Arm Candy ~ The Cuff Bracelet

September 19, 2013 § Leave a comment

I love big bold cuff bracelets. Maybe because I watched Wonder Woman as a girl… Actually I insisted on watching a Wonder Woman movie with the boys recently, wanting them to have a holistic view of the superhero universe. (Queen Hippolyta, the mother of Wonder Woman, wears fabulous star earrings. But I digress). Needless to say, the cuff is a powerful look that has appealed to warrior women throughout fashion history.

Here is a peak at past cuff bracelets and I have more designs in the works. These are architecturally intricate designs, in matte gold. They range in size from several inches wide to a wee half inch. I would suggest that you match the scale of your cuffs to your shirt sleeves. With a delicate cuff go with a simple sleeve. When wearing an ornate, embellished cuff, or cuffs if you want to go all out, balance them with a strong shoulder or more complicated sleeve. Mix and match, wear on both wrists, and have fun!

Vintage Lucite Statement Necklaces

July 5, 2013 § 1 Comment

Our SoWa booth is awash in bright summer colors, with a new collection of vintage Lucite statement necklaces, fashioned from my huge collection of vintage beads and findings. Lucite makes a wonderful fashion accessory for several reasons. Foremost, Lucite is lightweight, making dramatic statement necklaces easy to wear. The colors still available from vintage stock are exotic and vibrant, making it a fashion accessory to compliment any style or outfit while letting your inner fashionista shine through. Be sure to stop by and try them on!

Many women are afraid of bright colors, because they are worried that the color won’t be flattering or will draw too much attention. However, wearing a bright color that complements your eye color or skin tone can bring a glow to your face and a sparkle to your eyes resulting in a bold look that will make you look and feel terrific.

October 26, 2012 § Leave a comment

It’s hard to believe that this Sunday marks the end of the open market season. We will have our last trunk show at the SoWa Open Market on Sunday, October 28th, 2012. Featuring a costume contest, pumpkin carving and live music, the last SoWa Open Market is entitled “The Market of the Living Dead”. Looking at the pictures from last year, it is a very serious costume contest!

Always on the hunt for rare or out of production vintage textiles and findings, and unique ethnic specialty fabrics, the Manu collection includes silk, local wool, organic cotton, and leather. Several of the fabrics have been hand-dyed or graffiti printed in the studio, a technique I discovered while traveling in Japan and studied after returning home.

I am passionately curious about other cultures, their identities and design traditions, and I love to I travel the world hunting for materials, sketching and photographing. Everything I discover and experience is incorporated into my design process. Hand-selecting unique materials with distinctive details or that have an elegant flair; antique buttons, vintage Lucite handles and elegant trims often find their way into my designs.

These many beguiling finds are playfully combined with sometimes unexpected colors and textures to create unique, timeless designs – blending surprise and romance. Manu designs are inspired by my personal aspiration to feel sexy and confident with a sophistication that is also whimsical and fun.

Hope to see you Sunday!
