Today I want to share the work of an amazing Canadian Designer, Liselle Fernandes. She is the founder and creative director of ACHE MODE. A luxury brand of statement pieces and sophisticated garments that are sure to make an impression wherever you take them while elevating your look. 

After receiving, styling and wearing some of her pieces, I was so impressed by the quality of each garment. The Chichi heart studded leather jacket is one of my favorite pieces as it is full of silver hearts which makes the leather jacket playful, yet sophisticated. I styled it with a dress for a combination of edge with exaggerated femininity, and I wanted to juxtapose another look by throwing in over a t-shirt and pants for a  more relaxed, yet, elevated look.  

The Mary Varsity blazer jacket is great for a versatile look that combines different elements including faux leather, notch lapels and statement golden button accents which are a great combination. Pair it with a white tee and jeans or over a jumpsuit and runners for a playful look. 

The Kole charcoal black chunky cardigan is oh so cozy and so easy to just throw it on and make it a relaxed yet cool look. You can wear it at home over a jumpsuit or legging or throw it over a dress and booties for another unexpected yet edgy look. 

Finally, the Kay golden button black leather jacket is my favorite piece out of the bunch, not just because I love gold so much, but because I find it to be such a timeless statement staple piece that is sure to look amazing with dresses, jeans, jumpsuits, oversized sweaters, just about anything and everything. 

I had so much fun styling the pieces and I can’t wait to share my looks as well as my daughter Paula’s looks as she got to model all 4 pieces and show how to style them in a different way than mine which was so cool to bring to life. 

Finally, I had the wonderful opportunity to chat with Liselle about her brand as she begins this amazing journey:

“I’ve always loved fashion from when I was a little girl making stapled paper dresses for my younger sister, to making some of my own clothes. I’ve always had a creative side and with heavy influence from my family, I started Ache because I had difficulty finding unique pieces without having to modify them. I love edgy styles mixed with gaudy touches, so I curated statement pieces that have a little something extra and I believe will stand the test of time. That paired with effortless, simple styles makes an everyday look extraordinary.

Ache’s mission is to curate simple yet unique designs with interesting details that can help women show their one of one personalities through their style.”
