AELKEMI X SAMANTHA WILLS

 

DESIGN STUDIO NYC

 

I'M AT A POINT IN MY LIFE WHERE I ONLY WANT TO HANG AROUND GOOD, DOWN TO EARTH, PASISONATE, CARING, KIND PEOPLE. AND AT THIS POINT IN MY CAREER, I AM ALSO LOOKING TO WORK & AFFLIATE WITH PEOPLE WITH THOSE SAME TRAITS AND VALUES. SO FROM THE MOMENT I MET ALVIN FERNANDEZ

OF AE'LKEMI; I KNEW I WANTED TO WORK WITH HIM. 

 

ALVIN IS THE FOUNDER & DESIGNER OF AE'LKEMI, AND HAS VERY GRACIOUSLY ALLOWED ME TO WEAR HIS GORGEOUS GOWNS FOR A FEW YEARS NOW. SOME OF MY MANY FAVORITES ARE THIS INCREDIBLE PIECE OF ART I WORE IN SYDNEY, OR THIS EQUALLY INCREDIBLE ONE I WORE IN NYC.

 

WHEN THE AE'LKEMI TEAM APPROACHED ME ABOUT DESIGNING A COLLECTION OF JEWELS FOR THEIR MERCEDES BENZ AUSTRALIAN FASHION WEEK SHOW, IT WAS WITHOUT HESTITATION I ACCEPTED. ALVIN'S DRESSES ARE EQUAL PART SHOW STOPPER, PERFECTLY FORM FITTING & COMFORTABLY WEARABLE, & I FEEL THE AE'LKEMI BRAND & GOWNS ARE INCREDIBLY EMPOWERING TO WOMEN. ALVIN SENT ME OVER THE CREATIVE VISION FOR HIS SHOW.... 'VENETIAN GOTHIC, A MESHING OF ORNAMENTATION & DIRECTION INTO A TAILORED LOOK; SPORTSLUX WITH A COUTURE FINISH (A SIGNATURE OF THE BRAND) AND MY FAVORITE LINE OF THE BRIEF; 'THE WOMAN IS STRONG & POWERFUL, WITH A FU*K OFF ATTITUDE AND A

HINT OF DANGER... BUT IS ALWAYS ELEGANT.'

 

I GOT HER. I WANTED TO BE HER. I WANTED TO CREATE GOLDEN ARMOUR FOR HER. 

 

SO WITH THE AE'LKEMI WOMAN IN MIND, I CREATED A MUSE TO CRAFT FOR; SHE WAS A GODDESS... REPRESENATIVE OF THE SAGITTARIUS SKETCH THAT KELLY SMITH HAD ILLUSTRATED FOR OUR ZODIAC LINE (PICTURE ON THE LEFT OF THE FIRST PHOTOGRAPH BELOW) - SHE WAS STRONG & POWERFUL, INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL & ELEGANT & WORE HER JEWELLERY IN EXCESS LIKE A GLAMOUR ARMOUR. SHE WAS CONFIDENT & ETHERAL. THE JEWELLERY HAD GOTHIC ELEMENTS & DIDN'T STRAY TOO FAR FROM A GOLD PALETTE, HINTS OF ONYX & CLEAR CRYSTAL ADDED THE GLAMOUR FINISHES TO THE ANTIQUE & BURNISHED GOLD METALS, CREATING THE UNDERLAY OF THE PIECES. IT WAS ABOUT EXCESS, MORE IS

MORE & SHE WOULD WEAR IT EFFORTLESSLY.

 

ALVIN'S SHOW WILL BE APRIL 10TH IN SYDNEY. SADLY I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE THERE, BUT WILL BE FOLLOWING THEIR INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT FOR ALL BEHIND THE SCENES &

RUNWAY SHOTS THROUGH FASHION WEEK. 

 

THANK YOU ALVIN & BESPOKE PR FOR INVITING ME TO BE PART OF THIS COLABORATION, AND FOR ALWAYS ALLOWING ME TO WEAR YOUR BEAUTIFUL CREATIONS. 

 

ROCK ON, GOLD DUST WOMAN. - SWx
