 I am so in love with my iamVibes white cosmic leotard!

It's unusual for me to wear anything white AND like it! I have a problem with white you see. I think it makes my skin look a funny colour because I'm so pale, white looks better on people with a tan right? Also it makes my hair look a funny yellow / greeny colour due to all the bodge dye jobs haha but most of my natural blonde has pretty much grown out now though so it should be okay

:)

Anyway back to the leotard... I'm so glad I got a size M as it's quite small fitting so a size S wouldn't have fit at all! It's so comfy and the material is quite thick, so you can't see through it despite it being tight and white which is always a good thing! I also love the cute little short sleeves it has on it, most of my other leotards are sleeveless so it makes a lovely change!

The denim vest I'm wearing is from Topshop and I've only worn it once before which is such a waste! I think it goes great with the white, for a sping / summery look, I just need to find some shorts / trousers to wear with it for when I go out, any suggestions?

:)

I'm going to stop talking now so you can get to the good bit, the exclusive interview I did with the director of iamVibes Tom Hardless!

:D

 

 

What's the story behind Iamvibes and how did it all begin?

"It all began with a thought that came to me in meditation that I had to put the ancient symbol of the 'Hamsa' out into the consciousness more so than it already was but with my own twist, thus incorporating sacred geometry into the symbol. I actually worked below a t-shirt printing store so I made one up with those guys then a bunch of friends liked the design and said I should make more. So I did and so my journey of pushing the Hamsa into the great consciousness began. I invested my own money I worked for into 25 tshirts, took my time thinking how I want to portray the brand, took some pictures of my beautiful partner, at the time, in my t-shirt and slowly started selling the t-shirts. From here I just took my time building up the rep of the brand and the designs. I have now engaged into a wonderful creative flow of fashion. I'm constantly learning about design and the wonderful and horrible people you can work with. Its a great journey so far and I'm very happy I've taken a thought from my mind and manifested it in a physical 'thing'."

What are your passions?

 

"My main passion is Meditation and connecting with my inner being. This really feeds my creative passions for performing and writing Music as well as designing iamVibes garments. All in all I guess I have a passion to make people happy and bring some light into the World through creativity. Im also very passionate about the new Daft Punk track - Get Lucky - Its so intense."

What's your favourite piece from your collection and why?


"Thats a tricky one, I love all of the pieces. If I had to choose it would be the SHADOW STUDDED JACKET because it's hand made in the UK and I've got to take another design from my mind and completely create something straight from my mind. I also think it looks pretty slick and fun."

Where do you get your inspiration from?


"I get inspiration from every angle and aspect of life. We are given so much to take in and I make sure I am a sponge at all times taking things in but making sure to filter out/ repel any bad vibes. Some people I know have been big inspirations to me in how they dress and even how they have treated me. As humans we react in interesting ways when we fall in love or have our hearts and minds broken or opened and for me this all comes to a positive point where I will create something from the experience."

Where do you live and has it had an impact of your perception of fashion?


"OH totally! I bounce between city life in London and suburban life out in the country. London is very on the pulse with fashion and everything and everyone is constantly changing in different parts of the city. I don't really find myself stuck in one part of the city, I spend a good amount of time all around it and I guess I take what I like from each part of the city and let it effect me creatively.

Perception is a funny thing because something could be going on in London which is 'hot' but over on the other side of the planet it can be totally different.

I try and look on the bigger scale beyond where I live because different parts of the world are going through different seasons and I want to be able to connect with everything all at once and not chain myself down to one scene or movement. I hope to move around the world working on iamVibes and finding "bases" in different countries so I know whats going on all over the world not just in London. Its important to me to experience and learn of different ways of life/fashion and creativity from all over the world."

Is there anywhere in the world / a city who's fashion you admire?


"LA , London and New York all have great fashion sense in general. Im scoping out Australia at the moment and they seem to have some pretty wild Vibes flying around but it's cool."

Do you have a favourite fashion icon or celebrity who's style you admire?

 

"I dont so much have a Fashion icon because I may see a stranger who will inspire me to wear something or shape a look / design. I've always been intrigued by mister Kanye West, he has a cool aesthetic. Karl Lagerfeld always looks slick. Infact im loving the current DAFT PUNK look that St Laurent have hooked up. Very cool."

How would you describe your personal style?

 

"Hmmm.... I wear a lot of Black on Black even though I am a very positive person I feel it helps me look slightly smarter because I have long messy hair. Im going to venture out for summer though, might wear some blue or white one day."
