Sugar Lane. The interview.

This is a very important interview for me. Because this time I had a chance to talk to wonderful fellow blogger about her designs, wonderful clothes, ideas and past. many of my readers know her as well - Sugar Lane. I don't think there is much I can tell you about her because she'll tell it to you better so read the post and jump to her blog Sugar Lane

1 How did you start the line? How long did you plan that? Was it a longterm dream or the idea just came up to your mind and worked?
I started “Sugar Lane Design” a year back, but it was something I wanted to do earlier. A design line had always been on my mind, even before studying fashion design; I started experimenting with silks in 2009, while I did my MBA in India. I wanted to design something special, unique, and use all those wonderful Indian silks that we can barely find in Europe. So I started selecting vintage fabrics… turbans were the first thing I came up with, as they’re my key accessory, but then I wanted to do something more personal, some garment where you could really enjoy the touch of silk, and that’s how the robes were born!
2 Does blogging help you with your designs?
Blogging helps, it’s like a shopping window. The Internet is really useful when you start a business, especially if you are selling online. Blogging also involves visiting many other websites, so that also helps during the creative process; it’s a huge source of inspiration. However, I try not to overload sugarlaneblog.com with my designs, I don’t want to bore my readers with self promotion, so I just post about it when there is a new collection or I include some garments on my personal style posts eventually.
3 Which were your first memories regarding fashion?
My mom is also a fashion designer, so most of my childhood I was surrounded by fabrics and threads… I loved arranging and classifying buttons at her studio. I got my first sewing machine when I was 5, it was a kids version in pink, turquoise and yellow, but it actually worked!
4 Tell us about the first piece you ever designed
Well, apart from mini dresses for all my Barbies, the first piece that I designed 100% was my favorite silk coat. I fell in love with the brocade pink and green heirloom silk, and I knew it had to be mine, so I got it and after a lot of thinking I turned it into a coat. I fell so proud when I tried it on, I guess that was the moment I decided this is what I wanted to do.
You can see the coat here: http://www.sugarlaneblog.com/2012/11/bright-in-silk.html


5 A little survey for Inside and Outside blog: some say talented in fashion kids usually try to make their toys look better (repainting for example) did you do something like that? And if you did then what?
LOL, I love repainting! Actually in my family we have a saying: “Paint any reality that you don’t like”. It’s a metaphor for life, but I use it a lot for walls, furniture or anything that I don’t really like J I don’t think it has to do with fashion or talent, it’s just that creative people can’t stop reinventing their surroundings. My DIY section on the blog is a good example; it’s usually about fashion, but sometimes I feel like painting a door or making candle holders and I just do it!

You have got a new hairstyle, but don't know how to take care of your hair extensions? Today we give you some great tips about how to treat your new locks in order to preserve their beautiful shine and how to keep them form tangling up. Hair extensions are a great way to quickly get yourself a new look. A new hairstyle can completely transform you and can give you confidence as well.

Women's Success Awards

November 29ty there was a great awards ceremony in Moscow. We've been celebrating the Women's Success Awards by Women's Time magazine. Not only it is important to appreciate the work and achievements of people no matter of their sex but setting an additional pattern makes appreciation wider in general. I was honored to attend the awards and want to share my experience with you. RU: 29 Ноября в Москве прошла отличная церемония награждения. Мы отмечали Women's Success Awards журнала Women's Time. Мне кажется, что важно не только отмечать достижения и работу людей вне зависимости их пола, но несколько сузить выбор иногда, чтобы посмотреть на достижения более широко. Я была очень рада посетить эту церемонию и разделить мои впечатления с моими читателями. For the event I've chosen a long dress (it's awards after all) from my fellow blogger, heeled boots to keep my feet warm as it recently got even colder in Moscow and a funn

Welcome

I received a lot of questions about my relocation and my new place. I am so touched by the questions and attention, it warms my heart really. Lately I had a perfectly good reason to share my collaboration with Photowall who provided my new home with art. They also have a gift for you: 25 off + free shipping on every order with lyoshathegirl25. Don't thank me, thank Photowall and order from them you need canvas art, posters or artful wall paper for your accent wall. I think it my whole apartment look real and living despite missing stuff here and there (for example, my chairs are still being delivered, hi Amazon). The baby room has nothing done about but I am in no rush and completely chill about it. Call me weird but I see no motivation and generally am not interested. Our nightstands turned out to be a huge debate and we have spent so much time looking for options! Having it finally ordered made me feel super happy as it's the last major piece. We are eyeing a tiny table fo
