Fashion News: Interview with Swavor Clothing ( swavorclothing.com )

August 31, 2012

Christofer Brito

Istarblog.com is so happy and fortunate to hold an interview to the one great new clothing brand called Swavor Clothing ( swavorclothing.com ). Check my interview below for you to know what’s stuff they’re still cooking for us all..

  1. Tell me about your self?

My name is Christofer Brito, I am the Artistic Director at Swavor clothing and the creator behind the  classic swavor logo.  It is always been an honor to be placed in such an important role in the brand. Especially because I consider myself a very big fan of what we do. I live, breath, and dream everything and anything that has to do with fashion. I am currently attending my 2nd year at the fashion school ESMOD RENNES, I’m proudly one of their first Cape Verdean students. I’m working towards obtaining my degree in fashion design and pattern making.

2. Where you guys based? Country and City please.

We are based in the USA the D.M.V (DC,MARYLAND,VIRGINIA) to be  exact. The brand itself was born and is based in the Maryland area in the city of Rockville.

3. Tell me about your company and the brand ( Please explain all in here, like when & where do you guys started, who with you with? and how many of you in the company( staff and team) also, who is the brain or the CEO of the company?

 Swavor stands for shiek,Wealthy, arrogant,victourious,original,retail.  The concept behind the brand was created by the c.e.o  of  swavor, Shek Tarawallie in the year 2010. At the time I had met shek in a community college in Maryland. The brand was still just an idea. Luckily I had the skills to give the brand the tools it needed to advance. I was quick to realize that Shek was a marketing genius who only needed the right people around him. Swavor started off with exactly 191 dollars and two shirts that would be later known as “the classics”. From there we started to build a buzz around our hometown in the dmv area.erviewThe swavor staff members consist of Brandon Gatling (a.k.a Concrete Jungle) who is our media director, Shek Tarawallie who is the owner and the brain of the company, myself, and of course our representatives all over the world. 

4. Your brand is mainly on? Example – Street fashion wear, high-end fashion and so on. And please do explain why have you chosen to be on that field, why not to the other line?

The whole idea behind swavor is what makes it so interesting. We want to bring street wear and haut couture colliding together. We hope to bring to the table something new and fresh that no one has ever seen before. With the help of Art and history we don’t only make a simple collection or just smack designs on a t shirt. We are able to give a history lesson on the great conquerors of the world, through the art work they have left behind. Ultimately we hope to create our own genre in the fashion world.

5. What is your edge, you think ( the company) to the other same brands?

We do things very differently; we never follow what the next trend is going to be, or what people are going to be wearing this season. At swavor we like to take our own path and choose for ourselves what we think the next trend should be. In return our customers and our loyal supporters know whatever product they purchase from swavor no one else will have. We never copy or imitate anything that a brand has already done, in that term you can say we are pretty ignorant.

4. Your brand looks so dope, where do you guys get all of your inspirations/ideas on these creations or pieces you’ve had made? ( and please tell me on what certain design of tee or any pieces you’d really liked and in what thing/s it inspired with) Please gimme the item link for this one, or better yet, send me over the photo/s

When we begin a collection, shek will always be the one to find the perfect inspiration. It usually comes from a certain painter, a certain time in history, or even the mood of the world. One of the best examples, is the “death of socrates”  t shirt which depicts the moment when Socrates was forced to drink the mortal poison.  This was a painting done by Jacques Louis-David who is best known as Napoleons Bonaparte’s personal painter. This was an idea that Shek came up with to incorporate art with fashion. It was one of our most talked about piece of the season, and a best seller. It was a genius idea that really set the stage for swavor. Another best seller and a piece that will always be known as a swavor classic, is “America by Christofer Brito”.Its a true collectors piece that is very limited and a real collector’s edition which makes it  very difficult to find. I designed the piece myself to simply pay tribute to swavors love for its country. I was fairly surprised by the positive reaction it received after its release. I can honestly say I wasn’t expecting it.

5. Do you guys have lookbook.nu account? if so, what it is?

No unfortunately we do not have a lookbook account yet, but It does look tempting. I will have to bring it up at the next meeting I have with shek.

6. Do your company get featured already? ( in the magazines or any form of media? if so, where it is? do you have any link on it? or at least a photo/s? if so, could you also send me over the photos or news paper scan photos if possible.

Yes, we have been featured on the Blueprint magazines next issue which should be in stores mid September 2012. Shek had the chance to conduct  an interview with them about the brand, which I do recommend reading if you like to know a little more. We are also featured in ESMOD Paris blog who wrote an article about myself and the brand. It is in French but you can run it through google translate in whatever language u require. We are expecting to be in a couple other fashion magazines and blogs very soon.

7. Do you guys have online shop/s and nearby / real stores? if so, what is the link and the where its located ( full address please)

We don’t have a store of our own just yet, but we do have our own online store. It can be reached at swavorclothing.com. A second official seller of swavor online is karmaloop, the link is; www.karmaloop.com/kazbah/brands/Swavor. If you ever find yourself in the Washington D.C. area we are in a sneaker boutique called kickk spott. Their address is  1436 WISCONSIN AVE NW; WASHINGTON, DC, 20007.

8. I’ve noticed most of your items are these men’s wear? (if I dont mistaken) Also, do you guys had plans to widen your market to girls fashion wears too?

We try to make our products unisex, so that both females and males are able to wear our cloth, and still be able to look great. Yes we are definitely looking into making cloth strictly for females. A swavor couture line is in the works at the moment as a possibility for the future. 

9. I know most of my readers would like to know your social media accounts and where they’ll usually find you, could you please list down all of your accounts? like twitter, facebook fan page, email, phone number/s and more..

Absolutely you can reach us on facebook.com/swavor, twitter.com/swavorclothing ,tumblr.com/blog/swavorclothing. Feel free to contact us.

10. Do you ship internationally?

Yes we ship internationally; our team makes sure that the transactions are always safe and secure.

11. Lastly, what do you want to say to all of my readers? ( you can put and tell everything here, like, your current promos, new collections and all.

I just hope you guys are able to enjoy swavor and hopefully enjoy our next collection, which I think will be one of our most original yet to come.  We are appreciative for the support and thank you for taking the time to read this great interview. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I have.

Though the blog Istarblog.com is mainly into these dope men’s fashion and celebrities, I still occasionally include some of the chic pieces which girls would like to know about. Yeah, today, I suppose I’m pleased to tell y’all about these awesome bags that I found recently which are definitely hip too.  As soon as girls discovered how awesome the designs and how hip these bags are, I am sure that they will be hooked. I am talking about these Melie Bianco hand bags. One of the samples was this bag in the top photo. What do you think about it? Dope or not? I know you’ll definitely like it as much my sister’s do.

Another good thing about the brand is they really have reasonable prices on each of their bags. And as I’ve checked it, they are ranging about 50-300 bucks on each designer’s bag they have. Still good though, right? You may check the other info about the brand on their main site. Just search it over Google for more details. Also, I’ve heard that even celebs these days are having their Melie Bianco hand bag because the brand name is getting more and more popular. Personally, I really suggest a girl to have this brand of bag than to the usual bags out in the market these days.

Alright, that’s it for now and I hope you may keep on visiting the blog for more fashion updates. Also, I will post on the other fashion brand that you must have to check about.

Must-Have Scarves for the Perfect Wardrobe

August 16, 2012

Gone are the days when scarves are just mainly a winter staple. Yes, this fashion accessory often worn during the cold months in order to warm the neck  had reinvented itself and can now be worn all year round. A scarf can add color into a plain and boring outfit. Hollywood celebrities who jetset to different countries also wear a scarf as part of their airport fashion. Aside from the comfort it brings, it certainly has become a statement piece for fashionistas.

 

In order to complete the look of a perfect wardrobe, having just one scarf is not enough. If you are into fashion, invest on the following must-have scarves as they would come handy in the long run:

 

The Silk Scarf

 

This lightweight material is the perfect accessory for the summer season. Go for a silk scarf with fun and colorful designs that can easily brighten up an entire outfit. Some women even use a silk scarf to accessorize over sized handbags by tying them on the handle. Play with the different options available and learn a few tricks on how to wear them.

 

The Cashmere Scarf

 

It is the scarf for the winter season. Cashmere is very soft and smooth yet it provides warmth. Now some people are too lazy to dress up during winter time and often opt for an all black wardrobe: coat, top and boots. Add color to this ensemble by wearing a bright pink cashmere scarf. Wear it around the neck and have the ends dangle a little bit at the front or back. You can find videos on how to wear it in different ways.

 

The Printed Scarf

 

Printed scarves are for fashion forward individuals who love a little mix and match. Most women stay away from scarves with animal prints because they think that it’s hard to find outfits to complement it. Leopard print and floral scarves are the trends for this season. The key in order to avoid a fashion overkill is to not wear it with a printed top. Use this to break the monotone look of  plain black top but not as an accessory for an animal print blouse.
