Despite the winter weather of last Saturday, Hemline@LSU members set out to design dresses for a great cause. Alongside the American Heart Association, LSU students constructed garments out of paper hearts, and what a sight to see! Shoppers were able to make donations throughout the four hour construction process, at the Mall of Louisiana, and give their heart to the designer of the dress they liked the most. The winner of the competition, Jade Owens, will be honored at the annual AHA banquet! All the dresses will be on display at the Mall of Louisiana this week. Make sure to stop by, check them out, and enjoy a little shopping!

Extra Extra! Here’s your last sneak peak!
Last but not least, Hazel & Florange, Ella Rose, JessLeigh Jewels, and Vertu Boutique are going to be struttin’ their stuff next Friday afternoon. The vendors will be set up in the Human Ecology Lobby (across the street from Howe-Russell and the Life Science buildings) from 11-4 pm. Also, another reminder that changing rooms will be provided!
Let’s get to it!
Our first vendor:
Hazel & Florange
From the queen herself, blogger and co-founder of NOLA Fashion Week, comes this “celebration of southern charm.”
Andi Eaton is the perfect example of a Power Woman. She’s energetic, efficient and likes her tea served sweet on the porch of a New Orleans shotgun house. A familiar face to Hemline, she has supported many of our members through internships and NOLA Fashion Week. Eaton recently opened a store on Charters with Micah Nickens (owner of Gaudet Bros).
Hazel & Flo is for the girl who buys local. She’s totally chic, loves sweet tea, and can’t get enough of parades and brass bands. Sound like your style? Then, you’ll LOVE the merchandise available from Hazel & Florange. Andi will also be selling some graphic Tees, which are to die for.
Our second vendor:
Ella Rose Designs
If you love feminine silhouettes, vibrant colors, and a little glitz and glam, you will adore Ella Rose Designs. LSU Alumni, former Hemline President (2012-2013), and friend, Rose is one of the hottest new commodities to hit the Nola fashion scene. Charming and sweet, she totally embodies her brand and her line.
She will be selling bow ties and lots of super cute skirts that are worth pairing with tights.(you simply won’t be able to wait until spring to wear them!)
Our third vendor:
Jess Leigh Jewels
Jess Leigh Jewels, recently paired with Ella Rose for NOLA Fashion Week S/S’14, is the jewelry equivalent of that glitz and glam gal. Her specialty: refurbishing vintage pieces into unique, handcrafted masterpieces.
She not only handcrafts each piece, but also runs the entire business, solo, while teaching cardio/jazzercise classes at Dance Trance Fitness. Can you say WONDER WOMAN?! You can find her store on Magazine Street, so make sure to check it out!
And, our absolute final vendor:
A trendy little boutique, located in the Zachary area, Vertu has an wide range of options to choose from.
In just 6 days, you will be in Trunk Show heaven!
Bats On Tees, The Elizabeth Chronicles, Time Warp, and Chloe + Isabel by Vida Pura Spa are visiting us next Thursday, and we are more than excited to have them.
Need a little more info on the designers? Want a little sneak peak? We got you covered.
Our first vendor:
Bats on Tees
Tiffany Napper, the founder, is the coolest. Her detailing is phenomenal, including hand-painted letters, gold embroidery, and much more.
A #BatPack girl is charming, sassy and stylish but never over the top. Bats on Tees offer apparel, purses, and accessories. You can find them at tons of pop shops over the south and they’re currently expanding into different boutiques. If you buy one of her products, make sure you instagram a picture of it with the hashtag #BatPack to be featured on their website!
Our second vendor:
The Elizabeth Chronicles
Are you super chic but totally down to earth? Are you the girl that can rock printed, sequin pants and a basic graphic tee? Then The Elizabeth Chronicles is right for you!
The founders, Katie and Rachel, are both from New Orleans (not mention LSU Alumn!). They’re famous from their blog, but also own this chic little Tee shop!
Our third vendor:
Time Warp Boutique
It may not be the dance from Rocky Horror Picture Show…but it’s just as fantastic! Located right on Government Street, this store carries all your favorite vintage clothes from the ‘20s to the ‘80s.
Not sure if vintage clothing suits you? Time Warp also has the answer to that! They also sell merchandise like henna, Nouvelle and Skeem candles, lip gloss, sunglasses, cigarette cases, and jewelry. There is something for everyone at Time Warp.
And, our final vendor:
Chloe + Isabel by Vida Pura Spa
Jewelry with a glamorous charm, there’s not doubt that you can find the perfect “night out” accessory. Hypoallergenic, nickel-free, lead safe, AND affordable. Could you ask for anything better?!
