Shortly we’ll understand Eurovision 2013 results. How the results are counted?
A qualification round, called the semi – final, was released for the Eurovision 2004 Competition.
The ten most highly-placed non-Big Four nations in the grand final were guaranteed a place in the following year’s grand final, without the need to take part in next year’s semi. The remaining nations – which had not automatically qualified for the grand final – had to enter the semi.
In the 50th annual meeting of the EBU in September 2007, it was decided that in the 2008 Contest onwards there will be held two semi-finals. From 2008 onwards, the scoreboard position of any prior years has not been pertinent, and – save for the automatic qualifiers – all participating countries have had to take part in the semi-finals, regardless of the previous year’s scoreboard position. The only nations which automatically be eligible for the grand final are the host nation, and the Large Five : France, Germany, Italy, Spain and great Britain, who continue to appreciate their protected position.
The voting systems utilized in the Eurovision Song Contest have transformed throughout the years. The current system has been in place since 1975, and is a positional voting system. Countries grant a set of factors from 1 to 8, then 10 and lastly 12 to other tracks in the competition – using the favorite track being gave 12 points.

But in some other countries like China, there is considerable rapid change in their clothing.
The changes in costumes can happen at times of economic and social changes. That is when a country is colonized by other countries where they brought with them their fashions and styles. The influence of western cultures can also change the fashion of a certain country.
The media has a significant role when it comes to fashion. The fashion journalism is very important where you can read editorial critique, commentary in magazines, newspaper, television, and on internet. Through these media outlets, readers and viewers can have access to the latest fashion.
To get the right fit, designer Joaquin Trias focuses on proportions, fit, and clothes you can wear forever
- by Chadner Navarro
Before pursuing a career designing womenswear and hosting runway presentations at New York Fashion Week, Joaquin Trias was training as a professional tennis player. It didn’t take long for our conversation to turn to the world of racquet sports. “Most people in Spain hate me,” Trias, who is based in Madrid, jokes. “Because I prefer Roger Federer to Rafael Nadal. When you watch Federer [on the court] it doesn’t even seem like he’s on the ground. It’s like he’s gliding over it.”
Yes, Federer does have incredible movement, and yes, it is odd that a Spaniard would overlook Nadal for his main rival. But when you see the clothes Trias makes, you immediately understand why he would appreciate Federer’s effortless, flowing style of play over Nadal’s rough, gritty counter-punching.
Autodidact Joaquin Trias insists that his label is built on four significant pillars: respect, perfection, innovation and strength. He sees respect as an overall understanding and appreciation for the process that is required of building a label, from sketching and selecting fabrics to selecting employees and visualizing the woman he designs for. “We want to give her clothes that she can wear for a long time,” the designer adds.
Perfection, however, is a little less theoretical and a lot more tangible. “It’s about the structure, shape and proportions,” he explains. “We are obsessed [with] proportions. It’s like building a house. If the proportions aren’t right, it won’t work.” On the outside, the clothes boast Trias’s minimalist aesthetic (outerwear, for example, don’t even have buttons), but inside, intricate construction abounds, like a stunning coat that’s made with a staggering 120 patterns.
Trias’s debut collection from Spring 2010 showcased several pieces that looked, for a lack of a better word, wet — as if the blouse or dress was coated with a film of water. “Exactly,” Trias animatedly concurs. “The technology is there, but it has to be very organic.” To achieve this synergy, the designer worked with Swiss textile engineers to develop high-tech materials and finishes that give his work a look uniquely its own. Of course, he also uses natural fabrics like wools and silks, but adding a layer of wax to give a skirt just the right amount of heft is just one of the ingenious ways Trias has captured the attention of the industry. Metals are also woven into silk and sturdy textiles line coats to maintain shape.
And though Trias is not the first to pay homage to the strength of a confident woman, his vision is imbued with a forward-thinking twist. “We are talking about the woman of the future, but not futuristic,” he clarifies. “She is attuned to what’s around her, her attitude and her style.”
When these ideas come together, the result is as visually breathtaking as it is incredibly well conceived. “We’ve been described as the thinking woman’s brand,” Trias says. “And I like that.” The fall collection, called “Vertical Strength,” is all about straight lines. Nothing fussy here: the striking palette of blacks, blues and taupes (and the Trias team actually creates its own colors) serve as the perfect backdrop to gorgeously structured dresses, coats, skirts and trousers. Every piece reinforces this linear approach with pleating or contrasting color panels. And there’s nary a full-length sleeve in sight. “We find [the wrist] a really attractive part of the woman’s body,” the designer says. Some pieces are also outfitted with subtle capes, which seem like an excessive detail, but not in context of the inspiration behind Fall 2010’s offerings. “This is like when you go to a forest,” he explains. “The trees are standing one behind the other. That’s what the capes are supposed to resemble.”
Trias, not surprisingly, had a very particular approach on how to enter the fashion industry. For a long time, he didn’t want anyone to see his creations, not the models who wore them (they had to wear blindfolds during fittings), not editors, not anyone. Even at a meeting with Women’s Wear Daily, he brought photographs on his computer rather than samples. It was only when iconic design doyenne Carolina Herrera (a family friend) gave Trias the thumbs up that the fire was finally lit. “She helped us so much,” he says. “When we came back to Madrid [after meeting with Herrera], we knew we had to do it. And she gave great advice. She said to follow the steps. Start from the bottom and build everything.” This reverence to the process and not the final product still exists today. Right now, Trias has no retail presence. The designer first wanted to establish his brand’s identity before filtering it through the demanding financial expectations of sales.
Trias’s line, which is celebrating its second season this Fall, may not have even happened if it wasn’t for a magazine article the designer read while waiting for a tennis session at Nick Bollettieri’s academy (the man who created champions in Monica Seles, Jim Courier and Maria Sharapova). The article was about the genius of Cristobal Balenciaga, which concluded with a quest for both the late designer’s and Spanish fashion’s progeny. “I thought to myself, this is me! That’s me,” Trias reveals with a laugh. And why not him? One of his grandmothers modeled for Balenciaga, so the lineage is certainly there. And if Roger Federer’s calculated fluidity and finesse on the court can lead to a record-breaking 16 Grand Slam titles, why can’t Joaquin Trias’s creative acuity bring him longevity in a fickle industry?

Inspired by the American sculptor Leonardo Drew’s moody and textured work, Joaquín Trías was feeling apocalyptic for Fall. However, Trías, a former tennis player turned self-taught designer, has the bouncy enthusiasm of a golden retriever. It’s hard to imagine him having a dark day, let alone enough fodder for an end-of-days collection. Perhaps that accounted for the somewhat mixed result.
A big part of the story was a play of textures, as in the double-face Japanese tweed backed with crinkle cotton, which had a nice homey chic. A black foil-printed chiffon with a zebra print, on the other hand, might have seemed like a good idea, but in practice felt a bit girls-night-out cheap. Trías played it off straightforward chiffon in dresses with petal sleeves and waist-exposing cutouts. There was yet more slicing and dicing; Trías, after all, has a hazily architectural ethos. The problem is that it’s not always convincing, for instance in the little black dress that came wrapped with a sort of asymmetrical lamé half-shrug.
The buttery black leathers—Trías tapping into his Spanish heritage—were easily the high point, particularly in a pencil skirt with whipstitch detail snaking up the side. But there was nothing you couldn’t live without, and nothing you couldn’t find elsewhere. Often, TRIAS collections seem to end up between being "just clothes," with little defining purpose or customer, and arty pieces that seem to satisfy their creator’s ego more than relate to what women want to wear. Last season, Trías decided to start showing in Paris instead of New York, but without a sharp point of view that decision seems like pure indulgence.

After three seasons showing in New York, Madrid-based Joaquín Trias decided to try presenting in Paris. "I love New York," he explained. "But we’re European and we want to be recognized as a European brand."
Trias is still working out what he’s all about, but he does know that his ideal client is innately elegant and that she loves the understated yet interesting. Like so many designers who aim for that intersection, he’s obsessed with architecture. In less experienced hands, that kind of source material can easily turn clunky; his work has been to smooth those edges.
For Spring, he got closer to that goal, taking his cues from Tadao Ando’s overlapping forms. But instead of his typically stiff fabrics, he opted for those with a little give, like a cornflower blue silk-cotton organza, and for the first time, a buttery thin Spanish leather. The Ando reference gave you coat lapels designed to close by resting atop one another, and dresses with fluid capelike layers. The idea worked particularly nicely in the first look, a crisp white tulip-skirted cotton dress with overlapping flaps like wings on its open back and an asymmetrical collar. The designer himself made sure each model turned at quarter angles to allow for every side to be viewed. "Every view is really important," Trias said. "It’s different from the front, back, and sides."
