A Beautiful Friendship: Pat Cleveland and Stephen Burrows

Opening-Spread-3-01

In art, the presence of a live muse sets the legendary apart from the merely great: the muse elevates, breathes the active into the inanimate. In fashion design, the rigidity of boning and the sinews of fabric within the most beautifully-made garments are testament to this life within a designer's livelihood.

These collaborations have been integral to the design process from the birth of couture through to our prêt-a-porter-dominant times. Difficult though it is to...

La Bella Donna: A Tribute To Donna Summer

DS-Opening-Spread-1-01

Donna Summer not only represented a voice of a generation but revolutionized the music industry in the 70's with her fusion of Disco-Techno. Her powerful seductive voice and sophisticated confident style always provided us with a rare statement of art, power, control and beauty which equals genius to B.Couleur.

Fortunately, over the past few seasons, several creative brands have begun to design wet-weather footwear that toes the line between functional and fabulous.  Now it’s possible to look pulled together from head to...

Desert Flower: A Film About Beauty That's Beyond Skin Deep

DesertFlowerPosterDesert Flower isn’t your typical fashion film.  Based on top model Waris Dire’s autobiography of the same name, Desert Flower charts Dire’s triumphant journey from the nomadic life in Somalia, to international supermodeldom, to her current role as a UN Ambassador and award-winning human rights activist.

The movie, like Dire, isn’t wrapped in crepe-de-chine-clad fantasy.  It’s focused on the triumph of a woman’s spirit, rather than the gift of extraordinary beauty and...

Looks Inspired by Style Icon Donyale Luna

Donyale_Luna_BCouleur_White_FinalShe may have been born Peggy Ann Freeman in Detroit, but like her adopted name, Donyale Luna was otherworldly.  The ethereal beauty crafted an exotic personal mythology that allowed her to transcend both her environment and era, to leap from the Ebony Fashion Fair runway to those of Paris, Milan, London, and New York.  Eventually, she captured the ultimate supermodel prize:  the cover of American Vogue.  Luna’s Vogue cover was the first to feature a Black woman and, as a...
