The Wedding Journal Show, Dublin

Blushless dresses available here

My dresses have been on a trip as well…
While I have been in Australia, my dresses have been on the catwalk in Ireland.
Ireland’s Wedding Magazine “The Wedding Journal” is hosting weddings shows in different locations.
They have been so kind and just sent me a few photos of the presentation.
Babysteps for my label. Tiny steps.
I always knew that fashion design is not the easiest business, but without a partner it’s almost impossible.
Something needs to happen, I am looking for advice.
Life surprises me all the time with good things as well as not so good ones.

A truly Blushless Bride

Posted on: Tuesday, December 7, 2010

A wonderful bride just sent me photos of her wedding in her Blushless dress.
They make a such a stunning couple and it always makes me happy to see my dresses on real people.
Unfortunately some of their guests didn’t agree with publishing photos of them in the web, that’s why I can share just a small selection of this truly fun German summer wedding. But this photo is my favorite anyway.
Thank you Sandy for sharing! And all the best for the future.

Liv is organising the upcoming photo/video shoot for the
new Blushless styles,
finishing dresses, puzzling the concept together.
Psssssssssssst, it will be 1,2,3! new styles-
And you had a little sneak-peak already.
Time is going superfast right now.
Can’t believe August is already over.
2010 is on speed. I have to go back to work.
See ya soon.


Posted on: Saturday, August 21, 2010

Here is a little sneak preview of new styles and you can see what I am up to.
Liv lacks sleep these days.
I finally started working on my dresses again, but beside a full time job
Its hard to manage everything on a way too short day of 24 hours.
I am excited though for the new styles and litres of coffee and really loud music keep me going.
Its weekend again, which means workin on my business day and night.
My biggest wish and main goal is to make a living from my designs and be able to focus on that.

I am really obsessed with grey diamonds!
GREY and also RAW diamond rings, seem to be so much cooler.
You can see my favorites above.

white peacocks, wings & supernovae

You’ve maybe seen part of my new BLUSHLESS moodboard here already.
I am in full work process right now. There are so many strong images
and ideas that will have a big influence on the new styles.
I have the idea of “giving each other/giving the bride wings” through marriage in my head, plus transformation, growing, apiring, explosions…
All translating into new shapes for wedding dresses!
I can’t stop draping and don’t get too much sleep this days, but very soon you will see the results.

Isn’t the white peocock a stunning animal?
I would love to rent one or a few for my photoshoot, but I guess that’s not gonna happen.

ELLE April 2010
Blushless has been featured in ELLE.

Happy & Hectic Days!
Its so much happening right now.
Liv is in London, still looking for the perfect place to stay.
The weather is amazing. Blooming cherry blossom trees all over the place,
sunshine, blue blue skies, and the warm spring zsa-zsa-zsu feeling inside.
I met so many inspiring great people within the last days.
Liv is in LOVE with London.

The Leblas Sequin ring in 18ct gold

Alright: This is another jewellery post…but Liv just came across this great company:

Their wide range covers everything from classical engagement rings and
wedding bands to very cool weird shaped contemporary pieces like the
Dali collection. Another plus: They are even offering bespoke service.
So if you are currently ring hunting you should definitely check them out.

Liv is busy making dresses!
The picture above shows theLIVLAVone in the making.
I had to take a photograph, since it draped so beautifully under the sewing machine.


Posted on: Tuesday, February 23, 2010


Liv decided to do wedding dresses (and evening wear)
because I love to know that every piece I create will be worn on a very special day. With a special spirit.
I like it when cool couples are getting married. In cool little dresses (and suits).
It just makes me happy.

I want to do something for all you ladies out there that are courageous and crazy enaugh to say YES!

Did you know that the Australian Government offers a special support in relationship advice?
I learned from West Aussie Wedding that all couples applying for civil ceremony will get a DVD about Building Strong Relationships (it turned out the videos are quite crap, but the idea is a good one! Every country should do that, in a tasteful way. Hello you video artists out there!? )

When it comes to advice I am totally down with this : #1 relationship advice: read it here.

I would love to hear from you guys.
Your (love-)stories, wedding planning challenges, the dress hunting & any questions about fashion/weddings.
Liv is also doing bespoke dresses: Working with you to create the perfect dress or gown that will match your style is such a great process.
Feel free to get in touch!

highfahion jellies forever

Posted on: Friday, February 19, 2010

Rad! JEAN PAUL GAULTIER X MELISSA – will be available in black, caramel, beige, lime and tangerine.

Nope.You wouldn’t convince me jellies are not cool, or sooo over,
or not suitable for a wedding!
After the great Heart Stilettos by Vivienne Westwood and the
coolest shoe in the world by Zaha Hadid, there will be a new designer style launching in June 2010 this time by Jean Paul Gaultier.
Liv loves melissa shoes: They are eco- and animal friendly and having a great design on a really good price.
Thats my story and I am sticking to it.

(Oh and they don’t pay me or offer me free shoes. I think they should though)

weddings and trees part II

Posted on: Sunday, December 27, 2009

still inspired by the wonderful tree photograph I put together a
forest inspired (wedding-) mood board. (yeah I know this is not art! )
You know already that Liv and Lav are living in a imaginery treehouse
far up in the Positivity Tree? And we are close to finally living together in London!

But back to the topic: Treeeeees.
And forest wedding- and home inspiration.
I am sure this bed (via anthropologie) with bedding (via can’t remember) like above could give you the full treehouse feeling, even in the city.
We had forest jewelry already here and I recently saw a few great pieces for men and women here at DEANNA COCHRAN
Dresses theLELALAMBone and theLALAone would be great for a forest wedding. Find out more here.

draping draping draping and a poll to you readers

Posted on: Saturday, November 7, 2009

Liv is back to full draping fun in the studio, beginning work on the toiles and sketches for the next collection.
Don’t get to excited just yet, there won’t be any unveiling until the time for the official launch of the new collection, which will still be quite a long time away…

But I promise to keep you up to date in the process though, with sketches,
first drapes and moodboards.
One new dress available on request would be this one :

I made it for myself one day in black to wear during Fashion Week,
and got so much great feedback on this one, you can now order it in white as a wedding dress.

This is a cocktail/bridesmaid dress I created for a friend, its funny to see her in a fancy dress, because she is normally a complete tomboy.
I am totally turned on right now by an old painting of Amor and Psyche.
But dont worry, the dresses wont be in old fashioned kitschy angelic stylings of course.
The painting is an inspiration, and that will translate for Global Season 2011.
Just to give you an idea of the theme for the new collection.
Question for you, do you like to read more about the design process and Blushless related things?
Do you enjoy a good mixture of general inspiration, editorial, and Blushless related topics?
Or is there anything else you would like to read more or less?
I am curious!
