    After Lili Blanc’s show at Paris Fashion Week, the third day of DFW kicked off with UAE-based Ready to Wear Lili Blanc's “Flamme Femme” collection La Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode – supported designer, Weinsanto, now a DFW member part of the designers' committee, revealed his collection Dyson’s exclusive masterclasses continue at Dubai Fashion Week More environmentally responsible fashion with Lateforwork and Pipatchara LILI BLANC Lili Blanc unveiled her "Flamme Femme" collection at DFW after showcasing during Paris Fashion Week as part of the Arab Fashion Council's partnership with the Federation de La Haute Couture et de la Mode. Glam crystals sparkled over sharply tailored suits, capes, and evening dresses, along with a wide range of ready-to-wear closets ranging from skirts, flared and fitted trousers, and jumpsuits to make this an all-around collection. The use of refreshing color tones of gold, burgundy, and purple, along with the usual white, black, green, and denim, deviated from Lili Blanc’s typical palette. PIPATCHARA PIPATCHARA's new collection, "Sensation Spectrum," delivered a unique combination of sustainability and luxury. The collection was inspired by the sensations of nature experienced during vacations, focusing on light and sound, giving us 30 looks of versatile designs suitable for any lifestyle. The use of Infinitude, an unconditional material, enabled infinite possibilities in terms of colorway and design with a color palette of grey, navy, silver, black, olive green, light purple, white, and light pink. The Infinitude jewelry demonstrated the potential of sustainable materials in the fashion industry, while the contemporary Macrame technique elevated the texture and craftsmanship of the outfits. WEINSANTO After showcasing for five seasons in Dubai as part of the collaboration between the Arab Fashion Council and the Federation de La Haute Couture et de la Mode, the French designer Victor Weinsanto has become one of the DFW members part of the designers' committee. His collection exhibited the surrealism of his proportions in every design. Mega cape, massive halo hat, deconstructed trench coats, bugle beads, chains, plastic shards, and metal blotches communicated a sense of fantasy in all the pieces created. The designer also gave us aged denim parkas, blotchy abstract print stretch cocktails, and sassy corsets made of velour. LATEFORWORK The brand’s collection that stems from the reality of our daily lives gave us designs of subculture references, all with desk job roots. We witnessed the formal wear reimagined with disproportional cuts and intrusion of color pop with a thick, velvety fabric that takes the attire out of the office. Oversized tailoring, textures, and movements, along with various silhouettes, felt alive on the runway and enabled Lateforwork women to walk freely in the dead stock fabrics to promote sustainability. The designer gave us revisited striped shirts, shoulder-padded jackets, and articles with a flowy feel. Searching for Day 1 and Day 2 of #DubaiFashionWeek? You can find them here:

  • Mexican Days

    In February 2023, I had an opportunity to spend three magnificent weeks in Mexico visiting the capital city (where I attended ZONAMACO, the biggest Latin American art fair) as well as 3 other destinations: Puebla, Cholula, and Mérida. There are several reasons why Mexico should be on your bucket list for 2023 and beyond. It's one of those eclectic travel destinations that offer a unique blend of tradition and innovation and an unlimited list of activities for every budget and taste. No matter is you are looking for an adventure trip with a group of friends, a romantic getaway with your partner, fun family holidays with kids, or a peaceful solo trip, you will be spoilt for choice. From street tacos to fine dining, inexpensive local markets to upscale shopping experiences, simple hostels to luxury boutique hotels, pre-Hispanic sites to modern architecture, nature and beach destinations to city life – Mexico offers it all. CDMX - The City of the Future Most people don't think about technology when they think about Mexico. Wrong! Let me show you a couple of recent examples how Mexico City is moving toward the future and making everyday life not only easier but also more exciting. Connectivity In 2021, Mexico City won Guinness record for internet connectivity beating out metropolises such as Seoul and Tokyo. With a system of more than 28,000 free WiFi hotspots, it is still one of the most connected cities on Earth. “Technology does not make sense if it isn’t for the benefit of the inhabitants, especially the most marginalized of our city,” said Claudia Sheinbaum, mayor of Mexico City. The innovative Internet for All program benefits international travellers as well and is a welcome break from overpriced roaming charges or similar interruptions to connectivity. The free WiFI hotspots are located all over Mexico City and there is no limit to how long you can be connected. What's really interesting is the fact that the system was created using existing unused bandwidth on security cameras and helps to keep the city residents and visitors safe. You can read more about the integration with Mi Calle and Sendero Seguro programs here. Public Transportation Stylish blue trolleybuses can now be found in Mexico's capital city as part of an ongoing modernisation of its transport network. These new vehicles feature a double-source driveline technology (provided by Chinese manufacturer Yutong), which mean that they can run on overhead lines or on battery power. They are an affordable and eco-friendly way to travel around the city. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Highly recommended! You can view and download the Trolleybus Lines Map that can be easily saved on your phone and used offline while travelling, here. Culture The first piece of public art driven by artificial intelligence (AI) in Latin America can be found in the elegant Neuchâtel Cuadrante Polanco residential complex located in Nuevo Polanco. The Eye of Mexico reflects the vibrant energy of the city and is the first data and artificial intelligence sculpture in Mexico. A true benchmark for innovation, mobility and urban planning, it has been created based on (past and present) demographic, urban and mobility data for the Mexican capital. This hypnotising work of public art is a collaboration with renowned international new media studio, Ouchhh, which "has a dream about secret codes of cosmic multidimensional hybrid universes made by AI without physical architectural boundaries". Representing the dynamism of Neuchâtel Cuadrante Polanco, where you can also enjoy a selection of shops focused on wellness and gastronomy, "The Eye of Mexico" project not only enhances the quality of people’s lives and makes everyday life extraordinary, but also directs us toward the future of mobility. How exciting! "Simply put, Mexico City is where things are happening in the Latin American world. Every major financial institution is in Mexico City. The best universities are in Mexico City. World renowned artists, innovators, and entrepreneurs call Mexico City home and it shows no signs of slowing down." - Source: CodersLink Below you can find a small selection of pictures showing my daily life in Mexico City, featuring some of my favourite places in Roma Norte and Polanco. Mexico City (Photos by Eva Fydrych | Fashion Studio Magazine) Slow Down Both Puebla and Cholula offer a refreshing break from the busy city life and they are well connected with the Mexican capital. Several bus companies operate between Mexico City and Puebla (I recommend ADO) and the journey time is a little over 2 hours. During my stay in Puebla, I discovered two chic hotels that I would highly recommend: one located in the historic centre (Hotel Royalty Puebla) and one in La Paz neighbourhood (Arkana Hotel by Rotamundos). Royalty Puebla is a luxury boutique hotel situated in a stunning colonial building right in the heart of Puebla's Zócalo which remains the cultural, political and religious centre of the city. You can find many notable buildings around, including City Hall, Casa de los Muñecos, and the Baroque style Cathedral. The Historic Centre of Puebla features some of the best-preserved colonial architecture in Mexico and is among the oldest on the continent. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. Nearby Cholula, one of Pueblos Mágicos, is indeed a place where you can spend unforgettable moments, escape the routine, and invite some magic to your everyday life. If you decide to stay in San Andrés Cholula, don't miss Majikal B&B (we will be writing more about this unique destination soon). Recommended place to stay in San Pedro Cholula: Quinta Alhóndiga Galindo, a historic mansion from the end of 18th century which is now a family-run boutique hotel showcasing the beauty of Mexican culture and archeology. Magical Cholula moments (Photos by Eva Fydrych | Fashion Studio Magazine) Tropical Escape If you are looking for a delightful mix of provincial and cosmopolitan atmosphere, Mérida, the capital of Yucatán Peninsula, is the place to be. Take a flight from Mexico City and be there in less than 2 hours (you can fly with local airlines such as Volaris, Viva Aerobus or Aeroméxico). Recommended place to stay: Majikal B&B, one of the most stylish and unique rental properties in Mérida, offering everything you may need during your Mexican vacation (pool, fully-equipped kitchen with a coffee maker, patio featuring exotic plants, beautifully restored old furniture, colourful decor elements, and local art). More about these exciting destinations coming soon. Stay tuned! The true essence of Mexico lies exactly here – somewhere in the middle between tradition and modernity, far away from all-inclusive resorts of Cancún. I invite you to create your own unique experience and find a little piece of paradise next time you visit this fascinating country.

  • Effective Methods to Help You Build a Strong Brand Identity

    In order to effectively express the company's values, mission, and unique selling proposition to the target audience, branding is a crucial component of every organization. A distinctive brand identity distinguishes a company from its rivals and makes it easier for customers to recall and identify the brand with particular attributes. Building a great brand identity is a continuous process that needs dedication, time, and work. However, because it serves as the cornerstone of a successful and long-lasting company, investing in this process is worthwhile, and here are a few ideas that could help you build the strongest brand identity in the world. Know your target audience The first and most important stage in creating a strong brand identity is identifying your target audience. Knowing who your clients are, what their requirements and wants are, and how they view your brand will help you target them more successfully. By gathering this data through market research, customer surveys, and other techniques, you can build a brand that appeals to your target market and positions your company as a service that meets their needs. To develop a brand image that will appeal to your target audience, it is critical to acquire as much information as you can about them. The tone of your marketing materials, the kind of content you produce, and the manner in which you interact with clients should all be shaped by this information. Define your brand values Your brand values define what your firm stands for and what makes it unique, and they serve as the cornerstone of your brand identity. These values ought to be genuine, reflect the essence of your company, and be in line with the requirements and preferences of your intended market. Once your brand values have been established, it is critical to apply them to all parts of your branding, including your marketing collateral, website, and client interactions. Your branding activities will be more successful and your brand image will be consistent and cohesive if you have defined brand values to guide them. Everything you do should be consistent with your beliefs, including the language you use in your marketing materials and how you deal with clients. Develop a unique visual identity Working with a graphic designer or branding firm will help you develop a visual identity that accurately represents your business and is professional and indicative of the caliber of your goods and services. Building a great brand identity requires having a distinctive and enduring visual identity. From your website to your business cards to your social media profiles, your visual identity should be the same everywhere. However, you need to pay close attention to your website because this will probably be the most common way for people to find and recognize your brand. Therefore, designing a great website is a must, and you can also make it more unique by connecting your website to your personal image as well. Creating a respectable personal website is crucial for your online presence and your entire brand identity as well, so stop hesitating and start turning this idea into reality today! Consistency is key In order to have a strong brand identity, consistency is essential. From your website to your business cards to your social media profiles, your branding should be consistent throughout all of these touchpoints. This consistency expresses your dedication to your company's ideals and image while also making it easier for people to recognize and recall your brand. A comprehensive brand guideline must be in place that specifies the particular components of your brand identity, such as your color scheme, typography, and messaging, in order to maintain consistency in your branding activities. All team members should be made aware of this guideline, and all new branding initiatives should be compared to it to make sure they are consistent with your brand identity. Continuously monitor and evaluate your brand identity It takes time and constant monitoring and evaluation to develop a strong brand identity. Your brand identity should evolve to reflect changes in your target market and competitive environment. Your brand identity will remain relevant and appeal to your target audience if you regularly assess it and make the required modifications. You can also find areas for improvement by routinely monitoring and assessing your brand identity. This can entail modernizing your brand's visual identity, altering your messaging, or altering how you interact with your audience. Any firm must invest time, energy, and devotion into developing a strong brand identity. Building trust and credibility with your clients through a strong brand identity may help you stand out from the competition, as well as lay the groundwork for an enduring and prosperous company. Start today and take the essential actions to develop a powerful brand identity for your company since boosting your brand identity means investing in your future.

    When it comes to fashion, there is nothing more sophisticated than French haute couture - an ultimate symbol of luxury made with extreme attention to detail. Alexis Mabille, an official member of The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, is one of the most interesting designers who is very skilful at mixing various influences together and creating one-of-the-kind contemporary looks. Known for his passion for style and beauty, Alexis offers a refreshing take on traditional elements and a concept of femininity. The final effect is mesmerising - chic, precisely cut designs with a sporty-chic attitude and cosmopolitan allure. Let's have a closer look at the Spring/Summer 2023 collection presented at the Haute Couture Week on January 24, 2023 in Paris. Colour-addict As gold continues to be one of the most sought-after colours of 2023, Alexis Mabille collection features unique colour combinations and plays with contrasting textures to create a perfect balance between sophistication and natural casual attitude. Bold silhouettes and eye-catching shapes combine soft femininity with a strong and powerful image. Alexis Mabille woman is not only elegant and glamorous but also confident and proud of who she is - those personality traits we are all aiming for. Colourful makeup (done by Lloyd Simmonds) and bold floral accessories add a playful, tropical touch. With both sensual reds and various shades of pinks, the Spring/Summer 2023 collection offers a delightful mix of fashion looks suitable for many red carpets events and high-profile parties. The "Colour-addict" collection is a beautiful reminder that life is about balance and that adding a bit of colour to your wardrobe may have a powerful, long-lasting effect. Congratulations on a fantastic show in Paris! We can't wait to see what's coming next.

We talked about his design process, favourite shopping spots in Paris, using new technologies in fashion, and his unique concept of the "cool luxury".
