Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! Today I am bring you some seriously good shades for your closets. Shady Sluts is a sunglass company based out of L.A.  I had the chance to wear the classic in black (seen above). Shady Slut eyewear is extremely light yet durable. They look great with just about everything.  These sunglasses are perfect for the summer or going on vacation during this cold winter season.

Heavy on Fashion talks to Ronit Genik creator of Reverie Collection

Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! I am happy to talk to the designer of the Reverie Collection, Ronit Genik. Ronit is originally from Israel, grew up in Brooklyn, New York. With a degree from Parsons School of Design, Ms. Genik developed a her own fashion line.

This is a look at the Spring/Summer'14 Collection is inspired by Light - through fabrications, prints and unique techniques. Sheer silks create beautiful overlays and play on light through colors and silhouettes. Prints are inspired by nature made and man made- dreamy clouds, electric lightening and enigmatic bulbs. Exclusive printed clutches in Silk twill and Leather are added this season. 

I love love love this collection and I am so happy to talk to the creator of Reverie Collection - Ronit Genik



When did you realize you wanted to become a fashion designer?

I realized at a young age that I loved fashion- I was always sewing, creating accessories and sketching, coming up with new designs. 
My mother also loved vintage and designer clothing, so I grew up looking through Vogue and other fashion magazines and borrowing her clothes.

What's your favorite part about conceptualizing a design?

My favorite part about conceptualizing a design is telling a story- creating and researching the concept behind each design. I design my own prints, so that is a big part of my process and inspiration behind each collection. My inspirations are always very fluid and come from many places, from street fashion, to art and sculpture. Sometimes ideas come from the most unexpected places!




What is your favorite part about being a fashion designer?

My favorite part about being a fashion designer is the process of creating my vision and concept for each season, but I also love to see people wearing the clothes and feeling special and unique in them.

How would you define the style your line exemplifies?

I would define the style Reverie exemplifies as feminine, making a bold statement, keeping it edgy, but with a sense of fun. 



What are your favorite colors to work with and why?

I don't have a favorite color scheme as it changes with the season and concept, but I love rich, bright colors juxtaposed against black and neutral colors.
I love unexpected color statements, so I try to mix it up and keep it interesting.
Colors are a great way to express yourself and can really affect your mood and attitude that day, so I really think about that when designing.

What three word would describe Reverie S/S 2014 Collection?

Three words that describe the S/S14 Collection are whimsical, bold statement, edgy



Describe the Reverie woman.

The Reverie woman is a confident, unique woman to embodies youthful edge and personal style.

If you had the chance to dress *anyone* who would it be?

If I had the chance to dress "anyone", I would love to dress Natalie Portman. She is a very confident, talented woman that takes risks in her career and on the red carpet.



What do you hope to have achieved in the industry, 10 years from now? 

 I hope to keep growing as a brand, developing into more areas like accessories, shoes and jewelry. 
I would love to create a lifestyle brand that incorporates all aspects of a woman's wardrobe.         


Finally What does fashion mean to you?

Fashion means being confident, empowered and having a strong sense of individuality and style. 

It is also important to have fun with fashion, try something new and put something on that makes you feel good about yourself.

I would like to thanks Ronit Genik for the interview

Heavy on Fashion talks to Hortencia Caires Casazola (creator of Stylefeen.com)

Hello all my fashion divas and gurus! I am so glad to present my first interview of the new year with the creator of Stylefeen,com, Hortencia Caires Casazola. Ms. Hortenccia is a photographer and a fashion designer with her finger on the pulse of the latest in fashion. From killer shades to amazing crop top, this a must know for your wardrobe. Here is Heavy on Fashion talks to Hortencia Caires Casazola (creator of Stylefeen.com)!





Heavy on Fashion: How did Stylefeen.com come to be?

Hortencia Caires Casazola (creator of Stylefeen.com): Style Feen launched April 2013. I'm a photographer first hand, photography will always be my first love. I've always wanted to be an in-house photographer for a clothing company. That's when I decided, why be an employee, when I can be the BOSS. Style Feen like anything started out as an idea and my partner at the time and I wanted to create a place where people can come and obsess! I launched it in April using all the resources I had and created STYLE FEEN, an online clothing made for all your Style Feening needs!


Heavy on Fashion: If Stylefeen.com had the chance to dress *anyone* who would it be?

Hortencia Caires Casazola:  Not because I'm obsessed with her or anything (lies), but hands down without a doubt Miley Cyrus! Miley embodies our STYLE FEEN girl. She is who she is and doesn't need anyone else's approval and that's the girl we cater to.



Heavy on Fashion: Describe the Stylefeen Girl? What celebrity really embodies stylefeen?

Hortencia Caires Casazola:  I'm going to have to stick with Miley Cyrus, but Cara Delevingne is right up there with her. Both girls are STYLE FEEN'S! Both just love fashion and are absolutely stunning. Style Feen caters to the girl who just doesn't care about what others think of them, they wear what they want!


Heavy on Fashion: Who are some of your favorite designer?

 Hortencia Caires Casazola: My faves are Jeremy Scott, E Marie and Jeffrey Campbell.
 

Heavy on Fashion: What are some of your favorite clothing stores/catalogs/websites?

Hortencia Caires Casazola:  I have so many! Karmaloop, ebay (always great finds there), Buffalo Exchange, Steve Madden, 2020 ave and many more.



Heavy on Fashion: Where do you get your inspiration?

Hortencia Caires Casazola:  I get inspiration mostly from others around me, people I know who are just like me trying their hardest to achieve their goal inspire me. I also follow a lot of bloggers for my fashion inspiration love seeing their personal style and fresh new places to shop always pop up.


Heavy on Fashion: What do you hope to have achieved in the industry, in 10 years?

Hortencia Caires Casazola:  I hope to have Style Feen be a recognized brand, establish a store front in the future where I reside and have Style Feen be worn by the rich and famous.
 

Heavy on Fashion: Finally, what does fashion mean to you?

Hortencia Caires Casazola: Fashion to me is what you make it. Some people might not grasp or understand what you wear, but it doesn't matter. People follow trends or make up new trends. In the world of today where everything needs to be visual, you like to tell others what you're about without speaking. Fashion to me is what you want it to be. Fashion has so many meanings, but to me, fashion is an art form of expression.


 I would like to thank Hortencia for the inteview!
