Trend-ology

The museum entity of The Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T. to those “in the biz”), currently houses “Trend-ology”, an exhibit following trends in fashion for the last 250 years.  Long before Marc Jacobs sent flannel clad models down the runway elevating “grunge” to high fashion status, and “normcore” made mom-jeans a must have for the hipster set, the buzzed about trends included “knitwear”, “yellow”, and “exoticism”.   The exhibit explores the cultural shifts at the heart of these trends, and- lest you think this sounds too educational for weekend- there are lots and lots and lots of pretty clothes to look at!  I didn’t take many pictures during my visit, because I am the worst, but there are some great shots on the Trend-ology site for a glimpse of what’s on view.

Miz Mooz Plans Your Evening

Inspired by: Color!

A woman of extremes, my looks fall into two basic categories a)black on black on black, and b)pattern on pattern on pattern.  I have found myself channeling a)Morticia Adams or b)a 5 year old who dresses herself, neither of which is the look I’m going for.  In the interest of expanding my sartorial horizons,  I’m taking cues from these adorable dish towels I found on Etsy to build an outfit.  Witness

Rhoda these are the days

I sneaked some pattern in there with the polka dot hat, and as usual, it all revolves around the shoes (which I have in 2 colors because CUTE!) Anyone else in a fashion rut??  Tell me how you cope.

The Collection: Spring 2014

I usually don’t like to play favorites with our collections, but if I had to rank the last few lines, spring 2014 would land pretty high on the list!  In true Miz Mooz form, it is colorful, quirky, and full of personality, and considering our design inspiration, it couldn’t have gone any other way.  From a now defunct favorite brunch spot in Queens, to office wide Buddy Holly sing-a-longs, and all girl motorcycle gangs to the graffiti splashed and tattoo heavy streets of Brooklyn, we’ve pulled seemingly incongruous design elements form our daily lives into a varied collection that can only be described as 100% Miz Mooz.  Want to know how we came up with our designs?
