Being an aspiring fashion blogger I am always on social media from Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat. One day while following up on one of my favorite fashion bloggers Hanna Beth, I found a designer brand by the name Kora Rae. As I scrolled on the official Instagram page I fell in love with the designs and collections. Within a few minutes, I received a request to follow back the designer and a personal message that opened so many doors for me. After speaking to Rachel Turzer and her publicist directly, I was honored to agree to purchase items from her recent Fall/Winter 2014 and Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Rachel Turzer is a designer who has been apart of New York Fashion Week and has had her work published in magazines from Lucky, InStyle, People and many more. To have celebrities like Alessandra Ambrosio (Victoria Secret/Super Model), JLo and my style icon, Negin Mirsalehi (a dutch fashion blogger) worn Kora Rae along with my name is so honoring. In making of the brand, fabrics are picked strictly from European silks and leathers- handmade to fit the models body to the specific curve and detail. Rachel is a humbled, surreal women who’s purpose is to express her vision of beauty through her fearless powerful designs. As a local Tampa photographer shot these photos of me in at Curtis Hixon Park (Tampa, Florida) I felt the fearless power of a goddess emerged from head to toe. Confidence is the most strongest trait every women should have and wearing Kora Rae any women would feel as elegant.
“The beauty I see in the world, I want to reflect in my clothes.”
