Holiday Hip List 2018: Aisha RTW

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino recently met with Aisha, owner of Aisha RTW. The Aisha brand is based in NJ and consists of hand made, ready to wear dresses, coats, capes, scarves and handbags. The items are all made with fine Italian materials offering superior quality. Aisha explains that she completed her master’s in Italy and grew to love the Italian fabrics, which is why that’s all she uses for now.  

“We want women to put on the dresses and feel amazing”, Aisha says.

These products are made for women who want to be comfortable, yet luxurious and fashionable. They are for women who want simplicity with a pop of pizazz. The versatility of the clothing appeals to just about any type of woman there is. 

Aisha told Lisa, “When you feel amazing, you look amazing. Its not just about the dress, its about how you feel in the dress.” 

This resonated with me because I’ve always been told, “When you look amazing, you feel amazing”, but I like the way Aisha puts it much better.  How you feel is more important than how you look. Anyone can throw on a beautiful dress and look extremely beautiful on the outside while feeling uncomfortable and self conscious on the inside.  

Every woman should have at least one Aisha RTW item in their closet if they want to be comfortable, versatile and fashionable! For more information, visit AishaRTW.com.

Kelly Wynne is Coming to Nordstrom

The newly imposed trend of clear handbags for sports fans and music-lovers is finally hitting the shelves. The designer announced that Nordstrom will be selling Kelly Wynne handbags beginning late July. It is currently the only clear handbag the retailer is carrying for fashionistas.

Kelly Wynne recently released the first ever backpack for the brand. It is clear with a removable flap that allows it to transition into a tote for easier access through security.

In addition, the brand offers customization for their clear handbags, so customers can purchase their team colors. Shoppers can choose from eight python prints including: black/grey and white, blue, navy, purple, red/navy, crimson/maroon, green, and orange.

“As a personal shopper of Nordstrom, it’s surreal to see my bags now carried here,” said Kelly Wynne Ferguson, CEO of Kelly Wynne. “We are excited for this new partnership and honored to be Nordstrom’s premiere choice for their customers for clear handbags. This opens up new distribution channels for our brand with one of the largest and most reputable retailers. We look forward to working with Nordstrom and know that our game day bags offer a ‘wynne-wynne’ opportunity.”

Looking ahead, Kelly Wynne will be launching her “Mirage” Fall collection this August that is inspired by the desert. It also has a deeper theme that calls out the facade many people live behind in today’s online world. Furthermore, the brand will offer over 50 new handbags with various python prints, all inspired by being authentic and being comfortable in one’s own skin.
