The new season 17 Project Runway contestant, Lela Christiana Orr and Lea Nyland Poulsen, are the dynamic duo responsible for the Eco-Luxury fashion brand, Ferrah Official. Ferrah showcased its #SCANDIWEST collection for Fashion X Celebrate Texas runway show during Austin Fashion Week 2019 season. Before I get started, let’s give it up for the home team, Dallas, TX. We’ve watched this brand grow since Collection, I remember when I first saw the fringe frock party dress. I immediately started shimmying like yaas, be free Queen!
Collection V, Scandi West is a 100% all natural and cruelty-free collection. Made ethically in Dallas,TX. Natural fabrics like peace silk, vegan leather, organic cotton and linen were used to create zero waste pieces. Fabulous while saving the planet, that is serious girl power, PERIOD! The designers drew from their family heritage, West Texas and Scandinavia’s Kingdom: Denmark. #SCANDIWEST
Each piece embodied a sense of ease, comfort, and liberation. Breezy dresses that would turn heads at the Derby. Free the nipple, Ferrah said! And we shall with look 1, a linen striped dress also made in black. Texas girls know the heat is nobody’s friend, especially in dry, West Texas! Light cottons and linens are a must for the Texas heat wave. Look 1 reminds us of the steel-hooped cage crinoline. A European undergarment used in the 1800’s for shape and volume. Many dresses were styled with Ferrah’s Mile-Long belt and West Bolero hats to keep that western vibe alive.
