WCFW 2018 – Betsuni Nomi

2018 fall/winter Clothing line

I am so happy to announce that our first collection for Betsuni will be debuting at Western Canada Fashion Week on September 27, 2018! 

This is Ames’ & my first original collection of Japanese Fashion inspired clothing collection consisting of a caped kimono, unique yukata, and colorful hakama style pants.

the story

After we finished a few costume commission pieces, Ames and I designed two Japanese Fashion inspired tops – the Inked wrapped crop top & the Butterfly Fanfare Yukata.

We popped them up on our website and poof! They were quickly purchased! 

So, we decided to create a whole collection themed around something interesting and launch it at a fashion week to better gauge the interest for our work. That’s how Betsuni Nomi was born!

This collection has 12 outifts themed around beverages. We have teamed up with Spirit of the Wench to come up with drink recipes to match each outfit!

If you want to see the pieces before they debut at Fashion Week in Edmonton, visit here: Betsuni.

DREAMS COME TRUE
When I first stepped onto the fashion scene, all I ever wanted was to become a spokesmodel. So you can just imagine how speechless and stunned I was when Aman Dhalay asked me to be Javeda’s brand ambassador.

the story

by Aman Dhalay

Javeda is so special to me. I wanted to have someone representing Javeda that understands and lives fashion. I wanted someone who cherishes the roots of fashion from conception of the idea to the actual production of the outfit and loves that whole process as much as I do.

I first met Elle at one of my casting calls and chose her as one of my models for a runway show at a charity event.

I will never forget this: After that runway show, I asked her, “Elle why are you still here?” She was free to go home and I would have been fine with that, but she said, “I just don’t like people leaving a mess and extra work for the designer. We should all stay back and make sure everything is set back into place, which is the professional way to do things.”

That told me Elle is more than just a model. She doesn’t let all the glamour of fashion go to her head. At the end of day, she appreciates all the hard work that goes into an event and does what she can to add to that success, even if she doesn’t have to.

She’s amazing at what she does – her talents are quite extensive, which makes her an Everything Girl.

I feel that Elle is very humble, hardworking, and driven with a lot of passion. She has a real understanding of fashion – she lives it everyday. She knows what the fashion industry is all about and how to carry it professionally.

She designs. She creates. She puts in the time and effort to do everything professionally, and she does it just for the passion of it.

Elle is one of a kind. I’m really honored and proud to have her be part of Javeda, and excited for the journey we have ahead of us.

I absolutely love running amok in costume. It’s just one of the childhood games that I will never outgrow. Eventually, I started receiving commissions for costumes from other cosplaying fans.

At first, the idea of hand engraving sentimental items really made me anxious. If I made a mistake, this beautiful item would be scarred forever! 

I learned to take extra precautions to avoid such mishaps and to develop a confidence in my skills that helped calm my shaking hands.
