Preview one of the looks modeled at Project Funway!

Here is a preview of one of the looks you can see modeled at Project Funway from Anthropologie!

Pants - Joes Denim
From the classical culture crossroads of Casablance Morocco to the denim hotbed of Los Angeles, CA, Joe Dahan transported his unique talent for designing denim.  His fashion debut in America started with a menswear line & in the spring of 2001, Joe launched his line of women/s denim.  Joe's Jeans come in 10 different fits that are specially formulated to feature female figures with the ultimate slimming effect.
 Top - Leifsdotter
 Scandinavian brand asymmetrical silk coral top is hand beaded on the shoulder and yoke to add the perfect blend of feminine softness.  This top is paired with a dressed down Joe's white denim and could easily transition to an evening or cocktail look. 
 Shoes - Dolce Vita
 These nude sandals are embellished at the toe and cross strap with gold adding the perfect bit of sparkle. The nude tone will blend with your colorful ensemble and not distract from the statement you make at the top.  The perfect pair of shoes for travel as they transition from the beach with a sarong to casual sundress for dinner.  
 Handbag - Taliah Lemport
We've added this playful, youthful had painted handbag to emphasize the casual air to this look.
 All items available at Anthropologie.

Designer: Helen Stevens Model: Jana Lisle

Designer Helen Stevens and Model Jana Lisle

Helen finds design inspiration in fine fabrics, travel, art of all kinds, and the personal style of fashion icons throughout history. Sometimes a new idea for a dress is as simple as imagining an iconic woman in a beautiful place–Audrey Hepburn in Nice or Charlotte Gainsbourg in São Paulo. Through her designs, Helen hopes to share her own fondness for the elegance of fashion's past with a contemporary sensibility.

Jana Lisle Parham is a Certified Financial Planner® with UBS, working
with clients who are enjoying the "FiftyForward" phase of their lives. In 2009 she became the second professional in Tennessee to earn her CPWA® (Certified Private Wealth Advisor) designation. Jana is on the FiftyForward Board, was co chair of the Crown Affair for 2011 and co chairs the Development Committee. She is past president of the FiftyForward Endowment Board and is currently on its Investment Committee.
