Develop Charisma and Become More Likable
Beautiful, chic, intelligent, and charismatic, Paquin was herself the best publicist for her own style. She always wore her own designs, and, widely admired by the public, was the first woman to become a fashion icon, establishing the precedent for Gabrielle Chanel. Equally acclaimed for her business skills, she received numerous awards and appointments, all firsts for a woman in her time. In 1900 her fellow couturiers selected her to head their first collective public display of couture at the great Paris Universal Exposition. She was awarded the Order of Leopold II of Belgium in 1910 and the prestigious L gion d'honneur in the field of commerce in 1913, and was elected president of the Chambre syndicale de la couture, the official organization of Parisian couturiers, in 1917.
The early Greeks were very concerned about their physical appearance and celebrated the human form. The depictions of Minoans living on the Greek island of Crete and Mycenaeans living on the Greek mainland from 3000 to 1200 b.c.e. indicate these cultures idealized the human figure. Both men and women are drawn with slim figures, tiny waists encircled by metal girdles, and flowing black hair. With the exception of the tiny waists, ancients Greeks living from 800 to 146 b.c.e. held the human body in similar esteem. Greeks, especially those living in the state of Sparta, in central Greece, exercised regularly to keep their minds and bodies fit.
On the other hand, better and meticulous personal hygiene emerged and more attention was paid to personal grooming. Sophisticated toilet and bathroom systems were built and the adoption of the bathing tradition of the Roman era was widespread. Public baths became available in most parts of Europe almost round the clock. The use of cosmetics and make-up also became important especially for women who had a strict code of honour but at the same time were expected to look beautiful for men's admiration. The English invented eye shadow in the 13th century and with it the fad for makeup. The mirror also emerged as an important accessory for both men and women.
Mainbocher's admiration of Madeleine Vionnet is evident in his 1930s bias-cut evening dresses. His 1932 collection of cotton evening dress shocked Paris. Instead of satin and velvet, he chose checked gingham, linen toweling, and cotton pique to create dramatic, floor-length gowns with trendy halter necklines. This collection solidified his reputation for evening wear.
Much of what popularly passes for the history of body piercing is in fact fictitious. In the 1970s, the Los Angeles resident Doug Malloy, an eccentric and wealthy proponent of piercing, set forth with charismatic authority a set of historical references connecting contemporary Western body piercing to numerous ancient practices. He declared, for example, that ancient Egyptian royalty pierced their navels (consequently valuing deep navels), Roman soldiers hung their capes from rings through their nipples, the hafada (a piercing through the skin of the scrotum) was a puberty rite brought back from the Middle East by French legionnaires, and that the guiche (a male piercing of the perineum) was a Tahitian puberty rite performed by respected transvestite priests. No anthropological accounts bear out these claims.
The brands formerly known as mass fashion brands, like Zara, H&M and Top Shop, have gone through a dramatic change in the last few years. These changes have been rapid and innovative and the brands seem relentless in innovating new retail and branding techniques. For example, while the UK's Top Shop is busy taking fashion retail to the homes of fashionable Brits with its 'Top Shop To-Go' service, France's Naf Naf distributes free postcards to consumers and tourists, with images of gorgeous models in the latest Naf Naf creations and Dorothy Perkins hosts special customer product discount events in its stores, along with free cocktails served by charismatic sales representatives. Also, low-priced UK fashion brand Primark, which for a long time was regarded as one of the lowest status fashion brands, is now a favourite for those attending the London Fashion Week. Top Shop also currently has catwalk shows at the London Fashion Week, alongside major luxury brands like Burberry.
Few words are as ubiquitous in the contemporary mass media as glamour. 'The new glamour burns bright' headlined Interview in March 1997, while Elle of December 1996 tempted readers with the following cover title 'Glamour The people who live it - the clothes that scream it - the make-up that makes it'. Yet quite what glamour is frequently remains unclear. When fashion and women's magazines from time to time conduct enquiries into the meaning of glamour, they invariably seek opinions from a range of experts and celebrities, whose views are strikingly contradictory. Confusion arises over the gender connotations of glamour, whether it is an intrinsic (charismatic) phenomenon or a manufactured one, and whether it is permanent or temporary. In addition there is disagreement over its application to age ranges, places and situations. Such is the lack of common ground that it is tempting to agree with lexicographer Eric Partridge who, as long ago as 1947, included glamour in his list of 'vogue...
Ladies should remember that men look to the effect of dress in setting off the figure and countenance of a lady, rather than to its cost. Few men form estimates of the value of ladies' dress. This is subject for female criticism. Beauty of person and elegance of manners in woman will always command more admiration from the other sex than costliness of clothing.
Finds in remote areas have added to our understanding of production and commerce relating to silk textiles. Sir Aurel Stein found in Western China a strip of undyed silk inscribed by hand stating the origin, dimensions, weight, and price. A seal impression designates its origin in Shandong province in Northeast China. Other finds established the standard selvage-to-selvage width of Han silk, at between 17 h and 19 h inches (from 45 to 50 centimeters). At Loulan, in the Tarim Basin in the far Northwest of modern China (Xinjiang province), excavated by Stein (1906-1908 and 1913-1914), Han figured silk textile fragments (datable to the third century c.e. or earlier) were found together with an early example of slit tapestry woven in wool. The latter may be a precursor of the later kesi slit tapestry in silk. Finds at Noin-Ula, in northern Mongolia, dated second century c.e., give further evidence of the widespread exchange of silks throughout Asia. Although details of the trade are yet...
The other and much bigger reason recently is the rise of the so-called Charisma boom ( Karisma in Japanese). Karisma is applied to top creative designers in the fields of fashion design, shop merchandising, hair styling and other creative fields. Increasingly, many Urakara-kuns look to these designers as mentors and role models for the type of people they would like to become. Recently these creative
Nineteenth and early-twentieth-century excavations at Saqqara, Akhmim, Hawarah, Karanis, and other sites by Theodor Graf, Wladimir Bock, Gaston Maspero, Sir Flinders Petrie, and other Egyptologists contributed to the textile collections of European museums. However, the impact of Coptic textiles on the history of clothing, fashion, art, and archaeology can best be understood by examining the career of the charismatic, but controversial, French Egyptologist Albert Gayet (1856-1916). He collected tens of thousands of textiles between 1895 and 1910, primarily from Antinoe (ancient Antinoopolis), but also from Akhmim, Sheikh-Shata, Deir-el-Dyk, and Dronkah. Gayet believed he had discovered at Antinoe . . . an efflorescent civilization to rival Pompeii.
The 1920s and 1930s were Molyneux's heyday he dressed members of the social elite including actress Getrude Lawrence and Princess Marina of Greece. During the 1920s, he echoed the changing moral attitudes about divorce by ending his 1928 collection with two wedding dresses one for the traditional bride and the other for the growing population of second-time brides. His designs of the 1920s and 1930s won him the admiration of fashion luminaries Christian Dior and Pierre Balmain. Balmain was his apprentice during the late 1930s.
Shop staff at Shibuya109 are the mentors for Ko-Gals. They are part of the so-called Charisma boom ( Karis-ma in Japanese). Leaders in the fields of fashion design, shop merchandising, hair styling and cosmetics design all have karisma. A lot of Ko-Gals want to become like the shop staff at 109 but it is a fantasy based on the perceived glamour of the job rather than the actual work of merchandising. In reality, they have not really thought much about their future. It is all about having fun and spending money now.
Early Egyptians are credited as one of the first groups to improve their lives and deaths through the use of fragrance and fragrance ingredients, particularly blended for burning during religious services and burial. Historical references cite Ishmaelite traders who, in 2000 B.C.E., bore aromatic treasures to eager customers in Egypt via what was known as the Incense Road. Considered more precious than gold, flowers, herbs, and spices, perfumes were an expression of exaltation and admiration. The importance of perfumes gradually reached far beyond Egypt thanks to traders, crusaders, and shifting populations who took their precious fragrances with them. This was a fortuitous turn of events for the future of fragrance.
Beene had shown a special interest in lace, for its combination of sheerness and strength along with its ability to stretch. In the late 1980s he began utilizing strategically placed sheer and cutout panels, especially in his evening clothes, culminating in the matte-wool-jersey-and-sequins lace-insertion gowns of 1991, which exemplify the exacting cut and technical intricacy of his work. His spiraling designs, which consider the body in the round rather than using flat pieces and treating the front and back as separate entities, reveal his admiration for and study of the work of the French couturier Madeleine Vionnet.
Gal-os used to be mostly groups of boys in universities. Now, even high school boys form such groups. Most are into organizing parties and events. These parties are a focus and unifier for those involved, emphasising the group. Being one of the main party organizers also carries a status that brings admiration from the girls attached to the same group.
