“Pearl” is part of my line “Pearl’s Orangery”, which I slowly started to develop over the last year. It features formal and semi-formal occasion attire designed for fresh autumn and spring months. The result represents my personal artistic interpretation of a fusion of the contemporary Scandinavian “Hygge” approach and the neo-classical Gustavian style, both of which I am equally inspired by since many years.
The first impression that almost everyone has, is that this spring I created a wedding gown for one of the customers recommended by one of the best wedding planners in Salzburg, Austria. And every time, there is a wow effect when they find out that I actually designed the dress FOR the wedding planner.
A ten day escape to Gozo Island was exactly what I needed, after an insanely intense work schedule before and during the Fashion Week. Malta welcomed us with everything we knew it will offer and were longing for: a warm salty breeze, solar energy, beautiful country and sea side views, calmness.
The Fashion Week ended four days ago and while I am sitting on our holiday garden suite’s terrace, I fondly recollect images and impressions from a week full of high spirits, new & familiar faces, lots of talks, fashion and design.
Sabbatical or a sabbatical (from Hebrew: shabbat (שבת) (i.e., Sabbath), in Latin: sabbaticus, in Greek: sabbatikos (σαββατικός), literally a “ceasing") is a rest from work, or a break, often lasting from one month to a year.
