Meet the Croquis

Written by , Posted in Alina's World, Behind the Scenes, New Arrivals

Cover1 Meet the Croquis

It’s time to add a creative flare to your wardrobe and start shopping for one of this season’s most popular trend: art in fashion! Designers all the way from Hermes to Céline showed colorful,  printed versions of beautiful art and imagery printed creatively onto their latest collections. So of course, we had to come up with one of our very own! For Peace Love World it is important for every item to represent authenticity and have a valuable meaning.Our incredible Graphic Designer, Amanda Garcia, put her very own fresh spin on this special swath of fabric and created these amazing croquis. These accessories for spring have recently arrived, and to say we are utterly obsessed with it, would be an absolute understatement!

 

Amanda Meet the Croquis

Where are you from?

Miami, FL baby!

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Free spirit

Artistic

Loyal

When did you know that you wanted to work in the fashion industry?

I knew in high school. I was shopping for a prom dress, when I walked into this store that sold one of kind pieces from local artist. I tried on this dress that looked interesting, and once I had it on I felt so confident. It was that moment that I knew I wanted to design clothes. For me it was all about the emotion I felt and wanting everyone to feel the same. I went to class the next day and asked my art teacher what I needed to do to be a fashion designer.

What would the title of your autobiography be?

The quote I have tattooed on my arm “ not all those who wander are lost.”

Describe a day in the life of you.

I first start my day with a 5-minute cuddle session with my Bi Polar dog Roly. Mornings are when he’s the sweetest, so I take advantage. I make coffee that I ONLY have two sips from and leave the rest…maybe three. I’m a bit of a weirdo but I find a moment to say positive affirmations in the mirror. If I forget I say them at home, I say them in the mirror of my car. I swear it works.

I make my way to the PLW headquarters where the team and I make magic happen. The best part of my day is when I get to Crossfit and WOD. Working out is a huge part of my life and the next best thing to designing and my art.

What is your favorite part of being on the Peace Love World team?

The team. I’m surrounded by my closest friends everyday. The creative environment we have going on there is truly special

Peace Love World has a variety of collections all different with one common message. Which collection do you think represents you the most?

It’s hard to choose just one. They all represent me on way or another. I’m more drawn to the AV line and L2L light collections.

Is there a specific symbol that you connect with?

Love. Love is everything.

 What is on the top of your bucket list?

Rebuild a 1969 Stingray Corvette! My dream car.

Where are you most inspired/ what inspires you the most?

I find a lot of inspiration in the things I love art, film, books etc. Being outdoors and in nature really opens up doors creatively. People can be a huge inspiration for me. I like to be around free thinkers and artists. Often this creates and amazing flow of inspiration that bounces back and forth between people or groups.

What’s an example of a moment in your life when you followed your instincts—and it paid off?

I’m big on following my gut. I believe your soul knows better. I can’t think of anything specific.

When and where do you feel like your most comfortable, genuine self?

I feel most comfortable in the art studio I’m slowly building. It’s a space i can be completely myself. Only positive energy lives there. I am free from fear, and completely at peace.

What’s the one piece of clothing that you would consider your signature?

The Gabi peak skirt. I always knot it to give it a draped look. Some combat boots and stack of wooden bracelets.

What is the last book you read?

The Four Agreements.

What is your favorite part of living in Miami?

I have a strong connection with the water. I’ve always told myself I will always live near the ocean. I love that the beach is my backyard.

Where are you from? 

Born in Miami and grew up in El Salvador.

 Describe yourself in 3 words.

Wanderlust

Friendly

Passionate

 When did you know that you wanted to work in the fashion industry? 

It’s hard to pinpoint a specific moment where I realized that I wanted to work in the fashion industry. I would say for me, I have always loved playing dress up and experimenting with different trends; fashion has always been my passion.

 What would the title of your autobiography be? 

Life is Good.

 Describe a day in the life of you. 

I wake up and immediately have my cup of coffee (without caffeine, I would not make it through my day!). I spend the next 40 minutes having breakfast, packing my lunch and getting ready for work. Once at PLW Headquarters, my day can take various turns…. between approving artwork, creating graphics or any miscellaneous work that needs to be done that day. After work, I tend to break a sweat with a good class of cross fit. From here, I finally head home, cook, have dinner and try to be in bed by 11PM.

 What is your favorite part of being on the Peace Love World team? 

I enjoy being able to share positive messages to the world through designs.

 Peace Love World has a variety of collections all different with one common message.  Which collection do you think represents you the most?

Classic Tees.  I am obsessed with tops, for their fabric and simplicity. I love that you can dress them down or dress them up, which I am all for. (T-shirts are a must in my closet!)

 Is there a specific symbol that you connect with? 

A heart/love, because without love you have nothing. Love is what its all about!

 What is on the top of your bucket list? 

Working in the fashion industry but would also love to find an outlet to give back to my country and its people. To me, giving back is pivotal, even if that means being kind to the people around you.

 Where are you most inspired/ what inspires you the most? 

There is nothing that brings me more joy than traveling and exploring new places, new foods and new cultures; “Travel is the only thing you buy in life that makes you richer “- unknown. It is traveling that I find myself the happiest and the most inspired.

 What’s an example of a moment in your life when you followed your instincts—and it paid off?

Again traveling… Sometimes finding the perfect moment to travel is not as easy with our hectic schedules… But taking that spontaneous move to just book a trip always pays off in my book…Spain turned out to be the best idea this past fall!

 When and where do you feel like your most comfortable, genuine self? 

Home, surrounded by my family.

 What’s the one piece of clothing that you would consider your signature? 

A Blazer…

 What is the last book you read? 

Hard to admit but 50 Shades of Grey.

What is your favorite part of living in Miami? 

The sun and that everyone is from somewhere else in Miami, makes me feel a little closer to home knowing that most people are like me; with one foot in each place.

How I Learned a Little Bit of Everything

Describe a day in the life of you.

Wake up, get my kids ready for school, get to work, pick up my girls from dance, check homework, spend time with family. I then try to read a book or watch my recorded shows (I love Mindy Project and New Girl) in order to relax. The next day I wake up remind myself how blessed I am and do it all over again.

What is your favorite part of being on the Peace Love World team?

My co-workers. They are amazing. They inspire and motivate me every day.

It’s hard to say…I love to mix and match using pieces from all the collections. Every collection we make has incredible style and is comfortable to wear which for me is perfect. I am always running around and I like to feel and look great.

Is there a specific symbol that you connect with?

LOVE. It’s the most significant to me. Love above all!

What is on the top of your bucket list?

More traveling! I would love to see more and show my kids this beautiful world we live in.

Where are you most inspired/ what inspires you the most?

My inspiration sometimes comes from the most unexpected places. I get inspired at random times and in random places. I try to always have something where I can write down my thoughts or take a picture of something great. Usually when I get inspired I can’t wait to get to a computer and start designing.

What’s an example of a moment in your life when you followed your instincts—and it paid off?

I followed my instincts when I agreed to marry my husband after only 6 months of knowing him. I know! What was I thinking?? But…almost 11 years later, we have two beautiful girls and a life that I never imagined.

After attending college in NYC and working full time in midtown, living where I always wanted, i found myself at a point where I needed to change life up a bit.

The scarf is a comfortable, white, chic scarf featuring all the beautiful women from the Design Team as well as visionary, creator, and designer Alina Villasante. All the stylish girls were sketched as croquis, which are rough preliminary drawings or sketches, and printed on the scarf. Amanda was able to perfectly capture each one of their every-day styles and personify who they really are. Her work made the scarf ultimately come to life!The Croqui design is also available as a casual, lightweight Tote. The Tote is also one of this spring’s trendiest bags, and the palette of the season features whites, blacks, and creams. In this special place, we call Peace Love World, is where all the magic happens; and if one thing is undeniable about the Design Team that Alina Villasante has created, is that everyone is inspired by Love and being able to share such positive messages with others through their designs.

Peace Love Oprah

Written by , Posted in Alina's World, Behind the Scenes, Celebrity Sightings, Events, Featured on

 

OprahSocial 1024x1024 Peace Love Oprah Peace Love World is thrilled to announce the creation of the “Peace Love Oprah” collection available exclusively for guests attending Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend multi-city tour event this fall throughout the United States. The “Peace Love Oprah” collection features women’s apparel and accessories, including tees, tote bags, a hoodie and iPhone case that combine Peace Love World’s signature peace and love graphics with Oprah Winfrey’s iconic “signature.”

The two brands together is an organic collaboration that makes sense on every level. Each brand represents positivity and soulful inspiration.  We both have a mission of love and empowerment. For Alina Villasante, this collaboration has been a dream come true – something she manifested through her intentions, she put this goal out into the universe!  Like Oprah said, “It is very true that the way you think creates reality for your self, there are other factors going on, so it’s not everything but you can really change your own reality based on the way that you think.” Oprah’s team selected Alina and Peace Love World to design the official tour merchandise because it was the right combination of fashion with a message for Oprah’s Life You Want Tour. And we couldn’t be more thrilled! Alina Villasante hosted 3 Peace Love World fashion shows on the O Town stage last Friday in Atlanta and will continue to do this in select cities throughout the tour, to kick-off the weekend experience of powerful transformation. O Town is a pop-up town square filled with booths, lounges, and photo kiosks available for all event attendees to enjoy throughout Friday from 10am-6pm and Saturday from 7am-4pm.The tour will now travel to seven more cities across the country to inspire thousands of people who are looking for a message and inspiration on how to create the life they want. The tour ends its run the weekend of November 14-15 in San Jose, California.  Each city will be a full weekend of positive energy, meditation, motivation and inspiration for YOU to write your own story – live the life you want! On Friday evening, attendees are treated to a welcome by Oprah.  Saturday is a full day workshop with Oprah and her trailblazers such as Deepak Chopra or Mark Nepo, Elizabeth Gilbert, Rob Bell, and Iyanla Vanzant. You will only get back as much as you put in.

Peace Love Oprah merchandise will be available exclusively to The Life You Want Weekend Tour ticket holders in all eight cities beginning on Friday, September 5th in Atlanta. Peace Love Oprah merchandise ranges from $20-$60. Tickets are available at www.oprahweekend.com.

Kindness is Cool

Written by , Posted in Alina's World, Behind the Scenes, Giveaways, New Arrivals, Press, Video Posts

Kindness is a quality that a person possesses. It is warm, friendly, generous and most importantly considerate. By definition, cool means fashionably attractive or impressive therefore, cool is a personal opinion. In today’s generation, there is a significant amount of pressure to be “cool” in order to fit in. This pressure can lead to self-doubt, judgment and ultimately bullying. Unfortunately, throughout every stage of life we learn that some people believe that being cool is acting in a way that consciously or subconsciously may hurt others. It is important that we practice kindness and make it a habit. It is essential to the future that we teach the younger generations that kindness is cool.

In honor of our  back2school campaign and those who have been affected by bullying, our staff has taken the time to pledge to be kind. Join our team and take the pledge. Those who honor kindness with us will enter for a chance to win a Be Kind Hoodie and Pant.

Enter below by commenting how you will pledge to be kind.

Fall is a time of transition. As the Peace Love World story unfolds, I am always looking for new avenues of inspiration. For this collection, I looked for the spiritual connection between love, the cosmos and the power of nature. I spent many nights looking at the stars, thinking about how we are all connected on a universal level. I chose symbols and words that express inner strength and cosmic love and brought it all back to Earth by putting them on elegant, cultured fabrics. This translated into beautiful apparel fit for falling in love, feeling free and harnessing the power within. There’s a lot going on beneath the surface, too. Many pieces contain hidden messages and symbols sewn and printed on the inside for personal inspiration -just for you- in the hopes that you’ll feel connected to us, to the Universe and, most importantly, to your soul. Love is the power that connects us all to each other and to the Universe itself. ~Alina Villasante

JM4A9773 682x1024 Meet Our Staff

1. What is your favorite item from Peace Love World?

 It’s hard to pick one. So I’ll name a couple. The Metro Hoodie and the Hatoa Bag. The Metro Hoodie goes with almost any ensemble and the pima cotton is super comfortable. The Hatoa Bag is sick. I use it every day for work and the gym…and if I run away to the Keys for the weekend or something. It’s awesome. I get compliments on it all the time.

2. What celebrity would you dress in Peace Love World?

 Neil Patrick Harris. Because he’s my doppelgänger and I like how I look in PLW stuff. Is that selfish? Maybe.

3. What do love about Alina?

Alina has a big personality. She’s always open to ideas and her input is always on point. And when you’re working with her, you feel like the project- whatever it may be- is elevated to a higher plane. She just has this magic touch. I can’t explain it! She also has this way of bringing out the best in everyone around her, myself included.

A FAMILY THAT WORKS TOGETHER BUILDS TOGETHER
