Techno Kangourou


-Eller hættetrøje på godt dansk. Men med indbyggede høretelefoner - det er da en god og sjov idé. Du lægger Ipod´en i lommen og forbinder den med høretelefonerne, som kommer ud af et snørehul i lommen og løber op igennem den blå kanal ved lynlåsen og videre ud gennem snørerne. 
Set i forskellige farvekombinationer hos Old Navy til kun 20 dollars. Det er da et fund til prisen.

ROCKLAND

-Er et af Montreal´s utallige shoppingcentre. For her shopper man altså igennem. . .
Sådan virker det i hvert fald i forhold til hvad jeg er van til. Men der bor jo også omkring 3 millioner mennesker her, så vareudvalget er unægtelig også noget størrer.

Størrer dispays,

Fantasifulde displays,

Flere seje sko, her fra D & G.

Titlen siger vist alt, understreget af en Bh-juledekoration.

DISCRETION!

-Is a matter of respect and honour. Just for you to know - I am only showing pictures here on my blog, with the permission of models and customers of course.

As a starting point, I am open for any inquiry. But I am not doing whatever at any price. I reserve the right to decline a commision, if I don´t agree with the idéa/design.

Mostly for my own sake, but for the customers as well.

AMAZING GRACE


Of course it´s the singer/performer Grace Jones, I am referring to. Not the song amazing Grace. I was just associating with Amazing Lace, an article by Suzy Menkes about one of the trends right now.

But do you remember Grace Jones from the 80´ies ?
I was a big fan and still listens to her songs from time to time. They still hold up to this day I think. Apart from that, I was very inspired by her looks and attitude.

Grace Jones was born in 1948 on Jamaica, but moved to Syracuse, New York with her family in 1965. She is a model, sanger and actress as well. She was discovered by and in a relation with the stylist, Jean-Paul Goude in  a number of years.
Together they created her very strong image, that with the music, made her famous and an Icon for those years. 
I am sure that Annie Lennox and Lady Gaga for example are some of the singers that was inspired by her. If you want to know more, read here .

BLACK SILHOUETTES

Dressing up in black is of course always an easy option. 
But be careful how you do it. Black sends various signals. . . You can look very sexy, dangerous, casual, intellectual or even boring if you don´t want to bother. 

If you choose black consciously, it is always a god idea to mix different silhouettes and stuctures of fabric to gain a more dynamic look. Some of your items could be partly transperent, you could mix shiny and matte, silk with velour and so on. 

Accessoiries could also help to make you stand out. Here are a few ex- amples of different silhouettes for inspiration. . .

THE CUSTOMER-RELATION

If you like me are working with all aspects of  fashion, right from the idéa/ design and patternmaking to the execution of the final product, it is very important to be aware of what kind of customer you are targeting.

My customers are primarely very style- and quality-conscious women, that knows what they want and don´t compromise on quality and fit.

On the other hand, it is also important that the customer knows who they are dealing with and what they will get when they approach me. That is why I am writing this !

My passion is to realize your dreams and fantasies for the big moments in life. By creating something unique, I am putting my mark on and contributing to making your day one to remember.

The designphilosophy, that is the foundation for all my creations, I´ve de- veloped through time and my ongoing creativity, through impressions and experiences, that gave me inspiration.

The mark of my creations are conscious design, a perfect fit and good quality, that I find of equal importance to enhance your style and per- sonality.

In reality, creating is a way of communicating and expressing yourself. I am doing what I am, because I can´t help it. Of course I hope that you are able to appreciate and like it.

When all comes to all, it is really a matter of taste, to be conscious about yourself and your surroundings.

If you can relate, you probably found the right guy.
I´m looking forward to meet you and help you out.

SPARKLING SEQUINS


This top with sequins belongs to the parties of the season. But it is not the easiest fabric to work with. Since the fabric itself is quite effect full, it is always a good idea to make the cut as simple as possible.

After a few trials, the result turned out like you see here. Basically the sequins-top is made out of three squares of different sizes, with an open back and a deep cowl in the front.
