This week, instead of focusing on the top trends in Hollywood or the best makeup for the cheapest price, I want to focus on the behind the scenes aspect of fashion. Most people know the names of famous designers such as Coco Chanel, Marc Jacobs or Michael Kors whom are very popular in the world of fashion. However, names such as Karl Lagerfeld, Zac Posen or Isaac Mizrahi are less likely to be heard, but should still be credited. According to Ranker these are some of the most famous costume designers in the world, among various others that most people are not aware of. However, this week I want to focus on just a few that may be forgotten to learn more about the behind the scenes work these amazing designers complete.

Karl Lagerfeld was a German designer who focused on styles in Paris.He was a fashion designer, a designer, a photographer and a costume designer.

Zac Posen was an American fashion designer, designer, businessman and costume designer who was stationed mostly in New York City.

Finally, Isaac Mizrahi was a film director, a producer and a costume designer stationed in New York City as well.

These are just three of the many talented designers featured on a list of 100 different designers around the world. Visit The Ranker List to check out the rest of these incredibly talented people who help keep us in style world-wide.

St. Patrick’s Day Style

It’s that time if year again. Break out your favorite green shirts and socks, the necklaces and sashes. Many people get overwhelmed when events come up that are “color coded”. Personally, I used to be intimidated by a day in which everyone wore the same color, one color, green. Now green is not my favorite color and it is definitely a color that is not very popular in my closet but I learned that there are many different ways to still take part in the fun without so much green. There are many ways to be festive in a subtle green look, or even accented other colors like white to give it the St. Patrick’s Day pizzazz.

There are plenty ways to be festive for different events without being restricted to one color and not just for St. Patrick’s Day. I also love to check out Pinterest to see what the outfit choices are for this year and quick make up tricks, even cool nail designs for the day. So don’t feel restricted by a color, embrace it and look around to find the best look for you work arty, school event or even town’s parade.
