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!

What is love?

.. baby, don't hurt me, don't hurt me... OK, I know, it's lame but I couldn't help it. Really. Today I want to share my new watch and talk about upcoming Valentine's Day. My latest Instagram post is very romantic and everything but I do want to keep this particular post more down on Earth. For me love is everything and more. I can see and feel love in so many things but I do see it in this particular person everyday and I see all over him. For me he is Love. I have received watch from Nordgreen last week and I wear it all the time. I love the minimal style, my favorite deep shade of blue and lightness on my wrist. Nordgreen is Copenhagen based minimalist brand. It pays a lot of attention to our environment and tries to be as sustainable as they currently can which I personally adore. They are a sustainable Danish brand, who works hard to provide environmentally-friendly packaging with upcycled felt & cartons, carbon-neutral shipping, and to give back throug

Green Sign

I wore this outfit on numerous occasions but never took photos. It's so comfortable and easy to assemble I didn't even feel it as an outfit until the moment I realized I am lacking content for my blog. It was a little chilly but the sun was shining brightly which made me definitely want to go. The photos turned out lovely. We took right at the local park entrance with vintage wooden sign stating the park name. You might notice my irregular hair here. yes I am 100% strait hair person at all times. But there I braided my hair went and kept it braided (two braids if you are curious) for 24 hours. It lasted for about an hour but I enjoyed it nevertheless. My whole family has curly hair, everyone but me. I don't mind really but sometimes I wish I had I curly at least as curly as you see above (I did always wanted my sister's curls which is something between of 3c and 4a I think). Also coordination of green is still new to me. I though green is not my color when I was

CPM: Profashion Masters

Profashion Masters is a contest held annually during Collection Premier Moscow (CPM). This year it was the only catwalk in main program (Body and Beach as usual kept separate catwalk fashion show, you can go through it in this post). I was honored to attend physically to the finals and makes photos to share it with you. the theme is 'coat'. Coat as the say is the hardest clothes there is to master. It amazed the professionals how good the coats on the catwalk were made. A lot worked with prints and made bold moves. Some turned to ethnic roots which I personally absolutely love. My outfit was comfortable and warm, it was a very cold day so I wanted to make sure I feel my best. I wear a lot more greens lately and this top is absolutely gorgeous both color and material. My pants are quite old but I love how warm and comfortable they are. I am happy I put on my iGlassesshop glasses on so I could see every little detail on the coats. I was wearing: Monki top, pins and pants
