Chico de Barrio Brand, which was actually established in 2003 in Spain, Jamal’s outlook on fashion is not that of a typical designer, he strives to promote human rights as well as protection for the environment through his line by the establishment of an artisanal association, which has worked for generations, manufacturing garments using only natural and organic materials.

Antonia Nae is a graduate fashion designer, who won the award for ‘Lipsy the Best Red Carpet Dress’ at Graduate Fashion Week 2016 in London, and became one of the best five graduates from UK.
Since then, she collaborated with many stylists and designers, and participated in different shows, such as British Fashion Volume II and The Clothes Show. Also, she is going to present in February her collection with Fashions Finest and Oxford Fashion Studio during London Fashion Week 2017.
During her studies, she did her work experience at Allison Rodger and Jenny Packham, where she worked in teams for creating beautiful designs for different celebrities, including Oprah and the Duchess of Cambridge. After winning the award in 2016, Lipsy offered her an internship in their Design team.
The collection she is going to present at Fashions Finest is inspired by the texture and the beauty of the wild nature from Danube Delta. It is a Ready-to-Wear collection with Avant-Garde accents. The outfits are all black with fabric manipulation details to show the texture of the nature, sparkly lace, beaded fabrics and leather. All the looks are different, but they relate to each other, showing her love, passion and dedication for fashion design and craftsmanship.
Each- and- every new year we wow to do better and take on new challenges, promising ourselves that this year we are going to do better than the year before. But come mid-year, and we start to take stock of all our set out intentions to move forward and out of our comfort zones. We realise that we have not achieved half of it. So, the question remains, how do we go about achieving our set out intentions? Personally, I believe that the key to that is Confidence.
Read on to discover my personal tips on achieving New Year Confidence.
Take care of yourself
It is amazing how much of a difference a new hair colour or smelling beautiful and glowing skin can have on your self-confidence. Looking good and feeling great is a fantastic boost to your self-image. So, take the time to take care of yourself indulge in those small things like a new lipstick or trying a new eye-make look. It will turn your mood around from feeling glum and grey to bright and sparkling.
You cannot look all pretty and not be dressed nicely, if you dress nicely, you’ll feel good about yourself. A nice dress or a pants suits will make you feel successful, presentable and ready to tackle whatever the day hold and brings. Invest in good quality items and build your capsule wardrobe with pieces that will make you feel confident when going for that all important meeting or interview.
Re-brand your self-image
Our mental picture of who and what we are, so often determines our confidence. If we feel good or negative about ourselves, we reflect that outwards. In the way, we carry ourselves and how we allow others to interact with us. Let 2017 be the year where you make the choice to re-brand your self-image. Make small changes, like having a mantra, my favourite is, I AM BEAUTIFUL, I AM WORTHY, I AM CONFIDENT, I AM CAPABLE, I AM NOT LESS THEN OR BETTER THEN THOSE AROUND ME, repeat this every morning in front of the mirror and with time you will start to carry yourself in that manner and not allow yourself and others to make you feel small and worthless. Remember, who you want to be and how others perceive you, is your choice. So, choose to show you true worth.
This is an important part of re-branding your self- image and building self-confidence. Positive thinking can open- up new opportunities. It is all about the energy you bring into a situation, so if your energy is positive you will be more open to feel good about yourself and to become the best version of yourself.
A smile lights up your face and will instantly make you feel better and it will help you to be kinder to yourself and those around you. A small but beautiful thing that can have a wonderful chain reaction. Your smile is one of your best assets so use it well this new year.
Good posture will make you feel taller and more confident. If you stand tall and walk with confidence into any room people around you will take notice. Stand straight and pull your shoulders back and stand tall and walk talk and be proud and have confident in yourself, your beauty and that gorgeous smile.
Have a wonderful 2017 and may you achieve at least one of your set out intentions for this new year.
It's been a few years now since I've been a contributor to Fashions Finest blog; and I've been privileged to share my views on a blog platform that is growing and constantly evolving. As a designer (Keji Victoria), I chose to write alongside my craft and share personal views of the industry? Why? While this may be a pretty simple equation, giving that fashion bloggers are poised to also be stylists and trend and design experts, it's good to reflect on real perks of fashion blogging....

1. You are connected to what is trendy and relevant
When it comes to writing you really need to stay relevant. I learnt this the hard way- spending so much time digging in to find material, but not always completing the last research stage- is it relevant to my viewers? Years of writing has definitely helped me appreciate the value of of the viewers' interests and needs. It makes writing worthwhile!
2. You are encouraged to share unique opinions and views
While staying relevant is crucial, my blog page isn't the only one that exists to be relevant, and neither is yours. People are always looking for something unique and refreshingly different, it's a battle of the fittest (so to say). I remember some years back, I shared a post on my favorite ways of using a wrap to cover the hair (as seen on Solange); I remember my house mate at the time came to me saying how much she enjoyed reading my FF post and how she sat down attempting the differenthe wrap styles. At that point, I realised that people are definitely interested in what I have to say- useful, relevant, yet unique. Although simple, my research on head wrap styles was a unique compilation.
3. You appreciate the work and accomplishments of others
Since being part of the FF blog family, I have had several opportunities to attend Fashion shows; participate in media and blogger events; and the likes! That is definitely a perk of working with a great platform. The journey has put me in the company of people whose views and styles are as different to my norm, as they could be. When you are set the task of covering a show or collection, you move from simply admiring the work to appreciating the hard work behind it.
4. You step out of your own comfort zone and work
The parallel work of designing (Keji Victoria) and writing constantly keeps me on the edge of my seat: designing keeps you locked in your own world and writing brings you out of it- not to talk of mastering the skills that go behind blog-style writing. I'm never short of inspiration!
Happy new year fashion bugs!
