Emily Rose, the interview

Today I have something special made for you, an interview. Not long ago I went by a lovely newly launched online shop Emily Rose, became charmed by the styles and decided to tell you about in best possible way: making an interview.

1 how did Emily Rose start? Why did you decide to turn your art into fashion?
 
I have always been into art, drawing painting, sculpting, and photography. I just love creating! I studied art education at Long Island University in New Yorkto become an art teacher. My first year of teaching I was required to teach fashion, I had to teach myself and I found the art of fashion inspirational. My website originally started as my online art portfolio just to showcase my art. I created my website myself by watching lots of tutorials, I was not trained in web development. I always thought it would be cool to mass produce something since it makes it more affordable for other to make purchases than to buy my original pieces. I looked around the internet for print on demand shops and used a trial and error process to see which one was right for me. I landed on Printful (prinful.com) to help produce my products. I started with an etsy shop and it was great to begin with but it only lasted about a week until I decided to sell through my own website. I chose to do this because I had a lot more control over the features, set-up, and management, for example starting my affiliate program. I created everything myself, from the branding, logo, website, social media, marketing, and I am always learning and improving!
2 what was the first Emily Rose product?
 
This was the first Emily Rose product created. Originally I was asked to do this piece for a nonprofit exhibition. This was originally a 10 inch drawing of a frog using markers and pencils on a wood panel. The original piece sold and the money went toward the North Fork Environmental Council in Long Island.

3 where do you find inspiration for artwork? How do you decide it’s fit for the shop?

I find inspiration everywhere! I just keep creating and if I like the piece, I put it in my shop. I think I would describe my artwork as fun and surreal. I heard a great quote once “Don’t make art your life, live a great life and make art about it.” That is how I choose to live. I have great experiences, and what I create is subconsciously influenced by it. I love to travel and meet people. I have been to multiple countries in Europe, China, and Israel so far.
4 what is your favorite thing/object to work on illustrations for fashion items? I see a lot of animals

I love creating portraits. I create many portraits of people in black and white acrylic. I notice my Rapper Face Mask have been really popular. I also lately have been painting lots of rainbow animals. I enjoy making them because I think they are fun a unique. I think that my art is always changing and evolving. I think faces tell a story. Even in the animals I paint, I think each one has a personality of its own. I put myself into everyone of my artworks.

5 does teaching help to boost you creativity? Do you students wear you styles?

This is a great question. Teaching is inspiring. Being an art teacher and seeing the creativity helps me stay current and think creatively. At this time my students do not know about my shop because we just launched. However I always show them my artwork to inspire them, to show them the possibilities, and push them to the next level. Having taught fashion design, I think I have more of the expressive and eccentric students that have interesting and unique styles that definitely influence my views of fashion and what it can be.


6 It’s little something I ask everyone I take interviews of: people say that talented in art, fashion and/or design kids modify their toys and remaking the dolls costumes as their first experiments. My hairdresser for example made new stylish haircuts to all of her dolls in a hour time when she was five. Did you do something alike? and if you did, what was it?

I was always extremely artistic as a child. My dad felt that drawing was just as important as reading and writing and encouraged me in the arts. I was always painting and drawing, and I loved drawing people. I was never really that good skill wise as a child. I was not a prodigy artist. However, I had the motivation and drive to learn and hone my skills overtime. I then began digital photography when I was 10 with my first point and shoot camera. This developed my artistic eye for composition, color, values, etc.. I then used these skills to conquer other artistic mediums moving to drawing, then paint and eventually sculptures, through applying previous knowledge.

  1. These products look amazing, I love the art style. And how wonderful that the frog design got sold and the money went to environmental causes, that makes the business even more amazing. Thanks for sharing their interview, it's lovely to hear how others start and develop their business.

  2. I hope the items can be easily reused or taken back for upcycling. There is so much fast fashion and textile waste happening.

Cat-eye and blue: Glassesshop GUDVUE glasses review

You do know I have a lot of glasses. Like really a lot but I do wear them all and this luxury allows me to store a pair everywhere I might need it which is a blessing for a person who wears glasses occasionally, not all the time. I don't have to look for different pair, I just grab what I have near by. I am so spoiled. And am spoiled even more by wonderful and beloved by me shop Glassesshop.com They have a new brand GUDVUE and they offered me two pairs for a review. Today I want to tell about about my new most worn frames. Big, cat-eye and blue. Do I really need anything more? Yes I do. You know I always vouch for quality when it goes for Glasseshop but here they outdid themselves. It not feel great, it feels lux! And I definitely LOVE it. As always light but not too much, perfectly fit for my face (as well as overall quality), the lens are so good, I love the screen protection so much! Awesome! I am sorry for being so positive about it, I just can't find any flaw. Even the

Cute Leaf

It's been awhile since I posted a simple outfit. Something I wore for no actual reason just to enjoy myself. It's actually feels great to be able to post an outfit that is just, well, an outfit. I like the calm grey-ish tone of it. I felt relaxed and ready to enjoy the golden leaves and even post with one of them. This particular leaf suffered a horrible end: instead of being a nourishment for trees it became a toy for my pups to be torn in pieces and eaten.   I was wearing: Jil Sander boots Monki bag Uniqlo Heattech turtleneck H&M cardigan c/o Moon Love necklace   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

November Sunglasses Review: Glassesshop

Review time! You know I have a long term love and partnership with glasses shop Glassesshop . I have far more than just one pair of glasses from them and I do enjoy and love each. Last week I told you about the new brand Gudvue and regular prescription glasses. This time I want to share my sun glasses. Yes I agree it's not the best time to wear sun glasses in Moscow but it's not like my sunnies gonna run anywhere. Actually as soon I saw some sun coming out of the clouds (November is very grim and dark in Moscow) I took my husband out on a date while rocking my new sunnies. The frames are lightweight, big enough and cover from sun nicely. Not too dark so you can see things. I also had it done with lens to improve my vision and as always it worked great. Slight polarization is a nice bonus to me. The quality is superb, it doesn't feel good, it feel posh and lux. I am shocked how expensive it looks and feels because in real life it is not. As always I highly recommend you to
