Gaucho Clothes is the term used to refer to the traditional clothing used nowadays by the gauchos who mainly
inhabit Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil. The gauchos are the cowboys of these South American countries.
Although we find
distinctive regional features, the main elements are:
The alpargatas, which is a rope sole and canvas shoe. The bombachas
de campo, very strong pure cotton trousers and the boina hat. These elements all have a European origin and they started to
be worn by the gaucho around the middle of the 19th century.
The alpargatas in English known as espadrilles were originally
made with black canvas but are now produced with a wide range of colours and patterns; some have rubber sole as well.
bombachas de campo are made in different colours, styles and designs but the most popular colours are still the traditional:
khaki, black, white, dark blue and dark green. These trousers are immediately identifiable because of the button they have
at the ankle which is used to narrow them.
The very fashionable gaucho pants similar to the capri pants are different
because of this reason, they do not go down to the ankle and because they are worn mainly by women which is not the case of
the bombacha de campo which is unisex.
Another element used by the gauchos which is also a very fashionable item is
the poncho, used in winter to protect from the cold winters in the pampas
It can be stated that these clothing items
are today worn not only by the gauchos, because as they have become fashionable, designers in Argentina have developed and
improved the original designs so they have become very popular with the general public.
Another reason for the gaucho
clothes fashion is the association with the polo environment. Polo players and fans have always been keen users of gaucho
clothes so the association has proven a trend to follow.
For all these reasons Gauchoclothes.com is your definite website
for these products.

Fashion Industry Network
The Fashion Industry Network (www.FashionIndustryNetwork.com)
is a business networking community designed for the fashion industry. The network allows individuals the opportunity to develop
personal profiles to highlight their professional experience in the fashion industry.
The Fashion Industry Network ( www.FashionIndustryNetwork.com ) is a business networking community designed for the fashion industry. The network allows individuals the opportunity to
develop personal profiles to highlight their professional experience in the fashion industry. After profiles are created,
members may freely join groups that pertain to their area of expertise. For example, if the member is a "pattern maker" they
will join the Pattern Making Group. As pattern making can be considered a function of design, a pattern maker would also be
welcome in the Design Group if they were so inclined. In addition, they may wish to enter into discussions with people in
the Clothing Manufacturing Group.
Members are permitted to join groups in which they have direct personal expertise
or simply a very strong interest in the groups topic of discussion. The idea is for both industry veterans and new members
of the industry to converse and share ideas. It is a wonderful place for members of the industry to learn from one another.
One member may lend assistance regarding the proper method for fusing a lapel. Another member may have experience with printing
t-shirts by using cut panels. As the membership grows, more shared knowledge will be available to all.
is an excellent structure for open communication. Viewers may post comments or questions in the general forums, or they can
post topical messages in a specific group. Members may also have discussions with one another on their personal profile pages.
In addition, if the member wishes to ask another member a question in private, they can send an e-mail message.
network has several predefined "groups" and new groups can be added based on suggestions from the sites members. The only
requirement of the network, is that the discussions stay on topic. Any topic relevant to fashion, textiles, or related fields
are welcome. For an example of a "related field", the site allows jewelry designers, hair stylists, makeup artists etc. In
fact, the site allows groups to develop regarding warehousing, custom brokerage, import & export etc. Certainly, the fashion
industry would not function with out warehousing and distribution. Therefore, if you work in a clothing warehouse you are
certainly welcome to post your views. Essentially, any business function that is directly relevant to the fashion industry
or textile industry is welcome at the Fashion Industry Network.
The primary goal of the network is to bring together
members of the fashion industry in a friendly setting so that they that they can have open dialog regarding business matters.
This site is not a "social" network. The site is a "business" network. Although you will find a friendly and sociable community,
the primary function is to meet business contacts and discuss relevant business topics.
The Fashion Industry Network has been developed by the Apparel Search Company (www.ApparelSearch.com). As stated by the owners of Apparel Search, "We are very pleased to provide the fashion industry with the first online business network devoted entirely
to the fashion industry. Although we have incubated the concept and developed the site, the success of the network lies in
the hands of our individual members. If this network turns into the valuable tool that we believe is possible, the thanks
should not go to Apparel Search. Each fashion industry expert that has joined the network deserves the praise. Again, it is
the community of members that will make this site a valuable business tool".
The network has recently launched and
will take time to fully develop. In time, this network will be beneficial to all that have an interest in fashion.

Trends come and go so quickly it’s sometimes hard to know what’s hot. But rather than have someone
tell you, why not help set the trends?
style spy (http://www.stylespy.net) is the latest and most unique development in social trend-spotting. A simple-to-use and highly visual application,
style spy gives you the opportunity to vote on and discuss what’s hot – helping to shape trends – as well
as being up to date with what’s in and what’s out.
“style spy is so simple, it’s fun to use and we’re continually working to make it better,”
says Allan Barger, 22, one of style spy’s creators.
Unlike social bookmarking, style spy is all about charting what’s hot. Trends quickly emerge as items
sink or swim depending on votes from users. Content on style spy ranges from clothing and accessories to cool new gadgets,
established brands to upcoming talent.
As well as being a trend bible for consumers, style spy is also a perfect tool for upcoming fashion designers
and labels to promote their wares and bring their designs to the attention of a wider audience.

Anja Cockel does it again...a newer look too!
Play with me
“It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, it’s how you
play the game.”
To me the rediscovery
of playing as a motif of my collection is like the story of a love long lost and found anew.
It has only become clear to me now that this love is closely linked to a longing for the simple, childlike
creativity so full of relish
?? KINDLICHEN GESTALTEN.
As a child I played a lot. Especially my first “excursions” into art were characterised by games with which
I conquered “my world”. I spent hours dreaming of new realities. Circles, brush
strokes and colour stains finally formed pictures showing hundreds of air balloons, merry-go-rounds and
Today Anja Gockel feels
as attracted to playing games as ever. She allows herself to drift with the flow and experiments with accident. Playing games
is the principle according to which she creates something new from colours, shades and silhouettes.
The colour scheme is
suprisingly subdued for Anja
Gockel – subtle yet absolutely variable in itself.
Each game has its rules. The first rule is clarity. The second is sophistication. And the third is freedom.
Colours and Silhouettes
Our “must-have” for Winter 2007/08 is a coat in a water-repellent
material with metallic sheen that protects against wind and rain. It is combined with a skin-tone tulle skirt and fine lace.
The exciting silhouette and the use of these extraordinary fabrics make for an interplay of “stiff and flowing”
as well as “opaque and transparent”. The next group is an invitation to play with styles. Both youthfully casual
and businesslike. Jersey, silk and bone lace united in a white top. This teams with a brown skirt which is flexible and versatile in shape and length thanks to
The hallmark of the new winter collection is a slender, austere styling. Slim-fit trouser suits, pencil
skirts in masculine striped stretch
fabics and flowing tops with overlapping sleeves
are the winners of this game. Tradition versus innovation.
This season’s colours can be broken down into three harmonious groups:
Matt “pine forest”, cold “ice” and mystic “oxide” carry
away players into gloomy fairytale forests. Dark
“maroon”, “anthracite” and “ black” allow us a glimpse of the underworld. And those not
yet may venture to step on Anja Gockel’s
playing field in dark “purple”, pale “mallow” and silvry

Is Spain, Milan, and Paris burning with inspiration, or going in opposite directions?
A side note: Sexual violence in the areas in which these styles are worn socially, IE
Caan, France are at their lowest level ever. What this means is being investigated too

July 12, 2007 a follow up report:
From several email and other fashions forums reports have come in which states these topless fashions
have been seen in a very few public clubs. And the clubs which they have been largely worn have been mostly private
On the other hand, these fashions have been seen in mostly private parties, at times at resorts
in the Med, or Carribean area. In European private parties they all are a rage and in certain upscale circles peer influences
and popularity power social forces are likewise taking hold.
It looks like this trend will have long term holding power.
