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.

“Your arms are showing? I thought you were Muslim. Lol. I’m so confused.” Welp. You’ll stay confused and then blocked. I’m angsty today because well it has been a throw-the-whole-day-in-the-trash kinda day. But, I have time in between anxiety to address confusion. Yes. I put my life on the net for all to critique. That’s cool. Do I wish I could go back to anonymity? Sometimes. Unfortunately folks think that since I’m behind the screen they can assume who I am through only a part of what I share. That’s not fair. Internet people are real people in real life. I share snippets of my life because it helps me cope. Secondly, because it helps other ppl cope. To share things they’ve never shared before or just get it off their chest or feel a little less alone in world. Honestly, I’m not arguing with or appeasing anyone about how I choose to live as a Muslim. I’m past that part of my life where I had to constantly defend my Muslim-ness. What I choose to say. Wear or not. Is between my creator and I. I don’t want unsolicited advice on what I should be doing. I’m sorry but the sleeves or lack of sleeves on a shirt isn’t enough to question my faith. Anyone’s faith! If you’d like to follow a sleeve wearing Hijabi then feel free. Lastly, 👏🏾I’m 👏🏾not👏🏾the👏🏾poster👏🏾child👏🏾for👏🏾all👏🏾muslim👏🏾women. Stop putting me on a pedestal. I’m struggling like the next person. Shit, I’m constantly questioning who I am. I don’t have all the answers. All I can do is try and live my best life. *Adjusts hijab* *Tongue pop* Has anyone ever shoved their beliefs or culture down your throat? How do you handle it? And, do you feel the need to be a poster child for your group? Any race and religion can answer. Let’s chat.
