JOVAN O'CONNOR 

The selection of pieces in this collection satisfies the wanderlust of a globetrotting girl on a Brazilian Holiday. Styles range from skimpy separates to a sensually show-stopping gown; basically every ensemble she would need from the beach to the samba club, to dinner dates and yacht parties. This girl is living the life one could only dream of and has a dream wardrobe...

ME & MOM

 My mother and I recently launched FDV Personal Collection, also dubbed Fason De Viv. My mother, born and raised in Haiti, has always been a talented seamstress. She fostered the love of fashion and power of self love from a young age. Together we create one of a kind pieces that inspire style and simplify choices. It's the most collaborative, partnership a designer could hope for. I envision the design and she makes it a reality through exquisite tailoring.

THE RAW SPA


Here at The Raw Spa, we are all about packing our products with natural goodness... but we like to have fun with them, too!! Our colorful products contain absolutely NO synthetic micas or coal tar dyes! And as for our complex, and often off-the-wall scents- those are almost entirely botanical, too! We know, because we hand blend them ourselves. We strive to keep our products "creepy-free", so you won't find any hidden parabens, aldehydes, petroleum derivatives, or phthalates in our products.   No matter your skin type - from oily or dry, to mature or damaged - we have something that has been formulated just for you!

TRINKET WITCH 

Trinket Witch provides handmade jewelry using precious and semi precious crystals in the forms of macrame, wire wrapping, and more. It's jewelry that not only looks good but makes you feel good, for each piece holds different crystals that attracts to all sorts and pulls different emotions from each of us. Crystal energy, healing, and meditation are a big part of Trinket Witch: the magic that resonates through each crystal can help aid the magic within us. It promotes a lifestyle of inner peace, meaningfulness, and positivity within yourself that can be reflected onto those around you. It's my way of creatively connecting to others to the deep place closer to their core and next to their heart, where magic can always be found.
