The Bow Pump!

20140615-233850-85130739.jpg
Alaska-born Aminah Abdul-Jillil began her career as a professional dancer in Los Angeles, performing with the likes of Janet Jackson, Britney Spears and Cirque du Soleil (Crimson). Being constantly exposed to culture, art, design and fashion, Aminah decided to pursue her talents as a designer. Her inspiration mostly comes from images in street culture, music, cinema and the fact that she’s always looking to try something new. This is precisely why her designs are so unique and are an immediate show-stopper. See for yourself!

Runway: Dior Resort 2015!

A few weeks ago, Raf Simons and the house of Dior showcased a collection that was modern with French chicness mixed with an American homage and I was so attracted to the florals and abstractions that I wanted to share some of the looks with you.

The fast-paced show featured 66 looks. Here are some of my faves:

I’m loving: Sincerely Jules’ tees!

I previously blogged about Julie Sariñana’s screen print “Célfie” tee here. Well, the founder of Sincerely Jules designed many other fun & quirky tees emblazoned with inspiring mottos and images that I’m sure you’ll love.

Most of these tees are unisex and feature a more open neckline and a looser fitting body for extra comfort.

I also love these cute totes (conscious alternative to plastic bags) and these perfectly dainty hand made rings.

Star Designer: Cushnie et Ochs!

20140118-142703.jpg
If you have never heard of Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, then you better start getting to know more about these 2 fashion designers. Together, they established Cushnie et Ochs in 2008 and have since created an embodiment of work that is representative of what every woman is looking to have in their wardrobe. Their work is bold and sensual with a touch of raw feminine attitude. It expresses confidence. They understand the female body and celebrate it. The body-contouring silhouettes, the bold lines and colors are complemented in their collections which makes it a flawless execution every time.

I fell in love with their Pre Fall 2014 collection. 😍
I’m sure you will too…see for yourself. 😉

Star Designer – Rachel Sin

 

Architect turned fashion designer, Rachel Sin, developed a passion for all things well designed in her studies, earning a Masters degree in architecture. She believes that if “God is in the details”, then let the folds of the fabric create these details.

Very meticulous in her designs, Rachel is able to translate her architectural skills onto fabric with grace, refinery, precision and quality. If architecture must always be functional, then fashion should always be wearable.
