Color Block with Naven!
Color is all the rage right now and Naven has great bright colored separates for your wardrobe. I think the color blocking trend is such a fun way to make a bold statement. The Naven collection is great because the pieces are so classy and sophisticated but have a fun flare to them. You can try color blocking the Monroe shorts with any of their oversized blouses. You can invest in a few different colored Naven pieces and create so many different fun outfits!

NAVEN Interview Part two!
Sydney Interviews NAVEN Designers, Kym & Alexis McClay (Part II)
This is Part II of my interview with NAVEN designers, Kym and Alexis. Read on to see which celebs fashion NAVEN duds, what we’ll see from NAVEN this season, and more!
S: Does the way you both dress influence the vibe of your designs?
K&A: One of the advantages of being a girl and owning a hot clothing line is being able to wear the duds at all time. To be honest NAVEN is basically all we wear. Our designs influence the way we dress and not vice-versa. We love color, color blocking, cut outs, studs, faux leathers and faux furs. We love the contrast that’s created from an edgy take on classic silhouettes.
S: Why are celebrities so geared towards your line and who was the first to wear your designs?
K&A: Whether in Hollywood or strolling through city streets, every girl likes to be noticed and likes to feel sexy when they step out of the house; looking like they belong on the best dressed list is the appeal for young Hollywood. NAVEN is made for the red carpet through its fits and use of color. Some of the first celebs to rock NAVEN duds were The Kardashians, Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari. Over the years, we have dressed celebs like Kendra Wilkenson, Paula Abdul, Paris Hilton, LaLa Anthony, and Amber Lancaster.
S: What are we going to see from NAVEN this fall and winter?
K&A: Expect to freak out over faux furs, and sparkle in sequins.
S: What’s next for NAVEN? Shoes? Handbags?
K&A: NAVEN is currently expanding our womens line, and adding gowns. Look out for long flowing gowns on the red carpet this awards season.
S: Where can my readers buy your line?
K&A: Shopnaven.com is the best place to get the best prices and promos for NAVEN clothes.
Re-edited version of NAVEN’s interview!
If you’ve ever flicked through the pages of Life & Style or caught up with some of your favorite stars on E!, chances are you’ve already spied at least one NAVEN creation on the red carpet. Twin designers Kym and Alexis McClay know just what girls crave – fun, flirty and figure-flattering pieces in bold, look-at-me hues. Khloe & Kim Kardashian, Kristin Cavallari and Kendra Wilkinson are among the starlets that have been snapped sporting their aptly named ‘Bombshell’ and ‘Party’ dresses, earning the McClay sisters their enviable title of queens of Young Hollywood style - Ashley Schuweiler
Q: Where do you find inspiration for your designs?
NAVEN Girls: Our inspiration comes from everyday life, for example; a color scheme for a printed blouse could come from the colors in a flower, the angular structure of a dress, from city architecture, the theme of a collection from an Old Hollywood movie. We take those tangible inspirations and create our “Dream Closet” each season to the next.
Q: Is there any celebrity you would love to see wear your designs?
NAVEN Girls: We would love to see Katy Perry and Kate Bosworth in NAVEN. Katy represents freedom and playfulness that we incorporate in Naven clothing through Color and mini cuts, and Kate represents poise and classicism, which we portray in creating a unique take on classic silhouettes.
Q: As twins do you think you have similar fashion styles?
NAVEN Girls: We tend to take polarized view on fashion. Kym loves to be edgy and push the fashion boundary, where as Alexis likes to stay true to a sophisticated and classic look.
Q: You have captured the “Young Hollywood” vibe such as Khloe Kardashian and the E News Girls: what was it like seeing your designs on celebrities?
NAVEN Girls: PR is a huge division with Naven. Our sales are directly influence by young Hollywood wearing our clothing. We work with a great PR Firm BGPR who works on a day to day basis, ensuring the proper management of our image and of our press. Knowing our PR efforts are paying off, and on a personal level, being recognized by our peers is the biggest compliment of all. The compliment that always warms our hearts and kicks it up a notch to the “warm fuzzys” is when a girl says “I’m a huge NAVEN fan”. When you put your sweat and tears into a product tailored specifically for a fashion forward customer, and the girl loves it! It gets us every time.
Q: When did you feel that you ‘made it’ as designers?
NAVEN Girls: Our first order with Neiman Marcus was the moment that we truly felt like accomplished designers. Moving from an emerging company to an established brand, distributed through majors like Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom’s, is a phase in our career that signifies a huge advancement for Naven as a respectable fashion house.
Q: Since you are based in LA, how would describe the style of LA girls?
NAVEN Girls: Being fueled by the sun, an LA girl isn’t afraid to brighten up her life with the incorporation of color in her wardrobe such as Naven’s signature Pop Pink, Chartreuse and Vegas Blue. She leans towards an easy breezy daytime look like Naven’s Kimono and Maxi Skirt, perfect for a stroll along Venice Boardwalk, but loves to glam it up with Naven’s Skinny Mini Skirt or Party Dress, for a hot night in Hollywood with girlfriends.
Q : Does the city influence your designs at all?
NAVEN Girls: We design based on what we want in our “dream closet,” and since we have been living in LA for the past 10 years this city of dreams has definitely influenced our sense of style and the clothing we design.
Q: Your dresses have a very feminine cut: what are your tips on how a woman should dress to maximize her curves?
NAVEN Girls: One thing we pride ourselves on as far as the fit of Naven clothing, is that we make our clothing for real girls. It’s easy to make a skinny model look good in anything, but with curves you really need to understand the female body and silhouette. We encourage high-waisted fits to bring in the waist line, and angular tops with shoulder pads to broaden the shoulders. Knowing which bits to cover, and which to accentuate, gives maximum sexiness and flattery to everybody.
Q: What has been your favorite or bestselling piece and why?
NAVEN Girls: Our customers love cocktail dresses. On our best-selling dress list is the Party Dress, Bombshell and Heartthrob.
Q: Can you give us a sneak peak of what’s in store for your Holiday Collection?
NAVEN Girls: Sequins, cut outs and faux furs.
Q: What is your must-have beauty product?
NAVEN girls : Red Lipstick!
NAVEN is so excited to be one of the featured designers at the Kardashian’s new DASH store for their Fashions Night Out Event Sept 7th. For great drinks, music, and huge sales come check it out!
