Young Designers Collective

I love learning new things and new brands and that's the main reason I love sharing new stuff with you so much! Young Designers Collective is a very unusual group of people. They design for non-profit organizations which is extremely cool. All products are of high quality (I do believe it's truth) and that's their way. The allow free exchange of ideas and want to revive the artist behind the designer. True artists, with extreme freedom in shapes and designs. Why do I write this" I've just read 'Design for giving' here

What to know more? Look, what i have found on their page
There is more about those people (info is quoted from their webpage)
Shilpa Iyengar- CEO of Young Designers Collective
After graduating from Parsons School of Design in 2012 I have been working to bring together fellow  designers, who on their own would not be able to gain as much exposure, and design collectively. Not only does a collective allow for a free exchange of ideas and talents, it fosters the growth of artists and art in commercial design as well as make more of an impact in the market. As an artist and designer, I use fashion as a platform to bring my love of art into a functional form. I let the concept guide me in whatever I design and hope to produce a wearable work of art in the process. Inspired by my travels across the world and
by my love of cultural history, I design clothing, shoes, hats, and textiles in hopes of bringing my vision to the public as painter would a painting. I also strive to be knowledgeable of both the garment and the material it is made from to achieve the best quality and comfort possible. For this reason I studied at Central St. Martins in London, where I was able to learn how to design textiles and gain a better understanding of fabric. Most of my work since has been printed and painted by hand and solidifies the idea of creating wearable art. Ultimately my goal is to put forth elegant, interesting, and unique works of wearable art that bring an appreciation to the art behind the design. For more information please visit my website: www.shilpaiyengar.com

Hanh Lam-Designer
Hanh Lam is a graduate of the Parsons School of Design. As a fashion designer, she alternates between her two primary interests: the organicity and the fluidity of knitwear, and the refinedness of old-world tailoring techniques. Her knitwear work is an exploration in manipulating raw materials into textural forms that are artistic, yet wearable. Her tailored pieces are often the result of personal obsession with arcane tailoring techniques, such as the German drated sleeves. Driving her pursuit are the principles that knitwear is about letting the raw material guide the hands, while tailoring is about taming and controlling the fabric. She currently lives and works in New York City, and can often be found doodling during her subway commute. www.hanhnyc.com

Harmony Pilobello-Designer
While pursuing a BFA in Fashion Design, Harmony Pilobello was fortunate enough to meet Professor Timo  Rissanen who was equipped with the skills to guide her through a junior and senior thesis focus in sustainability. While studying under him she was able to explore more about zero waste approaches in fashion design, including the Japanese Saori Handweaving technique. Now, she is using her design background to make one-of-a-kind garments and accessories that involve sourcing materials from small mills like Ardalanish: Isle of Mull Weavers in Scotland or sourcing for deadstock within New York City. Eventually, she would like to have seasonal collections dedicated to also sourcing from non-profit organizations that support women who fall under the poverty line, like the Awamaki Organization in Peru. She also hopes to pursue a PHD in fiber science and social enterprise.


Have a nice day,

Dear-lover swimsuit

Summer is here. I can feel it in the air. I am so consumed by great weather. And warmth also means I spend more and more time on a boat. And wear my boat uniform way more often. Interested what I call boat uniform? It is simple: it is a swimsuit. And if it is sea themed it is even better. Today I want to write about my new favorite item a swimsuit from Dear-lover
I was so happy to receive this swimsuit. the style was great and I really wanted something reminding me of sea. I think white and deep blue do so. Also one piece is not that easy to find when you are petite and don't opt to wear kids styles. I was excited with any option for Wholesale Women's Clothing but swimsuits are very special for summer. I am very happy with it.

The swimsuit fits nicely, the color stay still, the zipper on a back is very secured and hidden so I am sure no accidents might happen. The material dries fast enough. Also there are some small pads to make your chest look even better and provide some s…

Larnaca is love

More travel outfits! O really wanted to show you the final shots from Cyprus last February today. I loved this vacation so much! I do hope to come back there next year. This is the outfit I wore several times but it was captured during my the final 24 hours of the trip in Larnaca. We made a nice Cycling trip of 100 km to get here and after reaching the goal took a long walk next to the sea. Visited couple of well known and love antique shops and generally chilled. Shirt kept me warm, dress made feel pretty and flip flops made my tired after cycling feet happy. Perfect harmony.
I don't think any post about vacation is complete without a bunch of sightseeing shots so there you have it:







And several more photos from Limassol. There was a festival with a little scary and funny huge dolls. I want you to see that too:







Dear Lover, dress

Remember last week I promised you to show my new dress? Technically you might already see a  sneak-pic from our boat last week but still. So I am going to tell you about my next casual summer dress from Dear-Lover
At first I will tell you about the dress itself. This Dear-Lover wholesale dress is charming! It easy to wear and doesn't ask for many accessories. it is colorful but not too light in color so I don't need to worry about it getting dirty too easy (hello short summer trips and parks with sitting on the grass moments). It is made from a very good material which doesn't get wrinkles. Overall: perfect for casual days, will pack it for trips.

Secondly I want to tell my shopping experience. It was easy to pick and look for items. The delivery was super fast. I am so thankful for the brand to ever offering me to cooperate with  Wholesale Women's Clothing. I am super pleased with everything about the cooperation. Thank you so much Dear Lover! This shop is a Lover…
