Headscarf Sold to Dallas

One of our new customers from Dallas, United States was quite interested in fabric that can be used for headscarf. Honestly, I am not a native English speaker, the word headscarf and scarf does not differ much in my mind. My first reaction to the word or the idea of headscarf was something women wear, hiding the look and facial expression of a lively person. Perhaps some may call it mysterious, though it seems more religious to me. Even at the time I wrote these words, I still did not… Continue

In the middle of Yuan Rising—Apparel Evolve in China

Chinese exporters have been hurt by the yuan's rise against the U.S. dollar. Since July 2005 when Beijing ended a direct link between the currencies, the yuan has risen by 16 percent against the dollar. Local inflation in China also has been a challenge for exporters who have seen prices soar. However, Chinese suppliers have been able to remain competitive in the face of inflation. Personally, I don’t think the wholesale movement will be away from China. You know, I am not a person of gassy, so… Continue

what I plan to do

My mom tells me everyday that I should challenge myself and become a worldwide fashion designer...

That is not my dream.

I see too many big time, high profile, fashion designers everyday in the media. I even get angry that I can't look as glamorous as the girl on T.V. I know that other regular teens may feel the same as I do, and I feel their pain. No one can look as fab as the rich and famous. That is why I want to design for the teens that want to look and… Continue

Treasure Hunt: The Wierd and the Wonderful

When I realized how mundane and mediocre my wardrobe was, I began the hunt for ways to inject personality and individuality into my closet: enter Etsy acts as a storefront for handmade goods, from art to handbags to jewlery and more! Not only is Etsy your place for "all things handmade," but it's also a great place to find vintage clothes and items that are out-of-stock or aren't made anymore. I recently ordered a bag from a vendor in Switzerland and let me tell you, it's incredible!… Continue

Spendthrift: Clutches

While perusing the internet this month, I found myself looking for a casual clutch. Something that was fun enough to wear during the day with jeans , yet refined enough to pair with pumps and a cocktail dress. To my surprise, it was Old Navy that came to the rescue! These great wooden-handle clutches offer a wide variety of colors and patterns, but this navy and white pattern are my favorites!… Continue

February's Obsession

Ok, I just can't help obsession this month is shoes. Surprise, surprise; like every other girl on the planet, right? Well, there is a particular type of shoe that I cannot seem to get enough of: round toe, platform pumps. From go-with-anything black to every jewel tone under the sun, I am love with these heels. I have recently started an internship that requires I dress "businessy" everyday, so pumps have become part of my life in a whole new way. After quickly discovering how… Continue

February's "It" Girl

This month's "It" Girl is none other than the classic beauty Scarlett Johansson. Scarlett adds visual interest to her outfits by infusing classic silhouettes with shots of color. While she favors the more timeless styles, like the little black dress (always reinvented of course) and luxurious fabrics in neutral shades, Scarlett always dresses to compliment her fair skin.

Clothes are only part of Scarlett's passion for fashion: her use of bright… Continue

Supplies Search


I'm looking for silversmithing supplies, metal, soldering equipment, chemicals, etc. I'm also interested in good quality (not too expensive) stones, beads, cabs even raw cut stones., Boro glass and lampwork beads, pendants etc.

There are so many suppliers out there I would rather trust your experience than spend hours, days, weeks, etc. checking them out. (I do have a wholesale license.) As it is I'm spending too much time not creating.

The shoe collection is strictly related to the ready-to-Wear and the leather good line.

Here is the sophisticated spirit of the brand reinterpreted in a more contemporary key, not only in the "couture" shoes - with their very precious details such as embroideries and strass and bead jewellery - but also in the daytime city-life styles.

Different materials are blended into a mix which is both precious and… Continue
