Letter from the Editor

Dear Salysians, I love Spring! I love waking up to the birds chirping, the sun shining, and flowers blooming. (I could do without the pollen though...) What’s your favorite flower? Roses? Sunflowers? Tulips? Hydrangeas? Lavender? Carnations? Geraniums? Hyacinths? Daffodils? Irises? Orchids? Dahlias? Marigolds? Peonies? Lilies?

FLORA Photographer: Sonya A. Lawyer; Model: Emily Caro; Make Up Artist: Monique Nicole; Hair Stylist: Kanika Styles; Gown: Danietté LLC; Headdress: Miss G Designs.

As I write this letter, I am rejoicing in the birth of my second niece, Lillie, who is named after my grandmother. Six months ago when I came up with theme of “Prints, Florals, and Patterns in Paisley Park” I never thought I would be mourning the loss of one of my favorite artists-- the musical genius, Prince! Births and deaths. It is the circle of life. So, I just want to suggest, hold your loved ones a little closer and give them their flowers today. Tomorrow is not guaranteed to anyone! Enjoy the warm weather! Enjoy the flowers! Enjoy life! As always, I hope you enjoy your escape! Hugs and Love, Sonya Alyse Lawyer Founder & Editor in Chief SALYSÉ Magazine

Meet Fashion Illustrator Wendy Buiter International illustrator, Wendy Buiter, creates beauty and fashion inspired art, utilizing vivid colors, to depict powerful women who exude confidence. Her playful art is inspired by contemporary haute couture and fashion photography. Wendy’s illustrations are an extension of herself, translating her creative energy onto the canvas, brought to life by the female characters she paints. Wendy was exposed to fashion and beauty cosmetics from an early age, discovering her passion for the arts and aesthetics and the freedom of expression through colors as a young and accomplished make-up artist. She was fortunate enough to travel the world, refining her skills by learning through education and observation internationally. During this period, Wendy managed to transform her talent into a successful company, Beautypartner, that collaborated with many of the world´s most established and renowned fashion and cosmetic houses including L’Oréal, CHANEL, LVMH, Yves Saint Laurent, MAC, and more! As a director, she was limited in time to develop her creative talent. After nearly 10 years of entrepreneurship, she then decided to take a sabbatical. She exited her company to once again pursue her strongest passion to become an accomplished painter and illustrator.

30 SALYSÉ May June 2016

Soon thereafter she was accepted and enrolled into one of the most prestigious art academies in The Netherlands and further developed her skills with fashion illustrators in Rotterdam and New York. Wendy is available to create original works for commission. See more of her work at:

Brande Wilkerson

Meet artist Brande Wilkerson Brande Wilkerson is an internationally published artist/designer/photographer for Victory Vintage Boutique & Design Studio. She began curating and selling vintage fashion in 1999 when her love of fashion, styling, and costume design grew. She is greatly inspired by early 1900’s fashion, silent film, and theatre arts and equally by the Victorian and Art Nouveau styles of that time. She debuted her own line of fashion and headpiece designs in 2012 when she opened her Etsy design studio. Her desire to defy trends and express individual style birthed her own collection of original fashion and costume designs. She has photographed fashion for well over a decade that includes her own designs as well as those for other designers. She has most recently expanded her creative skill set to create a more interesting model for her own designs. In her quest to remain unique and independently inspired, Brande recently created the morph model series of pop art surrealism portraits. These whimsical, fairy like, large eyed caricatures resemble her models but are an entirely different breed all their own. They are adorned in extravagant fashion, many in headpieces and jewels. In her own words: “I love faces! I consider portraits my forte in photography. I have always been drawn to faces. I love beauty, and see beauty in so many different ways. Working in the fashion industry over the years has become a bit uninteresting and uninspiring. There are always new trends, themes, and ideas circulating but I like my work to remain unique and untouched by fleeting trends. I like to step back in time 100 years or more to find my own personal inspiration. I especially love pop art and thought what if I combined this style with fashion illustrations in graphic art? I love how they have turned out, a feature of high fashion whismy, with a creative pop art vibe! “

Meet Fashion Designer Danietté A. Thomas How did you get started? Tell us a little about yourself. I originally fell in love with fashion when I was 11 years old and began drawing the clothing I was unable to find in local stores. A professor/mentor of mine at the time educated me on how I could bring those designs to life. Once I visually understood how I could do so, by the end of the day I knew my career would be in fashion design. In May of 2015 I graduated from The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion and an Accessory Minor. That summer I began receiving requests for custom garments and by the fall I decided to officially launch my business.

Speak it into existence, where do you see yourself in 5 years? I see myself successfully running my own ready to wear company sold in multiple stores and boutiques across the country.

What do you enjoy the most about fashion design? I enjoy finishing my garments the most. Seeing the final stages of my illustrations come to life is the best part!

What’s your favorite quote? “Say what you mean, mean what you say.” –D.OwensHarvey

What do you not enjoy about fashion design? The cut throat mentality of some people in the industry.

What’s your theme song? For Your Glory –Tasha Cobbs

Favorite color? At the moment, a mauve pink.

Favorite movie? Ray Charles

Favorite fabric you ever worked with? Silk Crepe.

Favorite actor/actress? Jamie Foxx

Favorite food? Chicken Teriyaki.

Favorite actress? Kerry Washington

What person, living or dead, would you love to create a design for? Michelle Obama

What is your idea of perfect happiness? Doing what you love, with whom you love, making a substantial income.

What would it be? Evening wear of course! Your zodiac sign? Virgo. What zodiac sign do you get along with the most? Gemini.

Three adjectives to describe yourself. Determined, Optimistic, and Passionate. Dream vacation you would like to take (or have taken)? France, during fashion week, front row for all fashion shows!
