One of the best things about being a boutique owner is that I get to dress the mannequins. We have 8 in total and I enjoy getting them dolled up each week. Monday is the day they each get a new outfit. Below are the highlights from this week, please let me know which one is your favourite.
Karla Spetic grey silk dress with Alldressedup pink silicon belt, a little ‘Lady Gaga’.
This is the Spijkers en Spijkers range. Twin sisters Truus and Riet have a knack at creating the most unusual pieces in the finest silks. The galaxy drape dress is a favourite, and the Brooks sheer top is amazing on (over a black camisole). The Dutch sisters reside in Arnheim, the Netherlands. They have won many awards at the fashion school and their collection gets stronger each season. This is the current Spring/Summer 2010 collection.
This amazing bodycon dress is created by German twin sisters Danny and Annette Felder, of the eponymous label Felder Felder. The London based label has a huge celebrity following. Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rhianna, Florence and the Machines are just a few of their fans.
This is an Alldressedup outfit- silk one-shouldered top with the cutest shorts which have folding detail at the cuffs. You can also see an Alldressedup leather bag with shoelace handles and one of my favourite necklaces- hand-made from silicon and perspex. Trust Alldressedup to think of working with such cool media! The leather ring belt is from Felder Felder.
This is the most amazing (and dearest) dress in our store this season. A fantastic Felder Felder creation. This sequinned dress is lined with fine silk. Definitely for the fashion-forward! The bracelet is actually part of a necklace from Alldressedup.
Here is the Felder Felder rack. We only stock 1 in every size. There are a few one-off pieces, like this red dress. The power-mesh material used is genius, it gives the best body-con shape even for those who don’t have it.
We’ve had another blessed week. I’ll leave you with the ‘3 sisters’. From left to right:
1. Alldressedup silk jumpsuit, Alldressedup nacklace, Felder Felder spikey belt
2. Karla Spetic silk top and Felder Felder cross skirt
3. Spijkers en Spijkers galaxy drape dress with Alldressedup necklace (the golden part can be worn as the bracelet)
This is the photo wall, I hope next time I can snap up my customers rather than the mannequins =)
