Fall 2012 Jewelry Trends

With New York Fashion Week September 6 – 13, fashionistas, designers, and fashion bloggers everywhere are all standing by to take notes and let the world know about the unveiling of this season’s hottest trends. We’ve been doing a bit of runway research ourselves, and have gathered predictions of this fall’s most fashionable jewelry looks.

Color Trend:  Blue Hue

One of the most prominent colors of the past few seasons, blue will continue to be a must-have color for the fall 2012 season, especially in ultra marine shades. Combining unexpected shades of blue will be an essential styling message for the fall season. The easiest way to achieve this look is with blue gemstone rings, pendants and earrings. Aquamarine, Blue Topazand Sapphire gemstone jewelry will deliver the unexpected pop of color. One of our favorite ways to wear these gems is with your jeans and heels – a tasteful surprise that always turns heads. Read more of this post

Accessorizing Your Favorite LBD (Little Black Dress)!

The wonderful thing about the little black dress is that it doesn’t draw attention to itself and looks like a different dress on each person. Accessories such as jewelry, scarves, and shoes help set each dress apart. Its best to accessorize according to the occasion, so choose accessories that accentuate your assets to stand out from the rest.

Fashion Tips

Multi-drop Zirconite Pave Set Rhodium Plated Leaf CZ Necklace

Divide your little black dresses into two categories; those that have their own focal point, like an intricate neckline, sleeves,or  bead work, and the plain and simple ones. Dresses with their own focal points need very little accessorizing. A dash of color for the daytime or a hint of sparkle with jewelry for the nights are all that you need to get going.

Rising Fashion Jewelry Designers: Clara Kasavina

Turquoise Cabachones on Silver Sofia Clutch

Bijou Trésor has our finger on the pulse of the fashion world, so it should come as no surprise that we find rising talents like Clara Kasavina.

Born in the Ukraine, Kasavina met her future husband, Misha Berger, when they were children and would later meet him again when they had both moved to the United States. This fortuitous encounter would be the backbone of their company, where Berger works as a metal crafter and his wife creates unique pieces of fashion jewelry. Their New York studio allows them to spend time together making handbags, jewelry, and belt buckles. Read more of this post

On Thursday, Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips made the final two over Joshua Ledet and will face off for the title next week.

Style Fashion Week LA Recap, Octavio Carlin, Gypsy 05, Nicolita, Stop Staring!

If you were lucky enough to find an invite to this year’s Style Fashion Week LA, you definitely were treated to a fantastic industry party, plenty of Hollywood glamour and some spectacular runway performances by a slew of hot designers and even a few new emerging brands.

For those of you that missed it, here’s a little fall Style Fashion Week Los Angeles recap.

Style Fashion Week LA Recap

Just what is Style Fashion Week?  As you know, fashion weeks in cities like Milan or New York tend to draw a lot of press.  For whatever reason, Fashion Week in LA hasn’t been much of a high-production event in recent years.  In many ways, it takes a backseat to lots of Fashion Week events in more metro areas across the U.S. and some of the more glamour-minded cities throughout the fashion world.

But this year, things have been different.

Thanks to Style Fashion Week LA’s ability to showcase some extremely hot and emerging designers, many of whom are local to Southern California, this year’s performances have been pretty fantastic, causing some to go so far as to say they’ve put Fashion Week “back on the map” in LA.

Style Fashion Week Night 2: Stop Staring, Alternative Apparel,

Much like Style Fashion Week’s inaugural runway event last March, fashion industry reps and invited guests attending the old Vibiana Cathedral in downtown LA Tuesday got a runway full of retro from Paramount-based and vintage-ispired designers Stop Staring, this time to showcase their spring and summer 2012 designs.

Stop Staring!

Designer Alicia Estrada has stayed true to the retro vibe that’s made her line incredibly popular—kicking off the second night of Style Fashion Week LA as the first runway presenter, many of Estrada’s models looked like they popped out of a Fred Astaire dance choreography or maybe off the set of AMC’s Mad Men.
