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 !!!
 
Citrouille part 1...
 
 
 
 
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...
 
This is Citrouille Part 2...

Yellow makes us happy!!!

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...
 
 
Hours of hard work have come to an end and now it is time to preapre the small shopping bags for the opening of my shop in some days...I am quite happy with the result... What do you think ?
 
 
So the shop is now waiting for me with these small bags and angels and flowers to decorate them...

A little blogging a day keeps the doctor Away...

Dear Friends! This is so fun!! I am so happy for the response I got yesterday with the Blog so I decided to write a little here and a little there and maybe it is true , that a little blogging a day keeps the Doctor Away...:-) hihi....
Today has been a day of creating New bags for this new season. So after the Gym I drove to my studio in the city and worked the whole day on the Big bags for this season. I love to decorate them with lovely patterns on paper I find everywhere  and I have been doing this for every new season in my shop . Belive it or not the bags tend to finish when a season comes to an end... I promise , every end of season ... the bags are gone it is time to make new ones wich i Love!!!
                                                    The Margot Dresses...
 
 
So today it is time to talk about the dresses I created for this FW /18... I have named them Margot .
I am truly very happy with this collection of dresses. They are all limited edition and some of them are made one of one... As I like it to be... No massproduction here and every single one is created and produced in Sweden. This is my way to have a sustainable bussiness and it feels good!
 
My  sweet model Vilma is wearing the Margot Dress with Big Flowers a handknitted Biggie scarf and the Big glass heart necklace from this New collection. All handmade...
The dresses of this collection are very feminine and romantic. With or without flowers, in colours that we love to use in Autumn...
 
Flowers , can anyone get enough of them? I sure can not !!! With lovely fabrics with flowers  we can light up dark days of autumn and winter ahead of us... So add a little flowers to your outfits and life !!! I for sure could not live without them!!!
 
Have a nice evening Dear Friends!
