LINEAR LOOKBOOK PART 1 (!!!)







WEARING: Melissa Araujo Vest-Dress & Tank (sold separately), Alejandro Ingelmo Booties, Vintage Bracelets.

I am extremely happy with the result of the lookbook. I can't wait to slowly unveil it here and hopefully on the website soon. Along with that I have been illustrating some of the designs - not all of them yet, in good time. This is the Vest Dress that I wore for my last post, I had a lot of requests to show how it can be worn, so here it is. I obviously love it; easy to wear and style and great for travelling (I am all about pieces that travel well). Of the 16 pieces, I wanted to show this one first. I hope you like it and don't forget once the shop is up, support independent designers! 

One last thing, I have to thank a few peeps: Kyran Yeomans for his professionalism and amazing magic! Working with him on this project was a pleasure and such a positive experience from beginning to end. Please check out his work hereJeff Nicholls, who has been nothing but supportive to me since this new collection started. Last but not least, Victoria Leeds aka Creative Marmalade for contacting me to do an interview, it was a great way to start the week. Read it in full here. Thank you!

  5. The photos look beautiful & I love the location, it really helps to show off the clean lines of the designs. As I said before the vest-dress is so perfect, such a versatile piece & I love pieces like this, that are sort of staple/classic items with a little design twist. I can't wait to see the other designs & huge congratulations again on the collection & the beautiful lookbook too! :)
