Rue 114 Rocks the FFFWeek Runway

I imagine the designer of Rue 114, Serwah Asante, to be this really cool, vibrant, and carefree woman. I’ve never met her, but I just get that vibe when I look at her collection. Even her motto is awesome—”Great style should be available in all sizes because fabulous, fierce, kick-ass women come in all sizes!” I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Of course I looooooved it. Below are some of my favorites pieces. If I ever become a billionaire and get married again, I’m definitely getting him to design…

That’s what happened when Ivory and I were walking around Magic LV last month and came across Lotta Stenson Resort Wear.  You may bave seen some of Lotta’s designs on a few celebrities like Kim Kardashian or Angelina Jolie.
