So here we all are moving towards spring already and we have to admit that some of the trends this fall fell shoot of our expectations. Here is a quick list of the BAD:
When did looking like a homeless woman come into fashion? We saw greasy locks hit the runway, possibly the worst hair trend for Fall but of course it’s always a matter of opinion.
Wang gets it wrong - this hair trend is for the homeless
Fur everywhere? Okay, we all heard of Chanel’s fur suit but do we need fur jewelry? I mean isn’t there a limit where the hide of dead animals should be worn? Let’s stick to handbags and clothes please!
Let's just keep fur classic - handbags and clothing only!
Prints head to toe makes me feel like I have gone back to the 70’s even though I wasn’t born yet! A dizzying array of bright bold patterns! The worst part is that this trend is following us into Spring!!! Yikes!
Foral is best in pieces!
F.U.S.C.H.A. has had a stunning year so far and the best is yet to come. We were tapped by FGI as emerging jewelry designers, requested by Aqua Di Lara to adorn thier suits in Mercedes Benz swim and we were published in our first magazine. We also have gotten a new store in Miami. It’s a big list and no one is prouder than we are of our accomplishments. Now we are ready to Launch our newest collection – Ennui. The launch was held off due to our trip to New York. As soon as the ad hit facebook and the items were added to etsy, we were personally invited to sell at a Wynwood gallery during Art Basel season! Yes we are happy to showcase our new collection and get some more press (even though we have gotten a few press nods already).
What’s next for FUSCHA? Well, we look forward to launching our next collection based on Japanese fashion craze, harajuku – kokoroiki. It will be casual items worked into floral, striped, and skull prints with a rock flair.
I never thought I’d speak the words lanvin and H&M in the same sentence but yes I can now! The amazing designer Alber Elbaz has teamed up with the swedish clothing company H&M to bring you the frugal fashionista an amazing collection of tulle dresses, jewelry, shoes and handbags. The prices range from $19.99 for accessories to $250 for a dress. Now considering that the french designer’s regular line can cost upwards of thousands of dollars I say grab all you can from H&M! The collection debuts in stores November 20. You can view the collection at www.hm.com/us/#/lanvin
This pint sized diva is only 9 years old, already has her own style and a hit song! She loves punk clothes with a hip hop twist and wears her hair in all sorts of cool and funky colors and mohawks. Her parents are Will Smith and Jada Pinkett but her style and sound are all her own!

Gaga is a well known copycat: her video ideas are stolen from Rihanna; her character from Grace Jones and of course a host of possible people stating she has some how ripped them off. Sorry little monsters, Kerli is the latest celeb to feel the cold hands of Lady Gaga grasping at her fame (fame monster indeed).
A picture is worth a thousand words....
come on you know the similarities are uncanny! But Kerli Did it First!
The picture above is evidence enough of style icon, Kerli, contribution to Lady Gaga’s style. Nothing is wrong with being inspired by some elses’ style but claiming it as your own is a new low! Janet Jackson admits to being inspired by Micheal, Brittany Spears by Madonna, and even Adam Lambert by Madonna. So why is she so special that she is above such influences of others.
The most recent is the hair. Yes, Lady Gaga has been stealing kerli’s hairstyles. It is gotten so bad that she has been asked to change her style even though it is Lady Gaga who is copying. Her record dates keep being pushed back and the more she seeks to change her look, the more Lady GaGa copies it. So should the original change for the copycat? Then what would the copycat copy?
gaga Dip colors her hair green just like....
kerli who dipped dyed her hair pink first
This October has been huge for F.U.S.C.H.A! We have had our clothing featured in a brand new video featuring T-pain (thats all we can say for now) shot in a men’s magazine (Cigar Snob) and now we are headed to NYC for Henri Bendels Open Call for new accessories designers! Keep your fingers crossed!
Its all about denim this fall! All washes in jeans, accessories and most important jackets! At the same time rocker will not die (Thank God!!) so for the third seaon in a row accessories and clothing with studs and zippers are still in. So I’ve decided to find outerwear that combines the two trends…. Denim motorcycle jackets! Wear them dressed up or down but these 2 versions will be a splurge AND gentle on your wallet!

I absolutely adore this stunning plus size rocker. She represents divas everywhere with her cool and effortless style. She is so fierce she recently opened the spring 2011 Jean Paul Gaultier fashion show! Talk about on fire! She also designs for british clothing store Evans and fronts the band The Gossip.
Everything has its own trend these day. When we think of trendy, we think clothes, shoes and accessories but what about hair? Yes, hair too can be trendy and we saw various styles hitting the runway this fall. This fall its all about faking short hair and having it too!! So fake a bob or a multicolored bun !
A slick twist, and a knot have us swooning over this simple hairstyle. Plus its low maintenance so all you need is a small twist band, a light condition and some upper body strength (wow, that was a workout).
It may look like a bob but its not!! This optical illusion allows those lucky enough to have serious locks to look like the majority. To create the sleek bob seen at Behnaz Sarafpour, first mist hairspray over your strands and divide into top and bottom. Tease and back-comb the hair at the nape of your neck. Next, create a base by twisting hair into a low ponytail, wrapping under, and pinning in place. Let down the top portion and flatiron, then curl under and attach to the base. Alot of work but worth it, for a trouble free hairdo!!
Of course, I won’t forget about us short hair gals ( I am a card carrying member;). We have some options to change our look as well. A simple deep side part can do wonders for your face or a slick back look like the one below.
Of course, if you want a serious change; go for choppy layers! It frames the face, highlights bone structure and gives you an edgy appeal.
Whatever you choose, there is a style for everyone and now if you can’t afford this fall’s wardrobe (although we have some great alternatives); you can still be on trend.
Since military has been showing up all over the runways this fall and we talked about it in our “trends” section; I decided that I must give you a military jacket “get-it-for-less”. Suprisingly I found two versions that are both quite affordable. One, the military jacket from American Eagle being dirt cheap and the other from Bloomingdales you have to be able to drop a “Benjamin” on.
