Detroit Does NYFW Series

Sep 15, 2015

Eastern Market

Detroit, MI

 

Eden: My name is Eden and I’m a life + style blogger, actress, filmmaker and new mompreneur. I blog under Chic in the Tropics, which I’ve had since 2009.; and I have a small but full-service video production company called Reel Clever Films.  I’m pretty old in the blogosphere! When I’m not busy shooting something for fun or my business, some of the things I love doing is to check out a movie, studying new techniques about my craft, and of course, shopping!

 

Q: What was the inspiration/story behind your look?

 

Eden: I’ve never been a gal who owns a lot of long, flowy dresses, and yet, I zeroed in on this gorgeous electric pleat goddess dress. I wanted to make it very “me” and street-ready by adding the usual suspects from my closet – a black fedora, my go-to leather jacket, and laceup flats. That’s me trying to go out of my usual comfort zone.

Q: How would you define your style?

 

Eden: Contemporary, parts edgy, parts minimal, parts androgynous. A lot of black and white separates. I like to keep things basic with a bit of a kick. 

 

Q: Who are your style icons?

 

Eden: Kate Lanphear, Alexander Wang, Erin Wasson

 

Q: Where do you like to shop?

 

Eden: As a new mom with a budget, I’m definitely a huge fan of bargains! There is no awesome bargain I will refuse, haha. I love shopping at Saks Off 5th, Barney’s Warehouse, and my absolute favorite: Nordstrom Rack! Ebay has always been pretty good to me lately when it comes to awesome fashion deals.

Q: Have you ever been to NYFW, if so when and what was your fave part?

 

Eden: I have never been, but it’s definitely in my personal bucket list! Even if I don’t get personally invited to a show (I’m still dreaming for the day, haha) , just to be able to see the NYFW experience for myself and see New York so alive and filled with fashionistas is awesome in itself.

 

Q: Who is your fave designer?

 

Eden: It’s very hard for me to pinpoint one particular designer, but my top five includes Alexander Wang, Rick Owens, Rad Hourani, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, and my best friend, Philippine fashion designer, Yves Camingue. 

 

Q: Whose show are you most looking forward to this year?

 

Eden: Aside from some of the designers mentioned above, Viktor and Rolf! You can always trust them to do something unexpected and jawdropping.

Q: What do you like about NYFW more, the runway shows or the street style and why?

 

Eden: I would say a little bit of both. You can always trust the shows to usher in the key trends for next year; and as a personal style blogger, the street style aspect is so perfect to take sartorial cues from. 

 

Q: Links to any social media pages?

 

Eden: Aside from my blog, you can also connect with me through Instagram here and my facebook group page here.

My wondrous trip to Mexico City via @aeromexico is coming to an end. Although, I wish I could stay longer, I feel reenergized and ready to tackle life. It’s been a long time since I’ve truly had some time like this and I’m super grateful, even if it was for a few days. I’m gonna drop a whole vlog about my trip that I hope y’all will enjoy. I was just thinking how I wouldn’t be able to have an opportunity like this if I hadn’t decided years ago that I would stop being afraid and just do that shit anyway, despite being in a tense relationship and community. If I had listened to people tell me I was too fat to model, if I had listened to people tell me that I couldn’t tell my story because I’d make Muslims look bad and embarrass myself, had I listened to the media who constantly perpetuates how large bodies, how Black bodies, how Muslim bodies and other marginalized folks ain’t deserving, had I listened and allowed myself to succumb to fear and my own self-abuse, I would not be here right now. You may not like me. Like what I do. Or what I say or how I do things. But, for one thing you will respect the grind. You will respect me not giving af how dumb I look. Or how I had to claw my way to still be standing. Nothing I have has come easy, but still I dance and enjoy life with all of my jiggles and baggage. So when you feel like giving up, life is too hard and too much, I want you to remember this and keep going anyway. What have you struggled with to overcome that we have not seen you endure or struggle with? What advice would you give someone who is in the thick of a struggle? Let’s chat. *P.S. How y’all like my Peggy Bundy/Fran Drescher outfit? 😂😂 #psootd #plussize #instafashion #bodypositive #bgki #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #pizzasisters4lyfe #blackgirlswhoblog #fashion #londonblogger #psfashion #blackgirlmagic #muslimgirl #bodyconfidence #plusmodel #feminist #wiw #intersectionalfeminism #turbanista #bodydysmorphia #fatacceptance #newyorkblogger #selflove #streetstyle #goldenconfidence #dancevideos #animalprint #travelblogger #mexicocity
