Jenni Kayne’s collection aimed to serve a purpose: “I focused on creating clothes for strong, confident women with a need for effortlessly glamorous pieces to help them navigate their busy Holiday schedules,” she explained. The designer also looked at style icon Lauren Bacall for her statement pieces — men’s shirting, high-waist pants and gingham. In Kayne’s hand, shirts were either done in cozy flannel or in a silky polka-dotted pattern — which she also rendered in tunics, layered over pants.
There are lace dresses and then there’s Martha Medeiros lace dresses. The Brazilian native mastered the art of lace-making at the tender age of eight. “I started when I was eight, doing dresses for my dolls; when I was 15, I made my first real dress, and I have not stopped since,” said the charismatic designer at her intimate presentation in New York. What sets them apart, is the rare laces she uses and the labor intensive techniques — a wedding gown can take more than 1,000 hours to make.
When one thinks of an intricately beaded, or embroidered floral gowns, Naeem Khan comes to mind. He has mastered the art of luxurious eveningwear — but with an ever more casual reality. So it’s no surprise that the designer is flirting with more dressed down options for his jet-setting clientele.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
