A photoshoot in The Dance Studio

Did you know that one of my childhood wishes was to become a ballerina? A real, famous ballerina in real ballet shoes! The tutus, the pink satin, the elongated elegant lines of the ballet positions, it all spoke to my heart. Grace, strength, and determination!  My first and the only pair of ballet shoes came from The Mariinsky Theatre of opera and ballet in Saint Petersburg, Russia. They were lovely. Satin pink with beautiful ribbons. Size 3 or less... Alas, my dance career never happened.

Anne&Chloe Boho Wedding


A few months ago my lovely friends Anne & Chloe contacted me with the idea of creating something unique for their wedding in August. And before I go much further let me preface by telling recent readers that I love creating outfits from scratch with a particular focus on natural fabrics and hand embroidery.

Helena and Cathal's wedding day

One of the best moments of my work is when my customers send me the pictures of their weddings or events they went to, wearing the bow ties or neck ties I made for them earlier.

Where the headbands come from

Headbands are a clothing accessory worn in the hair or around the forehead, usually to hold hair away from face or eyes. They come in assorted shapes and sizes and are used for both fashion and practical purposes. 

Princess Diana famously wore an emerald and diamond choker as a headband in Melbourne on the occassion of a state tour of Australia in 1985.
