FASHION: Look of the Day #2

IMG-20150504-WA0002

Today my color was fuchsia! Combine it and don’t be afraid to use it. Anything if you’re not used to the tone try to turn it down with neutral colors. But my advice is experiment and create maybe without knowing it you make a new trend .

Today I chose shades between pink and red.

I wanted my bag to be the essential piece of the look. It is a medium-sized stylish envelope style bag.

My Jean skirt reaches to the knee and has a high cut almost below the bust area. This type of garment stretches the persons body and gives the impression of someone taller.

The shirt matches the colors of the bag and the stripes add texture and uniformity to the look.

The necklace accessory is something of preference. You can also combine simple but elegant earrings to lower the pitch, maybe some pearls.

Tuve la oportunidad de entrevistar a la diseñadora de joyas de la marca GN Accesorios, que esta haciendo furor en las redes sociales de Venezuela con sus diseños coloridos y originales.  

¿Qué opinas sobre el rápido crecimiento del diseño independiente en Venezuela?

Me parece que es muy positivo que se esté desarrollando rápidamente esta actividad, de la cual formo parte, ya que a través de nuestro talento demostramos que Venezuela no es solo un país lleno de riquezas y fortalezas naturales. Sino que también somos una población receptiva de nuevas ideas, que fusionamos en diseños únicos y modernos como alternativa a otra actividad económica, los cuales son de gran demanda para la población y muchos países más.

Fashion: Jewelry Design Flores Gemelas.

IMG-20150303-WA0007

I had the opportunity to interview Jawar Angi Padilla Alvarez, Venezuelan designer of her own brand of accessories Flores Gemelas. Bright colors, stones, ribbons, crystals and originality are what makes it stand. She is located in Venezuela where she currently lives, but ships internationally to Bogota, Miami, Panama and Tenerife.

What do you think about the rapid growth of independent design in Venezuela?

It really is amazing, the growth of all designers today in our country, my motto is: who will not do anything today, it is because you do not want. That result is a lot of competition in everything, but also think there is something for everyone.

How many designers make Flores Gemelas and how did you start the company?

Flores Gemelas is conformed by myself only, the company started in 2009 with an idea that emerged from my mother, my twin sister and me (that’s why it’s named Flower Twins). We started to develop flexible earrings shaped like flowers, and when that went out of fashion, I continued preparing myself in other areas of accessories and everything related to jewelry. Then two years ago I started with the Soutache technique. I love being creating, designing and doing different things!

Which materials do you use? How is the work divided?

The essential materials are called Soutache thread (which is practically one of the main materials), the Strass, stones, crystals, pearls, glues, textiles and more.

Normally, I first draw up all the pieces I need to do daily for orders, and let them dry for a while, then cover each of the pieces.

How long do you take making a piece? Does it depend on the material or size?

It all depends on the size of the piece, for example earrings from the smallest to the largest, I can take 10 min to 20 min or 30 min per pair of earrings. Instead, with necklaces slow roughly 45 min.

I imagine being so popular you have regular customers in the country. Where in Caracas can we find your pieces?

Like I said, there are people following me since I started Flores Gemelas with the other things that I elaborated. But thank God there is now something called Social Medias, which help a lot for people to know my work.

Currently in Caracas, Venezuela, you can find my pieces in Magnolia store (in the CC Terras Square) in Stores Lulu Collection (In the CC Plaza Las Americas, CC Concresa, and CC Santa fe) in the Shops Bebe Limited by Nair Salazar (in Santa Fe CC and the CC Gallery Orange) and In The Shop Ces’t La Vie (in the CC Concresa).

And if you are looking for something specific, you can contact me directly.

Have you thought about having customers abroad?

In fact I have several allied people selling my accessories worldwide. We have allies in Bogota, Miami, Panama and Tenerife.

How to advertise your company? Do you use social networking to the purchase and sale of parts?

As I said before, todays social networks help much to publicize what you do internationally.

What is the next step for the growth of Flores Gemelas?

Well, I have many projects on my agenda, we have gradually grown and better our work, and as soon as my next plan is stablished I will gladly inform all our supporters and followers.
