STYLE SESSIONS: The Rule Breakers, Part 2

13 Sep

For people who thrive on creativity, pushing the limits of what is possible is often the only way to stay inspired. And in the midst of fashion month and a brand new season of style, inspiration is certainly in the air.

Case in point: two women who effortlessly move between many creative mediums – acting, DJ-ing, writing, to name just a few – while always expressing their personal style and setting the latest trend. These are the creators:  Ashley Madekwe (actress and blogger) and Hannah Bronfman (DJ and co-founder of the Beautified app) who personify the effortlessly cool yet impeccably stylish vibe of our Malhia Kent couture denim.

Her High Fashion Credentials

Besides being a seasoned actress, most notably for her role as Ashley Davenport on Revenge, the UK born performer and fashion-lover showcases her street wear-inspired style on her popular blog, Ring My Bell. 

Boundary Pushing Moment

Ashley donned a show stopping Naeem Khan gown, which was made up of hundreds of little metallic discs, to a recent charity event. She describes the dress as a pure work of art that felt like she was wearing a suit of armor.

Her Fashion Mantra

Ashley doesn’t believe there are any “rules” in fashion and says that the main component of good style is simply having the right attitude to pull it off. She is a living example of that if there ever was one.

Her Malhia Kent Look

Ashley was inspired to pair the Pieced Skinny in Silver Geo Tweed with street tough basics. Her leather jacket and Dr. Marten boots are as cool as basics get, as well as go-to sartorial staples in Ashley’s closet.

Her High Fashion Credentials

The New York City native puts her own playful spin on high fashion looks, creating cool and polished ensembles that have a distinctly downtown vibe.

Boundary Pushing Moment

Hannah’s most memorable head turning moment was when wearing an all-red ensemble to a high profile dinner during Paris Fashion Week. She made sure to make a statement and took the outfit all the way by wearing a red trench coat, red high heels and a bright red lip.

Her Fashion Mantra

As a DJ and entrepreneur, Hannah expresses herself creatively through her clothes, often wearing her designer friend’s latest creations. She also gets adventurous with colorful and charm laden nail art and experiments with unexpected lip color.

Her Malhia Kent Look

Hannah went for a look that is indicative of her busy schedule—a versatile and pulled together outfit, with the Pieced Skinny in Blue Metallic Stripe, that effortlessly takes her from a daytime business meeting for her beauty app to a late night DJ-ing gig.
