Hello fashionable people!
Great fashion designers are not appraised only for the trends they create but first and foremost for the detailing of their creations. A designer piece doesn’t have to be “fashionable” per se or scream the latest trend but rather must have unique qualities all its own, whether in the fabrics, the craftsmanship, the sewing, the cuts, etc.
We love to discover and support young rising stars in the fashion industry, and one of our favorite promising young designers by far is Adi Ashur; and let’s just say we are deeply impressed! The multitalented Ms. Ashur expresses her penchant for all fields of design: jewelry, textile, structural design, in her clothes and accessories creating very interesting and unique pieces.
Adi’s latest collection is a theatrical yet lavish fete of upholstery, chiffon, canvas, satin, linen, organdy, and lace, as well as feathers, metal, beads, glass, and cotton weaving.
The first dress Rony wore was a maxi satin flower print dress with sheer lining in the front. The delicate A shape of the dress is flattering on every figure and gives the illusion of a long body and never-ending legs.
Adi designed the print of the dress using graphic design softwares and then dyed the fabric herself.
Rony wore the gown with an oversized canvas flower necklace, rhinestone cuffs and rhinestone adorned briefs (all designed and created by Adi).
Rony felt like a major diva in this red carpet-ready gown!
Vera wore a pink layered skirt sewn out of upholstery, buttoned up blouse, and an 18th century-inspired flower print canvas waist coat with appliqués. The look was completed with a bright pink cuff and pastel colored leggings.
Vera was so fab she could’ve hung out with the likes of Marie Antoinette or in Alice’s wonderland!
Day and Night Out and About
Vera’s second outfit was a layered natural satin orange skirt with a hand knitted cape and print leggings.
The voluminous skirt was perfect for a slim body like Vera’s, it accentuated her waist and hips and made her legs seem even slimmer.
Vera offset the couture look and made it more wearable with a casual gray tank top.
Rony’s second dress was a hand-printed yellow collar mini dress which she wore with hand-printed leggings and a chain and glass necklace that attaches at the back of the dress.
This is the ultimate party dress: it has a sexy waist-cinching cut, it flows when you move and is so unique you don’t need to wear any accessories.
However fun, this dress does not disappoint on the craftsmanship; it is a gorgeous couture creation!
The shoes worn throughout were hand-dyed and printed by Adi.
Clothes like these require a very unique backdrop. And so we visited Tel Aviv’s Florentine neighborhood, a bustling center of design studios, workshops and furniture shops.
The walls of most streets in this neighborhood are adorned with graphic designs, ads, writings and graffiti. This isn’t like any graffiti we’d seen before though, the graphics in this neighborhood are true works of art!
Needless to say we felt like real stars walking down the streets of Florentine in Adi’s amazing creations! Thank you Adi!
What We Wear and fashion designer Adi Ashur
The inspiration for Adi’s latest collection came from old circus posters and the retro graphic quality they had. The posters announced the arrival of a new circus and the feeling of a magical phenomenon filled with lights and colors. Adi wanted to create in her collection the effect of walking placards, prints patterns and textures that become three dimensional, come alive and assume a life of their own. In her prints, cuts and techniques Adi brought the old circus into the 21st century.
