WELCOME

s we developed this issue of Promo, across the United States fashion brand owners were using their tremendous visibility to dra attention to racial inequality, discrimination and the disproportionately high rate of police violence against people of color. By taking a knee or raising a fist to the industry who is suppose to be all about equality and acceptance. The essence of this issue shows how to peacefully show and illustrate the beauty of ever race around the globe. The fashion industry has become more diverse, more inclusive. More open. It is less them-vs.-you. It is us. Yes, fashion still has its flaws. Designers often still have tunnel vision. The industry still makes head-smacking gaffes. There are far too many cases of profound insensitivity and cavalier cultural appropriation. (Will those Kardashians ever learn?) But in the past decade, it has opened its doors to more people of color, plus-size women, transgender women and those who simply don’t fit the industry’s classic definition of beauty. Most importantly, fashion is talking about diversity in more nuanced ways - and learning from its mistakes. the conversation about diversity has expanded to include the role of immigrants in the industry and the rights of women. Diversity is not just about the imperative of an inclusive runway. It is also about identity: both personal and national.

KAILA METHVEN Kaila Methven has awakened the Dominatrix in every woman through her timeless and sensual lingerie line. Kaila is a true artist in how she creates, designs and thinks. Entrepreneur Kaila Methven might be a KFC heiress; (Methven’s family owned Rainbow Chicken Unlimited, a South African Company that at one time supplied 90% of KFC’s chicken), but Kaila Methven is a success in her own right. She now runs two high-end lingerie brands: Madame Methven and Lactrodectus (LDKM)(madamemethven.com). Kaila is also gorgeous — both inside and out and extremely generous. How can you not be inspired by a woman who goes after exactly what they want? Through her knowledge, training, and talent, Kaila has created a stunning couture lingerie line. The fusion of high fashion and lingerie is a brilliant aesthetic. ‘Madame’ is the stage name for Kaila Methven. It refers to women in artistic occupations or a dominatrix. Methven is a dominatrix when knowing what sells and how to create an incredibly successful company. She represents women’s empowerment, sensuality, and the magical experience of one’s sexual desires through her lingerie. Her line is classy and couture. It might all look effortless, but Methven never stops working or learning. It has paid off. Methven has combined her romantic and seductive style with fine intimates to create one timeless lingerie brand. Each piece is custom-made and represents authentic artistry. Kaila’s interest in haute couture was inspired in Paris at the age of sixteen. While spending time in the “city of lights,’ Methven interned at a Paris fashion show held at The Trocadero, home to the Palais de Chaillot. Methven trained in the art of design from the distinguished Fashion Institute Esmod. Kaila went on to earn a Master’s Degree from the International Fashion Academy Paris and completed advanced training at Polymodo in Florence. Kaila’s European influences and advanced training in fashion and design have transitioned seamlessly to the states, especially Los Angeles.

130 | PROMO | www.promomagnews.com

When Methven returned to Los Angeles in 2014, she had the passion and confidence to create, design and tailor luxury lingerie with the powerful and sensual woman in mind. “As a designer trained in haute couture, you have to know how to shape the women’s body. In designing a made-to-order piece, I am careful to customize my clothing to suit women’s distinct body types and the looks they want to express,” said Kaila. This is refreshing. As a designer, it’s so important to take each woman’s body type into consideration and envision what each client wants to express. This is why Methven is a true visionary. She is able to tell what looks good on a woman, what fabrics and trim curve to her appeal. Kaila feels all women are beautiful in every shape and form that’s how you design the lingerie for themwhen it emphasizes her values. Kaila’s creations have not gone unnoticed. Kaila has won Best International Designer Haute Couture and lingerie twice. She was also awarded the Most Dynamic Woman of the year by Angeleno Magazine as well. Methven was also featured on the cover of Maxim South Africa, which historical and personal meaning to her. She won best international design awards in Pret a Porter for lingerie twice, in which Madame Methven has many collections from high-end haute couture to affordable and desirable. Madame Methven’s dominating online presence will allow powerful women of discerning tastes to add prêt à porter or bespoke pieces to her boudoir with ease and discretion. This new relationship ensures that leading women wishing to express their feminine prowess will have access to collections specifically for them. Kaila Methven has designed three collections to date: the infamous Lactrodectus Collection, The Mademoiselle Collection, The Made to Adore Collection and The Bridal Collection. She debuted the Lactrodectus Collection at the Orange County Fashion Week as well as LAFW. Almost immediately after, she

Promo Magazine

was receiving fantastic attention from the press and fans. Her work has appeared in countless publications and celebrities such as Demi Lovato, the Kardashians, Katharine McPhee, Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Abigail Ratchford have worn her designs. Designs by her company, Madame Methven, have been featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and Love, and the buxom beauty has modeled the sultry attire herself for Maxim, Most and Femme. Overall, Kaila has designed and created a masterpiece regarding her entire company. In the fashion industry, it’s not easy to focus on a specific niche and stay consistent, while pushing limits as well. She has done it and very successfully. The Methven brand has woven themes of childlike innocence, erotic playfulness, and female power into the most elegant lace and textiles from Paris, along with brocade corsets, jackets, and top hats. Her new bridal collection will combine an array of pearls and colors in a dichotomous expression of innocence in provocative high-end lingerie. Kaila continues to stay inspired and take necessary risks. I truly believe it is the combination of her talent, her eye for high-end material, her love of details and a genuine desire to make women feel beautiful that produce successful and gorgeous results.

The Latrodectus Collection (LBKM) The Latrodectus Collection is a tribute to a secret elite that embraces the erotic thrill of male and female principals in an esoteric manner. The word Lactrodectus is definitive for black widow spider and Greek for “biting in secret.” Kaila’s Lactrodectus line has woven a web of timeless intrigue and artistry by crafting each stunning piece into an exquisite collection. Latrodectus is an haute couture line, made from the most beautiful beaded fabrics, laces, and other materials designed by Methven with her suppliers in the South of France. Kaila also works with feathers, bouquets, and accessories that she develops as well and dyes per the design she creates. Since the designs are haute couture, there is a process when clients order. Our team has seamstresses that create those pieces for the customer, get the fabric, the feathers, and put the art together. LBKM is the more affordable line with pieces ranging from $20.00 – $60.00 per item which will always contain the same quality in design and fabrics used. Madame Methven’s Made to Adore is an exclusive VIP and private membership.

Madame Methven’s customized Made to Adore Collection of Lingerie. This exclusive collection is a private and personalized shopping experience for women that appreciate the world of luxurious lingerie. Mademoiselle is a semi-couture line, more accessible to the public, but still using high-end fabrics to create the products. Madame Methven’s Made to Adore is an exclusive VIP and private membership. Private clients attend lingerie fittings with trained specialists in the Madame Methven showroom or location that works best for the client. The benefits of being a Mademoiselle member are invites to special events, fashion shows, and much more which, overall, makes for an intimate Methven experience. However, the turnaround is way faster than it would be with Latrodectus, as the fabric is not a product that has to be ordered; with pieces being made to order. Madame Methven has established a reputation for gorgeous quality fabrics and intricate craftsmanship with attention to detail that makes each piece of lingerie a wearable piece of beautifully crafted art. These are pieces to be cherished because they can’t be copied in look or feel. It is a complete high-end aesthetic that cannot be replicated. The custom fittings are not like the generic fittings. They are more of a magical experience. While you are fitted by one of the trained specialists in the comfort of your home, you are invited to sip on a chilled glass of Dom Perignon, paired with Osetra Caviar, and Pierre Herme French macaroons. The love of your life is to welcome to join while he sips on a glass of our most excellent whiskey paired with a fine cigar. The intimate experience is up to you whether you prefer an afternoon to yourself or a sensual fitting with someone special. You will discover the brand’s extensive Silk Library and select embellishments such as hand-corded dentelle lace appliqués, gold, Ta-

When Kaila is not busy building her empire, she is a proud advocate for LGBT and women’s rights, feeds the homeless every Monday, and hopes to create her own Madame Methven charity foundation through a percentage of its sales. Kaila Methven’s collection could potentially be the world’s most expensive lingerie. It makes a beautiful tribute to women. There is both an elegance of vivacious dominance and innocent beauty in the collection, and this line is exclusively for the leading lady who wishes to express that confidence with feminine prowess. Kaila Methven invites us to embrace our inner goddess. That is empowerment for all women. 132 | PROMO | www.promomagnews.com
