My favourite local Bay Area Designer, Alyssa Casares, just came out with her new spring collection last week for her line, Alyssa Nicole. Here is a description from her blog about the new collection:
"I wanted to design a collection inspired by "California Girls", and since I am a California girl myself, I've had plenty of 'fun in the sun' memories to help inspire this line. I handmade and designed all the dresses & accessories myself. I am really excited about the reconstructed vintage straw handbags, I found the cutest assorted fruit decorative patches to put on each bag."
I really admire how Alyssa has stepped it up with her own prints in the dresses and scarves. Especially with the bags! I am truly impressed. I love the lookbook video too. It's like watching a little runway show.
Later I plan to post my favourite pictures from the photoshoot.
Merceds-Benz New York Fashion Week is coming up on Thursday! I'm super excited to watch the live stream shows. I'll be able to go to them someday.
Have a great week.
