Browsing through different fashion shops for a best friend’s birthday may be a challenge, since a lot of the products may look alike. Searching and searching and not finding anything left me disappointed, since my friend is a very special person and also with a deep fashion style. I just wanted to buy something special, one-of-a-kind product.
At the end of an exhausting day I came across De-Mes’Tiks by Reyben Reuel. The designer seems to have a bold point of view in women’s fashion. The prints are daring and have great bright colors. A combination of vintage silhouettes and porcelain doll inspiration, De-mes'Tiks NYC takes African Chic to the next level with the distinct feeling of sophistication, polish, and glamour. This line offers a full range of sizes from size small up to a 3x.
Reuben Reuel came up designing these great blouses, dresses and skirts after a life search for beauty. In the winter of 2007, the artist left his hometown of Virginia Beach, VA to follow his dream in fashion. At first he worked as a freelance sample maker and design assistant for several small design companies. Than, in 2010 he decided to create a business of his own, De-Mes'Tiks NYC by Reuben Reuel.
The aesthetic of the label is finding fabrics that inspire creativity. He sees New York City's Garment District as a designer's treasure chest. The label’s initiative is to support domestic commerce by using fabrics, trims, notions, and production facilities in New York City in efforts to help preserve the Garment District. De-Mes'Tiks NYC by Reuben Reuel strongly believes in its motto: “Live to create, create to live”.
