Fall’s bits and pieces

Fall fashions are showing in a variety of ways. Hair and makeup, as well as the clothes, complete the total look. Emily Saunders, a New York City designer born to British parents, presents the best of both worlds. She spent the early part of her life in Greenwich Village while attending the United Nations School. During her life, she traveled to faraway places that fostered her deep love of art and fashion. She also worked as an intern in the women’s costume room at the Royal Opera House, at Perry Ellis and at Marc Jacobs.
Her fall collection was artistic. The models were made up beautifully. Her namesake brand, Saunder, offered quality workmanship, and it reflected her eclectic taste and temperament. Her pieces encapsulated the essence of her femininity. Many of her model’s face makeup reminded this editor of the characters in the movie “Sounder.” Actually, the designer wanted to solidify her own appreciation for the art of costume and design.
For men, Cassian Lau, designer for iiJIN, wears several hats. He is a reputable fine arts painter, designer, illustrator, cartoonist, retail menswear buyer and fashion stylist. In addition to running Cassian Gallery, he has private showings all over the world. He brings an artistic flair to the runway. His attention to detail is just as important in each of his garments as the brush strokes on his canvases.
The BOSS women’s wear collection presents a versatile range of fashions with an array of sophisticated modern classics for business. Designer Jason Wu also includes leisure and formal wear in the collection. These looks are perfect for the most demanding tastes, and they accentuate the wearer’s personality,
