A Family Affair: Fashion's Lizzy and Darlene Okpo

Lizzy and Darlene Okpo, designers of the label William Okpo

There's nothing sweeter than witnessing sisters who are really close and share the same passion. The Bed-Stuy Brooklynites, Lizzy and Darlene Okpo, have the cutest relationship. They're the creative director and designer, respectively, for William Okpo, a fashion label named in honor of their father, which was created for the carefree spirit.

During a recent interview, here's what they had to say:

Darlene's constant source of style inspiration: "Aaliyah in the ‘90s! Tight tops, loose-fitting pants, I can’t get enough.”

Lizzy's horrible style secret: “Laziness is my weakness! I tend to wear wrinkled silk tops only because I'm too lazy to iron anything. Also, white clothes just aren’t for me — I'm too messy!”

According to Darlene, as kids, they fought over: "Personal space: she used to follow me wherever I went. It was so damn annoying!"

According to Lizzy, as kids, they fought over:  "My stuff! She would never share my toys!"


Designer Monika Chiang glamorizes the tee and jeans

Every fashionista wants to stand out in the crowd with custom accessories. New York City-based business woman Monika Chiang can make that happen. Dubbed a fashion muse and the love interest of Tory Burch's ex, retailer J. Christopher Burch, who founded C. Wonder, she's the new boss in fashion.

Her boutique in SoHo is decorated in forest green and has an elegant seating area; a rich assortment of glam goods, including sexy attire, vertiginous platform shoes, custom jewelry and metal-studded bags.

Stars like Eve, Halle Berry, and Kourtney Kardashian have been seen sporting Monika Chiang.

My fave piece is the gorgeous glovelette ($275) in gleaming gold plate (shown above) or silver plate, which connects a dozen rings with a cascade of delicate chains.


Watch: 'Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's' trailer


 

It’s the most mythic of all American emporiums – a one-of-a-kind Manhattan institution where over the last century; the view of fashion has been transformed into modern art. But behind Bergdorf Goodman’s magical window displays lies a very real world where the rich and famous wield their power and eccentricity, where young and talented designers have their dreams granted and denied, and where money and ambition co-mingle with radical ideas of beauty and provocative style. Now, for the first time, audiences get a chance to peek inside this world, as Matthew Miele’s Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s explores the history, inner workings and untold stories behind the store’s rise from a modest ladies’ tailor shop to a mirror of contemporary culture.

The legends, the parties, the windows, the women, the buyers and shoppers all come to life in this portrait of a realm where creativity and commerce collide. The 111-year history of Bergdorf Goodman echoes American history as the store comes of age. Miele traces the tale from the store’s immigrant start to its merger with the celebrity culture of the 50s and 60s to its now vital role cultivating the design prodigies fueling a global fashion obsession.

Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s reveals the store after-hours, introducing the people and personalities who make it tick -- from fashion director Linda Fargo, the Bergdorf’s gate keeper who has the power to make and break the careers of new designers; to window decorator David Hoey who turns Christmas displays into gallery-worthy exhibits; to personal shopper Betty Halbreich, who doles out her no-holds-barred style advice to movie stars, politicians and fashionistas from around the world.

At the heart of it all are a series of funny and revealing stories from a star-studded list including Giorgio Armani, Candice Bergen, Manolo Blahnik, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Naeem Khan, Michael Kors, Karl Lagerfeld, Lauren Bush Lauren, Susan Lucci, Christian Louboutin, Catherine Malandrino, Gilles Mendel, Isaac Mizrahi, Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen, Thakoon Panichgul, Joan Rivers and Jason Wu, among others.
