One thing that has taken up a lot of my time recently is modeling. Well, not exactly the modeling that comes to mind, but modeling all the same. Jacki Robichaud, one of my friends, is a freshman in college this year majoring in fashion design. This summer, she put together a fashion show and along with another designer, designed her own clothing line. She's no amateur, either. Jacki's designs, part of a collection called Jack Attackk, are seriously amazing. She's insanely talented. The best part about the fashion show? All of the proceeds raised went to fighting cancer. The second best part? Jacki asked me to be a runway model, along with ten other girls, in her show.
The fashion show was incredible; tons of people showed up to the event. I felt like a real model when I walked down the runway ... it was that professional! Since the show, we've been doing tons of photoshoots in our custom-made dresses for Jacki's portfolio. I wish I could be a real model ... it's the most amazing feeling ever.
When the pictures from the newest photoshoot are edited, I'm hoping to put them up here for everyone to see. They came out gorgeous! Anyway, enough of my nostalgia. What I wanted to post about today was a jewelry line I came across a while back called Fenton-Fallon Jewelry. It has been featured in such magazines as Harper's BAZAAR, Italian VOGUE, Japanese VOGUE, Purple, Absolute, and The New York Times T Magazine. The Fenton jewelry line was designed by Dana Lorenz in Febuary of 2005, and has since been picked up by major luxury retailers such as Ikram in Chicago and Barneys New York. The Fallon jewelry line was designed as a second part to Lorenz's success story in 2007.
I fell in love with both of these collections right away. The jewelry is typically chunky and statement-making, while still holding that air of classiness that everyone desires. It is eye-popping and magnificent, and you can either wear it casually or dress it up for a night out. Here are some of my favorite pieces:
