Emerging Designer: Kris Jane International

12

After completing her studies at Istituto Marangoni a private school for fashion and design in Milan, Kris Jane knew that she had found her calling as a designer. She then traveled to Hong Kon and created her line in May 2012. Her focus is creating pieces that fully compliment  a woman’s silhouette accented with A- line shapes and peplum drawn from a variety of cultures. This collection entitled “Lance and Lilies”  combines medieval armor and florals  and creates a “futuristic nostalgia” and a definite play on hard and soft contrasts.  Check out our interview with Kris below….

1) Who is the Kris Jane woman?
She is someone who is independent, confident and makes an effort to stand out from the crowd. She would also have a refined taste in contemporary arts culture .
2) How are you setting yourself apart in a very crowded world of fashion design?
This is probably the most challenging part, because you really have to first understand who you are as a designer and as a brand. For me, it’s a constant learning progress.  As a new brand, it is very important that your products make commercial sense to your buyers, but always be true to your vision.

3) Your mother is also a fashion designer. How has she influenced your style and design aesthetic?
We’ve always had very different aesthetics. However, she is very daring and is never afraid to experiment with new ideas. I am very lucky to have grown up with this kind of influence. And that’s a very big part of what my label is about, it’s about being creative, being experimental with new elements and pushing boundaries.
4) You launched your collection just a few years ago. What financial advice can you give novice designers looking to start a brand?
-Be very realistic with your expectations. You can definitely start a brand with limited budget and resources. The key is to know how to leverage them. 
-Don’t be afraid to collaborate with other people, collective effort is always more effective, particularly at the beginning. 
-Be very cautious when bringing new investors, it could be a blessing or a curse working with investors too early on.

5) What values has served you well as a designer and business owner?
Passion and Persistence .

Zendaya for Flaunt Magazine

Shot_05_3100

Zendaya Coleman is the latest star to break out of the Disney caste to tackle more challenging roles in Hollywood. The actress and multi platinum selling singer has currently been named the face of Madonna’s Material Girl line  and was chosen to portray late singer Aaliyah in her biopic but has since dropped out of the project. Apparently Aaliyah fans are very protective of her image and who they want to play her but that shouldn’t take away from Zendaya’s talent. Here’s to hoping Zendaya maintains a positive image an branches out in a way that highlights her talents as opposed to another Disney star whose twerking skills or lack thereof overshadows her music! It was nice to hear the 17 year old wants to stay with Disney for now to appeal with her young fan base in her interview with the publication. Check out the recent spread by Flaunt Magazine below where she is rocking looks by J Brand, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu and Fausto Puglisi….

Emerging Designer: Jessica White for CASA de MODA

Jessica White is a fun-loving, LA based designer who ambitiously created  her own line, The CASA de MODA , that encompasses “an enhanced version, maybe even the alter ego of myself” to quote her. She indicated that she loves to travel and that is evident in the fabrics she uses, perfect for the girl on the go. We caught up with the burgeoning designer to discuss her design inspirations and how she’s managing her brand…

JM1

Who is Casa de Moda woman?

CASA de MODA style is classic with an unexpected edge. The CDM woman is a modern city girl. She is fun, ambitious, successful, loves travel, and lives life with a purpose. She works hard, plays hard, and wears CASA de MODA for her life away from the office. Wether it’s cocktails with the girls, a night out with that special someone, or a special event, she knows she’ll make a statement without looking like she tried too hard. She loves that she can pair her CASA de MODA pieces with items in her existing wardrobe to dress them up or down and making them great day to night  transition pieces. 

We love that your materials are animal friendly? Do you find that this improves the quality of the garment?

I am absolutely in love with the fabric I used on the “Acute Angle Shorts” and the “Flap Jacket”! It’s 100% Lyocell and I love the look and feel of it.  It’s similar to linen in that it’s a perfect spring fabric, however it’s extremely soft against your skin, lightweight, and drapes beautifully. Unlike Linen, it’s does not easily wrinkle.When sourcing fabrics, I was happy to see that there are some great eco-friendly options, including animal friendly leathers that don’t compromise the quality of the garment.

JM2

How are you standing out from the rest of the design world?

CASA de MODA is special in that  production runs are smaller, making my designs a little more exclusive. In addition, it is a brand you can be proud to support.  God blesses us our a talents to make a positive impact. This season, I took a small step by incorporating eco-friendly fabrics. However, as CASA de MODA continues to grow and evolve as a brand, my goal is to open the level of diversity in the fashion industry, and continue to make positive impacts along the way, it doesn’t matter how big or small.

Who are the designers that inspire you?

Back when I was in fashion school,  I did a report on Tom Ford and ever since then he was my imaginary BFF! I love his attention to detail and precision when it comes to design. When I was going through the design process, I would keep that in mind at fittings. No detail is too small, if a garment needs to be changed just a pinch….it doesn’t matter if it’s a small pinch, you change it! Olivier Rousteing  at Balmain…… need I say more. Also, the California Girl in me loves Heidi Merrick.

JM4

What tips can you offer up and coming designers when it comes to managing the financial aspects of a brand?

Plan ahead. Before you spend your first dollar, set up a system for how you will track costs & sales. Take a class,  set up an appointment with the SBA (Small Business Association), or make an appointment with an accountant to show you the most efficient way for you to set up your system.

Organization. Set aside specific times of the week to record & update your financials. Keep every business related receipt and download an app on your phone that allows you to scan your receipts for easy tracking.

Stay on budget. As a new designer you will source a lot of services such as PR, marketing, production etc. Remember slow and steady wins the race. Decide how you will break up your finances and stick to that budget as much as possible. When you first start you will be a jack of all trades.

Be Patient. Starting a fashion line is costly. There will be a lot of dead ends, but sometimes they lead to an open door.  I would say to myself… “There is a way, I just haven’t found it yet” So be patient and have faith.

Where can interested buyers find your pieces?

Emerging Designer: L. Catherine London

Hey guys! We had some technical difficulties last week but it’s back to our regular programming. L. Catherine London is one of our new designer features for the week and the garments for her Fall 2014 line are pretty impeccably made….

CL3

The London based, International Institute of Fashion “Polimoda'” graduate cut her teeth at the Emilio Pucci Fashion House and worked as a TV fashion journalist before launching her own line. She is all about perfect craftsmanship and luxurious fabrics that give her clothes a very polished edge.  I love her incorporation of knitted material and printed silks as it gives the pieces a cozy yet cosmopolitan feel…linked together by overt femininity. I also enjoyed the graphics she used in certain pieces that reminiscent of a serene park on a snowy day in Europe. Take a look below!

Interview: Emerging Designer Caroline Hayden

CH7
Hello design mavens!
Every now again a designer comes along who strikes just the right balance between uber-feminine and very classic and as it turns out, Caroline Hayden fits that description. From flouncy tops, to flattering hemlines Caroline’s muse is a bit of a girly girl who is surefooted, focused and strong. I enjoyed that while not all of her pieces were necessarily fitted, they still managed to maintain a certain level of sensuality. The Minnesota based designer also makes custom evening and wedding gowns for her American and Canadian clients, who want that throwback to another era feel and simultaneously in need of modernity.  We touched base with Caroline to ask her a few questions regarding challenges she’s experienced, managing her brand financially and who she designs for. Check out the interview below!
Who is Caroline Hayden?
Caroline Hayden the brand is known for its modern, feminine looks. The label got its start designing custom evening and wedding gowns and now, with the inclusion of ready-to-wear, we’ve begun to consider the Caroline Hayden woman much more. Our ‘girl’ is equal parts no-nonsense and feminine, she is looking for investment pieces that she’ll love forever, and she is interested in how clothing makes her feel more than anything else. Caroline Hayden the person is a bit of a recluse. I love the fashion industry and have met a lot of wonderful people along the way but I’d take a quiet night at home with my family and dogs over a big party any day.
What are some of the biggest challenges that you have overcome as an emerging designer?
 
Living and working outside of the fashion bubble could be seen as a huge challenge but I see it as an opportunity. I’ve built good relationships with suppliers and factories here and abroad. Basically, I can do almost everything from my desk in Minnesota and while travel is necessary, no doubt becoming more routine as I continue to grow, I’ve been able to avoid distraction and high studio costs while growing the label at a steady pace.
CH2
CH3
What advice would you offer new designers regarding money management when launching their brand?
In the beginning, do whatever you can to learn about the design process, including internships, searching the internet for information and news on the business of fashion, designer profiles, etc. You also need to figure out who your customer is and what your costs and price point will be. Know your brand, including financial needs and goals, before jumping into an official launch.
 CH5
CH8
How are you setting yourself apart from other designers?
I’ve never really looked at the fashion industry with the idea of either ‘fitting in’ or ‘standing out’. I enjoy staying up to date on both the creative and business end of fashion but, from a design perspective, I’ve always just done what feels good. Maybe that’s the secret to standing out- finding a balance of being creative and being smart with what will sell based on the current industry trends.
CH6
How can interested buyers purchase your pieces?
Send inquiries to caroline@carolinehayden.com
Can’t wait to see what she does for Fall 2014! Thank you Caroline for sharing your fashion insights with our readers!

Emerging Accessories Designer: VASKA

Today’s feature comes courtesy of Barcelona based luxury handbag brand Vaska!  Ann-Sofi Storbacka, the designer behind the brand, launched her first collection in 2012 and is one of the 2014 winners of the Future of Fashion Program by Not Just a Label and Who’s Next Trade Show in Europe. Ann-Sofi says her creations encompass “minimalist luxury” and this is very evident from the collection. Her pieces hold a certain richness and quality, clean angular lines and shapes perfect for that millennial on the go!

About Vaska

The brand Väska comes from the Swedish word for “bag” and is influenced by the Fenno-Swedish origins of the designer, following a very Nordic and pure line combined with a Mediterranean touch. The goal was to create a sustainable line of bags offering unique and contemporary interpretations of timeless styles with a high sense of effortless elegance and quality.

VS2VS3

About the collection: 

Aura is the first step towards a more refined and luxurious collection of minimalistic leather bags. The highlight of the collection is the introduction of sumptuous Nubuck with a soft and velvety texture, exclusively fabricated for Väska. Inspired by the fascinating geometric shapes of Origami, each bag consists of a single piece of leather folded into a unique and functional box structure. No stitching – only invisible brass hardware was used in the construction process, resulting in an innovative and timelessly elegant appeal. The pure and harmonious color scheme creates a perfect palette for summer and all year round.

VS6

We caught up with Ann-Sofi to shed some light on who she designs for, her inspirations and more…check out the interview below!

Who is the VASKA woman?

Väska leather bags are made for a modern woman with effortless elegance and sophistication. Like Väska, they are mysterious and fragile, but at the same time strong and independent. A Väska woman is also design-conscious and appreciates uniqueness, quality and timeless beauty.

Can you give us more information into the type of leather that you use?

All the bags are handmade, made of natural, vegetable-tanned leather of highest quality from Spain. Being vegetable tanned, the leather does not contain any harmful chemicals, which could potentially damage our environment. This kind of leather is very long-lasting and supple to touch, and it molds to any shape and gets even prettier with regular use and sunlight. In the latest AURA collection, I have introduced a new sustainable and luxurious material: Nubuck leather with a soft and velvety texture, exclusively fabricated for Väska.

We see the brand is inspired by Swedish design. How is this silhouette different from other types of design?

The combination of this Nordic simplicity and Mediterranean chic is what makes the brand unique. Apart from minimalistic designs and skilled craftsmanship, there are no stitches and each creation is folded from a single piece of leather into a unique and functional box structure with an innovative and timelessly elegant appeal.

VS5

Owning a business can be daunting. Do you have any advice for up and coming designers who are trying to strike a financial balance in managing their business?

Take one step at a time and have patience – it takes a while to get there. Also, stay true to yourself and follow your intuition – don’t forget what makes you unique and never let someone or something distract you. As a new designer, try to develop your skills as much as possible, gaining experience where you can and don’t be afraid to take risks. Start with the business online and then make it grow worldwide.

vaska

The collection is fairly new. Have you always been designing or did you switch careers?

I am multifaceted with a range of artistic interests and a diverse career background from languages and tourism to marketing, fashion and aviation. Even if I haven’t always been designing, all these experiences have helped me to get where I am now.

Please check out her website for more great pieces from handbags to cellphone and iPad cases. Special thanks to Ann-Sofi for sharing her brand with us! And don’t forget to like SM on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest!

PFW Event: Fred Marzo Boutique Opening Paris Fall/Winter 14/15 Collection

Fred Marzo Boutique Paris

This week, I had the pleasure to attend the Fred Marzo ‘s boutique opening in Paris. What I like about boutique openings is that you get not only to see the apparel and accessories closer but you get to meet in person the designer behind the brand and hear him talk abou the process behind each shoe and bags.

ABOUT FRED MARZO 

Frederick Foubet Marzorati aka Fred Marzo has gained solid experience working with Stephane Kelian, Christian Louboutin and Catherine Sartore owning and perfecting his skills as a shoemaker for the last three years creating collections for three of the big names in the shoe industry.

Inspiration: Vintage reworked, with a clever mix of elegance, the contemporary and sophistication. Creating shoes with a total shift in paradigm that has led to the quality, rarity and attention he devotes to the creation of his pieces.

With that said, for his fall /winter 14/15 collection the designer wanted to use soft fabric, fur with calfskin treated like foal leather, dipped lambskin and python with warm and refine tones that give each shoe a seductive, subtle,  delicate and luxury feel that invite women to not only wear his shoes but to do it with pleasure and confidence. Take a look at his fall/winter 14/15 collection below that also includes clutches. As always tell us your thoughts below.

Emerging Handbag Designer: Leyla Yucel

LY6

Today’s Emerging Designer feature comes courtesy of Leyla Yucel of Leyla Yucel Handbags. We love that her bags are not only intricately designed but functional for everyday use. We caught up with the young artisan to talk inspiration, money management and the woman she designs for ….

ABOUT LEYLA YUCEL

Leyla Yucel, the second of three children born to Turkish and Puerto Rican emigrants, was born in Brooklyn, NY, where she currently lives and works. She has worked in the design rooms of such brands as Kate Spade and Charlotte Ronson, in both creative and technical design roles.  In her own words, “As a designer, I think it’s very important to have a solid technical foundation.” Indeed, part of her preference for designing handbags over apparel is to have the freedom to utilize her extensive technical skills: “Bags are very sculptural and permit a lot of room for creativity but creating a structurally sound bag required extensive technical knowledge, which is a challenge I enjoy”.

LY3

THE COLLECTION

Leyla Yucel takes pride in always having drawn inspiration from disparate sources: Art highbrowed and low, classical and contemporary; Turkish tiles and Italian Futurism; science fiction and science fact.  She neither labels nor discriminates, nor harbors preconceived notions but, rather, takes on their own merit and terms those things that speak to her.  To quote English painter John Constable: ““There is nothing ugly; I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may, — light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful.” For the styling of her bags – the details and the mood she wanted them to evoke – she took cues from Twin Peaks. Her selection of burgundy microsuede lining for the interior of the bags, the Chevroned wings on her Palmer bag, and even the styling of her campaign photo shoot all reference the final episode’s strong, surreal imagery and styling — the red velvet curtain, the hypnotic chevron floor, as well as the film noir, femme fatale look of the character, Audrey Horne.

LY4

We love your pieces! What inspired you to pursue handbag/accessory design?

Thank you! I’ve found that my design process and my aesthetic lends itself well to handbags. I like how sculptural bags can be, and how much design can go into a single bag. There are many components to design – the structure, the hardware, the straps, the interior, and so forth. Also, there are a lot of technical and creative aspects to consider when designing a handbag, which I really like.

The fashion world is a very crowded place, everyone wants to be a designer! How are you setting yourself apart from the rest of the pack?

I hope that I’m setting myself apart by designing from a unique perspective: My references and inspirations tend to be unusual and eclectic varying from film and music by David Lynch to the science fiction by Philip K. Dick. I hope the resulting designs and projected style translates into a brand that is unique and desirable.

Managing a fashion brand can be daunting especially when it comes to the financial aspects. What advice can you offer up and coming designers regarding the business of fashion?

It is definitely difficult. I work for another designer full-time, which is how I’m financing my collection at the moment. For me, having a lot of technical skills and knowing Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop has saved me a lot of money. If you are looking to save money, you really have to do a lot of it yourself. However, you also have to know what you can do yourself and what you need to pay others to do–if you don’t have the skill, it is better to pay someone else that can do it properly.

Leyla - building the  photo set

Who is the Leyla Yucel woman ?

She has a modern look and is curious, cultured and a bit edgy. She loves design and fashion and is in constant pursuit of the covetable (fashion’s favorite word).

How can interested buyers purchase your pieces?

Good question! 🙂 My bags will be available to purchase at retail in Fall 2014. If you’re an interested wholesale buyer, please do e-mail me at leyla@leylayucehandbags.com.

Leyla’s eponymous collection of designer handbags will make its debut during the Fall/Winter 2014 season. MSRP $568-$1012.
