Fall ,Citrouille and the Clementine Blouses...

Dear Blog reading friends ! We are now in middle of autumn and the work with this collection so far has been a great joy for me... 
As I have written before I like to create something special for every holiday that comes during the year and this Halloween was no exception... I have named this collection to Citrouille meaning Pumpkin in french...
Cozy handknitted knits , Aline skirts and silk satin blouses where all part of this mini collection of Fall and Halloween. 
As you can see the colour of this year predominated  ( mustard yellow or pumkin yellow )and don´t they look adorable my 3 sweet supermodels...
 
 
We had the best time together , models , photographer and stylist all beginning with a cozy lunch and then finding the best location for this photo shoot. This time we worked at Ulrikdals Slottsträdgård... A wonderful place that you must visit if you are in Sweden...
Three tiny pumpkins were the only props that we took with us , the tiny one representing my loving niece Dominique. This was her first but I am sure not the last time she is my model....  Warning for Cuteness shock !!!

These three outfits Part of the Citrouille Collection are all unique and limited edition... All models wearing unique A-line skirts and cozy hand knitted knits...
For this special collection I also designed a wrap dress. Made in the softest velvet that you can find and with a print that pretty much represents this season in colour and dramatic light ... Fall expressed in a fabric...

As always I want to talk  about the design from this New season and tell you a little about what inspired me and of course to share some pictures of the garments. Today the time has come for the Dominique Blouses.. All made one of one in cotton viscose fabrics and lovely details on the back of tiny , tiny black buttons. This gives  the blouse a little luxury feeling and you can easy dress it up or down... The jewellery I created for this blouse are Big and chunky bracelets and earrings in tones that match every blouse, unique and one of one too... The inspiritaion to create these blouses I found in my garden and green house and I know that you will see why...:-)

Pink October , My shop opening and the Margot grey dress...

Dear friends! Months ago it ocurred to me that I had to create something special for the month of October . The important month for cancer awearness and so this sweater was created , a very pink sweater for a very pink month.
Last friday model Vilma and I drove to Rosendals trädgård here in Stockholm where we found the perfect atmosphere for this important photoshoot. The little hat Vilma is wearing I knitted the same day and a fresh rose from my garden gave it the final touch. There wasn´t so much time but I think that we managed to create the perfect feeling that I wanted for this important cause...
Makeup in the car and fast outfit changing and off we went to the most beautiful garden in Stockholm, Rosendals trädgård , I simply love the atmosphere here and really who does not ?!? Everyone who has not been here MUST visit...
 
 In the loving memory for every cancer patient... Familiy member and friend who has lost the battle with cancer and to the ones who continue to conquer it ! We will find a cure!!!
 
 
 
 
Today I bought  ( for my whole family )the special ribbon to support the cancer foundation here in Sweden , as I always do in October. The ribbon is designed by the swedish designer Bea Szenfeld and it is made of paper ( specially treated ), she specializes in working with paper. I love the design and happy to be able to buy it... I think that we all have to contribute with what we can for this important matter !!! Then in the afternoon they annonced that the nobel prize in Medicine will go to James P.Allison and Tasuku Honjo for their discovery of cancer therapy by inhibition of negative immune regulation !!! So wonderful news this monday of October !!! And If we continue to give and have faith we will beat this horrible disease!!!
 
 
 
My shop will open again on the 12th of October Dear friends and it will be with an Opera night . If you are interested in coming this night you will have to inbox me a message as the space is limited...
 
                                                                     Margot Grey Dress and Neko shoulder bag...
 
 
The margot dress in grey cotton jersey is a perfect match to the neko hand painted shoulder bag... This is also the last Margot dress of this Collection of dresses AW/18...
 
 
Dear friends this was all for this time...
