Black and White

After the trade show in Paris I managed to squeeze in a visit to the gallery Jeu de Paume at Place de la Concorde where an exhibition of phtotgrapher André Kertész was on. I love black and white photographs and this was an absolute treat.

Eclat de Mode - success for FABULA

I am just back from Eclat de Mode - the international jewellery event for professionals in Paris. On my desk is a big heavy golden Sheriff star, which I am thrilled with. It came with a title of a Fashion Sheriff, which signifies that FABULA is at the cutting edge of jewellery design. It calls for a bottle of champagne to be cracked!

The Brighter the Better!

I am absolutely in love with the jazzy colours of my new Spring-Summer collection! Putting last finishing touches before showing it at Eclat de Mode - Bijorhca in Paris in a few days. The new season promises to be bursting with colours.

Colour Inspiration

It is grey and drizzly outside. I am supposed to be working on my spring-summer 2011 collection where the colours will be screaming happy and loud. But where do I find the heart-warming rainbow-coloured inspiration for that? In these Jonathan Zawada's bursting with colour landscapes. They brighten my day!

Adorable Moths

I am absolutely loving these recycled cashmere moth appliques by Stella Neptune from Los Angeles! They are iron-ons, so you can cover up those nasty holes or stains on your favourite sweaters. But I have a better idea: I want to put them on a chain and, voilà, an eco-fabulous necklace is ready in an instant!

New collection: chunky and bold!

I am so excited about my new season collection!! It will be launched at Eclat de Mode - Bijorhca in Paris later this month, so I am getting ready for a lot of stress and last minute running around! This time I decided to take a step aside from the delicate romantic mood of my previous collection and have some fun. The new collection is full of bold colours, chunky shapes and character. I am using repurposed cords, recycled and vintage buttons, silk scraps and jersey remnants. Here is a cuff bracelet from one of the lines in the new collection.
