WORK SPACE

Photography by Thompson Chan 

Excited to share these photos of my work space with you, I believe every creative needs a space that feels like an extension of their mind where they are comfortable to spend endless hours. I have been lucky that my studio is in my house, there is plenty of space and it just feels right. It has such beautiful natural light, and the bright white walls makes it the perfect place to work and create. Most of the time the studio is clutter free and organized, but of course when it's time to cut fabric or develop new patterns the space gets pretty messy - it is part of the process. For interior decoration I keep it very minimal, I have a few of my personal favourite drawings and prints displayed, a marble top table (that unfortunately you don't get to see here), candles and music is always playing. What does your work space look like?

NOT SO BASIC

WEARING: Melissa Araujo Aime Dress, Melissa Araujo Diana LS Top, SheIn Crop Jacket,   Adidas Gazelle, American Apparel Socks, Breda Watch &  8 Other Reasons Rings & Dior Sunnies.

I don't wear a lot of dresses for my everyday life unless they are perfect and practical. I noticed that there is a lack of simple, comfortable and good quality dresses out there, so I decided to design and make my own. This is the MA Aime Dress, I wear it all the time, on its own, on top of leggings or pants and in this case layered with our own MA Diana LS Top. Seriously the comfiest combo ever. I added the bomber to toughen up my look a bit, while the side split makes it more exciting than your average mid dress.

Pair it with your favourite sneakers and you are good to go. I like to wear things that are versatile, the same dress or top can look completely different by just getting creative with the choice of accessories, shoes or outwear. The items are now up on our shop, and available for purchase; make sure to see what they look like on there own HERE and HERE.

IT'S WHAT'S UNDERNEATH

WEARING: Alexander Wang Top, JBrand Jeans, Fendi Bag, THP Cuffs, American Apparel Bra & Nasty Gal Heels.

As much as I love my tees and comfy bamboo jersey, I also like to wear things that are sheer and show a bit of what it is underneath. I have had this Alexander Wang top for a while, I still love it as much as the first day I got it. I have seen a lot of bras being used as a statement pieces in during shows in the last Fashion Week around the globe; used under or over tops and dresses. Bralettes with no wire or padding are still my go-to. If you come here often, you will know that I am more of a sneaker girl, but sometimes (even if very rarely) I put on a pair of heels. I do have to say that as I struggle with my walk something inside of me grows, and it is my attitude. I can see why some girls love wearing heels all the time.

ANGULAR SHAPES

WEARING: Jour/Ne Top, Acne Trousers, Alexander Wang Marion Bag, Nike Free, Ray-Ban Sunnies, Wylden & Pandora Rings and Breda Watch.

I continue to see a push toward angular and minimal shapes; this shift makes it easier for me to find items that I love. As an independent fashion designer and blogger I like simple looks that focus on quality, texture, fabric and shape. I am always looking for like-minded brands and people, so when shopping I look for unique shapes, great details and high level craftsmanship. This Jour-Ne top and these Acne trousers that I have owned for ages are perfect examples. Buy things that will last you more than a season, the same goes for accessories - I can't get enough of this Breda Watch, it adds the ultimate finishing touch to any outfit.
