Up & Coming Swiss Designers

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

The fated shoe vending machine. I wonder if it is still vibrating?

The last show I went to was the Up & Coming Swiss Designers. There are so many great looks..I could write about this for ages! (No worries though, this is the last post ;))


Marissa and I started the morning with coffee and gipfeli in the VIP tent. Then I headed to the Smashboxx people who were set up giving makeovers to try a lip color (I don't wear lipstick, do you?). They used 'Delightful'...and it was. We also each got their intuitive lip-gloss as a gift which I'm in love with!

Now, on to the clothes - it was so interesting to see what designers in this country are working on as they make their way in to the fashion industry. There were 5 sets and I tried my best to condense!
(These are all of my pictures, thus you get to see my embarrassing attempt at fashion show photography which definitely improved by the end!)

The shoes weirded me out a tiny bit...

Loved the fabrics, very unique.


I was a fan of the simple but feminine silouettes.

The story of a warrior taking an inward journey and choosing to become poetic and graceful. 

And my favorite, Toujours Toi - Family  Affairs
(and when I learned how to take better pictures)


And that is all! Thanks so much for your excitement and it was so fun to give you a glimpse in to what's going on in the fashion industry here in Switzerland!

My friend, Elisa, covered the next days Swiss Textile Awards if you're interested!

And nowwww back to regular posting. Phew!

SwissTwist said...

Great post!!! that poor vending machine didn't stand a chance against us!!

I love your photos, you did a great job! .-))

SJ said...

shoes in a vending machine is the most novel thing i have ever heard of. it sounds like something you would see in japan!
making it vibrate is something i'm sure i would end up doing as well :)

kirstyb said...

Lady Grey said...

How exciting, and oh so glamorous!

Julie-Inspired said...

That must have been so much fun...I've never been to a fashion show, although when we were just in Paris it was fashion week (amazing) and we met friends of ours there that were going to like 3 shows including Chanel. Randy and I being the hippies we are, chose backpacking through Eastern Europe instead!

Rita said...

I really like lipstick too, espcially nude shades to tone down my very pinkish lips. And red is also great :)
I loved the Aluar Balagan collection, the pieces are so fabulous, love how they look a bit ethnic as well!

ellie said...

Some very interesting designs, indeed. So pretty.

I'm wondering about that vending machine too. Did you wear the flats?

Well, I have 2 ideas for a cowl scarf to remake from 3 items I don't use anymore.

Gina said...

:) :)


lucky, lucky duck!!!!! ahahahahaha

I don't wear lipstick either, usually just chapstick or gloss. I wore some for my friends wedding & it was pretty fun!

{Selma} Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Yes for Gipfeli!! :) No one should ever turn these down. haha.
Don't wear lipstick but lipgloss. Can't get enough of that stuff although I try not to overdo it.

And I love this post and the vending machine!!! :D

Can't decide which I like best yet... need to spend more time lazing around and enjoying them. :)

sweet runway pics, the clothes are fab. and never seen a show vending machine before, it would be a good idea to install one of those at the club so when your feet hurts from your heels you can wear one of those!

My dear, I could barely get past the shoe vending machine. YES, PLEASE.

A shoe vending machine-seriously? They should have those Stateside:-). Fab post! XX

this free bird said...

Wowee - this sounds like fun. And a SHOE vending maching? THAT sounds like Heaven!!

That pic of you getting the lip done is great-love your hair :)

I don't wear lipstick either, mostly because I don't know how to choose a color and fear looking like a hook job. not good.

xo,
c

MarchMusings said...

Nice photo and lipstick. I confess I'm more a lip gloss girl - doesn't require a steady hand!

Jamie said...

What beautiful clothes!

I love lipstick but can never find a color I like (pale, pale skin) so I hardly ever wear it. Sad really.

Zee said...

I absolutely love fashion! Thanks for the pics. And I can't stop laughing about the shoe vending machine!

Jess said...

Oh girl - I love your pictures. And no - I don't wear any lipstick. Always think about trying it, but not sure I'll ever wear much...

Kimia Kline said...

gorgeous! love these photos and this post.

The Many Colours of Happiness said...

I'd like the black ankle booties in E4 and some embellished flats in C6 please!!! Wow that would be a dream :)

LyddieGal said...

Tamara Nicole said...

Shoe Vending Machine?! Genius:-)

Looks like a blast, love fashion shows!

Emma said...

Thanks for sharing with us, I love Smashbox make up - especially their eyeshadow. I'm more of a lip gloss gal but seeing bright reds all over blogs these last few weeks has got me thinking! :)

Mimi said...

SOOOOO exciting!!!! I love all the pictures you shared. Some of those dresses, I would wear in a heartbeat.

Croatian_Latina said...

Love love your pictures, your experience, WOW. and I still can't believe that vending machine LOL.

Café Bellini said...

A shoe vending machine?! now that sounds interesting!

à la Modest said...

Yeah, those weird shoes look like mens' shoes. It looks like the designer didn't even try to make them fit womens' feet.

Claire Kiefer said...

Whoa--a shoe vending machine? I don't know if I think that is incredibly awesome or disgraceful, haha. And looking at these photos makes me so envious! I loooove Smashbox (wearing their smudge pot as eye shadow right now) and being surrounded by so many beautiful clothes and so much makeup and creativity would be so inspiring. I love that orangey dress too!

Punctuation Mark said...

I've been here for a while checking out your images of fashion week... love all the great shots and so jealous that you got to go... thanks for showing it!

Don said...

I'm with you on Family Affair- very nice clothes- and shoes to match. Loved the final photos- probably tricky to catch those fast moving (powerwalking) girls.
