DAVID DE ALVA “ART WALK” 05.31.11

David de Alva was born in Madrid, Spain in 1962 while his parents were on a European tour with internationally know Pilar Lopez Flamenco Dance Company. David began his studies at the age of ten with Protégées of Segovia and Romero Brothers in their master classes. Later, he continues his flamenco guitar training with the inspiration of Paco de Lucia, Manitas de Plata, Carlos Montoya and Sabicas. His talents have brought special excitements to concerts in New York, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Seville, Street Scenes of San Diego, San Francisco and many others. During his extensive tours abroad, his music was also inspired by Brazilian Jazz, South American and Mediterranean rhythm to create a unique blend of traditional Flamenco and World fusion style music. Surely, David de Alva, uncommon talent, versatility, and impressive musical repertory must rank him among the extraordinary artists of our times.

SPRING/SUMMER 2011 COLOR TRENDS 05.20.11

We thought it would be a really great idea to inspire you with the latest color trends forecasted for the upcoming spring/summer planning brides.  These are colors that can set the whole tone of your entire wedding…..we hope you enjoy!

Cloth / Fabric Spring 2011 Colour Trends

For their take on the colors for Spring 2011 clothing trends, cloth manufacturers Lenzing believe that we won’t just be throwing off the darker colours of Fall 2010′s trends but possibly even the mentality that has gone with recent financially tough times. Thus they see Spring / Summer 2011 colors as those which are “uplifting” and “soften, energise, and excite.”

For the Spring / Summer 2011 season they’ve put forwards five key colour trends.

Celebration
Spring personified in a palette, the colors that make up this Spring 2011 color trend are mostly named after flowers: iris, viola, daffodil, poppy, and geranium. Unsurprisingly, should this color scheme take your fancy, this one should be worked into your Spring 2011 wardrobe as a part of your florals.

Abstraction

I must confess to not liking this color palette in the leastl the turquoise clashes with the maroon to my eye, and how yellow green made it in there has left me stumped. This is one color trend for those who are loud and proud.

New Classic
According to Lenzing new and unexpected twists on classic elements, and naturally bright pigments, will develop into new classics. “Fabrics are classic, materials the same but all elements are somewhat twisted: fibers in unusual yarn-spinning and -counts, classical weave patterns in atypical materials clashed with a curious checkered design, an embroidery where you didn’t expect it – nothing loud, just enough to make you startle.”

Aqueous
Sitting as our favourite Spring / Summer 2011 color trend ‘aqueous’ is also the most dangerous. An obvious color theme for Spring 2011 because of its nautical tones, such obviousness is also what is likely to see it lazily interpreted and applied – a danger for designers and labels looking to apply seasonal colors to their basics. To avoid such misapplication Lenzing believe it should be used with “floating” pieces where the fabric is the focus; an interpretation of the sheer clothingtrend seems a strong contender if you intend to work this color theme through your wardrobe.

Perleage
Subtle colours, bar for the jet black, this is a color trend all about sheen; in effect, luxurious and radiant colors menat to match with your radiant Summer tan.

WEDDING TRENDS FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2011 05.18.11

Here are the latest wedding trends for Spring/Summer 2011 from the experts over at Exquisite Weddings Magazine.

Rose Gold

Rose Gold “Rose gold gets its pink color from copper and can be found on many fashion forward, daring men and woman around town,” declares Jenny Seligmann, owner of Diamonds Forever San Diego.

Pocket Dresses

“I am seeing more and more gowns with pockets these days, especially in our A-Line dresses with the fuller skirts. They have little pockets hidden in the side seams,” says Courtney Gavin, owner of Isis Bridal Boutique.

Photo Wall Entrances

“Rather than displaying a single image on an easel, couples are opting to share their story in a larger-than-life way with multiple photos. This new trend makes a sensory impact on guests and lets them in on a couple’s life prior to the day of the wedding rather than just witnessing their special day,” says Meaghan Schmaltz, owner of Weddings Made Splendid. Schmaltz coordinated this wedding at the Ultimate Skybox on December 11, 2010.

Tie Clips

“With traditional suits becoming more prominent at weddings, grooms are starting to don Bond-esque classic attire with tie clips. Kenneth Cole has reasonably-priced, yet debonair clips,” says Nick Valley of Valley & Co.

Icing-Free Cakes

Some brides are skipping overly ornate cakes and choosing more natural-looking confections. “We’re seeing a new movement towards deconstructed cakes with an emphasis on taste and a rustic look,” says Annie Packman, founder of the wedding blogmarryyoume.com.

Custom Welcome Bags

“Welcome Bags are amazing gifts for your wedding guests. It’s a wonderful personalized way to say, ‘Thank you for coming.’ Items to consider should be consumable, portable and useful, not to mention fun,” chimes Diana Romero, wedding coordinator and owner of Ah! Le Party.

Dress Rental

Style out your wedding party in designer couture without asking them to max out their credit cards. According to Rent the Runway, “Friends don’t let friends buy bridesmaids dresses.” And just think, one less unwearable piece in the closet. renttherunway.com

Romantic Embellishments

“Custom, handmade headbands, sashes or jewelry are personalized touches that reflect a bride’s individual style and help her feel unique on her very special day,” explains Cecilia Church, owner of Vocabulary boutique.
