But Natalie Roth and Terry Dresbach have an answer to these blind spots in the visual appreciation of film. They are the founder and curator of ‘Best of British Costume Design,’ the Bafta exhibition that, every season in spring, offers a small selection of the year’s fashion brilliance, as seen in cinema’s narration to British Academy and invited international audiences. Then Terry Dresbach, a veteran of the discipline and destined for reputation with a visit to fashion’s colder, northern roots happens.

This paper examines the mysteries of movies’ fashion by discussing the Bafta exhibition, ‘Best of British Costume Design,’ with its founder and curator, Natalie Roth, and one of the participating designers, Terry Dresbach. Before the cinema reaches the red carpet, costume designers are already at work, laboring in tandem with a pantheon of other cinema technicians. These collaborations are heretofore unknown to the public and even to students of film who separate departments of the form to examine the white heat of lighting or the power of production design. And this has been, until now, the official fate of costume.

Background of Bold and Beautiful Fashion

Grayson first brought bold, creamy, and sweet-smelling beauty services to what was a charlatan’s market. He really scared many of the old established coiffers into improving their enterprises. More than just perming and spray setting, wigs and nice sleek pressings, Grayson also brought the feminine “unspeakables” out of the second-rate women’s restrooms and into what approximates an Art Deco powder room. He considered the needs of women who work outside the home, which is truly the majority of most times, from straight-up middle class on down, as did Brandon. Then, too, he provided a pleasant way to look in the mirror at the other end of the beauty shopping. All dismal lighting was the consistent customer complaint at the other old established beauty parlors, newsstands, inside the department stores, Freihauf, station and airport restroom, roadhouse bathroom, and Texaco and Gardenias.

Bold and Beautiful was the district’s first haute couture boutique. It made fashion fun because they stored it all while it was still daring – not three years after the fact like every other woman’s boutique in town. All of the merchandise was “crazy” prints, first and foremost from Italy. These were some of the most expensive regenerated fibers available in line that would “stretch ’til the cows came home,” but would never stretch out of shape. These “forever” knits were then fashioned into the sleekest silhouettes known in all of Christendom. Brandon considered only the blouse to be “right” with everything. A “right” blouse should be cut and shaped, quite nip-n-tuck, to fit around the bazooms and then skim all over the remainder of the torso. Shaped right, this means that the tummy area does not protuberate at all.

The Evolution of Bold and Beautiful Fashion

Since their inception 20 years ago, the B&B designers have produced 40,000 designs featuring a total of nearly 40,000 different apparel items created for the more than 130 actors who have graced the B&B set, showcasing the distinct tastes of the characters they portrayed. This is nothing less than mirror magic, for every Forrester model manages to mimic the what-would-I-choose-for-myself look. Since 1987, B&B has gone on record as being the first television program to be invited to show two seasons’ runway fashions – all Forrester Creations’ originals – at any fashion week, anywhere in the world. The Bold team traveled to a most appreciative Australian Fashion Week; prior to that, they showed Forrester designs in Monte Carlo, Paris, and Betsey Johnson’s studios in New York. These very special appearances are but a few by-products of B&B’s not inconsiderable creative design triumph.

In 1987, in their first week of production, The Bold and Beautiful designers switched designer labels, following the advice of their Get-Real-and-Go-For-It advice guru to the rich and famous — Caroline Forrester — by landing a deal with Forrester Creations. At that time, Forrester was in competition with only dominant fashion giant, Spectra Fashions, run by shameless Sally Spectra. Luckily, over the years, fashion – no longer merely an industry — has evolved into an entire lifestyle culture. No wonder then, that according to Forrester chief designer Clarke, the secret of the design team’s success and fulfillment has a lot to do with their utter commitment to their creative work.

Influences from Runway Trends

The Forrester brand is always a seal in the world of high fashion, one of the brightest representatives of the business, of which is also a new fictional personage of the soap opera.

Color Palette and Patterns

Color has an emotional effect on people that makes it instrumental in fashion design. Interference pigments are used to produce the gloss effect, and the covers are all high-gloss designs that have a strong visual impact and influence the emotional reception of the clothing. Pigments and oxides on decorative colorants, on the core, are the reflection and/or refraction of visible light to produce the color effect. Inorganic and organic pigments are most commonly used in decorative colorants, which show the color and pattern relationship of a 2D art creation. Fabrics contain micro-ornaments, and the effect is used in industrial design. Flattened or glossy 3D micro-ornaments can be seen, which can be uniform or used to create a specific pattern. Pantone colors are used to develop a color-learning application that facilitates the construction of a color bridge. The application helps tailor-made garment combinations that provide a pleasing visual coolant, encouraging exploration of new combinations.

The use of color creates some of the boldest, most immediately perceivable formal and psychological characteristics of clothing. In addition to varicolored and dyed fabrics, we are all familiar with screen-printed fashionable clothing featuring text, images, and intricate patterns. There is also the use of digital printers that allow images of any type of pattern to be printed. However, digital printing is not applicable to all materials, particularly fabrics with a high density of fibers, as this can result in a blurring of the printed pattern. More advanced 3D printing technology has emerged to address this challenge. A large multidisciplinary consortium named 3DPetriNet is developing a comprehensive 3D printer to meet the ultimate needs of fashion designers and manufacturers. This innovative technology enables a fashionable creation of clothing, combining textile materials with a complex 3D structure. These color patterns will play a significant role in creating both form and texture in the visible spectrum.

Fashion Icons of Bold and Beautiful

Here we find much bolder fashion than before. They drag us out of our fashion complacency and bring shock and trend to our fashion instincts. While “reality” aids and abets in the ease of wear on the shelf, not many can really afford a Paris catwalk/pret collection bought off the screen. If they are not busy launching lines over the Atlantic, they are involved in international marketing of jeans, baby clothes, and dolls. They even cater to the pursuit of appearance by fellow actors on the soaps looking for another iconic break as well.

One could argue that “The Bold and The Beautiful” is probably a larger contributing fashion icon of some current trends and some classic fixations than Vogue or the House of Chanel are. Others may argue that since the global fashion television revolution, fashion has suddenly become very glamorous, very trendy, and suddenly accessible to the rest of the world. And because of these soapies, the Parises and Milans are now bringing to us South Africans a wider variety of clothing – nouveaute. They (The Bold and the Beautiful team) are catapulting us between reality and people on TV into a visual fantasy, helping us to visualize what we would really like to leave home wearing every day and helping the European elite define our fashion.

Steffy Forrester

But some viewers are not sure why they need to root for a woman who would push up dates and throw herself two weeks ahead of paperwork, risking her job and her marriage. Shares Brad Bell, “I see that from a character standpoint there are potential problems ahead – are we making her too professionally aggressive and risking making her off-putting? – yet we are also endeavoring to tell a story about someone driven by an abiding sense of a key and, possibly, definitive moment in her life’s journey and are trying to be socially relevant in the process.” The character’s sometimes unlikeable actions have caused quite a buzz on the boards. Bell himself cautioned, “Steffy is pushing the envelope, pursuing a cause with dangerous perfectionism, but the show will address this in future story.”

While there is an unwavering loyalty to the show, many fans despise the villainesses for the impact they have on their favorite characters and despise Bradley Bell and the writers for creating characters who have no redeeming values and justify every evil act, something I guess happens in almost every soap. The lip service to empowerment and independence in their stories falls flat with most viewers. Brad Bell describes Steffy Forrester, the bold and the beautiful’s new leading lady as a digital age smart, aggressive, reactive, and outspoken. Stephanie Forrester is the power player character, the very best and the very worst in her father, a force to be reckoned with. Like her grandmother, she is part of the “Once a woman makes up her mind, good luck trying to change it!” clan.

Conclusion and Future Trends

The search for archetypal symbols usually results in a series of designs that seek to undermine the creative function. Their function is to exploit the empathy process to achieve a paranoid and controlling effect. This rogues’ gallery of intellectual elitism in the fashion œuvre is worth labeling. An archetypal symbol can be generally defined as an arbitrary amalgamation of disparate elements within fashion, achieved not through logic but through chance.

The future trend we state would vary greatly depending on whether ‘psychological varicolored designs’ occur or not. The future development of such activities would depend to a large degree upon whether the industry chooses to advance further the discovery of individual, cultural varicolored designs or not. That’s to say whether they utilize fresh, innovative designs as part of a complex, rounded symbolic function for human beings or whether it is used as a feedback-controlled facsimile of collective acceptance of established design standards.

Meanwhile, this research measures the effect of celebrities, brands, designers, and genres for predicting the strength and attractiveness of the projection of such trends.

This paper develops a model for forecasting fashion design trends in the fashion field. The research draws upon the concept of the collective unconscious, the theory of symbolism, and individuation theory to outline the related principles in the fashion field. Through text mining the title and style introductions in the collections from WWD, it shows that the trends existing in fashion future are traceable in the collective unconscious.
