“Thomas Card has documented the madness and fabulousness of Japanese youth culture with relentless, joyful clarity.”—Simon Doonan, Creative Ambassador, Barneys NY
Tokyo Adorned, the first book from acclaimed New York-based photographer and director Thomas C. Card, will be released on March 11 by Booth-Clibborn Editions with the book signing taking place at: Kinokuniya Bookstore, 1073 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY (between 40th & 41st St.) from 6:00-7:30pm. (You can also pre-order the book on Amazon right now!)
Comprised of 132 striking color photographs, Tokyo Adorned is an oversized 12.5 by 15 inch hardcover book celebrating the striking styles of individuals in the the city’s world-famous street fashion scene. The book’s release marks the third anniversary of the tsunami that hit Japan in 2011 and captures the reverberations of the disaster in Tokyo’s thriving street style community. “When the earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan, the country experienced an upsurge of national pride and participants in street fashion increasingly celebrated their unique placement within the Japanese culture at large,” says Card. “These photographs provide a window into these people’s innermost perceptions of themselves.” A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to Second Harvest Japan, the only nationwide food bank in Japan.
To document the city’s street fashion community, Card spent the spring of 2012 in Tokyo photographing various individuals and their vibrant personal styles. Japanese fashion tribes originated in the early 1990s, when young people, particularly young women, began rebelling against traditional Japanese culture. Marked by playfulness and inventiveness, these styles have impacted fashion trends around the world. As opposed to most street fashion photography, which typically takes place on the busy streets of Tokyo, Card brings his subjects into the more focused, intimate environment of the studio. In an essay written for the book, Buzz Spector, Dean of the Art School at Washington University in St. Louis comments on the effect of Card’s Style: “Thomas’s great skill is in ensuring that viewers focus on the subjects rather than the photographer’s technique…Looking into their eyes, you find connection with their humanity.” Additionally, the book includes an introduction by Simon Doonan, Creative Ambassador for Barneys New York, and an analysis by Dr. Samantha Boardman, a psychiatrist and blogger.
Thomas C. Card’s commercial photography career began in 1995 with a still life editorial for Interview Magazine. He has since contributed to many publications around the world including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and the New York Times Magazine, and his commercial clients have included Apple, Gucci, Versace, Ferragamo, Barneys NY, Pepsi, Crest, Gap and L’Oreal. In addition to his work as a photographer, Card co-wrote and directed Finding Virginia, a feature film that debuted in the New Filmmakers Forum at the St. Louis International Film Festival.

Never let it be said that Gia On The Move doesn’t know how to up-style for a party. These looks are far and above some of the most expensive we’ve seen. But hey…one can dream…
In the steep hills of San Francisco, an innovative and high fashion store emerged from the land of tie die and circle scarves.
Circle and Square is a curated online boutique based out of San Franciscos Pacific Heights neighborhood. The name Circle & Square is inspired by the 1929 French Art Movement “Cercle et Carre´,”which supported emerging art and its transformative properties. Echoing that impulse, Circle & Square was founded to bring a selection of the finest, most unique accessories by talented independent designers and artists to women with an individual sense of style. Circle and Square has a wide variety of designers who cater to a multitude of different women.
Here are some of their Academy Award-winning looks:

We received this from Glitterati Buzz this morning. It was too fab to not share:
The fashion moment is everything. It’s that je ne sais quoi that drives men and women to the an image, a look, an energy that is expressed through style, through attitude and profile. The fashion moment is when the fates align and the image transcends and comes alive.
Ohio-born designed Michael McCollom began his career in New York as design director of the ISAIA NYC collection and was named one of the “Designers to Watch” by Vogue in 1990. Recognized as a designer and a photographer. McCollom’s clients have included Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton and Julia Roberts.
McCollom is also the author of The Way We Wore: Black Style Then, which has just been re-released by Glitterati Incorporated. Featuring snapshots from the personal photo albums of over 150 black men and women, the book features never-before-published photographs of Oprah Winfrey, James Baldwin, Iman, Naomi Campbell, Tyran Banks, Patrick Kelly, Kimora Lee, Bobby Short, Bethann Hardison, and Portia LaBeija, among countless others.
From the Harlem Renaissance to the birth of Hip Hop, The Way We Wore celebrates the personal style of African Americans over the larger part of the twentieth century. Each image reminds us of the space where the public and private spaces intersect, where style is the bridge between the individual to the world, telling a story of self through the fashion moment.
The Click spoke with McCollom about his personal style moments, about the things that he both saw and created that shaped and influenced his world. Read the full story atTHE CLICK.
Glamour and allure — two ideals no woman should ever live without, especially in her wardrobe. To satisfy the both, designer Maggy London has created a must-have statement piece for any closet: the Illusion dress.
Dramatized with a sheer neckline and cap sleeves trimmed in black, it is sophisticated as it is sexy. A sweetheart bodice lends enchanting “mesmer” to the retro-inspired silhouette. The illusion top is delicately gathered, drawing the eye to the décolleté. Fitted throughout the torso, and highlighted with vertical seams, the style is instantly slenderizing. Only $148, this little black dress is a stunner.
The Illusion Dress is currently available for pre-order exclusively at:

New York based designer Sergio Dávila presented his Fall/Winter 2014/15 Collection during Fashion Week NYC called, Urban Canvas - a blend of color, history and adventure.
The free spirits of nomadic tribes roaming rural Brazilian lands in caravans set the mood for this season. There have been Gypsies in Brazil since the sixteenth century and the romantic ideal of their dancing around a flickering fire to rhythmic clapping and chanting inspire this collection’s hues of ruby red and emerald green.
Loose-fitting shirts and jackets with knit and leather sweatpants are a key silhouette derived from Brazilian gypsy horsemen’s trousers and jackets.
Knitted jacquard sweaters in browns and blues are specially crafted with baby alpaca and fine organic cotton, both native to Peru. Baby Alpaca is of a finer grade that standard alpaca grade, indicating the luxurious nature of the Sergio Davila brand.
“My heritage and roots are always the starting point of developing a new collection. I reflect on my journeys in between the three Americas and find the perfect intersection of design and culture for my clothing.”
Since launching his brand in 2004, Dávila has won awards and accolades in the United States and Peru. He was the winner of the Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Award for Best Menswear Designer 2009, and in 2010, was nominated for Best Menswear Designer by the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation. The Sergio Dávila brand has three flagship stores in South America. In the United States, the brand is available exclusively at the New York flagship store.
