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.

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!

TedHair inspiration

Lately we talked about beautiful hair and the way you can alter your looks with artificial hair. We discussed the possibility of adding locks. It looks great, esp if you can place them properly you can achieve interesting variation of hair. For example you can add some crazy color to your hair which is very trendy but could harm your hair more (you have to bleach your hair first if you are not naturally blond) than regular dye. Actually we don't have to try hard to do that. Why don't we pick pre-dyed hair instead of regular colored option? When we think about that more we come to some Internet surfing. One if valuable option you may find online are TedHair virgin hair  Today have partnered with them to bring you the inspiration. Here are wonderful options I found online. 

Do you like ombré hair? I like the result but never wanted to do that with my own hair. Practically I'm not sure if I like it on my hair day by day. That's why I think hair extensions with that hair d…

FollowTheFabrika announcement

Сегодня день анонсов. Уже очень скоро состоится новый этап моего любимого модного проекта FollowTheFabrika, а ещё раньше пресс-завтрак, посвященный ему. А это подробная информация о событии от устроителей!
16 августа состоится пресс-завтрак проекта FollowTheFabrika в одном из лучших мест столицы - кафе Есенин!
Это кафе в самом «сердце» Москвы на Лубянке, которое передает дух широкой русской души, как в интерьере, так и в блюдах. К нашему счастью сейчас очень «модно» быть начитанными, и цитировать классиков. В собственной библиотеке кафе можно читать или слушать стихи, устраивать поэтические соревнования, как это делал наш любимый поэт с Владимиром Маяковским здесь же, на Новой площади. Поэтому пресс-завтрак самого модного и самого российского fashion-проекта FollowTheFabrika пройдёт именно здесь!
Напомним, что «FollowTheFabrika» (www.facebook.com/thefabrikamoscow) - это механизм, позволяющий дизайнерам одежды получать грандиозный опыт и множество необходимых контактов для дальнейшей р…

Zaful wishlist

Let me get it straight. Today I want to share with you an inspirational post and it will be inspired by plus size bikini. Today is Firyay and even though I don't really work 5/2 so my schedule is kinda messed up I do have a lot of joy for the weekend. May be because it's other schedule working for me, may be it's because tons of activities in the city or may be because doing the weekend we have a stop on our house improvements (tubes changing and such) and finally we can have some full relax and go anywhere we want. Because of al of this and also because it's summer I really think about gathering my friends and hit on the beach.  To do so I am going to wear my new swimsuit however I do think I need more of them. I currently have only 2 pairs and improvised combo of leftovers from destroyed bikinis. I'm hoping to get some more and while I'm slowly picking my favorites I decided to share my thoughts and choices with you while I'm filling my wishlist. To do so…
