Ashley Tisdale was seen enjoying dinner out with her boyfriend Scott Speer at Katsuya restaurant in Hollywood, California last week. She looked to be quite happy and healthy.
Ashley wore a pair of jeans we haven’t seen in ages, the Siwy Hannah jeans in Jet Obsidian. It’s nice to see Ashley also bring out a pair of shoes she hasn’t worn for about a year, her Christian Louboutin Treopli booties. I’ve always loved these shoes, I have the brown/grey version and they are so pretty! You can buy Siwy jeans online at Blueheavenboutique.com.

A new online magazine called The Brander recently interviewed Mother Denim’s Tim Keading. Their LA correspondent met him in person and Tim shared lots of interesting insights with her. You can see a preview of some of the photos above and below and you can read a portion of the interview below as well. You can check out the interview in full and see more photos on The Branders website by clicking here.
Tim Kaeding is something of a star in the US denim fashion scene. His fans enthuse about the skillful cutting techniques that make his jeans flattering to every shape and kind of derriere. But, were it left up to the designer who has worked successfully for jeans labels like “7 for All Mankind” and “The Gap Women’s Jeans,” the subject of his talent would never be brought up. As a Midwesterner from Chicago, he is much too well-bred to do so. Style – in every sense of the word – is his motto.
“I am extremely critical when it comes to fit, fabric and execution.”
Fittingly, Kaeding lives in an elegant Spanish Colonial residence in Los Feliz, a fashionable district to the east of Hollywood. His unerring sense of style is reflected in his home’s interior decoration; obviously, absolutely nothing has been left to chance. Yet, most impressive of all, this perfection comes across as very relaxed and organic. Tim Kaeding likes to use his domicile with its leafy, park-like grounds as a location for video and photo shoots for his new label MOTHER Denim, established in 2010. His home’s West Coast rock ‘n’ roll glamour is both timeless and hip, and captures the essence of MOTHER Denim perfectly.
The actual “glamour engineering,” however, is conducted in a completely different world. South of the 10 freeway in Los Angeles, this is an area that stands for gangland or, as in MOTHER Denim’s case, the city’s bleak gray – aside from the blue southern Californian sky – industrial zone. Kaeding’s office is on the first floor of the production plant – small, cramped, and cheaply furnished. The floor is littered with denim fabric samples; a clothes rack is closely hung with the next collection. The walls are covered with sketches, color samples, and photographs. Books, magazines, labels, rivets, and buttons are spread out on the desk he shares with his two assistants.
To celebrate the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate and William’s, upcoming visit to Los Angeles, California, WWD asked some designers what the couple should wear for their trip. 7 For All Mankind ended up getting their sketch on the cover of WWD! How exciting is that? I think the sketch looks amazing and they have a very talented illustrator! I could definitely see Kate in an outfit like this and how hot would William look with that style?!
