My fashion crush on Christian Siriano is no secret. (Click here, you’ll see!)

So it’s only natural that his Spring ’11 collection is one of the first I share from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.

Fashion Designer Launches iPhone App

DONNA KARAN IPHONE APP

You’ve probably checked out the Chanel iPhone app, or maybe the one from Vogue’s Style.com.

Now Donna Karan has one too.

Launched yesterday, it coincides with her Fall 2009 Collection delivery.

And compared to other glam-themed apps, we hear that it’s being pitched as a “unique vehicle of woman to woman communication.”

Apparently, through the application, Karan talks fashion and personal passions, sharing everything from items she loves and chats with friends, to her recent vacation photos from Africa.

Get the Donna Karan app here.

M.A.C Signs on with THISDAY

Maybe you’ve never heard of THISDAY, but I’m sure you’ve heard of M.A.C.

In an awesome responsible corporate citizenship move, the makeup company has teamed up with THISDAY’s Africa Rising all star-event.

Christina Aguilera and Seal will headline a star-studded line up from the world of music and fashion, including folks like Naomi Campbell, Alek Wek, Tyson Beckford, Oluchi and Liya Kebede.

The M.A.C PRO Team will be on hand to create the looks for over 70 models, including Naomi and Alek, for a mind-blowing, four catwalk shows during this special evening.

Africa Rising is designed to raise awareness for African issues by finding “sustainable solutions” rather than by simply identifying the “problems” facing the continent.

 

THISDAY comes off tomorrow at the Royal Albert Hall, London.


 


Italian Fashion House Hires African Designers

I’m a sucker for diversity.

So I’m definitely happy about this new development.

Italian fashion house, Romeo Gigli, is hiring African designers with a dream.

They’ll be creating a menswear collection–which Gigli is developing to add “an international influence to its clothes,” according to a Reuters report.

When the six young folk from Ghana, Senegal and Kenya join the creative team at Gigli later this year, they’ll be hashing out a 2009/2010 autumn/winter collection.

It includes 25-30 pieces and will be called “Romeo Gigli Lab.”

The big collection reveal is set for January along and will be presented with Romeo Gigli’s featured collection.

The fashion house is also looking to hire aspiring designers from Jordan and China in the future.

 

 

Fabulous Thought for Today

I have to think of words to put my style into. I would say kind of urban gypsy, because I collect things, accessories, from all over the world [Asia, Africa, Brazil], and that is definitely what, for me, helps make an outfit my own. – Fergie
