The only beach towel you will ever need!

What up boys & girls!

Here I am again and this time to let you know of the only thing you will (probably) need during this sumer! You might be thinking a new outfit or shoes or perfume..well, even though I study fashion design, that is not what I consider quite important during this season. Because of the fact that I come from a quite tropical country, the most important for me would be to feel comfortable while by the beach, which is where I will be spending most of my time 🙂OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Not a long time ago I got to know about this amazing beach towel designed by the sweetest guys in San Diego. But what is so special about a beach towel, Mariana? You might be thinking, huh… I bet you at some point had to improvise a little pillow (made out of clothes, backpacks and the most crazy shit) in order to lay down by the sand and not feel pain by the end of the day! Well, it always happened to me, but Bruno, Brandon and Steve thought of a towel that comes with a light pillow inside, so you can easily carry everywhere you go with no extra weight!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Not only that, but the towel is eco-friendly and made out if 100% turkish cotton, which makes it extra-comfy.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I could not wait to test mine and here you can see the infinite ways you can use it. Beach towel, sarong, turban, headband, you name it!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you want to help out this amazing guys by backing up the project, run to see their campaign and pre-order your Sand Cloud towel, I am sure you will love it ❤

Love, Mari.

Let jewellery picture her story

Let jewellery picture her story: An Interview with jewellery lover Joana Roxana

For Roxana, it all started as a hobby and as a way to express her own reality, but today she dreams of launching her first collection by the end of this year.

HYBRIDA girls love to see passionate people that enjoy doing what they love the most, because it is inspiring and it is important to support people like Roxana. We want to show the world that a dream does come true if you fight for it!

Today I’m delighted to share her story, her lovely handmade jewellery and passion for re-design of old pieces of jewellery.

So, are you ready to meet Joana?

Interview after the picture ;).

When did you start doing Jewelry?

In 2012, 1 year after I came to Denmark (I am from Romania). At the time I was studying management and it was not what I really enjoyed doing, so whenever I had some spare time I would do drawings, painting…so I started drawing jewellery. At that time I did not see it as something that would grow on me.

How is your design process?

I gather old pieces of jewellery from second-hand shops, fairs from different countries, and I purchase old pieces of jewellery that inspires me.

I try to look at other people’s work and get inspired with different techniques and afterwards I redesign the jewellery in my own way using various techniques.

selected1

What inspires you?

Everything that surrounds me inspires me. But something that inspires me the most is nature and Frida Kahlo.

selected2

Who does your jewellery appeal to?
A feminine, girly, and elegant person who loves nature, children, animals, and is romantic. Someone who has an inner beauty inside her and she wants to show it to the world in different ways – and a piece of jewellery is one of them.

What is your favourite piece of jewellery?

It is a necklace made out of an old bracelet, which was a gift from my grandmother back when I was only 18. It broke and I felt sorry about it so I decided to give it a new life and re-design it. The chain of the necklace is a silver chain, which was a gift from my mother… The pearls were purchased from a vintage fair. So I’m kind of wearing 3 generations of my family here! I feel strongly attached to this piece because it’s nostalgic and it brings me back good memories. It is a special piece that I connect to.

Future plans?

By the end of this year I have a plan to start up a collection of statement necklaces using the Macramé technique. The Macramé technique is method where you make knots in a cord.

One of the main core values is quality so I will try to incorporate that into my designs by creating something rustic, simple – but unique.

selected4

Any idea for the brand name?

I’m not a hundred percent sure but it will probably be something like Joy Chic because my pieces are joyful and chic at the same time – those two words represent me and are also in my own core values.

Copenhagen Street Food

Hi there!

The other day I went with a friend of mine to an International street food space here in Copenhagen, where they also promote sustainability.

The name is Copenhagen Street Food, and here you can be served healthy fast food for little money ( a meal for at least 50 dkk)

It is such a cosy place, located at a calm area near the harbour with such a beautiful view and panorama .

With its only  2 months existence, the  place is already making a good impression with their huge range of colourful food market for the people that lives in the centre of Copenhagen with an amazing view to Copenhagen Operahouse and the Royal Playhouse.

The market is for everybody and you can find food from many countries like: Cuba, Spain, Italy, Mexico, France etc. In some of the stands it is possible to pay with both cash and cards in others only cash, so make sure that you have some money with you just in case.

Unisex

Hi guys!

My friend told me about this designer yesterday called Rad Hourani who is designing unisex clothes. I think this is so cool because it is not the “usual” unisex clothes. The designs are so cool and in a way they are timeless because of the minimal cuts and overall look. I am in love with all of them!

Take a look – how cool is this!

ELLE Style Awards 2014

Hi everyone!

Last night I had the chance to be at ELLE Style Awards 2014, which took place in Concert Hall in DR City.

It was such a glamorous evening with a lot of stylish and talented people. I did not know what to wear for such an event, so i had decided to design and sew my own dress.

There were so many nominees and prizes that I won’t be able to make a review of all of them today  but on my next post I will let you know in more details about what my thoughts are about each winner.  For now, just a short review of what happened and off course a lot of pictures to get you into the mood of the ELLE style Awards.

Mark Kenly Collection view with Uffe Buchard

Hey guys, as I mentioned on my last post about Mark Kenly, that is the brand where I am having my internship and yesterday he showed a preview of his SS15 collection to the Danish fashion master Uffe Buchard! Probably some of you have seen him on Danmark´s Next Top Model, but he is also the mind behind the fashion magazine DANSK.

Well, I helped out during the small show and had the chance to take some snaps to give you a taste of what is about to come, hope you will enjoy it and stay tuned for his show under CPH Fashion Week 😉 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Design proposal for Armoire D’homme

Hi guys!

As you have seen Noe & Mari’s posts regarding our big project, I will show you my final result. I also had to design for the same brand as Mari, called Armoire D’homme, and I decided to create womenswear for them, with focus on multi functionality in the garments. The garments had functions, where you can take the bottom part off from the top, to make it a crop top. And for the skirt, you can take the top layer off to only have a basic skirt under.

It has been 2 VERY busy weeks, but definitely worth the hard work when I look at the final result.

I hope you like it! 🙂 Feel free to let me know what you think.
