Hi guys, today I’d like to share with you my exclusive interview with Emma Manley – creative director and designer at Manley. Manley is an Irish fashion brand that reflects edgy and contemporary femininity. Delicate structures are juxtaposed with strong contemporary silhouettes, giving way to an aesthetic that is hard and soft, powerful and preciously delicate at once. Quality of fabric and production is at the absolute core of all Manley products. Materials are sourced from the world’s finest luxury houses and innovative manufacturing methods of laser cutting are fused with time-honoured, hand-sewn and embellished detailing. I met Emma Manley at Unfold launch party at Institute of Contemporary Arts during London Fashion Week.

Hi Guys, today I’d like to share with you my interview with an owner and creative director of Mish London – Zara Mishon. Mish London is a cotton nightwear brand recently launched in London. Enjoy! Yukova: Could you tell a bit more about the creation of Mish London? ZM: An idea for Mish London came about at the very end of last year around Christmas where I was faced with my constant struggle of finding new pyjamas. A very long time ago I gave up wearing pyjama sets due to my constant struggle of finding either just some pyjama bottoms that I like in the right pattern, a nice good quality material and a nice print, or the perfect set of pyjamas. Every shop offers many pyjama sets, however this faced me with the dilemma of buying a set of pyjamas just to buy some bottoms that I liked or vice versa which forever…View Post
