Designer Face Mask for the Ball

Monte Carlo Monaco

written by Casandra Tanti

Facemasks are currently a necessary part of life during the coronavirus health crisis and now the fashion world is ensuring that they also become trendy.

In an interview with Monaco Life, local fashion designer Margaret Wisniewska talks about why she decided to incorporate masks into her latest collection.

Monaco Life: Tell us about yourself, where you are from and how you came to be a fashion designer? 

Margaret Wisniewska: I am from Poland and I have felt the need to be creative since the age of seven, always enjoying drawing, painting and sewing. I used to paint Disney characters for kids at school, for example. I always dreamt of becoming an artist and designer.

I also spent time watching Hollywood movies, especially musicals, as music, rhythm, modelling and designing all make me feel alive.

I was never into sciences and preferred the artistic side of life. So, I decided to go to fashion college in my motherland, Poland. Later in life, I worked as a model and studied fashion design at the University of Arts in London. In 2016, I opened a fashion design company in London and just like that, the brand name Margaret Wisniewska was born.

From London, I moved to Monaco where I now reside. In the not-too-distant future, I shall make my entry into the US fashion design market.

I plan on being in Los Angeles California during the last week of January 2021 to meet with new and potential clients.

What is the philosophy behind your creations? 

My philosophy in life is “Fashion is therapy”. Everyone should take care of themselves and have a unique style, because your appearance shows who you are.

Also, a positive mindset, self-love, trust in one’s values, strength, and the guidance of God have all given me experience and inspiration and have developed my philosophy behind my creations.

My principal goal is to fulfil the needs of different women through bespoke designs. I’m inspired when creating my designs through natural flowers and movies.

Has anyone famous worn your dresses?

Celebrities who have worn my fashion designs include Anita Chui who wore my Black Mysterious Dress during the Cannes Film Festival. The name of this dress was inspired by the Mystical Black Magic petunia.

Also, the beautiful Victoria Silvestedt wore my amazing Purple Rose Dress in the 2020 collection at the Hermitage Hotel in Monaco. This creation was inspired by the American romantic comedy film ‘The Purple Rose of Cairo’.

Do you have a favourite dress or design? 

Sure, every fashion design artist has their own preferences. My favourite is ‘The Purple Rose Dress’.

I also love designing wedding dresses and special occasion-clothing. Beauty and elegance impact not only the women wearing these clothes for what is perhaps one of the most exciting moments of their lives, but also the friends and family who share that moment. While designing them, I transport myself into a realm of total happiness and love. One has to love the creation. This is how the world started, did it not?

How have you coped during the coronavirus health crisis? 

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has obviously affected all of us negatively from a business viewpoint. However, it has also taught me how fragile we all are and how nothing should be taken for granted. I do hope that out of this terrible situation we will all come out more mature, attaching relatively more value to what matters: family, friends, the pleasure of a well-done job, and the importance of caring for each other.

How did the coronavirus crisis impact your business? 

Cancelled events have hit the business hard. Confinement is about staying as invisible as possible. Whereas fashion is about making people happy by looking beautiful and seeing beauty in others.

Fashion designer Margaret Wisniewska

You have diversified your business and now sell fashionable face masks. Can you tell us more about them?

When lockdown was enforced, I asked myself: “Why should a mask look sad?”. That is why I decided to design masks that represent a chance at life, not just protection from sickness. The masks I am designing are made of silk. They can be worn after washing at gentle temperature. I can also include a filter inside the mask, upon request.

Has the crisis made you think about diversifying your product line long-term?  

In the long-term, I do not think that the product line has to be altered. Competitive prices for high-quality products are always going to be necessary, for sure. Yet, the product line will be as distinct and unique as it currently is. At the moment, I do not see a need for a change in the values that I consider, if I may say so, eternal.

I shall approach the future as I have lived so far, trusting myself, working hard, trying to inspire others with my designs and getting inspired by what good is in human beings.

How do you think this crisis will affect the fashion industry as a whole? 

The future will need to be viewed, as I hinted earlier, as a return to basic values. At least, I do hope so. Beauty is a basic value and the industry of fashion design will only have to continue doing its job of enlightening our lives with beauty.

What is the future of Margaret Wisniewska designs?

I would like to have more designs and develop more products for women and increase my luxury brand’s visibility all over the world.

And as I love kids, I am in the process of creating a new range for children. This collection will include, for example, unique bags, because it’s one of my preferred design activities.

Where can we find your designs?

My designs are available online through my official website: Margaretwisniewska.com as well as at private events in luxury hotels in Monaco, France, Italy and London.

Milano is hardly trying to be reborn after a strong lockdown . We can’t forget that as the result of the virus we were prisoners at home for 3 months !
And Milano was one of worse cases we had . Residents were blocked by army and police . No one citizen could go out without permit . And was only for food for pharmacy or with ambulance to die of Covid ( more or less) but creativity beauty art and fashion we’re living in our hearts and everybody who is creative worked at home with faith and battling the depression .
And honestly I was surprised how many beautiful collections came out of big sufferings.
I am sharing with you some pictures to encourage the rest of the world to go on !

Mostra del Cinema di Venezia 2020

The thought of what I’ll do in the future is constantly in my mind, at the moment I’m still trying to figure out how to turn my passions, fashion and art, into my future career.

I was introduced to the world of fashion very early in my life, first from my mother as she was working hard for giving me a brilliant future, and then 15 years later, my older brother followed her same steps in achieving his dreams.

And now I’m here at seventeen, just following my heart and I’ve already walked on the red carpet at the Film Festival in Venice, with my other half, Cosimo.

Our love story is very unique and of course romantic; in poor words, we met on Instagram during quarantine, he was staying in London while I was staying in Lake Como. As soon as the quarantine was over he flew to Italy and we met the day before my birthday; we never separated since, and I can define him as my life’s gift.

I was asking myself today what is keeping me from believing where I’ll arrive and if I’ll arrive, and then I said: my family. Without them I couldn’t go anywhere starting with my mother, who motivates me every day to follow my dream and my heart, my father for leaving me the freedom to choose the life I’d like to have, my brother who, although he does not really support me since we haven’t spoken in a while, but who I respect a lot for inspiring me every day to improve myself, and last but not least, my fiancee who since the day we met never stopped believing in me and loving me for the person I am.

Elisa Caterina Egger – my introspection on life as I see it now.

Here are few words about my other half Cosimo and his impact on the world.

Cosimo de’ Medici, born and raised in Milan, is a descendant from the old Florentine family, de’ Medici. Cosimo left Milano at the age of 16 to finish high school in the UK and never left since. He obtained an undergraduate degree in Business Management and a master’s in Cybersecurity both from London universities and took his first job as a cybersecurity consultant, aka hacker. Last year he made a career change and became a “blockchain” engineer, now he is launching his own startup; an online food marketplace that uses blockchain technology to let consumers order and trace their food products directly at the origin, saving up to 50% on retail margins while eating fresher local food. Cosimo is hopeful that his idea will help local economies tackling issues such as food waste and unfair competition while giving consumers an unprecedented amount of information about the food they eat. Cosimo and his fiancee Elisa Caterina Egger recently attended the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival where they made their first appearance together in public.

Dress to feel better

Have you noticed that when you feel blue and down and attention to details just disappear from your focus? Before you know it, the same sweatshirt becomes your favorite to go outside and to sleep in. Then you do not feel like socializing saying it is too much effort to get together -even on Face Time of Zoom or Skype this days. Well this are very much the symptoms of a funk before depression set in and the world is collapsing on you- but just in your emotions and not in reality.

You may want to ask how did you get there before relationships fall apart at home and in business, then attitude will repel even those that love you dearly. If you saw this progress in your friend’s life or your own you probably can tell the steps thy or you took to get to this dare point in giving up on life.

Many, probably too many has turned to the prescription drugs to help elevating their emotions and feelings about life and themselves, but this only put them deeper in a cycle of dependency with mood and energy swings that further hindered normal life.

So, how do we find a way out of feeling not good enough, not successful enough not lovable enough and beautiful and youthful enough?

To find answers to this questions FSHN interviewed Taylor Draper who’s journey id an inspiration to those that want their life back in full beautiful bloom.

FSHN-How long ago and what was the catalyst of your change and realizing where your good life starts?

TD- Two years ago my marriage was falling apart, i did not like my business anymore and my attitude was hopeless in the face anything that demanded change of approach or action from me. The prospect of loosing it all especially my wife became more powerful that my resistance to life, i knew I had to change everything and had to start with me.

FSHN-what were your first steps you took in the new direction of your life?

TD-I took introspection quiz of my feelings and motivation and went to research their origin that told me how to replace them with and who I wanted to be. The study shows that results of feeling good about yourself comes from focused self care and attention to details. I found that putting effort in making my environment beautiful i wanted to be more that i was in this moment. I noticed how much my inner self elevated my satisfaction with present life in all aspects and my attitude invited more positive developments too. Kind of chain reaction of my attitude thoughts life and my expectation of events to good not bad.

FSHN- How did you implement the self-care on daily basis to keep the feel-good momentum going?

TD- I knew that prescription drugs are the answer but escape only so i started to elevate myself by dressing in a suit every day that made me fee confident and good enough to have good life and make good decisions. I took time to groom myself and invest in me as a worthy person of love and success. It worked and still does. My marriage is back to wonderful, my attitude is positive and enthusiastic that what i am now offering to other man can make life worth living for in every aspect of it- love, health, happiness and success. Yes you can have it all!

FSHN- your business now is all about the transition you went through, please tell all more about it?

TD- my previous business was Digital Marketing Corp, that was great until I outgrew it and then was pulling me down. I went through this complete transformation that thought me how to live in the moment and how every step and action we take matter to our happiness level, success level and stability of relationships in the family and outside. That is when Inherent Clothier was born.

I learn that a sloppy attitude delivers a sloppy life. focused caring kind, considered attitude with respect to all creates beautiful life filled with esthetics and harmony. on these principals, my business was build to offer not only suits that make a man feel and look elegant but provide ease of movement that most did not offer. This is super important as comfort to be active and functional will keep that suit on delivering the mood and emotion needed to elevate all aspects of everyday performance and results

FSHN- What do you believe are the key points you offer through the process of ordering the suits and wearing them.

TD-Our clients have very safe space to navigate their emotions when ordering the suits with a friendly cup of espresso, respectful and considered armed with patience tailors. I understand that when they come it is not just about the suit, it is about finding them self in life and the attainment of confidence needed to succeed not by force but by focus and perseverance. They come to go through transformation as i did and we are here to help them with any of possible blocks they may have to walk through life with strength and kindness. Here are some of them:

  1. Ways of investing in self appearance

2. Opening up and readiness for life to lift you up

3. Research tip on how to feel validated

4. How to plan to show up and talk not by paying expense of self empowerment in a wrong way

5. Providing a safe space for man to openup and share teir emotions and their feeling

6. Making sharing of emotions and feelings a normal way of expressing of strength – not weakness and the hiding of them as weakness. This is the new normal for man that can have love and success in all the right places.

FSHN- how did you arrive to this conclusions?

TD- through life experience of what works and what did not work. I learned that connecting internally is the source of empowerment and has focus of direction to take that brings lasting satisfaction and authentic from the heart not contrived from fear. that being self conscious of others opinion takes up too much from creating your own life and it is just an opinion of the moment. Most of them are just projecting anyway as part of self judgment, and probably not even real at all. Being focused on self creating and self responsibility is what creates inner peace, by being and doing your best at all times you cannot go wrong.

FSHN- how do you keep the flow of experience with you interesting to your clients?

TD- Through on going education and seasonal modifications of what we offer in fabrics, colors and cuts. here are highlights of them:

Education: 
Inherent is trying to bring back the education of style, and elegance that has been lost in recent generations. Back in the 1920’s-1960’s it was very important for men to teach their sons how to dress and introduce them to the family tailor. Things like how wide your suit lapels should be, the length of a jacket, and how a suit should fit used to be common knowledge. 
Through our blogs and our in-store events, we’re trying to bring this back. As a brand promoting men’s mental health we want to provide a safe space both online and in-store for men to feel free to speak with one another, ask questions, and learn more about style. We want to curate an environment to encourage men to find their own style and feel confident about themselves. That’s why we created 4 very unique styles to help men identify with one, and open the door for them to make it their own. 


1. Timeless style –https://inherentclothier.com/inherent-styles/timeless-style/
2. Café style – https://inherentclothier.com/inherent-styles/cafe-style/
3. Vintage style – https://inherentclothier.com/inherent-styles/vintage-style/
4. Modernist style –  https://inherentclothier.com/inherent-styles/modernist-style/

FSHN- Do you follow seasonal trends of lifestyle as part of seasonal mood change?

Our quarterly themes: 
Inherent has a unique way to do collections. Instead of releasing multiple pieces per season like fast fashion brands do, we abide by 4 mental health themes per year and design 1 very special suit (and accompaniments) per quarter. This allows us to work with a multitude of non-profits diving further into these themes each quarter. We CO-host a stylized event each quarter with a non-profit to speak on what they specialize in. Each non-profit fits into our theme for the quarter. 


Our themes are as follows:
Spring – New beginning Summer – Togetherness Fall – Loss Winter – Healing 
Instead of doing a campaign around what our clothing will look like per quarter, we instead make our campaigns a mental health awareness campaigns with our call to actions just going to our site. So we can show people we are truly trying to help the cause and if they’re interested in the featured suit in the campaign it will be on the site. But not pushing product first.

A man wearing Gottlich jacket feels like God

Singapore

What a fabulous premise of promise for any women to have, all you would need was a Gotlish jacket to turn your man into everything you want.

But wait this is the man that wants to feel empowered and in the comfort of it, which was the reason for creating the most fantastic fit for man to look and feels like God in it. FSHN Magazine went on to interview the creator of this progressive approach of comfort and elegance for man to embrace every day. We spoke with its creator Harsha Kasey from India as he could not return to Singapore which is his home base to learn the steps it took to have comfort, looks and confidence when wearing Maxim Air jacket. Some of the reasons are here;

  • Made from all-natural materials including sustainably grown Austrian Beech Tree Fabric
  • Magnetic closure is futuristic, super quick & easy to use, you won’t want to use buttons ever again
  • Infused with antibacterial silver ions to keep the wearer odor free all day
  • Custom blended materials are designed to give a smooth and silky feel
  • Naturally porous allowing free airflow at a molecular level
  • Woven, not knitted, which makes it look far more luxurious and feels better on the skin
  • Innovative 360-degree rotational lapels that beautifully conceal the reversible nature
  • Sleeve Monogram – For the first time ever, a blazer has your name permanently embedded on your arm subtly but elegantly for everyone to see
  • Blend fabric wicks moisture/sweat away from the body, keeping the wearer cool & dry resulting in a soothing effect on the skin.

FSHN- How did you get started at finding forms and likes of what you wanted to become of a man’s jacket?

M- I looked around and saw what I felt, other man were not comfortable too in a suit and looked for ways to find comfort by taking it off then loosing the elegance of everyday experience. Most of them were buying expensive jackets to wear with jeans in hope that they will be more allowing to move in them during the day, but same problem was present even in sports jackets- too much form that restricted movement of the arms and back.

I then chose the forms of Dior, Luis Vuitton, Tom Ford, Ferragamo Ralph Lauren, Indichino and EX Suit luxury lines of men wear. Then I put my fascination with Apple product streamline into my vision of a new jacket form. I then started the process by removing shoulder pads but kept the shoulder clean lines that followed the creases of movement body made to assure that shoulders had room to accommodate the muscle mass in action.

FSHN- what was your next step of needs for an elegant yet comfortable jacket to wear all day?

HK- I needed the jacket to breathe for me as the climate can be humid outside and cold from AC inside. That is when the search for fabrics took off and we found 50% higher breathing fabric then cotton is! This a nanotechnology with use of 65% of beech trees pulp that takes 6-8 month to make and 5% elastin with 30% microfibers.

FSHN-Did your previous business travel for Biofuel plant you founded had any impact on the design of the perfect man’s jacket?

HK- Absolutely it id i like to travel light but have different look for meetings as it makes me feel fresh each time I have different look. This lead to reversible form jacket with one side fabric with checkers and the other plain one shade to go with other prints or coloured patterns in shirts and pants. This is a great space saver for overnight travel or multiple in one-day meetings that require a flight with carrying onboard limited size luggage.

FSHN- What do consider the Midas touch of your design ?

HK- Funny that you ask since monogram matters to me and I placed them on both reversible sides to make sure that reminder is there how being elegant matters and that personal appearance matter for being distinct among others, as you individually matter too.

FSHN- Given you have taken so much care into this design how affordable are the jackets?

HK- the quality is one of BeSpoke but the price is accessible to the larger group. I kept the price below normal profit to expose this choice to more than few. I keep at $200 per jacket and i hope we will see now more well-dressed man that feel like gods and women find them alluring by the elegance they see.

ETWho was the person that you made your first wedding gown for?


GL-One of the first wedding gowns I designed almost 30 years ago belonged to a client, who wanted a gown that was advanced for its time. She wanted a sheer illusion gown covered entirely with Swarovski crystals. 
Today it might not sound rare or different, but at that time it was very bold, sexy, and unique. I will never forget that gown. 


ETWas it your decision to create a family business, or was it your son who offered to help, and he organically became part of the business?


GL-I started my business when my youngest son Idan was born. Back then, I didn’t plan or know it would grow to be as big and successful as it is today. It’s not something you can anticipate. My children were very young when I started so it didn’t even occur to me it will one day become a family business. I was simply following my personal dream. 
But as the years went by and the business started growing, we had more and more opportunities coming our way. At one point I think both of my children, Osnat and Idan, realized they could see themselves fitting into my business due to the everyday challenges and adventures we experience. Both of them get to work on the things that interest them the most in the business, whether it’s the Marketing, Sales, and Business development for Idan or the Design, Manufacturing, and Production process for Osnat  At the end of the day, they both feel challenged and work in a place that allows them to live to their full potential.

ETWhat is your source of inspiration? 


GL-I get inspired by women. I think women are God’s greatest creation. There’s nothing we can’t do. We are mothers, wives, girlfriends, business owners, artists, scientists, and so much more. 
We do it all with so much grace and elegance. The women I meet every day are my motivating force. They are what I see in mind when I create, and from them, I draw my inspiration.


ET-What part of the day is your most creative time?


GL-I’m lucky enough to be working in an environment that keeps me creative all day long. It’s not just one part of the day. Sometimes we’ll get a new fabric that will spark something for me. Another time, we’ll get in a new request for a custom piece for a VIP or a celebrity client. The way I see it, if you’re a creative person, it’s just something you have in you, and it’s triggered by different outside forces.

ETYour international locations – the flagship stores. How were they chosen and why?

GL-Choosing a location for a flagship is, above all, a business decision. You want to make sure there’s a market where you open, whether because there is already a demand for your product or because you want to penetrate a certain market in which you identify potential. In our case, we started getting more and more requests and inquiries from brides worldwide. Being located in Israel, technology, and social media has made it possible to interact easily with brides that live abroad. We started realizing people want to try on our products. They are interested in what we have to offer. We quickly recognized our strongest areas and, based on that, decided where we wanted to open. Today it’s not just about having a presence where we are most wanted but also about pushing boundaries and staying ahead of the market. For example, we only recently opened our 1st Flagship in Shanghai being the first Israeli Bridal Brand to have opened a Flagship store in Shanghai. We also just opened our newest flagship in Miami, which is predicted to become one of the largest fashion capitals within the next few years. 

ET-What is your routine to rejuvenate and rest?

GL-I love to travel and try to do it as often as I can. I’m very busy but whenever I travel for work, I will try to squeeze in a few extra days too. I always get inspired by different cultures and I enjoy exploring new places. 

 
ET-What are your favourite foods?


GL-I love eating fish. Cooked or raw, I don’t really mind.

Ava Du Vernay


ET-Do you have a favourite time of the year?


GL-I love Spring. when everything blooms and the weather is just perfect. I always feel more relaxed and calm during this time of the year. 

Ivanka Trump


ET-If you could do anything differently, knowing what you know now, what would it be?

GL-I would tell my younger self to trust my instinct more. It’s so easy to get distracted and carried away by what other people think and say. Although it’s important to listen at the end of the day, you need to trust yourself and remember that it is your instincts that got you to where you are today. 

Ashley Simpson


ETAny advice to other creative designers that are just starting out?

GL-I would advise younger designers who are just starting out to really try and find what makes them special. There are many talented designers out there, but people don’t just buy products. They buy a story and an experience. You need to know who you are and what your strengths are in order to tell it in the most magnificent way possible. Don’t just trust your talent, you also need to know your unique selling point and how to present it to the world.  https://www.galialahav.com/

FINALLY SHOES THAT FIT THE FEET

Los Angeles USA

The truth about our feet is that when we do not wear shoes they get wider because they can. Given we have been at home for many months not wearing pretty shoes and chances are our feet became wider than before staying at home order.

Many states now and countries are opening up and returning to activities outside of our homes and families, so the shoe needs to fit the feet. Here is the way to adopt what you already have to be comfortable wearing with expanded size of your feet without breaking the bank or living with pain at the end of the day.

Formé is the first and only shoe shaper that safely stretches shoes up to half size, eliminating the pain that occurs when the toe box gets tight as the day wears on – awesome for women with different sized feet! Formé is made by women FOR WOMEN and can make every pair of shoes in your closet more comfortable and your feet healthier and happier! You can customize the amount of stretch and they work in any shoes (heels, flats, boots, sandals, sneakers) of any material (leather, fabric, even synthetic). Or use this sleek, lightweight device simply to help shoes keep their shape when you’re not wearing them.  Formé shapers give new life to shoes 1) you love but don’t wear because they never fit quite right, 2) become uncomfortable after just a short time on the feet. Sold on www.formeconfomfort.comamazon.com and www.thegrommet.com

Maureen Stockton, founder of Formé, the first women’s shoe shaper and stretcher, is a Los Angeles native and UCLA graduate with a successful 25+-year track record as an entrepreneur. Her passion for entrepreneurship and invention was sparked during her college years at UCLA, where she founded the Undergraduate Entrepreneurs Association and was recognized by the university’s economics department as “Leader of the Year.” Following her graduation with a dual degree in Business Administration and Political Science, she began her corporate career in commercial real estate, directing marketing and leasing for several premier office buildings in Chicago and Los Angeles.

Stockton continued honing her marketing skills at JAKKS Pacific Inc., the publicly traded toy company. There she created $250MM+ in new revenue through innovative products and new retail merchandising techniques. Subsequently, she created and launched a new category of children’s holiday decorating products under the Disney Princess and Barbie brands. Collectively, these products generated $20MM+ in retail sales and earned her “Vendor of the Year” recognition from Toys “R” Us.

In 2018, after three years of research and development, Stockton
launched the Formé shoe shaper, a consumer product she
conceived to address women’s desire for enhanced shoe comfort
and improved shoe wardrobe maintenance. An epiphany led to the
process: Stockton was dressing for an evening business event and
noticed to her dismay that the “power pumps” she had chosen to
wear was intolerably tight around the toes. At that moment she glanced over at her husband while he removed old-fashioned wooden shoe trees from his shoes asking why he used them. He replied, “my shoes are always comfortable when I slip them on.” She wanted the same for herself, so she ordered some in an attempt to stretch her own shoes, but the device – designed for the heartier leathers used in men’s footwear – had too much force and ruined her shoes. She realized that women needed a shoe shaper of their own. Today, her unique and patented design gives new life to uncomfortable shoes long relegated to the back of the closet, offering customizable stretching options. It also keeps shoes in perfect shape, not only prolonging wear but also increasing resale value.

Beyond her commercial ventures, Stockton also lends her talent and inspiration to several philanthropic causes, serving on the boards of several charities including, St. Anne’s, an LA-based organization that helps vulnerable children and women rebuild their lives. She is also a member of the UCLA Foundation Board, Member of the UCLA Chancellor’s Oversight Committee for UCLA Technology Development, the Getty Museum’s Conservation Institute Council, and Wake Forest University’s Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneur Board of Advisors. Stockton was previously on the boards of the Otis College of Art and Design and the Toy Industry Association.

Stockton and her husband Bryan have four children and reside in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles.
