Greetings from New York City, well actually Queens, My name is KIKA. I study Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, I find a lot of inspiration for my work not just in Fashion because that's not what life is about...I also look into art, interior design, video games and whatever a prentious, bitter, wannabe from France would choose to look to make herself seem more interesting as an individual.

The best town in France, Vittel
Vittel Park and hotel
The famous oversized chess board
It urks me when people think the only region of France to visit is in Paris. Its like they envision that city to be romantic like the photo shopped pictures you see on Pinterest on a daily basis. As a French fry, it upsets me that other areas of France aren't glamourized in films or pop-culture reference. And quite frankly, it's annoyance that people know nothing about the region of Vittel, France. For the past 18 years I have visited France during my summer break to see my lovely family and get away from the city. I find Vittel to be a very whimsical and delightful place to visit to get lost in. The whole town is flourished with thick trees and flowers which remind me of those little towns you see in Disney films. Every one is friendly and inviting. The restaurants and boulangeries are what bring in the tourists. The shopping centers consist of selling knick knacks, postcards and trinkets that bring me back to being a child again. The park features their grand hotel that was previously known as Club Med with amenities like cart-bike rides to roam with multiple friends around the park, a golf course, equestrian racing and a spa: The luxurious spa is essential for experiencing water falls and water treatments provided by the Vittel water. For anyone looking for peace and tranquility, Vittel is definitely the town to check out. I hope to go back there around Christmas time to see the town powdered in snow and experience the holiday spirit with my family.
I wish I could go back. I love this place so much.
Here is a photo of my Aunt and sister standing in front of the gorgeous hotel.
Hello, Kittens! My name is KIKA. I am 21 years old. A recent graduate from the Fashion Institute of Technology. And I have officially become a Free Lance Fashion Designer. Like many designers, I see the world through various perspectives and I am greatly inspired by many things. Other than the trends and the history of fashion, I fancy video games, art and cutesy stuff that brings me back to a nostalgic era where looking through rose colored glasses was my motto of life. I am working on developing my brand to make it as close to how I want it to be in my dreams.
I design for women who aren’t afraid of their style or personality. A woman should be proud of where she came from, but who she is now. I am obsessed with color and subtlety and minimalism is just not me. Maybe for others, but I believe you can walk into a room and bring attention to others with out saying a thing. The social butterfly, the dinner party enthusiast and museum aficionado are the kind of women I am inspired by.
