Maiden-Art jewelry design / jewelry fashion blogs
Hello Rockmantic People!
Welcome back from Holidays! September is always a new start and here at Maiden-Art boutique, We thought to start with an amazing new line of jackets to pair with our jewelry.
I have the pleasure to present you : Elelcie, beautiful handmade and handcrafted jackets and her designer Rajvi Lodhia
Discover Elelcie world through my interview with Rajvi.
1) When & why did you start Elelcie?
I have always had an interest for fashion but also a passion for designing my own clothes. I decided to make a few samples to sell to a few people and after designing and creating the samples, I received positive feedback. From that moment on I decided I would start my own clothing line of women's jackets.
2) Tell me a little more about your collection, brand and your favorite designs.
I love to trying new designs, new fabric and seeing how they would sell.
My collection doesn't have one particular theme, I prefer for women with difference sizes to feel comfortable knowing that the item they are wearing can fit someone smaller or bigger than them. The jackets vary in sizes, but most of them are one size fits all.
The idea is for women to feel comfortable and empowered wearing the jackets.
These jackets are created to "complete" the look; for example if someone was wearing a plain outfit, the jacket would enhance the look they are going for.
3) Where did you study and which is your background?
I didn't study fashion, I just love it enough to learn about it as I go.
4) How would you describe your style?
Fun, charismatic and chic.
5) Would you like to design collection for an important brand? if so which one?
I haven't thought that far as I enjoy doing my own line and I am still learning the ins and outs of this industry.
6) Any celebrities wearing your designs?
7) Where do you sell your collections mostly?
Online or in person.
8) How do you see your business in future?
I see Elelcie growing and developing to a well established brand. Having a few boutiques set up all over the world and meeting our clients needs.
Looking forward to seeing YOU wearing Elelcie collection!
Dear Rockmantic readers,
Every season, we ask the same question: "Is nail art dead yet?"
Not at all, for sure. If you check the latest magazines about trends, the fashion shows and all celebrities styles, you will see lots of nail art and charms rings, like the pictures below.
Nail rings and charms are popular in Hollywood as well. Beyoncé wears nail rings in several of her videos, including Run the World (Girls) and Sweet Dreams.
Black Book Magazine decked out Nicole Richie in gold serpent rings for their issue.
Chanel fashion shows details with nail rings and charms rings.
Aren't they cool?

Hello Rockmantic People,
Today, I have the pleasure to present you a new pop up store at my boutique Maiden-Art, Pink Tahiti store of beautiful Brazilian beachwear, available until the end of May 2017.
For the occasion, I interviewed the owner of Pink Tahiti, Anna and she told me the story behind her beautiful concept store and her bikini beachwear.
So let's dive in!
1. When & why did you start Pink Tahiti store?
I started selling online through concept sites in 2013, by buying bikinis and swimwear in bulk from warehouses. This was following a period of uncertainty, having been made redundant in 2011 from a job and career I loved. I was one of many across the UK at that time and found myself flitted from one employment to another never really finding my feet again. I developed my first website in 2014 and Pink Tahiti was born.
I've have always had a love for bikinis and swimwear. It's the first things I pack when planning a holiday wardrobe and I always have a couple in my hand luggage just in case my hold luggage doesn't make it to the same destination as me, much to the amusement of my family and friends.
2. Tell me a little more about your store and you favorite designs.
The concept behind Pink Tahiti was to have a small online boutique store, selling beach and resort wear. To have five or six brands and offer their full collections rather than having multiple brands and feature one or two of their designs.
This season, my favorite designs is Guria Beachwear's Wild Wings multi-string bikini top and sash bottoms with its delicate dragonfly print in blues and purple. It looks and feels amazing.
Favorite brands Guria Beachwear (Brazilian brand) and Amoir Camaira (British brand).
3. Where did you study and which is your background?
I had no idea of retail, website design or social media management when I started. I knew what I wanted to do and spent many a sleepless night pulling it all together. I researched, joined forums and spoke to online and high-street store owners to find out about the good, the bad and the ugly. I've learn by my mistakes and still learn something new every day.
It's been trial and error to find the right brands, although they might produce some good quality designs and styles they are not so hot on customer service or working in partnership with small businesses!
4. How would you describe your style?
A collection of bikinis, swimwear and beachwear for women who spend their time by the pool or enjoying the fabulous beaches around the world, beach to bar lifestyle and high-life glamour.
5. Any celebrities wearing your designs?
Guria Beachwear bikinis are frequently seen on The Bachelorette, they have also been modelled in Sports Illustrated, Playboy, Dallas Cowboys Magazine, NY Jets calendar, Elle Canada and Muscle and Fitness magazine. Kourtney Kardashian has been seen wearing Guria Beachwear in the past.
Denise Van Outen, Amy Willerton, Melanie Sykes and Jess Wright have all been seen wearing Amoir Camaira.
6. Where do you sell your collections mostly?
Pink Tahiti is purely an online store. We are the only store on and offline in Europe to stock Guria Beachwear. Summer 2017 will see our first pop up space.
7. How do you see your business in future?
We aim to open our first bricks and mortar boutique within the next couple of years. The Pink Tahiti concept will stay the same, but hope to add our own swimwear brand to our collection.
Aren't them beautiful and absolutely sexy?

See ya soon!
