Hey Jow, Let’s Play Footsie

Everyday I see my social networking feeds overflowing with wannabe designers and new small-scale creative businesses that don’t really stand out. But when Manila-based makeup artist/designer Joana Ballesteros began posting photos of her accessories on Instagram, I took notice.

Hey Jow’s designs are the lovechild of a water goddess and hippie chick, with no air of pretentious high couture. I visited her showroom and together we worked on this customized piece below.

Working with mostly charms and beach-themed pieces, Hey Jow is a work in progress and I can’t wait to see how her brand develops in the next few months. If you live in a tropical country like the Philippines, this beach theme works throughout the year.

Coming soon: a collaboration between Hey Jow and KateWasHere.com. I’m helping her come up with a limited-edition line of accessories that you may purchase online. I’ll keep you posted!
