Resort 2014: Mary Katrantzou

Mary Katrantzou's first ever Resort 2014 collection. landscapes that travel the world and softer silhouettes - “exploring volume in a less extravagant, lighter, younger way.” 
no matter, what season it is, I will always love and appreciate Mary Katrantzou's breathtaking surreal, playful and explosive prints. 


Resort 2014: Emilio Pucci

"If it didn't look good with a flat shoe, it didn't go in the collection. And no checked-in baggage, either. It's got to fit into a carry-on, even evening dresses." - Peter Dundas

This may be the perfect Resort 2014 collection. Now that I'm heading to Miami for Independence weekend, these are the exact bold and beach ready looks I wanna go for. strong bright mosaic prints for day and night. edgy yet relaxed. all i'm missing is my mojito. see you soon Miami.

Fashion Week: Dominican Republic

fashion week DR was pretty fun CAUSE it was right on the beach (crystal clear water, beautiful white Caribbean sand - sigh) and at an all inclusive hotel. too bad we got super sick though. we only enjoyed a couple celebratory piña coladas before and after the show n hit the sack like at 11 pm because we were 3 hours away from the airport and we had to get up at 6am. we were basically in n out of DR n went to no after parties. according to our driver, the real party people were the models who ended up in the pool. no thanks. 

3 days, 2 nights.

it was one of the most stress free shows we've ever worked on. peasy easy. all the models and additional designers were running around the backstage like crazy chickens, while we took our time and dressed the models. 

PROPS to the hair and makeup team. so far, the best hair and makeup team we have worked with. everything was absolutely flawless.

in 2013, we have so far conquered Macro Fest (Panama) and Fashion Week (DR) and we have more to come...ohhhh yeahhhh!
