Do what you love. A phrase I've lived by ever since I was young. When I was 12 years old, I taught myself a little HTML and CSS. Whenever I messed up one piece of code, (which most of the time messed up the entire page I spent hours making) I would get so frustrated but very determined to figure out how to fix it. It felt like it turned into a game of sorts and I had to solve the puzzle. That is where my love for design started. Well maybe a little younger when I would rip off all the cool-looking tags from the clothes at Marshalls and Filene's. I mean who wouldn't? Most of the time they were holographic or came with free stickers! Anyways, my love for design consumed my life up to the point in realization that I could design as a career. My love for fashion eventually came into play and thats when it clicked that two are a match-made in heaven…basically how ONE Magazine started! If you're reading this right now, I just want to say thank you. Everyone has dreams and goals they want to accomplish in life. This magazine is one of them for me. It wouldn't be anywhere close to where it is now if it wasn't for my readers but especially my contributors. They made this issue shine brighter than all the past issues combined! It's a joint effort to put together an issue, and I love collaborating with talented fashion photographers and designers. I want to showcase how amazing they are. The inspiration for the energy issue came from this seasons collections. I've been obsessed with this 'energetic' sport trend circling around the fashion industry such as Prada, Alexander Wang, and more. This issue has a mix of everything and I hope you enjoy! founder, editor at large, designer

Pola thomson Interview Nicole Gavrilles Images Courtesy of Pola Thomson

When I came across the work of Pola Thomson, I was blown away by it's strong simplicity and then I could immediately envision women wearing her clothes. The Chilean born now New York based designer, Pola Thomson launched her label in 2010 and since then has begun to make a name for herself. In December 2010, she was elevated to a new level of status with the debut of her collection at that time, in PRD (Pasarela Raíz Diseño) honored as “Best Collection” by international press, Harper’s Bazaar México and Marie Claire Latin America. She recently had a runway show featuring her Autumn 2014 collection in Santiago de Chile at the end of May. This is only the beginning of her amazing work, and in the near future I will be recognizing her beautiful pieces flowing ever so beautifully as I pass New Yorkers walking through the cobble-stoned blocks in SoHo.

Can you tell us a little about your background? I'm a Chilean born, NY based designer. I attended the prestigious Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, where I completed a B.A in Design with a strong focus in art, aesthetics and design. Since the early 2000s, I’ve been recognized as a fashion pioneer in Latin America launching a design label and through my work as a freelance contributor, editor and fashion stylist for several magazines. In 2008, I won the Gama Cut Award as “Best Fashion Stylist” of the year – soon after I started a journey around the fashion capitals of the world; during those days I enrolled in different courses at Central Saint Martins College of Arts & Design in London and Parsons The New School of Design in New York. POLA THOMSON my eponymous womenswear and costume jewelry collection launched in 2010 when moved to NY. Since then my collections have been presented in several runways in my hometown Santiago, Chile and internationally in Canada and Panama.   I been honored and award winning in my hometown Santiago as “Best Collection” in 2010 by international press, Harper’s Bazaar México and Marie Claire Latin America. In 2011, I was awarded as a new talent at “Who’s Next & Première Classe” in Paris, France, where I won the “Femme” category and was invited again in January 2012 for exhibiting my AW’12 collection. Back in

Chile I’ve been recognized by one of the most important newspapers “El Mercurio” as one of the 100 young national leaders. This year 2014 I was selected in a group of a 100 designers to showcase the collection in Vicenza Italy at Origin Fair first edition curated by London based platform Not Just A label and Fiera di Vicenza.   We’ve been featured and celebrated by diverse medias from Chile, Panama, Mexico, Spain, Germany, Japan, Hungary and the U.K. to name a few. When did you know you wanted to be a fashion designer? I did know I was a creative one since my childhood. When I asked for a sewing machine when I was 12, I guess that was a decisive moment in which fashion was the media I was choosing to create. What's it like being in the industry? It’s a very exciting one, as in this field there is no office and the industry turns in a way to be a big collaborative one. There are so many interesting people you get to know that are part of it and from different fields. The fashion industry is one that goes from creativity to craftsmanship, to business, to public and politic relations – it's an industry that incarnates life it self.

“Clothes are just not clothes, they are physical amalgam of p e r s p e c t i v e s a b o u t g e n d e r, culture, art, life and spiritual experiences.” — pola thomson

How would you describe your brand? Looking to achieve the most impact though the least parts, conceiving simplicity rather than a goal as a result. Who is your target audience? I am a woman designing for a women clear about who they are and doesn't get lost in a sea of trends. She knows her self and what she wants, and it’s there where her attractive and magnetism lies. What was your inspiration for your newest AW14 collection? This story is told by a woman for a woman. Each piece has been carefully crafted to reflect a newfound elegance. The silhouette exhales sensual tailoring and relaxed sportswear, synthesizing the core elements of contemporary fashion.   The signature palette of Pola Thomson is rendered with a new intensity this season. Bright red, pale blue and soft tobacco creates a vibrant interaction with the classic black and white. For Autumn-Winter 2014, sumptuous materials like silk duchess satin, heavy silk satin and Chilean wool flannel reveal innovative techniques and intricate design, new cuts have been added, hand-made buttons and metal zippers accentuate elaborate constructions.

“This collection is a m a n i f e s t o a b o u t i d e n t i t y, a dialogue between feminism and the western ideals of beauty and desire.” — pola thomson

What were your biggest challenges designing your collection for AW14? There are a lot of constructive details we never tried before and it was a big challenge getting them right. It might seem like something easy though when you want to archive great quality, all details count. Do you design from a studio or your home? Form both, either the ones in NY or Santiago, and some times I sketch ideas from hotels and on planes. What store would you love to have your clothes in? One that appreciates all the values involved in our brand and is able to connect us with our audience. Beyond your business, what are your hobbies or passions? Love snapping photos with my phone, traveling and sharing time with my loved ones. What was the best career advice you ever received? Embrace the path to your goals. What do you hope the future holds for you? Great things. You can view the entire collection on polathomson.com

stanmore Interview Nicole Gavrilles Images Courtesy of Catherine Alexander

I recently came across Stanmore, a high-end jewelry line focused on the feminine aesthetic while incorporating a modern, sharp edge. Founded by Catherine Alexander, who currently resides in Brooklyn, NY designing her unique eye-catching jewelry pieces. Her Spring/Summer 2014 collection was inspired by freedom movements that celebrated a reaction to traditionalism with bold, assertive shapes and eye-catching colors such as the Egyptian Revival Movement of the 1920's and the PostPunk movements of the 80's. I cannot wait to get my hands on one of her pieces!

Can you tell us a little about your background? I grew up in Washington DC and was lucky enough to be part of a business-minded family that supported my black-sheepish artsy creativity no questions asked.  I came to New York for school when I was 17 and fell into the film industry the day I graduated from NYU.  I worked my way up the ladder from PA to Producer over the next handful of years but, after a big film fell through with the crash of 2008, I took a look at my life and realized I was super unhappy with what I was doing.  I decided I was either going to law school for Education Reform or going to make a go of it working with my hands... sorry kids. 

else's.  I really feel that if we allow our conscious mind to be at it's most relaxed - while it's difficult to keep yourself open to that kind of innate stimulation/reaction all the time - it pays off big time.

Do your pieces have a theme or underlying idea? I've always been drawn to things that are seemingly complicated but covertly simple. For example, an intricate pattern is made with repetitions or variations of simple shapes so, when it's deconstructed, it's far more manageable. Architecture works the same way and, in a more organic arena, so does nature (take a look at the flowers blooming right now and you'll see what I mean). Everything is a puzzle piece and you just have to   I studied woodworking and metalwork for a time, find the piece that goes next to it.  I design with that in but it was jewelry that immediately made sense mind and I usually end up with something I like. to me.  Fashion, design, working with my hands, researching, and yes - even producing are all part of What was your inspiration for your newest SS14 running a jewelry company and are all things that fuel collection? me from day to day. I've always been most inspired by the Art Deco Period so I already love a geometry-based aesthetic.  Last year Where do you get your jewelry design inspiration I came across a collection of party-goer portraits from come from? around the time of the Egyptian Revival Movement Literally from anywhere:  from the materials I'm using and I was also reading a book about the Post-Punk to a picture I see on someone's iPhone to an article I movement in the 80's - the two things collided in my read.  Anything can trigger a response in someone brain and ... voila. and that response is going to be different than anyone

What were your biggest challenges designing this collection? Aesthetically, nothing. It all came out in one fell swoop. All of the challenges came out in the sample/materials stage but no one wants to hear about that because it's boring and I figured it all out so I'm just going to pretend like it never happened and I never had days of despair. Do you design from a studio or your home? Both. Sort of. I have the luxury of having a separate office and studio in my home. I'll be outgrowing it soon but for now it's pretty great.  How was being a small business owner changed your design approach? (If it has changed it.) Where to begin.... Anyone who has started their own business will tell you that you have to compromise on every front.  The things I like the least sometimes sell the best and vice versa.  Editing down the collection to keep costs down is actually a great tool for curation but it's also SUPER annoying and gut-wrenching. It's sad that I have less time to design than I'd like because, realistically, design is only a small part of a jewelry line, but I also get a great amount of satisfaction doing all the day to day emailing, networking, projecting, etc. Have you had any celebrities wearing your pieces? Chelsea Handler, Shailene Woodley, Audrina Patridge to name a few across the spectrum. It's an amazing thing to see someone on the cover of InStyle magazine wearing your ring.

Is there a specific celebrity you'd love to see wearing your designs? Emma Stone. I have a girl-camp crush on her. She's a funny one with a head on her shoulders. And not to mention - she's a stunner. Beyond your business, what are your hobbies or passions? Trolling for things to put in my home (but not in a hoarder way.) I love gardening. I also love food: I love to cook and try new dishes. My boyfriend is a (fantastic) chef so I really lucked out there.  What was the best career advice you ever received? If you could do anything in the world and you knew you wouldn't fail at it, what would you do? Then find a way to DO it.  What do you hope the future holds for you? A house upstate and a house at the beach and a magical gondola that connects the two.  You can view more pieces from Catherine's SS14 collection as well as past collections on stanmorenyc.com

The fun energy of Fall 2014 can be attributed to the rising models with unique looks and designers with budding creativity who made their artistic voices heard around the world. Ranging from Poland to New York and Burundi to Paris, this new pack of models and designers all bring something special to the fashion industry. Whether it’s the model slash law student, the designer who got his start with Rihanna or the former Oscar de la Renta intern who started her own line, each of these newcomers bring a new perspective and a breath of fresh air to the runways and will be the ones to watch as the seasons progress.

models —

Lily McMenamy   Of all the new models, few have as a famous of a fashion pedigree as Lily McMenamy, whose mother, Kristen McMenamy, modeled for the likes of Chanel, Valentino and Versace in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Like her mother, Lily has a unique look that can border on androgynous, and she often challenges the conventional notions of beauty. Although she made her debut in Spring 2013 for Saint Laurent, Lily’s career is continuing to climb, and she opened Jeremy Scott’s Fall 2014 Moschino show and walked for designers like Emilio Pucci, Jean Paul Gaultier, Kenzo and Fendi. With her surge in editorial work so far in 2014, it’s likely this young fashion star’s presence on the runways will only grow come Spring 2015. Ola Rudnicka   With her ice blonde hair and striking features, Aleksandra “Ola” Rudnicka stunned the fashion crowd on the Fall 2014 runways for names like Donna Karan, Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Versace and

Dolce & Gabbana. Ola had a huge fall season not only on the runways but also backstage. She’s a favorite of photographers who often snap images of her during first looks and a growing sensation in the editorial field as well. So whether she’s in print or on the runway, one thing for sure is that Ola’s star power is rising, and she’s poised to be one of the next big names in fashion. Imaan Hammam   Born in the Netherlands, Imaan Hammam can thank designer Ricardo Tisci for shining the spotlight on her when he cast her in Givenchy’s spring runway show. Tisci continued to show his fondness for Imaan by casting her in his fall show as well, and she also walked for Narcisco Rodriguez, Marc Jacobs, Giambattista Valli, Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen.

Leila Ndabirabe (Nda)   Leila Nda isn’t your typical fashion model. Not only does this woman bring grace and elegance to the clothing of designers like Rodarte, Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta, Gucci and Marni, but she is also is a law student who speaks six languages fluently. Leila was born in Burundi and raised in Belgium, and during the Fall 2014 season, she navigated the runways of major labels while being enrolled in law school at the University of Libres in Brussels. Her sophistication and intelligence will get her far in the fashion world, and come Spring 2015, she’ll likely be the lady that all the designers lust after.

designers — Adam Selman   If Adam Selman’s name sounds familiar, it’s because he’s the man behind Rihanna’s costumes and the cocreator of the extremely popular Rihanna for River Island collaboration. Although he debuted his line in September, he made waves during Fall 2014 with his fun yet sophisticated sportswear that is the epitome of cool girl chic. Although he kept his palette simple and stayed with red, white, black and blue, his collection was anything but. He featured coats and jackets that popped and patterned pants and dresses that managed to ride the line between trendy and timeless. Yes, you can see Rihanna rocking every piece, but it’s a grown up look that has It girl uniform written all over it meaning

come spring, Selman is going to be stepping in to his own spotlight when his clothing turns heads on the street. Alessandra Rich   Although Alessandra Rich named her Fall collection “Bad Reputation,” her assortment of good girl gone bad lace dresses had anything but. Rich experimented with panels and inserts sometimes combining up to 14 different types of fabrics on one look, and the result is eye catching and prompts viewers to take a closer look at her unique take on evening wear. Her gowns often featured lace bottoms and sleeves, and Rich played with the concept of showing skin but in an alluring and subtle way rather than in your face sexy. Rich’s line is meant for the sultry provocateur, and it is only a matter of time before celebrities start rocking these looks on red carpets. MSGM   Massimo Giorgetti has been turning heads on the runways and the streets since MSGM’s first Milan runway show in Spring 2014, but this season he did less clashing and opted for more cohesion with full patterned looks in his notoriously bold prints. Giorgetti is not one for subtlety, but some of his pieces had a flirty sophisticated feel with sweetheart sheer necklines and fall floral prints. However, he left his zany mark with fur gloves, fur lined shoes, bold metallic coats and paillette skirts. It’s obvious this former DJ is making himself at home in the Milan fashion world and with each season he continues to challenge himself and hone his skills.

Rosie Assoulin   With a resume boasting the likes of Oscar de la Renta, Adam Lippes and Brian Reyes, it was only a matter of time before she added designer of her eponymous label to her career section. Rosie Assoulin may have started as an intern, but now her own line, which launched in Resort 2014, is turning heads and causing industry insiders to buzz. In contrast to many designers who are playing with patterns, her clothing was like a palette cleanser of solid colors and unique shapes. The looks are elegant and innovative but wearable, and she often paired wide leg trousers or full-length skirts with Superga sneakers that made her collection approachable despite its fun mixture of new styles. The only safe bet in regards to Assoulin’s minimalistic approach is that the fashion world is sure to see more from this up and coming star. Tome   It’s very clear from their collection that Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin respect women and look to lift them up to be the most confident and collected versions of themselves. Tome’s fall collection featured elegant, sophisticated and timeless pieces like tan overcoats lined with red for flair, easy silk dresses and peplum tops with fur collars. The two designers behind Tome studied fashion in Australia before starting their own line in 2010. Although the line is four years old, it began making waves in 2013 when the Council of Fashion Designers of America selected Tome as a finalist for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, a mentoring program and award that has boasted the likes of Altuzarra, Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang. With company like that and women like Georgia O’Keefe and Lauren Hutton as inspiration, there is no doubt this duo will be designing empowering clothing for years to come.
