Hello,everyone,all my dear friends!
 It's very exciting to join the Link Party by very special wonderful blogfriend Anita of Castel Crowns & Cottages. 
 
 ''We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.''~~Evelyn Dunbar

I invite you to a very memorable and absolutely irresitible place..... in Granada,Andalusia.You can ask my WHY?....
 Oh,I have many reasons to tell you why!:)*
 You can feel this atmosphere immediately when the city Granada in drive....



As soon as you drive in,you can smell the Sun and the air of Spain and city Granada...
Puerto de Alvira,welcome.


And all those vibrant colors around you,which makes you so lively:)))*



.....here you live on the street to a full late evening enjoying the life in all the small and simple things!


Balmy nights, delicious food and of course tasteful wine made ​​you travel pefect,guys!:)))*


Passionate flamenco dance takes you to a world full of love and flame!


At once, I walked down the street and saw this shop....
I can't resist it not to share it with you,my dear ladies!:)*


I could not get my eyes off and do not get enough of this particular beautiful wedding and evening dresses.
Pronovias is a family firm that began life in El Suizo,a prestigious Barcelona store that specialised in lace,embroidery and high-quality silk fabrics founded by Alberto Palatchi Bienveniste in 1922.
And today or the day:
50 years after its creation,Pronovias is the worldwide leader of the bridal industry.
Mostly dreamy wedding dress,always devine and inspirational to me...............



These images are from Pronovias website,new collection 2015...


And now I came to the highest point of my story.
ALHAMBRA is a relly special place in the world that invites us feel and reflect....


We made our journey over there one year ago and those time is truly never-to-be-forgotten for me!

(This one image from internet...)


Throughtout its history the Alhambra has experienced many transformations,Granada keeping testimonies of each period.
The decision to build the Palce in th Alhambra symbolized the triumph of Chrisianity over Islam.



All the time you spent in this place drags you along to the distant history,you just kept silence by all these handmade monuments....Not ot describe in any woords!


You can smell the scents of history.....






And irresistible aroma's of all flowers around of you:)*




Isn't it a Paradise on Earth?!....


May be my story is very long,but I have tale you only a very little part of....:)*

My Passion-my Proffesion,my WALK OF LIFE......

Hello,all my dear friends!
It's been a while since I'm going to make my new post..
Had an order from the customer,wich one was not really easy for me:)*
Not because the fabric( really beautiful off-white wool),not because of making special patterns....
But because of a very touched me story behind of it.


At first I got one image from the fashion magazine,where I saw one of the beautifulest coat of Mulberry,you can only dream about it....
And my client would like the same:)
She told me her little story.
When she was a very little girl,her Mom wearing the same style coat and she kept those coat for years in her wardrobe as a wonderful memory!
It washer dream that she would ever get the chance to make a coat,like this,a very special coat just for her!:)*
I may not explain what meaning exactly wordplay : custom made because the whole process is beyond special.



''Handcrafted-made skillfully by hand....''
This will allow you to read in the dictionary if do you intrested about handmade pieces at all.
I feel in love with these project because I want make some new and totally new patterns,create absolutely new forms,but it should be very close to the original shape of those treasure of my client.
Oh,I love my proffesion so very much!
Yes,I do!!!
There are gazillion hours of work...........


Making the toile.
Toile is a word from the fashion world. Originally it means 'canvas' in French. In the tailoring is a test model of the pattern being tested. This sample is what you get attracted at the first pass. Toiles never be cut from the final substance, because that would be too expensive. They are often made ​​of linen, cotton or muslin. During the first pass to your body changes to the coupe. We call molding.



So much little inspirational houres............


And....Oh,my Goodness to be able to find the right form....


Though far from finished,because of may be too perfectionist in my heart,especially for details,wich are SO important in my work!




And how much love and warmth you need to not be able to iron them ''death''....I mean,with a very hot iron construction you can make yours work completely destroyed!
But it's not!



My wonderful client is very happy with this little treasure:)))*
And I'm in seventh heaven!
I LOVE MY WORK,my ''Walk of  Life''.


Wish all of you mostly beautiful Summer days,girls!
Much Love,
Violetta.
