The Somerset House which in the past has been home to wonderful fashion exhibitions like Lanvin and Rankin has just opened the Valentino exhibit. Be prepared for a parade of exquisitely crafted haute couture pieces all of which have been hand stitched and beaded. Vintage hand made couture?...Yes at D&Me we have decided heaven is just around the corner.
Good thing we have our little piece of heaven in the show room, of course in the classic Valentino red:
One of the most fun parts of Christmas is the parties, where you get to relax and enjoy the people you spend most of your time with.
What does a D&Me party look like you might ask. It was a fantastic evening with Marcelle's legendary cooking. When asked she said "when it comes to my cooking more is more" and that's the way we like it.
Not only was the food gorgeous but it was served in the cutest silverware ever.
And the two stars of the night looking every bit the part: Marcelle the hostess with the mostess and Noriko the amazing seamstress/caroller for the evening.
Last weekend Marcelle went to Marrakesh for the wedding of all our dreams and took with her some of her own creations to dazzle the guests.
The girls all looked stunning in the various D&M looks.
And then They appeared in front of Marcelle. These amazing 8 foot tall orchid peacocks nearly brought us to tears (of happiness). All Marcelle could do after the sightings was figure out how they could fit on the plane.
If that's not got you trying to DIY this yet, have a look at the wall filled with thousands of white roses. That is definitely going on our wish list.
Just to keep in theme the ceremony took place with a gorgeous backdrop of white orchids. And of course the only thing more beautiful than the magical setting was the blushing bride.
Last week we had our D&Me photoshoot for the season to come. Everything was set up and photographer Jay ready to snap. But none of us were prepeared for the otherworldly beauty of Tatiana, our one-time-only-never-done-it-before breathtaking model.
Here's a taster of what's to come...
As the day progressed Jay made use of the entire space to get that angle just right.
Oh did we mention she has 3 kids! We loved her rings bearing their names.
And inevitably after a while fans stopped and stared by the window...
Summer is here to stay (fingers crossed!!) and what better way to
celebrate than with these new cool shades from Essie!! We love this
shimmering lilac colour.. Come by the store and choose your favorite!
