Luxury Blog Fashion + Class & Jet Lag Collaborates With Fashion Designer George Zaharoff At Select Nordstrom Stores
Luxury blog fashion + class & jet lag is pleased to announce sponsorship of a nationwide tweet-up, collaborating with mens/womenswear designer George Zaharoff which will be held at select Nordstrom locations. Wanting to showcase Zaharoff's Mens Fall/Winter 2011 Collection, Nordstrom will be the location for the first ever in-store tweet-ups in key mainline stores. Happening on Saturday evenings in select cities during the end of September/beginning of October, the tweet-ups will occur right after Mr. Zaharoff's daytime personal appearances.
The personal appearances will be open to Nordstrom's customers, which then will be immediately followed by the specific social media in-store events, geared heavily toward those who are signed-up with Twitter. The social media part, to take place on the sales floor, will be sponsored by fashion + class & jet lag, hosted personally by Editor and Writer Giuseppe Longo. George Zaharoff will be present for meet-and-greet. Limited gift bags will be handed out.
Taking marketing and social media to the next level, Zaharoff and fashion + class & jet lag are reaching out directly and personally to everyone in the "twittersphere," having been inspired by many months of engagement with members on Twitter. This will be the first time a retailer, fashion brand and luxury blog have combined forces to spotlight a designer's collection within three key markets - Seattle, Chicago, and Washington DC. George Zaharoff says, "These are going to be very special tweet-ups as well as fun and casual. Just to be able to introduce myself and the collection to people we chat with on an almost daily basis is awesome." Giuseppe Longo agrees, "This is the future of marketing - social media. And doing this innovative collaboration with George and Nordstrom is going to be exciting. The best part will be meeting everyone and also tweeting with them."
The dates are as follows at the following Nordstrom stores:
-Seattle Bellevue Square: September 24
-Washington, DC Pentagon City: October 1
-Chicago Michigan Avenue: October 8
The tweet-up events will be from 4 PM until 7 PM, immediately following the Zaharoff's seasonal personal appearances. They are looking forward to having everyone online join the fun.

Also, the designated hash tag that has been assigned for the tweet-ups: #ZLive

The Business of Colour
Last month, in New York City, I attended the first showing for the Fall 2012 fabric season, at what is called Premiere Vision. Some of the biggest mills where there showcasing their pre-Fall 2012 swatches. The real kick off happens at Premiere Vision in Paris in September for Fall 2012 (and February 2013 for Spring 2014) and then three days later in Milan (followed by Sao Paolo and Hong Kong).

Spring/Summer 2012 Colours

As I walked in the old Altman building, where the venue was held, I was immediately greeted by some of the salesmen from the Italian mills Zaharoff does business with. Between the two huge rooms was a smaller room, on the bare wall, twenty squares of different colours, the colours of the season – “honeysuckle” “coral” “lime”. These are what will trickle down over the next couple of years into other sectors of the economy besides clothing, from furniture to automobiles.
“It’s not just blue, it's not turquoise, it's not lapis, it's actually cerulean.” – Miranda Priestly
In “The Devil Wears Prada”, Miranda was telling Andy about the colour of her “cerulean” (shade of blue) sweater. “It’s not just blue, it's not turquoise, it's not lapis, it's actually cerulean.” And then Miranda goes on to talk about how it trickles down from couture to the bins of Casual Corner – and the countless jobs and millions of dollars in commerce involved. She is absolutely correct.
Fashion touches just about everything in the world around us, from colours and patterns, textures and silhouettes. The Pantone colour guide came about in 1962. The late 1970s gave rise to the designer, the likes of Giorgio Armani, Karl Lagerfeld, Calvin Klein, Valentino and Gianni Versace. The brown hues of Calvin Klein in the late 70s to the early 80s defined an era. Versace was one of the pioneers in fabric, demanding from the Italian mills more and more intricate fabrics, brighter hues.
Pantone announces “Honeysuckle” Colour of the Year 2011 (2010’s? Turqouise)
It’s not just by chance when one season you see all pink and then the next, well, honeysuckle. The yarns the mills work with have to be dyed, those dyes are made by global conglomerates. The mills use these dyes for their fabrics, which designers choose for their collections and, finally, into stores all over the world.
It wasn't unusual for a wife to refer to her husband as "Mr. Jones" about a century ago. In today's society, customs and the way we refer to family and friends have changed considerably. Actually, the use of first names were restricted to children, between brothers and sisters, and perhaps (but only before their wedding day) by a girl and her fiancé. Can you imagine this nowadays? Maybe a child calling an elder "Mr. or Mrs." but that's about it.
It is custom to call your parents, mom or dad, but a stepparent with children, depending on the circumstances, it is in the children's power to call them by their first name. The most important thing is children should never be forced to call a stepparent "Mother" or "Father." If you are a stepparent, give your children the freedom and right to call you however they please.
