Designer of the week – Alexis Mabille

Hello Colorlovers, 

hope you enjoy your days, and ramadan goes well with my muslim readers. Fasting isn't actually only about feeling hungry and thirsty, but just to feel how others need our help and how good we are living sometimes, even our pains and aches and losses, are nothing towards millions of others who are suffering from diseases and problems we can't even imagine. We should be helping each other and not planting hatred and negativity around the world, because we all live in it and what goes around comes back around, to all of us. There is so much more to learn through this month of Ramadan.

Now to the designer of the week, who isn't actually unknown but I had to mention him on my blog. Since I have seen his designs on a girl wearing it on lookbook. I wondered who the designer is. I love the fabrics he uses and the cuts. The designer I am talking about is called Alexis Mabille. He is currently living in Marais, Paris (France).

You can visit his page here Alexis Mabille

or his eShop here Alexis Mabille eShop

I picked up those pieces that I loved the most and especially that it's flattering and that some suited my thoughts of dressing modest but still in fashion. The mixture of tulle with different fabrics makes it so feminine.

















Depending on the treasures from his eShop, I suggest you to go by yourself and discover what he has designed.

Fashion Post - Turbans

Hello colorlovers, 

hope you enjoy your days. Today's post won't be about one special designer but about where to find turbans and the way you can tie them, as I have been asked lately where to find turbans. 

The turban is in the eastern world a symbol of protection and respect. It's popular in places like India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan, the Middle East, North and East Africa, South Asia and parts of Jamaica. The turban can vary in the way you style it, there are several styles you can do.

In the 20's Paul Poiret made the turban in the western area en vogue, and ever since it became popular, a benchmark for luxury and class. Chanel and Prada made the turban stand out more in the 50's and 60's. Famous film stars like
Greta Garbo, Rita Hayworth, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren wore it.

It's actually really easy. The first time I saw the turban I thought it was difficult and not as easy as it looks like and was worried if the turban will stay in position on my head without worrying that during the day it looks like if I had a scarf war.

Well, I think many women had the same problem as me and that's why a lot of designers felt obliged to design the most popular headscarf style as a ready to wear piece. 
I came across a lot of designers, who deal with rich materials and understand what a woman with standards wants indeed, to look good on any occasion.

First of all it's good to know how it's tied.
There are several videos and vloggers who shows how to tie a turban step by step. 

The easiest ones are these ones.

I would have put lots more, but I just picked the ones where I think it's easy to begin with, and are  nice to try out with lots of other styles. So be creative.

Now as so many still don't want to do it on their own, you are able to find several boutiques and shops.

I am going to list some boutiques and turban sellers you can wear ready.
