Yesterday the Queen sat front row at London Fashion Week only a few weeks after the Paris Lingerie show.

The headlines showed the Queen relaxed and smiling. Her Majesty viewed Richard Quinn’s runway show alongside Dame Anna Wintour.  Richard is the first recipient of The Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design

Earlier on in the day I discovered on my mums computer two things that my grandfather had received a #distinguishedorderofservice by the King in 1941 in the UK and the letter that was sent confirming that Harlette selected for costume as part of the secret diary of a call girl show.

#themostinterestingthingonmymumscomputer

Only a few weeks ago I was front row in Paris at the Lingerie Show, using a Microsoft phone and Microsoft Surface I have uploaded some video’s on twitter of the view from front row.

I  also visited the place where the very first bikini made its 1st debut in the world in 1946 at the art deco pool in Paris and filmed during the evening and the morning

Before the end of the year I also I had the opportunity to meet George Osborne and hear his most amazing story on Graphene and how he helped the UK be very forward thinking. George then made a bold move with nobel peace prize winners, to establish a National Centre for Graphene in Manchester and inviting the Chinese president Xi Jinping to UK to Manchester. What an amazing story

More on this later as you know Harlette is testing this amazing material in Sweden, thanks  to some amazing people in Texas to develop new products for the company combining tech with fashion.

The media is awash with the news of offshore investments Panama Gate, resignations of Iceland’s Prime Minister, but something that caught my attention was an article in the guardian on sweat shops in Myanmar.

All this talk of Offshoring got me thinking about Onshoring.  Since 2009 Harlette have been practitioners of Onshoring, beginning with designing & manufacturing in Australia.

This is an example of Australian Design and Manufacturing recently on Catwalk in Caribbean on the island of Curacao as part of International Swim Fashion Week.

#NormCom Revolution Paris Nana’s in Knickers

Posted in Fashion Week, France, Lingerie, Lingerie Models, Paris, Underwear, Womens Empowerment with tags , , , on January 26, 2016 by harlette

Imagine the catwalk bursting into life and colour as the first lingerie silhouettes take flight and sounds fill the air like hungry ghosts reminding you, I don’t think about you anymore but I don’t think about you any less

There is acrobatic ribbon dancing and a sweet serenade between lovers embracing and climbing on each other as the show intensifies.

Then, arrives without warning, a moment when you scratch your head, and ask really is this what people want?

Reality

Well in Paris on the 25th of January 2016, that is what the crowd clapped and cheered for. In the Garden of Eden, enchantment surrounded, elegance and the best succulent designs from around the globe were not cheered, were not celebrated they were treated as the expected, the mundane, the average and the same.

CZgyKryW0AEqWEq

In a moment of frenzy, what you see in every house around the world in basic traditional colours. Erupted a reaction that one can only describe as Incredible.

Claps and Cheers for “Nana’s in Knickers” as they skipped and sauntered their way through Lingerie Paris catwalk on a Sunday afternoon.

WP_20160124_14_48_48_Pro

There is a movement of people #JOMO (joy of missing out) and celebrating disconnecting from it all, going to bed at 10pm and getting up a 4am doing life like our grandparents did.

Now with what was on the catwalk in Paris are we going to be looking to our grandparents to be style icons?

Will the ROMCom all white t shirt, blue jeans, white tennis shoes stars from friends be replaced with NormCom, and Nana’s and styles to be defined by normal hair shades, normal colour palettes.

Is this what society craves right now, Normal?

Or is it something more delicious than this?

That Femininity of all ages is timeless, that no age group is going to be left out. That the catwalk is no longer something exclusive for a younger female form.

Big Questions

Is there a revolution starting in Paris that will permeate the annuals of Fashion?

At the Paris Opera, there was a live band, playing The Specials Message to Rudy

Stop your messing around (ah-ah-ah)
Better think of your future (ah-ah-ah)
Time you straighten right out (ah-ah-ah)
Creating problems in town (ah-ah-ah)

The song permeated what was going on the catwalks, at the core of life, right now its about basics, settling down, accepting what is. The future is very much unknown, but we are going to need the strength and wisdom of all our family, friends, and all age groups to get where we all need to go to in 2016.

Its all about celebration of #NormCore from Paris, with the Designer of the Year being Hanro.
