LIZ BLACK REVIVES THE SURREALISM OF SALVADOR DALI

By February 20, 2014 Events, LFW

liz-black-presentation

Autumn/Winter 2013 was heavily influenced by art. Dali’s artwork, for example, has been intrinsically involved with the fashion industry and has served for inspiration to many designers throughout the years. One of his paintings, auctioned at Christie’s this month, was commissioned for Vogue’s October 1943 issue, proving how art and fashion do work together.

Liz Black’s Autumn/Winter 2014 presentation is another favourite. Not that I’m biased because I‘ve met her previously, or because she’s Venezuelan, but the whole Salvador Dali concept was completely unexpected in an interesting and entertaining presentation during London Fashion Week. Very unusual make-up of mock-outraged eyes by Face Lace, and pony tails that felt like someone was pulling the models from the back, moustache and red lippy dresses. The models opened the show as they simulated coming out of an egg and submerged into Dali’s dramatic life.They had plenty of space to exhibit the beautifully-made pieces in crepe and jersey, delicate tiers of chiffon, and sleek and leather-panelled tailoring. Leather and neoprene is one of Liz Black’s iconic textures, but this season leather was clearly the protagonist. The surrealism came out in 3-D moustache appliques, the most noticeable one on the chest of the camel midi-skirt dress.

The nude dress with the huge red lips surrounding the hips absolutely blew my mind… I’m not sure if it would give the best feminine shape, as you might feel like a Queen ant while walking with it on, but that wouldn’t bother me at all. Just picture that dress combined with the classic LuLu Guinness lips clutch? Red lippy galore!

British Red Cross event: Gala Brazil

By November 8, 2012 Events

As I told you last week, the British Red Cross was having an amazing charity event this Tuesday 6th November and it ended up an entire success. As I was volunteering I couldn’t take more pictures or carry my big camera on, however, I did take some shots with my iPhone while I was helping around. And I must say it was a fabulous experience, I was privilege to give a hand to this wonderful charity that after months and months of preparation managed to throw a gala with a Brazil theme, where food, music and entertainment were absolutely excellent. Guests enjoyed an exotic evening of an Issa London Spring/Summer fashion show, a fun auction, a surprise from three musicians, samba, garotas, and a DJ that played great tunes until late night at the beautiful Grand Connaught Rooms. So from FashionInsideOut I would like to say thank you for the experience and very well done for such a wonderful event that will help so much needed people in Syria. Cheers for that!

PS: I was wearing a Liz Black dress  and headband was supplied to the volunteers.

Outfit of the day: Blue & yellow

By May 18, 2012 OUTFITS 1

Remember when I showed you the collection Superheroine Chic of Liz Black? There I spotted this set of skirt and shirt of colour blocking, which again mixing textures by adding those awesome shoulder sleeves of yellow leather. As you can see the pictures were taken in a hallway of a London’s offices building, so although that’s not the idea, the look goes for a modern and chic business woman right? Yes, above all, chic. The metal necklace, designed by Liz’ sister, gives the young touch, and the shoes and handbag the sporty one. So, are we meeting at your office? Have a lovely Friday!

Recuerdan cuando les mostre la coleccion Superheroina de Liz Black? De alli es este set de falda y camisa colour clocking y nuevamente combina texturas agregando en los hombros esas fantasticas mangas de cuero amarillo. Como pueden ver, las fotos fueron tomadas en un pasillo de uno de esos edificios de oficinas en Londres, asi que aunque no fue intencional, el look va por la mujer moderna y chic de negocios, ante todo chic! El collar de metal, disenado por la hermana de Liz, le da el toque joven al look, y los botines y cartera el toque casual/sport. Asi que, nos reunimos en tu oficina? Que tengas un Viernes encantador!

EXCLUSIVE interview with Lady Gaga’s choice designer Liz Black

By April 14, 2012 Designers, Interviews

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of visiting Liz Black‘s studio in London, and I must admit I left pretty much impressed. I knew little about this Venezuelan-born designer, but I did know that Lady Gaga wore one of her coolest designs. From that visit, I not only bring you her fabulous Superheroine AW12, but also the the strong woman behind those designs. As she graduated, she created her own label to let the freedom of her creativity sparkle. Black graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2010 and her graduation collection couldn’t get a better feedback than being Lady Gaga’s choice, who not only wore one of her black & white smoking-like dresses, but also asked for more as she got three pieces to wear in a music video.

Now Black has been called a ‘Vogue talent’ by Vogue Italia and was a semi-finalist for the fashion Fringe awards 2011. As I show you the amazing afternoon I spent with the designer at her studio trying perfect pieces and looking at her collections, I interviewed her, so let’s Liz give us a flavour of the elegant, minimal and aesthetic label that has taken her to an upper level in the fashion industry.

Wearing Liz Black AW 12

By April 12, 2012 OUTFITS 1

This is one of my favourite designs from Liz Black’s AW12 collection, Superheroine. The combination of textures and colours makes the skirt and jacket a perfect match. Sharp cuts and two single-stripes that flow as a rainbow across the skirt, from one end to another. Absolutely felt in love with this modern tailoring inspired in heroines. I spotted it when visiting Liz Black studio, and I got so much more pictures from her previous and latest collection, plus the profile of a talented designer that has been Lady Gaga’s choice.
