on Wednesday, March 30, 2011

   Located only 10 km north of Varanasi, Sarnath is probably the most sacred place for Buddhists. This is where Gautama Buddha first taught the Dharmachakra or the Wheel of Law in 528 BC, right after his enlightenment.

I'll leave you with one of my favorite Buddhist quotes: "Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared"

DIY Jil Sander market bag

on Friday, March 25, 2011

Only Raf Simons can make a plastic bag the it bag of the season. And he did. I'm seeing the Jil Sander market bags everywhere! 
The pattern of this bag is shamefully simple so I thought why not to make my own. 
I used some hot pink fabric but I think I'm also going to make one in black leather.
Follow these instructions to make one for yourself.

Freehand

on Thursday, March 17, 2011

Introducing you a collection by Anu Samarüütel-Long called 'Freehand'.
It's always very interesting to see what's behind the collection and where the inspiration came from. As an example how were the prints on dresses developed from simple graphite drawings and what's the inspiration behind the jewelry line. For all that take a look at Anu's blog - FashionSaboteur
I put together some moodboard-kind-of-things of the collection, which was presented here few weeks ago at Kuldnõel gala. I was also lucky to model for her at the gala, so I could see all the details closely;)
