"A Gentleman Caller" fashion editorial allows us to take a second look at glamour by Belinda Martin

In this editorial, "A Gentleman Caller", our team wanted to take a more cinematic approach and pay homage to a time when glamour was more common. Inspired by movies and the recent attention the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) gave to the men's fashion week here in New York, I pulled from designers who are truly known for their romantic style. Some of the designers we worked with include: Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, and Diane von Fürstenberg.

Lucy's Magazine Vol.16 Cover +fashion editorial by Belinda Martin

I Dream of Flowers

Styling Lucy's Magazine Vol. 16 Cover and Fashion Editorial 

After going to my yearly pilgrimage to see the Metropolitan Museum of Art's fashion exhibit http://www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions/listings/2015/china-through-the-looking-glass, I was fully inspired to work with model/actress Daphne Zelle and to design several of the headpieces for this latest fashion editorial Je Rêve des Fleurs. Continuing my passion of costume design, I used a combination of new, old, and artificial flowers to achieve the desired effect for these headpieces.
Also, I got to collaborate with several designers some including favorites such as Dolce and Gabbana, Nanette Lepore, and Valentina Kova http://www.valentinakova.com.
And finally the perfect accessory in this summertime heat was the floral cocktails made by mixologist, Dani Deluna of http://homebargirl.com.

Lucy's Magazine Vol.15 Cover +fashion editorial by Belinda Martin

Summer Style 2015

Summer style in New York is always a little tricky but this year, temperatures have varied greatly from a day to day. My suggestion on how to dress chic is never be without a great layering piece.
While working with Lucy's Magazine, I had the opportunity to pull from some great designers such as Pucci, Kate Spade, and Clover Canyon.
And tying all the looks together we used jewelry from Dinosaur Designs http://www.dinosaurdesigns.com.au
Then to complete the looks we used jackets from designers pulled from my favorite new store Anthom, http://www.shopanthom.com

Below is a little preview of the cover and beginning of the fashion editorial I styled, but to see the whole story go to the Women's Fashion section of my website.

Recently, I've been reading, Vivienne Westwood by Vivienne Westwood and Ian Kelly. As a high school student, Vivienne Westwood's fashion from her punk rock days of making and styling the band, The Sex Pistols, inspired me to make my own unique changes to my wardrobe. Years later, while reading this book, I continue to appreciate her passionate spirit. Not only does her fashion styles continue to inspire me but through her blog: Climate Revolution, she has inspired 1000s of others to give money and support causes that help the environment. Her life has definitely been about fashion with a political purpose. However, her success wasn't overnight, through this book you see what a loyal and hard working person she was and continues to be. Even now, as Dame Vivenne Westwood, she is still out working on her passions and deticated to her own personal esthetic. This book is passionate, political, and give fashion a purpose.
