This past weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting with Parisian designer Sylvie de Gil. We met at her company, Jomsy Consulting, and I had the wonderful opportunity of viewing their showroom, seeing sneak peeks of her beautiful leather handbag designs, silk scarves and her gorgeous ankle bracelets. Sylvie was such a joy to chat with; she’s incredibly talented, upbeat and passionate about her craft. Sylvie being French and me, Vietnamese, we had more to talk about than we expected. The Vietnamese culture is largely influenced by the French and everything from our language and cuisine to clothing and style reflects it. Sylvie told me how much she enjoys visiting the Little Saigon area in Orange County for their delicious Vietnamese restaurants and I was elated. Aside from beautiful clothes and gorgeous shoes, the key to my heart really is food 😉 It’s always so nice to meet people from other backgrounds only to find so much in common! I was so impressed by Sylvie’s knowledge of the industry from start to finish. Her pieces are all hand cut, made locally here in Los Angeles, CA and are perfect reflections of her love for her designs and passion for the fashion industry. In addition to designing, Sylvie’s company also works with many up and coming designers and offers private label services. You can read more about Sylvie on the Jomsy website here.
I love this video of Sylvie’s designs!
Before we left, she was kind enough to gift me with an ankle bracelet of my choice. They come is such a wide range of beautiful colors, textures and leathers that it was difficult to decide. After much debate, I decided to take home the gorgeous neon yellow ankle bracelet that matched my shoes perfectly. Special thanks to Sylvie for being so gracious and welcoming us into her showroom!

Sounds like a wonderful experience visiting the showroom and also talking with her =) Such cute pieces. At a quick first glance, I thought the ankle bracelet was a strap part of your shoes. Looks great! Love your outfit too =)
