October was Hunter Valley month, I went up there for weddings every single week and then one week even twice,
as we had a beautiful collaboration happening up there. The shoot was brought together by the talented Headpiece designer Yummii & I,
being inspired by Brigitte Bardot. Showcasing her work and the stunning Hunter Valley Weddign Venues: Roberts Circa 1876 and The Convent,
this shoot was pure fun to work on and we also had the most wonderful luxury accomodation and yummiest catering, a dream job! Thanks again to everyone involved.

L’amour Fou & Happy Christmas

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:

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.

i just cut my hair off…

There will be a chihuahua puppygirl in my life in a few months!!!
That’s not quite a wedding related topic but it will inspire me for the upcoming dresses.

I would be happy if you want to join in with name suggestions,
or general advice, book recommandations for chihuahuas or whatever.

This has been the first time in my life that I am without a dog.
It just doesn’t feel right, something is missing.

Names that I like:

  • Lychee
  • Paula
  • Frida
  • Lula
  • french muses or let’s dance!

    Today we got a fancy sexy music mix of Beattrainproductions:
    Listen to it here.

    About this mix
    My name is Ari. I work as a DJ and split my time between New York City and Boston. I am often booked to DJ at weddings in which the couples are looking for a very eclectic and distinctive mix of music. Recently, I was thrilled when a couple asked me to come up with a mix of retro french pop songs for their cocktail hour (one of my many record fetishes). Here’s a mix of some of the sultry, sexy french records I played from the likes of Bridget Bardot, Serge Gainsbourg and France Gall.
    If you’re curious to hear some other mixes, I have a couple websites:
    and http://www.beattrainproductions.com/

    Fantastic Man just found his significant other!!!
    The makers of the best mens magazin in the world: FANTASTIC MAN, published a womens mag as well.
    I am sure you will find more rad (wedding-)fashion inspiration in there than in most bridal mags ; )

    Liv is gentlewoman. What about you? What are your favorite magazines?
    I can’t wait to be done with all moving hassle and find time for magazines and books.

    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.

    Liv loves this song by Florence And The Machine.
    Especially the Remix by XX.
    I am listening to it a lot right now and think its really inspiring.
    I am also in love with the style of Florence Welch.
