Short dresses & skirts are so 2014. Welcome to the era of class.
Yes, girls need to feel sexy in order to be self-confident, but untilparis does not believe in showing skin to gain confidence or to gain attention. The new sexy is the maxi slit. Chic meets class with maxi slit dresses. I mean, when does the crowd think a celebrity looks hot? When she's in a short tight dress or a floor-length gown with just enough of a slit to do the job. You tell me.
Btw, guess where I got this dress?
When Manhattan greets us with chilly mornings, I get way too excited and pull out leather pants and paisley jackets. And yes, The Vogue cover is unfortunately a mock up done by the amazing Until Paris photographer, Saba Karim. I have never gotten so many compliments on a jacket before and you will be shocked which designer made it.
Two weeks into my internship and I have already experienced more than I could have ever imagined. The Fashion industry is a cut throat world and a constant revolving door, but the reward is much more than a salary. My job entails thousands of different adventures every single day. My morning starts with trekking in 100% humidity from 5th avenue to the Garment & Fashion District. I am lucky enough to be working with fashion industry legends from incredible designers to the top sales directors in the business. Follow my journey through the fashion industry this summer.
New York City was just voted the Global Fashion Capital, and I am honored to have received a three month internship in the Marketing and Public Relations department at Haute Hippie corporate offices this summer!
The photo above was taken at an exclusive Haute Hippie photoshoot at Copley Place, Trinity Church in the City of Boston with celebrity photographer Saba Karim. These outfits were hand picked and styled by me, for the FAB Fashion Show. More photos from the shoot below.
The urban lane ways of Melbourne, calls for an urban outfit with my classic flare of course. Details on the outfit here.

Visiting Australia was a trip of a lifetime. It is definitely more than just Kangaroos and Koalas, as most Americans know it as. Melbourne's artistic culture made me fall in love with the city. Melbourne, Victoria is the fashion capital of Australia. The Victorian architecture combined with the urban buildings caught my eye. The city of immense character is now my favorite destination. A walk through Melbourne leads you to find the treasures of the beautiful lanes and arcades that add to the charm of the city. I was lucky enough to have the walking tour with five passionate Melbourne locals.
I like to call it, minimalist Melbourne. The style in Melbourne encompassed simplicity and elegance. I was lucky enough to go in my favorite season, fall. The fall/winter styles impressed me because men and women of all ages wore minimal pieces but still exemplified their own style with glam. Minimalism is the opposite of expressivsim, hence the clothing is typically colder and excludes emotion. Expressive work deals with prints and flowy dresses. But the typical Melbourne girl in my eyes had, a leather bomber jacket with boyfriend jeans or a trench coat. I loved it and was inspired by all the different stores and styles.
FAB's La Vie En Rose Life in Pink Spring 2015 Fashion show was honored to partnered with US's best-funded and leading breast cancer foundation, Susan G Komen. Komen advocates for breast self-awareness as a primary method for fighting breast cancer.
La Vie En Rose featured 12 Boston University student designers and featured lines from Haute Hippie and Ministry of Supply. Our fashion show also featured gift bags for each attendee with products, from companies such as Neiman Marcus, Uber, Dosa Factory, Dapper Time, Kind Bars, Kate Spade, BCBG and raffles prizses containing Ministry of Supply shirts, Michael Kors bags, Ray Bans and more!
I was honored to have my third official collection close the show! My mom and I designed this beautiful line. We are launching a line within this year so stay tuned. I was inspired by my own personal Coco Chanel, my mother, she embodies the mod style of the 60's and I incorporated her style with the theme of pink and my obsession with sheer and capes. Mod style started with 60's subculture starting in Great Britain and made its way to California in the 70's. The styles include, a-line styles, capes, high neck-lines, and pearls. I combined this style with my own edgy tule and skin-tight sheer ensembles.

Being on the board of FAB, I was involved not only in the designing process, but also the production, from sponsors to marketing, I completely immersed myself into La Vie En Rose. And I am more than proud of my fellow board members and I for putting together a phenomenal show.
Wearing "myself" is the most empowering feeling in the world. All smiles for the Life in Pink Fashion Show!
