Unique Talents and Bold Details Coming Soon to Tampa Bay

In Designers, Events, Fashion on September 12, 2012 at 1:37 am

For those  who may be feeling a bit fashion starved, please try to hang on for a couple more weeks.  Tampa Bay Fashion Week is about to unleash more fashion than your little eyes can handle.

Think for a moment what amazing possibilities could arise when the owners of a posh salon transform their beauty talents into fashion.  Ashton Anderson will be unveiling for the first time their great artistic vision in fabric form.  As I wait anxiously, I have a delightful feeling that the runways  of Tampa Bay will never be the same.

What else can you expect to see at Fashion Week?  The House of Donshey will present unique pieces created from designer Dolly Donshey’s passion for creating beauty out of “ugliness”.

“I don’t know why I design the way I do. I’ve just always preferred the darker side to life. I love the beauty in something ugly that can be transformed into something visually pleasing. With every collection I create I just pull inspiration from my life at that moment…”

Known for her award winning conceptual films and theatrical shows, Dolly’s design aesthetic has been described as “Edgy Elegance”.  Any collection that incorporates leather, fur, feathers, lace, spikes, studs and crystals is surely one you will want to keep an eye on.

These are just two of the fabulous designers you can look forward to seeing at Tampa Bay Fashion Week.  Are you excited yet?

The Perfect Shoe

In Designers, Fashion on July 14, 2010 at 5:25 am

Marilyn once made it quite clear that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”  With that said, I think it is safe to say that a perfect heel is not far behind.  If your average stiletto is a friend, consider a Louboutin heel your guardian angel.  Often seen on the perfectly pedicured feet of popular starlets, Christian Louboutin heels are often seen in sky-high versions of satin and in the fanciest form, embellished with dazzling crystals.

From the most recent collection, a stiletto bootie features a sheer upper with flame-like crystal detail.  Unlike many shoe designers, Louboutin does not stop dazzling when the heel is reached.  Fabulously colored crystals envelope the heel, which also reveals the famous red color on the inside.  Such intense sparkle may be meant for evening, but I would suggest showing this incredible piece off for any daily activity.

From the same collection, a stiletto sandal features shocking pink and metallic gold with similar crystals decorating the heel.  Perfect for that hot new night spot, this shoe will certainly be the center of attention.

If sexy heights and exquisite details strike your fancy, there is absolutely no better choice than Christian Louboutin.  Never ignore your diamonds, but make sure your other friend gets an invite, as well.
