Marco Bicego, the world renowned Italian jewellery house which burst upon the jewellery scene less than a decade ago and is hailed for its ability to redefine ‘everyday luxury’ presents interesting propositions in its lyrical Paradise collection. Blending delicate 18k yellow gold chains with his signature hand engraved gold beads, South Sea pearls and colourful gems of every hue the visionary designer comes up with yet another iconic collection to win women over in whimsical options for casual, day as well as evening allure.
Marco Bicego said: “The Paradise collection is defined by a flowing, cascading quality to it, enriched by a colourful blend of gemstones and hand engraved gold beads. Bicego fans would be interested to know that Paradise is a collection inspired by the sun’s reflection in the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean Sea when I was swimming there during one of my trips.”
Bicego’s jewellery has an emotive quality to it that’s immediately discernible to the viewer, and each handcrafted piece in the Paradise collection exudes this quality. As a term denoting a faraway land where one is free of all cares, ‘Paradise’ instantly recalls such aspects like bliss, ‘Seventh Heaven’ and ecstasy. And Bicego effortlessly translates his experience in Paradise’s glittering array of jewels by infusing a carefree, gypsy-charm to jewels of tactile joy that are simply irresistible.
Paradise has a poetic, flowing quality to it resembling water droplets strung on a thread, which shimmer as they catch the play of sunlight. In Paradise, Bicego immortalises the imagery with a rich, luminous array of multihued semi-precious stones such as amethysts, citrines, garnets, blue topaz, rose quartz, along with gleaming freshwater pearls and his signature hand engraved gold beads which play water droplets and strings them on delicate gold chains.
He then transforms them with practiced ease into single chain or multiple chain necklaces, bracelets, drop earrings and rings to offer jewels of pure feminine essence. While the single or double strands offer elegant accessories for casual and corporate wear, one can easily ‘amp’ evening glamour with Paradise’s rich, assortment of multiple strand jewels.

Fabrics used for lingerie
Lace is a lightweight, openwork fabric, patterned with open holes in the work, made by machine or by hand. Lace-making is an ancient craft. True lace was not made until the late 15th and early 16th centuries. A true lace is created when a thread is looped, twisted or braided to other threads independently from a backing fabric.
Originally linen, silk, gold, or silver threads were used. Now lace is often made with cotton thread. Manufactured lace may be made of synthetic fiber. A few modern artists make lace with a fine copper or silver wire instead of thread.
There are many types of lace, defined by how they are made. These include:
Needle lace: made using a needle and thread. This is the most flexible of the lace-making arts.
Cutwork, or white work; lace constructed by removing threads from a woven background, and the remaining threads wrapped or filled with embroidery.
Bobbin Lace: as the name suggests, made with bobbins and a pillow.
Tape lace: makes the tape in the lace as it is worked, or uses a machine- or hand-made textile strip formed into a design, then joined and embellished with needle or bobbin lace.
Knotted lace: including Macram and Tatting.
Crocheted lace: including Irish crochet, pineapple crochet, and filet crochet.
Knitted lace: including Shetland lace, such as the "wedding ring shawl", a lace shawl so fine that it can be pulled through a wedding ring.
Machine-made: any style of lace created or replicated using mechanical means. The machine is used to tie up the 'M' point together.
Muslin is most typically a closely-woven unbleached or white cloth, produced from corded cotton yarn. Wide muslin is called "sheeting". It is often used to make dresses or curtains but may also be used to complement foam for bench padding. Muslin breathes well, and is a good choice of material for clothing meant for hot, dry climates.

‘Indigo’ from the Levi’s Red Tab collection is about the soul of denim; an outcome of a new blueprint that strips away all the unnecessary optics to allow for the beauty of denim to shine through. Presented in a modern light, Indigo marries a fun, playful aesthetic with understated simplicity that will allow wearers to experiment and project their individualism and characters all at once.
“The current denim market mostly consists of denim jeans with excessive detailing and unnatural finishes. With Indigo, it’s about appreciating the beauty of denim without those distractions,” said Agnes Tann, strategic brand planning director for the Levi’s brand, Asia Pacific Division based in Singapore.
The Indigo jeans takes a cue from Spring Bottom Pants that were considered workwear in the late 1880’s. Named ‘Spring Bottom’ because of the flare at the leg opening, the unique design of the pants, particularly the triangular patch at the back, has been fused with modern, angular and edgy details with minimal embellishments for Indigo to bring out the beauty of denim.
The denim is a key focus of the range. With colorful customized selvage red cast, a dyed weft almost pure indigo colored denim as well as a special greencast fabrication, the rich shades throw a spotlight on the beauty of denim.
Besides the regular fits for denim bottoms, Indigo will also roll out denim bermudas for men and stylish quirks like the drop-crotch cropped volume jeans for women.
Adding a twist to the collection are buttons and rivets that have been color-coated bright blue – an interesting change from the metallic-looking sundries and reflective of the youthfulness and innovativeness of the Levi’s brand.
With accompanying tops and accessories that create fun looks however assembled, Indigo makes strong statements about one’s individuality.

The international buying community has requested and advised the Bangladeshi textile and garment industry to reduce prices of apparels and keep them at competitive rates comparable at least with those prevailing in competitor countries.
More than 50 buyers representing major international brands like Sears Holdings Global Sourcing Ltd, Marks & Spencer Plc, H&M International, Wal-Mart, JC Penney, Tesco International and Nike Inc attended a meeting of manufacturers and the buyers.
What has got worried the exporter’s community is the fall of 10 percent registered in the month of January when compared with the same month of 2008, from regions like US and the EU which account for 90 percent of shipments from the sector.
The Bangladesh Central Bank in turn has also helped the sector by bringing down the cost of accessing credit by bringing down rate of interest on loans to 13 percent from a high of 14-18 percent, to help the sector in its hour of crisis.
The garment sector generates export value totaling to US $11 billion and provides direct and indirect employment to more than 2.5 million people, mostly women.

She may be the simple girl-next-door type, born and raised in suburbia but the girl has big dreams. And we all know that big dreams fueled by passion can take people to wondrous heights. Keeley Hazell may be every man’s fantasy at the moment, but just two years ago she was practically an unknown, working as a hairdresser after quitting school at the age of 16.
At the age of 17, Keeley Hazell decided to join The Daily Star’s contest “Search for a Beach Babe” and won. By then she was already nursing bigger dreams, setting her sights on fashion modeling. Keeley decided to go to college at Lewisham College to study fashion. At 5’6” and short by international fashion standards, it was clear that it would take more than a college education to land her gigs in the fashion industry. When she turned 18, friends persuaded her to join The Sun’s Page 3 Idol. She was hesitant at first but decided that the Page 3 contest was going to open many doors for her and was an opportunity too hard to pass up. Keeley Hazell promptly submitted sexy photos taken by her boyfriend to The Sun and in December of 2004, she was chosen as the Page 3 idol of the weekly newspaper. True enough, more than the L10,000 worth of clothes and the one-year exclusive contract with The Sun, the contest gave Keeley numerous rewards. With a modeling career and now projects for movies, the young woman, raised in Grove Park, has really gone far.
Jon Fowler, a former music executive who is also behind the success of glamour model Kelly Brook, is currently managing Keeley Hazell’s promising career. Keeley is now determined to break into mainstream Hollywood and Jon Fowler is all set to steer Keeley’s career to the top.

Since dancing requires movements from all parts of our body dance clothing must be easy and they must be able to take the various movements that dancers are constantly using. The other essential for many dance clothing is that they should be elegant, bold and show the dancing movements. This means that when you go to choose certain types of dance clothing you should know what items you will need to heighten your dancing movements.
This is very significant otherwise your dancing will not have any impact on the audience to whom you are displaying your talent. For exemplify if you are a ballroom professional dancer you will need to break dance refined clothing like floor length dresses that have full skirt and a body line hugging bodice for women.
The men will need to wear a formal black tuxedo. For a more optic affect the clothing with be accented with bright one-sided designs in sequins and gem like accessories. The jewellery that may be haggard for these dance competitions should be of a bleak yet sophisticated nature.
The other very significant items that are needful for dance clothing to affect the observation audience is that of good quality dancing shoes. The men will be wearing black leather shoes that will let them twist, turn, pivot and twist their partners all the while that the music and their intricate steps indicate the level of their dancing ability. This will also let the women show how they can execute their steps while wearing high heels shoes.

Lingerie is not just another French term, but beyond that. The term is atypically pronounced with a faux French articulation as either lonj-er-ee (British) or lonj-er-ay (American). Not a difficult task to rightly pronounce it. Women have worn everything starting from a whalebone contraption with pulleys, to'near nothing' light and silky clothing as intimate wears.
Typically absorbing materials such as Lycra, nylon (nylon tricot), polyester, satin, lace and/or silk, and not applied to functional cotton undergarments, female lingerie are indeed the most alluring pieces having the attention of seasoned designers. The concept of lingerie being visually appealing was a development of the later nineteenth century. And since then, the lingerie industry has seen immense growth, owing to their increasing attractiveness and female infatuation for innerwear fashion.
Predominant Brands and Trends
Global lingerie market is estimated to be around $30 billion USD, with a projected growth rate of 9% over the next five years. Appeal for lingerie has undergone drastic changes during the past years. Now market is driven by brands that come up with innovative products. Renowned brands such as Calvin Klein, Lejaby, Rosy, Lise Carmel, and Victorias Secrets also dominate the international lingerie market. Designers focus more on creating new patterns with sumptuous lacy bits, satin pieces, enticing teddies, and skimpy thongs. Today besides everything else, the innerwear is in fact also endured as an outerwear. "Show it off" - is the philosophy and designers herald the same by offering lingerie designs that categorize it as a fashion accomplice with straps and lace trim which are deliberately layered and exposed as a slice of the outerwear.

Summary of 2009 Prom Trends:
• Metallic fabric, including fabrics made with a new form of lame that is soft
• Bright colors
• Fun patterns
• Stretch jersey or charmeuse
• Empire cut
"The 2009 prom dress season has been exciting and designers have done a great job pleasing the pickiest of teens," explains Tammy Ussery-Bakhtiari, owner of Cinderella's Gowns. "The colors, the patterns and the materials have made 2009 a memorable year for prom dress fashions. We've observed high demand this year for prom dresses designed by Jovani, Tony Bowls, and Tiffany. In addition to these designers, we've witnessed the rise of up and coming designer Amy at Cassandra Stone."
Metallics, Beads and The Empire:
The 2009 prom dress fashion season will be remembered for fun prints and vivacious colors. Think of the 1980s. Prints ranging from floral to animal prints and even abstracts have been very popular. One trend that is similar to the 80s, but with a modern twist, is a new form of lame' (pronounced "lah-MAY") -- Unlike the crunchy lame' of the 1980s the new form for 2009 is more comfortable, often applied to a fabric like stretch jersey and charmeuse (a lightweight fabric woven with a satin weave).
If 2008 was about sequins, then 2009 has been about beads and detailing. Several designers have created 2009 prom dresses with beaded designs covering the entire dress. Others have beaded details at the empire seam, giving them a sexy look.
