I feel so happy and grateful, everytime I finish a new project;  and this is not an exception. I met Yazmin last year while we were both living in Milan and she told me she had a fashion blog called The Hippie Nerd. After that we've been following each other constantly, I mean... we are dominican and we love fashion = perfect bound! 

A few months ago, she needed my services; she wanted to re-styled her blog and that's how this project begun. After a complete research of fonts, ideas and layouts we decided to stay very minimal, sleek design so all her posts can stand out; and little touch of red to emphasis the links and the social media icons. The original template is from Wordpress but I customized the color, fonts, categories, width and other little details according on what she was looking for. 
Yesterday, when I showed her the new look she was thrilled... I couldn't ask for anything more! 

Thanks for trusting in me, Yaz!

::I WISH::

I wish I could be there right now, drinking piña colada... instead, I'm in my office trying to figure out how to create a iPad App, when I'm actually a fashion designer/stylist! Yes, sometimes it seems like I can do magic. Wish me luck!

Have you ever thought of making popsicles mixed with flowers? Marla Meredith from Family Fresh Cooking made them and there are so lovely! A perfect sweet treat for a baby or bridal shower, I coudn't resist to be inspired by the textures and colors.... and talking about "weddings"; don't you think there has been a lots of weddings this year? Hmm.. think about it while you enjoy my "eternal summer" style look for this week.

Key words: fresh, casual, girly, romantic
Color palette: pop-bright summer colors; pink, orange and green with touches of beige
The look: classic-chic girly outfit, perfect for an afternoon meeting or, as I mention before, a baby or bridal shower.

Lately, I have been working a lot with too many different projects. I can't complain, I'm grateful for all the good things God have given me in the last couple of months. However, sometimes it's very stressful,  time flies and it seems like I won't be able to finish all my duties and; at the same time, it becomes difficult to keep up with my normal social life. Panic!

I was doing some research, and I found this poster; it works perfectly. I'm going to print it out and paste it on my wall. A reminder/promise that I will  always stay creative. 

Happy friday!

Aww...This is the last post of NYFW Diary SS'13 (sniff, sniff) So this is how it goes:

I was invited to Nolcha Fashion Week, and let me tell you more about this event: Nolcha is presented during Mercedes Fashion Week, and is a platform for new designer to showcase their collection. Every year, brands from all around the world; Turkey, Peru, Swaziland, Dubai, Thailand, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Los Angeles and the United Kingdom get the chance to present their ideas. 

The event was very organized, their PR people were so nice to me (I even got front row seat.. yeay, so a special thanks to them!); it wasn't a big stage where you can have 500 attendees, only the right people in the fashion industry and lots of major celebrities like: Katrina Bowden (30 Rock), Bryan Greenberg (HBO's How To Make It In America), Eric Benet (Recording Artist), Gary Forbes (Houston Rockets), Stephane Lasme (Boston Celtics), Mya (Recording Artist), Zuzanna Szadkowksi (Gossip Girl) and more. Big plus! because right now that's what a new designer needs, a good crowd that would like to invest in their ideas. 

My two favorite shows were: Angelys Balek and Gulschachereli. The first designer was colorful and fun, simple and clean silhouettes but with an amazing cut-out laser technique. Wonderful detail. The second one played a lot with the construction and deconstruction of the forms with minimal silhouettes. Feminine dresses and lots of pleats details. There was a neutral palette of color for almost the entire collection (beige, white, black), and quick touches of aquamarine on 2-3 garments. A very nice surprise!

Last but not least, an special page: My adventures with Sager from Glint Trends. We had so much fun; from partied with super models at the Tribeca Hotel to out private ride to Lincoln Center , thanks to The Cut. Priceless. (I stole the pictures from Sager's instagram .. follow her @sagpd)

As always, New York you never disappoint me. See you next fashion week! Xoxo
