PRE LFW AW12 – HARDCOUR COUTURE
There has been SOOOOO much going on, we have been neglecting our blog!! Will start at the run up to LFW and fill ya in from there…
Here is a snippy of our ‘door of dreams’ the raw sketches and fabric samples that our AW12 (‘The Lithium Party’) was born.
There was muchos madness happening in the studio in the few weeks before LFW, but with everyone here at OC heights all pulling together and working their sweet little toosh’s off, there was the most AMAZEROUS atmosphere. Love how everyone just pops by all the time, big up’s to Mhairi, Richie and Laura for being true friends and coming to help, bringing us sustenance and cuddling us (also telling us off) when we are being drama queens (or naughty).
There were so many of us all cozy round the pattern tables, falling over each other and getting lost in the miles and miles of GORGE ruffles that seemed to swallow the studio up!!!!
We had bodies studding, cutting and folding roses, people spray painting, gathering METERS of fabric – the insanely talented Jenieve Berlin Milinery special guSsted us a few times, gracing us with her mad sparkling skills. Mhairi from bonnie Bling would turn up in her crazy ass gas mask, using her scary cancer causing glue to make us super fantastic new knuckles. We love the hustle and bustle in the run up to LFW and the cool people that come by to cheer us up.
Want to say a MA-HAA-SIIIVVEEEEEEEE thank you to our wonderous team for being such an amazing help special love and thanks go to – Eilidh, Libby and Gillian. Late nights, early starts and mountains of flowers… Miss Madara is our sewing Oracle and whenever she arrives makes us feel safe again, thank you to Mads for your machine like late nights and drying our tears.
After weeks of 14 hour days and nana naps everything was finally beautiful and reality started to sink in….
Let the games begin !!!
