Shenova 2012

Bay Area Spring/Summer 2012

We did this shoot at the Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley, with model/actress Anya Bykova and photographer Peter Chang. I loved the mod future kind of setting, it perfectly complimented the clothes. Some of the shots remind me of scenes from 2001: A Space Odyssey, which just gives me goosebumps...

I did another new take on the Saturn Dress with a custom NASA print super saturated pink re-color spandex applique. The contrast black is eco bamboo stretch with a little shiny collar to tech it up a bit. I also made the hat and the Night Sky legging, the hat was inspired by a UFO.

The bamboo stretch is so soft against the skin.This design is a bit of a mix between clubwear and activewear, a Shenova classic style.

Pink Cosmonaut Hoodie: For those Bay Area Summer nights: double layer fleece, astronaut detailing. Fun reflective strip on arm and hood- great for bikers.

Custom Printed Spandex Robot Controller Dress. Liquid Black stretch contrast. Gear leggings.
I listened to a lot of very good techno while designing this outfit. I think it shows. :) Sometimes I'll hear one part of a song and a design will come to me in that very instance from a particular emotion it brings up. So then I spend the next few days or week just steeping in it. Gladly, the result of this one was just as fierce as the songs that fueled it.

"The Queen Bee Coat" For those times gotta let em know who's boss :) Black Velvet stretch  faux fur trim, crystal studded yin yang logo on back.

This next photoshoot we did with award-winning photographer Peter H. Chang, Models Laura Bee and Stephanie Patrick.

Since I am totally obsessed with Saturn (someone recently told me because my "age of Saturn" has returned) I am doing a mini-collection devoted just to it. I LOVE how the rings on the print interplay with the contours of the body. This dress is 100% eco friendly, custom NASA saturn print applique, bamboo rings on the front and back. The supersexy strappy back rings along the spine follow the energy points on the body. One of my absolute favs from this collection!

The Shen Hat- Russian style, made from faux fur with crystal logo. Crystal Magic gloves: superglam sheer with
crystals. Paired well with the Tibetan Tuxedo Bolero, Blue Nebula Dress and Yin Yang mask.


               Miss stars nightflight coat. Cotton and faux fur with quilt detailing. Galaxy jumpsuit

Galaxy Jumpsuit/Playsuit.

Deep black velvet Launch crop hoodie. Bamboo lined, supersoft with shuttle launch patch. Stars inside the hood.

This coat was very fun to make and wear. It's space-opera-luxe-to-the-max! It's fully fur lined with cotton print exterior and arm patches. The sleeves are a luxurious black velvet. Posh...

This is the Pink Wormhole dress, complete with portholes on front and back...for those days when you feel like transporting yourself to another fashion dimension! Inspired by activewear, this dress can be worn out to tea, to the gym and then to the club! The black side panels are supersoft bamboo cotton jersey.
