Spring Sparkles

Since this beautiful spring weather has hit Paris, I have been full of inspiration. The bright days, and vibrant flowers in bloom make me want to create! So, I just thought I would share a sneak peak of what sparkles are currently on my desk. I just finished three more hand embroidered Swarovski cuff bracelets. These will look beautiful when worn outside in the bright sunshine to catch their sparkle!
Each cuff is hand stitched with Swarovski crystals, vintage sequins, and glass beads on vintage Parisian silk. They are backed with Ultrasuede and finished with ribbon to tie around your wrist. These are currently made to order, so if you are interested, please send me an email with your color choices to Each bracelet is priced at $250 Canadian each.

Also on my work table are these beautiful sparkling sterling silver and crystal bracelets. These bracelets are going to my Canadian customers, but there will be more available soon on Otherwise, you can contact me to special order one!

Models, After The Show

After attending each show at Paris Fashion Week, I usually hang out for a little while after the show is done. Once the show is over and all of the fashion elite have left the building, the workers from behind the scenes of the shows start coming out. There are makeup artists wheeling their cases full of makeup behind them, hair stylists with bags full of sprays, straighteners and curlers and then there are the models. They are usually rushing to their next show to be back on the catwalk within the hour, yet they always find time stop and pose for the paparazzi waiting outside the venue. The following pictures were taken after different shows at various venues around Paris. Some models are still sporting hair and makeup from the show that they have just walked for.

Paris Street Style

One of my favorite parts of going to Paris Fashion Week is getting to see the street styles outside of the shows. Everyone puts their best fashion foot forward and dresses in their most fabulous outfits to be seen at Paris Fashion Week. There are many types of people that attend the fashion shows, from editors and writers to stylists and buyers. They all have their own sense of style and I have tried to capture some of them that I spotted throughout the week. Some are beautiful and elegant while some are quirky and outrageous. Either way, I enjoy the parade of looks that I am able to see during Fashion Week.
