Not sure about you but I have been as busy as ever, I can not believe it is December already! Wow 2013 flew by. I still have so much I want to do before the year ends,I feel that I am caught in rush hour. I have been living in this outfit (and versions of it in black or grey). It is easy, comfortable, casual: the best, especially when I am on the go and getting things done.
I am so excited to share that I am working with a new photographer, she is dope and such a ball of energy. I never thought that I would find someone that could talk as much as I do, but I found my match. Carmin Edwards (her website is in progress), stay tuned for our upcoming collaborations.
PS. The Dov's Hoodie by American Apparel is the best; between my boyfriend and I, we own 7 of them (seriously).

I am in need of some stillness and days off; though that is easier said than done. Trying to set aside personal time these days is real hard. I want to, but it seems like something always comes up and being who I am, I just add to my workload. I think all of us at some point needs to recharge, in order to be more productive and even creative.
I am reaching that stage where I need some time to re-fuel my mind, body and creativity. I know it won't be anytime soon, but one of my bff's Crystal is coming home next month and I am taking a whole weekend off to just hang with her. We will be able to share ideas, catch up, drink, eat and laugh. I am really looking forward to some well deserve girlfriend time. Anyone else need a break?

There is something about wearing all white outfits that is empowering. People you don't know feel the need to approach you and let you know the rules of not wearing in the Fall, then there are those who just

I have been back from LA for a week now and it has rained pretty much everyday since, so when the sunshine comes out I try to catch as much as sunlight as possible. I probably should have worn a jacket or pants, but it is a rare occasion when the sun graces us like this, so I took full advantage of it.
I have decided to change my source of inspiration for the next collection. I have used Brazilian architect Oscar Nieymer for all my past collections, but I thought it was time to move forward and choose another. After my research I decided to go with the king of geometric forms I. M. Pei. You probably would know him from some of his work: the Louvre Pyramid and the JFK library. He has also created many other amazing, minimal and modern buildings, make sure to look his work up.

LA no matter how long the last visit was when I arrive it is like I never left; it feels like home. The people's attitude, fashion and weather are so inspiring. This past week was pretty intense, filled with meetings, visiting different LA head offices for contemporary fashion such as Splendid, Ella Moss, and 7 For All Mankind. I feel honoured I was invited to see the behind the scenes of these brands. Not only the actual head offices were cool with fierce beautiful people, it was a great way to see beyond fashion as clothing and instead see the business side of things.
It was such an eye opener, now more than ever I know exactly what I want. Such an humbling experience to put everything into perspective, my goals, dreams, brand, work and knowing where I come from and where I want to go. I feel overly excited and inspired, expect nothing than 150% hard work for my next collection. Starting this month I will be gathering my visual inspirations and making my mood board. Missing LA already and all the high energy it gives me. Reaching for the stars, moon and sun ♡.

They are finally here, snaps from the ACRE show. I am stoked to share these with you, more will be posted on my Facebook page in the next few days. Being able to see the Linear Collection displayed in such a minimal, industrial venue was important to me. I explained to the models to think of themselves as buildings, as all the pieces were inspired by architecture; they understood the concept: "Be Strong and Independent". The project re-affirmed my belief that the simplest elements are always best to create maximum effect. I want to continue rejecting over-familiar notions while developing my personal and visual identity. I couldn't be more excited.
