From one fashion week to another, the trends are electricity and the fashion on display are always magical. Labo Ethnik Fashion Weekend happened last month in Paris and one brand that showcased their Jewellery collection at the event was MAUKE V Jewelry. The Labo Ethnik Fashion Weekend is hosted in Paris every year and it was created to allow fashion designers from 5 continents the chance of showcasing their designs to the French market. MAUKE V Jewelry had a beautiful display at LEFW and we have all the pictures to prove it.

According to the designer, “My latest collection ‘My Alter-Ego’ tells a story about a woman who loves to show one version of herself but when looking in her eyes, you get to see something special about her… the other version of herself… her Alter Ego, which is asking for a voice. I want our fashion pieces to allow women feel special, unique and elegant.”

The materials the designer used in this collection include wax cord, sterling silver, feathers, leather cords and precious stones. “I think I will always work with these materials, I just love to mix them all up,” says the designer. “During the designing process, I draw my inspiration from female names like Roxy, Dominique and so many others. I then visualize how would a woman who has the name ROXY look like and what kind of clothes and jewellery would she wear. I get inspiration from all sorts of places and for this collection, I also got inspired from a dance I love so much “The Tango”. I love the dance, the moves, and I just imagine a beautiful woman at night looking drop dead gorgeous wearing a beautiful gown, high heels, flawless make-up and off course wearing our Jewellery. She is fierce, she dances the Tango as a pro, all men want to dance with her. She is the centre of the attraction and for me, I feel with our pieces will make the wearer be the main attraction.”
