Hussein Chalayan

Hussein Chalayan Bonded Jersey Gillet, $1,275 at Eluxury

Hussein Chalayan Silk Drape Insert Dress, $940 at Eluxury

For a company that's purportedly going out of business, Eluxury certainly knows how to send mixed signals, starting with showcasing new designers that its clientele is sure to drool over with undeniable lust. Although I'm not too familiar with this British Turk, I'm a quick study, and after perusing some of his previous collections, I'm also in love. These two glorious pieces are soft yet architectural, and they fit completely with the springy Spring mood that's about to descend upon us as soon as we thaw from this deep freeze we're in.

I’m Roberta, a young italian dressmaker.
I’ve recently created with my sister (a very excellent fashion designer) our personal blog, where you can see all of our new creations: we design handmade clothing and accessories.
I’d like so much if you come to visit it!
Could you maybe dedicate me a post, giving me the opportunity to make known our creations, exposing them on tour blog.
In this way you can also talk about all the emergent and unknown new artists like me and my sisters.

PS: can you add me between your links, just to draw attention to some of your followers!

Thank you very much,
