Fashion Icon Friday: Sarah Burton 

Sarah Burton is the 37 year old English fashion designer who is currently the creative director for the fashion label Alexander McQueen. Sarah started with McQueen as an intern and later became his assistant during the 90’s. In 2000 she was appointed Head of Womenswear, in which she designed couture dresses for Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, and Gwyneth Paltrow. Following McQueen’s death in 2010, Sarah replaced him as creative director.

Sarah is most famously known for designing the wedding dress Catherine Middleton wore when she married Prince William. She also designed the dress Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, wore to the wedding, as well as several dresses that Kate wore to other wedding festivities. 

In 2011, Sarah was named Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards and, in 2012, she was on Time Magazine’s List of Top 100 Influential People in the World

Sarah Burton’s work is inspiring and artistic; she creates collections those of which Alexander McQueen would most certainly be proud.

Fashion Icon Friday: Daphne Guinness 

Who can say they are a muse for Karl Lagerfeld, BFF’s with the late Alexander McQueen, used to party with Andy Warhol, modeled in the exclusive Tom Ford women’s collection show, and had a MAC cosmetic line inspired by them?

Daphne Guinness can, and that doesn’t even scratch the surface of what an impact she has had on the fashion, art, and film worlds. Daphne has quite the family background; she’s an heir to the Guinness—yes the beer makers—family and her mother was a muse for Man Ray and Dali. Daphne followed in her mother’s footsteps, as she has been a muse to countless designers and artists—even Lady Gaga has said she’s inspired by her.

Daphne doesn’t just inspire fashion and art, but gives back to other artists, theaters, and libraries. She has participated in a number of charity events and fashion shows. Daphne has also been an artist herself, as well as an actress, and produced short films. Third Wave Fashion got to check out the exhibit at The Museum at FIT devoted to the amazing fashion pieces of Daphne Guinness.

She truly emulates the phrase “Fashion Icon.”

We loved Lady Gaga’s outfit for the opening of Gaga’s Workshop this past Monday. Don’t you?

We’ll give you one guess as to what Gaga’s new perfume will be named.::: Drumroll please::: MONSTER. Shocker!
In case you haven’t heard; about a year ago Lady Gaga released a statement that her new fragrance will contain a touch of blood and semen, but now she reports that you’ll just smell like an expensive hooker. Sounds lovely, don’t you think?

No, we’re not a Lady Gaga fan page HOWEVER, we do love a great fashion video and when it comes to making a statement, GAGA’s got everyone beat.
