Do-It-Yourself Fashion: It's a Cinch

Thursday, June 15, 2006

Yesterday at the trim store, I came across a roll of 4-inch-wide black elastic, absolutely perfect for replicating the wide-belted look from Lanvin this season (above). The label's designer, Alber Elbaz, cinched his ladylike dresses and coats with simple, slimming belts, and you can too… for only about $4 per meter and a few large hook-and-eyes.

Here's the belt in close-up form as seen in Vogue's much-discussed makeover of UK celebrity Jordan, from the April issue. And there's plenty more ideas in the photos from Lanvin's spring/summer show.
