BLACKGLAMA is here and other projects...

So I finally posted my BLACKGLAMA collection on my website lookbook, www.hadassador.com.



It's really a shocker and it will captivate you.

I was inspired by the seductive dark natural woman. I use wine/burgundy with antique gold and black.

I wanted it to be alluring and different. I mixed formal evening pieces with tailored pieces such as blazers and I even implemented my famous intarsian knitwear.

I am consistently in love with knitwear and trying to apply it to our everyday attire and trying to spice it up for a night out. I focused on knitted embroidery with the cords.

But I'll let my work speak for itself and let it captivate the audience. Don't just view but leave your critiques , encouragement and comments of wisdom.

Other than that I am working on a garment for my school fashion show at the High Schoolmof Fashion Industries. It's entitled "House of Style".

I am constructing a long evening wear gown.


Also, I am competing for a spot in KLEINFELD Bridal Dress competition, if my mood board is selected. I will construct it and gain an amount of money and my dress will be sd in the store. By God's grace, hopefully I win!

I mean this is the famous (Say Yes to the Dress) NYC bridal gown boutique, KLEINFELD!

Last but not least, I will be showcasing my collection in a fashion show at College of Staten Island.

I am back!

I haven't blogged in so long and I do apologize.

I do have a reason in doing so. 

As you may NOT know , I have been constructing garments for a project/collection I've been wanting to publish and now I am enabling you to know of these ideas.

It's definitely a serious project that I want everyone to dive into. You can understand the concept I am going for and how I set my aesthetic for this collection.

It is entitled BLACKGLAMA, reflecting the woman that is dark, seductive, elegant but her ALL NATURAL self.

Now, natural has a different meaning to everyone. But as I established NATURAL is what YOU make it to be. Being seductive, alluring and dark is in our character whether we view it or not. We all women have that about us and we must keep these traits applicable to us daily.

Using a limited color palette, the hues of burgundy, black and gold captivated my vision and what I wanted to give to the viewer and consumer. 
All the pieces have a statement if their own, the look is a story made with different chapters which are every garment item.
And these looks are definitely stories to read and pass a long for others to come see.



Don't you just love the pop of wine/burgundy and antique gold ?

My Website...Less Blog posts

As you all know or may not, http://hadassador.com is finally up and running!
I launched it on New Year's Day.

It's always been a dream of mine to publish and develop my own site.

On top of that, it's all focused around my brand and what I'm trying to put out there.

Hadassador is more than a brand but a movement, an awareness or evolvement for women all around the world through fashion and style.

On that matter, I will be focused expanding my portfolio with a new collection by March or April.

It will consist of knitwear for the fall of 2014.
It's all about dark, black , and glamour.

Unfortunately, my posts will be few and spacious. I will try to keep you guys as updated as possible.

What I'm working on:

SELLING SCARVES FOR ONLY $28

Hello everyone!

©HADASSADOR has an EXCLUSIVE deal for fall/winter 2013!

I am selling circle scarves for $28!
ONLY $28

SALE CLOSED.


I am selling the original ©HADASSADOR scarf, pictured above.
It will be running from the yarn colors entitled:


  • Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn (153) BlackBlack

  • Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn (138) CranberryRed

  • Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn (099) FishermanIvory

  • Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn (178) CilantroSage

  • Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn (194) Denim Twist Denim 

  • Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn  (133) PumpkinOrange
  • Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick Yarn (143) ClaretBurgundy
This is for NY residents ONLY.

( If you live outside of the state, and still want to purchase, contact me . Contact info below.)

I need THREE orders (ALL PAID AT THE SAME TIME) or more to get started! 

This service works on a  FIRST COME-FIRST SERVE BASIS.

It will take 3-10 business days to get to you, once you PAY (and the transaction goes THROUGH).

You have the option for GROUND SHIPPING which is about $7 or you can PICK UP.

NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGE.

Now, being a customer you're wondering how is that a deal? I will tell you from the seller's perspective and you're perspective as a customer. Still remember, I do purchase items myself so I know how it feels to want to buy something appealing with good quality and still be frugal.Out of the 28$, 17$ goes towards the materials. 3 balls of yarn is 17$! Crazy right! And I use Lion Brand Thick and Quick Wool  (Look it up, if you must.)
Then, 11$ actually goes toward my labor. Now I am really SELLING MYSELF SHORT. REALLY SHORT. Which makes this a very amazing deal and it will be lasting for a short amount of time.
And now, you're asking how am I selling my self short? Here's how:
I hand make all my knitwear which means I knit with two needles in my hands to complete a garment. I do not machine knit at all. I do not have a $700-$800 industrial knitting machine. So, a scarf that could be made in less than 2 hours with a machine is made in 6-7 hours. Depending on the garment, for example, a sweater is made in a month by hand. So time and effort out of my daily activities is placed in a scarf for you!

So again, this is an amazing deal! It is only here for an EXCLUSIVE AMOUNT OF TIME. (Until December 9th!) PRICES WILL RAISE, OR SCARF SERVICE WILL TERMINATE. So get yours now. And tell your friends and family.

This scarf is torso-length. It has the ability to wrap around your neck twice and is very warm.

If you want to pay cash, and pick up, contact me.
