There is a chill in the air and a perfect time to layer! Options are a necessity, and here are a few options for your basic scarf or necklace. Drape these neck pieces on anything from a tee to a dress or blazer and coat, and walla…transforming you from simply drab to impossibly fab! Plush, soft, chic, and exclusive, you can easily work these pieces into your wardrobe and the wearability is phenomenal! Now is time to add a one-of-a-kind accessory in your artillery. Designed for Xo, Avery.

Getting back into creative design mode after traveling for 3 and a half months. It is Gala Season, Holiday Parties, and many Special Events to dress for. These pieces are works in progress, but when finished, will transform any LBD, jumpsuit, or gown you may have into a head turner.
Tweaks needed here and there. Playing with pieces to see what may evolve and keep my eye interested and my soul happy.
It is all about the ‘try’, forget about the ‘why’. The first thing that will sabotage the creative process is putting yourself in a box. Allow your expression to scream out! Some may like it, some may not. Not everything is for everyone. Be true to you, because the first time you curb your talent to bend to someone else’s taste, you lose a bit of yourself.
The extra layer of long black fringe with the silver spikes against it, adds a lot. I think this piece is about done. This was designed specifically for a long black gown.
I design for someone, like myself, who likes to live out loud! Who is not a wallflower, but like my XO Avery tag line states, made for those who “strut life’s runway”. I also like to wear something no one else will have!
All one-of-a-kind accessories.
It can be a timely and complicated process, that is for certain. In the end, only gorgeous looks remain.

This is what I’ve been working on for XO, Avery. I’ve started designing interesting and exclusive neck pieces beyond the jewelry line. These are created for the woman who wants to change the look of her favorite LBD or just wants to be chic and fabulous. I saw Barbara Walters’ last show on The View, and wouldn’t you know it, two women showed up with the same dress on stage. UGH! A super easy fix is to always have a Plan B…so you don’t look like an A and turn into a B 😉 These pieces can be your “A” Game, or a Plan B, if necessary. I only make one-of-a-kind, so no one will ask….”who wore it better?”.
These are not online for sale at this time. If you would like to inquire about this line, please email me at: XOAveryDesigns@gmail.com

The above collage is a small taste of what’s happening in my new online store. I design and create everything in my collection, and it is all one-of-a-kind. I like to mix it up with Vintage and new, reuse and repurpose when I can, and keep in mind the unique shapes and styles of my clients. I want the XO, Avery line to be an extension of my fashion styling business. Those who wear it will feel special, look proportionate and dynamic, and won’t see the look on anyone else!
First, I introduce jewelry. Take a sneak peek at:
http://XOAvery.etsy.com and see these pieces (and more) in living color.
The Accessories debut is coming soon, along with my Private Vintage Collection!
Eunika Simmons is a vibrant and talented, self taught designer from Brooklyn, New York. Fusing her African roots with contemporary fashion, she created her clothing line, ” The Naked Roots Collection”. Her line ranges from swimwear to elegant coats, jewelry and accessories. Her fabrics are striking and designs beautifully unique. The proof is in the detail work she puts into each piece. Definitely stunning. Definitely head-turning.
All pieces are sold one-of-a-kind and handmade at this time.
I don’t know of a better thing to wear than a designer original…..the only one, and you’ve got it.
There is something very luxurious and sensuous about it all.
For more information about “The Naked Roots Collection”, please contact the designer, Eunika Simmons directly; email@example.com
An emerging designer to keep your eye on.

No matter where you live, design is all around us. We visited the IADT Design Student Fashion Show. Student designers are another avenue to take in finding that unique piece to add to your wardrobe.
IADT Fashion Show
The International Academy of Design and Technology (IADT) recently had their student designers show their original work during Fashion Week at the Mall at Millenia in Orlando. There is a lot of talent in this small group. Working with a student designer is a great way to collaborate with someone who has a fresh viewpoint and is passionate about design, to create a one-of-a-kind look for you.
As you see from just a small sampling of the student’s work, there are some gifted young designers in our midst.
Kudos students ~ Xo, Avery
