We were so fortunate to check out some designs by Minika Ko, an emerging designer who just showed during NYFW. Her new KOVASKY line includes all-white stain-resistant garments. Yes, white AND stain resistant! And now, for Liliya’s review from Miami (pre-Irma)…

Minika sent me three pieces from her current collection. I was instantly smitten with the white dress. It’s style is sort of a mix of Audrey Hepburn with a bit of Jackie O: simple, yet elegant. It’s also very sexy without being revealing.

I absolutely love the fact it’s all white. The dress looks great with flats or heels and makes for a convenient day-to-night look. The fabric is a bit warm for warm Miami weather. But it’s very comfortable for evening time.

I chose to wear the dress with salmon-colored Prada heels. Although the piece would look great with all types and colors of shoes, I wanted to add a pop of color and make the look more dynamic. I also like how white and light salmon compliment a Florida tan.

I styled the suit with a faux pearl choker and bracelet from Zara that remind me a lot of Chanel. I really love how the gold tone of the jewelry matches the gold details (like a gold chain) on the silk Joie top I wore.

As soon as I saw these jewelry pieces (a long time ago), I knew I had to have them. I was with my friend Yana. After seeing how excited I was about them, Yana was like – fine, I’ll get them too. She still calls them our Chanel pieces.

When I first saw the suit, it seemed a bit tricky to pull off. I wasn’t thrilled about the length of the pants. They didn’t seem full nor length on me but instead, hit my leg at a spot in the middle. I thought that maybe I was a bit short for them. But then I saw them on the MINIKA KO WEBSITE. And I realized how beautiful they look with heels. (The length is just right.) The high waist and lines also really compliment my figure.

Note from Janea – I just returned to the west coast after photographing attendees of New York Fashion Week. One trend on the Spring 2018 runways and the street now is WHITE-WHITE-WHITE. There’s no better time to check out MINIKA KO!
