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!

Romantic and fierce

I don't really feel like posting something big today but i wanted to make an update. As I was talking about my night at the philharmonic. So why not? I will be sharing my outfit for that day.

I madly love the skirt, it makes me feel so cozy. I am still not completely sure if I like the outfit but it sure is OK. At least the top is making it appropriate to listen to some classical music. I love Philharmonic and it is a common place to go on a date for us. Both me and my husband have deep love towards orchestras and it is always a big joy for us to be able to enjoy it.Holding hands listening to timeless pieces - what ever could be more romantic? I love tend to choose heavy and disturbing pieces mostly from German and Polish authors or modern Asian lightweight and strictness pieces. On a whim we chose a concert with Navarro and Ravel. It splendid, just what I needed and even a little more. Pure joy!




Enjoy your weekend! How are you going to spend it?

Nivea Review

First of all please remember I am not a beauty blogger. All the opinions are my own, it is how I see it after two weeks of usage.

Two weeks ago I received products from Nivea to try. It was a facial cream and deodorant. In short: I liked both products and will most likely buy the facial cream for myself.
deodorant. It works nicely for daily life. the scent is faint and neutral.  The bottle is comfortable and small enough to fit in my rather tiny palm. It is easy to switch so safe off position. However if you need to go to gym, do some cycling, running or yoga you might want something stronger. Cream. The texture is everything here! Soft, light and see through. It doesn't feel like mask on my face and hydrates my skin for sure. It doesn't make skin look oily, it doesn't shine. The scent is very faint and I can't really identify it which is good because I normally try to avoid smelly stuff, especially lavender. Oh and the cream is 100ml. A big one! You don't need a …

MBFWRussia, day 5

And so it ended on my blog as well. Final day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia was special to me. Not only because I got to see Nikolay Legenda's show (one of my favorite) but also because I went to the fashion show with fantastic company my husband and my mother. The best company ever! I could not be happier! Nikolay Legenda's show was mostly focused on men fashion and diversity. I can only say I am all in. The models were fantastic and clothes looked so cool! I wish I could wear it all or at least make husband wear it all.









Second show for the day was from Diana Arno. I really liked the coloring scheme and again models there. The closing gown looked overwhelmingly fantastic. Love it! the collection also was HUGE! So much work and so much style. I think it cover needs of clothes for year ahead. You will not get bored I am sure.








Do you like my outfit? I wore a bit serious dress but I tried to tune it down with flat shoes, hat, choker, straw bag and make up. Overall it was …
