nina dolcettis amazing shoefactory

Posted on: Thursday, November 5, 2009

Aren’t these shoes hot?
They are designed by Nina Dolcetti and handmade in a small family run factory in East London!
Aware of waste within the fashion industry and the environmentally unfriendly effects of leather tanning, Nina Dolcetti shoes are designed and constructed to reuse off-cuts and unwanted pre-consumer waste to create daring, architectural and design led pieces that are as avant garde as they are elegant.
Want want want want want…..

WOLF MEN or diamonds are a GUYS best friend…

Posted on: Sunday, September 27, 2009

Wolf men at Prada (click on image for reference)
diamonds are a GUYS best friend…
Prada recently jumped on the creepy animal mask trend, and I was gently reminded by my best friend in NYC
who loves wearing his wolf mask at parties. I MISS NYC! so bad. BUT:
London based design duo ORIA did great Wolf inspired jewelry for guys,
that would also make great groom accessories:

This collection is based on the Red Wolf (Canis rufus)
10% of our profits from the sale of these pieces will go to the IUCN Red List.
Check out their ethical jewelry collections here

I had a fabulous Monday afternoon, watching the catwalk show of Enamore.
Drinking vodka martini for lunch while watching a burlesque dancing performance all made for a really enjoyable show.
All the girls were great dancers and the Lingerie looked amazing.
The vintage inspired designs really took Liv far away, back into artistic burlesque shows of the 1920´s.
The designer Jennifer however is really forward thinking, only working with sustainable fabrics and producing everything locally.
Her Bridal Lingerie is lovely. It was great to meet her.
Liv is already a fan of the Nipple Tassles & Pasties

See more pictures of the show here

on the 22nd of September
4pm to 8pm, Room 308! So all Brides to be can come buy, try dresses on, have a look around and Liv will be available for a chat! Looking forward to see you there!

I am exhibiting for LFW from the 18th-22nd for Press and Buyers only, and from 4pm on the 22nd to the public as well. Please get in touch for appointments.

If you should be in Berlin over the coming months, stop by here.
Especially good on Saturdays when there are special events and live music.
If you are not in Europe but interested in a dress just contact me via the shop.

And now I have to pack my bags…I am very excited to meet the other designers.

Liv In Lingerie-Mood

Posted on: Wednesday, September 2, 2009

Liv was in lingere mood today…whatever that means!?
My new favorite Lingerie Label is ENAMORE, not only because
it’s eco fashion and they are also doing a bridal line,
but most of all because I like the cheeky and cool designs.
The brand was born out of Jenny Ambrose‘s love for vintage sewing, patterns, fabrics, clothing and books from which Ambrose takes inspiration to create an exciting range of lingerie; a new twist on the modern Pin Up.

…for Liv to visit Lav in London again.
Tonight! Timing is everything…
Especially in fashion,
so Liv thinks clockwork cufflinks are a great idea.
Im really looking forward to London:
Will be great to suck in some new Inspiration.
Theres been so much to catch up on after fashion week.
It was really great though, met some very nice people,
shared some great ideas.
Studio is a mess. I am a bad bad housekeeper.
Was nice to be at Hotel Adlon last week.
But: Great Projects are coming.
Im currently planning an exciting photoshoot.
Then some interesting collaborations are on their way…
And more more more…
Dreamsequins just posted a nice interview about Blushless.
I was wearing a black dress during fashion week.
It was my own design and it got people asking: when will Blushless
present a second line thats not exclusively bridal?
answer: well, I am thinking about it, ok?
And you, my dearest coolest blog readers will be the first
who will be informed :)

coffee junkie meets eco fashion junkie

Posted on: Tuesday, May 19, 2009

I love coffee, I love to be up to date in the eco-fashion scene…
Plus: I really enjoy conversations with visonary people.
Going crazy about new ideas…It was about time for a
coffee meeting with eco fashion junkie Phil Gloeckler.
The upcoming Berlin Fashionweek (1st -4th of July) will have
a lot of cool new eco fashion platforms.
He is consulting the Premium for its Green area.
Liv loves: GREEN, a great new concept for highfashion, luxury-
and gourmet products! Its a showroom that takes place in
Berlins amazing Hotel Adlon Kempinski! lobbyweb
This will definitely be a special one!
Get in touch for appointments.
If you are not in the industry come over to play at the 4th of July!
This day will be open to public!

Other green tradehows will be The Key, which repesents
the sports- and streetwear market of green fashion .
Some good reasons to come to Berlin!!!
You heard me! It will be great.
And now I will write my guest post for eco fashion junkies!

Art.23 of the Universal declaration of human rights:…

Posted on: Friday, May 15, 2009


…everyone who works has the right to just and favorable remuneration ensuring an existence worthy of human dignity”, the ethics are in the name. Art.23 is an amazing line of highquality basics.

What happens when French fair trade brand Alter Mundi recruits British
Karl Lagerfeld stylist and man about town Adam Love to design their fashion label?Perfection!
Inspired by the timeless allure of the tuxedo, Love designs beautiful basics with an elegant twist that can adapt to any situation from office to evening and weekends too.

A designer called AdamLove, ethical production and very cool mens clothes…
sounds like a good choice for a groom to me! I would suggest a Fedora with the style above…
Wouldn’t it be also a hot green decision to go without shirt?
(they sell great shirts though!) ; )
