Finally the big day has arrived! It was time to jet off to Santo Domingo for the long-awaited Dominicana Moda, the fashion week of the Dominican Republic. As I closed my eyes and thought about the palm trees swaying in the soft warm wind, it was clear to me that this journey will be the perfect place to photograph and show my beloved VIAKORO jewelry in 750 yellow gold and 925 silver. As we landed and got off the plane, the intense heat wave kissed my face. I heard the jewellry and dresses in my suitcase calling my name, just as happy as I was for the Dominicana Moda to finally start!

VIAKORO Collection Nr. 1: FLORO in 750 yellow gold
The Look: Beach Angel
Even though my complexion is quite pale and I never go under the sun, I always love wearing white in the summer – especially on the beach and poolside. This has always been my style rule for as long as I can remember. White and colors in the summer, while opting for black in the winter.
On the first day, I wore my Ibiza-inspired short white cold-shoulder dress with colorful flower embroidery. Liking to emphasize my waistline, I tied my vintage wine-colored suede belt around it. I call this the beach angel look because of the flowing white ruffles around the shoulders and the colorful accents, reflecting the flowers and nature.
I polished off the look with the VIAKORO FLORO collection – panassia bracelet, trillium necklace and earrings in 750 yellow gold. The FLORO collection was a perfect match to the floral designs on the dress and also the amazing colorful flowers in the resort. This look was perfect to combine with my new blue / gold sunglasses and my special edition gBag in lilac metal python.

VIAKORO Collection Nr. 2: STELO in 925 silver
The Look: Yellow Glam
The first evening out called for a glamorous look. I have tried to avoid the horrendous yellow color my entire life, until TK Maxx and this trip opened my eyes! As I skeptically packed this marvelous yellow creation, I wasn’t sure how it would match my personal style. As I left my hotel room and stepped out into the glowing evening sun, I instantly fell in love with yellow after all these years! My shock was huge. The Yellow Glam is officially my new acquired style since today. This Dominicana Moda adventure got better by the day, because little did I except to fall in love with my most hated color. I adore such long and flowing maxi dresses, making one instantly feel like the glamorous queen of the night.
This elegant dress is decorated with silver stones on the front, making it a perfect match for the VIAKORO STELO collection – polaris necklace and gravity earrings in 925 silver. The Viva Wyndham has a very unique bar area with colorful hand-painted ceramic tiles decorating both the floor and walls. This matched the yellow silk to perfection and I felt like Alice in Wonderland, floating into another world, while holding onto my nature python gBag.

VIAKORO Collection Nr. 3: VECO in 750 yellow gold
The Look: Hippie Chic
Elegant and légère. I especially picked this dress out because it’s shorter in the front and longer in the back, making it great for both day and night time – casual meets chic. I love this short / long style because one can see the shoes and legs quite well in the front, while the back part of the dress sways elegantly on the floor. I also adore the little coins decorating the fringe of the dress, giving it the sensual gypsy touch and making a soft chiming sound as I walk.
This dress represents my style well because I have been in love with the tie-dye effect ever since I was a child. I found the love for this style by looking at my parent’s old hippie photos. Throughout the years, the tie-dye pattern has really shaped my personal style.
The VIAKORO VECO collection – aurora set in 750 yellow gold was perfect for this look because the word Aurora has a direct correlation to the sun! Good things are never a coincidence. I combined this with my new gBag collection in nature python, perfectly matching the warm Caribbean sun. I wore my hair up in a large high bun, complementing the elegant summer hippie look.

VIAKORO Collection Nr. 4: TRANCO in 750 yellow gold
The Look: Retro Dreams
This casual creation is perfect for the lounging resort look, because it can be worn with flats or dressed up with sexy high heels. This mirrors my style very well because I absolutely adore maxi dresses. I find them to be elegantly timeless. The print has a tie-dyed touch to it, adding onto the warm retro effect. I adore the long slit on the front, making it perfect to show off legs and curves. The cold-shoulder cut gives it the sensual yet nonchalant look.
I found my personal style many years ago in combining two of my favorite things: a maxi dress with a leather jacket. Even if I go to a very fancy event, I will definitely wear my favorite tight leather jacket with my long dress, instead of a blazer or fancier coat. I have been doing this for ages, and that will never change. This gives the long dress a rock-chic look, making it very seductive and a bit dangerous.
I accessorized this look with the VIAKORO TRANCO collection in 750 yellow gold. I decided to wear the complete krado set for the ultimate chic look, and combined it with round golden sunglasses and the gBag in black python.
