Here are three of the drummers from ODAYA wearing costume sleeves I designed for them. They performed last night at the Rialto theatre for a Women’s day concert. They were fantastic. I admire the work they do and love the music they make. I guess you could say I am a fan.
I feel honoured to have made them these red ribbon sleeves. I felt it was important to decorate the part of their bodies that are in motion when they drum. They looked graceful and powerful. Below they are doing a song together with Maha choir and other musicians from the whole evening. It was a great finale!
Have I mentioned how great it is to be this warm in the winter! And to be pretty and colourful! This coat is made of the softest thick wool imaginable. You can wear it directly against your skin without it feeling scratchy. You can pull the collar up and it becomes a hood.
It is extra magical because it also wards off the EVIL EYE. If you look closely, you will see the row of eyes down the centre with eyelashes and blue centres.
Ohh this dress is so so pretty. Look, it made me dance around in the alley.
It is from our latest shipment of Ivko goodies.
The bibi (by MonBibi) is $35.50 and the wristies (made in the KL studio) are $39.00. More wristies below.
This is my new “Lune” blazer. It matches many of my Fall collection skirts and pants. It comes in black with white stitching, bright cherry red, soft textured denim, kaki with turquoise and heathered pink. Here I am wearing the navy with red stitching and the new Ivko bubble mini.
The flowers remind me of Frieda’s infamous hairdo that she defiantly wore to to represent the traditions of her people.
The Day of the dead is a traditional Mexican holiday to remember and celebrate our ancestors.
