The Sacramento Bee, one of the country’s leading newspapers, has published a wonderfully written article praising their local business woman and fashion designer, Ada Komorniczak’s recent company achievement.
The inc.com annual listing of the fastest growing 5000 companies in the nation recently posted ada collection as no. 588. The article continues on to describe the quick thinking of Ada and Gaston ( her partner and husband ), as well as their attention to economic trends that has led to this outstanding accomplishment.
All of us at ADA Collection are proud of this affirmation of our performance, and can’t wait to show everyone what’s in-store for the coming year!

What we do love, is the idea of blending some healthy vegetables into our fruits smoothies to make a healthy, fiber and flavor rich snack!
Kale, Cucumber, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli and, Beets and Bok Choy are all wonderful base vegetables to use in your blender. Now here is a quick “method” to make your own veggie-fruit smoothie every day – All you’ll taste is the fruit!
Big Blend Smoothie Recipe:
- Start with 3/4 to 1 cup of water
- Then choose three vegetables. Typically, I use about 3 cups or large handfuls of spinach, one whole carrot and one or two small vine tomatoes.
- Next, I choose three fruits. I start with either mango, pear or apple for the base, then I add one whole orange and either 1 cup blueberries, strawberries or pineapple to flavor.
- Sometimes, I will add about 1/4-1/3 avocado which helps give the smoothie a nice creamy texture while boosting the calories and healthy fat content to make the smoothie more satisfying.
- Start by adding the liquid to your blender, followed by the soft fruit. Add the greens to your blender last. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy.
You can tweak this smoothie recipe further by adding ground flax or sesame seeds or simply experiment with different fruits and vegetables until you find the combination that is right for you and your tastes.
We are always in awe of ionic designer Diane von Furstenberg! von Furstenberg stuck close to the looks that made her famous – the wrap dress, wide-leg pants and prints. “I wanted to create an oasis of peace, beauty, of color and harmony”. Spending her summers on her yacht, Diane created with that relaxed comfort in mind.
After four days of runway shows, it takes something special to get the New York Fashion Week crowd excited, and apparently Naomi Campbell is it. The queen of the catwalk, got the crowd cheering when she wore the finale look at Diane von Furstenberg’s show Sunday
We were just as charmed by Harper Beckham in her Chloé summer dress, as Vogue’s boss Anna Wintour! Our ADA Collection designer, Ada Komorniczak has been a long-time fan of the inspirational editor-in-chief of Vogue, and seeing this side of her was a treat to see!
Victoria Beckham showed her collection this weekend, with a brighter colors and and shorter hemlines than we’re used to seeing in her designs. We loved the geometric angles and the nod to the charming tennis skirt in her Spring 2014 collection!
Day One of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York!!
We love how exquisitely feminine Tadashi Shoji’s 2014 collection pieces looked – soft pastel dresses dotted with lace, embroidery and feathers.
“Women are confident enough now and know they can be taken seriously even if they wear pretty clothes,” said Shoji backstage.
Eye-popping patterns and prints were beautifully used by designer Richard Chai in his spring 2014 collections at Lincoln Center.
We can’t wait to see more of his brilliant use of textures in soft fabrics in 2014! His inspiration in just two words: “Soft geometry”.
