Colder days , youtube and the margot chocolat dress...

Dear friends... Colder days are here with rain, wind and  summer days suddenly feels so far away... Still I must say that this is one of my favourite seasons of the year...Autumn...mmm ...Love!!!
The colors of the nature ,to lit a fire , the calm days at home  , cozy knits and a lot of comfort food with the ones you love  with a glass of wine or two is pretty much what autumn is for me... The inspiration is everywhere and not to mention all the wonderful cultural activities we take the time to do this time of the year , it is like a blessing for a creative soul like me....
The planning of the dinner especially on weekends are the best this time of the year , a dish of warm food just tastes better when it is cold outside and if it rains even better...
 
Isn´t Italian cooking the best comfort food in the world!?! I so agree with Sofia Loren and qoute her famous lines - Everything you see I owe to spaghetti!!! Love it!!!! My Italian heritage is never so present when it comes to food and maybe my temperament of course...
 
Dear Friends I am so happy to let you all know that my design is now on Youtube... Yeeees it is sooo wonderful and I am so happy with the result!! My Dear sister is the one that has helped me with everything regarding this and she did a great work. Just look for Andrea Labbé Design on youtube and you will find the first material of this new adventure for me...
The blouse that you will see is the Clementine Blouse with my beautiful model Vilma. Enjoy Dear friends!
 
                                         The Margot Chocolat Dress and a little handpainted leather bag...
 
 
The Margot Chocolate dress and the little hand painted bag with cats is a perfect match don't you think ? The dress is made in a super soft cotton lycra and can be matched with many colours . The dress is very easy to dress up or down as in the picture my model is wearing mesh socks with glitter ...and why not ???The bag is made in leather with the cutest naif cat painting...
 
 
Dear friends , that is all for this time! I hope that you enjoyed it!
Remember that beauty is how you feel inside and it reflects in your eyes...

Behind the scenes , rain and the Margot dress part 3...

Dear friends! I am so amazed for the wonderful response my blog is having... Thank yo so much and I hope that my work is inspiring to all of you that love sustainable fashion and things that are hand made and exclusive...
Today has been a rainy day and I decided to get some work done in my studio at home, there is always work for me here and today was no exception...
Today I want to take you behind the scenes of my work as a photographer and stylist as every photo production is designed and made by me... I love this part of my work. This particular day of photoshooting I had the help of my super creative and best photographer sister Morine. She has worked as a model for many years not only for me but for other brands like Kipling and belonged for a long time to the agency Elite Models. Having this experience she is a top make up artist ,photographer and stylist. She has just become a mom so right now she is behind the camera instead ... :-)
I have had the question so many times during these years of work from photographers that have offered their help with my photos but the answer has always been thanks but no thanks as no one could know better what I want for my pictures , that with a big exception , my sister Morine...( I am a little of a control freak when it comes to my work )...
Here she is helping me with the make up of my Super model Vilma . Preparing her for a photoshoot.
 
                                     
 
Next pictures are from the photoshoot and Morine and Vilma in action...
                                         
                                      
                                     
Working with the family is the best !!! Beside me is my mom and while Morine and Vilma work she and I and Dominique ( my sisters 3 months old daughter ) are having the best of times together ... usually laughing at my mothers fantastic humor... Yes all of you that know her knows what I am talking about... She is so funny and caring , my sweet dear little mom , I love her so...
                                     
Here a picture I took of My Super team with my new Instax camera, ... I am so happy for it!!! Thank you my sons for this gift!! My mother is the one standing with the trench coat with big flowers , she is Beautiful I knooow!!!
So this was a little from behind the scenes Dear friends ,now I have a lot of work with the new pictures that already go up tomorrow ,  I hope...

The Margot Dress , new bags and the family princess...

Dear Friends! A long and cozy day has come to an end... The days in my life are always cozy when they include visiting and cuddle with my niece... She is the princess of our whole family and I love her so... She is so cute and stole my heart from the first day she was born... I am going to spoil her , yes I am:-) and so is my husband that already buys her things on his travels around the world. Today he told me that on his trip to India two days ago he wanted to buy her a mini saree (Indian traditional dress in silk ) but that he could not find anyone in the colour that he liked , so most likely the familiy princess will get her saree some day soon...
Here she is...The one and only Dominique !!!
 
Lovely sweet niece of mine...
Arriving to my shop today was pure happiness as the bags that I have been working on were ready...
