Paris Ready To Wear Fashion Week

Paris Ready To Wear Fashion Week Sunday, March 4th at 6 pm at Les Invalides. The inspirations for Kristina Fidelskaya’s new Ready-to-Wear collection are multiple. A touch of androgyny in reference to Bowie coming out of the Carlyle Hotel in New York in the 70s. The  nonchalance of Parisian women walking down the Avenue Hoche in the 90’s blended with the timeless and chic simplicity of Elsa Peretti for Halston. With,  of course,  the presence of the signature Kristina Fidelskaya dress coat.

As the wife of the poet Henri de Regnier said about the creations of Mariano Fortuny, ” The dressesusually, have only one future, these dresses already seem to have a past that will add a graceful melancholy”. The collections of Kristina Fidelskaya have this striking particularity with the creations of Mariano Fortuny that is seen evident in her Autumn Winter 18-19 collection, ” Nuovo Inizio”.

A collection with a touch  of Montana, with its oversize shoulders, its precise silhouettes that mark and draw the waist, in a spirit of deconstruction , soft tailoring  and  natural elegance. Geoffrey Beene’s graphic line blends into the fluid movement of the silk fringes of the 1970s. A resolutely elegant wardrobe, easy to wear, but also and above all timeless, punctuated with coated shearling and silk mousseline fil coupe, for a cocooning effect.

Throughout the silhouettes, there is comforting pure cashmere mixed with laminated cotton, dry wool and silk, inspired by the colors and textures of the work of Alberto Burri on the combustion of vinyl, which one imagines taking life on a Stella Tennant.

You also can feel this signature, on the glossy gabardines for an ultra- soft touch, in the ebony black metallic jersey, the matt papery leather and the fluid silk fringes.

Kristina succeeds a mixture of idealized past and assumed modernity, a revisited search for lost  past, for a strong, rebellious  woman who can let go when she decides, and only then, the soft  flaw of  an immaculate white mousseline.

Designer Bags: The Next Big Thing in Wearable Tech

Purses haven’t changed much over time; they’re still basically cloth or leather pouches that hold your things. And that’s pretty boring. It’s long overdo that these accessories do more for you. With the emergence of wearable technology, your designer bag can now incorporate your everyday technology to make your life a little easier. The following are some of the best designer bags and their technological upgrades:

Electronics Compartments

You carry your smartphone with you everywhere, and it easily fits in your purse, but what about your other devices? You carry a laptop, tablet, e-reader, cords, chargers and batteries with you to and from work and when you travel. Unfortunately, your standard bag doesn’t account for these valuable devices. This is why designer bag company Knomo has created purses that keep everything safe and organized. Their bags include a padded laptop pouch, tablet holder and phone slip pocket for your devices. They also have a pen holder, key loop and a deep pocket to keep your other items without having to worry that they might scratch your electronics’ screens or get lost down at the bottom. When your purse feels like a black hole, this is the tech solution for you.

Charging Capabilities

You’re not always going to have access to a wall outlet where you can charge your smartphone, and you don’t always want to carry an external battery that can easily unplug inside your purse. This is where Kate Spade and Everpurse made a great technological partnership. Both parties were unwilling to sacrifice style and design for charging technology. They want to provide women with a seamless way to charge their phones without advertising it to the world or having ugly, flashy wearable technology stamped on the bag. They came up with a charging pouch inside the purse that is unobtrusive on the inside and invisible on the outside. It works with most major phone designs and sizes, such as the durable Samsung Galaxy S8 Active. They want this type of technology to become the standard where you don’t think of it as an add-on, but simply a part of the overall design.

Fashion Statements

Not all tech is meant to blend in; it’s meant to make a statement. VanDerWaals has come up with a line of bags that does just that. These purses are meant to have the ultimate customizable function with the ability to change color on a whim. The outside of the bag looks like a normal leather until you connect it with an app that enables you to change the colors of the outside. This provides you with the ability to change your look from day to night with the press of a button. Or, if you decide that you want to wear a different outfit that doesn’t match your purse, you can easily change the outside color. The bags also have charging stations inside of them to make sure your smartphone battery isn’t drained. With this type of technology, there are limitless options for customization with the help of apps in the future.

Purses no longer have to be sacks that can only carry your things. The major designers are starting to join the future with technology use and integration. With wearable tech advancing rapidly, these accessories are sure to become smarter, more useful and more stylish with each upgrade.

How to Calm Crazy Waves and Unruly Curls International Curl Expert Shares Tips

For those with naturally wavy, curly hair of all coils and textures it may seem like an endless battle to find ways to tame the mane. Some may turn to relaxers, weekly blowouts or extensions. Others just want to master their natural hair in whatever mood it seems to be in. To help girls get a handle on their curls we connected with Maya Smith, founder of The Doux salon and product line of the same name both specializing in making the absolute most of the natural hair you’re born with. When it comes to healthy sculptured, cool looking curls of all types, Maya’s two decades of experience with curls worldwide makes her a true expert. Here she offers tips on how to calm crazy waves and unruly curls.

#1: My naturally wavy hair is flat at the top and then waves start in the middle with tighter curls at the back. HELP!

Genetics determine curl pattern and density. It’s totally normal, in fact, quite common for several different textures to exist on the same head of hair. These inconsistencies can cause the hair to look uneven, and are most apparent once the hair has dried. I created The Doux’s Mousse Def, to help define waves and curls in the less curly areas, and to combat frizz in the areas that are tightly coiled. To balance the look of curly and wavy hair, we recommend using a combo of a mousse on the straighter areas, and then a balm like The Doux’s Bonita Afro Balm Texture Cream for added stretch and control in the tighter areas. The goal here is to keep hair shiny, touchable, and soft. If shrinkage or frizzing remains an issue, don’t underestimate the power of a great haircut. Awesome products combined with a professionally-shaped set of layers is my signature Rx for accentuating curls that vary in texture.

#2: I have curly hair and let it dry naturally. The second it rains, I get frizzy at the roots. I find myself revolving my hairstyle around the weather report. HELP!

Thirsty hair will try to “drink up” moisture in the air if it’s not adequately hydrated.

The key to eliminating frizz due to humidity exposure is to make sure that the hair is thoroughly conditioned before styling products are applied. This exact problem is what inspired me to create a solution in the form of a Fresh Rinse Moisturizing Conditioner, followed by The Light Shine Mist helps to hydrate and stabilize the cuticle, making it less prone to reversion. For added control at the roots, we apply a small amount of Bonita Afro Balm, which is our secret weapon for keeping curly hair from swelling in harsh weather conditions. These products can be found at select Target stores nationwide and at

 #3: I often wear my curly hair slicked back into a tight low bun or ponytail. Will this damage my hair? 

Style in moderation. Traction alopecia is a major epidemic among women with textured hair. This is typically the result of too much tension being applied to scalp for an extended period of time, and usually occurs due to hair styling such as braids, extensions, and tight ponytails. To avoid irreversible thinning of the hair, it’s important to avoid hairstyles that place constant pressure on hair, particularly in the temple and nape areas. Ponytails and “slicked” styles should be taken down at night, and tight accessories, such as headbands or scrunchies should be worn less frequently. 

#4: I wear my naturally kinky hair twisted and braided. How long could I leave this style in and how best to shampoo my hair while in this style?

I recommend shampooing once per week for hair with fine-to-medium density. I urge clients with high-density or extremely long hair, not to exceed more than 10 days without cleansing the hair and scalp. This helps eliminate bacterial growth that causes itching, flaking, and dandruff on the scalp. We use The Doux’s Sucka Free Moisturizing Shampoo to remove product build-up and dead skill cells, and Fresh Rinse Moisturizing Conditioner to soften, hydrate, and balance the hair’s pH. We’ve incorporated Shea Butter and Sea Silk to smooth the hair shaft and aid in moisture retention.

#5: What are some ingredients to avoid that many products for curly hair contain? Why is this damaging? 

Petroleum-based “grease,” as well as products that contain mineral oil may be old-school favorites, but are often the cause of dry hair. Heavy products that aren’t water soluble can coat the hair shaft, disrupting the hair’s natural ability to retain moisture. This dryness may go nearly undetected, because the hair is covered in product, however, the underlying dehydration causes hair to be brittle and stubborn. We recommend cream-based products that shampoo out easily, and allow the hair to “breathe.”About Maya Smith:

Maya Smith is an International Master Stylist and Founder of The Doux Salon and haircare line now available in Target. With over two decades of styling experience Maya dedicated two decades to cracking the code on curl care, maintenance and expert styling. When it comes to caring for one’s natural hair and styling it, according to NaturallyCurly, Maya is among the best there is.

While still in high school, Maya got her hair cutting license and graduated from beauty school. Soon after graduating high school, Maya began following her passion and worked as an assistant for celebrity stylist Tracy Johnson. She learned from Johnson and progressed as a hair stylist for celebrities and entertainers. Years later the military wife would relocate to Germany, where Maya opened up her first salon The HoneyComb, a mecca for textured hair care for women from all over Europe, The UK, and as far as Africa. Maya’s unique system of textured hair styling sparked the development of The DOUX® haircare products, first launched overseas, and distributed throughout Germany, France, Italy, and the Netherlands.

Currently, Maya leads a carefully selected team of stylists at The DOUX® Salon in Macon, Georgia and celebrated the arrival of The DOUX® in select Target stores nationwide. Maya Smith, wife, mom of 5 and savvy business woman is an example not just for women of color but for all women who believe their gifts can impact the world, striving for entrepreneurial endeavors with grace, ease and hustle.

Are My Child’s Teeth Healthy?

As our children begin to grow and get their adult teeth, parents worry if they are getting them at the right age and if they are healthy and normal. There is no exact science to when a child’s permanent teeth will come in, but there are some things that parents may worry about when these teeth begin to grow through. One of these is mamelons, which are small bumps that naturally occur on the teeth. Read on for more information about these and why they are normal.

What Is a Mamelon?

A tooth may have bumps or ridges, which are known as mamelons. They usually form along the edge of a child’s new permanent teeth and they are very common. An uneven or bumpy tooth does not mean a tooth isn’t healthy; mamelons actually help push these new teeth through your child’s gums. They may look different in different children, some looking rougher than others. The most commonly affected teeth are both the upper and lower central and lateral incisors. For more information on mamelons, check out Health Row and why as a parent you should never be concerned.

How Do Mamelons Form?

Three types of cell within the body begin the formation of teeth in the gums. These cells, along with the help of ameloblasts and odontoblasts, form along the edge of the teeth. The teeth are made up of layers of enamel and dentanil, and as these layers form and move forward, this eventually makes a tooth as we know it. When all the cells join together, they form enamel lobes, which are seen as on the edge of the teeth as they come out of the gums.

When Should I Be Concerned?

Mamelons should never be a concern, and although parents may worry when a tooth comes out wobbly or rough, these will eventually straighten themselves. As we continue to grow and eat, these mamelons slowly wear down until they look like normal teeth edges. This may take a shorter or longer time, depending on the roughness of the edges of the teeth and how many teeth were affected, to begin with. If your child is going to get braces, an orthodontist may get rid of mamelons, as it can make the teeth look misaligned, even with the help of braces. This is the only reason they would ever be removed and is simply for aesthetic purposes. It is a simple and pain-free procedure that your child does not need to worry about.

Once mamelons have done their job and their adult teeth have come through, they will begin to naturally wear off over time. Understanding what these are will ensure you do not worry, and if your child asks, you can explain what these rough edges are. The best way to help your child to have healthy teeth is limiting the amount of sugar they eat and drink, promoting good oral hygiene from a young age, and visiting a dentist frequently.

ASDM Beverly Hills Corp was founded by Alexandra Marquez in the early spring months of 1998. It all started with one persistent dilemma that drove Alexandra from one dermatologist to another: her melasma. This type of melasma was not simply superficial, but it also had hormonal aspects that motivated her to change her diet, re-balance the alkaline nature of her body and detoxify her cells and organs from everyday accumulated toxicities.


Despite this drastic change in diet, her melasma persisted. After countless failed prescriptions promising to clear up her melasma, Alexandra was ready to take matters into her own hands. With the help of her innovative husband and his background in chemistry, they concocted a unique lightening formula that addressed the main issues of melasma: hydration, exfoliation, targeting, and prevention.


This amazing miracle cream outperformed all of her prescribed creams by not only targeting the issue, but also renewing and nourishing her skin back to health. In less than 3 months, her face was clearer than ever before, with more life and resilience. As is expected with anything that is actually effective, her friends started to notice. And so was born ASDM Beverly Hills basing its humble roots from one remarkable cream: The Arbutin Skin Lightening Cream. It marked an exciting beginning to an amazing collection of skin care products that would prove to be loved by all.
