New collection!

Finally, here's a peek at the new collection! These are my favourite images from the photoshoot we did back in July. The theme for the shoot was icy and dreamlike, and if you look very closely you can even see frost crystals on model Veronika's eye lashes!

Eclat de Mode tradeshow

I will be in Paris next week for the Eclat de Mode tradeshow to present the new collection. It's both scary and exciting, but I am really looking forward to it!

This is a trade only show so if you are a boutique owner and would like to come and and say hello, I will be at stand no. H73.



I have some great news for everyone, we've now got a little discount voucher exchange going on with the lovely Rob & Elena at LadyUmbrella! With every order from my little shop you will receive a discount voucher for LadyUmbrella t-shirts and tote bags.

Spanish Illustrator Elena had lived most of her life in Madrid & Barcelona, and when she came to Dublin first all she could see was umbrellas everywhere, hiding people's faces...so she came up with the idea for Lady Umbrella, a lady with an umbrella for a head! Lady Umbrella lives in a surreal world full of clouds and feathered little friends.

This is my favourite of Elena's illustrations at the moment - it's pretty surreal, and of course it's got a teapot, how could I resist!? It doesn't exist as a t-shirt design but Elena & Rob have promised limited edition prints so keep your eyes peeled!


Summer Sale!

So... I am back from my lovely holidays in Brittany and it's finally time for my summer sale! You can go straight here to see all the items that are reduced. Hope you find something you like!

Speaking of my holiday, I was at the Isle of Groix for a couple of days and spotted a beautiful house, whose colour scheme bore an uncanny resemblance to my Alone in Kyoto collection! And there I was, thinking I was being original... Maybe I should have slipped a business card under their door, hehe!


Behind the scenes...

So...I've been very busy designing the new collection and I was really looking forward to our photoshoot! I haven't seen the final images yet but here's some 'behind the scenes' pics from Friday's shoot. Can't wait to see the result!


Sweet things from Japan

Ok, so it's been way too long since I last wrote here... I am just back from Japan where I was looking for beads for the next collection (yes, already!). So here's a few pictures of sweet things I came across...

This one was taken at Lulu café in Koenji, look at the little plush cat holding the bill with its paws!

And I also went to this place in Tokyo where you can pay to hang out with cats for a while! As with everything over there, it's very cute. Although the cats are a bit blasé, they get pet so much! They have lots of toys to play with and lots of beds and trees and even a special cat tv!


Corcra boutique

My vintage button rings are now available in the lovely Corcra Boutique in Clonmel, yay!


After the show

So that's it, the show is over... It was a great success and I can't wait to do it again! Already thinking about the next collection... But I'd better focus now, I have to turn myself a little jewellery making factory to deliver to all the boutiques asap!

But just before I get back to work, here's a few pics from the show


Eclat de mode - Bijorhca

I will be presenting my Spring/Summer 2010 collection at the Bijorhca - Eclat de Mode tradeshow in Paris - Porte de Versailles from Saturday 23rd January to Tuesday 26th January 2010. This is for trade only.

So if you have a boutique and would like to see the new collection, please come and visit me upstairs at stand J53. Hopefully the crazy (but amazingly beautiful!) weather will be going back to normal before that!
