'Tomorrow is always fresh, with no mistakes in it.'

~Lucy Maud Montgomery

This past week was filled with oohs and aahs , as I got to direct a photo shoot of our latest Summer Styles. There’s something I find immensely rewarding of seeing my designs brought to life. Getting to watch the expression of our model Khatera as she puts them on for the first time; how they respond to her movements, and how they enhance the female figure. Collaborating with our photographer Blair, bringing out the qualities that will give these treasures the most visual appeal. It’s quite a fun and challenging way to tell a story. I do hope you get to enjoy the experience of receiving and wearing them as much as I do creating them.

'Beauty is a radiance that originates from within and comes from inner security and strong character.'

This past weekend I had the pleasure of replenishing my creative juices as I luxuriated in the company of some my favorite friends and enjoyed the inspiration that dance offers me.
It started Friday night as I was completely enchanted by Bellydance Evolution's rendition of 'Alice in Wonderland', an inspiring collection of dancers and performing artists telling this magical tale in a fashion that only this tribe could. And of course, who better to play the Hookah-Smoking Catepillar than Sharon Kihara?
Years ago my friendship with Sharon reached new heights when we became tour buddies while performing with the Bellydance Superstars. She’s a hilariously funny woman with a wise soul. She has been a great listener and teacher for me, and her creative expression is a true inspiration. After spending last weekend catching up with Sharon, I was reminded of how grateful I am for having such inspiring friends.  It’s friendship like this that helps me remember who I am and fills my sails with the next creative breath of air.
Featured Styles: Ruffle Flare Pant, Bamboo & Lace Cami Bra, Hooded Athena Blouse (coming soon)

Living in San Diego, any time i get the chance to be in L.A. (which for an Urban Fashionista is not a rare occurrence) I make sure to schedule my entire trip around making one of this woman’s classes. Gisella Sambista teaches a glorious cocktail of Samba, Afro-Brazilian, Capoeira, Hip- Hop, Street Jazz, Funk dance and Zumba®. I’ll let this video tell the rest of the story. xo

★  Ruffle Flare Pants  ★

Spring has sprung and my creative juices are flowing. With my attention particularly captivated by Bellydance, I planted a seed in the earth of my dance foundation that is now in season to germinate.

I am excited to reveal the Ruffle Flare, my favorite new dance pant embellished with fresh and flouncy ruffles and feminine lace waistband.

"Rendezvous" is a secret agent of seduction. She will pull you in with promises of something sweet, but something much more sinister lies underneath. Hauntingly beautiful vocals, sweeping atmospheres and luxurious melodies seduce your better judgement… ;)

★ Zoe Jakes Collection ★

Belly Dance is my muse; she inspires my soul expression to move with majestic undulations and percussive hips.
I have developed a sincere reverence for the dancer who has committed her life’s energy to this art form. I am not alone in sharing this sentiment of the inspiring world class dancer, Zoe Jakes. Her fans, myself included, admire her excellence, whether it’s through her dramatic stage performance, or when she is teaching workshops or producing music with Beats Antique.
 
With Zoe as my inspiration, I have created a premium dance collection fit to meet the demands of your serious dance performance. Crafted from durable organic bamboo blend, these designs are equipped to tour the globe and have you looking world class.

'Leaving bullets behind
Stripping right thru time
Maybe stop and divine
Burning out to shine
Losing øur minds
Sipping drunk on wine
Oh baby one last time…’
