Men's Wear

Lately I've been dabbling a bit in men's wear custom design, here is a coat I created: This is a light gray wool & cashmere blend with a hidden front button placket, fully lined. I definitely like the idea of designing women's wear that is inspired by men's wear, the classic funtional aspect, clean with little to no frills;)

Tamales Bay

This weekend was spent exploring Tamales Bay and hanging out at the Oyster co. (great place to sit back, relax, eat those yummy oysters and your drink of choice in the picnic area) It was so nice to get away from the city and drive around the north coast, we caught a beautiful sunset on our way back. It was all so beautiful and peaceful:)

Wedding Bliss

I'm so excited, I just got a few pictures from one of my clients who's wedding gown I designed. This was a Jewish/Mexican wedding that took place early October, the bride wanted a wedding gown inspired by the layers in the traditional Mexican dress. The bride and groom salsa danced at their reception (which really brings out the layers of pleated organza) I'm hoping to get more pictures of this dress but it is described as a lace and pleated organza layered bustier/strapless gown with a satin ribbon and bow tie detail around the bust.
