In a sea of dainty and delicate, a Dina Mackney Design is unapologetically bold and dramatic, while also capturing a timeless aesthetic that easily transitions from season to season. With interesting stones, contrasting metals, and distinctive shapes, my designs for Fall 2015 are no different. While on a trip to Dallas, Texas to kick off the fall trunk show season at the Neiman Marcus in Willowbend, I was invited to appear on the Good Morning Texas show to discuss trends for this coming fall. You can watch the video here.
My favorite trend of this season is Fringe! It can be seen everywhere: in sweaters by Adam Lippes, handbags by Burberry, and shoes by Chloe and Christian Louboutin One of my favorite ways to utilize fringe is to show it cascading on earrings. In addition to the very popular pyrite and garnet fringe earrings, this season, I’ve continued that silhouette with the inclusion of gold and multi-colored sapphire. New for this year, I have also created two stunning fringed designs that are featured in select Neiman Marcus stores nationwide and online. First is the Pyrite Fringe Necklace which features multiple strands of pyrite that loop around the neck in varying lengths. The effect is a one of a kind piece that can be used to create a mock neckline on your favorite sleeveless sheath dress. This piece highlights a few of my signature touches including a gold vermeil bar incrusted with garnet. My second fringe design is one of my personal favorites: the Shanti Necklace. Coming in a variety of colors and wielding a fun tassel, this piece fits in perfectly with Fall’s 70s, bohemian aesthetic. Try pairing my Rainbow Shanti with an off the shoulder peasant blouse and your favorite denim for an effortless weekend outfit.
