Heavy on Fashion: A Look at ImaniLia Designs

Hello all my Heavy on Fashion confidantes. Today I am happy to present a great new designer line called ImaniLia Designs. Imani Whyte is the fashionable and creative mind behind ImaniLia Designs. Born and raised in Harlem, NY Imani began designing and making clothes at the tender age of 10. After graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in Fashion Design, Imani developed ImaniLa Designs. Today Imani created a great clothing line and branched into other areas in fashion including Couture, Evening Wear, Handbags, and Hair Accessories. 


Today I am going to show one of my favorite collections from ImaniLa Designs called Royal Jungle. The use of African prints and other tribal patterns with the combination of bright colors makes this collection is a summer must.  I fell in fashion love with this 2010 collection. 

Here is a glimpse Royal Jungle by ImaniLa Designs.

  1. Amazing collection! So different yet wearable. I find that a lot of new designers either don't push the envelope enough, or go wayyyy to out there. This is perfect.

Heavy on Fashion at Shecky's Girl Nights out in NYC - Fall 2011

Hey guys! As you all know, I had a chance to cover Shecky's Girls Night Out in New York City.  I am a fan of Shecky's  event but this time around I found some great fashion, a celebrity sighting, and of course some great cocktails. Here is Heavy on Fashion at Shecky's in NYC!  

Vh1's Tough Love Miami @ Shecky's
Host and matchmaker Steve Ward along with fellow match maker and founder of Master Matchmaker Joann Ward (also Steve's Mom!) was at Shecky's giving out some great dating advice to all the ladies in New York! 




Don't you just love this dress. Fabulous! 

Here is a look at the crowd for Steve and Joann. Many ladies had some awesome question about relationships and dating. I have to say that Steve and Joann gave some grand advice. 

Sidenote: I am really loving Joann's style! 

When Steve took off his jacket, I knew he was  about to get down to business! He did and gave out some much needed Tough Love! Check out their site at http://www.mastermatchm…

Heavy on Fashion Goes to The Alex Soldier Showroom

Hey everyone! I had a great opportunity to visit the The Alex Soldier Showroom in New York City. I became familiar with Alex Soldier at a private showcase in New York City. When I received a email from Maria Soldier, Executive Director of the Alex Soldier Showroom, to come and check out the Alex Soldier collection in New York City. I was honored.

Alex Soldier has a vast collection of jewelry and artwork that is exceptional in craftsmanship and quality. From unique luxury jewelry with exotic diamonds and precious stone designed for the rich and famous to awards for Royalty. Alex is a creator and a example of true artistry in the world of luxury.

Here is one of my favorite piece from Alex's collection. This starfish ring is full of precious stones including diamonds. The best thing some of Alex Soldiers' pieces is that are interchangeable. Each piece has a custom key for each interchangeable piece.  They can be a ring or a pin. I believe the company is also working on making these…
