SUMMER’S STYLE

Our stylish on-the-go Dallas correspondent Cynthia Smoot is as busy as ever with the city’s robust event and fashion scene. Join us as we see the latest and greatest they have to offer

FRINGE FEVER

Shona Gilbert’s jewelry is a chic combination of Boho-chic and uptown sophistication. SHŌNA’s latest collection, BollyRocks, reflects the escapist world of its namesake. Colorful suede tassels strung on wood beads start at $175 and are available at Abi Ferrin’s flagship boutique in West Village. Her luxury line of silk tassels with diamond accents can be purchased online or at Studio Sebastian in Snider Plaza.

BEADED DREAMS

In 2011, Esé Azénabor traded a predictable life in accounting for the wild world of fashion. Flash-forward to 2015 and her couture work has already graced some of Hollywood’s biggest names including Vivica A. Fox and Pat Smith at this year’s Emmitt Smith Celebrity Invitational Gala. At this year’s DIFFA fundraiser, I was lucky enough to wear her Nemesis white jumpsuit with gold brocade trim. The outfit was such a showstopper, KTXD’s The Broadcast spent three minutes the next morning talking about it. View more of her stunning work at Eseazenabor.com

AWESOMELY AUSSIE

Move over Tony and Candace Romo, your title as Dallas’ cutest couple is being challenged. Meet Australian import, Aaron Hendra, and wife Tiffany. It’s hard to resist Aaron’s Aussie accent, awesome head of hair and rock star moves but when he lets loose on the stage and croons You Make Me Feel Like I’m Alive (written for Tiffany), you can’t help but fall madly in love.

Tiffany’s personal blog, Sanctuary of Style, teaches women how to hone their inner and outer beauty to harness their personal power. This dynamic duo recently partnered with designer Abi Ferrin to hold a benefit concert and fashion presentation at the House of Blues where proceeds from the event will be used to build state-of-the-art off grid solar farms in the various East African orphanages, schools and facilities built by their friend, Sam Childers. The Aaron Hendra Project’s latest CD Octobersound is available on iTunes. For more info visit Aaronhendra.com and Sanctuaryofstyle.net
