Ed Hardy - Tattoo Clothing

Don Ed Hardy is known as "the godfather of modern tattoo", for his sophistication, depth and sense of experimentation. California native Don Ed Hardy is recognized around the world for his technical brilliance and mesmerizing imagery. Don Ed Hardy pulls from life experience to meld American, Japanese, Cholo, tattoo, surf and hotrod iconography. This broad spectrum of taste and experience, coupled with an ongoing investigation of various art histories and a mastery of technique, give his work a unique range and depth.
Don Ed Hardy is a painter, printmaker and tattoo artist. Fascinated by tattoos since childhood, Hardy has become a master of his craft while continuing his work in the more traditional mediums of painting and drawing.
In 2000, he completed a 500 foot long scroll painting of 2000 dragons in honor of the turn of the millennium and the Dragon year. The scroll has been exhibited at Track 16 Gallery, Santa Monica, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver, the Cuenca Bienal in Ecuador and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco. 

Don Ed Hardy curated the exhibition, "Pierced Hearts and True Love", which was shown at The Drawing Center in New York in September 1995 and traveled to several other museums. His work is represented in the collections of The Honolulu Academy of Art, The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu, The San Francisco Fine Arts Museum Achenbach Collection, and the University of Colorado Fine Art Galleries.Christian Audigier.


Ed Hardy acum in Romania !At age 19, Christian Audigier was called the “king of jeans” by Sportswear International  magazine for his creative design work, elaborate parties, and his unprecedented denim museum in Paris, which paid homage to some of his favorite stars including Elvis Presley and Steve McQueen. He worked with Levi’s, Fiorucci, Diesel, Bisou Bisou, American Eagle Outfitters, Naf Naf, Kookai, Liberto, Lee, and most recently Von Dutch. It has been an American rock-and-roll journey for this brand building powerhouse and now at age 45, Audigier is known the world over as an undeniable fashion designer, lifestyle brand visionaire, and celebrity.

Ed Hardy. Inspired by the youth of America, vintage-inspired fashion, Hollywood stardom, and motorcycle and tattoo culture, it is no surprise that Audigier was motivated by the artwork of Ed Hardy, the “godfather of tattoo”, then purchased the rights to his artwork in order to bring tattoo culture into the world of fashion.
Since December 2004, Audigier has already brought legendary tattoo genius Ed Hardy to new heights. The cleverly designed t-shirts, denim and accessories reflect Audigier’s own fast-paced lifestyle and passion for color. To date, Audigier has signed the Ed Hardy motorcycle manufacturing deal, produced and distributed the collectible Ed Hardy energy drink, launched a brand new retail store on Melrose, obtained full international distribution of the Ed Hardy lifestyle brand, and generated over $5M in sales to date. Needless to say, Audigier will launch more than four new Ed Hardy lifestyle product categories in the coming year, including housewares.


A rebel with a cause, Audigier is setting out to create yet another global sensation. By incorporating vintage-inspired contemporary styles with tattoo-cultural themes, Audigier will undoubtedly reach the masses once again. What is his trick? Keeping the world on its toes and taking his work to extremes.

In January 2005, Audigier rose like a phoenix from the ashes when he decided to publicly announce that he had parted ways with Von Dutch on national TV in France, only to promote the launch of his newest clothing line.

Whenever you are looking to primp yourself up into a sex kitten, one great way to do it is via Ed Hardy swimwear.  Not only is this swimwear something for the sex kittens out there but honestly, it is designed very well and looks spectacular on.  One thing that I really do not like about this particular type of swimwear is going to be the fact that it is only for really, really thin women.
If you are not a stick, I do not think that you will really like Ed Hardy swimwear and if you do not want to be totally sexy – you might want to head on over to another brand of swimsuit.  Ed Hardy is certainly a talented designer but he is a designer that likes to design for a specific type of woman and not all of us fit that mold!

So all of you super models out there!  Get yourself some Ed Hardy swimwear this year and I can promise that you will be all of the talk on the beach!

Harem Pants - How to Wear this Fashion Trend

If you don’t have a pair of harem or peg-legged pants hanging in your wardrobe by now then the chances are you have been hibernating all winter... :)

Any fashionista worth their salt will be wearing one or both of these tricky trends for the Spring Summer 2011 season.

Rules for Wearing Harem Pants

Using both Arabic (harem-style) and Asian (fisherman’s pants) influences, ultra-modern dropped-crotch pants have ruled the runways now for two seasons. Believe it or not, teamed with the right pieces this year's harem pants can be figure flattering and classy to wear. No longer quite the billowy trousers of 2008, affordable sleeker styles in light fabrics with a leaner silhouette have hit the high street stores from Zara to Top Shop to Reiss, ready for the spring summer season. Baggy at the crotch and slim at the ankles, follow some easy fashion tips to wear your new harem pants with style:

•Don’t go too loose at the crotch or baggy in the middle. Opt for a style than is leaner, especially if you are under 5' 3". There are a number of variations on the harem theme so keep trying until you find one that flatters your shape.
•Harem pants in light drapey fabrics are the most flattering. Try silk or cotton jersey. According to Grazia, magazine of February 9th, 2009, in “Harems: Yes You Can!”, satin and wool versions are best avoided as they can look like nappies.
•Set off the bagginess of the trouser with high-heels. Must-have accessories are a pair of gladiator sandals or strappy stilettos, the higher the better.
•When it comes to up top, think cropped tailored jackets or a fitted boyfriend blazer.
•Stay slim on top to counter-balance the fullness of the pants. Wear fitted tops, not baggy ones. If you have trouble finding a look that works for you, then try one of the seasons slouchy harem-style jumpsuits instead.
•For a more classic take, pair tailored harems with a pussy-bow or frilly blouse.
•Add a wide, chunky belt for an added casual style.
•Choose pants that are cropped just below the knee for day-wear and go for longer styles (cropped just above the ankles) for night time.
•For harem pants that are particularly baggy,si
brightly colored bac tees and tucked-in vests will balance out the width at the legs.     source

Some are a little worried about this 80's trend resurfacing. If worn the wrong way, I have to admit they aren't the most flattering of items. They're growing on me daily however, and on my hunt for style inspiration I've definitely found the good, bad and downright ugly. I've already grabbed myself a bargain pair at Sportsgirl (for $69.95) and I'm definitely enjoying the comfortability. I'm not so sure my husband thinks they are the most flattering of clothing items, especially on my 5ft nothing body but I'm having fun wearing them and sometimes with new trends that's the main thing!
