Zoobilation 2017

"Seems like each year, the well-heeled citizens of Indianapolis are becoming more and more daring with their outfits…or maybe it was just the theme of this year’s event – Tropical Adventure – that spurned so much color and tropic inspired outfits. Whatever the case, The Zoo’s annual fundraiser continues to be the party of the summer season, and with good reason! We’re already counting down the days to 2018’s event!" PATTERN S/O to @Stylenspire for creating such a beautiful dress and to @HerStoryIndy for wearing it so…..

SS'16 POOSH COLLECTION

A beautiful interpretation of luxury  Prêt and trendy chic styles in a mixed media collage of mediums. 
With a distinct afrocentric signature celebrating the designer's African culture, we see the use of traditional African Ankara Print and Lace fabrics, including Denim in the designs.

Spring '16 Capsule

At the turn of the Winter season, there is a beautiful birth that takes place in nature and is reflected in each of our lives. Spring is a budding season that brings the promise of warmth, green, and a softness that encourages us all to smile anew and shed the heaviness of the Winter. One of the way fashion enthusiasts and all alike launch into the newness of this season is through fashion. Our wardrobe choices change as we purge the heavy layering pieces to embrace soft colors and lighter, floral pieces into our style translation. As such, we decided to go on this Stylenspiration journey through Spring and into the Summer with these 'Spring Edits'. I trust you will love them as much as we do. Enjoy!

"The ensembles captured in these pictures illustrate how to style prints, patterns and textures, layered for seasonal warmth and fashionable effect. Each style feature is centered around the Ankara print maxi dress and Ankara print bootcut pants, to showcase the style aesthetic of an Urban Jungle vibe for fall fashion." Y.S.
