Reporting from New York Fashion Week 2017

Melange Mode friend artist & designer Sarah Holland, shares her NYFW Spring 2017 experience with us!

Wearing a Reverie rain jacket and eclipse top

My first stop was to Milk Studios to check out Haley Elsaesser's debut New York collection, in conjunction with Hasbro's My Little Pony. Called Déjà Moon, it definitely lived up to it’s fairy tale concept! The collection was filled with bright hues and sparkling embellishments. 

Outside, I had to ask about these gorgeous hand painted pieces by fashion designer Sofistafunk

Amazing street style is the sign of a great show! Two fabulous ladies walking in, Sam & Cailli Beckerman of @beckermanblog

Following the show, I attended the Women Veterans Rock event at Distill No. 7  featuring for Love Art Fashion, Marolli, Hiche and M No.7.  It was a wonderful evening of fashion for a great cause, supporting Women Veterans.

Loved meeting the founder and creator of LFA Bernard Aidan, hearing about the creative process behind this unique collection was so inspiring!

A key signature style from the LFA collection is embellished leather and denim moto jackets. A must for year round style!

 I had to try on this beautiful embroidered capelet by Hiche, it's a perfect match for a metallic copper Reverie Dress!

Ending the evening on a high note, I stopped by the Aruna Seth NYFW event with Code WWD

This Layered textured piece by Katharine Kidd is to die for! The transparent material is so edgy and sweet with embroidery.

Who says bowties are just a men's accessoryLove these pieces by Christopher Chaun.

If you haven't heard about Sunshine Dreaming's Sun Pillow, you've been missing out! I launched my new business in December, just in time for the holiday season. The Sun Pillow is the fun and fashionable portable pillow for the beach and outdoors (and even indoors!)

Made in LA, the Sun Pillow is highly portable and made from sustainable white oak and premium cotton fabrics. Sun Pillows currently come in 7 different styles, from luxe metallics to vibrant playful patterns. 

On Feb. 19th, Sunshine Dreaming and The Springs in downtown LA teamed up for an afternoon of fun! The Springs is the go-to spot for clean living in the bustling DTLA arts district. With a natural cafe, yoga studio, and wellness center, the Springs is a can't miss spot!

As part of the popup shop, we setup an installation to try a Sun Pillow, complete with a teepee and grass, perfect for relaxation!

More happy customers! A rainbow and head in the clouds. 

The retail shelf - Sun Pillows are available for purchase either in person at the Springs at the MDDS boutique or online at

The installation area is right outside the yoga room at the Springs, try one out! The installation will be there until late March.

We love these artisan lighting pieces by Czech design manufacturer Brokis.
The Knot collection combines the exquisite hand blown technique Brokis is known for with contrasting natural fiber materials.

Knot Pendants are offered in different glossy transparent and opaline glass finishes.
Experimental design by London-based Giles Miller Studio
‘The Gregorian Series’ installation exhibits framed precision-engineered sculptures that consist of twelve pieces using the materials and light to show the twelve months of the year through each sculpture.
Each piece was created by using several metal components reflecting their surroundings.
It's all about the details with these gold, silver and rose gold sculptures.

A very special thank you to Sophia, Brokis, and the Giles Miller Studio for providing these beautiful images + info for these unique pieces.
