Meet One Of LA’s Longest-Serving Fashion Visionaries: Jane Booke

Meet One Of LA’s Longest-Serving Fashion Visionaries: Jane Booke

30 Years Strong

Timeless, classic, and elegant are just a few words used to describe her designs, yet, somehow they are much more than that. LA’s very own Jane Booke—a native Angeleno designing luxury bespoke dresses, jumpsuits and coats—has long been capable of creating designs embodying the utmost bohemian styles. Crediting Camelot and Star Wars as her key inspiration, it’s no wonder she continues to captivate the minds and hearts of those she dresses today.

As attention spans shrink in this social media age, trends continue to see shorter cycles before everyone moves on to the next thing. However, at the heart of fashion relevance and perseverance, simplicity, convenience, and reliability reign supreme. Jane understands the everyday woman and her needs, believing in fashion that makes sense, like ‘wash and wear’ silk dresses and coats to create a glamorous look with the practicality needed for women on the go.

Jane has always stayed true to her aesthetic as she reimagines her heritage designs while honoring her personal style, and it’s evident in her latest Summer 2023 line. We had the opportunity to conduct a Q&A with Jane to get some insight into her story, accomplishments, style, and how she’s managed to create the successful label that she has. Read on for more about Jane and her brand, and shop her Summer 2023 collection at Jane Booke.

Q&A With Jane Booke

Q: Hi Jane! To start us off, would you mind letting readers know some of your story? What led you down the path to create your label?

JB: Since I was a young girl I’ve always loved beauty. As a child, my parents traveled constantly, which left me pretty much on my own. Now I wouldn’t change that for the world because I had no choice but to be creative, whether it was music, clothing, or art.

As a teenager, I traveled every year to stay with my father in the south of France. We would always stop in London, where I searched the vintage stores and found stunning dresses from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. Some of the best pieces I found were in London. They weren’t really wearable because the fabric was so old, so when I returned back to the states, inspired by these dresses, I had the idea to create similar pieces in newer fabrics. I never intended to start my own line, but friends and passersby alike kept asking about my clothes. I began my own line about 30 years ago and have been creating these signature, bespoke pieces ever since.

Q: At nearly 30 years old, how has Jane Booke evolved from its early years to now? Is there a unique bit of DNA that continues to live on even in today’s designs, or is it drastically different?

JB: In a world where trends are over the top, and only last a few minutes, I have stuck with classic designs which are timeless. There is DNA in my line from 25 years ago. I might change something here and there, and it looks completely different. However, it is still timeless. I’ve even had clients call me and ask if I have any “OG“ Jane Booke dresses available, and they search for them on eBay. That said, my designs and overall aesthetic has remained pretty consistent over the years – I focus on creating a core collection of styles that can withstand the test of time. Each season I find new ways to freshen up these classics, with interesting fabrics, patterns,etc. All my fabrics even the faux fur, Silks and Velvet are all washable and dryable. I have an aversion to trendy clothing, and my formula works to keep my clothes timeless.

Q: It’s not always easy to make something classic with the ability to withstand the test of time. How do you go about capturing the timeless nature of your designs? Does it start with a color, simple design choices, or something more?

JB: My designs begin in my head. I might see something that inspires me.

Fairytales have always been an inspiration to me. Art is another huge inspiration. Modern art mixed with pre-Raphaelite art is what I strive for in my designs. I believe the combination of old meets new keeps my clothes timeless. I might see a neckline, or a sleeve in a painting that will inspire a completely new dress.

Q: Where has your inspiration stemmed from over the years?

JB: I think the best way to explain my collection is “Camelot meets Star Wars.”
It might sound strange, but the ancient and the modern when they come together, make a classic dress or coat. My pieces can last a lifetime.

Q: How do you approach trends? Are they something to tap into every once in a while, or do you steer clear and stay strictly in your own lane?

JB: I don’t follow trends unless it’s by accident! Trends are not personal to me. I want my clothes to have heart, and I want women to feel that when they wear them.

It’s important to me that I design pieces that will keep their value forever.

Q: There’s always a word or two that comes to mind when you think of a brand or experience their product. What is it that you want women to feel when they think of and wear Jane Booke?

JB: I believe women have been trying to be more like men in order to be respected.

I tell the women who buy my clothes that their power is in their femininity.

Nine times out of 10, when a woman puts on one of my pieces, they actually stand taller, and their confidence level goes way up like they could conquer the world.

Q: Are there any struggles that you and the label faced, and how did you overcome them?

JB: The biggest struggle I’ve faced in my career is that I really never sought out to be a designer – as crazy as it sounds, one day I was just “in the business.” I got my start when Les Habitudes saw me in one of my pieces. Three days later, they ordered 31 styles, four sizes per piece. I believe my whole career was just given to me from Heaven. I had to take a crash course in the fashion business and scale my personal designs into a label!

Q: What have been some of your biggest accomplishments and proudest moments to date?

JB: My biggest accomplishment was when I became partners with John Paul DeJoria, co-founder of Patron Tequila and Paul Mitchell. Unbeknownst to me, his wife bought about 80 dresses from my collection, and I accidentally bumped into them at a fashion event, and we were in business. John Paul is a humanitarian and an innovator. We met because we happen to have the same dentist. After I left the dentist, he smelled my signature fragrance Taken and they told him it was me.The rest is history.

Q: You’ve worked with icons and legends in entertainment! Is there anyone you haven’t worked with yet, that you dream of working with?

JB: There are two. I love Stevie Nicks and Margot Robbie. Both of these women have confidence and attitude. They also know that their power is in their femininity.

Q: Have you achieved your ultimate vision and goal for Jane Booke, and if not, where would you like to take the brand in the near and long term future?

JB: I want Jane Booke to bring glamour back, and to see women wearing my clothes everywhere. I want women to be enriched by the lifestyle that glamour can bring. It doesn’t have to be difficult. Glamour is power, and it is not hard to achieve.

I want more and more women to stop saving beauty for later.


Get A Kick Out Of This: Novella Redefines Unique Sneakers

Get A Kick Out Of This: Novella Redefines Unique Sneakers

We all aim to express ourselves with a bit of flair or individuality that you just won’t find anywhere else. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy, and far too common that we come across someone out there who manages to steal our style. Now, all that changes with Novella, the unisex sneaker brand threading a meaningful story into every limited-run design they introduce. (Lucky you, if you saw them in our Summer roundup!)

“Every Sneaker Tells A Story”

Whether it’s for a seasonal refresh, or just in time for going back to school, Novella is reinventing what it means to be unique—from the insole to the outsole—quite literally! Always working with a different artisan or creative to inspire each drop, Novella’s sneaker designs are inspired by said creator to share their story. 

From comedians and barbers to poets and painters, these are the rarest designs you’ll see on the feet around you, and for good reason. Novella produces and sells exactly 2,020 pairs of each design, a callback to their founding year.

Furthermore, each pair of sneakers are individually numbered–1 through 2,020–with the number stitched onto the heel tab. Therefore, you won’t see anyone running the streets with the same number from the same Chapter (season) or Verse (colorway).

From the embossed handwriting of poet Rudy Francisco, to the fresh fade inspiration of barber, Sedric Salinas, each design is truly a work of art complete with outsoles that transition from herringbone tread into a unique fingerprint (the combined fingerprints of those involved in the design process). Each pair of Novella’s come with 2 pairs of laces for added customization — a pair that complements the art, and another to accentuate it.

Some recent creatives the brand has worked with include slam-poet Rudy Francisco, textile artist Katherine Entis, comedian Akaash Singh, and more! Check out some of the featured stories below, as you take in more of the juicy creative details:

  • The Love Poem is inspired by slam-poet Rudy Francisco and embodies his belief that every poem is an act of love. Love Poem’s design is an homage to Rudy’s medium, by intertwining textile metaphors and unique poetic elements.

  • Momotaro is inspired by textile artist Katherine Entis and is inspired by the deconstruction of her textile arts. Momotaro depicts the artist’s vibrant color palettes that became an integral component in her work through a culmination of her personal journey—which is encompassed by Momotaro’s show stopping, waved multicolor outsole.

  • Verse 2: The Lion is inspired by comedian Akaash Singh and pays homage to evening wear suited for a night out in NYC. The silky midnight blue jacquard upper showcases custom iconography including a mic cord that is weaved throughout moments of Akaash’s life story found in the print.

If that weren’t enough, craftsmanship is at the forefront with premium Italian leather, interior tongue labels that reveal the artisan’s name, tongues and  that borrow from their creativity and craft, and printed footbeds that hold personal meaning. Shop Novella’s wearable art and secure your one-of-a-kind number!

Meet Novella – Truly 1 of 1

Whether it’s for a seasonal refresh, or just in time for going back to school, there’s a new brand out there reinventing what it means to be unique – and there just aren’t enough good things to say about them!

Novella, the unisex sneaker brand threading a meaningful story into every limited-run design they introduce, is working with a different artisan/creative to inspire each drop. From comedians and barbers to poets and painters, these are the rarest designs you’ll see on the feet around you, and for good reason. Novella itself is unique in that each sneaker design is inspired by a creative to share their story.

Recent creatives the brand has worked with include slam-poet Rudy Francisco, textile artist Katherine Entis, comedian Akaash Singh, and more. If that weren’t noteworthy enough, Novella’s designs capture a classic and timeless look, so even ten years from now, these sneakers are sure to turn heads with all their design inspirations.

From red bottoms to embossed handwriting, each design is truly a work of art, complete with outsoles that transition from herringbone tread into a unique fingerprint (the combined fingerprints of those involved in the design process). Each pair of sneakers are numbered – 1 through 2,020 – being that each design only sees 2,020 pairs manufactured and sold. Therefore, you won’t see anyone with the same number from the same Chapter (season) or Verse (colorway). How’s that for being unique?

If that weren’t enough, craftsmanship is at the forefront with premium Italian leather, interior tongue labels that reveal the artisan’s name and craft, and printed footbeds that hold personal meaning.  Each pair of Novella’s come with 2 pairs of laces for added customization — a pair that complements the art, and another to accentuate it.

All About Art

Take in Feast of Wu-Tang Triptych “The Power of Utterance”

If art is your thing and you’re. fan of Wu-Tang Clan, join others in celebrating 50 years of Hip Hop, and 30 years of Enter The Wu Tang (36 Chambers) album artist, Rosey D’Angelo, an NYC-native based in Venice, CA. D’Angelo created the “Feast Of The Wu Tang” painting, and it’s quite the spectacle to appreciate. As Rosey states, “The inspiration came [from] for me personally, as I’m one of 9 siblings from Staten Island (aka Shaolin), and I think of this piece as a celebration of the magic of nine individuals and their ability to overcome together in ways they couldn’t have alone.”
Rosey created the painting Feast of Wu-Tang Triptych “The Power of Utterance,” which can be conveniently observed here, where you can zoom in for all the details or blow it up on a wall for that big Summer party you have planned. There, D’Angelo explains the vision, inspiration, relevance, and symbolism of numbers. Rosey D’Angelo recently signed with Cynamin Jones, founder of Cynamin Jones Consulting, Inc. and former VP of Publicity of Wu Wear for representation.

Watch Saleka Perform Live @ Hotel Cafe – June 15

If you’re looking for the perfect Summer date night activity, it can’t get better than a live performance from singer-songwriter Saleka! This rising star just released her debut album, “Séance,” earlier this month and is kicking off her summer tour this week, where she will be headlining Hotel Cafe in Hollywood on June 15.

You can get hypnotized by listening to her debut record, Séance, here. The songwriting and overall vibes of Séance are complete with an eclectic mix of R&B, jazz, and neo-soul. Witnessing Saleka now is a great opportunity as she gains recognition, notably, as Vogue has praised her, “one-of-a-kind-voice.”

A Philly native, Saleka is a classically trained, Indian-American musician who began playing piano at 4 years old. As the daughter of M. Night and Dr. Bhavna Shyamalan, she was raised on an eclectic combination of music and dance. Saleka has spent the last couple of years honing her live-show chops – performing at iconic venues across the U.S., and opening for both Giveon, Summer Walker, and more. She has also performed at Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, and a few other festivals. Purchase tickets, here.

Check Out A Book: The Aesop Queer Library, Opens Through June 25

Branches of the Queer Library will open concurrently at Aesop Silver Lake, Los Angeles; Aesop Williamsburg, New York; and Aesop Yorkville, Toronto from 20 to 25 June. As in previous years, each visitor will be invited to select a complimentary book from the shelves and take it home, while stocks last.

Against a backdrop of increasingly hostile and reductive discourses about LGBTQIA2S+ representation, the library celebrates the transformative power of literature—its ability to affirm, uplift and illuminate. According to the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, 2022 saw a 38% increase in titles targeted for censorship. Of those titles, the vast majority were written by or about members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community or by and about Black people, Indigenous people, and other people of color. In response, the Aesop Foundation has donated USD $100,000 to the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation, which works to defend freedom of expression, both in the courts and beyond.

Catherine O’Dea, Chair of the Aesop Foundation, says: ‘The Aesop Foundation is proud to support the ACLU to end classroom censorship, challenge book bans and promote access to public libraries. The grant reflects our shared commitment to supporting literacy and education and we stand in solidarity with the ACLU’s Right to Learn campaign, and other activities that defend freedom of expression to advance equity.’

The books included in this year’s library were selected by Aesop team members, and were sourced from independent queer-owned bookstores—Glad Day Books in Toronto and Bookwoman in Austin—along with titles donated by Penguin Books. From classic queer texts by James Baldwin and Audre Lorde, to contemporary titles by writers such as George M. Johnson and Maia Kobabe, the collection reveals how valuable these voices are to society as a whole. Such texts continue to develop empathy and understanding—not to mention a rich canon of literature that reflects a multitude of lived experiences.

Guided by a long-standing reverence for literature, the Aesop Queer Library invites visitors to share in a message of hope, courage and conviction, with stories to share and discuss long after 2023’s Pride celebrations come to a close.

Discovering Stylish Women’s Pants for Sale: A Fashionista’s Guide

Discovering Stylish Women’s Pants for Sale: A Fashionista’s Guide

Are you tired of wearing the same old jeans over and over again? Are you ready to change your wardrobe game? Look no further because stylish womens pants online are here to save the day! Whether you’re going for a sophisticated office look or just want to add some extra flare to your outfit, there’s a pair of pants out there waiting for you.

Start with the Basics

Before diving headfirst into trendy and bold styles of pants, make sure to have some staple pieces in your wardrobe. Basic items like black leggings, high-waisted trousers, and classic denim jeans will never go out of style. Depending on the occasion, these items can be paired to create different styles. They make an excellent foundation that allows any closet pieces to stand out.

Find Your Style

Once you have covered all your basic must-haves, it’s time to explore new trends. Fitted cigarette pants are perfect if you want something tailored but modern and trendy. Wide-legged culottes can be paired with an oversized shirt or blouse giving off an effortless yet polished vibe.

Alternatively, skinny leather pants offer great edge and sass while adding texture and rock-chic energy into outfits when paired with slouchy tees or casual shoes like sneakers or boots.

Brightly colored cargo-style high-waisted paper bag pants look amazing with chunky knit sweaters tucked in at the waistline. Always remember that proportion is key, whether combining feminine blouses & puff sleeves underneath them!

The material used also plays a critical factor, like silk trousers provide sophistication that will leave everyone impressed; linen fabric offers ease of comfort during summertime when temperatures climb above 30°C while a velvety finish adds luxe elegance that is perfect for night outs!

Get Creative

Mixing prints is one trend that has been steadily surfacing over the past few years, not only in tops but also pants. Prints like leopard and floral can add a pop of color and the perfect amount of flair to any outfit.

Comfort is the key, which is why joggers have become an all-time favorite for many fashionistas. They provide comfort and ease of movement alongside style without sacrificing anything. They look stylish paired with casual-chic jackets or oversized knits rather than just athletic hoodies or tank tops.

Cropped styles such as wide-legged culottes and tapered ankle pants are perfect for creating proportions; they allow you to show off your best shoes, whether heels or flats, while showing more skin, creating a leg-length illusion.

For a daring look, try belting your high-waisted trousers with printed textures like python snakeskin patterns giving it an edgy attitude over plain belts.

Finalize The Look

Accessories can enhance the whole appearance of one’s outfit! Pair women’s pants for sale with boots, chunky sneakers, sandals heels offering different mixes based on individual preference in time. Statement pieces like oversized hats/earrings/necklaces can also change a look entirely.

In Conclusion

Give yourself options when it comes to finding stylish women’s pants by trying on new looks you may have never considered before! Be open-minded and willing to experiment – after all, fashion is meant to be fun! Start building from basics onto bolder choices covering suitable materials in each style category. Make creative outfit combinations, then finalize everything flawlessly using accessories, making them stand out uniquely and rounding up the final touches that will make every fashionista fall head-over-heels in love with their stylish women’s pants collection!

In the end, finding the perfect pair of stylish women’s pants for sale depends on personal choice. Explore different styles, materials, and prints to create a unique fashion statement that reflects your individuality. Keep trying new things until you find what works best for your style and personality. Happy shopping!

From LA to Edinburgh Fringe Festival

From LA to Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Maybe you’ve heard of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival that happens every August in Edinburgh, Scotland? If not, it’s an amazing month of theater celebration. Every venue that can transforms itself into a theater: restaurants, libraries, universities, even shipping containers appear in the streets that can house an audience of 40-50 people. And each day, you have a choice of roughly 3000 shows to go and see. There’s something for everyone: drama, comedy, musicals, cabaret, circus acts, choirs, vaudeville, stand up comedians, huge productions and solo shows. It’s exhilarating, stimulating, inspiring and soooo much fun!

This year, several actors from Los Angeles are headed to the Fringe to perform their shows. It’s quite the leap of faith because it’s expensive to put on a show, plus you have no idea where you are, the accents are hard to understand, and your entire support system is thousands of miles away.


Cindy D’Andrea is one such brave soul. An actor, writer, producer, fitness expert and award-winning solo performer, Cindy talked to SoCal Magazine about her show “Cat Sh!t Crazy”, which she will perform in Edinburgh. Cat Sh!t Crazy is about finding love when Cindy rescued two kittens from the shelter. She has been an animal rescuer and volunteer for over 20 years and hopes to connect with fellow animal lovers of all kinds and save some cats in the process!  

1: Have you taken part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before? — I have not, but it has been a dream of mine to perform there since 2016. Last year, I went to the festival as a spectator and had the best time while doing my research and taking notes!  

2: Have you traveled a lot or is this a new experience? — This is a new experience. As a kid, we didn’t have the money to travel. And as I got older, I didn’t want to leave my cats and was too busy trying to save all the homeless and feral cats in Los Angeles, of course!

3: What are you most worried about with taking your show to the Fringe?— Loaded question! Definitely the tech side of things including getting a consistent operator, short rehearsal times, communication with the venue, details with posters, flyers, getting butts in the seats and standing outside in the rain in my cat costume handing out flyers!

4: Is anyone going with you? — Going solo!  I’m looking for someone to help me while I’m there though and have been connecting with some lovely locals.

5: Have you performed in other countries before? — No, I’ve only ever performed in the U.S.

6: What do you think is the biggest difference between British audiences and American ones? —  I’m not sure. I think Americans are more emotional in their responses and Brits perhaps enjoy raw comedy more.  I’ll find out and get back to you!

In preparation of her Edinburgh run, Cindy’s performing at Broadwater Black Box from July 18-23, 6 performances. Go cheer her on!! Click here for tickets.


Next up, we spoke with Star Stone, an actress, producer and playwright whose work focuses on uplifting survivors of gender based violence. Star is the creator of the edu-tainment comedy ​#MeToo, a one-woman show that centers on Star’s real life experiences with sexual assault and gender-based violence. But this is not a show focused on a single perpetrator, it’s a show focused on the organizations and systems that function to uphold rape culture. #MeToo is a provocative, wildly funny, boundary-pushing, educational show.

Having spent time in LA, on and off for 9 years, Star has performed at the Hollywood Fringe Festival and SOLOFEST. “Working with artistic director of the Whitefire (and producer of SOLOFEST), Bryan Rasmussen was a phenomenal experience. I premiered to a sold out first night at SOLOFEST and was grateful to the Soaring Solo Community for showing up in support of me and my work!  The Hollywood Fringe Festival was an equally incredible experience. I signed on as producer for the first time during this run. If anything, the Fringe taught me to take risks, be bold with my choices, fearlessly and fiercely own my own ideas and most importantly, have fun!”

1. Have you taken part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before? — Nope- first timer!

2. Have you traveled a lot or is this a new experience? — First time in Europe.

3. What are you most looking forward to? — Connecting with other solo artists and being able to share my work with new audiences!

Last, but not least, is Nalini Sharma with her show, UNTIL DEATH – a solo show that combines theater and clowning, set in a hospital where time collapses and humans panic in moments of death and existence. Inspired by her childhood, during which Nalini survived more than one motorcycle accident, and spent quite a bit of time in hospitals. UNTIL DEATH is an absurdist, feminist, pragmatist, clown-ist, anti-centrist, pre-industrialist, present-dogist, post-experimentalist show… There’s something for everyone. Except children. Don’t bring children to this one.

1. Have you taken part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before? — I have not! Poppin’ the Edinburgh Fringe cherry with this one. Don’t be too nervous for me, the first time can be great too.

2. Have you traveled a lot or is this a new experience? — Luckily and gratefully, I’ve travelled a lot in my life. My family loves their family vacations and we go outside of America and India frequently. We have yet to hit Scotland, however. So I’m particularly thrilled for this trip. And ofcourse once my parents found out I’m doing a show in a country they haven’t been to, they didn’t hesitate to book their tickets to come see me. Wish me luck, my father does not know what burlesque is. And yes there is burlesque in my show.

3. What are you most worried about? — Drinking Scotch for days on end. Oh, thank you for reminding me. I need to look up the taxi or ride-share services they have.

4. What are you most looking forward to? — Drinking Scotch for days on end. And doing my show.

5. Is anyone going with you? — Yes! My wonderfully talented director, Sophia Cleary and my wonderfully talented clown friend, Mike Rose who is featured in my show is also coming!

6. What do you think is the biggest difference between British audiences and American ones? — It seems to me British audiences are open to more risk takers. They seem to love the weird, outlier characters or stories that are woven in non-traditional ways. I’m excited to share my show with them.

Now, make sure to support these talented ladies and get yourself to Edinburgh!
