New York Fashion Week 2012 – EMERGE!

February 19, 2012

One of the highlights of our New York City Fashion Week was attending EMERGE! A Fashion Runway Show. The show focuses on showcasing the talents of emerging new designers.
This show in particular was super exciting for us because not only was the show dedicated to one of our favorite fashion icons Vogue’s Contributing Editor Andre Leon Talley; he was presented the Fashion Innovator Award by Diane Von Furstenberg.

It was a wonderful way to kick start an incredible evening of fashion.
New Haven based designer Evoli showcased his talents to the star studded audience!

Below are some photos from his collection and some snap shots from the week. Enjoy!





Mrs Obama’s Stunning Blue Dress

January 28, 2012

We love this blue twill dress by designer Barbara Tfank. We all need a little pop of color in our lives. Why not consider adding a classic dress in a great color to your wardrobe? It will really boost your spirits!

Did we mention that the First Lady looks fabulous? She perfectly coordinates with a pair of black kitten heels and a very cool marquis pin.

The September Issue

September 26, 2011

It is Summer’s end…I’m in my studio at 129 Church Street, New Haven. CT with fashion on my mind. I’m reading the September issue of China Vogue.
There are six beautiful models wearing gowns from the Gucci Fall 2011 collection. The colors are vibrant: peacock blue, plum, fuschia, red, yellow.
The colors remind me of Caribbean sailing, St Tropez, Canne and Monte Carlo and all the fabulous colors that I saw on the runway during fashion week.
Yes…color is back! We can’t wait to debut our gown collection for Fall 2011. Stay tuned for more updates
and events coming soon.

Fashion Inspirations

September 12, 2011

So, every once in a while all fashionistas must seek inspiration to bring excitement to their wardrobe. A new season is very quickly approaching so went on a little scouting mission to New York City to find some inspiration for our Fall wardrobe.
Maybe something trendy, classic or maybe a little bohemian?

What’s the best lingerie to pack for your Summer Vacation?

July 14, 2011

Ok, so the rule of thumb is to always bring more underwear than you think that you’ll need.

Keisha’s tips for the best travel lingerie:

1) Lace thongs with matching camisoles or bras. Select at least one bright Summer color like yellow!
2) Pick up a nude “shape wear” panty to put underneath that tiny see through number (its our little secret that smooths out all the lumps and bumps) and you should also pair it with a comfortable strapless nude bra.
3) Camisoles – Select basic colors like black, white, nude. You’ll never know when you need one to layer under a jacket or a sun dress.
4) Bring a couple pairs of cotton basics (skip the granny panties and pick up a couple pairs of hipsters).
5.) Pack a Chemise or two in your favorite color. I’m a big fan of pink.

Summer vacation lingerie should be fun and easy to wear and pack. Don’t forget to put all your delicates in a cute monogram lingerie bag!
