 I love this fabric so much.  I call it the feather mandala.  I feel like it has magical powers.

Below are two of my current styles that were cut in this material, a dress and a top.  The dress is called the star dress and has the fantastic feature of being very flattering while gently hiding the tummy.  The top is called the ballerina top.  It is a great cleavage top and also great for breast-feeding, so send all your nursing friends to me for fashionable maternity wear.

These are so hard to portray in a picture like this.  They are much funkier on a body with a cute bootie showing under the cuff.  They are based on my wing pants that have been a huge success.  High waisted and made from Canadian rayon, these are sure to last a long time and are guaranteed not to pill!

This dress is inspired by the lines of 1920 flapper dresses (without being so boxy and shapeless).  They often had deep V patterns on the front, slicing across the bust all the way down to the stomach.  I, of course, did my own embellished version in my all time favorite color combo red and purple.  The stripe on this dress is especially interesting because it is rare to find black and blue together.  Casual, but with a touch of whimsey, this dress has been appealing to women of all ages and sizes.  Today I sold one to a 65 year old very funky lady!

Mike and I have started a little side business…. We have two apartments on beautiful rue Esplanade that we have fixed up and decorated, and we are renting them out on airbnb (see links on the right side of the page). Obviously, we can’t just furnish the place with any ‘ole furniture, so we are making it funky.  We have been re-painting and re-upholstering antique chairs.  I have been making all the bedding and …drum-roll please…..Mike and I are painting all the artwork for the walls.

Our kitchen table turned into an art studio after Victoria goes to bed.  The best part is, we have been painting together, both working on the same canvas.  Some pieces are more geometric and some more painterly, but all are colorful and joyful.

If you have family or friends coming to town and you need to know where to send them, let us host them for you!!!

Aujourd’hui je profite de cette magnifique journée pour aller à la plage d’Oka, parce que je n’ai qu’un désir : me mettre les pieds dans l’eau, marcher sur le sable, m’étendre au soleil.

Mon sac à l’épaule, mon chapeau sur la tête, mon maillot de bain sur le dos, je me dirige vers une table à l’ombre. Non, à bien y penser je préfère au soleil. Je suis due pour casser le blanc de ma peau qui en a plus que besoin.

J’installe ma serviette, sors mon lunch et prends une bouchée. Un morceau de poulet de chez Rico, accompagné d’une salade de légumes faite maison. Rien de moins qu’un concassé de céleri, persil, ciboulette et roquette, agrémenté d’une macédoine de fèves germées, avec un soupçon de sarrasin germé et déshydraté pour le croquant, de Juliennes des dames, petites fleurs sauvages comestibles, pour le piquant et un effiloché d’algues Nori séchées. Le tout arrosé d’une vinaigrette à base d’huile de tournesol première pression, pressée à froid, biologique, d’un peu de moutarde de Dijon, de jus de citron et d’orange.

Je me régale, les yeux en direction du lac qui est parsemé d’audacieux qui se baignent malgré la température de l’eau, qui est un peu trop froide à mon goût.

Rassasiée, je prends le temps de regarder autour et qu’est-ce que je vois, juste derrière moi? Un sac Katrin Leblond Design.

Il trône parmi une serviette, une petite chaise de plage aux rayures bleues, un parasol aux taches impressionnistes. On a laissé traîner de délicates sandales de cuir brun avec des appliqués de couleur et une bouteille d’eau Évian.

J’aurais pu me retrouver n’importe où sur cette longue plage, mais non, je suis assise en terrain connu. Il faut le faire!

Une vingtaine de minutes plus tard, deux magnifiques jeunes femmes se dirigent vers le fameux sac. Je les laisse se sécher, s’installer, me lève et m’enquiert sur la propriétaire du sac.

Il appartient à Ariane Manuguerra-Gagné, qui a acheté une robe turquoise chez Katrin Leblond l’été dernier, pour célébrer le point final mis à sa thèse de maîtrise, et qu’elle a porté à l’occasion d’un cocktail parent-professeur. Elle ajoute qu’on l’a beaucoup complimenté sur son originalité.

Je la visualise et je ne doute pas que le drapé de la robe lui a donné de l’élégance. Que l’unique bretelle multicolore, qui a mis en évidence sa chair ferme, l’a rendue séduisante.

Ses yeux sont intelligents, son sourire resplendissant, sa façon d’être ouverte sur le monde. Je suis convaincue qu’il n’y a pas que la robe qu’on a complimenté. Pour moi, elle incarne cette nouvelle génération de femmes toutes en beauté, fières de l’être, dont la puissance intérieure leur sert de levier pour aller vers l’autre, les autres. Pour offrir le meilleur d’elles-même et devenir une maille tissée serré dans leur environnement.

C’est quand même toute une synchronicité cette rencontre, alors que je travaille à la réédition du livre “Un vêtement habillé d’une intention” publié l’an dernier à l’occasion du 5e anniversaire de la boutique de Katrin et qui devrait sortir en magasin au courant de l’été.

I love making wedding dresses.  This one, however, was extra special for me.

Becky has been a client of mine for a few years now.  When she came into my shop and told me she was getting married and …would I make her wedding dress, I was thrilled!  Yay!  How exciting!  She tried on my ready to wear gown off the rack and it fit perfectly.  I told her I would embellish the front of the bustier to match who she is.  She gave me carte blanche to do what I wanted.  I promised I would make it pretty, and I would make it “Becky”.  Here’s the dress!

The back laces up and I hand sewed beads and sequins onto the bodice.  I also made the veil with a small row of hand sewn beads at the top of the barrette.

In my company we call this the sexy dress…and it is tryly a versatile little number.  Both dress or tunic (depending on your height or boldness), this dress is also great for maternity.  Long enough to cover the belly comfortably and stretchy enough to wear all the way into the third trimester!

The prints are all on a rayon base with Lycra, so it is super soft and feels natural.  Basically it is a long t-shirt dress.  Pair it with flip flops for a casual pool-side afternoon, or wear with skinny jeans and a bolero to go down to the jazz fest.

The back has a bit of a scoop neckline and the dress is reversible for those who like a lower decoltée in the front.

Embellishing with textiles and thread. That’s what I am best know for.  It is truly my specialty.   Drawing with the sewing machine and creating my own 3-D prints.  It all started because I wanted prints that no-one else was using.  As a designer in Montreal, I noticed that a lot of the other designers had the same fabrics in their collection and I found that frustrating.  The embellishments and appliquées I made were my way of creating something unique that no one else was doing.  Since then, my style has evolved and become it’s own unique brand.

You know the rules for summer weddings: don’t outshine the bride, don’t wear all white, don’t wear your favourite little black dress, but you really want to wear a black dress….well, I have the perfect little black dress for you!

This delightful woman walked into my store and decided try on my new short wedding dress… what resulted was a spontaneous fashionista moment.  I added the bibi (fascinator/headpiece), the cardigan and the nude leaf embellished shoes and she was so stunning we all decided it was time for a little fashion shoot on St-Laurent.  The sun had come out after days of rain and I took advantage of the beautiful moment and the beautiful girl!

 When I saw this fabric it immediately made me think of the winter Dolce Gabbana collection.  The outfit is so high fashion it knocks your tights off!  I am smitten with the moss green colour and the snowflake knit pattern.  I love the ruffles and shape of the jacket.  It is especially great on short waisted women and it add a delightful volume to small breasts.  The skirt goes below the knee and it cut in a chevron pattern with stripes lining up.  The orange and the black trim are velvet ribbons sewn on adding contrast and highlights.

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.
