Charles Youssef

CFDA awardee Charles Youssef presented his Fall/Winter 2016 collection at Milk Studios during New York Fashion Week. His label represents the metropolitan, modern woman and emphasises on elegance, form and function. Set in a dreamy landscape, his fall collection exuded ethereal beauty and luxury balanced with the minimalistic, pleated style of Japanese origami.
His attention to detail, construction and tailoring is absolutely impeccable! Dramatic voluminous shapes, billowy sleeves, full flowing skirts were paired with nipped waists to accentuate the female form.


For his fall collection he used mostly white to add a refreshing contrast to black and shades of indigo, purple, grey and fuchsia. Satin skirts were paired with cashmere sweaters, crisp white collared shirts with tailored pants and dresses with exquisite pleated detailing and patterns.


I loved the structured origami inspired white coats and the white, purple and black colour blocked dress with organza sleeves. Which one of the outfits caught your eye? Let me know in the comments below.

NYFW Desigual Spring 2017

Vibrant and fearless, Desigual’s latest collection shown at New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2017 embodies the free spirit of global travelers and strong women who traveled to remote places to fight for their personal freedom and left their legacy for women in the 21st century.

Cultural influences from around the world are beautifully integrated into their designs such as ethnic motifs, macrame and crochet knits, bohemian prints and chinoiserie florals.

There are 48 looks in this year’s collection that comprises of ready to wear separates.  From the ethnic ruffle military jacket over a crochet jeweled-bee-embroidered gown to the indigo-dyed long cardigan over a tie-dye maxi dress, the collection portrays the vast territories of a great adventure with the eternal magic of traveling. The models wore Snapchat filters as their makeup looks, completing their resort collection with a playful vibe.

If you are a huge fan of traveling in style, you can’t walk away from Desigual’s Spring Summer 2017 collection. What I love about their ensembles is that they are so easy to mix and match to portray your individual style.

Making a Splash with Harry Martin Underwater


Looking for ways to cool off during the summer? How about going underwater in something fabulous? I had an amazing opportunity to model for an underwater photo shoot with Harry Martin Underwater. Harry Martin is an Emmy Award winning TV journalist who has anchored the 10 O’Clock News at My9 and The 6 PM news on Fox 5 New York.

He has expanded his passion for photography with his project “Harry Martin Underwater,” which captures beautiful fashion and glamour underwater.  Neiman Marcus Paramus featured his work for the “Art of Fashion” event.

I absolutely loved working with him and his team. It was a challenge to pose effortlessly underwater but it was all worth it!

Some of my photos from his shoot were selected for display at the Marriot Hotel in Boyton Beach, Florida and were also featured in his book.

Dannijo X Cointreau La Soiree



Summer is the perfect time to throw parties, or as the French will call it – soirees. The Art of La Soiree with Dannijo X Cointreau event was an elegant affair to get inspired on how to throw a beautiful cocktail party!



Who would know style better than Danielle and Jodie Snyder – the sisters behind the trendy jewelry label “Dannijo” themselves? Their jewelry is sold on Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman among several high end stores. Celebrities such as Rihanna, Beyonce and Kendall Jenner are also fans of their jewelry line.




Just as exquisite as their fashion label, their event definitely set the bar onto how to add a touch of glamour to hosting a party. Cointreau – the famous French liqueur brand also provided special cocktails and recipes for us to try. We even got to mix our own signature drink with our preferred ingredients at the bar. Cointreau has a sweet, orange flavor which tastes great when it’s mixed with fruit juices or even muddled together with fresh berries, citrus and herbs. It does make it the perfect drink for summer!




I really loved how beautiful and grand the whole place looked. There were harpists playing melodious music along with the DJ.  Arches of real orange branches decorated the ceiling,  Dannijo’s latest pieces of jewelry adorned statues of greenery and there were crystals, flowers and candles everywhere.





We also were invited to sit down to have dinner at an opulent dining table that was absolutely breathtaking. French lavender was the inspiration behind it so was laden with  violet goblets, amethyst crystals and floral arrangements within glass prisms. To top it off, we were served with lavender lemonade mixed with the Cointreau.  Did you know that the lavender flower is edible? It adds a lovely flavor to drinks and food. I  just loved how it all the intricate details came together to present the color in such an elegant way. Lavender also happens to be one of my favorite flowers for its evocative scent and relaxing properties.





I absolutely adored everything about the event – from the stunning decor, amazing cocktails and delicate French food. I soaked up some wonderful ideas on how to throw a stunning party that will definitely be a hit this summer!

Met Gala 2016: Manus X Machina Press Preview



The Met Ball is one of the most star-studded and glamorous events of the year where celebrities, influential fashion icons and designers attend the unveiling of the Costume Institute’s new exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

I was lucky enough to attend the press preview in the morning before the gala. This year’s theme for the exhibition is called Manus X Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology.





Anna Wintour and museum curator Andrew Bolton gave an opening speech to tell us more about the the exhibition. Manus X Machina explores the co-relationship of couture that is made by hand (manus) and the machine (Machina).





Manus X Machina shows the history of how fashion has evolved over the years, from the founding of hand made haute couture, the invention of the sewing machine which has helped with the mass production of clothes, to the present day when technological advances such as 3D printing, laser cutting and computer graphics are used to create couture and ready-to-wear fashion.




The collection of 90 stunning ensembles features a diverse range of outfits from handcrafted haute couture,  to 3D printed designs from the top fashion labels in the world such as Christian Dior, Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Alexander McQueen.




At the entrance, a magnificent Chanel wedding dress with a gold studded 20 feet long train made a grand impression. The dress is made of scuba knit while the baroque design on the train was hand drawn by Karl Lagerfeld and then digitally manipulated to create a randomised, pixelated pattern.



Other haute couture ensembles on display are adorned with hand-sewn embellishments, appliqués, sequins,feathers and flowers and excellent craftsmanship.




A great example are the ethereal Venus and Janun gowns from Christian Dior shown on the left that are hand appliquéd with tulle petals and hand embroidered with sequins. The Alexander McQueen dress on the right is decorated with beaded silver paillettes that were sewn by hand onto the dress.




Chanel had another breathtaking, ethereal wedding gown on display which is covered with at least 2500 handmade camellias and ostrich feathers, all sewn onto the dress by hand!



There are a wide range of futuristic dresses as well such as the gold metallic “Kaikoku” Floating dress designed by Hussein Chalayan. It is remote controlled on wheels, allowing it to float on the floor and release 50 crystal “pollen spores.”



The spiky, out-worldly headpiece and bolero ensembles befittingly entitled as ” Atmospheric Reentry” by Japanese designer Maiko Takeda were so fascinating to look at and reminded me of a science fiction movie. Maiko Takeda was also present at the preview, wearing another one of her mind-blowing headpieces. She explained that despite its futuristic appearance, the designs are made of hand-cut acetate fringes and acrylic squares that are all assembled by hand.





One of the outstanding ensembles that caught my eye is this “bird dress” designed by Iris Van Herpen. It is made from laser cut silicone “feathers”  that are stitched onto the outfit by hand, to create a magnificent cloak that a fantasy character would wear in a movie.



Gareth Pugh turned the humble drinking straw into a work of art, by embroidering hundreds of straws onto his outfits. That’s taking the idea of recycling everyday, overlooked items unto another level of awesomeness!


Alexander McQueen’s stunning “Cape Feather Dress,” designed my Sarah Burton was  inspired by the patterns on a moth’s wing. Although it looks as if the exquisite pattern was digitally printed, it was actually made up of thousands of feathers of varying colors, each and every feather being cut and stitched by hand onto the dress.




These are just a few of the examples of the fascinating and remarkable designs on display. It was enlightening to learn more about the evolution of fashion. I could only imagine the hours of hard labour and artistic direction behind every outfit.




To visit the exhibition, look for the Robert Lehman Wing and Anna Wintour Costume Center at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is only open to the public from May to August 14.  I am sure you will be enchanted by not only the beauty of these works of art, but you will also appreciate to learn more about the history of haute couture and the construction of every outfit. It is a must see for all fashionistas and aspiring fashion designers to get inspired!

Rocky Gathercole Fall 2016 Art Hearts Fashion

Hollywood designer Rocky Gathercole ended the finale of Art Hearts Fashion Week with big bang!

The Filipino designer renowned for his outrageous, avant garde designs dazzled the audience with his Fall/Winter 2016 collection of a golden mirage of fantasy pieces inspired by Greek and Roman mythology.


Models strutted down the runway in a glamorous array of works of art, from larger than life headpieces in the shape of golden Aries horns, Minnie Mouse ears to glittery cage corset dresses and outlandish bustiers embellished with dragons, cobras and firebirds.

He also designed some sexy intricately beaded bodysuits with gold fringes that moved with mesmerising perfection as the models sashayed down the runway. His stunning dresses also had full tiered skirts and elaborate metallic bustier decorations.

The men looked like fierce Roman gladiators, with laurels on their heads and golden chains hanging on their buff bodies. One of them wore a huge shoulder shield and a golden deer skull over his black shorts.


The finale dress was a showstopper, a full length costume of a beautiful lace gown and an extravagant golden Phoenix headpiece complete with wings.



I have never been so amazed by a fashion show, every outfit was so extraordinary, exquisitely crafted and larger than life. They look like they belong to a fantasy Hollywood movie about Gods and warriors. You have to see the outfits to believe it. I’m so blessed to have witnessed a visual reverie of legends come to life.


Thank you Art Hearts Fashion Week for another stunning finale!

Stello Official Fashion Show

Stello Official brought us to the far East with their latest collection called Yuki-Onna. The dynamic collection is inspired by Japanese fashion, with metallic samurai-like silhouettes complete with shoulder pads and spiked accessories. Some of the sheer dresses are embellished with oriental floral motifs and patterns.

Flowing pants, kimono-style ensembles, structured bustiers were also part of the collection. The use of cut-outs and high slits added a sensuous element to the outfits. The color palette of black, gold, red and silver made a strong impact with the use of  lustrous leather, silk, lace and metallic fabrics. The men also wore tailored pants with metallic jackets.  The model’s sleek hairstyles were accented with chopsticks that twisted their hair into elegant half up-dos.

A memorable moment was the appearance of a contortionist who walked on the runway with her body bent over backwards at a steep 45 degree angle so her hands touched the floor, something that I thought was humanly impossible.


The collection blends sensuality and femininity with a tough edge. It made a fashion statement that challenged the idea of Asian fashion – it doesn’t have to be conservative, it can be elegant, flowing and provocative at the same time.

Mimi Tran Art Hearts Fashion

Vietnamese fashion designer Mimi Tran showcased her Fall Winter 2016 Optical Illusion collection at Art Hearts Fashion Week. Mimi Tran grew up in Paris and her Vietnamese heritage created a sophisticated influence of both east and west in her designs.

Her collection exuded elegance and Parisian chic while accentuating the female figure. I love her attention to detail as the dresses were exquisitely embellished with lace, sequins, beads and floral appliques to create beautiful patterns which is probably how the collection got its name.

Solid shades of royal blue, gold and the bright oriental floral motifs accentuated the primary color black, which is also the color that the French love to wear. Fine fur stoles and long leather gloves completed the look of  timeless glamour.

For the finale, Miss new York walked out in an understated yet elegant white lace wedding gown.


What are your favorite looks from the show? Let me know in the comments below.

Think Pink for Spring


One of the most welcoming  signs of spring is when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, adding dreamy splashes of pink to the streets and parks. Just like Japan, New York also celebrates the cherry blossoms and arrival of springtime at the Sakura Masturi Festival which starts from April 30th to May 1st.


Pink and white are great colors to wear in spring, as they are such fresh and uplifting colors just like the cherry blossoms themselves. They also complement each other well and they also look good with a wide range of colors such as blue, green, yellow and gray.


Here, I’m wearing a vintage white lace dress with bell sleeves and a shaggy pastel pink fur coat from Urban Outfitters. It’s a simple combination with a contrast of textures. I’ve accessorized my outfit with a tassel necklace from Kendra Scott, a floral clutch from Aldo and booties (although it can’t be seen in the pictures).


What aspects of nature inspire your looks for spring? If you love cherry blossoms as much as I do, take a look at my fashion picks that are inspired by these delicate flowers!

Floral Fashion with Pantone Colors of 2016




Spring is one of the most beautiful times of the year and a season of new beginnings. Nature awakens from its winter slumber and brings forth beautiful myriads of colors from the greenery and flowers. I would of course seize the opportunity to flaunt my new floral dresses in the spirit of spring. Besides, floral prints and pastels will always be in season.




Speaking of new beginnings, for the first time ever, Pantone has two shades for the color of the year, a tranquil blend of the feminine and masculine, soft warm pink called Rose Quartz and Serenity – a pale, cool shade of baby blue. It challenges traditional perceptions of color association and celebrates gender equality and fluidity.

This has inspired me to wear a delicate pastel pink and blue floral chiffon dress for my shoot. The flowers on the  dress are also embroidered with gold thread which gives it some extra sparkle. The dress is designed by popular New York designer Nicole Miller and I’m also wearing a necklace from  Kendra Scott, another designer from the city. For my makeup I used Urban Decay’s Naked Eyeshadow Palette and Blusher for a petal soft, naturally flushed look.




How would you like to dress up for Spring? If you’re looking for a fresh bouquet of flowers that you want to wear, look no further! I’ve made a list out of spring’s hottest picks for you!
