Frankie B Hollywood
Another day of fashion was hosted by Pier59, with the relaunch of Frankie B Hollywood. The denim designer Daniella Clarke was born in Israel and raised in South Africa. Having a diverse back ground then marrying her rocker husband from “Guns N‘ Roses” inspired the designers denim collection. She first designed denim for her self; after an actress offered to buy them, Clarke soon started her own line.
The collection for Spring/Summer 2016 highlights of course amazing denim but adds silk suits, tailored coats and unisex clothing. One of my favorite pieces is the second photo –blush tones with a silk top and culotte inspired pants. The collection screams rocker girl chic but also has versatile light weight pieces for those summer nights. Frankie B. Hollywood combines an L.A rock lifestyle for every girl and guy that wants to add flavor to there wardrobe.
“I think it’s important to work with a younger team in order to stay current and that means letting them have a hand in the design process. One of my biggest fears being in a creative industry is being stale.-Daniella Clarke

Let me take you back to 2012 when I first started editing – I put two Dior Commercials together starring Jude Law and Charlize Theron. I added Nat King Cole’s “Lush Life” remix, produced my Cee-Lo Green. I literally taught myself Final Cut Pro for this project. Aww memories!!! I hope you enjoy!

This post is all about “spring/summer” earrings! During Fashion Week, I noticed layered necklaces, arm cuffs and colorful accessories. I’m really looking forward to the new fringe and gold trends this season. I would wear the apron bow-back jumpsuit from “Madewell” or the fitted lerisa maxi dress from “Hanifa” and add eye-catching earrings. My top trends for the season are below and yes their are definitely splurge items.
