​After the hippie and boho trends of the ‘60s and the ‘70s, the flowers as accessories haven’t been that big anymore. However, they are coming back and they are coming back big time. On the other hand, you can have too much of a big thing and you don’t want to overdo it. It is important that you know what is enough and to know how to gracefully incorporate flowers into your wardrobe combinations.

Evening Look

This is the style that you can really rock with flowers, but you need to pay attention to the type of the flower that you are wearing. Red rose is an excellent choice if you are opting for a nice, little black dress. There are two ways in which you may come to wear a flower in this way. The first one is to attach it to the dress strap on your shoulder and the other one is to put flowers in your hair. The best hairdo for this is a nice bun that removes the most of your hair from your face with just a couple of slopes for the frame.

Business Look

This is the most difficult look and style for you to incorporate a flower in. However, it is not impossible, if you want it. One of the nice combinations in this way are a nice, dark, formal pants, white silk blouse and a blazer. The flower can easily find its place in this combination on the front of the blazer. With the choice of flower, tone it down a bit. A rose is too much, so choose something simple and discreet in white or pink tones. Gerbera may work just fine. 

Casual Look

This is where you can really do much when it comes to wearing flowers. When it comes to casual look, the flowers will look best in your hair. If you have the courage and you have the occasion, you can choose a nice dress and sandals and make a wreath of field flowers to wear it on your head. If that is too much, a single flower behind your ear is a nice option as well. Flowers add the notion of romance to you overall look, therefore, they seem a bit better with dresses and skirts than with pants and jeans when it comes to causal look.

Beach Look

Wreath of fresh flowers will look absolutely amazing while you wear it on the beach. A nice, big, bright flower in your casual and a bit messy bun will be a head-turner on the beach. The choice of flowers for the beach is limitless. You can make them big, bright and cheerful as much as you can. Ladies swimwear can have floral designs as well. However, if you wear real flowers, perhaps it is best if you avoid them in your hair as well. Another amazing way to rock those flowers on the beach is to use one of those awesome beach hats and put some flowers on them.

Flowers are coming back and they are absolutely gorgeous. Have some style and know when is enough, and you can give that romantic note to almost anything you wear. Have fun making these combinations and enjoy the beauty of natural flowers in your hair.

Tell us about your company
​We mostly make underwear and bra's but are slowly expanding.  Owned and designed by
Rebecca Delgado, who takes great care ensuring Piper Marie's apparel is a truly luxurious and couture product. We use the highest quality fabric for the ultimate comfort and durability. Along with organics we also work with vintage fabrics. Always the perfect fit in all sizes. Although Piper Marie is still mostly handmade, in order to better meet the needs of our customers, for some products we are partnering with a sustainable manufacture in the USA that will construct them with the same love we do.

As a company, we believe that it’s important to be responsible and make a positive impact on our community and the world at large. We do this by trying to reduce our carbon footprint, sourcing the majority of our materials from American companies and working with other companies that support their employees and communities.

To help normalize breastfeeding we have the "I'm the Pacifier" campaign. This is something Rebecca feels very strongly about and she knows that with Piper Marie she can help the fight. Learn more at http://pipermarie.com/imthepaci/

​What are the challenges of being eco-friendly in your field?
Some challenges of using eco-fabrics is how limited the designs can be. There isn't a lot of prints available. Another problem we run into is that the majority of our fabrics can't be made in the USA so we have to import them. 

In what way does your product stand out from the pack?
PM stands out with our designs. We aren't the normal eco-fashion line, we have a sexy sweet feel. 

What other plans and initiatives do you have/ what can we expect from you in the future?
Right now we are running an indiegogo fund to help expand our current line. We are hoping to offer our newest product this spring. 'The Pantie Drawer' where you will get a pair in the mail every month! 

Where can people get your products/service?
Piper Marie is working on getting our new online store open by the end of February but in the mean time you can shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/PiperMarieDesigns

"​We offer one of the largest selection of artistes in London and have a huge databases of different ethnic backgrounds and ages." 

Can you tell us a little bit more about the Source Model Agency, a brief history, ethos, and how you work?
Source Models was set up in 2004 by 3 friends with Paula Harrison and Dave Gibbs managing the business day to day. Paula came from an agency background while Dave had spent many years in Sales and Advertising. The aim was set up an honest and transparent agency with no up-front joining fees who could offer exceptional customer service to both artistes and clients. We would pay our models within 5 working days from client payment and ensure we managed and run our business within Equity guidelines. We stand by that ethos 10 years later and are remained within the industry of being a fair and honest agency.

We represent models, actors, presenters and stylists on a non-sole agency contract and we take a commission from all work we generate. We have a great website with over 600 artistes on our books and we ensure we represent all types of people from kids to OAP’s and offer a great selection of ethnic backgrounds and skills... our clients are casting Directors, Advertising agencies, Photographers and Productions companies and our people appear in TV commercials, on websites, Press ads and print media as well as attend events and launches.

What are the challenges of being eco-friendly in your industry? Do you have any initiatives in this area at all?
The massive growth in our on-line business has had a major effect to our eco initiatives, we no longer keep a database of models books and cards, all our artistes can be viewed on-line with all models cards available via a downloadable pdf facility. We have cut down considerably the amount of travelling we do as an agency and will always try to communicate now via, email, text and Skype.

We are currently in the process of converting or systems to a ‘cloud based’ business which in turn will reduce the amount of power we use and the amount of office space is required.

In what way does your London model agency stand out or compare with the competition and other modelling agencies in London?
We offer one of the largest selection of artistes in London and have a huge databases of different ethnic backgrounds and ages. From a models point of view we pay very quickly and do not charge any up-front fees. We also subsidise photo-shoots to ensure no model pays over the odds to get started.

What are your plans for the Source London Model agency for the next 12 months or so?
We are currently launching a full ‘Mobile’ version of our website to make it easier for our clients to book and view ‘on the fly’ from smartphones and tablets. We aim to finish going cloud based and introduce more home-working opportunities for our staff

Where can potential clients find out more about you in order to make a booking in 2015?
The best bet is to look at a new website which we are currently developing to better target London clients.  The website is still a little bit under construction, but is available on Source Models London.  This is a new website designed to complement our existing main one, and is simply for clients who are operating in the London area.

​Can men really get gift buying completely wrong? In searching for this answer, both UK and US women have been surveyed to establish that 1 in 5 men find it difficult to know what suits their partner and still have no idea what dress size their partner is.

Buying a present for yourself? I am sure secretly more than a handful of you have had to do this once in a while. What do you buy the women who has everything? Perfume, Lingerie, a Novel? Sadly these are all too often over done. Its time to think out of the box and opt for a truly luxurious handcrafted gift. It doesn't matter what occasion you are looking to help your man buy for, the most important thing should be the person in mind.  Men find it hard to buy gifts because they just don't shop around enough to understand what is available and therefore, easily drawn into seductive TV adverts. If you are on the receiving end and looking for a gift that you would love your partner to buy for you. Then the point is to hint and give him clues. If this is something you have do occasionally, beware not to accidentally slip the odd gift into your shopping basket. Here are a few exceptionally unique luxury gift ideas for you to hint.
 
Handcrafted Wool Cape with Silver Fox Fur trims
If you are not against wearing fur, then a fur trim cape will see your through any season night or day. A beautiful crafted cape is everything a women should feel; warmth and glamorous. 

Personalised chocolate box 
Ever heard the saying: Chocolates are a girls best friend? The online confectionery market is growing and offer any message to be displayed on the chocolates. Not only the perfect gift for valentines day, but any occasion and anyone who has a love for chocolate.
Personalised bath robes

Have your name or nickname on your gown which you will never grow out of. When a gift has thought put into it, it really shows. There is nothing better than a snug cosy and warm blanket feeling of a bath robe.

A dozen handcrafted paper roses
Flowers are the essence of beauty and although, they can be dried, don't always look the same.  If you could keep your flowers, would you? You can now purchase bespoke printed paper roses. Each petal is carefully made from pages of a book. They look extraordinary and will never wilt and nor will you have to throw them away. Choose one or a bouquet. 
 
Your song

Everyone has their favourite song, but what about getting your favourite song framed? All this requires is notifying the company of your song and choosing the final frame requirements and voilà, you can let everyone see and sing your favourite wedding song or even childhood song.
 
Luxury Womens Alpaca Fur Scarves
When the weather isn't so warm, there is nothing better than to wrap up warm. If accessories are your favourite clothing accessory, then step it up a level and choose a natural eco friendly hand-crafted scarves and wrist warmer to complement your outfit

"​The hallmark of our brand is our eco-friendly fabric which feels as good as it looks!"  

​TELL US ABOUT YOUR COMPANY:
JWalking Designs make eco-friendly, funky and functional fitness fashions for women and men. From our 3-pocket women's active skirts and leggings, to our men's running kilts and button-down, wide-collared shirt for running and golf, we want you to have the self-confidence to get out and get active in style!

WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES OF BEING SUSTAINABLE/ECO IN YOUR FIELD?
Our products are Made in the USA from eco-friendly, PET - recycled plastic bottles turned into fabric.  Being responsible to our country and our planet is very important to us, but they come at an added expense.  We feel it is worth it.

HOW DOES THE JWALKING DESIGNS' BRAND STAND OUT?
The hallmark of our brand is our eco-friendly fabric which feels as good as it looks!  Our skirts, shirts, kilts and leggings are all American-made from 84% PET - recycled plastic bottles that are cut into shards of plastic that are then melted and turned into strands of plastic fiber.  That fiber is then transformed to make anything from outdoor carpets to the fabric that makes our fitness fashions! 

The 84% PET keeps our active wear lightweight, breathable and comfortable in both hot and cold temperatures.  The 16% Spandex keeps our products flexible and combined, they are washable!

On our white eco-friendly fabric, we print our fun and funky patterns and plaids.  We want you to look good and feel good while doing good for the environment. 

FUTURE PLANS FOR OUR ECO-FRIENDLY BRAND?
At upcoming races, expos and events, I plan to have water bottle recycle collection bins, where I will send the collected bottles to companies that repurpose them into eco-friendly fiber for fabric. Besides giving people a place to properly recycle the plastic and keeping them out of our landfills and oceans, it helps fuel our fabric source.  Win-Win!

HOW TO FIND US:
Check out our online stores at:
http://jwalkingdesigns.com and at @Amazon www.amazon.com/shops/jwalkingdesigns

We offer Free Shipping to customers across the United States and to our military serving overseas.

Also, look for our plaid, patterned and pocketed skirts and kilts at races through the U.S.!  Our CEO races often, carrying 10% off coupons in one of the three secure pockets in her @JWalkingDesigns "Mad About Plaid" purple running skirt!  Stop her and say hi!
