We held a beautiful fashion show between Boutique Kaarina K, House of Elliott and my LadyBohemia Boutique, at the Helsinki Contemporary art gallery. I'll show you all the beauty, but also tell u about the disasters just about to happen..
This dress worn worn by the radiant Sahra is still available, at half price until 12.12. (our LittleXmas party) - now at 250e. Very glamorous, open back, hand embroidered with lace patterns and pearls. Flawless, despite having been worn once at the show.
A gorgeous silk dress, delicately embroidered by little pearls, adorned with a silk ribbon... The hemline is silk lace. This one is a unique piece.
The coat is entirely made of mink. Highest most luxurious quality ever. I have one piece left, price 495e.
Elena is holding a coat that was sold out, one piece of the knit dress adorned with beads remains.
Our beautiful Valeria in black lace. No words needed.
Bella Sahra wearing the same model as Valeria above, only the fabric is so different, giving a different vibe. This one is slightly shimmery rose gold. You can see more photos in our webshop:
This unique Italian shirt was sold out before the show started... But beautiful fitting trousers we have, in many colors ;)
A French fur coat entirely embroidered and decorated very elegntly... A treasure of a piece. A dreamy shade of hazy blue... Unique piece.
Valeria in her boho lace <3
The most beautiful Sahra in this world, as she just showed up in this dress and shawl they were immediately sold out.
An Ode to Freedom! Thank you wonderful Liisa Tirronen, for sponsoring us with the best of sparkling, created to celebrate our 100 years of independence <3.
Happy customer, happy shopkeeper. Oftentimes, new friends <3
Sahra and a shawl of silk and velvet. Some women are just created to wear the most beautiful gowns. In her case, I definitely don't rule out minidresses either..
My beloved support team. My sweetheart Oona, the best Annika in the world. The calmest, most positive, effective and lovely people in the world. They just look at me in the eyes and say 'Hey, we'll make it work. It's gonna be okay.' And I actually believe them as I know they believe it.
My darling friends. I don't know in which gutter I'd lay in without you.
This time, there was a Slush event elsewhere in town, and slush snow everywhere, during this very evening of our important fashion show... Meaning we couldn't pre order or get a taxi. Having tried to get a lift for almost 2 hours, some10 minutes before the event, most of our stuff was still at our store... Suitcases for the fashion show filled with clothes, clothes racks, table, accessories, shoes, decoration... etc. etc. Way too much to carry to the gallery by any means.
Oona remained calm and fixed it all.
Annika went through three parties during that day... And still smiling...
Oona and I finished off the evening at 3 AM. Not partying, dragging, carrying, pushing and pulling our stuff back to the store from the gallery.
Around midnight we realised neither of us had eaten anything during the whole day.
Rarely has food tasted better than that take out.... And rarely has laughter been more out of control.
Jewelry by House of Elliott <3.
Thank you all my friends for making this dream come true. Much love to you all:
