Slide 1: The Five Fashion Capitals and their designers by: Andrea
Slide 2: Intro Fashion is a lifestyle that everyone makes for themselves. It is imagination, creativity, opinions, feelings, and more all put together. It is the clothing we wear and the way we portray it and ourselves. It is the freedom to be able to express ourselves through style.

Slide 8: Emilio Pucci Emilio Pucci de Barsento was born in Italy in 1914. In 1949 he opened a boutique in Capri and during that time he introduced Capri pants. He retired from “active design work” in 1990. In 1992 Emilio Pucci died at the age of 78. After Emilio died, Marchese Alessandro Pucci de Barensto, his son, took over. Alessandro died in the year 2000 in a car accident. After Alessandro died his sister Laudomia took over for a while, and then it was bought by another company and has been passed on through the care of many different designers.

Slide 10: Paris, France Paris, France is an important fashion capital because it is mostly known for it's sense of fashion as well as the origin of many famous fashion designers
Slide 11: Elie Saab Elie Saab showed interests in dressmaking at the age of nine, when he was young he spent most of his time sketching designs of dresses and making patterns for his sisters out of his mother’s table cloths and curtains. In 1982 when he was 18 years old he opened his first store, in Lebanon, with ten employees. He began with evening gowns and wedding dresses. Elie’s most recent fashion was his Autumn-Winter 2008/2009 Ready To Wear Collection, and it took place Saturday March 1st.
Slide 12: Lacoste In 1927 Rene Lacoste was a tennis player and he was “promised an alligator suitcase if he won every important match of the season.” So when he won every important tennis match, he also won the nickname “The Crocodile”. In 1933 he and Andre Gillier (the owner of a the largest French knitwear firm of that time) set up a company to manufacture Lacoste designs with the crocodile logo embroidered on them. Lacoste designed this logo for himself so that he would be able to wear it during his tournaments.
Slide 13: London, England London, England has many famous places that attracts visitors from all around the world. Madame Tussaud’s wax museum is a museum that contains a collection of waxwork models of celebrities that are incredibly lifelike. Next door to Madame Tussaud’s wax museum is the London Planetarium, where people are able to take a “virtual reality trip through space.” Another famous attraction in London is the National Gallery, where there are permanent collections of huge paintings and sculptures. In London there are a lot of fashion designers and labels that continue to keep growing.
Slide 14: Punk Fashion Many designers use punk Fashion as well as designer labels. A few of them are, Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Erin Tabrar, and Hot Topic. Punk is a style that originated in London in the 1970’s. It is based on the “music, clothing, hairstyle, jewelry and attitude of the punk subculture.” The Punk Fashion that Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren created, as partners, revolved around the idea of ripped jeans, torn t- shirts, and worn/torn leather jackets. Punk fashion varies around the world, but no matter the type of punk fashion, it always seems to peak an interest in the minds of many.
Slide 15: Amana Amana was created by two women, Helen Wood, and Erin Tabrar. Wood and Tabrar are both twenty-four years old and worked in many different places with designers before they met up with each other again and realized they shared the same vision for fashion. Erin said, “ We wanted to create clothes that marry beautiful design with ethical production practices and it seemed like the perfect time. We found ourselves in the right position to set up on our own at a time when ethical fashion was very much in the public eye.”
Slide 16: Tokyo, Japan Tokyo, Japan has its own sense of popular style, as much as every other fashion capital. It is said that Tokyo is a fashion capital because of the importance fashion holds in Japan and also because fashion is becoming more popular in countries all over the world.
Slide 17: Rei Kuwakubo Rei Kuwakubo is a woman who owns the ‘comme des garcons’ label. She is not trained as a fashion designer, but she studied fine arts and literature, and therefore communicates to her patternmakers as to what her ideas are.
