Badgley and Mischka Jeweled Clothing
I loved the new show about jewelry and fashion that premiered this past weekend on the Oxygen Network. It's called Oh! Be Jewelled, and along with a little taste of jewelry making (I say little because the show is more about design inspiration rather than actual technique) they talked with big time designers about how they approached the design process.
My favorite part of the show was the interview with Mark Badgley and James Mischka. Now, of course, these guys are known more for their clothing than jewelry or accessories, but they talked about how jewelry influenced their designs, how they incorporated jeweled embellishments and ornate details much like those used in vintage jewelry.
As examples of what Badgley and Mischka are referring to, take a look at the trim and other details on these gowns modeled by the Olsen Twins:
Now, granted, these girls could do with aor two, but you have to admit the clothing is stunning.
