Paris is abuzz with preparation for Haute Couture Week which kicks off on Monday. As international press, editors and high brow couture clients prepare to enjoy the bi-annual extravaganza of fashion supersights, from the likes of John Galliano at Dior, Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, Valentino and Julien Macdonald at Givenchy, some fashionistas are simply gearing up for a week of seriously glamorous parties.

First on the agenda is ex-Scherrer designer Ritu Beri, who will get everybody in the mood with a soiree on Sunday night to celebrate her autumn/winter collection. Next up, ex-Yves Saint Laurent muse Loulou de la Falaise is expecting 200 of her very closest friends and press pals to celebrate the jewellery range she designed to accompany the couture line that she launched in February. Wednesday night's highlight will be a glittering bash thrown by the Gucci-owned Boucheron label - expect a full Gucci turnout, including Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and Tom Ford. Finally, Paris' fashion governing body, the Chambre Syndicale, will host the final evening's gala which will see between 700-800 of the world's most fashionable players sipping the best Champagne and nibbling canapés in the gardens of the Sacretariat.

Tips On coco chanel dress

Make sure clothes fit you properly. Wearing clothes that are too baggy can easily add the illusion of five to 10 pounds to your frame and make it look as though you are hiding behind something. On the other hand, wearing clothes that fit properly -- not too baggy and not too tight -- exudes confidence.

Windows 2000 & Windows NT 4 Source Code Leaks

Thu, 12 Feb 2004 18:08:00 GMT

First they stole Valve's Half-Life 2 source code last fall, then they hit get their hands on Windows source code? It's a bit early for April Fool's kind of joke, don't you think?

"It would appear that two packages are circulating on the internet, one being the source code to Windows 2000, and the other being the source code to Windows NT." via Neowin.

Is history repeating itself over again? Hopefully not! This could be pretty harmful for Microsoft.

Just like Stefano Demiliani pointed out, there is an official word from Microsoft about all this.

Apparently they were already able to trace the code leak to Microsoft's partner Mainsoft, which had licensed the code for one of its cross-platform products. The code supposedly represents Windows 2000 SP1 and was somehow lifted from a development machine. via BetaNews.

Is Buying A Designer Handbag Wasting Money?

By Lee MacRae

Women today, young and old alike, work hard to create a personal fashion style in their appearance. And one of the ways to complete a fashion statement is a great handbag by a designer like Baby Phat or L.A.P.A.. But one of the worries is the money they may have to pay to get one. Are you getting real bang for your buck?

For most people, of course, they want to make sure their hard earned money is used wisely. They need to know if a Alan Stuart handbag or purse is worth the expanse. Is going to last? The short answer is, yes they are worth. And why is that true?

Because designer handbag or purse are usually made from the finest materials. A purse or bag by Isabella Fiore will normally only use leather that is top grade, that is supple, beautiful and long lasting. So, although you will be paying for the name you'll also be buying a top quality product. Still wondering?

Want a hint to know what you're getting? Top designer handbags will always have a fine lining material inside. The cheaper products will not have that. Makers of cheap products are always looking to lower the costs. As a result, you will find cheaper linings and even cheaper hardware. They will wear out and fall apart in no time. Top full grain leather's come from top grade hides and have no imperfections. These top grain leather's are extremely durable. It is long-lasting and over time, develops a rich patina that increases natural beauty. The skins of young cattle are usually used for full grain handbags and are prized for their smooth texture and fine quality.

So will you get full value for your money. When you buy a purse or handbag made by Tommy Hilfiger or American West? Yes indeed. You will be acquiring a quality product that you can be proud of.

Hints About chanel satinette

Throughout the early 20th century, practically all high fashion originated in Paris, and to a lesser extent London. Fashion magazines from other countries sent editors to the Paris fashion shows. Department stores sent buyers to the Paris shows, where they purchased garments to copy and openly stole the style lines and trim details of others. Both made-to-measure salons, and ready-to-wear departments, featured the latest Paris trends,and adapted to the stores' assumptions about the lifestyles and pocket books of their targeted customers. At this time in fashion history the division between haute couture and ready-to-wear was not sharply defined. The two separate modes of production were still far from being competitors, and, indeed, they often co-existed in houses where the seamstresses moved freely between made-to-measure and ready-made.

During the late twentieth century fashions began to criss-cross international boundaries with rapidity. Popular Western styles were adopted all over the world, and many designers from outside of the West had a profound impact on fashion. Synthetic materials such as Lycra, Spandex, and viscose became widely-used, and fashion, after two decades of looking to the future, once again turned to the past for integration. Currently, modern fashion has seen a reference to technology such as designers Hussein Chalayan and Miuccia Prada who have introduced industrial textiles and modern technology into their fall collections.
