I realized I've totally forgotten to share with you the pictures of the wedding dress I made for my best friend's wedding this autumn. (Like the schedule wasn't already full, I had to squeeze in a wedding dress as well...) So here it is - including the sketch:
Still no "official" wedding photos, so I stole some of the private ones from Facebook. Sorry M & S!
Pretty jealous of honeymoon in Paris ;)
And for those of you who wonders: Do I make wedding dresses? I do. Sometimes. And right now I'm feeling mighty inspired, so hit me up if you're planning an extravagant summer wedding - but please realize you must be able to travel for fittings etc.

Had coffee with my amazingly talanted make up artist friend Jenny Beckman today - besides from fashion gossip we started to make plans for the fashion film that will be shot this spring. So excited I can't wait!
I might have become friends with the idea of being known for leggings, but I still love EXTREME fashion. Ultra-glamour and over-the-top designs. I've had my nose in the sketching pad for several days, so concentrated I haven't even heard the phone ringing.
There's also been quite a few new pairs of leggings. Planning on making that line bigger - and more glittering! Everyday wear for eccentric people, you know ;)
PS. Don't forget to check out the remaining pieces of the blog sale - really wanna get rid of them all!
BLOG CLEARANCE SALE!

Talk about neglecting the blog.. last update was from September last year.. says pretty much about how ridiculously busy my fall season was. So let's kick off this new season with a BIG blog clearance sale! Need to get rid of the old fabrics. There's literally no space in the fabric closet for the new stuff - so the old have to go! NOW PLEASE!
MOVED THE REMAINING SALE PIECES TO THE ETSY SHOP - GO HAVE A LOOK THERE!
This will be the first round. A second one with more dresses, swimsuits etc. will come later on. Maybe in a month, maybe in two. Depends on how busy I am ;) Still only one me sewing everything...
LONDON CALLING - CALLING LONDON!

So... Fashion week is just around the corner and I happen to be in town those exact dates, even though I'm not showing this year. I will have the spring/summer collection 2013 with me and I'm available for meetings, collection viewings, test shoots, editorial shoots etc. on the afternoon of the 14th + 16-17th.
If anyone's interested please hit me up asap! Trying to plan while I'm finishing the collection!
Here's a sneak preview of the fabrics:
Oh, lord! It's Lena Quist on acid! ;) But I promise you there will be black, leather and studs - just the way we like it!
Would you wear this?

This is the most repulsive - but still kinda gorgeous - necklace I've ever seen! Cockroaches! There's no living creature that disgusts me more.
So.. would you wear it?
A must buy!

Since many of you seem to like the deep V-cut bodysuits (I love that you're daring to wear the gold hologram one!) I thought I'd give you a little shopping advise as I know it can be quite difficult to wear, especially if you've got a bigger cup size. You don't wanna focus on the whereabouts of your boobs all night!
Get Hollywood fashion tape - it really works! We got it on all fashion shows and shoots and since I'm a no-bra-girl myself I'm a frequent user. It's not just for the fashion industry and celebrities on the red carpet. It's a cheap investment to make your clothes stay where they're supposted to be, and you'll be feeling confident even in the most daring dresses and tops!
To save some money get it on eBay ;)
And since the gold hologram bodysuit has been so popular it will be staying in stock and is coming in more colours! Who want's it in silver?? :D

I've always had a crush on Nicole Kidman. I think this cover just made me like her a little bit more:
I've always handled stress very good and I'm at my best under a bit of pressure, but this is just insane. I've passed the point of being tired long time ago. But one thing that could help, maybe a little bit -as I still have no Victoria (she's still at the hospital...)- is if the Mail Service could please stop screwing things up! Jeez! How many lost packages have I had this summer? Even with tracking id/insurance they lose the stuff! Things would be better if I didn't need to do everything I do TWICE!
So focus this week is to remake and resend lost orders. And fight the Mail Service to get them to pay for the lost packages. Yeey...
And of course I'm gonna keep posting news from the basic / classic line. As if things weren't messy enough Markus' computer decided it was time to go, so the catalogue photos is taking longer than expected. But I'm still planning for the Little Black Dress Challenge as soon as we're on track with the pics.
Another personal favorite that will be released in a few days:

Anyone up for grabbing a spiked fascinator to half the price? :)
This little cutiepie was the first prototype with a bit larger spikes than the one sold in the shop. There's nothing wrong with it, I just changed the design and made a new test piece, so better than holding on to it - giving you a chance to grab it!
Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want the fascinator or would like more info!
I'm a free bitch

Haven't had a day off in over a month, but tomorrow it's happening! I've finally managed to catch up enough on work. Most orders are made and shipped, all urgent e-mails answered and I'm ready to enjoy a day in the sun doing absolutely NOTHING. I'm even gonna try to stay off Facebook and checking the e-mail inbox! (Well, I'll probably do it in the morning - but after that I'm gonna stay offline ;))
Next week we're gonna finish the basic / classic catalogue and prepare for RELEASE! With a huge campaign / giveaway - The little black dress styling challenge. More info on that early next week. I'm super excited! All I can say right now is that we'll be looking for bunch of girls with great sense of style to get a free dress - so start thinking about that presentation e-mail, extra gold star if you've got a blog or a lookbook.nu account :)

Hope you're all enjoying the summer - tomorrow I'll be too! :D

There's not an inch of my body that isn't aching. 40-something outfits shot in three days. I should be drinking champagne right now, but all I want is my bed. Sleeeeeeep! It hasn't only been shooting, in one week I've been sewing 30-40 garments while working my temporary fulltime job. I never thought in a million years I would make it. Not without Victoria. But somehow I did. So happy.
There are lots of pieces that I love in this line. It's meant to be almost like walking into my personal closet. My favorite pieces and my kind of styling. It's a LQ basics line, not a traditional one ;) Everyday wear for eccentric people. But there are also some more simple garments. Edited rock' n' roll.
There's no release date set, I'm just gonna release it bit by bit. But now: SLEEP.
