Fine Like A Feather

March 18, 2012 § Leave a comment

So just last year Mia Ayesa and I came up with this brilliant idea: feather hair extensions. Yeah I know it’s not an original idea and its been really popular in the States and Europe but we couldn’t seem to find someone who does it here. So we were like: “hey! what if we bring feather hair extensions here!” Thus The Feather Shop was born!

Our first collection is gonna be launch on the 23rd of March which falls on a Friday. We have six designs to choose from. Each design is carefully crafted by picking the right color and textures.

All our feather hair extensions last for about a month, depending on how you maintain it. Feathers are like your hair, if you take care of it, it’ll look pretty. Yes, you could wash, blow dry and style your feathers!

My first ever post and more importantly, my first ever blog! 🙂

So, I guess introductions first? My name is Alexandra Pierson. I live in Manila where I am currently a DJ (the club kind, not the radio kind), clothing and accessory designer, style addict and a really big dreamer. I’ve always wanted to start a blog but never really pushed myself to do so. And another big factor for my blog creation delay is because I wasn’t able to replace my stolen Mac book. Not until last week! Yes!! I got a new laptop. Yay! 🙂 So, what else? Well, I have a very eclectic style. I don’t only stick to one. My style depends on my mood. Sometimes I feel bad ass and want to go with graphic tees, acid washed jeans and a leather (faux, mind you) jacket. On other days I feel all girly and I take the summer dress and ballet flats road. So you won’t expect to see me with one style only. I used to design jewelry five years ago and actually consigned it with a big company (cannot say which one) but then I got burnt out and kind of took a break from that. However, I’m missing the whole jewelry design process and I’m getting back in to it. I bought new materials and I’m gonna start next week!! 🙂

Today was the day I’ve been looking forward to for about two weeks already. The first day for my Design and Constructing Clothes class. And it was awesome!! 🙂 Our teacher, Aan Pineda is sooo amazing. I couldn’t believe how detailed and fast his lessons were. I mean we tackled a lot of topics in just four hours! But I must admit towards the last thirty minutes of class I was kind of zoning out. Was still so tired from my gig the night before. I’m so psyched with our class project. We each have to design and construct a shift dress! I cannot tell you enough how excited I am. We started on our mood boards (will post a picture probably tomorrow!) and I went for a  gold and copper and maroon and burgundy color scheme. I’m really thinking I’ll stick to this color scheme cause it seems so regal and classy.
