To my lovely readers— I am currently in Honduras (see more HERE ), I will still be posting, but I have invited some friends to guest post for me as well. First up is the lovely Ladyofashion Madison of Fashion Tales. I love that Madison has a creative eye and is always on fashion’s cutting edge. Make sure you to make her feel welcome by leaving a comment below!
Hello everyone! It’s Madison, better known as Ladyofashion from FASHION TALES. I am extremely excited to take part in a guest post for Alexis here at North On Harper during her holiday. The lovely Alexis, whom I’ve developed a great appreciation for, is a lady who shares passions for some of my favourite genres: from shoes, art, and fashion to travelling and interiors. Well, I knew it couldn’t be long before our blogging spirits gracefully crossed paths. I appreciate her genuine perspective, as well as her infamous wine series, which I absolutely love!
But enough about that … I am here to share with you a collection from one of my dear friends, fashion designer Paidemoyo Chideya. I am so proud of this woman and the growth of her brand, DeMOYO. It’s incredible to see a label grow right before your eyes. In fact, it wasn’t too long ago when I chatted with Chideya about her previous line.
Since then, Chideya has taken colour and unique style-lines to a new level with her designing, something that her current clientele appreciates but that is more specifically geared toward her future customers. Her latest spring collection, Sōlācia, fuses several elements of soft hues and structured seaming with an intentional bolt (not splash) of colour.
It’s a blended expression of avant-garde, wearable art, and practical edge that can be translated from the effects of the sun’s light, clouds, and their counterparts. “It’s a play on light, depth of colour, and form…” said Chideya. So, what does the designer herself love the most about the new collection? “It’s accessible to women, yet it’s very chic. It has that je ne sais quoi about it!”
Chideya, has been inspiring to me not solely because of her designs but her attitude on life in general. She’s the type of designer who truly stands by her work. She’s passionate about the art of construction and exudes positive progression. She can pierce you with an uplifting message in a phrase, just as quickly as a simple wave given when signing off the runway. I hope that you will be on the lookout to see more from this emerging designer.
