Love who you are and treat yourself like you are a diamond because you truly are!! Ya Dig? 💪👏☺ 🔶💠
The unique thing I automatically loved about Aïleen upon meeting her was that there are actually two dots above the I in her first name (which is pronounced I -Lean). Aïleen which often times goes by the name Ally is a 23 year old fashion designer who was born in Haiti on August 7th 1994. Although Haiti is her home town she is actually mixed with Cuban, African, Egyptian, Arabian, Asian, Dominican, and German. She moved to Florida in 2006. Although she moved from Haiti she knows a fashion Designer out there that she sells her fashions to!! I asked Ms.Peters what is the name of her clothing line? "Ally Line" was her reply and she also informed me of her website that will soon be up and running.
Check out this dress:
This caught my eye personally because when examining the back portion of this dress you can see the lovely scrunched bow connection she applied which gives this masterpiece a wonderful drooped design!!starting from the torso on down.
Aïleen graduated from Lynn University in 2016 with a Bachelors in Fashion Design. "When I was a kid I always made clothes for barbie and drew some designs for fun"
Let's take a look at some of Aïleen's sketches:
" Fashion is a statement of who you are and what you want people to perceive about you...fashion is basically you" I couldn't agree more with her definition of fashion!! It is evident as a fashion designer to express who you are...always so that when people see your designs they see something about your personality with each creation. Aïleen currently designs woman's apparel. She enjoys using fabrics such as silk with polyester and spandex. "Polyester helps to show off the figure without worrying about too much tightness"
Aïleen's biggest inspiration when designing is nature!! ☺☺☺
Look at this sketch !!!
I love this because i can see how it looks as though a tree is sort of hugging this woman in a comfortable way where she can still flaunt her figure!!👏👏👏👏
While getting to know Aïleen Melody Peters I told her I specifically loved one main trait of her personality and that is that she is so real! She is the type of woman that holds her own head strong with such a great confidence. She doesn't take no for an answer and she is forever challenging herself to do better. She also is extremely loving and caring towards others. Aïleen is a very positive woman when i told her how unique she was and how i loved her attitude of perseverance she told me " you got to be just to be the best" I had never heard this before so I asked her to eleborate,this is what she told me " Everyone is the best at what they do and people can achieve it!! They should try" She tells me her parents taught her this when she was a child!! 👍 Ms.Peters plans to have world wide fashion stores in the future. I believe there are no limits in life so why not reach for the highest degree? 👏 When designing Aïleen prefers to use colors such as blue , pink , yellow , and green. One interesting fact Ms.Peters shared with me while interviewing her was that she only attended an sewing class for five days then she automatically picked up sewing on her own!!! I thought that was pretty impressive!! That's how I knew fashion was surley her passion!!!👏👏👏👍👍👍☺
"I would tell a young uprising fashion designer to keep following your dreams and don't listen to anyone who says otherwise" This is the advice Aïleen has for all young upcoming fashion designers. I asked Aïleen Melody Peters one last question when closing my interview I wanted to know how she would define herself by using only one word?
"Creative" she says to me , and I'm thinking that's wonderful because creativity is what fashion is all about!!! ☺☺
"You either know fashion or you don't"- Anna Wintour. I can confirm that Aïleen Melody Peters has just what it takes to Rock The Runway!! and I am excited about where her future will take her next!!!
