Olivia Pope wears Dior in “Everything’s Coming Up Mellie.” #ScandalFashion

The black and white coat Kerry Washington’s Olivia Pope wore in the opening scene of “Everything’s Coming Up Mellie” is this look from the Christian Dior Fall 2013 collection.

I’m definitely loving the cape-like quality to the coat. I also love the black and white theme as it reflects all that is happening in Olivia’s life from  her dad to B6-13 to Operation Remington to OPA to Fitz, etc!

Arte Designs Necklace
We have been talking a lot about Prada bags featured on the hit ABC show Scandal. What also caught my eye is the jewelry on the show this season. It’s simple, subtle, classy and will accentuate any outfit beautifully. At Handbag Divas we believe Divas need fabulous jewels to go with their gorgeous handbags. We loved the jewelry because it is one of a kind, handmade and will definitely makes you feel special and YOUnique. We tracked down the talented designer behind the jewels and as a special pre-holiday treat here’s an exclusive interview with Kim Lee Ozawa of Arté Designs.Kim Lee OzawaTell us about your brand: Arté Designs jewelry consists of original designs that are stylish, feminine, timeless, versatile, and comfortable.  Everything is handmade and the designs range from chic classic styles to original creative designs you won’t find anywhere else. 
How did it all start? At a very early age, I learned to appreciate art from my father, who was a well-known painter.  I studied Fashion in college, then continued my education and received my Master’s degree in International Business.  For many years, I made jewelry as a hobby.  It was a great creative outlet and stress reliever after work.  Before I started my business, my co-workers and customers would often buy the jewelry I made right off my neck.  With the help of my husband, sister, and brother-in-law, I decided to build a web site and try selling my jewelry at the Santa Clara Art and Wine Festival (1999).  To my surprise, everything sold out and I knew there might be something there.  For the next couple of years, I continued to sell jewelry at several Art and Wine Festivals throughout the Bay Area. Since 2002, I’ve only been selling jewelry at www.artedesigns.com.  Through the web site, my jewelry has been purchased by customers from all over the world (20 countries and counting).  It has been featured in several issues ofLucky Magazine.  My TV show clients (past and present) include “Desperate Housewives”, “Cougar Town”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “90210″, “Happy Endings”, “Revenge”, “Scandal”, and “The Crazy Ones”.Arte Designs EarrigsWhat goes in an Arte Designs piece of jewelry:The typical thought process that I go through when creating a design is: to sketch an idea, find the pieces that I want to use, and start laying out the physical design.  If I’m happy with it, construction will begin.  Often times, the physical design will look completely different from the original sketch.  Sometimes, I’ll find a really unique gemstone and create a design around that. 
There’s a lot of thought that goes into even a simple necklace, like the one that Kerry Washington recently wore on “Scandal”.  Like any art piece, it’s important to find the right combination of color, size, shape, and texture.  Other things to consider when designing jewelry are weight, space, how it hangs, and comfort.  I prefer to work with real gemstones, pearls, crystals, and sterling silver.  I’m thinking of expanding to gold jewelry in the near future.

What was the first show that used your jewelry: Although “Desperate Housewives” was the first show to request jewelry, my earrings made its television debut on “Cougar Town” in 2010.  Unfortunately, when the show aired, I was only able to get a glimpse of the earrings when actress Busy Philipps leaned over.  That’s OK; I was still over the moon!  The thrill of seeing something you created show up on TV never gets old. 
How was it to see your jewelry on the best dressed woman on TV, Kerry Washington: I was beyond excited to get jewelry requested from “Scandal” this season.  They gave me an email to send some jewelry photos that might work for the show.  I sent some necklace photos and they bought them all.  So, I designed more pieces for them and they bought even more.  The “Scandal” crew is a dream to work with.  They’re so nice and incredibly professional.  I can’t wait to see if more pieces show up on the show this season.
