style of the week :-)

today:
my all time favourite...not really exciting *hehe* but very comfortable for working in the studio...clay basic linnen pants, white basic longsleeve, comfortable moroccan slippers, black & white tie dyed shawl and for a hint of summer the bright lemon citrine silk skirt ;-) ...my favourite skirt forever...probably :-)

a little moroccan holiday...

for your mind, eyes and soul this sunday, just in case if you still not booked a flight to Marrakech... ;-)

I bought the issue N. 705 of the Vogue Italia yesterday because of this:

the beautiful cover with a djellaba wearing girl...looks like a fisherman wool djellaba...but who knows? ;-) and inside....

raspberry pink walls, beauty, frutis *ahemm* fruits and a little pictures over the roofs of Marrakech....oriental delirium?

and more beauty....

and finally I felt also in love with this picture...I really love the whole picture stream (there are more pictures inside) and noticed that lots of magazines had moroccan/oriental style pic´s in their last issues....but this is the most beautiful one I watched :-)

P.S.: the outfit of the first pic is....I want to wear it, now!! ...no, I have to go back to my sewing machine...made last night the wedding dress for my (I still got no reply from this woman in morocco...) fashion show end of june in Essaouira :-) ...and have now to sew some custom made orders, too ;-) happy sunday!

19.05.2009

oh, happy day....

I asked myself many times " how long does it takes just to sew some (170 pieces) little shells on that coat"??

usually I love to do any embroidery work and can´t get enough of it, but this one with the little shells....is...*ahem* something special and needs plenty of time....o.k. I like it but it´s different...;-) but I know myself very well, I would do it again....*hehe*

The coat is still not finished on this picture, but this is one of the key pieces for my next fashion show and also a part of my summer collection "essaouira love" :-)

...the fashion show...*ahemm*after lots of e-mails to someone in Morocco I still got no response and still don´t know where and what....but I am not that sort of kind who is worry about that, the moroccan clocks are going usually lower than the german ones....so I will continue sewing and preparing everything, because I am leaving in about four weeks Germany for another nice trip to Morocco *yippie* :-)

style of the week :-)

something green.....a hint of fresh light mint green, aqua and jade feels like summer in the air :-) ....a light jade green iridescent silk skirt, the black basics I am wearing every day....silver flat ballerinas and a huge, soft handloomed pure camel wool shawl...from Najaf, Iraq :-) the Iraqi´s know what to make with camel wool... ;-)

10.05.2009

desert...

....blue, violet, iridescent ultraviolet, indigo, dark blue...?

something in between all of this colours, a mysterious shade of silk crossed my way....in a local fabric shop a few months ago....and I knew, this would be the perfect colour....

embroidery....

...delirium! :-)
there are so much nice little shops in the grand bazaar of Istanbul....

but this one....is very special for all the embroidery lovers....

filled with hundreds of vintage clothes from India, bright colours and breathtaking embroidery....

should I take this one, probably...?

...or that one? ;-) a little voice told me "buy it, now"!! ....and I bought this little turquoise jacket made from shimmery tissue silk and pinkish red trim...and of course...beautiful embroidery :-)

Sometimes I am thinking about all the stories behind the vintage treasures, the history and who made it once? I will never find out who created this beautiful jacket but its a honour for me that I found it and now want to wear it...from time to time :-)
