When it comes to innovation and hands on designs, this designer certainly makes her way to the top of the list. Kristine Rodriguez’s knitwear is something that is not only amazing in its creation but also the shapes and forms she’s able to construct her garments into. All of her pieces are completely hand crafted all the way to the looming of the fabric. Rodriguez’s knitwear is all spun by hand so she has complete freedom to which ever color, style or pattern she would like for her next collection. The collection that she showed at this year’s fashion week was named The Revival Series. The show begins with bold black and white garments resembling the body’s skeletal frame. And then you move into a few strong red pieces playing off the idea of the mythical phoenix. Rodriguez then phases out her show with soft nudes and ending with angelic whites reflecting the soul and becoming stronger than once before. What wowed me about the entire show was the shapes she was able to construct with knits and a loom. Her garments consisted of floor length pencil skirts that had spotted texture, cut outs in her dresses, different slits and v cut backs on her tops, pleating on some of the skirts and tops also. Her line reminded me of a wearer that wants to stay comfortable and seem as if they didn’t want to try hard, yet, they are the best dressed in the room due to the detail, uniqueness and construction of their look. Responsive Textiles is an amazing brand, totally wearable for the everyday woman. It’s very feminine with just the right touch of edge and creativity!

Sticking to very creative and innovated designers, Dan Richters was another designer that had me on the edge of me seat throughout the entire show. I find Richters to be a true artist rather than just a designer and this is why. His collection titled Benthic went along the lines of an aquatic life form, similar to mermaids but a little darker and edgier. In his lookbook, he quotes; “I am fascinated with the ocean- particularly the ocean floor. The textures and the shapes found in this collection reflect benthic life. If there is a people that reside there, I image these are their garments.” The collection was a steel grey scale. The models walked down the runway appearing to have just crowed out of the ocean, hair wet and body misted. The garments were all hand molded silicon that took shapes as long dress, short mini body suits, two piece sets and fin-like headdresses. It was absolutely gorgeous. The texture of each piece was mouth dropping. Each garment consisted of layers of either scales, spikes, or fins. The garments hugged the models to perfection and moved so gracefully that I had no idea that the collection was constructed out of silicon until after the show and I was able to get up close to one of the models and admire the amazing molds. Between the silicon, Richters placed really fine mesh fabric for implied cut outs and darker shadows under the silvery fins and textured layers. Each piece had exposed hook and eye closures that added to the edge appeal of the collection. True artistry at its finest and a great take to a well planned out and constructed collection.

  23. Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.

  30. Christina was born in the royal castle Tre Kronor on 18 December S. 8 December] 1626. Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626. When the baby was born, it was first thought to be a boy as it was “hairy” and screamed “with a strong, hoarse voice.”she later wrote in her autobiography that, “Deep embarrassment spread among the women when they discovered their mistake.” The king, though, was very happy, stating, “She’ll be clever, she has made fools of us all!”6] From most accounts, Gustav Adolf appears to have been closely attached to his daughter, and she appears to have admired him greatly.

  32. Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
