new work

With all the fashion week talk that is flying around the world - I must say I wish I was in on all the action.  Living back in London...pounding the pavement enroute to Somerset House...ready to see Giles, Christopher Kane or Erdem.  High heels and even higher hopes for a new season of fresh fashion.

Anyway back to real life here in South Africa.  I did decide to borrow some inspiration from afar and designed this new necklace.  I am working on a range of them which has been both rewarding and challenging.  Imagine me...twelve at night...sewing on buttons...cursing and wishing I could go to bed, but so involved that I have to finish.  Imagine the next day at work...bleary eyed and still cursing due to being too tired.  All worth it in the end...

Inspiration via Garance Doré
I do think that this necklace belongs to me though, as I can't quite part with it.

Have a happy, fashionable week!
