Here is my new zip-up available in black, grey, blue and fuchsia.  It is a blend of sporty and dressy.  The zipper piping is made by sewing strips of silk and knits onto printed cotton and then cutting this material into strips crosswise in the other direction.   The result is a nice splash of colour.  Textile jewelry in a way.  This jacket has a two way zipper, thumb holes on the sleeve and pockets.  Yes, pockets.  No garment should be without them.

 I love it when people ask me if what they are wearing is TOO MUCH.

In fashion there is no such thing as too much.  It is all about context and occasion and mood.  Sometimes, and in this case especially for a wedding, I believe you really are allowed to go all out and be too much.  I have been designing and making custom wedding dresses for 6 years now and every bride presents a new challenge.  The dress below was designed for one of my fashion shows.  The woman who purchased it saw it in the store window one evening when we were closed.  She came back twice with friends just to make sure it was not too bold.  Below she is photographed with her daughter (who is also wearing one of my art dresses) and her father.

I met a fairy bride yesterday and she wants a fairy dress!!!

Since I had to spend 5 hours of my day waiting for a Bell technician yesterday, I took advantage of that time to do some full colour sketches.  This amount of time was a treat I rarely indulge in – I opened the color pencil box and they were all still long and perfectly sharpened.

Here are the three sketches I have sent to my future bride, along with photos of the materials I would suggest.

 

Crinoline

Fairy points

Petal dress

The greens

Green rolls of fabric

Green, Ivory with a touch of lavender

Silks

All fabrics I feel could be appropriate for this project…I especially love the ruffle chartreuse mesh at the far right.

I’ll let you know what she chooses:)

Ivko sweater and We love colors tights

Fall fashion is better than Spring fashion.  There.  I said it.

I know we are all sad that Summer is slowly winding down, but it is also exciting to look at beautiful wool sweaters with roses on them.  In this look I am wearing the new Fall 2014-2015 Ivko collection.  The sweater and skirt are Ivko, the socks are We love colors and the shoes are Camper.

Robe turquoise Montreal

One of my regular clients came in yesterday to shop the new collection and the sales.  She just sent me these pictures of a wedding last summer where she was a bridesmaid.  I made the turquoise dresses for all three  of these lovely ladies.  Don’t they look spectacular!

My newest creation:  a purple wedding dress!

How happy was i to make this dress?  Very happy.  I even did it at a discount because I was so inspired by the idea of making it.  All the lace was hand cut and appliqued with the help of double sided fusing.  Choosing a stitch color that didn’t show was tricky.  We had to choose a dusty lavender that didn’t show on the mesh with the purple shining through.  The lovely bride is getting married in France; lucky girl!  Blessing on her wedding.

The hoodie is made from silk chiffon and ivory mesh with sheer leaves appliqued onto the sleeve on one side.

The dress is a silk bustier, but we customized it by adding fullness to the skirt; layers of shredded lace and silk to fill it out and add volume.

Here they are, all piling up on the table.

Hearts that take waaaay too long to make!  They are pieced from little cut pieces of silk chiffon.  Then we spray them with water and fill all the gaps and keep working that way until they become full fluffy multicolor heart explosions!

Appliqued onto tank tops, they come to life.

Here you see them at the early stages of the process.  We sew them onto black or white Lycra mesh so that they retain their elasticity.  The technique is quite complicated.

Before we sew it onto a top, it gets a little haircut to clean up the edges.

What a mess in the studio when these are in production.  Soon we will be making little mini heart pins.  Can’t wait.

Nature Forest Bride

This dress was made for Andrée and is the first example of the Divine dress from my Spring 2014 collection.

It is a layer of sheer silk chiffon over ivory jersey.  We stitched linen lace onto the under layer (not visible in the photo).  The top panel of the dress is a piece of vegetable dyed silk and the bride added some beads to the neckline herself.

Blessings on this beautiful couple.

May your love last long and grow stronger every day.

Katrin Leblond Spring Dress and Ivko cardigan

This is my feather mandala dress.  I feel like it has magical powers and is charged with the purpose of making women feel beautiful and powerful.  But that is another story…. I wanted to show you how incredible it looks with this light brown Ivko cardigan.  It is gorgeous.  They were made to be together!  I always love it when two designers’ collections go so well together.  I have always felt that Ivko sweaters were designed for my store.  They complement my clothes so perfectly.

That being said, the Spring collections are in the store now!  Ivko, KL, Arianne, Metamorphose, Yoga jeans and Ayala Bar.

If you want to shop for any of these brands, check out our online store.  Shop here!
