Marni for H&M


With Versace still in the shops, H&M has already announced their next collaboration with Marni. On March 8th 2012, a Marni at H&M collection is released worldwide! The spring collection will have women and menswear clothes as well as accessories. I think it will be great as I love Marni, always playful and elegant. Can't wait!

Digitaria's presentation at 4FASHIONSHAKE IV wasn't just a fashion show, it was more like a music and art performance.

Etten composed the original music and performed live on stage along with Niadoka.

The dark and twisted (pun intended) concept was conceived by artist H.O.P.E. who has worked before both with Etten on her music video for 20.45 sling directed by Babis Makridis and also Eleftheria Arapoglou of Digitaria, designing a series of t-shirts titled "The birth of n.7" that came out on December 2010.

New in: brogues

broques
I love brogues lately because they are chic and comfortable at the same time. I prefer wearing heels, especially platforms, but sometimes my feet need their welldeserved break and why not in a fancy pair of brogues from the H&M trend collection? Already one of my favorite pairs of shoes.

Btw, I am stuck in bed feeling sick, I think I got the flu or something. Aargh, I hate it.. I hope it will pass soon.

Im going to sell a mini collection at Audrey Grace!




I am making a mini capsule collection inspired by birds and birds nests.  The color palette will be a twist on primary colors.  I will be using velvet and silk wool jersey to ad the perfect about of fuzzy texture.  While I was creating this mini inspiration collage and shopping for fabrics
I absolutely could not wait to see them ready to go to their new homes!!  

I will update soon with progress pictures!

My collection will be sold exclusively at Jaclyn's pop up shop called Audrey Grace 
The shop will pop up in her home town: Jackson Mississippi!  
Check out her blog for more information and to see some of my friends interviews for the shop (Hannah and Ashley ), and pop in for a visit on Dec. 17th!

Versace for H&M

I was so lucky to get the satin skirt, biker jacket and ring from the Versace for H&M collection, which are my favourites of the collection. The quality of the items is very good and I love the jacket and skirt because they have the complete Versace staple on it; leather and satin filled with studs. The bag is from ASOS, the nailpolish is Chanel Péridot and the wedges are from Ebay.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
