New York is renowned for its fashion culture, making it an extremely competitive city to make it as a designer. You need to be strongly driven, ambitious and have a rare or unique talent to stand above the rest. This is actually what owner and founder Eve Emanuel has created with her collection ‘More Than Just Figleaves.’ Before leaving for Ireland I attended the Retail Design Collective event were I met Eve. I met a lot of designers that night but ‘More Than Just Figleaves’ stood out simply for its sophisticated and timeless pieces. Born in London, England Eve has always loved to travel and experience different cultures and this has helped influence her novel approach to design and fashion. The collection itself is based around a beautiful selection of fabrics from vibrant velvet to classic grey suede’s all sourced globally. Eve has taken classic pieces and has added an exciting flair to them, which will not only turn heads but will remain timeless to women who appreciate comfortable elegance. What I personally love about Eve’s collection is that it caters for all women and can be adjusted to achieve their own preferred style. ‘More Than Just Fig Leaves’ is a collection that will easily evolve in your wardrobe for years to come and is perfect for mix and matching.
I picked two of my favorites for you ladies to view. My first was this beautiful black and white ‘polka dot’ skirt. Midi skirts are something every women should have in her life. I have a variety of my own and what is perfect about this particular skirt is that it focuses on creating the most elegant silhouette no matter what your shape or size. Whether you are going to a wedding or just wanting to rock it with a leather jacket, no matter what the occasion is, you will find every reason to wear this skirt. My favorite part of it is the polka dot pattern, its just fun and flirty.
My second choice was Eve’s stunning grey suede blazer jacket with a gold collar. I fell in love with this jacket the moment I saw it. To begin with, for me there are too many attractive elements to accurately describe this jacket but if I were to sum it up in one word it would be perfection. It really does not matter how you decide to style this piece, what really does matter is, try not to wear it every day ! Judge for yourself. Trust me, the minute you put this beauty on you will never want to take it off. Visit www.morethanjustfigleaves.com or click on pictures for link.Photography by Annis Kamara instagram @a.kamera
