L.A. LOVE







WEARING: H&M x Margiela Men's Blazer, Melissa Araujo's Batwing Dress, Splendid Shirt, and Alexander Wang Kori boots.

LA no matter how long the last visit was when I arrive it is like I never left; it feels like home. The people's attitude, fashion and weather are so inspiring. This past week was pretty intense, filled with meetings, visiting different LA head offices for contemporary fashion such as Splendid, Ella Moss, and 7 For All Mankind. I feel honoured I was invited to see the behind the scenes of these brands. Not only the actual head offices were cool with fierce beautiful people, it was a great way to see beyond fashion as clothing and instead see the business side of things.

It was such an eye opener, now more than ever I know exactly what I want. Such an humbling experience to put everything into perspective, my goals, dreams, brand, work and knowing where I come from and where I want to go. I feel overly excited and inspired, expect nothing than 150% hard work for my next collection. Starting this month I will be gathering my visual inspirations and making my mood board. Missing LA already and all the high energy it gives me. Reaching for the stars, moon and sun ♡.

I'm dying to visit LA, whenever I hear others talk about it they always make it seem like such an amazing place.
