TOP 5 Best Designers for Spring/Summer 2015

Roberto Cavalli: Escape into the Wind

Roberto Cavalli’s Spring/ Summer 2015 collection was created in the true spirit of summer. The mixture of print and color creates free flowing pieces that suggest the feeling of escape. Animal prints used were contrasted by bold vibrant colors. With these looks, one can get on a flight to the Bahamas for vacation or just head to the beach with Bold colors, animal prints, stripes were explored through abstract shapes. The choices of when to show skin further supports freedom creating different ways to enjoy the hot summer weather/ breeze through long flowy gowns and other styles.

DOLCE & GABBANA’s tribute to Sicily, Italy

It was an ode to Sicily, Italy between 1516 and 1713.  Implementing a playful approach to synchronizing black, red, gold, and floral prints to create high waist shorts, embroided jackets, and bull fighting inspired capes. This mixture creates dark femininity with a hint of royalty. The use of lace adds a hint of sensuality that is perfectly married to a strong dark accent creating  a color pallet that is quit satisfying. Over all, the pieces were sophisticated and intriguiing and an amazing tribute to  Sicily.

For these looks, you can expect to see the use of Pewter, metallic, shades of blue, white, and stripes to create blazers, shorts, and pleated high waist pants. Very practical looks that can be worn in the office or in a relaxed setting.  The change of looks can occur with a new pair of shoes. Although navy blue is a dark Color for the summer it’s mixture with plaid, stripes and white causes it to have breath. Royal blue and grey.

Moshcino, entices the imagination, by bringing to life, Barbie. What would she look like in live form? Every lady in the house was brought to their youths through his expression of bright pinks, blues, polka dots, and a lot of attitude. Moshino, explores different ways he could glorify the mother of all things girly and pink. Not for the average woman, but for the bold socialite who wants to make a splash and leave and impression.

The contrast in shapes exudes power, strong sensuality, and influence. The V-necks and Long flowy luxurious pants suggest effortless sensuality. His pieces can be worn right off the runway to a boardroom, date night or any event.  He had very practical pieces that could bring out the goddess in any woman. He was successful in bringing Ready-to-wear pieces to the masses; creating sheik futuristic pieces with a sensual twist, exploring sensuality from different angles. His exploration of colors within structure and boundaries lines was refreshing and inspiring. His pieces are my favorites for the 2015 spring /summer look.

You Are a Brand

page contents


From now until the day you leave this earth you will create either a cyber or a paper trail that will tell the story of your life. What you wear, how you act, and what you do all contribute to the image you create of yourself.

What you wear, how you act, and what you do all contribute to the image you create of yourself. From twerking on stage, to anacondas and nude pictures, are celebrities tarnishing the unspoken “Leave something to the imagination” image of women?

You are a brand.A brand is created by the image you project to the world. With the level of technology these days, it’s very easy to find out both private and public information about almost anyone.

Prime example of this happened earlier this week, when a number of celebrity nude photos surfaced on the Internet. Regardless if the photos were a branding strategy or completely accidental, influencers like Meagan Good, Rihanna, and Kim Kardashian, had their brands exposed to the world.

Believe it or not, people are going to develop an opinion about your character based on the type of image you project. Nude photos or any kind of controversial activity viewed by society could have a negative effect on your image and could ultimately limit future endeavors.

As people are scrolling down your Instagram or looking over your resume, it is likely that they are forming an opinion about your character based on what you’ve presented to the world. In Beyonce’s hit song “Flawless”, she sampled the voice of a woman named Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Adichie is a successful Nigerian writer.For some spectators, Adichie’s work was completely unknown until the song “Flawless” premiered and even then many people still don’t recognize her. However, when Miley Cyrus’ began “Twerking” on the MTV Video Music Awards in 2013 it became a national trending topic almost instantly.

Why is that?Women like Sheryl Sandberg, Indra Nooyi, and Oprah Winfrey have all worked hard to protect their image and the results catapulted them into iconic success.

These same successful women didn’t share their bodies with the world, nor did they perform numerous publicity stunts like Nicki Minaj “Anaconda” music video to remain relevant in the public eye.

They achieved greatness based on their intellectual contributions and by maintaining a tasteful image. So, How are you currently branding yourself?

My take on pigment (skin color) race

Beauty in Many Shades I identify with white 
I identify with brown
I identify with red
I identify with black
I identify with yellow

If we all were birth from the same place, our bloodlines have mixed
I love Marilyn Monroe just as much as I love Warren Buffet & Steve Jobs
I love Beyonce’ just as much as I love Shakira & Incubus

I think Oprah is just as amazing as Marissa Mayer
They are all heroes and the greatest of our time
I do not believe that one would have gotten as far without the help, support, or contribution from others

I think the land of Egypt is the best representation of history, therefore I believe that the Egyptians people are beautiful.
I love the Islamic race because they respect and maintain history
I love Christianity because they accept adaptation and change
I love Buddhism because it intrigues me and carries the unknown teachings
I love Hinduism because it secures and respects the faith of animals

I delight in collaboration of cultures because it teaches you to listen and learn
I celebrate the image of perfection the parliament represents, it teaches the value of nepotism
I celebrate the art and creativity of the people of Dubai
I envy the beauty of geisha girls and their ability to remain poise and emblematic

So you see no race is different to me. Just like the feline, we are all the same specie we just come in variation of styles.

Does my writing reflect the color I am, the pigment of my skin?
If not, then it should not matter
It should not separate us
It should allow us to celebrate our differences
And oneness in the eyes of God

I identify with white
I identify with brown
I identify with red
I identify with black
I identify with yellow
