Maternity Photoshoot Dress Decisions

29 Jun

So as some of you may know, I am a little more than 6 months pregnant. And of course I want to do a maternity shoot to capture this special time in my life. As a designer, of course my first thought was to make my own dress for the shoot. But maternity is a whole different kind of designing. All of a sudden you have this big basketball shape to design around in the middle of the body. Maternity is a new element for me as a designer, which is why I would love to get opinions on which dress I should create. I have sketched three looks to choose from. The main fabric for all three would likely be a light, flowy chiffon.
Your opinions are very much appreciated!! The polls will close in about 2 weeks. Comments are also welcome, I would love to hear what you have to say!

1 - Provenance

2 – Inception

A Fashion Show from Dec. 2010 and a Few Words on Business Relationships

5 May

This video is from a fashion show I did in December 2010. I put alot into this line and am very happy about how it looked on the runway. Expecially because of 2 models in particular. Candace King- who came all the way from Pittsbourgh to Palm Beach to participate in the show, and Floresca Isme who came from Orlando. These 2 ladies rocked it as you can see in the video and I am so glad that they were able to come and put their spin on things. Models with awesome walks can really enhance the clothing, and when you find the models that portray the look you want, treat them right, and keep it touch, because believe me– they are invaluable!!!

Relationships are vital in business. When people feel they can trust you, you are the first one they will come to if they have a need in your field. Trust comes from building a personal relationship and being reliable. As you can see, I have a great relationship with these two ladies in particular because of the way I highlighted them in the video. Them being great at what they do and being reliable, I had an urge to get creative in getting them exposure. Author Chris Brogan who co-wrote Trust Agents (a book on marketing) said at a seminar that a guy that he met at a BBQ and shared a couple drinks with led to Chris recommending many people to him and which ended up generating the guy tens of thousands of dollars. You never know how much one relationship can help your business. And more importantly- think of how many cool people you’ll meet and how much you’ll learn!

A Little About Me & My Brand

2 May

Fashion is one of the few art forms that all of us must participate in every day. Whether you throw on any old thing from the closet, or plan what you wear weeks in advance, you are making a choice about how you want to be perceived by the world. We live in an era that is unlike any other thus far. We have the power of choice more than ever before. For some, it is almost too much choice and can become overwhelming to keep up. For me, that choice is empowering. All that one can do with fashion is amazing. The possibilities of the combinations of textures, patterns, shapes, embellishments and structure give us the power to embody a branch of our personality and visually express it to the rest of the world. The great thing is that you can show a different branch every day, and eventually, with enough digging, the world may find the root of the tree below the wardrobe. As with trees, fashion changes every season. In fashion and in nature, fall and winter are my favorite.

For me, fashion started with a love for old paintings from the Baroque and Rococo period with women wearing beautiful gowns. Old movies from the 1920’s, 30’s, and 40’s intrigued me with how beautifully and intricately they dressed, particularly Pollyanna, Casablanca, and Citizen Kane. I have loved fabric since I can remember. Always running my fingers through different fabric, I was (and am) very particular about the way something should feel.

I didn’t begin to sew until I was 18 and encountered difficulty finding suitable clothing. I was a newlywed and wanted to wear all the great clothing that was out, but at the same time look like a respectable married woman. Unable to find such pieces, I began to create them. Thankfully, my husband had the knowledge of how to turn my talent into a brand. Also being that he is a producer gives my line an all around vibe by having custom made music for each fashion show.

Six years later, I have A. Rozier Design Studio that umbrellas a men’s line, women’s line, and tee shirt line: Elijah Ramon, Areli SInclair, and A.R.T. I take pride in all three. They are all branches of my personality and have grown to be like my children. Each with its own style, vibe, and way of life. One thing they all have in common though is confidence.

Needing technicality behind my passion is what brings me to Orlando, Fl. A few months from receiving my BFA in Fashion Design and Merchandising, my hope is to finish school with the knowledge needed to expand my clothing lines even further.

My true goal, however, lies in giving men and women the same empowerment that fashion gave me: a voice. There is always an alternative to the norm. Coco Chanel said it best: “To be irreplaceable, one must always be different”.
