\"AUDRA\"
AUDRA

Audra Noyes, owner and creative director of luxury fashion line AUDRA, delivered the figurative \u201cCheckmate!\u201d as she recently took home the championship in the Pinned! Designer Chess Challenge. As a member of the Saint Louis Fashion Incubator inaugural class, this Delaware native competed against other incubator designers to create two chess-inspired looks: something practical and something a touch more creative. Ladue News caught up with the winning designer to find out more.

You recently won the Pinned! Designer Chess Challenge. Congratulations! What did you create and why?

In the Pinned! challenge, I created two pieces, one being the first uniform for chess and the second being an avant-garde, more fashion-forward piece inspired by the game of chess. For me personally, I chose to create a jacket as my uniform piece that was the primary focus \u2026 My avant-garde piece was a tea-length gown inspired by the colliding of the rook and the bishop, which in essence was the formation of the queen.

How is your experience with the Saint Louis Fashion Incubator going?

The incubator has been great. I love working amongst the other designers as well as the incubator team. It\u2019s a great community where we\u2019re really supporting and learning from each other. St. Louis is definitely a big shift, but I\u2019m loving it thus far.

Has your work changed or grown since you began working with the group?

Specifically working in St. Louis within the incubator has given the exposure to interact with my client or my consumer on a daily basis through the retail opportunity of the space, and I think that has really informed my design. It has helped me learn what fit, fabrics and silhouettes really speak to my clients, what price points work for them, and I think that has helped me grow not only as a designer but as a businesswoman.

What other projects are you working on right now?

Right now, I just finished up shooting my spring/summer 2018 collection, which will debut next week [Sept. 6] at New York Fashion Week. I\u2019m working right now on the presentation that I\u2019m doing and finishing up the collection for market as well.

I\u2019m also working on the production of fall \u201917 so it just shipped to stores, so I\u2019m working on now getting it launched on the e-commerce and getting it back to St. Louis to sell. It\u2019s kind of two collections in tangency \u2013 they overlap. It keeps it exciting, for sure.

How do you describe your overall sense of design?

The AUDRA mission was to be an advocate for females in the arts and to redefine the standard of beauty through ethical, luxury clothing. The aesthetic is very much using the ease and comfort of American sportswear with the allure of European couture. You\u2019ll see the training from SCAD [Georgia\u2019s Savannah College of Art and Design, from which she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree] fused with my apprenticeships and time in Paris in each piece, and it\u2019s all composed of European materials, and it\u2019s all developed and sewn in New York City.

Picture this: glamorous women in gilded caftan dresses enjoying poolside cocktails amid a Philippine sunset. That vintage image from the 1960s in the Philippines inspired Mestiza New York\u2019s fashion line, debuting this month at Neiman Marcus in Plaza Frontenac.

Mestiza New York, co-founded by St. Louis native Louisa Rechter and native Filipino Alessandra Perez-Rubio, offers high-fashion dresses, jumpsuits and evening gowns showcasing stunning architectural silhouettes and surprising ornate details, from bejeweled embellishments to ivory tassels, all on layers of handwoven silk cocoon fabric from the Philippines.

Rechter will appear Sept. 21 at Plaza Frontenac\u2019s Neiman Marcus to introduce the brand\u2019s new fall line, which is a nod to the co-founders\u2019 roots in the Philippines, as Perez-Rubio\u2019s family is from the capital of Manila, and Rechter\u2019s mother was born in the Midwest but grew up in the country\u2019s Cebu province.

\u201cMestiza means a woman of mixed ancestry,\u201d Rechter says, noting that the business name celebrates the pair\u2019s shared Philippine-American heritage. Rechter and Perez-Rubio met while both were attending Washington University in St. Louis from 2005 to 2009 and quickly bonded over their shared heritage and love for fashion. But it wasn\u2019t until 2013 that they began working together. Their paths crossed again in New York City, where they both had moved after college. \u201cWe were commiserating over the fact that many of our friends had these black-tie weddings coming up, and we both had nothing to wear,\u201d Rechter recalls. \u201cAll the gowns we loved were $5,000 or more, or there were [replica] designer gowns of questionable quality.\u201d

When the pair realized this need was going unfilled on the market, it was a lightbulb moment, Rechter says, and Perez-Rubio asked her if she wanted to work together to start a business offering unique, quality and accessible dresses. \u201c[Perez-Rubio] showed me some of her design sketches, and I loved them, so we started conceptualizing our brand,\u201d Rechter says. \u201cAfter our [day] jobs, we would meet in [New York City\u2019s] Garment District, where we found a company to manufacture our first samples.\u201d

\"Alessandra

By 2015, the fashionable duo officially launched Mestiza New York, a two-woman show: Rechter serves as CEO and tackles business operations, while Perez-Rubio serves as creative director and handles creative design. The brand has released three collections, with its latest, fall line coming to the local Neiman Marcus for the first time.

The line features the signature best-selling Shimmy Shimmy Tassel Dress that \u201cput the brand on the map,\u201d Rechter says. Also among the collection are a matador, metallic-thread-embroidered, Philippines-inspired terno-sleeve midi shift dress and a Maria Luisa beaded yolk dress with a chunky embellishment at the neckline, modeled after a couture gown that Perez-Rubio inherited from her grandmother, who was a well-known philanthropist and fashionista in the Philippines. And exclusive to Neiman Marcus is the brand\u2019s flamingo strappy bell dress, showcasing red silk twill and beaded and feathered flamingos at the waistline. The line also includes looks that can take women from day to night, such as a crisscross strappy runway jumpsuit with wide legs and a beaded eagle-wing embellishment at the bust. \u201cYou can put a blazer over it and wear it to the office or doll it up for a wedding or date night,\u201d Rechter says.

Many pieces in the collection, including the popular Shimmy Shimmy Tassel Dress, are made of silk cocoon fabric handwoven by the Habi Philippine Textile Council, a group of female textile weavers in the Philippines. Women congregate to handweave under open-air huts, and each tribe has its own aesthetic, Rechter explains. \u201cWe want to give back to the women who so much inspire the brand,\u201d she notes. \u201cBy supporting them, we\u2019re giving them a steady paycheck and preserving a centuries-old craft.\u201d

Mestiza New York has caught the eye of supermodels and celebrities, from Chrissy Teigen to Ashley Graham, and award-winning actresses, from Kate Walsh to America Ferrera. Rechter says it\u2019s a \u201cserious pinch-me moment\u201d each time a star struts down the red carpet or appears in the pages of Vogue or Harper\u2019s Bazaar wearing one of the brand\u2019s creations. \u201cI\u2019m blown away by it,\u201d she says.

And much still looms on the horizon for the fashion house. Its spring 2018 line is set to hit stores in February. \u201cI\u2019m so happy working in the fashion industry,\u201d Rechter says. \u201cThere have been highs and lows, but it\u2019s so much fun to see your accomplishments, and nothing compares to all the care and support we\u2019ve been getting for our brand. It\u2019s a dream come true.\u201d

If you\u2019re not a makeup professional or beauty guru, chances are you\u2019re making mistakes in your daily or monthly beauty routine. To recognize five such common mistakes and learn how to fix them, read on, ladies!

Mistake 1: Using expired makeup. Always check the makeup or skin care products you\u2019re using to see when they expire. Normally, the back of a product shows a little makeup-related icon with a number on it. That number indicates the number of months the product will last. If you\u2019re using, say, a face lotion that shows a 6 but you\u2019ve owned it for two years, toss it and replace it!

Mistake 2: Washing your hair every day. Many women believe they need to wash their hair daily, but that\u2019s not the case. Washing hair each day strips natural oils from it and makes it dry, which can cause damage. Instead, try washing your hair just three times weekly, and use dry shampoo otherwise during the week to freshen your locks without washing them.

Mistake 3: Wearing the wrong foundation color. Everyone\u2019s noticed the woman with a face darker or lighter than her neck \u2013 and the rest of her. Wearing the wrong foundation color constitutes a very common beauty mistake that can be easily avoided. When choosing a foundation color, seek professional help. A pro will test several colors to see which works best with your complexion \u2013 and also should match the foundation color to your neck rather than to your face.

Mistake 4: Not washing your makeup brushes. Makeup brushes don\u2019t get washed nearly as often as they should. When you\u2019re using them or makeup sponges on your face daily, wash them at least monthly. Bacteria form on such cosmetic tools, and then use spreads them all over the face. Make sure this doesn\u2019t happen to you!

Mistake 5: Skipping heat protectant. To accompany the use of hot tools on wet hair, using a heat protectant after showering remains vital. Hair can take only so much heat before becoming damaged, so always protect yours by running a heat protectant through your locks prior to blow-drying, straightening or curling.

If you\u2019re making any of the five beauty mistakes mentioned here, ladies, there\u2019s no better time than now to start correcting them to benefit your skin, hair and well-being!

Finding a dress that complements both weekend brunch and the workday whirl borders on impossible, but this Milly number does just that. The ruffle details on the sleeves lend it weekend whimsy, while the tailored stripe nicely suits a day at the office.

sheraton clayton plaza hotel st louis

From a little girl or boy\u2019s dream to the big day, a wedding can be one of life\u2019s most treasured experiences. Sheraton Clayton Plaza Hotel St. Louis plucks that childhood dream out of each bride or groom\u2019s head and brings it to life in spectacular fashion. From big and small, rustic chic to the height of glamour, it all comes down to listening to your dreams.

There are many ways to customize the event space, Sarah Johnson, director of sales and marketing, says. \u201cWe can add a cocktail lounge in the back of the room or add tables with fun treats for attendees. We find ways to reshape the room you\u2019re in to fit the type of event you wish to have.\u201d

She and her experienced team add inventive flair to each event, helping to shape a couple\u2019s idea into reality. \u201cWe stay on the cutting edge of trends in the wedding industry,\u201d Sarah Johnson notes. \u201cWe take a consultative approach to really bring out what\u2019s special to each couple.\u201d

Deedy Johnson, event coordinator, works directly with the bride and groom to understand their big picture. \u201cOne couple wanted a different way to serve snacks, so we created a doughnut wall,\u201d she explains. \u201cA lot of people love the Cardinals theme, so we\u2019ve done sliders and fries, and we even have a hot dog stand. We do whatever we can to achieve a couple\u2019s vision.\u201d

The venue itself appeals to guests who want to experience St. Louis. \u201cThere are a million things to do in Clayton,\u201d Deedy Johnson shares. \u201cWe\u2019re within walking distance of 50 different restaurants, and a minute away from Shaw Park and other parks, which are the perfect places for photo opportunities. We are located a block and a half away from the Metro, so out-of-town guests don\u2019t have to drive downtown to all the St. Louis destinations they\u2019ll want to check out, like City Museum and the Arch.\u201d

From beginning to end, she and her team take care of the details, so couples can spend more time celebrating with loved ones. \u201cWe take care of everything on the hotel end, so mom and dad or aunts and uncles don\u2019t have to,\u201d Deedy Johnson promises. \u201cAnything we can do upfront, from putting out the guestbook at the beginning to taking care of the hotel room for later that night.\u201d The Sheraton does whatever is possible to make weddings out of the things from which dreams are constructed, so that each couple can focus on their happily ever after.

When it comes to luxuries, Rolex watches almost always top the list. The iconic timepieces are both symbolic and practical and are meant to be worn for a lifetime \u2013 but until only a few years ago, Rolex wearers looking for a new, custom band outside of the company\u2019s official offerings were stuck with less-than-ideal options that left an unsightly gap near the case around the watch face.

What if an aftermarket strap could connect directly to the watchcase with a curved end? It would look like it truly belonged with the accessory, as it would extend from the case and remove the undesirable gap. It would give Rolex owners a way to customize their high-priced wristwatches.

That was the idea of St. Louisan and Everest Horology Products founder and CEO Michael DiMartini. The concept \u2013 now known as Everest\u2019s patented end-link technology \u2013 came to him in 2012 on the evening of his eldest son\u2019s birth. Once the family returned home from the hospital, he reached out to friend David Barnes, who was instantly sold on the idea. Barnes, now president of Everest, provided the seed money, and the two got started.

Fast-forward five years, and Everest bands are popular with Rolex wearers worldwide, with watch experts like A Blog to Watch saying: \u201cWithout question, Everest leather straps bring a new wearing experience for Rolex wearers. Everest leather straps possess the design, fit and integrity that Rolex wearers expect, and at a price point that is less than what a factory original strap costs.\u201d

\"EH5BLK_EH5WHT.jpg\"

Everest\u2019s Swiss-made products are available for more than a dozen Rolex products and will expand to Tudor watches in the near future. Products range from rubber to alligator-embossed leather, with a plethora of styles and colors available in a multitude of materials.

\u201cBecause our watch bands have reached a worldwide market, it is difficult to note a seasonal piece,\u201d says Barnes of the company\u2019s all-season items. \u201cThe overall favorite, hands down, is our Everest Black Rubber Band.\u201d

Perhaps this is due to the weight. Bands by Everest are lighter than original Rolex bands, which are famously heavy. The Curved End Rubber and Curved End Rubber With Tang Buckle come in four colors and six colors respectively and are ultraviolet-, water-, chemical- and dust-resistant, all while remaining lightweight.

\u201cWe cannot wait to expand to new collections with straps for new models with new materials,\u201d DiMartini says.

Outside of comfort, Rolex owners might turn to Everest to replace a broken or missing band, update an outdated band or simply enjoy more stylish options. Everest bands are made to be changed easily with a watch tool kit. The brand even has instructional videos on YouTube walking customers through the process so they can swap from a daytime look to an evening band in a matter of moments.

\u201cEverest has really offered Rolex owners the opportunity to customize your Rolex in a comfortable and fashionable manner,\u201d DiMartini says.

However, if that makes you nervous, the bands can be swapped at an authorized dealer, as well. St. Louisans looking for Everest products can head to the company\u2019s website (everestbands.com) or visit Clockmaster in Brentwood, Timekeepers in Clayton or Huffords Jewelry in Frontenac.

\u201cIt\u2019s mind-blowing to me some days how Everest has grown exponentially worldwide,\u201d DiMartini says. But the line still is a home-grown success. \u201cI really just appreciate the experience of being able to interact with the watch community, particularly in St. Louis.\u201d

Next on the horizon for Everest is the launch of its sister brand: MONTA Swiss-made watches. Two tool watches are currently in the line: Oceanking, a midcentury-inspired dive watch, and Triumph, a timepiece with myriad options for personalization. MONTA will officially launch at its open-to-the-public event on Thursday, Sept. 14, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the West County Missouri Athletic Club.

At The Tiny Hedgehog, there aren\u2019t baby boy clothes and baby girl clothes \u2013 there are just clothes, to be worn by any baby or toddler. Instead of deciding who can wear what, this line of locally designed and sewn kiddo clothing focuses on other aspects, like comfort and aesthetics.

\u201cThe Tiny Hedgehog is a collection of inclusive, vibrant and comfortable clothing for babies and toddlers,\u201d says founder and designer Merlin Whitman. \u201cI started The Tiny Hedgehog in 2016 after my daughter was born. Each garment is lovingly handcrafted in St. Louis so your little one will always look and feel [his or her] best.\u201d

One look at The Tiny Hedgehog shows a variety of colors from a mature palette that somehow work together perfectly in children\u2019s clothing: robin\u2019s-egg blue and mustard yellow are big players with little pops of cherry red, charcoal gray, dusty pink and more. You won\u2019t see pastel blue and pink, in-your-face neons or the cutesy catchphrases often printed on children\u2019s apparel. Instead, the clothing gives off a slight 1970s vibe while still feeling timeless. Even with its range of muted hues and plethora of patterns, all the items match nicely together. Mainstay features like a contrast trim, sleeve or waistband unify the collection.

It turns out that selecting these patterns is the longest part of the process for Whitman. \u201cI start my design process by looking at fabric samples and deciding on a particular color mood for the season,\u201d she says. \u201cI tend to mull over colors and patterns for a good while before finally committing on my fabric palette. At the same time, I\u2019m also thinking about the upcoming season and sketching some clothing designs.\u201d

These shapes and fabrics may be great in adult minds, but do children \u2013 the ones actually wearing the pieces \u2013 like them? Turns out, all The Tiny Hedgehog pieces are approved by one youngster. \u201cOnce the fabric and designs are decided on, I\u2019ll create a mockup of the design and let my daughter run around the house in them to see how she likes it,\u201d Whitman says. \u201cIf it [earns] her seal of approval, I\u2019ll start production. I cut and sew all of the clothing in my home studio in Old North St. Louis.\u201d

The Tiny Hedgehog\u2019s current collection includes five shapes in a few pattern options: pants, shorts, tunics, and short- and long-sleeved T-shirts in sizes newborn to 5T. Prices range from $25 to $43, and the patterns include everything from woodland scenes to overlapping kittens to tiny sparrows.

\u201cI think vibrant and joyful are good words to describe The Tiny Hedgehog,\u201d Whitman says of her colorful collection. \u201cI want to make clothes that are inclusive and comfortable to wear for every child. I don\u2019t think we need to stick to just pink and blue for our kiddos.\u201d

Whitman credits her daughter as her biggest inspiration. Whitman, a lifelong seamstress, has been making clothing for years, but she transitioned into these petite versions when her daughter was born. \u201cBaby clothes are nice because they don\u2019t take as long as making adult pieces, so I could whip up a pair of pants between naps,\u201d she says. \u201cIt helped me feel more myself again and gave me a creative outlet that I really needed in the months after her birth.\u201d

On Friday, Sept. 1, Whitman says The Tiny Hedgehog will release its first fall mini line, which will include four pieces. Then, later this year will come a fall/winter collection. Local shoppers can be on the lookout for The Tiny Hedgehog at autumn craft fairs and festivals, including the South Grand Fall Festival on Sept. 16 and The Strange Folk Festival from Sept. 22 to 24 at a location to be announced. Those looking to find Whitman\u2019s creations outside of those events can shop online (thetinyhedgehog.com) or at boutiques Amber Sky in Maplewood and Lass & Laddie in Kirkwood.

\u201cThere\u2019s always a bit of self-doubt when you create something new, but people have really responded well to The Tiny Hedgehog \u2013 not only in how they look but also how they feel,\u201d Whitman says. \u201cI use a soft cotton jersey for all the clothing, so everyone is always commenting on how snuggly it feels. I\u2019ve also had a lot of adults say, \u2018I wish you made them in my size!\u2019 Someday, maybe!\u201d

Although we all likely have that one friend who seemingly never ages, most of us enjoy no such luck. Over time, our skin gradually changes, with wrinkles and fine lines often becoming intrusive.

As a result, ladies, accompany changing skin with a change in routine, ensuring concealed imperfections. The following five-step routine should promote an ageless look \u2013 or at least the impression of one.

Prepare properly. Before you apply any makeup, properly moisturize. Following a skin care routine in addition to your day-to-day makeup routine will keep your skin both looking and feeling better.

Choose a foundation with sun protection factor (SPF). Select a foundation that not only flaunts a flawless finish but also benefits your skin\u2019s solar protection. A foundation with SPF should shield your skin from sunburn and related woes.

Treat concealer judiciously. Concealer can settle into fine lines and wrinkles under your peepers, making your skin look overly \u201cmature\u201d (old, that is). If you suffer from dark under-eye circles, add a peach- or salmon-colored under-eye corrector before dabbing concealer atop it.

Use matte eye shadows on the lids. Shimmer shadows tend to accentuate wrinkles, so opt instead for matte shades in eye makeup.

Apply lipstick with a satin finish. To make lips look fuller and smoother, apply a lipstick with a satin finish. Avoid matte or liquid lipsticks.

Because aging is natural, don\u2019t fret when you feel the need to change your makeup routine. No matter how old you may be, pay attention to your skin and take any steps necessary to ensure it looks lovely at each stage of life!
