Image underwear as outerwear 01

If girls and women from nineteenth and twentieth century could catch a glimpse of modern women and today’s fashion trends, they would have been shocked. With fashion designers becoming more bold and innovative every season, it was a matter of time when they would decide that ‘keeping things hidden’ (and by ‘things’ we mean underwear) was too boring a trend and that it lacked a fresh perspective. As a result, women all over the world are wearing their underwear as a statement piece of clothing and are not ashamed of showing it off.

DOVF Interview with Aziza Morgan – One Woman, Many Talents

What I love about social media is the networking factor that it allows you to have at the touch of a finger. There are so many cool people that you can meet on social media that you never would cross paths with organically in regular life. This happened to me recently while scrolling through my “likes” on Instagram. A person with the handle @artlovescompany had liked one of my pics, I was intrigued by the name so I checked out their profile page. What I found was this amazingly talented and beautiful individual. Read on to find out more about the woman behind the profile: Aziza Morgan.
Aziza 2There were images of everything from her personal style, to hair tips, writing samples, to music, to photography and her adorable newborn! I then went through and liked pretty much all of her pics, lol. I had to know more about her and how she juggled all these talents as well as being a new mom. As usual, whenever I find/meet new people that are unique and creative I love to share them with you. So, I setup a time to chat with her and found out there’s even ore to her than what is seen in the visual collage I first was introduced to on Instagram.

Rocky Mountain Style – DENV3R.CO, Colorado Inspired Apparel

 

2016-03-12 06.58.02
Quick fact about me… I am originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado. I am also currently in the process of moving across the country from New Jersey to California, with a pit stop where? You guessed it Colorado. I never used to like to represent Colorado that much because all people would seem to think of was skiing and hiking and since I do neither I always felt like I shouldn’t represent what I don’t feel like I belong to.
Other than the recent legalization of weed, my home state had also always been known for the beauty in the natural surroundings, fresh (but thin) air, Vail/Aspen/Breckenridge and the most majestic mountains of all Pikes Peak. When visiting here you could find your typical souvenir apparel that represented Colorado as a nice place to visit, but most recently a new fashion apparel line is seeking to make a statement that Colorado is also a cool place to be from! It’s also cool that two things that are inherent in me (being from Colorado and loving fashion), are now tied together in one smart brand – DENV3R.CO Continue Reading

Back in June of last year, I had attended The Set NYC – Fashion Night Out! event for the first time and really enjoyed capturing the “style from the aisles” as noted in this blog post. This past September I had the pleasure of attending again. This was one of the events that I was looking forward to the most, as it encompassed fashion, food, drinks and shopping. The Set NYC charity and fashion event also tends to showcase up and coming designers as well as other fashion creatives. This time I focused more on getting to know the designers that were showcasing there work on the outskirts of the runway. The first highlighted designer that caught my eye had models standing on a platform showcasing very exquisite and unique jewelry pieces, which truly looked like works of art!
As I approached the models to get a better look and to take a few pictures, I noticed that the designer seemed to be standing close by. I introduced myself and told her how amazing her collection of work was, as we chatted she seemed so humble and excited to be showing off her work. I had to stay in contact with her as I knew she would be up to great things and I wanted a front row seat to her journey. As usual with all my interviews, I thought it would be great to share with you the person behind this amazing work. Read on and get to know how broken jewelry made her who she is today, why Taylor Swift is her style crush and where in the world you will be able to shop Aisa Marie Corrales Designs soon!
