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!

Estet Fashion Week 2021

During my time of being a blogger I hardly missed Estet Fashion Week. This year was regular in that matter, I attended it as well. Actually I am quite happy I did because I spent most of it on Zanzibar island, enjoy my sunny vacation. It was actually worthy of reduction of fashion experiences. But I was very excited to mix the two joys and still watch Estet Fashion Week and look through the styles. This time I watched gown show by Indira Badiyar who takes specialty is formal and evening dresses and super adorable kids fashion show by Oksana Kazakova inspired by vintage pieces. I have to admit I enjoyed both. My outfit is not as cool or fancy as I would want it to be mainly because after my vacation with very simple and effortless looks I didn't feel like wearing too much items, opting for simplicity. Also my skin on hands is not perfect so I wanted to cover it. It also severely limits my options of clothes because I mostly have my hands bare. It was comfortable though, I f

MKMM

RU: Не знаю, как вы, а я обожаю конкурсы в сфере моды. А когда я слышу МКММ, я точно уверена, конкурсанты меня не разочаруют. Всегда самые яркие стили, креатив, а так же горды и счастливые лица дизайнеров-участников. Этот конкурс стал трамплином для многих участников, поэтому часто говорят, что попасть в финал уже можно сказать победа. Честно говорю, я не могу не согласиться и от всей души поздравляю вышедших в финал. ENG: I love a good fashion contest and when I hear MKMM I am sure I will not be disappointing. Always the best possible styles, creativity all the way and happy faces of the contestants. The contest became a trampoline to many designers and they say being at the finals in a win already. Frankly, I couldn't agree more.   RU: В этот раз более 20 участников представяли свои коллекции, и я уверена, что жюри было не просто выбирать. По крайней мере, мне было сложно выделить своих личных фаворитов. Темой конкурса было "На Обратной Стороне Луны", и мне кажется, у

Circus

Hello! Last time I went to the circus 9 years ago and also in March. You probably wonder how come I remember it so well. Actually we went to the circus thanks to my parents the day we applied to get married (in Russia you had to (or still have I am not sure) apply to get your marriage registered two months in advance). My own parents been super worried and nervous back in their day and they celebrate the application day even more than actual wedding date. I think it's super adorable. That's why when I had an opportunity to visit circus I immediately said say. I was provided tickets to the circus of dancing fountains 'Aquamarine' Moscow by 55555 club. It was super awesome because not only I got the ticket for myself I had more to share. So I took my husband and my sis' family to the circus. They say kids love it the most so I just had to take my 5 year old flexible niece and my suddenly very grown up 12 year old niece with me. By the way, the latter shocked me being
