Okay, So perhaps I am just out of the loop when it comes to American fashions, trends, and stores. But target is going to be carrying Jean Paul Gaultier for Target... Umm so I know curiosity killed the cat, but I am Kat and my curiosity got to the best of me. Did I like what I saw? Not even a little bit. I am really not impressed. But then again, I am a bit of a snob.

Okay, so I wasn't REALLY a fan of the Olympics but now I am really glad to be living in Vancouver to experience this. It is chaos. It is manic. It is pride. It is history. And what will be going down as the NUMBER ONE TREND OF 2010? The Hudson Bay Company Canadian Olympic Mittens.

What's In a Name?

So it has taken me this long to finally come up with a name for my design house. Ready for it?.... Drum roll please.... Genevieve Alexander.

So how did I come up with this name you ask?
Well it is the combination of my sisters first name and my brothers last name. Both such beautiful names, and together they are a perfect marriage of names.

The dresses for the fashion show are coming along. Once I figure out how to scan properly I will post some images of the technical drawings and what not.

A Sad Day in the Fashion World

Everyone says that they will remember where they were when they heard that Princess Diana died. True, I do. But I will always remember where I was when I heard that the amazingly talented and gifted McQueen had passed away.

I was on my way to do a window display for a store in Gastown, Vancouver when a friend BBMed me and told me the shocking news. While I didn't cry, I did feel the world was being robbed of such an amazing designer.

I had never met the man, but a lot of my own designs are inspired by his collections.Strange, weird, different.

I extend my condolences to his family. Farewell Alexander McQueen.

Jeans - How Not To Wear

I was shopping for new jeans on the weekend. Everywhere I went had, and only had, low rise jeans. Well this is just wonderful. I HATED low rise jeans when they came out the first time and I hate them just as much now if not more. So people this is what you have to look forward to in the next season of denim wear.
