MaJac Collection: interview

Today I have an exciting post! Finally a new interview. This time it is a small and black owned brand MaJAc Collection. We know each other from Instagram (make sure to out her beautiful gram) and I am absolutely in love with her styles. I know you will love her creations as much as I did so dared to ask her for an interview. Today I am sharing it with you. Please meet Marie Lovely Eloi.

1 It may be a boring question but it is always curious. How did you start MaJAc Collection?

MaJAc Collection started when me and my husband started dating. As a young child, I’ve never had any interest in sewing until my last year in University. In 2013, i bought a sewing machine at Walmart and a few yards of fabric, elastic. I went on YouTube searching for circle skirt from there i made my first piece. A few years, i explained to my husband how i wished to sew like my mom. That’s how MaJAc ( mah-djak) started. At first it was MaJAc Designs then changed into MaJAc Collection.

2 What was the very first product you ever designed for MaJAc Collection?

The very first piece that hit my IG was a green african print gown with orange train. I made that piece for one of my friends. She was attending a wedding and that was when everybody knew i sew. I felt overjoyed that day
 
3 There are lots and lots vibrant and magical patterns in your collections. Where do you find inspiration for them?

Laugh... i love bright colors because they make me happy and i find most of my inspiration on Pinterest. Plus, i follow Stella Jean’s works. She mixes prints beautifully.

4 How does being a mother help you to be a better designer?

Honestly, I’m not a designer yet which I’d like to be one. As a new mom, i encounter a lot of challenges, but i always try to balance both. 

5 the last question is something I always ask designers. they say creative people always do something about their toys when they are little. I know a hairdresser who made new short hair cuts for each doll overnight. Did you do something like that when you were little?

Unfortunately, I’ve never dreamt of being a “designer “. At first, i wanted to be a dancer, model, and singer. So, no i never destroyed my toys.

  2. Congrats on your first collection interview. I have to say you sew really well and yes, sometimes life puts us on paths that are completely different from what we wanted. Who knows, you just might end up being a designer. Keep doing you.

  4. Great interview with Marie Lovely Eloi. Glad that she proves that what you did with your toys in the past doesnt preview your future or else I would be an undertaker cause most of my G.I. Joes are buried in the backyard of my childhood home.
    I do love Marie's designs though. These colors and patterns are so unique and pop. I really like that green dress and of course that pink and purple skirt is awesome. Love that her mom's skills in sewing helped motivate her to learn and become a better seamstress and ultimately a unique designer.

What is love?

.. baby, don't hurt me, don't hurt me... OK, I know, it's lame but I couldn't help it. Really. Today I want to share my new watch and talk about upcoming Valentine's Day. My latest Instagram post is very romantic and everything but I do want to keep this particular post more down on Earth. For me love is everything and more. I can see and feel love in so many things but I do see it in this particular person everyday and I see all over him. For me he is Love. I have received watch from Nordgreen last week and I wear it all the time. I love the minimal style, my favorite deep shade of blue and lightness on my wrist. Nordgreen is Copenhagen based minimalist brand. It pays a lot of attention to our environment and tries to be as sustainable as they currently can which I personally adore. They are a sustainable Danish brand, who works hard to provide environmentally-friendly packaging with upcycled felt & cartons, carbon-neutral shipping, and to give back throug

Green Sign

I wore this outfit on numerous occasions but never took photos. It's so comfortable and easy to assemble I didn't even feel it as an outfit until the moment I realized I am lacking content for my blog. It was a little chilly but the sun was shining brightly which made me definitely want to go. The photos turned out lovely. We took right at the local park entrance with vintage wooden sign stating the park name. You might notice my irregular hair here. yes I am 100% strait hair person at all times. But there I braided my hair went and kept it braided (two braids if you are curious) for 24 hours. It lasted for about an hour but I enjoyed it nevertheless. My whole family has curly hair, everyone but me. I don't mind really but sometimes I wish I had I curly at least as curly as you see above (I did always wanted my sister's curls which is something between of 3c and 4a I think). Also coordination of green is still new to me. I though green is not my color when I was

Back with outfit

And I am finally back to outfit posting. I originally planned to post it simultaneously with my Instagram outfit but things do not always go as planned. Anyway, there you have it. Technically it's my last outfit of 2020 we wore it for our annual theater time. I can't way the play was good but it wasn't bad either, I saw a lot in common with my personal vision of 2020 as year here. I wore long skirt and a sweater here. I am crazy about funny pattern and I like now the colors mix. It's rare for me but both items are from the same brand, Akhmadullina Dreams. yes, it's Russian and I absolutely love it, mostly for quirky and funny prints and embroidery. My green sweater with bright fluffy red fox is from the same brand as well as my botanical dress. The boots are very old but I don't wear them often. I always wonder why, though. I should wear it more often.   I was wearing: c/o iGlasseshop glasses Akhmadulla Dreams sweater and skirt Empodium boots   Hav
