Pretty Little Violet

I spent the weekend finishing up orders in the shop - so I'm enjoying this moment I have to write in my blog, although I know I have a lot of work to do on my new collection. Last week we finished drafting patterns and cutting all the designs so naturally the final step is to get this collection together and up in the shop. 

I've been planning this new line for about a year now - it's a special line I'm designing specifically by request from none other then my dedicated clients, friends, and fans! Tune into my blog for the release of the new line coming soon :)

Backstage Beauty: Low Ponytails & Wispy Hair Styling - Alyssa Nicole FW14 Presentation

For Fall 2014 my focus on hair styling was minimal and romantic to compliment the soft natural luminous skin. I wanted the models hair to be polished yet still feminine, so we went with a middle part and teased low ponytail. A navy velvet headband accented the hair style to complement the palette of moody blues throughout the collection. 
 
The San Francisco wind and fog made it difficult to keep our models hairstyles polished to perfection - but thanks to "Karl the Fog" - soft wispy hair styling was just touch we needed to the "Still Cold" theme of Alyssa Nicole's Fall 2014 Collection Presentation.

Inspiration: Fabric - Alyssa Nicole Fall 2014 Collection

This season my vision for Fall 2014 was manifested and carefully crafted in soft luxurious wool, shimmering jacquards, jersey ponte, and satin faced organza accented by plush blue velvet trim. My inspiration for the "Still Cold" collection was influenced by starlight in shades of midnight blue in which metallic jacquards illustrate the concept of starlight in the line. The need for warmth in my "Still Cold" collection is established in the soft felted wool and luxurious stretch ponte.
