Toronto, ONT – Canada/January 18, 2016 – FERI DESIGNER LINES (www.feridesignerlines.com), a subsidiary of Global Wealth Trade (GWT), announced recently its bid to expand their various luxury collections and evolve them into a total lifestyle brand.

This bold move, kicked off by the recent introduction of an upscale footwear collection for both women and men, is in line with GWT founder Ramin Mesgarlou’s long-term vision for FERI DESIGNER LINES, which already offers impeccably handcrafted handbags, wallets, precision timepieces, opticals, sunglasses and unique fragrances.

Targeting the luxury market with retail price points upwards of $92K for specialty time pieces, the industry observers and analysts are expressing enthusiastic anticipation over how the company is raising its stakes in the fashion market with a continued strategically implemented roll out of new products and increased coverage across top sales territories in North America, Europe and Asia.

“In our effort to deliver a level of excellence that our clients have come to expect from the brand, we were very deliberate in bringing out each collection after very careful development and planning,” says CEO and Founder of GWT/FERI Ramin Mesgarlou. “Now we’re at a point where our design and manufacturing capabilities are among the finest in the luxury category. FERI DESIGNER LINES is aimed at an affluent clientele who have very exacting tastes and standards and we aim to provide an array of products that specifically cater to their entire lifestyle.”

Mr. Mesgarlou, who hails from a family of distinguished jewelers since the late 1800s, initially launched FERI as a line of exquisite fine jewelry. The immediate success of that debut collection prompted the entrepreneur to gradually introduce new merchandise catering specifically to a rarefied segment of shoppers. His extensive experience in the luxury market was a perfect fit in being able to provide the kind of refined fashions and superior quality sought by discriminating clients with the ultimate goal of developing FERI DESIGNER LINES into an all-encompassing and prestigious lifestyle brand.

The entire FERI DESIGNER LINES collections are available online at www.feridesignerlines.com and by appointment with certified GWT Luxury Consultants.

Kendall Jenner & Lauren Conrad Calling 2016 Fashion Trends

Kendall Jenner and Lauren Conrad Are Calling It: These Are the Outfits You’ll Be Wearing in the Future

1 Day Ago from Glamour Fashion

For a quick peek into what trends we can expect to see a lot of in 2016, there are no ladies better to look to than Lauren Conrad and Kendall Jenner. Both have carved out major careers based on their style sense, including stints as designers: LC presented her first-ever runway show during New York Fashion Week last September, and Kendall’s stayed busy working with sister Kylie on collaborations for brands like Topshop (and maybe working on something with BFF Cara Delevingne). As such, when these two offer up a trend forecast, we listen.

Lauren shared her picks with Who What Wear while revealing her New Year’s fashion resolution (“I’m making a promise to myself to add some more fun pieces to my wardrobe”). As a characteristically feminine dresser, Mrs. Tell plans on using slip dresses, maxis, and pleats for a girly vibe this year.

“A slinky, silky slip dress is all you need to feel sexy. It’s as simple as that,” she writes, naming pleats and maxi dresses as more romantic outfit options. Slipper mules, billowy bell and trumpet sleeves, and suede are all off-duty elements she’s going to incorporate, as well as a longtime favorite that’s set to be big again.

“I love wearing metallics in any way, shape, or form. When I saw that mixed metallics are in this year, I started pulling all of my shiny, shimmery pieces out of my closet to prepare.” While we can’t imagine LC saying no to a full-on metallic look, she’s also ready with an entry-level suggestion. Start experimenting by going small, adding in a spot of shine via a bag or shoe.

Compared to Lauren’s picks, Kendall’s feel decidedly more model-off-duty cool.

“I know there will be a bunch more trends I’ll try out this year, but I narrowed down my faves that I want to wear way more, like leopard, fringe and sneakers,” Kendall wrote on her site,mentioning suede, flared jeans, and chokers as other looks she’s planning on rocking frequently.

The model and reality star also dished on some items she’s ready to see retire (“butt-baring shorts and slogan shirts”) and shared her feelings on maxis. “Maxiskirts depend on the outfit, but they definitely have to be sleek and polished.”

The 10 trends that’ll see you starting 2016 in style

Here we go, another year, another set of fashion rules. But like 6-year-olds, we secretly love rules, even if they just give us the opportunity to kick against them. We need to get dressed and on these pages we like to get dressed. While I’m not someone who thinks we should slavishly stick to the trends, or spend a fortune on our wardrobes, feeling part of the zeitgeist  gives me a kick. I want to do style in my own way but we all need ideas  to throw around – and reject if it comes to it. That’s where the seasonal trends come in.

Here’s a fast track guide to skimming through what the designers are deeming fresh for next season and how to make their big ideas work for you.

1. Beware the frill

First off, a warning. Romance is back in fashion and nothing says romantic like a frill, apparently. Or actually, loads of them. Do not let your head be turned. In reality, only pudgy one year olds and 19th century Southern Belles can pull off head-to-toe frilliness. So by all means invest in something with a bit of undulating prettiness to it but at the same time, keep your head, be restrained. Choose something that sends the message I am romantic, but I ain’t nobody’s fool.

2. Dream in cream

Do not dismiss this out of hand, but if you’re going to buy one dress, consider a cream one. It is not as indulgent and impractical as it sounds. Like gold earrings, cream will illuminate the complexion. Perhaps because of that, as I discovered recently, a cream dress wins you loads of compliments and I’m not above those. The dress I was wearing was a mid-length knitted dress by Uniqlo and Lemaire, designed by minimalist Christophe Lemaire for the high street brand, and definitely ticking the chic but cosy box. Cream wool is great for winter and cream crepe is to die for any time of year. Just sip your cappuccino at arm’s length.

3. Earn your stripes

A stripey jumper fit for a Rainbow presenter has already been a sell out of Gucci’s pre-spring  collection. You needn’t go so far but let it be said that a bold striped top – be it knit or a structured shell top – is a handy tool to have at one’s disposal. Stripes somehow make you look like you’ve made an effort – even though everyone knows you didn’t draw/paint/assemble the stripes yourself. Cheering too, on a dull January day.

4. Play a longer game

Being a fan of the long skirt (and not a fan of my pesky short legs) it is pleasing for me to see mid-length and ankle length dresses playing a strong game this season. It’s not as though I’d suddenly start hiking up my dresses if the catwalks decreed it a must, but it’s pathetically gratifying and a bit of a relief when your own tastes chime with the catwalks. At Erdem, Chloe and Oscar de la Renta long skirts were  myriad, particularly for occasion wear. But I’d argue that a dark maxi and a roomy cashmere sweater is just perfect for a low-key, cosy weekend night out – the sartorial equivalent of a shepherds pie. Possibly not the metaphor the creative director Oscar de la Renta was aiming for, but althougth our hearts may always reside on the Upper East Side, sadly we do not.

5. Forget Laura Ingalls Wilder

The gardener Piet Oudolf was the man responsible for us all swapping our Italianate terraces for prairies and wild meadows and now, like a rampant miscanthus, the craze has spread to fashion. At both the Coach show in New York and the Moncler Gamme Rouge in Paris models pranced about on grassy catwalks and had the pretty ditsy wardrobe to accompany it. But what looks at home on a Laura Ingalls Wilder book cover does not necessarily translate to the UK – or even Idaho these days. Beware the prairie trend. A high collared lace shirt, a faded A-line denim skirt, a check blouse? Yes. But keep the ditsy prints to a minimum if you’re over 25 and it’s just a plain no to plaits.

6. Admit you like a chunky sandals

It can take a while for a high fashion trend to catch on. You may not have bought any in the summer of 2014 or the summer of 2015 but chunky sandals are standing their ground (at the Chanel show inspired by air travel they had light up soles). And we are willing to bet that 2016 is the year in which you will succumb, finally admitting that nothing looks better with a wide cut culotte, which, we can inform you, are also going nowhere.

7. Love your wrists

I’m not normally a fan of wrist jewellery. It is not compatible with high keyboard useage. But my most coveted accessories of the SS16 shows were the trailing golden bracelets at the Loewe show.  So 70s, so chic, they cascaded down the wrist and were a glamorous foil against  plain black. Chunky cuffs too are a good punctuation mark over a knit or shirt sleeve. Look at archive images of Diana Vreeland, Loulou de la Falaise or the immaculate Tina Chow and you will rarely spot them without a well stacked arm.  My words-per-minute average may have to suffer.

8. The no-fuss handbag

Travel light seems to be the bag memo for Spring and I won’t argue with it. At the weekend particularly it’s tiresome being held down by a top handle bag, and now that we’re obliged to have a phone in hand at all times, in case of a Snapchat emergency, hands-free really is the only sensible option. So the cross body bag lives to survive another season and is joined by other sensible friends;backpacks, the long-strapped camera bag (thank you, Chloe) and even the once offensive bum bag. Let us hereby resolve that in 2016 our accessories will work for us.

9. Add detail to your knitwear

Be not afraid of the unusually constructed piece of knitwear. Asymmetric cuts, swooping shirt tail backs,  knots, pleats, ties, twists, shoulder details, sliced sleeves or ready made layers – make them your friend. As with stripey tops, they add interest to your outfit and will lend you a smidgen of the avant garde, when in fact, you’ve just pulled on a jumper. Joseph is always a good call for interesting knitwear but if that’s beyond the budget try the Swedish high street brand Cos. When it comes to sweaters you can always rely on the Scandinavians.

10. Grab a wear-everywhere jacket and coat

All hail the transformative coat that can dress down a floaty maxi dress (see above) or up-grade your jeans and a sweatshirt weekend look. The military have had outerwear nailed for centuries and this season  fashion salutes them with its  luxey take on parkas and big pocketed field jackets. And they don’t have to be khaki (although it’s still Team Telegraph’s favourite shade), one of the star pieces at the Isabel Marant Spring/Summer show was a silver parka. Sergeant Majors won’t approve but we’re okay with that.
