We are currently witnessing the democratization of fashion. Women are rejecting archaic and frighteningly narrow notions of beauty that don’t include women of all shades, shapes and sizes. And they are looking to everyday people for fashion inspiration instead of relying on magazines and advertisements. In light of this style revolution, it’s not far-fetched to assume women might take designing into their own hands as well. Why wait for a fashion brand to tell you what’s hot when you can create it on your own?
It’s with that attitude in mind that Lala Anthony and style expert Daisy Lewellyn hosted a DIY party to celebrate the launch of X-Rated Fusion Liqueur’s new yellow flavor, TROPIX. With yellow as the theme, the two fashion mavens encouraged guests to create their own yellow statement pieces such as necklaces, coasters and lacquered trays.
We caught up with Daisy Lewellyn to discuss why more style enthusiasts should be open to DIY-ing their own clothing, accessories and home items. She gave us five reasons to try DIY plus three easy recipes to get you started. Check it out in the slideshow.
