Accessories, always make or break a look, but they always complete it! Keep that in mind, when you get ready every morning! Adding a statement piece to your daily wear is like walking on a cloud and feeling truly special.
“We must buy jewelry; it identifies us with our tribe, just as body piercing identifies those of a different tribe.” – Paulo Coelho
Iris Apfel is wearing jewelry for every outfit, every day… Do you want to know why?!!! Because it gives you the opportunity to transform, to change the energy, the feel of who you are, and shine in a new light every single day. Jewelry show truly that you are unique. This is also the main reason why I create all my pieces as statement pieces and design only one of a kind… I long for the desire to make my clients feel unique and special.

The whole collection is visible Here! (97) Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring-Summer 2023 Show | LOUIS VUITTON – YouTube
I love this collection, it’s colorful and well made of course with a lot of love for detail and structure.
The whole collection vibes very positive and the floral designs are simple, but with a lot of structure in a combination of traditional and Tunisian-style crochet. The collection celebrates not only a new era for LV but also for the late designer Abloh. Check his bio HERE!
The yellow brick runway and the colorful vibes, the flags, and the mood of this collection set a new milestone in the history of LV. What I love the most about it, you probably can guess is the handmade elements, embroidery, and crochet. But I also love the fact that in my opinion, all Gender can wear it! This collection tells you that everything is possible!
Enjoy the show!

It has been a while, since I did a blog post or emailed a proper newsletter and this is for a good reason… I have been working hard to create a new collection for this year’s DesignerQ catwalk show. They had a gorgeous, 10th birthday so it was perfect to celebrate with a unique collection.
The collection is called Wild Orchids and it’s a lot of fun. Every piece is handmade in Australia and was a great integrated design, inspired by the national flower of Queensland, the orchid. I wish you all could have been there to see all the designers with their amazing creations. We had two runways shows and a great after-party. A lot of great entertainment and fun!
If you follow my Instagram @inknlacedesigns you can see a lot of IG Stories on the event and a lot of new posts about it.
Here are a few images of the collection. I posted a few also in the latest newsletter, so if you are interested, sign up and receive 15% OFF your first order!

All these gorgeous models did a fantastic job running for all the designers and I have to say that everybody did a stunning job, to make the event a success. From the fabulous goody bags to the make-up artists and the catering, DesignerQ did a fantastic job planning the event.
The red carpet was fun and my little one had a blast dressing up and so it was good to see for her what happens when designers get together.
I started to work on the collection in March, after seven months of work creating and designing the WILD ORCHIDS COLLECTION, it can be finally available.
You, know each piece is an original, so if you are not a fan of the catwalk colors, no problem! Let’s make it your style!
Lace branches out in many directions from bobbin to tape, to point lace to Irish and crosses over from crochet to knitting.

When you purchase handmade, you purchase, love, originality, quality, and keep up with a little history.
In Europe this technique is called ajour. Ajour lace also it is know as Orenburg lace knit. It comes from Rusia and it all started with a simple shawl. After that it was turned into thin scarfs and actually dresses. Catherina the Great, loved this technique so much that the woman who created the first ever shawl for her received the honor to have the knit lace named after her. It was knows as the Cossack lace. From Russia it reaches the UK and the Queen. In the late 1800th it reached the US. From that time on in the hands of Harriet Tubman it became very popular.
So you see lace knitting travels the world, so make sure you check her IG account out click HERE.
And it all started with her… the founder and genius of CHANEL, COCO CHANEL. After her, for decades KARL…. Like Chanel, as she was known as COCO, he was simply called KARL. Two unique and original people who truly changed the world and left us amazed and happy.
Now the Karl Otto Lagerfeld, passed, all we have left are his creations, that were so unique, controversial, like his runway shows and of course his quotes…. It got to a point where a new word was invented to describe his style , and opinions- KARLISM!
Yes, google it, and it will come up! I always admired his fashion and personal style. A true artist, that influenced my opinion in art and fashion of course. HIs style was even an excuse not to clean up my desk as a kid.
He had a lot to say, a man who kept for himself, in a world of art, books, and photography. I never illustrated or sketched his fashion, because simply I believed I was not worthy of this, simply because he did a fantastic job in sketch and product. But with that said I was a huge fan of his designs. He dived deep into the world of each collection he was inspired by and needed total privacy and solitude to create.
I always illustrated CHANEL perfumes and accessories…. It was and is my homage not only for COCO but also for KARL.
But now what comes next for the house of CHANEL? The new creative director is the Right Hand of the Maestro Virginie Viard. Click HERE to find more out about her! If she was the right hand I think we can only smile to what Chanel will have to offer in the near future! I am looking forward to see the next Chanel collection and so should you!
