L’amour Fou & Happy Christmas

Posted on: Thursday, December 23, 2010

It’s Christmas time. Time for big love stories. Time for movies.
Time for fashion inspiration.
The documentary about Yves Saint Laurent tells the story about
the love of his life Pierre Bergé.
It’s always good to have a creative partner in crime.
They have been a couple for 50 (!) years building their business,
sharing their creativity and supporting each other with love.
A documentary I am really looking forward to watching.
May you all have a wonderful Christmas time!
And here comes the trailer:

It feels good and NEW.
Go for it!

how to stay hot in a chilly summernight

Posted on: Thursday, May 13, 2010


Ohhhh these summernights! Liv is getting excited, for the first time in her life, she’ll see a movie in a drive in!!!
They just created an urban drive in in east London, with original 50’s cars, all already set up! I can’t wait!

I think this piece would be great to wear with a wedding dress, to cover your shoulders and keep you hot during a chilly summernight!
I want!

coffee & home

Behind every successful woman is a substantial amount of coffee.
And even if I am living in London now, I will NEVER switch to tea.
High on caffeine, I will always create the best dresses.
As much as I love grabbing my coffee to go in the morning:
The most important item on my ONE-DAY-WHEN-I-AM-GROWN-UP-WISHLIST is my very own espresso maschine.
(Maybe with a few packages of David Lynch Organic Espresso.)

Is there anything you always wanted for your home?

P.S: I start to ask myself when this “one day” will be.
Will Liv ever settle down and start to build a nest?
Will this restless feeling ever stop?
And will there be someone waiting for me with a coffeemaschine?

Be what you would seem to be

I finally saw ALICE IN WONDERLAND and loved it.
It’s a really entertaining movie, well photographed and full of inspiring pictures.
I wish I would have been the costume designer.
My life currently feels like Alice In Wonderland.
So many things are happening, everything is changing,
everything is feeling so surreal. Time is running.
I am really waiting to wake up, realising I had a really weird dream.
Liv is visionary Alice facing ridiculous challenges.
Be what you would seem to be.

about happy endings part I

Posted on: Thursday, March 11, 2010

Liv believes in happy endings.
Thats what I said about my last collection and the inspiration.
So there it is: The happy ending of my favorite movie.
(Yes it comes with turkish subtitels, I couldnt find another version)
Fairys are so smart! I love this ridiculous sparkling fairy.
David Lynch is the greatest.
If you are truly wild at heart you’ll fight for your dreams.
Don’t turn away from Love.
You can deal with everything and more!

Romy Schneider!
Love this filmposter. Really fits into my moodboard.
I think Romy has an incredibly modern look on this one-
a bit Kate Moss like. I mean the other way around obviously.
I have to see this movie asap.

Ive just discovered the trailer for the upcoming story book adaptation of
WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE by Spike Jonze and I can’t stop watching it.
It just makes me happy. This could be the best movie of the year!
Why am I posting about a kids movie without any fashion or wedding theme?
I think this is a really healthy escape if you are stressing out about your wedding plans, or just anything that might be getting you uptight!

This movie is about LOVE, about friendship & about GREAT MUSIC
(soundtrack by ARCADE FIREas well as music in the feature by
Karen O from the YYY’s
as well as Carter Burwell!))
Seeing all this MONSTERS just feels so so so very good in this polished fashion world.
I love the monsters, they are dirty, they are honest, they are weird,
they are blushless
, they are cute in a rough way and they look like they really know how to party!

I wanna hang out with them NOW!

Oh How Fashionable Is Wonderland

I am sick of Disney Princesses, but when I saw pictures from Tim Burtons
ALICE IN WONDERLAND (with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, by the way…)
I changed my mind a little bit.
Doesn’t this look like a high fashion campaign?
And she is wearing an amazing “bridal” outfit.
I can’t wait to see the movie, the whole setting, the colors and costumes look pretty cool. We have to wait until spring next year though.
You can find the trailer here. Have a magical weekend!

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Posted on: Friday, June 26, 2009

Rainbow Week! Gay festivals and parades all over the world! Hooray!
My neighbours girlfriend surprised her with a visit all the way from Sydney to celebrate with her love in Berlin!
Their love inspired me to do this gay wedding post.
I guess most inspiration for my blog is from people anyway!
But I did some extra research on gay wedding themes.
I found two rad gay weddingblogs for you:
So you are enGAYged and SteadyHappy

Love and Pride is a jewellery label that supports gay marriage and also offers some information about the topic on their website.

Recommend watching this movies: Milk.The story of Harvey Milk, and his struggles as an American gay activist who fought for gay rights and became California’s first openly gay elected official and Fucking Åmål Two teenage girls in small-town Sweden. Elin is beautiful, popular, and bored with life. Agnes is friendless, sad, and secretly in love with Elin.

Check out this stunning real gay marriage featured on a practical wedding few months ago (if you haven’t seen it already!)
And now I will get me some rainbow accessories…

Wild At Heart

Posted on: Monday, June 1, 2009

If you haven’t already seen it I would recommend watching
one of my favorite movies Wild at Heart directed by David Lynch.
It was the movie that inspired my launch collection for blushless.
Its really rock’n’roll, full of weird characters….its also a roadmovie and great lovestory! All in one!
I designed the Tops of 2 blushless dresses inspired by the hot leather bra
Lula is wearing in many scenes! And now: Better put on your snake skin jacket…
Don’t forget the popcorn….and ENJOY!

Let’s share the LURVE !

Posted on: Saturday, May 9, 2009

Woody Allens amazing declaration of love in Annie Hall
(yes i would recommend that movie!!!) inspired the title of a great new magazine project:

Do you love me?
Love is too weak a word for what I feel –
I luuurve you, you know,
I loave you, I luff you, two F’s,
yes I have to invent, of course I – I do, don’t you think I do?

Taking inspiration from this charming dialogue, a group of of passionate people based in Berlin, have launched a magazine called LURVE.They were looking for a fashion publication ahead of trends and with more depth, yet visually striking.
Miles away from the usual fashion glossy, the magazine puts the emphasis on emerging designers and artists, new talents and creators of our future.
Crossing the fields of arts, fashion and music, LURVE is the voice of a more demanding generation eager to explore contemporary culture and creation, beyond the mainstream.
Pretty cool,huh?

<small class="tooltip"><em>black cat white cat <span class="low">by</span> Emir Kusturica</em></small>

…I am crazy about movies!!!
Movies are definitely my main inspiration and my treat after a
never-ending week of work…they recharge my batteries and give me new Glitter to move on with my projects…
So here it comes another all time favorite:
Black Cat, White Cat directed by Emir Kusturica
My vision of a perfect wedding has always been to have this massive party :
Celebrate the love of your life! cheers! yeeeehaah!

Wedding traditions in eastern Europe are indeed like that:
Drinking, singing and Dancing are in fact the most important things at an east European wedding.
In Poland they celebrate with lively polka music and dancing.
If a Polish bride can drink from her glass of wine, and not spill a drop, she is considered lucky. Cheers!
A funny hat will be placed on the polish groom’s head, representing the wish that the marriage will be full of happiness and laughter.
In bulgaria a bride as to be asked 3 times to marry her signifcant other, and even in ancient times, it was her own decision! I am impressed!
The Violin is still the favorite instrument at a wedding in Hungaria, for traditonal folk music and gypsy style songs! Cheers to that!
Greek brides wore traditional wedding veils of yellow or red, which represented fire. Really hot!
Consider mixing and matching international customs to your wedding…
Make your own tradition!
