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,

What's in my bag?

I never did such post and really wanted to fill in the blanks here. Moreover I wanted to do it because I recently got two items which are hard to show in the outfit but are part of my daily life and style for sure. Plus it's it fun to have a closer look in my daily life? That's why I want to show you my bag contents.

When I'm not wearing a backpack which usually means I have a sports uniform inside or planning or carry something more or less big or going for some travels (so I need my hands as free as possible) I tend to use smaller scale bags. The point is to have only minimum of necessary things with me and not to loose something important. This time I'm featuring my recently most loved bag by NewChic (you can shop it here).

Usually I have a wallet with me. When who doesn't? We still money to life, right? It is my very new and super comfy wallet which was provided by great company NewChic I recently posted two posts with their awesome items here and here.
My hair…

Roses

Sorry, I've been super-busy lately. I'm actually kinda busy right now as well, but I'm trying to do my best to work on the blog!
This post is made form 2 outfits, both having its centre in shoes. I'm in love with this babes! The heel is high for me (11,5 sm) but still this shoes are comfy! Can walk and walk but nothing would worry me.
Heels do always add classyness to any outfit, make it more alive... Less words, more action - let's see my shoes!

Прошу прощения, я была очень-очень занята. Я в действительности занята и сейчас, но я очень стараюсь оставить пост.
Этот пост состоит из 2 нарядов, оба постоены на туфлях. Я так люблю этих крошек! Каблук высоковат для меня (11,5 см) но тем не менее эти туфли удобные! Могу ходить и ходить, но ничто не беспокоит меня.
Каблуки всегда добавляют стиля любому наряду, делают его более живым... Меньше слов, больше дела - посмотрим на мои туфли!


I was wearing:
Tatum dress
Iron Fist heels
Colin's belt
leather jacket


I don't re…

A glass of water

I am planning on full term good post during the weekend. But I really wanted an update today so... Here it is! My super comfy look, something I often wear when I don't really want to think much of my looks but still look relaxed and stylish: a jumpsuit, long coverup or cardigan or kimono, soft heelless shoes.
I wore this as you might have already guessed to the theater yesterday. It is probably last one for me till the next season in fall. It was super fun. It was a English comedy play about Queen Anna and her court: politics, love and war. The play is called 'Glass of Water', that is why I named my post that way. We enjoyed it so much even though we were not planning it very forward, only getting tickets 3 days before (we normally plan at least month ahead).
P.S. My leg is ok now

On me:
Monki jumpsuit
Viktoria Tretyak cover up

Have a nice day, Lyosha
