RWT Review: Acne SS 2012

As you might have noticed, Acne is one of my favorite fashion houses. Their design is simple, well structured, and different from other labels. Scandinavian fashion is the leading one from my point of view, and Stockholm is the capital of it. Acne's Johnny Johansson added:

"Historically we don't have a fashion background, really," he said after his latest Acne show. "Architecture, yes. Design, yes. But fashion?" 

What do you think of that? Do you agree or disagree with him?

I leave you my picks from this WONDERFUL collection. My favorite so far.

RTW Review: Balmain SS 2012

The house of Balmain presented their Spring/Summer 2012 collection on Paris Fashion Week. The pieces are very rock-ish, with a bit of tailoring. Balmain is well known for the care free look, but this time they're adding pastel colors to their designs, which I think is awesome. Here are my favorite looks from the runway:

Teen Vogue Fashion U

Last year, I was accepted to go to Teen Vogue Fashion University, and it was one of the most amazing and gratifying experiences of my life. I got to hear from really important people in the industry about their careers and how to succeed like they did. Last year, I took the following classes: Rachel Roy, Fashion Bloggers (Hanneli Mustaparta, Street Peeper, Judy and Jane Aldridge), Zac Posen, and Vera Wang. And the most important fact: I got to see and hear Anna Wintour in person; she gave the opening remarks.

You can check me out at the video on the TVFU website

Well, this post is specially for announcing that I have been accepted to this year's TVFU!!!!

I couldn't be more excited! I am overjoyed! These are the seminars I'm taking:
  • Whitney Port
  • Alexander Wang
  • Proenza Schouler
  • Michael Kors
  • Teen Vogue Editors
  • Editorial floor tour
Not to mention the two private shopping sessions at H&M and Topshop!!

Quite impressive, right? I am so lucky to be part of this, and I hope it helps on my career.

My weekend at Guadalajara

Two weeks ago, Hernan and me travelled to Guadalajara to meet our friend Roberto to celebrate his birthday. We all met during our semester abroad in Florence, Italy. It was a very fun weekend I must say. Roberto took us to so many nice places, and we ate like crazy, and so delicious!

Guadalajara definitely became one of my top favorite cities in Mexico.

Alexa Chung for Madewell

Alexa is one of my favorite style icons. She is so beautiful and knows quite a lot about style. She partnered with Madewell and developed an amazing collection. It will available in stores and online on September 22nd. Here is the campaign video featuring Alexa Chung wearing her designs. Love them all.

Lanvin, always so creative

I am loving this new campaign of the french fashion house Lanvin, featuring Pitbull. Alber Elbaz appears at the end of the little clip and it's quite funny and it goes against the traditional high scaled campaigns that are sometimes boring. Very nice Lanvin!
