Inez Designs has just that - pieces that will definitely make an ordinary outfit... extraoridnary! Inez has a collection of whimsical pieces with a sprinkle of edge. I love how her designs are sweet, but not too sweet. Let's get to know Inez a little better.
Meet the artist-Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Inez Tan and I am from Singapore, a land of sunshine! I started this new exciting journey, six months before I quit my job. I’ve always been fascinated by the darker side of beauty and I just love working with metallic colors, chains, vintage fabric and charms. My designs are edgy, modern and unique.
-What is the mission statement behind Inez Designs?
Inez Designs mission statement is to create new fashion and unique experiences for people.
-What inspires you?
I am inspired by so many things! Fashion, films, books, art, music, popular culture, and so forth. It can also be the fluffy clouds in the skies or beautiful and whimsical creatures.
-If you could give one piece of advice about accessories, what would it be?
Be bold and dare to be adventurous! If you are wearing jeans and a simple white top, just funk it up with layers of necklace of a statement piece! It will change your entire look and make your day special.
-If you could design a piece of jewelry for a celebrity, who would it be and why?
I would design for Erin Wasson. She is someone with great style and personality. I love her designs for fashion label RVCA too. It is simple yet with a rock and roll laid-back attitude. I share the same sort of philosophy. I imagine her being the model of my jewelry.
-What is your point of view on creativity and all things hand-made?
Handmade items are special. They are not mass-produced and each piece is different thus adding more character and personality. I feel that there is extra love and care involved in something handmade. I love the imperfections of things handmade.
Inez was also kind enough to design a something just for me. It's simple, a little dark, and totally wearable. I absolutely love it. Thank you Inez for being so sweet and generous! I'll definitely be wearing it a lot this summer. :)
Inez is also offering one of my readers the chance to win one of her lovely designs.
