appealing trend to a fashion realist is romance. All the ruffles, floaty shapes and lace look gorgeous on the catwalk, but what about in real life? Our designers, however, seemed to seamlessly blend modernity and romance, making it a wearable style that I'm sure we'll all fall head over heels in love with. Think ethereal chiffon skirts, fluid silk pants and dreamy free-flowing dresses perfect for any number of summer soirees. Jumpsuits The jumpsuit will continue to reign as a summer staple, however this season designers left the boho behind and embraced simple, well cut all-in-ones for a sexier, grown-up feel that will make you want to put up with their only downside the slow powder-room pit stops.

Fashion fail: Thanks to a consistently inconsistent coif which over the years has been mullet-like, center-parted, buzzed close to the head and currently appears to be inspired by the Bob's Big Boy mascot Nash's look seems to be constantly in transition, which makes his shape-shifting 'do his fashion don't.

Innovative apparel designs Gangtok, May 20 (ANI): Banking on their creative traits, women of Sikkim have emerged in the forefront of apparel designing. The credit for this could be attributed to the Directorate of Handloom and Handicraft of Sikkim for setting up an Apparel Training and Design Centre (ATDC) where young girls and women undergo extensive training in fashion designing. Apart from basic skills, the students are taught and given exposure to the apparel manufacturing technology, textile design, knitting garments, embroidery, fashion sampling, patterns and cutting, ornamental creations, sewing machine operation and apparel merchandising among others. Although this training programme is open for both men and women, it is the eves who have been more enterprising and coming forth to learn and master various aspects of apparel designing. " I was interested in the fashion designing world. I was waiting for this kind of opportunity," said Ashwina Lama, a trainee. Apart from imparting the art of apparel design, the Directorate of Handloom and Handicraft has also set up an apparel unit solely for women at the ATDC. "By this training we would like to give them employment opportunities not only within the state but outside the state also. Especially, you must have now come to know that placement is guaranteed in this training programme. So, it is not necessary for our young girls and boys after completing this training programme to go and join garment industry available in the other states but now they can start their own unit," said Namrata Thapa, Director of Handloom and Handicrafts, Sikkim and Director, ATDC. The women who have 'graduated' from ATDC have several vocational options like making uniforms for police, army and different other professions. Apparel industry in India plays a significant role related to the textile industry. The fashion designing as a profession is maintaining its pace with the new trends and allied techniques.
