Background Info:

Massimo Giorgetti was born in Rimini Italy in 1977. He developed a passion for fashion at an early age in life, after high school he left behind his qualifications in accounting and began working for important boutiques and show rooms in Riccione. Finally after working for important boutiques and show rooms in 2008 he joined in a partnership with Paolini Group and in 2009 is own brand, MSGM, was born. He uses his admiration for contemporary art, indie music, and street style as some of his inspirations for his brand MSGM.

What We Like About MSGM:

What we like about the brand MSGM is the fun and tasteful use of colour in their clothing.The modern styles Massimo Giorgetti uses in his pieces and the fun designs and patterns he uses to put on his clothing make them very likeable. The colour, design, and style make his brand shine a little bit brighter. We also like the fact that all of Massimo Giorgetti’s pieces seem very wearable and comfortable to do every day things in. He also makes his pieces match up with each other even though they have completely different patterns and opposing colours. He definitely shows that his brand is meant for people who want to be noticed or else his designs wouldn’t be so fun and creative.

Here are some of Massimo Giorgetti’s latest creations from his website:

Congratulations Designers!

Last Wednesday marked the 2nd fashion show at RSOF — and while we wait on the photos from our incredible photographer Eriver Hijano — I want to congratulate all of RSOF’s young talent on a job well done.  As many parents and onlookers remarked, it’s astounding to see such improvement from last semester.  Excellent work, ladies!  I am so impressed with your skill level and imagination.  Have a great summer to those I won’t be seeing, and to my new and returning students this summer, I look forward to designing with you soon!

I couldn’t resist. I showed this video to my classes in February when we were researching design themes: Sarah Burton’s genius SS13 collection for Alexander McQueen. Check out the runway video below and read Tim Blanks’ Style.com review here.

The Final Countdown — 7 weeks til showtime

After a few weeks of holiday interruptions, we’ve entered the final stretch here at RSOF. Students are finishing up their samples and beginning to work with final fabric. It’s a little nerve-wracking because, as veteran students can attest, perfect muslins don’t necessarily equal perfect finished garments.  And your sometimes friend, the seam ripper, can quickly become your worst enemy… Eeeek! But based on what I’ve seen, these students have come such a long way in a short time – I have no doubt they’ll show that seam ripper who’s boss.

In China there’s an expression I like – jiào jiào. It means “add oil” – a reference to mechanics/engines or something – it’s what you yell courtside to cheer on your favourite team and will them that final burst of energy to get the job done. Out of all the vocabulary I remember from my years in China, this one always stuck in my head.  It’s catchy, no?

So to you, students, jiào jiào! We’re going to blow minds at the Fashion Show.

This is Sarah, signing off
