Introducing Susan Bender NYC

We are excited to announce the first of our new Boutique designers: Susan Bender New York! Having always had a deep passion for fashion and design, Susan gained retail management experience at Bloomingdale’s flagship Manhattan store upon graduating from Tufts University. She then continued to earn a MBA from NYU Stern School of Business before working in brand management. Susan then decided to follow her passion for fashion and with the help of a small samples making facility in New York City she created her first collection of leather tops and jackets. From encouragement from her friends to produce pieces for them and their friends, Susan’s collection has evolved to stylish wearable classics. The silhouettes of soft leather complement the female body creating stylish wardrobe classics. All garments are manufactured by hand in New York City, where Susan is able to oversee production. By observing the cutters and sewers and maintaining first-hand communication, Susan is able to understand how to make improvements to her designs. The Susan Bender NYC collection is sold privately by appointment at the company’s showroom on Madison Avenue in New York.

Needless to say we are thrilled to be stocking this beautiful cropped Susan Bender Jacket that literally goes with EVERYTHING! The super soft leather is complemented by the smooth silk lining and the figure accentuating fit. It is the lost cardigan and the black jacket rolled into one. From dresses and skirts to jeans and leggings, you will find this jacket to be an incredible addition to your outfit and wardrobe. This beautiful Susan Bender Jacket is available now on our new Earth Couture Boutique! Happy Shopping! xxx

Oscars 2016

We're still buzzing from all the Oscars glamour, but have finally managed to narrow down our favourites. Gowns worn by the beauties Margot Robbie, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron, Naomi Watts and Brie Larson were stunning, but our top picks must go to Alicia Vikander, Julianne Moore and Olivia Munn. There was also that something about Lady Gaga's white strapless jumpsuit made dress with a train. Which did you love? We'd like to hear from you!

Last, but certainly not least, how great was Leonardo DiCaprio finally winning an Oscar and giving a speech addressing climate-change?! We all need to work towards a better future xxx
