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,

Deodorant Battle

It's not that I don't have a new travel post really but I want to mix thing up a little and add beauty post. Yes I will never be a beauty blogger but I do enjoy some beauty stuff and I love posting about it on my social media. Why not do it here from time to time. My blog - my rules. So here I am posting about deodorants. It was curious for me as I was send two options of the same line: spray and roll. Which one is better? I tested!

Spray dries faster and the scent is slightly less which I love. However I am never sure if I covered everything and also still not sure if spray is such a good option ecologywise.
Roll is can take more! I mean it, I ran almost 15 km with it and my armpits were actually the only dry spots I had (oops! disgusting, I know).

Each is awesome stain wise, even my black yoga pants went through bakasana which is always an issue with products. Generally I did like both products. Will probably stick to roll though, I mostly need deodorant for sports and it makes…

Zaraysk 2020

August gave so much energy and so many emotions over traveling. Close and far, to new places and not. Last week we have been to Zaraysk, a small town with big story some 150 km from Moscow (still same region though, Russia is big). We have been there last year but we loved it there so much we wanted to come back. And we had o chance to skip it as we are doing Running Series this year and want to run in each possible start this year. We registered on each successfully so all we need now is to actually complete the run.
Zaraysk was first mentioned in 1146 so it's technically older than Moscow. Originally it was a bordertown. Compact but effective fortress (or Kremlin in old-fashioned Russian way)  was built to protect the Ryazan Duchy and later on Great Moscow Duchy from the Tatars. Well this particular Tatar girl thinks she could call this trip a tie or one more win for Zaraysk. Kremlin looks very lively there and my favorite spot, the 1916  water tower gives great view. Bonus poin…

Add a layer

The last day of Summer was the hottest in Moscow during the whole recorded time. I didn't fully enjoy it frankly having tons of things to do. And so I did with the first day of fall as well. I kinda wished I was myself on the photos below: chilling and relaxed on a boat.
Today I don't only want to show the wonderful idea of boat style transitioning outfit but also show you my new item. So if you happen to be on a boat take a cardigan. On water even slight wind might feel colder especially when fall is right there. however it might be good to swim or sunbath so you might want to wear a bikini. Light cardigan is on to go item for such moment: just throw it right onto your swimsuit and enjoy the comfort and beauty. This purple babe is from Dear Lover. The they both wholesale and retail options so you will definitely find what suits you best. There are tons of cardigans and it is a joy! I have to admit when I feel the breath of autumn I tend to look at all the cardigans out there.…
