When I started the L’ Antonio Resort Wear line, the clothing itself, spoke for ninety-five percent of the style. The other five percent was the jewelry and accessories. Yet, it’s that five percent that completes and accentuates an outfit taking it to the next level and making the look uniquely you.

Jewelry is one of the most important pieces when putting together an outfit. It elevates the style you are trying to create and can be a symbol of identity. From wearing a ring in your nose or on your toes; to sunglasses, hair pieces and necklaces…it’s all part of a statement that speaks to your identity.

I recently visited Delhi, India. What an experience! I was most intrigued by the craftsmanship that goes into some of the everyday wear jewelry. Although you can find great and inexpensive deals at various markets, the variety of styles offered gives you a vast selection for your particular taste. I got a memorable and first-hand lesson on the differences between wedding jewelry as opposed to everyday wear.

Our cover designer, Saima Chaudhry is a jewelry designer, event organizer, and filmmaker who has been in the business for several years. Her company, Indira’s Closet, has a diverse selection of styles and one of a kind pieces ranging from $10.00 to $8,000.00. Her efforts to change the way models are treated in the industry is documented in her upcoming film “Because I Never Give Up.”

There are so many items to discuss such as scarves, watches, shoes, and glasses, but the jewelry stands out from those selections. We covered each category and tried our best to give you a variety of information so when you make that final selection for your outfit, it looks like you and all you are worth.

I want to take the time to thank everyone for your wonderful submissions and the continued support of i-Fashion Magazine. My team and I will be taking a brief break to restructure the company so we can bring you a more fashion conscious staff, a more informative website and most of all, better magazine content and structure. The next issue will be published July 15th which is swim and resort wear, so look forward to your awesome submissions and as always, thank you for your support.

Webster says, marriage is the legal or formal recognized union of two people. Now that may be true and sometimes that lasting union is not accomplished until multiple tries, but as long as you and your significant other are happy, go for it. I’m not here to tell you how to get a perfect mate or what circumstances will and will not work, that is not my expertise, but I will show how to look good on your special day by introducing you to some of my designer friends whose specialty is just that.

Whether you are trying to do this for the first time or crossing your fingers at number three, marriage is what two individuals make of it. My parents are pushing 53 years of marriage and doing it gracefully. No, things were not easy, but looking at them now, I can’t image what they would do without each other. It’s a blessing to see how they complement each other in so many ways.

Wedding designers Jewel Shannon and David Marseille, have been designing wedding gowns for years. Their pieces have been worn by celebrities and socialites, but they still find joy in catering to the average consumer. Good to know people in bridal fashion houses. Model Rita Drayton has been out there doing her thing for some years now and had become a triple threat… modeling, make-up artist and stylist. And does each of them very well. She decided to finally share her thoughts on marriage, modeling, styling and keeping ahead on the industry that may have thrown her some curve balls.

As you know, our traveling photographer Dennis Madigan went to Brussels for a show by famed Designer / Producer Zaina Kaoutar Chaoui. The United Designer Fashion World Show (UDFW) was the first of it’s kind in Brussels, featuring designers from all over the world. Prior to the show, i-fashion was able to get permission from the mayor to do an exclusive photo shoot with Zania’s garments. The images came out WONDERFUL!

We will also take a look at various wedding styles from high-end designers Naeem Khan, Reem Acra, Viktor and Rolf as well as some pretty amazing ready to wear local shows.

Enjoy and as always thanks for your continued support.

Fashion Week Special - Get Your copy @ http://i-fashionmag.com/magazine-2/

Models, designers, make-up artists, hair stylists, show producers…did I mention models…lol.
It seems like all of New York City is a huge runway packed with fashionistas strutting their stuff, heading to their fashionable destinations, truly a show in and of itself.

There are so many shows to attend and definitely not enough time to cover all of them, but we had the honor of being invited to some great presentations this season. We even started some fresh and hopefully long term relationships.

The Journey Fashion Festival produced and choreographed by Malena Belafonte was one of the highlights this season. Malena went all out this season bringing together some of the best designers to showcase and perform at the Peter Norton Symphony Space. The entire production team was on point and catered to our every need. Oh, I forgot to mention that our line, L’ Antonio, was part of the show. We were so honored to have a chapter in Malena’s Journey and put our best forward. Henry Picado, Minan Wong, Amnesia, Cenia, Helen Sanchez and Corey Woods were some of the big designers that set fire to the runway alongside singer-songwriter Shelita Burke and other fierce entertainers.

That show set the standard for all the shows we saw after.

Now there were some shows that need help in terms of production and casting, but we understand that producing a show is not easy. And the first time is one hell of a learning experience. Needless to say, we were happy to assist and will attend next season to lend a hand.

I’m not going to keep you long because I know you want to dive into this issue, but I must say, there is so much great talent out there, i-Fashion is truly dedicated to honing in and supporting those who are trying to take things to another level.

We thank you for your support and look forward to another fashionable season with you.

This issue… is the issue that will set the standard for other issues to come.

It’s amazing when you finally realize that growth, both personal and professional, requires not only hard work, but surrounding yourself with people who are dedicated to helping you grow. It’s difficult to challenge yourself and frustrating when others challenge you...AND incredibly rewarding when you finally get it, begin to think outside of the box and realize that since you’ve been challenged, you’ve grown and your product has grown. Those who are challenging you are also growing and those who are stagnant…Oh well. No need to look in the rearview mirror.

This 40 plus and marvelous issue is meant for, you, our readers to see and read what challenges and triumphs those who have been in the business for a long time are facing and have faced. It also gives you a look at those who have started their career at a later age and what it takes to move forward. You’ll get a deep and inside look at accomplished individuals with solid professions such as doctors, lawyers and business owners who have taken up modeling and fashion related interests as a means of self-growth and living long time dreams or helping others live their dreams.

In this age of women empowerment modeling is much more than the outside appearance. The way we look, dress and walk is only a catalyst for our true selves. The men and women in this issue are icons in their own unique ways. Their stories are engaging and powerful. Let this also be an opportunity for you to take a reflective and introspective look at yourself, what you have contributed and the dreams you have lived and still want to manifest.

Personally, it was a challenge for me to put this issue together because it took me completely out of my comfort zone and had me take a deeper look at myself, my business and help these individuals tell their stories. Stories that will hopefully uplift and help the younger generation take themselves and their careers more seriously.

Get Your December 2018 Issue Now!!
http://i-fashionmag.com/magazine-2/

It’s that time of year again when friends and family get together, celebrate the holidays and set goals for the New Year. With the birth of the L’ Antonio brand in May and the steady growth of i-Fashion Magazine, I can’t help but feel blessed.

It’s been a challenging year. Not in a negative way, but I am challenging myself in areas I know I need to grow, going to the unknown and seeing how things can be done differently. Besides, if the current way isn’t getting you to your intended goals, then it’s time to change it up.

I‘m thankful for the people I’ve chosen to surround myself with. They challenge me to be better and to think different. I won’t lie, sometimes it’s hard being pushed out of your comfort zone but I now understand that my comfort zone is just a base, not a monument and I’ll always welcome change and different ways of doing things.

We did a lot of traveling in 2018 and will be doing even more to bring you the fashion elite from all over the globe. We traveled to Canada and met Dr. Natalia Kargbo who organized a fantastic show benefiting Mental Health; Martha’s Vineyard to meet with and help models, both young and seasoned, realize that they can still reach their dreams. We traveled to North Carolina to build a foundation for L’Antonio and encourage model completion winners that this is just the beginning. We organized Pop-Up shops and private shows to build the clientele we want to market too. Art Basel Miami awakened the art lover in me and highlighted the important intersection of art, fashion and design. But most of all, we supported each other and realized that our growth and our brand cannot be elevated alone.

We are blessed to have the opportunities to collaborate with individuals and companies who not only support our vision, but who are also willing to share information that will help us grow and achieve our goals.

I want to take the time to thank everyone who contributed and supported us and wish everyone a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

As we approach the holidays, especially Thanksgiving, it gives me time to reflect and be thankful for those that have crossed my path and given me the strength and insight to improve not only the magazine, but improve myself as a person both and professionally & personally.

I want to thank my team for meeting my high demands and deadlines but understanding that we can only make this magazine better by working together and we can elevate ourselves as human beings through our craft. I especially want to thank my partner, Laura Quiros for constantly pushing me to do better and seeing the greatness in me and others, even though we may not see it in ourselves.

At this time I want to welcome Angelica Guillen to the i-Fashion Team. Angelica is an established model with a great fashion resume and will be the Editor of the new Fashion and Leisure section. Read her interesting write up on the country of Panama. I’m sure you’ll want to take a trip after. I would also like to welcome Dr. Laura Quiros as a contributing Editor. Dr. Quiros is a professor at Adelphi University with a PHD in Social Welfare and Philosophy. Laura reached out to Chrisette Michele and conducted this very personal & insightful interview. Both Angelica & Laura combine their specialized talents to bring fresh ideas to the magazine.

This issue is very special because we have the multitalented, Chrisette Michele who gave us some insight on her personal and professional growth, her passion for empowerment and her personal critique on the L’ Antonio brand.
We have very captivating editorials from designers and good friends Cory Rogers, Vanny Tousignant, Anne Couture, Pia Bolte, Happy Couture, Richard Petit & more.

There are highlights from fashion shows, local and overseas photoshoots, the winners from the Mrs. Diaspora Models International Beauty Competition who will be fully interviewed in the January 2019 edition of i-Fashion Magazine.

Congratulations to all whose submissions were published and thank you to everyone for your continued support.

Get Your Kids Issue Today.. www.i-fashionmag.com

Our Kids Fashion issue is one of my favorites simply because of the pure heart and soul that these kids bring to their budding careers in fashion.

It is so refreshing to see young people so focused on a career. A career in fashion prepares them for the future by learning how to interact with different people, learning about different cultures and at the same time, having fun. I feel it’s our responsibility as grown-ups to guide and mentor the young minds of today, not necessarily force them into what we feel is best but let them express themselves and nurture their growth.

This issue we have a very special young lady, Jolie Darvin, who is a prime example of a young mind doing what she loves, regardless of what struggles are thrown her way. This 10 year old super model is unapologetically grabbing the fashion industry by the horns and fighting for her life while doing it. Kind of puts a lot of things in perspective. Read her story and I’m sure you will be inspired.

Established fashion designer, Eunika Simmons, assisted her two sons, Carlos and Nigel to help create a clothing line called Young Gods. The line is an eccentric mixture of colors and patterns for today’s hip youngster. Each unique piece represents its’ own personality which is further emphasized by the selection of endearing models that displayed their talents in front the camera.

Our very own Chanise Smith gave us a glimpse into her program, Listen To Your Heart, and what her program has done for the young ladies that joined her. The motivation that Chanise and her team gave these young ladies was phenomenal. The program created a sisterhood bond that will benefit them for years to come, hopefully a lifetime.

We are so pleased to showcase models from ages 1-16 and hopefully inspire them to pursue their dreams of modeling, designing, acting or really…. whatever they wish.

Thanks to everyone that submitted and as always, thanks for your continued support.

Another fashion week has come and gone and what I find amazing is how many new and talented designers have emerged since last season.
I had the opportunity to venture out to several independent shows and I was happily surprised at the statements these designers are making through their collections. Now, in the height of the #Me Too Movement and women empowerment finally picking up more momentum, it’s great that this generation of designers is expressing themselves through their fashion and their communications with other cultures. We are all striving to reach a common goal of unity.

As fashion week kicked off, I spent the opening days at the Toronto International Film Festival. Leaving Toronto, I felt inspired and exhilarated. I watched 4 documentaries all of which were grounded in purpose, intentionality and driven by what it takes to live your dream. All of the docs captured the challenges and struggles associated with living your dream. I am taking this time now to re-engage you as the Editor in Chief of i-Fashion Magazine, a fashion and beauty photographer for the past 30 years, and more recently, the designer of L’ Antonio Resort Wear. My journey has not been without struggle and also grounded in my passions and visions.
The first step, for me, was identifying my passion, taking a deep and intentional look at what drives me and next figuring out how to surround myself with people who both support and challenge me to level up. This weekend also reminded me that taking a minute to go outside of my comfort zone is necessary, even when it doesn’t feel comfortable.

Our September issue covers fashion week shows primarily in New York. As my photographers up their game you the reader benefit. In this issue, you will see the creative force of Karl M. Lee, Dennis Madigan, who work together like clockwork and construct an extra step when covering shows.

Maarkah Fashion Week was one of my favorites. CEO and Producer Rabab Abdalla, compiled some of the greatest designers from all over the world. The two-day event took fashion to a whole new level. The mixture of different ethnicities coupled with a serious woman empowerment theme was captivating from the beginning. This is a show you don’t want to miss next season.

At this time I’d like to give much respect to my good friend William Michael Reid who celebrated his 50th birthday and orchestrated a top-notch show. NYC Live gets better and better every year. Congratulations!

Also, thank you Richaed Simpson for a wonderful cover.

As always, thanks for your continued support.
