“I love art, technology, and fashion and I try to incorporate the three into every project I work on.” – Aris Olay

Aris first began taking his art and photography skills more serious in 2004. After graduating from Georgia Perimeter College with his communication degree he took on tutor job. As a photography & web design tutor for online students at Ashworth College, Aris would spend each day helping other aspiring photographers and creatives learn the skills they needed to achieve their dreams. “I was working a 40-hour a week job, answering up to 60 student emails a day. I saw what their goals were, and told myself I should be trying to achieve more for myself too.”

In 2009, Aris moved from Atlanta to Miami Beach, FL. He set up shop in the FASHIFY office on Collins Avenue, and has been busy since producing creative work in the areas of web design, web development, fashion photography, and quite recently poetry. “As an artist I realized that I didn’t have to just focus my abilities in one medium.”

Ocho Rios , Jamaica

What a beautiful place filled with even more beautiful people welcoming you with open arms and tons of love. I really enjoyed my time on the island, but even more so my time in the “Straw Market” was the icing on the cake. As you all may or may not know I design and hand make beaded jewelry and I was on the hunt for local artists in hopes of inspiration for my own jewelry . Not only did I come across local jewelry designers and artist but I was beyond inspired by all the hand crafted jewelry made right in the straw market , some even custom made to order and personalized . I’m super excited to share my FIRST Jamaican experience with you so lets just jump right in!

image-35

Ok! So after just a few minutes of strolling through the straw market I can come across this gentleman who was hard at work crafting jewelry but was nice of enough to stop and take a picture for the “Princess” ( in my best Jamaican accent) lol.

image-36

His table was filled with handmade beaded necklaces , which is what caught my eye! I was surprised and thrilled to see that he uses some of the same beads as me. I really loved some of his turquoise pieces as well as the vibrant red chunky pieces , which I think are definitely statement pieces and PERFECT for spring and summer.

image-37

Here is another local artist who also carried beaded jewelry as well .This artist in particular carried wooden beaded bracelets as well as onyx , and hematite beaded pieces , which I use in some of my work and is definitely one of my favorite style of bead.

image-38

This particular hut was filled with an assortment beaded items. The work on this table really stood out to me. The unique style of mixing both wooden and onyx beads was very interesting . I hadn’t seen that before and thought it’s was very creative and definitely worth a picture.

image-39

JAMAICA ! JAMAICA! Yea MON … Hand woven Jamaica bracelets and bamboo Lay necklaces with the country’s flag and/or colors filled the table of this vendor! These little keep sakes makes the perfect souvenir for a loved one or that special someone.

image-40

“The Gem Cutter”

Tools and shells on deck, this kind gentleman hand makes each and every piece of jewelry displayed on his table out of shells found in the beautiful waters of Jamaica ! Everything from necklaces , rings , earrings , and personalized initials delicately cut with just a jewelry tool and scissors. The Ford gem store was for sure a source of inspiration .

Inspiration

Coffee anyone?

Just when I thought I had seen it all here comes the sweetest woman asking me to look at her work . At first glance I thought it was just another wooden necklace but nope … I asked what it was made of and to my surprise she said COFFEE BEANS! YEP … That’s right hand strung necklaces all made from coffee beans . Long story short I purchased 3 from her all for $2 bucks a piece, I would definitely consider this a a great find and top of my list for unique purchases.

image-44

Soooo… I came across this little sexy number. Although I’ve seen these on the beaches of south fl during spring break ,I think that these “FOOT THONGS “are going to be a hit this spring and summer . So “Lose the shoes ” and get into a Foot Thong to accent your pedicure .

Collectables

image-45

Last but certainly not least are these hand made braided bracelets . A few years back on one of my other vacations I began to collect these braided bracelet from each destination. I absolutely them ! I think they make for great souvenirs

image-46

I wear my bracelets with almost everything , especially while vacationing . I will definitely be rocking them for a while … First stop is the pool.

image-47 image-48

I really enjoyed my time in Ocho Rios it was certainly an experience like non other I’m sure I will be back to dive head first into the Jamaican culture sooner rather than later

image-49

Until next time … ONE LOVE !

We’re happy to be back in the office posting to blog after a 3-month sabbatical for the holidays. October 2013 through January 2014 was actually busy time of the year for the Creative Services Team here at FASHIFY. Clever and flirtatious viral ad banners and social updates on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter gave us a lot of attention from other fashion professionals and businesses looking to get website design, web development, photography, and video production services.

FASHIFY Miami Beach Website Design Team

A provocatively worded & well timed FASHIFY web design ad featured on Twitter.

We have some cool projects on the calendar for this year which include a FASHFY iPhone app, and a full website makeover for hireFASHION.com. A website for fashion professional looking for careers in the industry, hireFASHION will be launching a private beta soon. If you have a fashion resume, you should request free access to the beta membership today.

The FASHIFY website is faster now for mobile devices. We started with a minimalist website template and stripped it down either further. Removing a lot the “design” from the webpages makes the content that we produce take the stage with more visual impact. “With our old website it felt like it took too long for the eye to see something fashionably important”, commented web developer, web designer, and photographer Aris Olay. “I’m going to be up all night for the next few weeks… slowly releasing new functionally on the site to our subscribers.”
