This casual change in fashion comes from the sports influence: your yoga pants, banded joggers bottoms, wick-away fabrics, etc. With the sports influence being so prominent in fashion, we all love the idea of being more comfortable at work, but at what cost to our career advancement. Research shows that appearances do matter in terms of career advancement and personal success. I read about yoga pants...

Fall Fashion Event Look Book

The Fall season is a culture clash of design.  You will see a diversity of style that plays to the stories of ladylike, sport, bohemian and minimalism.  But there is a polish to every look and every look is influenced by the individual trends. Embellished bottoms, shirting and blouses, velvet, shine and metallic, hardware in zippers and embroidery in luxe knitwear- novelty details reign. There is a rich display of fabrics and colors, definitely to the warmer side of the color palette.  Rich burgundy, browns, camels, olives, saffron, paprika and teals. {{ show_1 }} As we say here at Jophiel, it is a diamonds for day in accessories, it is velvet for day in casual sport looks.  This trend of...
