The Role Of Colours In Fashion

 Colours In Fashion 

Radical developments in fashion production and consumption have occurred over the past few decades. Far-reaching changes have dramatically transformed fashion supply-chain management and distribution at both national and international levels. In particular, radical innovations in communication and information technology have complicated globalization of markets and to changes in the nature of consumer demand.

National and international fashion events are no longer prerogative of just a small number of leading manufactures and key representative of the fashion press but rather are regarded as essential indicators to insure future commercial success.

Large retail organizations are active participants, and through the willing involvement of popular national media, consumers are conversant with the dominant stylistic themes of given fashion seasons. Fashion designer and catwalk models have become household names, and designer and retailer brand names have become familiar status symbols to many consumers internationally.

Fashion as a subject has become more firmly established in the academic literature, and in recent years, many useful insights have been offered, and more penetrating explanations of the processes of adoption and diffusion have become apparent.

In order to build a conceptual framework to aid the understanding of the phenomenon of fashion, it is important to appreciate the relation between terms such as 'style' and 'fashion'.

Dr. Martens

The Dr. Martens “Made in England” products are manufactured in the Cobbs Lane factory, Wollaston, England which has been making footwear for the Griggs family since 1901. It is the home of the original Dr. Martens boot and within this small factory works a close knit team of people schooled in traditional shoe making and the unique process that makes Dr. Martens like no other shoe on earth.

This is the factory where it all began; where the first pair of Dr. Martens boots rolled off the production line on April 1st 1960. The manufacturing process has been fine tuned and perfected ever since from the cutting of the leather hides to the heat sealing with a blade of fire that welds the air cushioned sole to the upper.

This is first time for everything and for many people their first pair of Dr. Martens is a memorable moment in time, an opening statement of rebellious self-expression and creativity. Over the past 50 years Dr. Martens boots and shoes haven’t changed the original styles are still simple, versatile, functional and stylish all at the same time.

Dr. Martens air-cushioned sole, designed by German inventor, Dr. Klaus Martens, was engineered primarily to meet the specific need of providing additional support and comfort for his broken foot.

The Dr. Martens boot, manufactured by R Griggs and Co, British boot makers, with its trademark yellow stitch, grooved sole and heel-loop, was a boot for workers; comfortable, durable and lightweight in comparison to its competitors at the time.

Initially worn by postmen, policemen and everyday workers, the boots were adopted, customized and used across decade after decade, as a tribal emblem by successive subcultures, each twisting and subverting the boots and shoes to meet their own individual identity.

In 2003 Dr. Martens was forced to stave off bankruptcy by closing all of its factories except the original Cobbs Lane factory. The hope was that, one day; this factory could manufacture small runs, one-offs or customized boots and shoes for those prepared to pay the extra cost of being “Made in England”.

In 2011 this small factory is ready to grow once again and Dr. Martens is looking to expand its UK capacity to 70,000 pairs of boots and shoes a year, sourcing components locally wherever possible to ensure that the “Made in England” range remains true to Dr. Martens authentic heritage. With this expansion comes the possibility of recruiting and training new workers, both young and old, to keep shoe making skills, in general, and Dr Martens know how, in particular, alive in Northamptonshire.
These same craftsmen also travel the world to ensure that all Dr. Martens products wherever they are manufactured are made not only using the right methods but also respecting the art of industrial manufacturing.

About The Brand

R.M.Williams was established in Australia in 1932, at South Australia. R.M.Williams is unique in the bush outfitting business not only because of the comprehensive range of seasonal and authentic products it sells, but because the company is a manufacturer, retailer and wholesaler of these quality goods.

R.M.Williams is a wholly Australian-owned company with a proud history of bush outfitting. For 80 years, the R.M. Williams Company has manufactured quality footwear, clothing and accessories that reflect Australia's true outback spirit and quintessential Australian style. While mail order is still a strong part of the R.M.Williams business, the company now distributes its quality products through an extensive network of retail stores as well as its wholesale business in Australia and overseas.

 The original business inspiration of Reginald Murray (RM) Williams was Dollar Mick. RM first met Dollar Mick back in the early 1930s, when he was camped out in South Australia's Gammon Ranges. Dollar Mick simply joined the Williams family in their open-air home. Inspite of having an age gap of 30 years, both these men built up an incredible rapport. Over the following months, Dollar Mick passed on his vast knowledge of leather working and crafting to RM, teaching him the 'secrets' of outback saddler and the leading stockmen's accessories still prized today. RM later said that this defining experience with Dollar Mick marked the true beginning of his life's work.

Things You Do To Your Hair

1. Using old styling tools

You want to make sure to clean out those hairy brushes, which are breeding grounds for germs and old residue — things no one wants in their hair. "Remove the hair from the brush after each styling session," 

 2. Using a rough elastic


The best type of elastic to use in your hair is something covered in fabric — a dense, thin hair tie can irritate your strands causing breakage if pulled to tightly. If you just want to get your hair out of your face, try gently pulling it back using bobby pins or claws. Anything too tight is damaging, so try to think loose.

3. Infusing hair with too many chemicals

Too many artificial chemicals are bad for any part of your body — and your hair is no exception. Too much coloring, keratin-ing, and relaxing can cause breakage and damage. Make sure you keep the number of chemical processes to a minimum, and consider establishing a routine that involves preemptive care before undergoing chemical treatments, like a scalp mask or an elasticizer — a pre-shampoo protective treatment — a couple days prior to visiting the hairdresser.

4. Setting the heat too high



Excess heat strips hair of its natural moisture, causing your cuticles to dry and snap off — leading to some thirsty-looking strands. That's why we're told not to turn the heat all the way up on our styling tools, but how do you know how hot is too hot? To start, don't turn the dial above "medium."

5. Going too long between haircuts


While picking split ends might be a great procrastinating tool, it's also a wake-up call that you're due for a trim. Over time, split ends tend to divide into even bigger split ends, causing your hair to thin and weaken. To keep hair looking healthy — and whole — try cutting 1/2-inch off your ends every month, or every other month if you're trying to grow hair long.

6. Brushing from the roots down


Brushing your locks from top to bottom can cause snags and breakage. To go about it in a gentler way, divide your hair into three-to-four-inch sections and smooth from the bottom up. To do this, grab hair a few inches from the bottom, and brush down from where your hand is. Move your hand up a few inches and repeat the process until you get to the roots.

7. Handling wet hair roughly


When hair is wet, cuticle scales can lift, making moist strands more delicate and more susceptible to breakage and split ends than dry hair. Make sure you always smooth damp hair with a wide-tooth comb. using a brush or narrow-tooth comb can be too rough because it pulls too harshly causing snaps and breakage.

8. Slathering on too many products


The last things you want to do are cause build-up and strip your hair of its natural oils. If you have fine hair, your locks will end up weighed down, creating the opposite effect of what you're trying to achieve. On natural hair, too many products can create dry strands by over-coating the cuticle and preventing moisturizing serums from getting to the center. And while thicker hair takes to products a bit better, start with less product than you think you need, building up if that amount isn't doing the trick.

9. Keeping the same shampoo for changing hair


Most women seem to think that they need to routinely switch their shampoo in order to keep locks from building up a tolerance to product. Not true, says Phillips. "Change your shampoo when hair circumstances change, for example, if color or highlights have been added." Additionally, many women tend to experience some type of hair loss during pregnancy.

10 Fashion Styling Tips for lady

Tips for Petites

Would you like to look better in your clothes? Try these simple fashion styling tips for petites to help you appear longer and leaner. It’s all about creating the illusions of more and less – more height and less bulk. Next time you’re dressing for your job or to go out on the town, work some magic and create your own illusions.

1. Dress In One Color:

 Dress all in one color from your top to your shoes. Don’t forget to match your tights or stockings to your outfit too. Dark colors slim, so try black, navy, charcoal, burgundy, deep green, or purple.

2. Wear Clothes That Fit Well

Wear garments that fit you well. Fitted or semi-fitted clothing looks better on petites than loose-fitting apparel. Avoid garments that have a lot of design ease because all that extra fabric adds bulk and can make short women look heavier than they really are.

3. Select Garments With Vertical Lines:


Select clothes with vertical lines. They don’t need to be striped. Vertical seam lines, such as princess seams, will do the trick.

4. Choose V-Shape:


Choose tops and jackets with V-shaped or U-shaped necklines. These neckline styles aid in creating the illusion of height.

5. Wear High Heels

Wear high heels. It’s the easiest way to add height. Pumps and sling-backs are terrific, but avoid shoes with ankle straps. The strap breaks up the desirable vertical line, and makes the wearer appear shorter.
If you're worried about comfort, try high heels, such as the Cole Haan brand with air technology to cushion your feet.

6. Avoid Bulky Garments

Watch out for bulky or highly textured fabrics. There’s no need to avoid texture completely, but stay away from fabrics with a lot of loft. We want to appear taller, not broader. For sweaters, thin works better than thick.

7. Avoid Oversized Handbags

Stay away from huge handbags. Oversized bags are so big that they can seem to overwhelm short women. Select purses of medium size instead so that your bag will be in proportion to your smaller frame.

8. Skip Minis

Skip the mini-skirts and mini dresses. Although minis look great on women with long, slender legs, they don’t have the same effect for shorter women. The hem of a mini-skirt worn by a petite woman falls across a thick part of the thigh, making it more noticeable and making shorter legs look even shorter.

9. Keep Belts Narrow

Keep belts slim and match them to your outfit if you want to wear a belt. Wide or contrasting belts cut the figure in half and break up the vertical illusion that we want to achieve.

10. Choose Pants With Straight Legs


Wear jeans and pants with straight legs. To keep a slim line, choose pants without cuffs, bulky pockets, or pleats.
