BERNHARD DYNE

Bernhard Dyne presented her latest collection “VRONSKY” at London Fashion Week. Bernhard Dyne’s collection for Spring/Summer’18 was warmly welcomed both by press and celebrity audience some to mentionSarah Harding, Rebecca Choo, Love Island contestant Nathan Joseph and political scientist Anna Maria Galojan.

This one of a kind collection is the first collaboration between Bernhard Dyne and milliner Anna Gilder.

Bernhard Dyne is a British brand designed by Lilidžand Liilia Aunapuu.  Bernhard Dyne collections are described by beautiful feminine aesthetics and elegant styles influenced by cultural movements. This is the third time when Bernhard Dyne has been showcased at London Fashion Week. The brand has received positive feedback both locally and internationally.

Bernhard Dyne’s latest collection “VRONSKY” is inspired by Leo Tolstoy’s novel ‘Anna Karenina’. Collection for Spring/Summer’18 captures the essence of Imperial Russia – magnificent dresses reflecting the identity of women of the time. The muse of the collection is Tolstoy’s heroine Anna Karenina- a strong, statuesque and elegant woman with fashion sense influenced by social status and complex internal life.

The styles are characterised by elegant overabundance- luxurious and full dresses, rich silks and feminine silhouettes. Flowing silk dresses with sheer transparent sleeves and backs are complimented by floral motifs, 3D flower effects and abundance of pearls and crystals.

Bordeaux is the main colour for Spring/Summer’18 collection. The richness and different shades of Bordeaux symbolise the hidden depths and passions of Bernhard Dyne’s muse Anna Karenina. Colours are bold and dramatic.




Milliner Anna Gilder presented her SS18 collection“HIGH SOCIETY” alongside Bernhad Dyne. Anna Gilder pays homage to the feminine looks of 19th century Imperial Russia. The designer created magnificent creations of silk and taffeta, rich velvets decorated with decadent gold and silver lace and heavenly exotic feathers. Rich shades of reds allude to sparkling rubies which come alive with infusions of feminine pale blues. The embellishments and embroidery are dreamlike combining elements of the period and unveiling a more modern interpretation. The looks are extraordinary with just the right amount of structure and femininity combined with soft veiling to create a mysterious illusion.

Bullet Peace – Tribute Jewellery

HUMANITARIAN LEILA ALAOUI’S TRAGIC DEATH INSPIRES JEWELLERY DESIGNER JULIEN RIAD SAYOU’S ‘BULLET PEACE’ COLLECTION 
In 2016 tragically Lelia Alaoui was killed in a Burkina Faso terror attack, she was fatefully wounded and died after being shot by a jihadi gunman in Ouagadougou. She was working on an assignment for women’s rights in Burkina Faso for the UN Women and Amnesty International. The beautiful French-Moroccan photographer and video artist’s work on refugees was been exhibited globally, and featured in the likes of New York Times and Vogue.
In tribute to his dear friend Lelia and to help ensure her important work lives on, Julien has designed a jewellery collection entitled ‘Bullet Peace’, with all proceeds are going to Found Lelia Alaoui (http://www.fondationleilaalaoui.org) and a selection of charities that provide aid to children in conflict zones.



Julien Riad Sayou says, “Bullet Peace is probably my most personal collection, the creation process was bittersweet, knowing Lelia has gone, but that I could help in some small way help create change and unification across cultures around the globe”.
Julien adds about the collection, “The use of a bullet shape was important to help alter connotations that always attach themselves to bullets. Each Bullet Peace has been damaged in order to show that although people may be challenged, they cannot be broken. I have engraved the word ‘PEACE’ in 8 languages at the point of the bullet, along with Leila’s initials and the date ‘15.1’, inscribed at the base”.
 


He finishes by saying, “I hope all that wear the Bullet Peace collection do so as a symbol of hope and anti-terrorism”.
Each gold model of the Bullet Peace is a limited and numbered edition of 333. Prices begin at £270 to £999.

DEVON LEIGH JEWELRY

For the strong, adventurous and fierce woman
What do Lady Gaga, Jessica Alba, Emmy Rossum, Minnie Driver, Issa Rae, Priyanka Chopra, Jessica Simpson, Serena Williams, Britney Spears, Julianna Margulis, Oprah, and Joey King all have in common? – their love for Devon Leigh Jewelry.
Rooted with ancient cultural influences, Devon Leigh Jewelry combines luxurious hand painted metals with stunning semi-precious stones to create unique and vibrant accessory pieces that are literally works of art. Each piece is individually hand crafted by Leigh and her team in her downtown Los Angeles warehouse using only the finest materials and repurposed antique jewelry. The result? Every woman who wears her designs becomes a show-stopper wherever they go.  Already a winner of the Dallas Fashion Award, Rising Star Award nominee and worn among celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Emmy Rossum, Minnie Driver, Jessica Simpson and Priyanka Chopra, Devon Leigh proves that she is a force to be reckoned with in the fashion accessory world.



What started as a homemade piece of jewelry for a red carpet quickly grew into a full-time efficacious business with a masterpiece of a collection sold at Neiman Marcus and online at devonleighdesign.com for the fierce, confident, and discerning woman who knows what she wants. Leigh’s jewelry is about evolution; her evolution as a woman, as a wife and mother and as a designer. The pieces in many ways reflect aspects of her character, a balance of adventurous and refined, as well as the personal relationships she’s amassed along the way – “I’ve built my
business on one-on-one relationships with myclients,” says Devon Leigh, “This accessibility is very important to me.”
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Leigh received her BA in film and screenwriting from Loyola Marymount University, with the intention of going into the film industry. She knew she was on to something when devotees on her film sets began purchasing pieces right off her neck. Leigh’s modern sensibility and unique edgy designs continue to evolve with new inspiration reflecting the current fashion landscape and her own innate vision.
