Nokia Launch the Nokia Young Fashion Designer Award 2009 with a Dress Re-construction
The countdown to the Nokia Young Fashion Designer Award 2009 kicked off today 11.00am, with an exciting dress re-construction in The Millpond, Dundrum Town Centre. The dress, created by Irish knitwear designer and NYFDA 2009 student mentor, Tim Ryan, was re-constructed on screen with one piece of wool and beamed out on the Dundrum Town Centre screens for shoppers to see.
The idea for the piece, which was filmed by up-and-coming London based Irish-artist Laura Gannon, gave onlookers a taste of how much work goes into making a single garment and in turn, how much work this years 20 NYFDA finalists have put into making their designs.
Final year students from Irelands fashion and design colleges have been tasked with producing one cutting edge design, inspired by the new, sleek and revealing Nokia Supernova collection. This brief should produce garments reflective of the handset changeable, individual, glamorous, vibrant and self expressive.
The Nokia Young Fashion Designer Award 2009 live finale will take place on Wednesday, March 25th in Dublin, where an international judging panel including top fashion blogger, Susie Lau from www.stylebubble.typepad****, Senior Menswear designer at Hermes, Brendan Mullane, Irish designer, Louise Kennedy and Godfrey Deeny, European Editor of www.fashionwiredaily**** will choose one winner from 20 finalists, after they show their creations live on the catwalk.
For an eclectic look, try this heel with a trouser in a menswear-inspired plaid.

Entertainment Tonight Season: 32 With her penchant for comfort and a fondness for suits, Ellen DeGeneres may not make it to the top of many best-dressed lists, but the daytime funny lady has undoubtedly taken the trend of menswear for women to new heights.

*******www.FTV****/videos MILAN - Designers Dean and Dan Caten are always making a statement when it comes to their runway shows for Dsquared2, even when it's menswear--the decidedly less theatrical shows during Fashion Weeks. Their cool denim, leather jackets, and funky style was paired in a back-to-school style that saw sweater vests, backpacks, and newsboy hats (we're not really sure how those fit into the mix, except to create that casual cool vibe.) And we're guessing that bad boy label, too, as many fashion publications mentioned when doing a review of the Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection. The collection also featured signature Dsquared2 style like their popular peacoats, shearling, and sportswear. Later on, the dressier suits came out in a departure from the denim.
