The Black Story. January.

Now when January is almost at the ending point I can see, that it was the black themed month for me.
Almost every piece I've done is black, heavy detailed and beadad with hematite stones, glass, beads and crystals. Some are simply clustered, some have strict ornamentation. Epaulets are really weighting close to 0.5kg per pair.. pretty much for Your fragile shoulders and pricey for shipping, but never mind - that's the cost of having real thing.
Black ans silver.. Hmm.. I feel like need some colors now ..

You can find natural teas, eye masks, herbal pillows and soaps, etc.. but my most favorite and geeky so far is this *** as well as vintage treasures from Liepāja.

Good luck and be healthy!

In Shakespeare's Dreams

I was having strange nightmare about having to live in medieval society.. it was mix of theatrical, burlesque, mystical symbols, so in the morning I was completely ready to create something influenced by Shakespeare and dark medieval secrets.

It was even more - etsy has plenty of items inspired by literature and history these days, so I gathered some of my favorites in treasury. Welcome to C&C

Well.. Have a great and dreamy weekend!

Always Flattering..

Sometimes i feel very insecure about my creations and how they are doing out there in big world. It is always soooooo good and flattering to hear some news from the new owners..

No idea about the magazine, couse I couldn't found it on google, but never mind.. It is good news anyway :))

14 Ways to green the military fashion trend - by Jasmin Malik Chua (03/24/10)
Published on Ecouterre
Accidently found this article and was so surprised see my design on the list :)) YEEE!!

Ecouterre is a website devoted to the future of sustainable fashion design. They’re dedicated to showcasing and supporting designers who not only contemplate cut, form, and drape, but also a garment’s social and environmental impact, from the cultivation of its fibers to its use and disposal. Their mission: To follow the evolution of the apparel industry toward a more environmentally sound future, as well as facilitate a conversation about why sustainable fashion matters.

In September 2009, Jill Fehrenbacher, founder of sustainable-design website, launched Ecouterre to dispel any disparaging stereotypes that still cling to the concept of eco-fashion (hemp ponchos, anyone?), while highlighting innovations in fiber technology that will help pave the way for designers and manufacturers to embrace sustainable materials and processes.

Her goal with Ecouterre: To get both designers and consumers to start taking the issue of sustainability in clothing design more seriously. Frustrated by constant criticism for her fashion-design coverage from hardcore greenies and eco-snobs who dismiss the impact that clothing design has on our planet, Jill was compelled to launch a site dedicated exclusively to eco-fashion to raise awareness of these issues.
