Mayzani accessories are the perfect choice to compliment your summer uniform. Clutchettes – keep your outfit simple (think model off-duty chic: white tank, a cuffed boyfriend jean/harem pant, sickening five inch heel) and let your accessories steal all the attention! Keep reading below to read Mazel’s inspiration for her summer 2010 collection:
The inspiration behind my Summer Collection derived from my love of LACE. I have always loved lace and have avidly collected different types of lace over the years. The very first pair of earrings I ever created were of LACE and Japanese Seed Beads. In the past I would make these little earrings for friends and family, but I never created a whole collection. One day, I laid everything out, all the lace I have collected as well as new ones I came upon, and instantly I was cutting and sewing and beading. The final results were 15 pieces, some revived from the “random pieces” I made for friends and family, and others completely new. I don’t ever sit down and design. I blame this on the fact that I can’t sit still to save my life.
“I call my pieces accidents, because they are literally almost always created completely different from what I first envisioned”.
I find something very exhilirating about creating blindly. Because everything in the world always ends up becoming “business” or “by the book”, such as creating and selling your art, I decided a long time ago that when it comes to my art, I will create in mystery to keep my mind challenged since the business part has already been written down for me. In closing, my collection was inspired by chaos. Imagine a floor covered in beautiful lace…. you have no choice but to organize the chaos and create something beautiful.
