Fit-Fashion Friday: About Us

Ms Fit For Society

 

About Ms Fit For Society

We aren’t just fashion. We aren’t just fitness. We’re right where these two should be, together on one playing field.   The Ying and Yang…

Ms Fit For Society was truly born from our love of sharing ideas, clothes, health tips, mom tips, any and all ways of coming up with a plan to “live life to the fullest.”  Endless hours of sharing ideas over walks to the playground, over coffee, over wine, in dressing rooms, in baby classes and late night texts. Ultimately, Ms Fit for Society is the merging of our passions for fashion and fitness.

Another thing we share is our love for meeting new people. One of our goals for this endeavor is to share what we adore, but also to learn what all of you fabulous Ms Fits love too. We know there are plenty of amazing women out there starting new projects, supporting great causes, or just loving their newly purchased handbag or even new haircut and we want to hear about it! We’d love to learn all about what types of business you run, blogs you write, designers you crave, the workouts you love (or hate), the foods that help you stay healthy….anything at all you want to share to help us meet our goals of supporting each other in being happier, healthier and hopefully having more fun at the same time!

A bit more  about us~

Alisa Kapinos-

I’ve worked as a personal and wardrobe stylist for the last 10 years. I’ve been lucky enough to meet some of the world’s best photographers, makeup artists and models. I’ve been lucky enough to go to New York fashion weeks and meet top designers, I’ve been lucky enough to transform people’s closets and love for fashion, and as of the last 4 years, I’ve been lucky enough to become a mom to my two beautiful sons. And now, I’m on this journey that is Ms. Fit for Society. @styleproductions @googoogabgab

Jessica Diaz-

I have been in love with Barre workouts now for over 13 years. I have been teaching for over three years. I am currently teaching at Asana Charlestown and at Equinox Avery Street. I have been so fortunate to train and learn from the best teachers across the country. For my full class schedule visit my facebook page Jessica Diaz Boston Barre or email me at jessicalajoinie@gmail.com.

I started teaching Barre because I wanted to share the positive changes it brought to my life. Some of the changes were more obvious (increased strength and flexibility) and some surprising (way more energy, interacting with tons of fabulous people, and the tremendous joy I have when seeing people’s excitement when they start to see the changes in their lives too).

Barre has helped me have more energy to keep up with my two kids and also feeling stronger and healthier…. resulting in me having way more fun with fashion. I have never loved fashion more than right now.. so it was the perfect timing to join forces with Alisa to form Ms Fit For Society. @jessicadiaz22 @jessicadiazbostonbarre

New Ms Fit Feature: The designers behind Rue De Seine

Tis’ wedding season and lucky for us, and our Ms Fits, Rue De Seine made a stop at the local bridal boutique, Ceremony on their Nomadic Love tour. Ceremony exclusively carries this line of gorgeous and bohemian influenced gowns in all of Massachusetts. The gowns in this collection embody the free-spirit, style and bohemian lifestyle that we love. Each gown is unique in its gorgeous silk, flowered detailing, lace and feminine silhouette and are just as beautiful and stylish as the designer behind it. We are thrilled we had the chance to meet New Zealand designer, Greer Osborne, and lucky she took time out of her busy North American tour to share with us about what she is loving in fitness and fashion and a little more about her business partner and the artistic director at Rue De Siene, Michele Corty!

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU BUSY THESE DAYS?

 We have just moved our design studio to Chicago where we are hoping to connect with more American brides who we see are to become our biggest market. We are having the Nomadic Love tour that started in Boston and will continue through the new year which involves a lot of traveling and meeting all of our beautiful brides. We will be visiting all our US retailers with the entire collection and will be there to help style the gowns. Visit our website for the full tour list at www.ruedeseine.com. All Rue De Seine gowns will continue to be hand made in New Zealand.

WHAT ARE YOU LOVING IN FITNESS AND FASHION RIGHT NOW?

We have just returned from New York for Bridal Fashion Week where we saw some really interesting and beautiful things; my favorite was the styling of Naeem Khan’s runway. We really love everything bohemian and the spring/summer 2016 Chloe collection was just glorious! In terms of fitness, we are always on the go, in airplanes or hotels, so any useful do-it-yourself fitness tips would be much appreciated!

HOW DID YOU GET INTO DESIGNING WEDDING DRESSES?  WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR NAME, RUE DE SEINE?
Michele started Rue De Seine 4 years ago with husband Michael. The brand started out as a pop up store in Auckland, New Zealand. Rue De Seine is the street in Paris where Michele and Michael used to live and the brand is based upon the effortless lifestyle of the bohemian women. The gowns have a hint of cheekiness, a touch of boho luxe glam, flooded with florals, lace and of course endless amounts of white. I got into designing wedding dresses after a year spent in New York interning at a bridal fashion house, I then moved back to NZ,  and after following Michele’s beautiful work I basically asked for a job and have been on the design team ever since.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO BRIDES-TO-BE ON HOW TO PICK THE DRESS THAT IS RIGHT FOR THEIR WEDDING?

When choosing your gown, it’s always nice to have friends and family around for such a big decision, we recommend only inviting your very close family and/or friends and keeping it to 2 people max!
