The things that makes me happy

Of course, beside or after my family, that always comes first;)

I recently had the request from one of my customers to make the wedding dress in black/white for her 5 years old daughter.
I must say that I was firstly confused with black wedding fact, but than I thought that it is original and different.....


So after I finally found some beautiful sumptuous black silk fabrics with silver embroidery(which wasn't such an easy task and it was good that silver could work instead of white), coordinating trims, beads and other details, I started creating the set.....my starting point was the GOLD antique dress I made a few moths ago and selling here.
Somehow, those days there was the film on the TV about Coco Channel's life and must say that I was inspired, with her evolution of hat as the detail and inevitable piece of women's look those days.....and all those minimal black and white dresses she made, and those beads, being great companion to her creations....

Well, here is what I made










and here are some pics I edited a bit in the photoshop, playing with background and layers, obtaining that vintage like look;)
